The game’s been going on for a while now (I can remember people doing it in my school) but it’s now a major concern after an 11-year-old boy in south Carolina died last week playing it in his bedroom.
Other names for the game include “space monkey,” “cloud nine” and “five minutes in heaven.”

Can’t wait to have kids and worry about them doing dumb shit like this.
