11 Dumb Things People Have Done in the Name of Internet Challenges

8. The Fire Spray (AKA Flamethrower) Challenge

Kids of the world: why? Why do you continue to prove to adults that you can’t be trusted?? Put the lighter away, go put your mom’s hairspray back in her bathroom, and pick up a damn book, ya heathens!


9. The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge

Before Kylie Jenner admitted to having lip fillers, she claimed her plump mouth was nature’s blessing (c’mon, Kylie, we all knew you were full of it). And plenty of gullible kids f*ed up their faces in the quest to emulate her and get an oh-so-perfect pair of lips themselves.

While this may have seemed like a good quick fix – the poor man’s solution to wanting fuller lips – little did folks know just how much the challenge would cost them in the end.
