    The news makes it seem like the world is spiraling out of control at a record pace. But can you actually trust the information you're getting? The most recent example of news sensationalism revolves around Tide Pods. But are they actually killing our youth like so many news headlines would have you believe?

    You still have to be pretty dumb to eat a tide pod. If you willingly eat one, I say good riddance. We didn't need an idiot like you on this earth anyway.

    Me: *shows it to my best friend*
    BFF: How stupid. Popping tide pods like they're breath mints after eating onions...
    Me: What are you drinking?
    BFF: It's called Bleach. Want some?
    Me: that's just as stupid as Tide Pods!
    BFF: you're supposed to soak them in Bleach or a cup of Soap before you eat them! Man, some people are so stupid. *Puts Tide Pods in Bleach and takes a sip* Hmmmm... Needs more Battery acid... *pours battery acid in cup*
    Me: *Puts away all the batteries* There. She can't get them now. She may be imaginary, but I don't want her dying an imaginary death. She shall never get them. BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!

    Okay so my I love your work but Chubby Bunny challenges are for 2 year olds who have mini marshmallows not sure somebody who probably already has a child and is a theorist not even just as there is a famous theorists on the internet I'm just as disappointed that I subscribed to somebody who is weaker than I am and I'm not trying to make you feel hurt or trying to be rude it's just that.

    You could be forgiven for taking a guess, considering most people don't see tide pods as a direct threat. I would be more surprised to find out this isn't a trend, so I know what my guess would be. The problem is less that the media made you believe this, and more that the media made you think about this in the first place.

    So firstly, it's interesting that this video is "Age-restricted (based on Community Guidelines)" when basically the entire first minute is devoted to informing people how awful eating a Tide Pod would be.
    Second, I caught sight of Breitbart amongst the journalism major's vision board that is 03:00 in the video, and I find it kinda sad (but not kinda funny - shout out to anyone who gets the reference) that Breitbart is now considered part of the "Mainstream Media" - and the worst part is, I'm not even sure I can argue with that assessment.

    What if the videos telling you not to eat tide pods told you why, I’m pretty sure there was a study or something that a child will have a lower Chance of doing something if they are told why not to do it. Also the explanation you gave of what happens when you eat a tide will probably lower the chance of a teen/child eating a tide pod
