We humans seem to be absolutely fascinated and intrigued by the very things that utterly repulse us.
Take pimple-porn for example. Hundreds of thousands of people tune into YouTube everyday to watch a sebaceous cyst get popped by a hot needle, or a large sack of pus being squeezed to such a vicious extent that it literally explodes, shooting out a hot stream of yellow pus and blood.
Essentially we shouldn’t enjoy such videos, yet we revel in our own discomfort.
But what are the things you definitely (and I mean definitely) should not search for on Google Images?
Well the helpful guys over at Reddit have been discussing the matter and have came up with a lot of weird and wonderful things.
Here’s our top five:
Degloving is the name given to a serious injury which entirely strips the skin away from the underlying tissue beneath. It is aptly named degloving, because the injury is similar to removing a glove. Fuck.
Although it may not be too clear by the above pictures, mouth larvae in my opinion is the most stomach churning topic on this list. Mouth larvae, also known as, oral myiasis, is a parasitic infestation of the body by maggots which live and grow inside the body (or in this case, the mouth) while feeding on tissue.
If you were brave (sick) enough to open the above image you would’ve bore witness to the fact that a calculus bridge is absolutely nothing to do with maths. In fact, a calculus bridge is a form of incredibly hardened plaque on the teeth.
If you were unfortunate enough to look at the above selection of images, you would’ve found a lot of pictures of disease ridden genitals. That’s because fournier is a gangrene which infects the perineum (pubic area), often resulting in death.
Just the very thought of a botfly makes my skin crawl. Somewhat similar to oral myisasis, botfly’s are a family of flies which drop their eggs onto a living ‘host’. The eggs then burrow under the skin of the ‘host’, whether human or animal, while living and growing inside of them before being extracted or fleeing.
If you really want to disgust yourself then head straight over to YouTube and search for botfly – you won’t be disappointed but you might well be violently ill and scarred for days.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you…
