LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Today’s teenagers have a weird way of getting drunk – they pour vodka in their eyes.

The bizarre fad is known as “eyeballing,” and youth expert Vanessa Van Petten of radicalparenting.com knows all about it.

Van Petten used to witness many of her own friends “eyeball” vodka at parties in college, claiming it got them drunk faster.

Today, teens do it more as a “party trick,” especially boys who want to prove to their peers how “hardcore” they are.

Van Petten says “eyeballing” can be done by dripping vodka into the corner of the eyes, much like eyedrops. Teens can also put the bottle directly on their eye and blink, or pour vodka from a shot glass into their bottom eyelid.

In any case, the stunt isn’t easy on the eyes and supposedly burns pretty badly, though Van Petten thinks the pain is part of the appeal.

She’s also heard of teenagers injecting vodka into their veins with needles.
