I Made Up 17 New Challenges As Dumb As The Body-Shaming 'Paper Waist Challenge'

If you woke up this morning hoping the Internet had come up with yet another reason for you to hate your body, you're in luck.

Fresh from Chinese social networking platform Weibo comes the A4 paper waist challenge, which encourages girls to place a 8.27-inch sheet (an A4) in front of their waists to see if they're small enough to fit behind the white paper. Then, they upload the photo as proof.

This is the most ridiculous thing I've heard of since balancing a pencil under your boobs was a thing. Who cares if you can't "hide" behind a sheet of paper? The only sheets of paper I stand behind are my college diploma and my paychecks.

Instead of partaking in the A4 challenge, try standing behind one of these completely arbitrary objects instead. You'll kill fewer trees, and have no reason to feel bad about yourself.
