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

dayo, Wednesday, 22 December 2010 03:13 (eight years ago) link

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

xpost!!! haha

for this reason, I could never live in an earthship (earthships generally have 'bottle walls')

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

dayo, Wednesday, 22 December 2010 03:22 (eight 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 (eight 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.

Also, things like that building or the art don't bother me at all. This really only gets to me when it's things in the natural world. That tree trunk Grady posted is awful.

totally have the creepy crawlies again

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.

well that fear of bologna thing is because those speckles in your bologna are bone.

I have a Facebook friend who likes one of the accounts and occasionally see them pop up on my feed - you know it's going to be horrible but a stupid bit of your brain wonders just HOW horrible it might be...

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.
