American Teens Eating A Big Bowl of Stupid: Laundry Detergent

Retro stupidBy Kim Rossi

There's no kind way to say this, so I won't attempt to hide my scorn, not at the kids but the system.  American kids who are eating Tide laundry soap packets are not well. Yes, kids will be kids. Kids do stupid things. I did stupid things. Life threatening even. I did not eat laundry soap. Period. End of story.  I had an instinct that told me, "This will kill you."

I see a lack of basic critical self-preservation skills in this new Tide Challenge. My daughters with autism have almost no self-protective skills. It's part of the their disability. Eat a Tide pod is within the realm of cognitive disability.

When I was a kid, we used to belt out "The Comet Song." I'll bet you know it yourself. Eating detergent was a joke even a 6 year old kid could understand. We also used to sing "Glory Glory Hallelujah, teacher hit me with a rulah (hey, I grew up in BAHSTUN Massachusetts so the rhyme worked perfectly) I hid behind the door with a loaded 44 and the teacher is no more." That was before school aged males were prone to mass school shootings.

The kids are not all right.  I'm sure the AAP will come out with a grave statement of concern any moment. Remember when Katie Wright wrote about their response to the cinnamon challenge a few years ago?  Perhaps if we weren't over vaccinating our kids into oblivion they'd have a lot fewer challenges.

It's not that there's anything wrong with the children. The soap looks delicious.

"New York Lawmakers Want Tide to Stop Making Its Pods Look So Tasty"

"Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas and Sen. Brad Hoylman proposed a bill Tuesday that would require Tide to individually wrap each pod, add warning labels to them, and change their colorful designs so they appeal less to children."

The way I see things, today's youth have the angst of a toxic load that is probably on average what their elders experienced 10 years later in their lifetimes and the youth also have from what I'm seeing the intellectual/cognitive experience loss or setback of probably about 4 years on average to cope with that burden.

Seems to me it's time for a societal leap out of the proverbial frog boiling pot ...

There is detergent in vaccines, isn't there? Maybe it sets off a craving...


That's a new one on me Gary. Good though.

Why did they eat detergent? Sounds like a sorority initiation.

Kim: Also: "I hit her in the bean with a rotten tangerine, and boy did she look mean." Comforting to know that the social media censors are moving quickly on this!
