11 of the Weirdest Fads Through History

If you think planking, condom snorting, the cinnamon challenge and other modern trends are a statement about the stupidity of modern man, then you need a history lesson. Amongst some of the stupidest trends in history are purposefully making teeth look terrible, arsenic medical treatments, and year-long dance marathons.

The photo above features a few young, hip guys hunkering together, which at least wasn't a dangerous past time like many of the others on this list.

Warning: Some of the language is NSFW.
