8 gross things that won't kill you


Swallow those screams and hold back the cringe that’s wriggling up your spine. Yes, the eight things below are on the icky side of the spectrum. But you know what? It’s silver lining time. GL presents eight things that might gross you out, but almost definitely will not kill you.

 

Public restrooms. The whole contracting-an-STD-on-a-toilet-seat myth has been thoroughly debunked, so no worries. But do wash your hands.

 

Hair in your food. Yes, it’s disgusting. Yes, you should send that plate back if you’re in a restaurant. But hair does not transmit diseases, so you’re safe.

 

Eating bugs. It’s just like Dad always said—protein! fiber!

 

Hotdogs. No, you really don’t want to know how their made. Eat ‘em at cookouts and enjoy. Then maybe have some fruit.

 

Sweaty gym bag smell. That’s not to say you shouldn’t clean it out and wash that sucker, though. The smell is from bacteria—ewwy.

 

Getting pooped on by a bird. Hey, it’s good luck! But wet wipes in your purse are not necessarily a bad idea, either.

 

Gum on your shoe. Yeah, we wouldn’t pull it off and chew it, but it’s more of an annoyance than anything else.

 

Double dippers. Unless they’re sick, the added bacteria in an already-out dish of dip won’t hurt you.

 

What’s your number-one gross-out? Tell us in the comments!
