New Jersey Teens Won’t Stop Setting Themselves on Fire


New Jersey teens just can’t get enough of the so-called “fire challenge,” in which impressionable teens light themselves on fire. The state’s Division of Fire Safety thinks it’s gotten so bad they issued an alert about the incidents, berating the trend as an “imbecilic act [that] is supposed to elicit laughter as onlookers and internet viewers watch the reaction from the person who is on fire.” This makes those ice buckets look downright harmless.
