Disturbing topic:

Why are kids so fascinated with the choking game? I have been doing some more reading and research on it. I am mainly trying to find statistics, which are still lacking (and have reason to be), because the game itself is not hard to figure out. It is the door to autoerotic asphyxiation. I just can't... WHY? 4 kids in my area of died of this in under a year. I would have to imagine the actual total count is very high at this point.

ETA: Estimated 82 deaths of 11-19 years olds (some younger) from 97-2007. Probably much higher. Thanks to the mass amount of videos about it on YouTube, the popularity has sky rocketed. Estimated 1 out of 16 kids has tried it. Between choking to get high and synthetic pot, I am floored and puzzled.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
