@Lash,
That's a slang term, you don't like it when we do that. Your link gets it right, condoms, that's not slang.

@izzythepush,
"The faggot burnt the rubber[...]" is a sentence that means two completely different things depending on what side of the Atlantic Ocean you're on.

@izzythepush,
I didn’t mind.

Lift/elevator
Boot/trunk
Flat/apartment

I know a few. Variations in our language doesn’t bother me. Can’t imagine it would bother you...

@Lash,
None of your examples are slang terms, they're the differences between American English and English. Rubber is a slang term for condom, condom isn't slang and is used both sides.

If I started talking about blobs and johnnies you might have a problem.

Anyway, in the Daffy Duck cartoon which is American, he's talking about rubbing Daffy out, not erasing him, so it sounds like you used rubber the same as us.

The new teen craze is snorting a rubber through your nostril and spitting it out of your mouth.


It's not new, and it's hardly a craze, and now I know why you were going on about it.

Quote:
"Condom snorting" - a dangerous activity that involves stuffing a condom up your nose until it comes out of your mouth - has been the subject of a number of recent viral news reports. It's a years-old trend that wasn't very popular even when it first surfaced - and now, in a bizarre twist, it's now being used as an argument against young gun-control advocates in America.

The furore started in late March when KABB, a local Fox News affiliate in San Antonio, Texas, reported on an educational project teaching teens about a range of dangers, including risky viral challenges and trends.

One example caught on tape during the workshop was "condom snorting" - a supposedly viral trend that became a focus of the TV report.

From there, the story took off, prompting headlines such as "The condom snorting challenge is an actual thing people are doing" and "Condom Snorting Challenge' Returns, Doctors Warn of Dangers".

Although snorting a condom is indeed foolish and dangerous (for the obvious reason that a condom lodged in your nose or throat might make it very difficult to breathe), many reports gave the false impression that the challenge is going viral in 2018.

The fact-checking website Snopes noted that the vast majority of condom snorting videos online were more than a year old, with most dating from 2013.

Even then, the site noted, "the phenomenon was never that widespread and gradually petered out."

But the current supposed revival of the challenge has been used to make a political point. Like the "tide pod" challenge before it, it's been used as an argument in the heated online debate around gun control in the United States.

Some gun-rights advocates argue that the kinds of stupid and dangerous stunts that sometimes catch on among teenagers discredit the arguments made by the young activists behind the #NeverAgain movement which sprung up after the mass school shooting in Parkland, Florida in February.

One social media star who started got a lot of comments on a condom challenge video that he uploaded four years ago, recently noticed that his old clip was suddenly getting a surge in traffic.

"When I saw this I thought, 'I got to find out who is doing these challenges... is someone new going viral?'" he told BBC Trending.

However, when he searched online he found no new examples of condom snorting. But the new surge in interest in his old video was being driven by gun enthusiasts.

"I had hundreds of comments about gun control," he says. "It was like 'you're the generation taking away our guns and you're doing this?' It was hilarious. I'm Canadian and not very politically engaged but people were attacking me about gun control.

"It doesn't make any sense as to why [these comments] are on my video in the first place. They're not related."

He also adds that while his initial video was an attempt to grab attention, "it's a bad challenge that nobody should do."

@izzythepush,
There are so many challenges out there that are both ridiculous and dangerous.

For instance:
Eyeballing - Where you place a bottle of alcohol (vodka, usually) directly against your eyeball. Supposedly it allows you to get a buzz faster. Result: Possible harm to the eye.
Cinnamon challenge: Eat a spoon of cinnamon. IT immediately absorbs all the moisture in the mouth. It leads to irritated airways, coughing and possible lng damage (up to and including collapsed lungs).
Planking: Just laying rigid(like a plank, hence the name). It's not inherently dangerous, but over time, this one has gone to extremes: reportedly, an Australian kid I believe died because he fell from a balcony on the seventh floor he was planking on.
Car Surfing: Well, does this need an explanation? It gets even worse when the driver does it...
Hot water challenge: Either drink boiling hot water or pour it over your body.
Eraser challenge: Vigorously rubbing an eraser over your skin while fulfilling a mundane task (such as reciting the alphabet). Results in permanent scars...
Fire challenge. This one takes the cake. It involved pouring a flammable liquid on your skin, and then setting yourself on fire...

There are others, this is just a sample. It's completely ludicrous...

The condom snorting story made rounds on Twitter. I didn’t notice any associated mentions of gun control, but who knows the origins of half the stuff that floats around social media.

@Lash,
Which doesn't change anything I posted about this 'craze' being hijacked by the gun lobby. In the post directly above yours oraloy has just posted the fascist cartoonist mentioned in the BBC article.

This whole thing has been whipped up by the gun lobby and their dupes to discredit young people talking sense about gun control.

It does change something you said.

There was no anti-gun connection for me.

No it doesn't. It merely confirms the power of the gun lobby.

Yes it does. I didn’t see it in connection with the gun lobby.

You’re dishonest.

@Lash,
Not believing your progressive horseshit doesn't make me dishonest. It means I'm not a gullible idiot, because only a gullible idiot would believe that your support for the gun lobby and your posting of this 'craze' about condom snorting are unrelated.
