11 Pieces of Disturbing Info You Probably Don’t Need To Know (But Now You Do)

They say ignorance is bliss, and in this scenario, I think they may be right. It’s important not to stay blind to the harsh realities of the world, but HOLY SHIT there are some pieces of knowledge that you’re probably better off having not learned in your lifetime. But, TOO LATE SUCKERS, guess you have to live with these unsettling tidbits of information FOREVER!

CardboardPizzas gives us a real graphic image:

“Pugs are so messed up that their eyes sometimes pop out, and there’s a special type of spoon to put them back in.”

PandaDerZwote informs us that we can turn into living dolls:

“There is a disease that makes your body repair muscles cells with bone cells, basically turning you stiffer and stiffer until you actually can’t move anymore and just die.
There is no treatment and it’s not that fast acting, so you just know that you are basically turning to bones and can’t stop it.”

PeekabooPike reminds you your parent’s also have a sex life.

“Found out my parents have a butt plug
My friend said “but which one uses it?”

BuffManthigh ruins koalas:

“That basically the entire population of Koala’s has Chlamydia and they are basically fucking themselves into extinction.”

Additional info, courtesy of JoyFerret:
“Koalas are fucking horrible animals. They have one of the smallest brain to body ratios of any mammal, additionally – their brains are smooth. A brain is folded to increase the surface area for neurons. If you present a koala with leaves plucked from a branch, laid on a flat surface, the koala will not recognise it as food. They are too thick to adapt their feeding behaviour to cope with change. In a room full of potential food, they can literally starve to death. This is not the token of an animal that is winning at life. Speaking of stupidity and food, one of the likely reasons for their primitive brains is the fact that additionally to being poisonous, eucalyptus leaves (the only thing they eat) have almost no nutritional value. They can’t afford the extra energy to think, they sleep more than 80% of their fucking lives. When they are awake all they do is eat, shit and occasionally scream like fucking satan. Because eucalyptus leaves hold such little nutritional value, koalas have to ferment the leaves in their guts for days on end. Unlike their brains, they have the largest hind gut to body ratio of any mammal. Many herbivorous mammals have adaptations to cope with harsh plant life taking its toll on their teeth, rodents for instance have teeth that never stop growing, some animals only have teeth on their lower jaw, grinding plant matter on bony plates in the tops of their mouths, others have enlarged molars that distribute the wear and break down plant matter more efficiently… Koalas are no exception, when their teeth erode down to nothing, they resolve the situation by starving to death, because they’re fucking terrible animals. Being mammals, koalas raise their joeys on milk (admittedly, one of the lowest milk yields to body ratio… There’s a trend here). When the young joey needs to transition from rich, nourishing substances like milk, to eucalyptus (a plant that seems to be making it abundantly clear that it doesn’t want to be eaten), it finds it does not have the necessary gut flora to digest the leaves. To remedy this, the young joey begins nuzzling its mother’s anus until she leaks a little diarrhoea (actually fecal pap, slightly less digested), which he then proceeds to slurp on. This partially digested plant matter gives him just what he needs to start developing his digestive system. Of course, he may not even have needed to bother nuzzling his mother. She may have been suffering from incontinence. Why? Because koalas are riddled with chlamydia. In some areas the infection rate is 80% or higher. This statistic isn’t helped by the fact that one of the few other activities koalas will spend their precious energy on is rape. Despite being seasonal breeders, males seem to either not know or care, and will simply overpower a female regardless of whether she is ovulating. If she fights back, he may drag them both out of the tree, which brings us full circle back to the brain: Koalas have a higher than average quantity of cerebrospinal fluid in their brains. This is to protect their brains from injury… should they fall from a tree. An animal so thick it has its own little built in special ed helmet. I fucking hate them.”

SwissGamerGuy gets dark:

“Knowing that there is an Internet site that has black box recordings of air pilots and seconds before their death.”


omfghewontfkndie makes us squirm:

“I’ll just post it instead of link it, since the original author of the post removed it.

The patient is probably not here, so I’ll answer for them. I was a medical student scrubbed into theatre, watching a simple appendectomy. They’re removing the appendix, and I see…worms. Wriggly, tiny white worms.
I’m glad to be wearing a mask, because my face is somewhere between shock and horror. All the surgeons and nurses are carrying on, not even acknowledging the worms, talking about football. I stand there silently, wondering if I’m the only who can see WORMS EVERYWHERE. I finally ask the supervising surgeon, “So…about those worms.”
“Are…are we going to remove them?”
It turns out occasionally seeing worms in abdominal operations is pretty normal, and a sizeable part of the population has them. Sometimes they don’t even mention it to the patient. The surgeons are not there to remove worms, and worms are treated with pharmaceutical interventions anyway. So they remove her appendix, stitch her up with the worms still wriggling around inside her, and I went home to lay awake in bed for eight hours, unable to ever sleep again.”

simpleflareon is the cat’s meow:

“Cats literally have spikes on their dicks. So when they go to mate, it kinda hurts the female cat and they screech like pterodactyls.”

Cabbbyyy reminds us of our gruesome past:

“How brutal medieval torture was. Catherine’s Wheel makes me shudder. At least the coup de grace was a thing where they would mercifully kill the person about to be tortured”

From Wikipedia:

Those convicted as murderers and/or robbers to be executed by “the Wheel”, sometimes termed to be “Wheeled” or “broken by the Wheel”, would be taken to a public stage scaffoldsite and tied to the floor. The execution Wheel was typically a large wooden spoked wheel same as used on wooden transport carts and carriages (often with iron rim), sometimes purposely modified with a rectangular iron thrust attached and extending blade-like from part of the rim. The primary goal of the first act was the agonizing mutilation of the body, not death. Therefore, the most common form would start with breaking the leg bones. To this end, the executioner dropped the execution Wheel on the shinbones of the convicted person and then worked his way up to the arms. Here, rhythm and number of beatings were prescribed in each case, sometimes also the number of spokes on the Wheel. To increase its effect, often sharp-edged timbers were placed under the convict’s joints. Later, there were devices in which the convicted person could be “harnessed”. Although not commonplace, the executioner could be instructed to execute the convicted person at the end of the first act, by aiming for the neck or heart in a “coup de grace“. Even less often, this occurred immediately from the start (from the head down).[2]

ClogsInBronteland ruins cute critters:

“That dolphins rape people. And that otters rape baby seals to death.”

Finch37 reminds you to get your prostate checked!

“To take a biopsy of your prostate they use a special machine, which fires a barbed needle through your gooch at a very high speed. The procedure is done while you’re awake.”

Why is it barbed you ask? Well…

“so when it comes back it brings a tissue sample with it.”

Hispanacea makes our bones hurt:

“When medical examiners cut adult rib cages, they use garden shears.
When they cut baby rib cages, they just use a scalpel since the bones are soft and small.”
