America's Children Choking Each Other For Pleasure. Seriously.

dont do crystal meth
There's something about this one that's even a little bit creepier than rural meth hysteria. According to a recent report from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one in twenty Oregon eighth graders participate in "choking games," whereby the youths choke each other to achieve the airless euphoria of near-asphyxiation. Yup. Makes sense when you think about it.

So, is this better than huffing glue? Yes. Is it better than just staring at video games all day? I don't know. Is it better than meth or coke? Yes. Is it better than a little pot? Probably not. What about stealing vodka from your Uncle Carl's pick-up? Fuck me, I just don't know (hi Uncle Carl! [pictured at right]).
