    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?

    i do not think that doing those "social media challenges" aka brain-dead actions is a good idea, but watching people (especially adults) doing those social media challenges makes me feel smart but the downside of watching these videos make me sad that i am not in heaven (but i am not suicidal so keep that in mind)

    Definitely late here, but shortly after this "craze" made it into the news, tide pods were confiscated from soldiers' barracks rooms due to the fear mongering nature of the military chain of command and their natural ability of over compensation. It was ridiculously hilarious and depressing at the same time at how little the army truly believed that we were capable of being adults and using some common sense...

    Saying context matters isn’t even just pewdiepie thing. I was watching a channel called the beat, and the person running the channel says not to take verses out of the Bible out of context, or u can make it say whatever you want it to say. Weather you’re religious or not, that statement is true for anything. If you rip things out of context, you can make just about anything say whatever you want it to say

    When I looked up this challenge it was just a bunch of people saying like "Okay I'm now going to eat this tide pod!" and then dropping it and going on a rant about why they're not going to eat it and how its a stupid idea.

    Finally some fellow smart people

    You shouldn't put them in your mouth at all because they dissolve in water.

    The Tide Pod challenge was the most stupid thing in 2018. It was a fad that faded, and news reporters STILL want to cover it just because it's interesting. Also, this video is age-restricted, which just shows how much people want to prevent this even though this video is not encouraging the ingestion of Tide pods, which isn't even that big of a problem. The only good thing that came from this challenge? The MEMES.
