There are many leisurely activities train commuters keep themselves occupied with – like reading a magazine – while in transit. Sanding down your calloused feet should never be one of them.

The New York Post featured a video of a man taking his personal hygiene to a gag-inducing-level by doing it publicly.


When it comes to grooming in public, this dude committed gross negligence.


Candy Hatsune Wolff was mortified sitting near the vicinity of the foot sandman during her Wednesday commute around 1 p.m.


The other passengers were oblivious to the detritus from the foot skin swirling around in the car.

The man can be seen in the video using a Dremel to scrape off his callouses while on the southbound North Jersey Coast Line train headed for Long Branch.




Wolff took out her smartphone and recorded the scene.

She later told NJ.com, "I still don't know how he decided it was OK on the train. I guess the callus was bothering him."

"Should I take a picture? I don't want to humiliate him. Eventually I decided to."

Wolff believes she's the only witness and said that the man sloughed off his corns in peace.


Wolff posted the incident on her Facebook page, where it eventually caught the eye of Twitter.





Others were more forgiving and gave him the benefit of a doubt.





This isn't the first time someone publicly maintained their hygiene in public.

Another passenger was shamed for lathering up and shaving his beard while on board another NJ transit line.



The man who shaved in transit was later identified as Anthony Torres, according to the MSN. He told the Washington Post he was unable to work due to medical conditions and a prior work-related injury.

But after he was shamed for his indiscretion from a video of him posted online, people eventually had a change of heart when they discovered he was a homeless person just trying to make himself look presentable for a family visit.

Jordan Uhl of Washington started a GoFundMe campaign for Torres and managed to raise $38,000 in two days to help him get back on his feet.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
