Some are positive, such as those that aim to raise awareness about an important cause; some are benign, like viral makeup trends; and some are unsafe, like the new "condom snorting challenge".

In videos, teens unwrap a sheath, snort it up one nostril and then pull it through their mouth.

Some more recent challenges include the Tide pod challenge and the Carolina reaper challenge.

Can we just go back to the ice bucket challenge or something?

However, there have not been any official statistics on how many have taken up the condom-snorting challenge. Not only do kids risk choking on the condoms, but according to Forbes, the challenge also carries the risk of allergic reactions and infection.

However, Facebook says the revamp was already planned ahead of the scandal in order to comply with new European Union rules. What we try to do is send the person at Facebook who will have the most knowledge about what Congress is trying to learn.

State education specialist Stephen Enriquez has visited schools to share this disturbing practice with parents so they can be aware of what children may be doing, KABB reported.

The Condom Challenge isn't new, but a resurgence of a past trend.

Now teens are taking on an even grosser challenge in pursuit of Internet fame - and this one is making stomachs turn, as it is as disgusting as it is unsafe. Bruce Y. Lee, an associate professor of worldwide health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, penned an article for Forbes citing examples of fairly serious injuries sustained by people who accidentally inhaled or ingested condoms during oral sex.

One woman accidentally inhaled a condom into her lungs, leading one to collapse because the condom was blocking the airway, the Post reported. "Would it really be worth all that just to get more likes and views?" YouTube has since removed that video, but a summary from The Young Turks can be viewed below.

Earlier this year, a game called the "Tide pod challenge" raised concerns as videos were circulating on social media showing teenagers biting into brightly colored liquid laundry detergent packets, or pretending to cook them in skillets, then chewing them up and spewing soap from their mouths.
