19 People Share The Horrifying Pieces Of Information They Wish They’d Never Learned

10. Living between nests of one of the world’s most dangerous spiders:

I’ve just sold my house, settlement is about a month away so I am still in it at the moment. The real estate agent rang today and asked me to let her know if I can vacate a couple of days before settlement because the new owners want to bug bomb the place before they move in.

Apparently there are a heap of Redbacks in the roof cavity and under the floorboards. If I didn’t need to sell a bunch of stuff and pack the rest I’d leave tonight!

9. What it actually sounds like after a mass shooting:

After the pulse nightclub shooting, when the cops were investigating the scene, you’d think it would be pretty quiet. Just dead bodies, and investigators.

It was a cacophony of ringing cell phones. Friends, family, loved ones had seen the news and were trying to call people to see if they were ok. They weren’t.

8. The existence of certain diseases:

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.

7. Or knowing your parents had the power to prevent them:

My mom could have given me a surgery when I was younger because the doctor said I was going to have speech and hearing issues when I got older. She couldn’t afford it. My grandmother offered to pay without repayment. My mom refused. Found out last night. My mom doesn’t know I know.


[My mom] always been too proud. Found out a lot of stuff last night, she’s a compulsive liar and very narcissistic.

Hell, my dad refused for years to get my tonsils removed when they’d get infected every other year. Not because we couldn’t afford it then, he thought it’d make things worse.

They both always thought they knew better than professionals. Also, mentioned in the original comment, I do have issues with hearing things clearly and speaking in a non-mumbled way.

6. What diarrhea actually is:

When you have diarrhea, the burning of your butthole is the enzymes of your small intestine trying to digest your butthole.

When you don’t have diarrhea, the enzymes have time to die in your large intestine, but because of the fact that your poop is moving so much faster through your system when you have diarrhea, the enzymes are still alive and kicking, ready to eat your butthole.

5. And what a prostate biopsy actually is:

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.

4. That ‘buchasers’ exist:

“Bugchasing, also known in slang as charging, is the practice of pursuing sexual activity with HIV-positive individuals in order to contract HIV. Individuals engaged in this activity are referred to as bugchasers. It is a form of self-harm.

Bugchasers seek sexual partners who are HIV-positive for the purpose of having unprotected sex and becoming HIV-positive; giftgivers are HIV-positive individuals who comply with the bugchaser’s efforts to become infected with HIV.”

I’m still shocked.

3. That nearly all koalas have an STD:

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

2. That you must always check public bathrooms:

I moved to Korea a year ago and I recently learned that public bathrooms are regularly checked for hidden cameras. Apparently, since porn is illegal here, this is how they get their footage. I get kind of scared every time I take my kids to the bathroom now.

1. This sad animal truth:

That cows cry when they are afraid. Also that dogs mourn their deceased owners. That video of the husky at the tombstome makes me tear up every time I think about it.
