It was like 39 kids who took the challenge. Actually more over 60 year olds ate tide pods than the teenage demographic.


I doubt anyone knows the exact number of people who have consumed or tried to consume these pods.

This is the element you want voting:





You showed me 2 people out of millions. LOL

Didn't you see who the older generations put as their candidates last time? Hillary and Trump. LOL

Didn't you see who the older generations put in congress for the past several decades? Pelosi, Mitch Mcconnel, harry reid, Barbara Boxer...and on and on and on.

Didn't you see who the older generations picked to run against Obama? Mitt Romney! LOL

I ask again, how can the younger generation who is not influenced by TV and Radio pundits do worse than us? They can't


Who do you think teens would have voted for? Do you think there would have been a difference in candidates? If so, how is that possible?


Imagine 10 million votes for Green Party and Libertarian or Constitution party candidates. That's just for president. Now imagine 10 million votes for independent or third party congressional candidates.


Except for in the real world kids are obsessed with fitting in, and are creatures of pure mainstream. When mainstream politics is the Two Party System, by default the majority would inherently fall into it. Now factor in the "Two" Party's will set about billion dollar annual marketing campaigns to them directly to further the effect. Now instead of thinking about kid stuff more and more they'll be doing mainstream politics all day, and their social medias will turn into partisan echo chamber like everyone elses.

And in the end, they'll be getting hardwired into this stuff at an even earlier age than before, meaning they'll be even more hopelessly hard headed little Two Party ideologues in the long term than they would have been otherwise.

There's an old saying, get em when theyre young and you've got them for life.

McDonald's knows it. Hitler knew it.



How about we just let kids be kids. And worry about school work. And what they're going to do with their lives. And having fun while they can. And not having their little groups of friends ending up divided prematurely with all this mostly pointless BS.

Obviously there is a particular demographic characteristic in that age group. It also seems obvious they know there is a preponderance of a particular view on particular topics held by that group also.

They would not be doing it if their research showed this age group would vote the other way if made this law.
Political parties arn't normally in the business of hurting themselves in the foot.

Wild in the Streets

Archetypal 1960s musician Max Frost (Christopher Jones) lends his backing to a Senate candidate who wants to give 18-year-olds the right to vote, but he takes things a step further than expected. Inspired by their hero's words, Max's fans pressure their leaders into extending the vote to citizens as young as 15. Max and his followers capitalize on their might by bringing new issues to the fore, but, drunk on power, they soon take generational warfare to terrible extremes.


Good movie...didn't work.out so well.
