People Break Down Which Activities Can Seriously F**k You Up

Living life without fear is an admirable belief within reason.


After all, fear can block us from opportunity, and abandoning the thing that terrifies us most can be liberating.

That being said, we shouldn't be reckless.

It's important to note there are a few things in life we should be cognizant of–for they can seriously contribute to our demise if we choose to be blissfully ignorant.

Curious to hear examples of the things we should be cautious of, Redditor Specktakles88 asked:

"What do most people not realize can seriously f*ck you up?"

Out in nature, we should never be too arrogant about our greatness as a species.

The Air Up There

"Hiking at altitude you're not used to."

– walkswithdogs

Solo Climb

"I tried to climb a 5000m peak totally alone, without telling anyone but this nomad dude what my plans were. Got to 4800m or so and started to feel like I was going blind, followed by HAPE symptoms. I've climbed mountains my whole life, so I knew to get the hell outta there, but wow was it a stupid idea. I'm lucky to have made it out unscathed to eat some totally bangin' nomad momos."

​Don't Underestimate Cuteness

"Kangaroos. On my tour of the blue mountains in New South Wales, the guide got on the microphone and announced to the group 'if you see a roo, stay away. They are dumb and will f**K you up.'”

"Apparently they have a claw on their hind leg similar to a raptor that can slice your abdomen so deep that your guys fall right out."

– shallow_kunt

When On Their Turf

"The wild animals in national parks. Those aren't tame, they will hurt or kill you. They don't exist as a photo prop."

– mrfat187

You may want to avoid these in you know what's good for you. Like, your well-being.

Artificial Yum

"sugar free gummy bears."

– LandoBlendo

"LMAO"

– IcyBeary

Heed The Drowsiness Warning

"Benadryl overdose."

– charlie-ratkiller

"I was once a stupid kid who wanted to get high at any cost, so I took a dozen Benadryl pills at once. The only research I did was reading others experiences and checking the LD50 was higher than my dose."

"I have never had such vivid, believable audible hallucinations. I had a full conversation with a friend who walked in, only to realize I was talking to myself. I closed my eyes and multiple streams of different people talking flooded my mind. I don't remember what they were saying, but I remember being able to tune in and out of the different conversations and thinking they were so real. It almost sounded like my own radio station in my head."

"It was incredibly stupid and I'm lucky nothing bad immediately happened."

"Edit: LD50 was higher than my dose, not lower!"

– quetejodas

Toxic Particles

"Cement dust. If you're ever around a construction site and notice cement dust in the air, mask up or move the f'k on."

"Silicosis. Bad news."

– freestyle43

We typically take our physical health for granted.

Don't do that.

Dental Dangers

"Ignoring teeth problems. I had a filling that fell out and I ignored it, worst pain ever. Cost me a lot too."

– klisto1

Prevent A Fatal Progression

"An infection in your gums can easily migrate to your heart."

– Emily_Postal

Can Be Mind-Blowing

"I think tooth abscesses (or something like that) can even extend into the brain and just f'king explode it."

"Sh*t's terrifying."

– vizthex

Assault On Our Ears

"Listening to loud music or being exposed to loud sounds daily. Can cause permanent tinnitus or hearing loss issues down the road."

– ThunderAlex_89

F Cancer

"Hear me out, but cancer treatment."

"You all know about the basics like vomiting and hair loss, but it's so much more than that. The whole point of chemo is that you're betting that your cells can last longer in a toxic environment than the cancer cells, so oyu poison your body. I have permanent nerve damage in my toes from where the chemo f'ked up my nerve endings. I had a fissure up my ass about 10 inches, so sh**ting was a 9/10 pain experience. Only pain that was worse was when the mucositis got so bad I couldn't tolerate drinking water. Imagine being in such pain that you can't drink water even after chugging 20mg of hydrocodone, with the glass right in front of you. I got hospitalized twice for dehydration that way."

"I'm cancer free now, and I hope I never have to go through that again. F'k cancer."

– Stryker2279

Many of the examples listed above are easily taken for granted.

We shouldn't cower in the shadows, however, and be fearful of life's many mysteries.

But if you continue to be inquisitive and keep learning–at any age–newly acquired knowledge can potentially save your life.

And for goodness sake, visit the dentist office from time to time, and ease off on those sugar-free gummy bears.

Yeah just kidding, that's hilarious.

People have different levels of tolerance when it comes to profanity.

And some people can't stand the sound of rude or vulgar language so much that they can't bring themselves to say these naughty words themselves.

But when anyone reaches a high level of anger or frustration, they still might need a verbal outlet.

And instead find themselves coming up with an alternative word, which helps them release their anger, but won't offend any nearby ears.

Redditor No-Citron5628 was curious to hear people's favorite alternatives to curse words, leading them to ask:

"What is your best swear word alternative?"

Frightening us long after the credits stop rolling.
