We've all done stupid things in our lifetime, there's no denying that. But what the hell is wrong with our kids? I know, I'm generalizing and I shouldn't be. It's only a select group of kids that seem to be dumb enough to try these things.

According to WABI TV 5 this is called the 'outlet challenge', and was originally inspired by a TikTok video- that's just great. Teens are encouraged to plug their phone chargers halfway into the wall and then touch the exposed portion of the prongs with a penny, thus shorting it out.

If they're luck, the short out will be the worst thing that happens. If they're not lucky, they'll be electrocuted and burn the building down.

I hate that I even have to say this but, "talk to your teens about outlets". Ugh.
