Has The Hot Coil Challenge Replaced the Tide Pod Challenge?

I am having a hard time watching kids do stupid things that can hurt and possibly kill them. I couldn't wrap my head around the Tide Pod Challenge. How stupid can you be to put dangerous chemicals in your mouth?

The newest craze is called the "The Hot Coil Challenge".  People turn on an electric stove top until it's burning hot, and then press a body part on to the burning coil until they can no longer stand it.

What makes people do such dangerous things? We can add this to this year's Darwin Awards.  PLEASE, for the love of God, DON NOT TRY THIS!!
