You've heard of self-styled "polar bears" -- folks who boldly plunge into wintery waters, often to raise money for a charitable cause? Well, take that crazy idea and add a dose of stupid, and you've got "polar baring." In this new Facebook fad, nubile young things are stripping down to the altogether (or damn close to it) and then posing for provocative photos in the snow. Frostbitten nether regions aside, we're pretty sure our planet's teens do not need yet another incentive to post inappropriate images online. (See "teen shaming", "boob tweets", "snap chat" and "planking.")
