The three names listed above are among a long list of other monikers used interchangeably to refer to the choking game -- a "game" where youngsters intentionally cut off their oxygen supply either with a type of rope, belt or cord or even with bare hands of their friends or themselves.
While the choking game has been an issue dating back to the 1990s, other games with potentially dangerous consequences have cropped up locally as well.
"Some time ago we did have a student try the 'knock-out' game against another," Dan Knowles, chief of police for Bartow County schools, said, explaining that young people will hit each other aggressively in an attempt to cause someone to lose consciousness.
Bartow schools also have seen instances of other types of "games" that could face discipline under sexual harassment policies.
"We also had a couple incidents of 'panting' where you pull down the pants (usually sweatpants) of another," Knowles said. "We also came across the term 'scooping,' which is when a male reaches into the bra of a female. We did discipline under physical assault and sexual harassment policies."
According to the California Poison Control System as reported by the Los Angeles Times, teens also have been reportedly consuming hand sanitizer, causing them to fall under the influence of alcohol present in the solution. Instructions on how to dilute the cleaner to maximize alcohol intake are available through the Internet.
"I figure with the hand sanitizer the purpose is to consume the alcohol, which would fall under alcohol and 'under the influence' policies [if caught and disciplined at school]," Knowles said.
A common game also considered dangerous is the cinnamon challenge. According to the American Association of Poison Control Centers, the cinnamon challenge "begins with a teen being dared to swallow a spoonful of powdered or ground cinnamon without drinking water." Consequences of the challenge can include dry mouth and throat, which leads to gagging, vomiting, coughing, choking and throat irritation. Last year, centers around the nation received 51 calls regarding the cinnamon challenge. As of March 28 of this year, 139 calls have been received with 122 of those classified as intentional misuse or abuse.
"The cinnamon and choking would probably fall under disruption policies [for disciplinary measures]," Knowles said.
Locally, Northwest Georgia Public Health Information Officer Logan Boss said these types of cases would not be reported to public health.
"Teens are always looking for a high," Boss said. "Experimenting with ingestion of any type of substance that's not designed for food consumption is dangerous."
