The new trend: MILKING ... stupid people

Milking - The new trend. The act of throwing milk over your head or over someone else's head

I sometime I have to believe this world is going backwards. First it was planking, the trend that took someone's life after he attempted it on the top of a building. Same trend that got someone else arrested after attempting it on a police car. The new trend is called milking. To me it is dumb and ridiculous. It is at the zenith of ridiculousness. It seems to me it involves pouring milk over your head. Pictures and videos are starting to flood the internet of these ostensibly senseless people performing such acts. What is your idea on the whole take? See a video of someone going into a supermarket, buy the milk then just waste it on his head top. It is a big waste of resources, money and the farmer's time.

I think that if they are doing that in public then it qualifies as littering. They should be arrested and the penalty should be a donation to a food bank locally or to feed starving children and adults elsewhere. We are so obnoxious in our conspicuous consumption! If those starving people of the world had TVs they would be appalled and probably cry at the waste they see, especially when their bellies have gone past the point of hunger. I know what it is to be hungry, how it hurts, and eventually you feel nothing, not even hunger pangs, nothing but lethargy and hopelessness. Thank God it was only for a week until I got paid but that was enough to make me never waste another morsel of food. As for planking, it's stupid but harmless unless they disrupt a public place or put themselves in danger. We're stupid when we are young, searching to be different. I forget what the fad was when I was a teen in the early 70's but I'm sure it was something just as dumb. As long as it's harmless, it's a rite of passage but "milking" borders on criminal. It's a slap in the face to anyone who doesn't have enough to eat and to the millions who starve. It just shows how willfully ignorant our youth are.

Yes i believe a fee should be required for them to pay, though more than the price of the item. And this should be used to go towards donation. I know what it means to not eat for a day, and I couldn't manage that either. For you to not eat for a week, I definitely wouldn't be able to manage that. It really hurts me to see that they are wasting these stuff. Planking became dangerous after the craze wasnt just to plank on a mediocre place, it was to challenge their selves and plank on extraordinary unbelievable place. That is why thay australian 20 year old lost his life attempting to plank on the railing of the seventh floor on an apartment.

i hate it when someone wastes something. Arggh! i think Planking is better than that trend, at least the only they might waste is their life when they break bones or fall from top of the building.

I see what you are saying. Planking you only waste something that affects you mainly. But wasting resources impact the whole world. I hope these people come to their senses soon.

Foolish act created by a foolish mind for i could not see even just a speck of logic and sanity on this. Have they come across pictures of children who are almost skin and bones due to malnutrition?

I guess they haven't or too irresponsible to care. These are university students, adults in fact. If they had the capabilities to actually reach into a university, they should have the ability to reason and realize that this is wrong. This is totally wrong to be classified as a trend.

I wonder if this is part of the millions of tonnes of wasted food the world accumulates each year? I'm sure the homeless would be quite miffed if some moron did that pouring of the milk thing in front of them. Pointless and stupid..at least the planking was free.
@Renhard (3480)

It is going to become part of the wasted food indeed. The homeless would kill to see such an idiot behaving idiotic. Planking was indeed free but it took a life. And a life is priceless so then it is there to question again, was planking really free?

We have a festival in which the statues of god are washed with milk, in fact in some temples it is done everyday. My consolation is..I raised this issue ages ago..so dont think you are the genius who spotted this .. Somethings have to change...we cant be wasting food and then spreading hands in front of others ...denying them their food to keep up the traditions. That is not fair!!!
@Renhard (3480)

One whole big statue washed with milk? That is unbelievable. But I always said I would never judge a tradition, because some people can't accept an opinion. But I agree with you that it is really unfair to general waste food then deny food to people who need it.

If we can leave the tradition behind for the sake of earnings, why shouldnt we leave such inconsequential traditions behind?
@Renhard (3480)

I understand what you are saying. But some people are so strong on their traditions that they never want to part from them. They believe it always remind them of their past. I know if I was in that position I would leave a tradition for the sake of money, especially the tradition doesn't make any logical sense to improve life in some way.

Oh, it got big already, I wasn't expecting it to get viral when I saw it on YouTube last November. I didn't think it would be such a thing because milk is so freaking expensive and there is no point in pouring milk over your head in public places. It's expensive and useless and they'd probably be all sticky after, just making me think about being sour and sticky all over makes me feel vomity.. I don't even find it funny. Milk is not like other resources, it annoys me seeing milk wasted like that when I see hungry people everyday.

Well planking was banned over here in our country at one point in time. It was against the law to do any form of planking in public. Maybe milking will be banned even before it starts. XD I don't tink the people around here would invest that much money just for attention. We are a poor country. But I'm not sure yet. XD

Well maybe just the few with a little more income will do such acts, but if the country on a whole is poor then I believe too many people will shun their acts and it might die down pretty easily.

Oh dear - you miserable set of buggers. You see this, but you don't really see it. This is now the visual and upload age. Milk is white and it shows up really well if poured over your head. It is for maximum visual effect - Makes sense if one thinks about it. Price of milk? - it is £2 for 6 pints - BARGAIN!!

