People are struggling to stay standing after getting out of bed while using a TikTok filter on their phones.
TikTok users have been sharing their own experience of using the 'Wacky Mirror' filter that turns the surrounding environment into a wavy mess.
But while some scoffed at the idea that it could actually have any impact on their balance, they soon found out the hard way that it was no joke.
Sharing their own attempt at the challenge, one user wrote: "I think I got a bruise."
However, things go very, very wrong when he switches the filter on and tries to do the same thing. But instead of planting his foot calmly on the ground, he completely stacks it, crashing to the floor. Ouch.
Another user, @the.original.jade, attempts the same thing. But whereas the previous TikToker went with one foot first, she goes for both feet.
Yet it all brings about the same result, with her too stacking it on her bedroom floor.
One person, however, going by the handle @masked.comedian02, defies convention and, despite a slight stumble, manages to keep their balance and remain standing. Though I fear they are very much in the minority.
Once you've embarrassed yourself with this challenge, how about serving yourself up a big dose of existential crisis with another?
As we get older, our bodies basically start to fall apart, including our hearing, and a challenge resurfaced on social media recently that claims to show how only people under the age of 25 can hear certain sounds.
According to the theory, oldies shouldn't be able to hear what is known as the 'mosquito tone' - or a sound of 17.4kHz.
In the video, a voice says: "Only people under the age of 25 can hear this sound. Listen."
It then plays the excruciating - if you're young - sound, with Carmen appearing to be in a fair bit of discomfort while Maylinn seems none the wiser.
Could you hear it?
Now, it's not a perfect science. There will be many of you out there who are older than 25 and can hear it perfectly, while some younger people won't be able to hear a thing.
However, almost everyone under the age of 20 will be able to hear it quite clearly.
So good luck with that one.
