Some online "challenges" are used for good...like the Ice Bucket Challenge. Others are dangerous...like the Tide Pod Challenge. But some are just dumb entertainment like the "Florida Man Challenge," It's based on the fact that so many stupid criminal stories come out of Florida.

You might have to poke around a little. But the point is, there are so many Florida Man stories, you'll eventually find one that happened on your birthday. Then you're supposed to post it on social media with the hashtag #FloridaMan.
