Chances are you've met some nasty people out there, but we like to think most people tend to keep a fairly clean and habitable living space. Even so, there are plenty of things that even the most generally clean person tends to overlook. Yes, believe it or not, there are some parts of your home that are typically pretty gross!

And we haven't even gotten started on all the things that are outside!

Lesson learned thanks to Redditor Mullacnagrom, who asked the online community: "What is very unhygienic that people may not realize?"


"Because people are gross."

Giphy

Money is gross. Every piece of money. Because it's been handled by every person right after they've done everything. Every gross thing.

Because people are gross.

You all disgust me.

"Pick your nose..."

Picking your nose. Not because boogers but because you can actually inoculate a flu or cold virus into your nasal cavity where it just loves to be.

Pick your nose all you want but wash your hands first. Treat your nose holes like your mouth holes and don't put dirty things in.

"That's why..."

Clean your butt cracks in the shower people

"I don't want to, that's gross"

That's why you should clean it.

"People don't replace..."

People don't replace their sponges nearly as often as they should. i hate going to someone's house and they have a disgusting, discolored sponge.

"Your..."

Your computer keyboard, holy CRAP is it filthy.

"Going to work..."

Going to work with the flu.

You can be as careful as you want but even exhaling produces fine aerosols that can travel in the air and make others up to 6ft around you sick.

It's disgusting. Stay home.

Also get your flu shot two weeks before flu season begins. It takes two weeks to kick in. Many people think the flu shot made them sick when the truth is, they got the flu shot too late and got sick before it was effective or got a different strain of the flu.

"Not washing..."

Not washing hands, considering how many people I see do it when they come out of the bathroom. Like seriously, you just touched your penis and probably have poo on them too.

"When restaurants..."

When restaurants leave unwrapped plastic cutlery so you can just help yourself... imagine all those peoples' dirty hands touching the fork that eventually ends up in your mouth.

"Touched by everyone..."

Restaurant menus. Touched by everyone before you and for most people, such as myself, I tend to forget to wash my hands before the food comes out.

"Their phones."

Their phones. I mean, how much porn did you watch on it and how often do you clean the phone...think about it. And when was the last time you took a crap without your phone. But feel free to never wipe it down and press it against your face to take a call.

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?

The past year brought about much anxiety and it's been a challenge to find the light in what has felt like perpetual darkness.

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.
