The Tide Pod Challenge and Gun Rights

Most liberals seem to believe that firearms should be illegal because an irresponsible minority misuses them. Looks like detergent needs to be illegal too:

In this latest social media fad, teenagers are putting detergent pods in their mouths in what’s being called the “Tide Pod Challenge.”

Ingredients in the pods include ethanol, hydrogen peroxide and polymers – a highly-toxic mix of detergent meant to wipe out dirt and grime. Manufacturers have been concerned about toddlers mistakenly ingesting them, but now teens are popping them on purpose and posting videos of the results online, reports CBS News correspondent Anna Werner.

The consequences are not pleasant:

The laundry detergent packets pose two potential problems, [Alfred Aleguas of the Florida Poison Information Center in Tampa] said. Children and teens can aspirate on the liquid by inhaling it into their lungs, or they can become ill by ingesting it — experiencing a change in blood pressure and heart rate, losing consciousness or having seizures.

But on the positive side, posting a video of you poisoning yourself might bring lots of visitors to your Facebook page.

The lesson: a world rid of everything that could be dangerous in the hands of fools or sociopaths would resemble a maximum security psychiatric ward.

    Maybe we need Drano Pods because the Tide/detergent pods just aren’t cleaning out the gene pool fast enough.

    Left/libtards want the whole world to be a “safe space” they control.

  3. Mack says:

    This would not happen if the parents were raising their teens, if the teens were doing their chores, if the parents controlled the screens, or if the teens were working part-time jobs.
    But go ahead and blame someone else.

    Welcome to Nerf World boys and girls! A place where you can be as stupid as you want with no consequences.

    Charles Darwin says if you aren’t bright enough to not eat laundry pods, you aren’t bright enough to survive.

  6. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Clearly it is the fault of the pod manufacturers.

    So long as you can engage in sex with anyone, anywhere, you are free.

    Providing you don’t find the chains too chafing….

    Keep on being idiotic, kids… we’ll have Playskool World forced upon us by Leftists in no time! (Ask people who grew up in the Soviet Union how much that was… )

    Being totally into capitalism, I see this as a great way to make a lot of money.

    I’m going to have Mrs. Valiant start baking cookies that look like Tide Pods and market them on the web, Facebook Instagram – all the social media.

    I’ll make a killing!

    P.S. Don’t tell Cuomo that Nerf guns can have evil “high-capacity” magazines now or they’ll take away even that in New York and other blue states.

  11. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Of course the government will eventually shut you down for making something that resembles a dangerous object. You can’t, for example, make a drink mix and label it “rat poison.”

  12. SolidusRaccoon says:

    We need to regulate BIG DETERGENT!!!!! They make their chemicals look like candy to POISON CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REGULATE, RESTRICT< AND CONTROL!!!!!!!!!!! Do not even suggest it is the parents duty to put thees pods in child proof places. There needs to big government approved and mandatory lock boxes for them, and waiting lists!!!!!!!!!!

  13. The Uhlan says:

    My wife has stockpiled hundreds, maybe thousands of those so-called “pods”. There’s like an arsenal of “cleaning things” she stores in, I think it’s called a “kitchen”.

  14. Frank says:

    We bought a big container of Tide Pods before the government passes a law limiting packages to 10. Who knows California and New York may have already quietly banned larger containers. I hope they have the decency to grandfather older, larger packages. I’d hate to think the police will go around demanding they be surrendered.

  15. FireWatch says:

    I hope she doesn’t have any of those sharp thingies. They are dangerous!

  16. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Obviously she has absolutely no regard for the constitution, nor the limits it places upon the federal government.

  17. Mr. Freemarket says:

    Ten pods??? Ten pods. That is so dangerous. No one needs more than five pods at a time.

    Outlaw high capacity containers!!!

  18. Mr. Freemarket says:

    BTW….that is one scary woman. Perhaps she is a witch.

    What do you expect from a bunch of millennial progressives? don’t cha’ know? eating laundry soap is “progressive”….. Only evil bigoted conservatives would be fearful of eating soap, and we all know the most “progressive” way to prove you’re not fearful of something to to engage it and embrace it. Just like they prove they’re not fearful of Islam by embracing and tolerating terrorism and Sharia, just like they prove they’re not “racist” by tolerating and embracing ghetto culture and anti-white extremism, just like they prove they’re not homophobic by being homosexual, just like they prove they’re not transphobic by living as the opposite sex….

    So yea, eating soap is progressive..

    This is what “do what feels good” or “what impresses” has gotten us…. A bunch of dummies eating soap..

    “Who needs ten pods to kill a DEEYAH?!”

  22. ICEvictim says:

    that’s a woman?? who knew

  23. Mr. Freemarket says:

    I’m sure she won’t float. Let’s find out.

  24. Professor Hale says:

    I bought some of these a few days ago. 3/4 pf the surface of the packaging is devoted to warnings against eating them. No room left for a brief description of what the product does.