My take on this millingthing is that is senseless, stupid and down right wasteful. It reminds of the 'got milk' commercial taking to extreme. Milk isn't unexpensive now days either. Young people today are bored and unimaginative. When I was young we took what we had around us and used our imaginations to entertain ourselves. I guess, in a way, the young of the today are doing the same thing just in a senseless and idiotic manner.

I am unaware of the got milk commercial taken to the extreme. I am intrigue to find out what that really is. I don't have a problem in trying to entertain yourself, my only problem like you said is when you behave senseless to achieve such things. Especially if this senseless thing can impact on the whole world. We do not have unlimited resources, it might run out one day.

This is so wasteful. Come on, buying milk just to pour it over your head instead of consuming it? Perhaps people don't realize how many people in the world go hungry every day. If they're going to waste their money buying milk and pouring it over themselves, why don't they donate the same amount to homeless people or people who don't have money to buy food. Let's start a new trend where people donate money to the homeless and the hungry. The world will then be a better place.

Everybody is saying the same thing. Just donate the money instead of wasting it. You know I said that earlier somewhere to a previous responder, just start a new trend to donate. I am sure if a homeless guy should see anyone doing that, he might just go over to him and slap him right across his face to have sense. Even homeless people have more sense than these big university students with no conscience.

Ironically the people who are doing this are the university students where they're supposedly clever because they're highly educated and all. Seems like all that education is wasted on these "smart" but senseless people.

NOOOOOOOOO!!!! Who thought of this? What absent minded fool created this? Somebody could use that milk for cooking or their family. As a milkaholic, seeing that picture was a little sad for me, but at the same time, I'm trying to hold back from getting angry because I display Hulk like behavior whenever I see things like that and get ticked off. I hated seeing people taking on the gallon challenge knowing they could not handle drinking an entire gallon of milk (BTW, I can do this, and not get sick). But seeing someone dump milk on themselves just made me MAD!!! (breaks table in anger)

Okay, I've definitely heard of the trend of planking and I have to admit that there were times that I thought that it was something that was quite clever. However with this trend of milking, I simply think that people have to have more money than they know what to do with because this would be something that would get quite expensive very quickly. Besides that, who really wants to walk around in their life smelling like rotten milk?
@Renhard (3480)

That is the reason I believe this trend is growing. They choose something that they believe people would be scared to do. Then people all around the world show that they are not that scared to do such actions. I know i wouldn't be tempted to do such things. It is down right stupid for me.

I can't understand why people do such senseless things in their lives.. the milk they are pouring in their heads is just wasted .. why just donate it or rather donate the money in the charity.. there are lots of people who is most needy., we dont have to make things like this just to be cool.. you are right it is a ridiculous thing..

Everybody wants to stand out presently that they don't even see the negative effects of some of their actions. Planking killed one person, milking is just wasting resources. These people need to be punished in such a way to see that, they are behaving stupid.

Gosh these people invent the dumbest things. They have nothing else to do so they make even worse things and this is horrible because it is wating milk and that is an important resource. These people dont know how hard other work to make and buy the milk. They should just get a life or a job and i dont know....play games and be normal or something lol

These are usually just big university students bring a bad reputation to their school. I feel it for the farmers who spend so much labour preparing such food for it to be purposefully spilled on the floor. This massively insane, and i hope this trend goes no where. Jail time would really teach them some senses.

...is it a glass of milk or a milk jug? if it's a glass of milk, I'd like the Oreos please. Kidding aside, I think it is also ridiculous, disrespectful and outright wasting of food. I mean, that milk could have given a child or anyone relief and it's just gonna be spilled on someone's head. Does anybody care bout the price of milk and how much it cost nowadays? I want to buy a gallon and cannot because I have to think of my budget. And it's just being spilled Talk about waste of food - and it's near perfect food at that. I could understand if it water but does it have to be milk? I think the cow will be rightfully mad and outraged if they understand how their milk is being wasted. Imagine, they have to always near breeding cycle as far as I know just to get milk. If it were a female, it would be frustrating.

As i said as time progresses the new generation are continuing to do some more ridiculous things. It is really quite unbelievable. Why couldn't the trend be donate the milk if you had it to waste. This world don't see that some people here are really suffering. Others have life great, and others don't know what an ounce of that good life feels life. It disgusts me to see people actually following this trend.
• Canada

That definitely sounds like a waste to me! When I think of all the starving people in the world, I think wasting food like that for entertainment should actually be illegal! Maybe for everytime someone gets caught doing that, they should pay the same amount of money they paid for the food they wasted, to a charity that helps feed the poor. They could even pay enough to feed an entire poor family.
@Renhard (3480)

For them to only pay the price of the food they have wasted will never teach them a lesson. People with money would still continue doing it because a fee less than $10 wont scare them. But put a $100 fine on stuff like that, and I bet those idiots will start to think. I only wish they aren't rich idiots. Because rich idiots will never learn a lesson.

Really? I haven't seen this yet, and I hope it won't go viral like that planking thing. Lots of people have to go without milk. If they will just waste it like that, maybe they should think twice and just donate it or give to someone who needs it more than they do.
@Renhard (3480)
• Jamaica

I am saying the exact same thing, best they just donate it or something. As for it going viral, it already is. But I have realized more people see how ridiculous it is compared to previous trends. But still that doesn't stop it from spreading.
