raise your hand if your blood stream is clear because all of us have some amount of mercury, aluminium or arsenic inside body

Karla Crous says:

I was waiting for Mad as a Hatter 😀

Redcatrobe says:

Humans have found amazing ways to poison themselves.

Aragorn Stellar says:

How about slick leather soled shoes with that metal v-cleat in the heel that would make taking a step like walking on ice.

I R Stat1c says:

Skinny jeans on men significantly reduce sperm count and drastically reduce testosterone, so not only are they stupid looking but they literally castrate wearers.

ALaurel Jordan says:

Why it's named "dye".

Roald Page says:

As someone with sensitive lungs, pretty much any new piece of clothing could kill me or make me very ill. Most new cloths come with a chemical factory odor, and the ones that don't smell like factory chemicals usually smell like over potent laundry soap perfume, both of which are harmful to our respiratory systems. Being hyper-sensitive to these chemicals sort of makes me like a coal mine canary, i get sick faster than others from exposure to airborne chemicals, so even though I have less exposure time overall, the damage that my body expresses instantly can be a warning of the dangers present for everyone in longer exposures.
As someone who's throat puffs up like a baseball when exposed to manufacturing chemicals or most laundry soaps I can legitimately say that "You are wrong Sci-Show". Modern fashion may not be as poisonous on a one to one basis with some of the historic fashion trends, but per-capita for the number of people participating in the chemical exposed sector of the current fashion industry makes modern fashion far more toxic than any previous era.

Tsundere Child says:

The og pail princesses.

The Neighbour’s dog says:

They say modern internet trends are stupid

Keri Corley says:

Injecting botalism into foreheads and polymers into lips…is that safe?!?

Mega Salad says:

I like this guy. It seems weird but I learn a lot from him

Tigra Cat says:

How are hoomans still ALIVE

Konjo Akberet says:

I wonder if that arsenic color was the poison they put in Queen Elizabeth’s dress in the failed assassin attempt that killed a lady in waiting.

Andrew ? says:

White skin is more beautiful that black, keep an eye out for a study on the black community where they choose white is more desirable. It’s going to cause a media frenzy, the group involved is still debating on releasing. Look for the truth!

sailingsolar says:

Fashion choices wont kill burn or poison you but they can make you look like a moron, like gotee's will.

First Name Last Name says:

"It turns out there are some things you don't wanna put on or in your body, even if everyone else is doing it"

2018: Hahahaha TIDEPODS.

This is the idiotic world we live in

LO Angel says:

Deadly beauty

Daniëlle Glasbergen-Benning says:

Tapeworm diet to loose weight

Marcy Carson says:

You forgot to mention, Today, Criminals who wear their pants half way down their butts… try to run from the police…but always, their pants fall down, which makes the criminal unable to run. Good deal, keep showing your butt and we'll keep laughing and throwing criminals in jail.

1acroyear1 says:

I would love it if skinny jeans just started exploding.
