No, I'm not making this up. You thought the Tide pod craze was bad?

... there is just something wrong in the head with these kids.

Read about that earlier, seems the universities are trying to track the organizers down with disciplinary action in mind.

Kids may be stupid, but I think these are isolated stories, great to read, but of little importance.

UW, the biggest university campus in Washington state has a cluster among the fraternities. If it were not for the extended BLM demonstrations, this would be very suspicious after hearing about this happening in other states.

Steve,

Just another sign of the dumbassery facing our nation. Here's an example that's closer to home:

You can lead a horse to water, but you can't fix stupid.

I realize that it may be an isolated incident, but it's something to keep in mind when some of the schools/universities reopen. This age demographic is prone to risky behaviors, tends to think of themselves as 'invincible', lacks good judgement, etc.

If it's bad now, what will it be like in August or September when they're all back on campus, in the dorms, etc. ?

I agree. There is no limit to the stupidity of high school and college idiots.

I saw a headline that said this was a hoax. I don't have a link.

I wish it were a hoax. Before I posted, I checked Snopes just to be sure: [www.snopes.com]

They did insert this one line: "This story has been edited to clarify that the fire chief confirmed only that students had attended parties knowing they were infected."

... there are too many corroborating information sources in this case, all of which point to it being likely real. Even if the "betting on who gets corona first" part isn't correct, the simple fact that you would have young people going to parties when they knew they were infected is deeply disturbing ... somewhat akin to someone who is knowingly HIV positive knowingly going around having unprotected sex with people.

Why I oppose lowering the voting age.

But I am in favor of raising the age for military service.

If San Francisco city council candidates want to pander to 16 year-olds, it's on them! The barely out of middle school group won't be effecting State or National elections.

On the other hand if they could be mobilized as a block to eject Diane from her Senate seat, I might change my mind.

Gotcha. From reading that article, I'm not seeing any evidence that what's been claimed in this case is definitively wrong though. It's also possible that there's information that can't be discussed because of either patient privacy or concerns about starting a public health panic (even more than is already happening).

The articles I've posted do make reference to the parties being confirmed by a doctor ... I would tend to think that a reputable doctor wouldn't lie about such a thing. Judge for yourself: [www.tuscaloosanews.com]

"Dr. Ramesh Peramsetty, a local physician who has been actively posting on West Alabama social media groups regarding pandemic testing and screening, from the perspective of his First Care and Crimson Care clinics, said COVID party stories have been going around for weeks. He posted what he’d heard about them as far back as June 8.

“While my nursing staff was triaging patients for COVID-19 swabbing, they were told about the COVID-19 house parties and were even shown videos of the parties by college students,” Peramsetty said.

“When students are called for results, we noticed that some were very excited and happy that they were positive, while others were very upset that they were negative.”

All I can say is: d'oh! nuts smiley
