With all the knowledge and medical advances we have these days...darwin still finds a way.  Let these people burn themselves and get knocked out of the gene pool.  Fire = danger and anyone with a pea sized brain knows that.

people forgot that fire can burn you..........

 

 

 

 

and then dumb ass kids are pouring too much on them self as well. 

 

they see one person do it. they think all can.

 

It seems the point of the challenge is to spray a small amount of flammable liquid like alcohol or perfume

 

 

but these kids are using gasoline and lighter fluid and in great amounts.

Does everything need to be made into a racial issue? :|

These kids probably have so low self esteem that if they get kill, they don't give a crap about it.

you feel me asking if its a color thing based on me not seeing any white kids is a racial thing? odd thought process... almost defensive like.

Lawton boy recovering from burns he suffered when doing the "Fire Challenge."

 

LAWTON, Okla._A Lawton boy says he was dared to take part in what is now being called, "The fire challenge." It's a senseless game made popular by social media. Now, he is on the long road to recovery.
