Just before the new year I had talked about highlights of 2018, the good, the bad, the ugly...and by ugly, the Tide Pod Challenge topped the list. This discussion was followed by a hopeful plea that we will not have to hear about another one of these idiotic and frankly, extremely dangerous challenges for a very long time, if not ever!
Then on January 2 (yes, the second day of the new year), I see a Tweet from Netflix warning people about the dangers of the Bird Box Challenge.
If you are unfamiliar with the viral new Netflix original film, Bird Box, in a nutshell, it is about the world slowly coming to an end when entities of sorts, cause people to take their own lives, when they are seen. Therefore, in order to survive, you must stay blindfolded at all times.
Yes, you guessed it, the Bird Box Challenge is to do every day things...blindfolded, and of course with all asinine challenges of late, people are not just eating dinner or brushing their teeth blindfolded. They are attempting to do things like ride escalates, cross the street and drive.
Is it just me, or can anyone else watch this and NOT be completely disgusted by the shear stupidity of it all?
