Maybe people have too much time on their hands... or air pollution has epigenetic effects beyond pulmonary damage. As in brain damage.

This recipe is potentially explosive, therefore a dangerous burn potential, which the article is very careful to explain. Definitely a DIY Darwin award kind of thing.

... not sure why the guy in Texas 'invented' this.

At the mostly harmless end of the inanity spectrum, how about bananas as a very slow motion Instagram substitute? Leave a message on a banana. Lightly incise a short message with a pointy stylus or knife on a shiny new banana. When the banana ripens the message appears. If your intended "victim" eats the banana too soon this effort fails. Too late, ditto. Like when you make banana bread out of very overdue bananas.

Some sites call them 'haunted bananas'.
Example: https://www.pinterest.com/hicks1803/banana-messages/

Harmless, mostly, unless you decide to inscribe fruit, un-purchased, at the store or at the vendor's cart. Or imagine that a very wrong person gets the banana. As in 'We know what you did' inscribed by anonymous.

If you know another kind of offbeat foolishness you want to add to the list, please do.
