The blackout game, also known as the fainting game, speed dreaming, or the choking game, is a game where a person causes themselves to pass out for a few seconds. Most people don't think it affects them that much, but it kills millions of brain cells. Some people hang themselves right before they choke themselves to die, just to make sure they pass out. Some people have a friend either press on the veins of their neck or have a friend hold them and push their stomach in. They do this so they pass out but stop right before they have a chance to die, but some people are too late.
Most people who do it are teenagers. They do it because they're friends do it most of the time. It's a bad idea, because people CAN die. DO NOT PLAY IT!
