The Outlet Challenge
Remember when you were a kid and your mother told you not to stick a fork in a light socket? Well, it seems some teenagers didn’t listen, because the “outlet challenge” has become a trend. The idea is to plug in chargers and drop a coin between the gap to see what happens. While it might sound cool, coins are metal, and good conductors of electricity, and in uncontrolled environment, it can easily start a fire. At best, the charger gets fried and stops working, and the breaker is tripped, leaving that part of the house without power. Thankfully, there have been no recorded deaths from this challenge, but that doesn’t mean it’s safe. So don’t be tempted to try it, it’s not worth the risk.
