Pins and needles. Being insanely sweaty. Having something stuck in your teeth. All of these represent some of the worst painless sensations known to humankind. Some users on reddit had a few more to share.


1. When seaweed grazes your feet or legs in the ocean: "Guess I'm dying now."

2. Your thighs sticking to the seat on a hot day.

3. Trying to put on clean clothes after a shower in a hot and humid room.

4. Randomly crunching down on a couple of grains of sand while eating.

5. When you think there is one more step, and you stomp the ground like it owes you money.

6. Or when you're sleeping and think you're falling but wake up and realize you're not.

7. Stepping on a wet floor while wearing socks. Squelch.

8. Walking through an unseen spider web.

9. That feeling you get when you suddenly realize that you left your phone/wallet in a public establishment...over an hour ago!

10. Hiccups lasting more than an hour.

11. When you really need to sneeze but can't.

12. That cold shivery chill feeling - every hair standing on edge - that comes immediately before a massive surge of diarrhea.

13. Your hand reaching through the disgusting cold sink water to reach the drain after its been sitting for a couple of hours because you forgot to drain it.

14. Biting down a little too hard and accidentally dragging your teeth against each other. Like nails on a chalkboard but in your mouth.

15. Pulling styrofoam liner out of a cardboard box. The worst.

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
