The trick is to not inhale.

Not only do you have to be an idiot for doing this, but then encouraging others as well? To the easily influenced out there, take this advice before succumbing to this stupidity and landing yourself in the hospital.

Cinnamon challenge you say? Only a fuckwit would do such a thing. I'm not sure what to say of a person that needs others to tell him/her not to try and swallow a spoonful of such a highly potent spice.

This. Get it in your mouth and make sure it's moist enough to swallow before you try to breathe. Done this once as a kid (still too young to realise what could have happened if it went wrong) and it went fairly well, but yeah, still coughed a bit and it was a soup spoon, not a damn shot glass =P

That being said I don't know why any adult would try this and risk suffocating. As a former asthma sufferer, I assure you that not being able to breathe is not a great feeling.

I don't mean that kind of social competence. I mean being able to deduce what people's intentions are with their words. Thegerg will take pretty much everything you say literally. So in that regard he is almost entirely socially incompetent. It's his troll thing.

I'd think it's not truly social incompetence if you do it on purpose though but I get your point. My point about the insults though, remains and I can see by your face that you're the kind of guy who listens to moderators ;)

True. But there is the off chance that he's not doing it on purpose. He could have asbergers for example. He is in any case a device used to introduce a stream of water into the body.

Yes sir! I'm a very obedient gamespotter.

Eating the cinnamon wasn't the most idiotic thing about that video. The fact that you filmed it vertically is the most idiotic thing about that video. Why can't people figure out the 16:9 aspect ratio standard for filming and viewing content?

just so you all know I took proper precautions before doing this, and am fine after doing so. It was just a fun thing to do and I didn't even swallow the cinnamon just put it in my mouth and spit it out. I also didn't film it and agree the camera work sucks. The important lesson for today is think before you act but don't let over percusses people stop you from living and doing what you want. Lastly I do need a haircut thanks for the tip =) @vfibsux@GazaAli@thegerg@ferrari2001 thanks for reading
