We all know that antiquated phrase "kids these days"--right? Here's an update on what the kids these days are up to, allegedly!

In a recent national news report from the University of Massachusetts Amherst--a viral TikTok party trend has been a real problem on campus. Students are drinking from 'borgs'--otherise known as 'Blackout Rage Gallons' and they contain a mixture of water, hard alcohol and electrolyte supplements.

We did some digging through TikTok and found plenty of 'Borg' videos--one guy even shows you how to make them.

Have you ever heard of this party trend?

Would you ever try something like this? It might be dangerous!

In a significantly less dangerous fashion, another drink, labeled 'dirty', has taken Idaho TikTok by storm--check this one out: 

The 'Dirty' TikTok Trend Taking Idaho By Storm

Why is the internet blaming Mormons in Utah and Idaho for this popular TikTok trend? Well, there's a lot of talk about here and it really goes back to the rules around caffeine. If you aren't familiar, for years, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints banned the consumption of caffeine. As a condition of church membership, nearly all addictive substances are prohibited and in Utah and Idaho where the Mormon faith is in the majority, it's just a well-known fact.

Now, in Idaho and in Utah, a "Dirty" trend has been put on display for all to see via TikTok and it doesn't matter where these people live or what they do or do not believe in...it's catching on because allegedly, it's TASTY!

Have you ever had a drink of 'Dirty Soda'? What a concept. Here's a look at a Boise TikTok with well over 1 million views!
