Florida Teen Poses As OB-GYN For Like, A Month, Fools Almost Everyone

OH DEAR
Yikes

Today, in things that worry me greatly: A teen in West Palm Beach, FL, has been apprehended by police after “playing doctor” inside a real, live hospital. Dressed in a white doctor’s coat and with a stethoscope around his neck, the teen wandered the halls of St. Mary’s Medical Center, playing doctor and thankfully, not actually treating any patients. According to a statement from the hospital, “The individual never had any contact with the hospital patients and did not gain access to any patient care areas of the hospital at any time.”   The teen’s mother scooped up her own Doogie Howser, relaying to authorities that he is actually mentally ill and has been off his meds, which makes this sad rather than creepy. I am thankful that the authorities apprehended the teen, and hopeful that he gets help. [Fox 13 Now]

Selfies strike again.

Breanna Mitchell, 18, of Roanake, Alabama, graduated from high school this year. In June, she celebrated this milestone by traveling to Europe with her grandmother and visiting Poland. Like many teens, Breanna documented her trip on social media. Sounds like a great story so far, right? The ugh moment is that Breanna snapped a smiling selfie at Auschwitz, posing in front of nondescript buildings with the caption “Selfie in the Auschwitz Concentration Camp” and a grinning emoticon.

An autopsy has found that an Ohio teenager who mysteriously collapsed a few weeks ago died of a caffeine overdose. Logan Stiner, an 18-year-old Prom King who was set to graduate a few days later, was found lying on the floor of his family’s home on May 27. His brother found him (the stuff of nightmares!) and didn’t know how long he’d been unconscious. How scary is that!?

Initially, Logan’s death was to believed to be from natural causes. His friends said he didn’t do drugs and had no medical conditions. But that same day, Logan’s mother found bags of caffeine powder in their house. Keep reading »

I want to think 19-year-old Austin Dennison, a church-going Eagle Scout who plays football, baseball, and basketball and performs in the school band, is a little goody-two-shoes. But I just can’t, because Austin is adorable. He called up his great-grandma “DD” — Delores Dennison — and asked her to be his prom date. Delores is 89 years old, a widower and suffers from heart trouble. She never attended her prom back in the 1930s, because she didn’t have enough money. So her great-grandson in Rockford, Ohio, called her up and invited her to be his senior prom date at Parkway High School. Keep reading »

Teens Discover The Real Danger Of Selfies: Lice

What’s the true danger of teen selfie-snapping? Not that they’ll be embarrassed of their online footprint later in life. Not that they might take a risqué picture that falls in the wrong hands. The more immediate consequence of taking regular selfies is an increased change of getting lice. Yes, lice.  Keep reading »

Holiday Nightmare: A Mob Of Crazed Teens Storm A Shopping Mall

Mall Madness, For Realz
Holiday Shopping Nightmare: Watch What Happened When A Mob Of Crazed Teens Stormed A Shopping Mall
This. Is. Terrifying.

I don’t know what your idea of a holiday nightmare is — maybe, wrestling your way through a Black Friday crowd at WalMart? — but mine is a mob of feral teenagers storming a mall. Kings Plaza Shopping Center in Brooklyn was forced to close its doors on Thursday when 400 teenagers showed up to put the mall “on tilt” (slang for looting the shopping center). The mall raid was allegedly all planned on social media. If the image of 400 teens beating up security guards and stealing items like candy and balloons isn’t enough to give you nightmares, the game of “Knockout,” possibly involving a gun, that broke out on the upper level will. There’s definitely a horror movie plot in here. [NY Post]
