I've heard people swallowing goldfish back in the 30s or 40s, as a sort of college game, along with flagpole sitting, and seeing how many people you can cram into a phone booth. But this looks like some sort of fetish website, it's very strange. There are some extremely disturbing fetishes out there that involve horrible animal abuse. I guess this is one more....

A fetish that could kill these people.

I went to the site (not out of entertainment, mind you, and CURSE MY CURIOSITY...) but it's not just fish they swallow, it's jewelry and more. Ridiculous, stupid, wrong, and as many before me have said, abusive. Both to the animals and themselves.

I've heard of it, and I think some people have gotten in trouble over it because they posted it on youtube like idiots.

Ugh, I just read an article about what happens to the fish after it is swallowed (if not regurgitated), and it's terrible >:( The fish attempt to breathe and end up inhaling stomach acid and are dissolved from the inside >:( >:( Worse, it takes 5 minutes for them to die... :(

It's an ezine article that pops up when you google goldfish swallowing, but I found just reading it a bit disturbing, so I'm not linking it... There are some really sick people out there... :(

....Okay.
I don't see a point in that, if they want to do something so cool, go find a way to be cool without harming others.
My guess it's a bunch of kids who don't know what they are really doing, or if they do, they don't care and find it funny.
I think the only way to fight back is to try and shut down their website (there's seriously a website? weird...), and continue informing people of the truth, finding ways to show them the truth too, not just telling.

Unfortunately, it's not just kids, it's become a full on fetish with some sick adults out there... Just like some people have an obsession with feet and such... Apparently some people get some sort of weird pleasure out of watching fish get swallowed....

This is what I think the timeline for this is: idiots swallow live fish-next day get diseases-eventually find out they now have parasites because they swallowed a live fish.

I too went to the website and was disturbed. If this wasn't a cuss free site I'd say a few of my favourite four letter words in both english and spanish about them. They'll get ich eventually I'm sure of it.

this goes with what I said earlier: the question is not will they get diseases and parasites the question is when will they especially if they are swallowing feeder goldfish, you know the ones that there is like 200 all crowded in one tank
