The world is undeniably a beautiful and amazing place... filled with a bunch of disturbing realities. Stopping to contemplate the saltier facts of life can really leave you nauseated. Not all of it is disgusting either. Some things are so frightening that they chill our bones and curdle our stomach acid. For example, we can gaze in wondrous amazement how the universe continues to spin, or go insane worrying that it could all end in a second. We can explore the wild of the animal kingdom and learn so much about ourselves, while contracting horrible diseases from the creatures we study. We can be thankful for the intricate machine that is our body, or be grossed out by how disgusting it can be. We can step out our front door with a willing spirit to see the world, or stay in our homes where we are liable to not suffer horrendous deaths. Yes, the world is an amazing place, but there are plenty of things in it that can steal your sleep at night once you know them. Sometimes the price you pay for knowledge is an agonized grimace, and it is often said that ignorance is bliss. Here are twenty-five facts so disturbing that whoever coined the old cliché must have known them before saying it. Grab a bag to barf in along with the anxiety meds. It's about to get real.
