    Chug-a-lugging and binge drinking not risky enough for you? How about vaporizing alcohol and inhaling it?

    Apparently this has been going on for a while, but this is the first I've heard of it. BTW, it's really, REALLY dumb.

    Ron Swanson says: "This the wrong way to consume alcohol."

    That being said, these youth fads that get played up into a "save the children!" frenzy in the media are almost always ridiculously exaggerated and fade away almost as fast as they appeared.

    They were doing this with wine on "James May's Man Lab" Christmas episode last year. You think this is a horrible fad? Then blame foodie and wine expert Oz Clarke. I think it's a wonderful fad, and recommend trying it with a good snifting brandy. Single malts are good too.

    I wish one of these 'dangerous fads' would really work in large numbers. You only tend to lose a small handful of people with each one (like planking, for instance) ...we'll never thin the herd without some real hard-hitting deadliness.

    How about "redback snorting?"

    Here's what we do: First, you try out a bunch of surefire methods of stupidity, and we'll wait and see which one kills you while looking really cool. Whichever method that is, we'll then spread the idea around to all the kids you wish to see dead. That way, you get what you wish for, with only a minimal loss of time and resources.

    Puking as normal - it just won't save you!

    "Do you like Huey Lewis and the News? Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in '83, I think they really came into their own, commercially and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor."

    You know, I've never seen American Psycho. I'm curious, but I am really not a fan of hyperviolent movies. I used to like them, but in recent years I've shied away from them. Still, I hear the movie is good.

    You could never pay me to watch it again. I wasted time and money the first go 'round on American Psycho.

    I liked the "insert alcohol tampon into vagina", and the "dip penis into alcohol" fads. Those were pretty creative. Oh boy, the youth of today...

    I'm waiting for some college whiz to figure out a way to drink tobacco.

    Blender on high, distilled water, maybe shot or some liquor. Blend, pour through strainer, serve.

    Didn't say it'd be tasty.
