People Confess What Genuinely Disgusts Them

No two people react the same way to a pungent odor, gratuitous violence in film and television, or unruly, off-putting behavior.

As some people have a fairly high tolerance for gore, aren't bothered by taste and smell, and are so patient that they simply aren't bothered by anyone.

Although, everyone has their limits.

And despite what they might say, there are very few people who don't have one thing which even the very thought of will make them gag, just a little bit.


Redditor Remarkable_Major_872 was curious to hear the things that truly revolt people, leading them to ask:
"What genuinely disgusts you?"

"I forgot about the mobile game ads with fake mini games that redirect you to the App Store."

"Those might be even worse."- Tyler_Martin1

Cleaning Comes At A Price...

"Touching this to clean the sink is always a gut-wrenching, vomit-inducing moment."- meiliraijow

Men Marking Their Territory...

"Sitting on a toilet seat with pee on it."- KAWAiiANGXL

No Matter The Package, Always Bad For You!

"Dipping tobacco."

"Carrying around a bottle of your own brown cloudy spit that smells like absolute death just skeeves me out on a level I can barely even describe."

"Bonus points if you're the douche who leaves the spit bottles or cups for other people to clean up."- Porn_is_my_bae

We all have our limits.

But even if you aren't wholeheartedly repulsed by any or all of these things, that still doesn't mean you should tolerate it!

How else will people learn to stop?

NSFW Details About Historical Figures Left Out Of History Books

It's very popular to create rumors about certain historical figures to which there is no concrete evidence.

Such as the sexual orientation of Abraham Lincoln or the alleged illicit behavior of Lewis Carroll and Hans Christian Andersen.

Understandably, these mostly baseless, though not necessarily false, theories are left out of history books.

However, there are facts about legends of history which have, indeed, been proven true, but are also left out of history books.

Namely, because it's not the sort of information many would consider in polite conversation, let alone be talked about in schools.

Even if it is no less fascinating than anything else we might learn.

We've sure been hearing the term "conspiracy theory" a lot lately.

But there are some conspiracy theories that do make us wonder if there is something to them.

You don't have to be acquainted with someone to know enough about the kind of person they are.

Observing their attitude around people or what clothes they wear can easily give away a stranger's temperament that identifies them as either superficial or genuine.

Of course, being judgmental based on one's appearance is not an unfair assessment. However, you know deep down inside, we all have the predisposition to do exactly that.

Affairs and infidelity are sadly a more common part of life than we care to admit.

People cheat. it seems to be part of the human condition.

Are we meant to be monogamous?

That's a story for a different article.

I say though, if you're going to cheat... have some basic human decency.

Don't cheat with people you all know.

And how are BFFs not automatically off limits?
