    I hear the latest craze by teens is to squirt a flammable onto their body and light themselves on fire. Is this just media hype or is it a real problem? I don't even like to watch the videos on TV showing it. What's wrong with you young bucks.

    This is news to me but I can't say I'm shocked. Kids these days, least some of them, have bad heads. I don't know when it became cool to implant horns on ones skull, hang from needles through your back, be lit on fire, ect. All nuts!

    Kids are stupid now days. First they cut themselves. Then they started ghost riding the whip. Then they choked themselves while jacking off. Then they started twerking. Now they light themselves on fire. When I was growing up, if we lit someone on fire, it was called a hate crime.

    What's next? Smoking dried chicken shit in a bong?

    Much like cults, it's a problem that should solve itself.

    Sadly one of the stories mentioned a "mom" (if she can even be called that) encouraged her boy to do it.

    Ghost Ride The Whip. Where some dumb ass kid would get out of a moving vehicle, climb up on the hood or roof or run along side the car and dance or some shit. YouTube it.

    If I remember it right, the kids got out of the car from the driver seat and stood on the roof while the car was moving. Look on u-tube for some videos, some are a bit tough to watch. Haven't heard of this fire stuff before, kind of glad my kids are grown up.
