I wonder how closely the number of calls correlates with actual number of people that ingest these things. A 5-figure number seems very high to me. I would think people would be more careful if they have young kids. I guess it's a big country though, so maybe that's not so surprising.

Maybe these pods just look too attractive? They do kinda look like some kind of candy or teething toy. Something a baby would probably put in their mouth if they get their hands on it.


As far as moral panics go, found this:

It's a few years old now. I remember the butt-chugging panic though.

What (fake) nonsense. If teh stoopidz are actually doing this kind of shit, chalk one up for Darwin each and every time some shit-for-brains checks out.

No sympathy at all.

Just cold, icy blackness.

I suspect the vast majority of those calls are toddlers who find their way under their parent’s sinks.
