People Divulge Mildly Disturbing Facts They've Learned

Trending

You ever hear a fact that makes you ever so slightly uncomfortable?

You can't go on looking at life quite the same, though, your world hasn't changed....much.



u/Garfunckel asked:

What is a fact that is mildly disturbing?

Here were some of those answers.


The Gays Do Not Approve

Joe Exotic's husbands weren't gay.

El_Cuate

As a gay person this really did disturb me. He was so predatory. He met them when they were little more than kids and got them hooked on it for sure. And I was really troubled on that story they touched on briefly about the 12 year old boy who was "teaching him magic" for, hilariously, anti-drug presentations at schools.

Reset Button

The universe could end at any given moment, and we wouldn't even notice.

And by end, I mean wiped out in terms of both space and time. None of this would have ever happened.

(Wish that novel had gone through.)

Killing For Fun

Dolphins are known to brutally kill baby porpoises for no reason. They don't eat the porpoises, and the porpoises don't antagonize them in anyway.

We Will Never Know

Nobody knows the motives of Stephen Paddock, the guy who did the 2017 Vegas shootings. No political or religious affiliations, no recorded reason for doing it. 59 killed, 869 injured in the attack and nobody knows why.

Zoonotic Parasites

Genetic testing has shown that head lice and pubic lice have separate origins. Head lice have remained with us since we split off from our chimp-like ancestors. Pubic lice, though, were found to have originally come from gorillas.

But Not On Purpose

Cows on average kill more people per year then bears, snakes, scorpions, alligators, crocodiles, and even sharks.

Deers kill more people per year than Cows!

The Future Freaks Me Out

There is a date on the calendar that is the day you die. Could be Jan. 1, could be July 20, could be September 12, whatever it is, there's a day with your name on it. And mostly likely already there has been a random day where you thought, now what's the date again today? And that was the future date of your inevitable death.

It's For The Oppression

We can put a man on the moon, bend time and space in a mine shaft in Illinois but can't develop and establish a technologically competent, federally universal, state compatible, audit friendly permanent voting system in America.

Community Trash Cans

There's a higher chance to find a dead body under your bed than your trashcan (i'm talking about a trashcan that is meant for all of the people in the building)

Antiquated

That intersex new born babies genitalia are surgically changed to look more of a stereotypical "penis" or "vagina". Often times without the parents consent.
