Oh yeah, that cat needs to not exist. Or I need to not be aware of it, one or the other.

Yeah, lotus roots never bothered me before? But that bleeding fungus, I mean you'd have to be blind and DEAD not to at least grok why that has the appearance of being antithetical to human life and/or sanity.

I dunno, that nail polish fingers one is kinda creepy

worms-in-brain not bothering me for some reason, hey at least you don't have any pain receptors in your brain

Є|Э (Edward III), Wednesday, 22 December 2010 16:16 (3 years ago) Permalink

The lack of pain recep is what DOESN'T TELL YOU that WYRMS ARE EATING YOUR BRANE which seems like rather a bigger problem.

oh well i mean duh the idea of holes in skin is gross, and a worm-eaten brain

My first job when I was 17, I worked as a dishwasher. I was kind of a punk or something and I always wore heavy black boots. I didn’t stop to think that working in high-temperature steam environment should really change that.

Anyway, after about a month of working there, I developed all these little round holes in the skin on the bottom of my feet. I was pretty freaked out – I thought maybe it was leprosy or something. I had no fucking idea. My doctor said that my sweat was eroding the skin on my feet and maybe I should look into purchasing some better-ventilated footwear.

(couldn't find any pictures of this particular malady - sorry, Jesse!)

rake rock reggae (kkvgz), Wednesday, 22 December 2010 16:34 (3 years ago) Permalink

i have a weird horror-aversion to patterns of holes or openings in flesh (the back of the surinam toad, for instance), but in no other context do such things bother me. honeycombs, perforated tree trunks, lotus flowers - no problem. i see the potentially revolting alienness of those things, but it doesn't get me. honeycombed flesh, otoh, like those photoshopped lotus fingers, really freaks me out. seems to me that it's related to my fear of certain worms, of being maggot-riddled. remember a book of parasites that a grade school english teacher kept about that included horrid images of such things as parasitic peurocysticercosis, pages i could only handle by their edges lest my fingers touch anything unforgivable. i couldn't stop looking though.

there's something about beholding a wholly wormy thing, covered with tiny mouthlike openings from which blind white heads rhythmically emerge and then retract in wavelike patterns...

xp:

Although not truly trypophobia related, that reminds me of this one time I was riding my bike down a trail and came across this groundhog corpse with a huge chuck of flesh taken out of its back. The hole was writhing with maggots. I grabbed a couple sticks to move the body off the trail, but when I got close, the groundhog popped up and ran away!

groundhog's doctor recommended maggot debridement therapy, don't see what the big deal is

Whoah that is really interesting. Wouldn't a good soak and pumice take care of that for you, too, though? Seems like a combo of "no ventilation" but also "can't be arsed to take care of self" issue, at least in normal non-tropical jungle circs that also do not involve perpetually flooded trenches of any kind.

"can't be arsed to take care of self"

what was at play here.

rake rock reggae (kkvgz), Wednesday, 22 December 2010 16:58 (3 years ago) Permalink

some years ago, i knew (by association) a guy who was terrified of acne, because his mother had told him that pimples were caused by and contained parasitic worms. he was pretty seriously crazy. he also thought phone poles were radioactive due to secret chemicals used in creosote manufacturing.

Apparently they're carcinogenic!

My mother thought that ringworm was an actual WORM, and not a fungus or whatever it actually is. So when she got on her breastbone from hugging some kid in her elementary class who had it on his or her head, she was practically ready to vomit and/or scratch her skin off in panic and grossness until I thought to look it up. Poor Momz.

Jesus Christ, the apple tree! (Laurel), Wednesday, 22 December 2010 17:05 (3 years ago) Permalink

I thought it was a worm too when I was younger.

ENBB, Wednesday, 22 December 2010 17:09 (3 years ago) Permalink

fyi, a skin fungus is not any less gross than a parasitic worm

Indolence Mission (DJP), Wednesday, 22 December 2010 17:10 (3 years ago) Permalink

It seems less invasive, to me. But obv not to everyone.

interesting tidbit from some medical report on it:

Tunnel-like spaces were built inside the horny layer, where the bacteria exhibited a hairy surface.

talking about my cock i see.
