If you see people doing something new and you think maybe you want to take part in it, breathe deep, count to ten, and remember that people (especially teens) make terrible decisions in groups. Nothing is more true of this than fads. Trends. What's "hip." Jncos in the 90s. Bleached tips. Popped collars. Ren fair horns. Humanity is capable of terrible things. Fortunately, they also invented the Internet, which hasn't gone the way of the Pet Rock yet, so we can use it to extract confessions from these paragons of shame and poor judgment, which is exactly what happened when /u/whatsausernamefor people on Reddit were asked "What's the stupidest trend that you followed?" Let's take a walk down repressed-memory lane.
