The Human Fireball Game

By: Bianca Bartz - Published: • References: lifeinthefastlane
Youth are always getting into trouble and playing bizarre games, but the latest activity popular among Canadian youth is just downright dangerous. Students are turning themselves into human flames, either by lighting their clothes on fire or using aerosol deodorant and hairsprays to ignite themselves. The goal of the game is to be the biggest living flame.

With so much to live for, why would these young people be toying with fire? They could scar themselves for life and seriously injure themselves. Hopefully the press this is getting will get teachers and parents to keep a better eye out.

Already Canada has a law that bans retailers from selling matches and lighters to anyone under age, and are required to ID customers. I always thought this was ridiculous, but maybe they're onto something. Stats for Kids Playing With Fire Trending: Older & Average
