"Forbes cites two cases reviewed in medical journals in which women accidentally swallowed condoms, developing ailments ranging from pneumonia to appendicitis."
Stop the presses! TWO people have had problems due to this "fad"! Everyone quickly reach for your pearls to clutch!

...but nothing comes even close to what some teens are doing nowadays.
Then you weren't trying hard enough.
I made homemade explosives, drove at 14 and did all kinds of other dumb s***. We're you ever on probation? No? That makes one of us.
- Surfed the hood of the car
- rode a pump jack for the full 8 seconds
- blown up a tree stump with simple home made bombs
- shot a squirrel into the air using a DIY rocket (the squirrel survived the parachute ride back down to earth)
- Stole Every street sign in our small town
Those are just the highlights. Kids do really dumb things. The lucky ones survive.
ETA: forgot my favorite...when it'd flood, we'd ride tubes in the flood waters rushing out of the creek. Sometimes you get tangled in barbed wire as you cross over fields out in the middle of nowhere. 3 exhausting hours later, we would come out near I20 close to Westbrook and call one of our parents to come get us. Always got grounded for that.
