Sorry, ENBB. You taught me the word. I googled it, then...I Google Image Searched it. :(

Son of a bitch. I didn't know that skin grafts were full of holes.

I really thought that trypophobia was silliness or a very rare phobia experienced by total psychos, but now I see that there are many holes to be afraid of for very good reasons.

I used to love dried lotus blossoms, but NO MORE.

hey Jesse, pro tip, never GIS for lotus breast or lotus boob

I can't look at lotuses without thinking of Lotus Boob.

xpost!!! haha

okay the wall doesn't freak me out that much, probably because it's inorganic

dayo, Wednesday, 22 December 2010 03:22 (twelve years ago) link

I'm actually extremely sensitive to this. Anything beyond an exact, hexagonal honeycomb pattern is just like fuck no.

jerkstore cowboy (Pillbox), Wednesday, 22 December 2010 03:24 (twelve years ago) link

I saw the lotus boobs when I GISed trypophobia.

The feeling I get when I see patterns of holes (or lamprey mouths) is very precisely loathing. I feel disgust, anger, and hate. And pity, maybe.

I don't know if this related, but I have a definite irrational fear of olive loaf or really any type of bologna that has little round stuff embedded in it. I'm perfectly at peace with salami and pepperoni and their regular flecked patterns, but if a slice of bologna is anything but perfectly pink and consistent throughout, then it creeps me out hardcore.

I didn't realize for a long time that those round yellow things with dark borders in that last photo are pistachios. knowing what they are makes them slightly less terrifying, but still, aaargh.

The only organic example of this that doesn't really bother me are honeycombs. I'm fine with those but apparently they're really problematic for some people.

Bridget Christie was on QI earlier this week and was talking about suffering from Trypophobia and not being believed by Sandi Toksvig and others. & i thought about this thread.

Shame i don't think she really stood out that much in the show. Was hoping she might, but not seen her on panel shows before.
& hadn't heard about her in a while. I know I enjoyed a couple of her stand up videos I watched.

It has been noted that holes occupy an unusual ontological position in human psychology, as people tend to refer to them as tangible and countable objects, when in fact they are the absence of something in another object. Holes have also been described as "ontologically parasitic" because they can only exist as aspects of another object.
