It Happened In Florida

A teacher of seven former students has been arrested after it was found out she had gathered the kids and injured them during some sort of bizarre ritual.  Two of the children suffered burns and/or cuts at the hands of Danielle Harkins, a teacher that each of the seven kids had at some point had at an area community center for Asian families.

One of the boys was burned during the ritual to “rid their bodies of demons” when Harkins poured perfume on his hand and then lit it on fire.  Another had a cut on his neck from a broken bottle, which was cauterized with a key Harkins heated with a lighter.  None of the children will reveal many of the details of the event, held around a small fire at St. Petersberg Pier.  In fact, none of the teens told their parents, and it was only when one teen texted details about it to another teen (who was not there).  That teen showed the text to their parents, who then reported it to authorities.  Even now, no one really knows why the teens gathered with their former teacher, or why they stuck around long enough for her to injure any of them.

Harkins has been arrested on child abuse charges, and friend say that she has recently gone through a nasty divorce and had taken up some extreme religious beliefs.

Teens and their Vodka Soaked Tampons

Every generation comes up with something that shocks the generations before them.

Short skirts, rock music, break dancing, piercings, rap, tattoos, Prince, hairy armpits and James Dean all at some point over the decades were met with gasps and judgmental consideration from the adults of their associated timeline.

So, here’s my turn to go all wide-eye’d and hand over mouth…

Vodka soaked tampons in use by teen girls…

…and guys.

The idea of consuming booze in new and inventive ways have been around forever, but the idea of absorbing it via the muscus-lined walls of one’s vagina or rectum just seems so ridiculous.  Why?  To bypass the smell of booze on one’s breath?  There are a series of health issues that come with this practice beyond the consumption of hard liquor.  Certainly this has been something that isn’t new to 2011.  I have to assume that this has been practiced in some circles for a long time, but the media is picking up on this practice by teens and that will also lead to others trying it to.
