We’ve all come across several instances where we felt like our hands were starting to sweat for no reason. The immediate response usually tends to come from witnessing something very nerve-wracking, like watching a terrifying photo that has no explanation. Sometimes, all we need is to look at such a photo to ruin our day! Here, we’ve gathered some photos that will surely make everyone do a double-take.
Hanging by a Thread
Whether you’re paragliding or skydiving, it’s always important to check your equipment thoroughly. A slight mistake can cost you your life. This dude was probably having the time of his life roaming around in the clouds until, of course, he decides to look at his carabiner.
Take this as a gentle reminder to always secure your paragliding gadgets and check twice. Since this man had enough time to take a picture of it, it’s safe to say he probably escaped its dangers without too much risk.
A Tragic Moment for a Glass Couple
This picture comes with loads of uneasy emotions, but kudos to the photographer who managed to take the snap of the glass before it probably broke into pieces.
The couple over there was so into themselves that they totally forgot to mind the imminent danger. They probably didn’t even realize that one of the glasses was just hanging on the edge of the table, ready to take a fall any moment now.
This Person Might Not Want to Swim Again
Imagine taking a breather and chilling along the beautiful ocean. Sounds fun, doesn’t it? However, do we even consider what’s lurking beneath us? This person seems to be having a blast sitting on the surfboard, but she certainly isn’t aware of the “little” visitor who’s probably looking for a healthy breakfast.
So, what did we learn, kids? We should always make sure to look out below. You never know who could be unexpectedly accompanying you in your adventures.
The Windows Look a Little Dirty
This man is probably risking his life while trying to clean the windows. Well, someone has to do it, right? The interesting fact is that he seems to be holding onto the windows without any support.
Looking at his legs balancing like that makes our palms sweaty, for sure. It’s not unusual for people to forget where they are and take a breather. We just hope this guy doesn’t forget that all of a sudden.
Taking a Break from Life Never Felt Better
This guy is living the dream. He seems so casual and careless while lying on a curved structure like that. Assuming there’s nothing below to cushion his fall, we would probably think twice before pulling off something like this.
A lot of worrying thoughts come into mind when we see stuff like these. What if he falls? Is there something below him? How could he do that? He seems to be enjoying the sky gazing. So, let’s just leave him be.
A Bowl of Push Pins
This picture is absolutely freaky. The story behind it is even more terrifying. The tale started when one morning, this person went down to the dining table to grab his breakfast. He found his cereal already in the bowl with milk in it.
So, he pulled the bowl closer and dipped his spoon for a bite. As soon as he looked at the spoon, he jumped in terror finding these sharp edge pins. The bowl basically had a disinfectant solution, where someone put the pins for decontaminating.
Aren’t All Creams the Same?
This picture is indeed going to make you feel nauseous, because that’s what happened to us as well! After seeing this picture, we will not be able to have bread with butter – or any topping, for that matter – for a long time.
Only God knows what went wrong with the person who did this! Perhaps the person thinks that all the boxes that have written “cream” on their lids have the same functions.
Let’s Not Slip Out on This One
This man is probably holding on for dear life. That surely doesn’t look like a soft landing. Lord knows what’s waiting for him down there. Maybe, his worst nightmare will pop out of nowhere if he decides to let go, or maybe he’ll have a pleasant surprise.
He wouldn’t even have something to grab onto if he slipped. Well, we can’t tell for sure, but he sure looks like he’s having a blast.
A Cruise Like This Seems Fun
Sky gazing is a popular activity when we’re on a cruise. However, what happens when you see a giant wall of water like this when you look to the side? This was probably taken from a fishing ship, and the photographer caught a perfect shot.
The famous shows like Moments Before Disaster always catch content like this. However, this is pretty much a regular sight for the fishermen in the seas.
“Mom, I Lost My Sandal”
We’ve all wondered what’s on the other side of escalators, haven’t we? This slipper probably got separated from its partner and is about to witness the underworld. Jokes aside, images like these make our hearts beat faster. Did the escalator stop?
Did the sandal get eaten up? These are the questions that came to our minds. We tried to come up with answers but failed. Only the guy who took the photo can tell what actually happened.
Now That’s How You Cross a Bridge!
Our first thoughts? What on earth was this guy thinking? Just looking at it gave us goosebumps. We’ve always been taught to never look down when we’re in situations like these, but this guy is facing things head-on!
He probably didn’t appreciate the traffic on the “good” side of the bridge. Thus, he decided to take another route. This is the “shortcut” our friends tell us they know. It’s never the right decision.
When your friend says or does something stupid, you probably do a facepalm. While it’s not usual to react like this, this dude took things to the next level, literally.
We sure hope his kicks have enough grip to hold on to that railing. This certainly does not seem safe, no matter how foolish your friends are. We imagine the guy will eventually get tired and come back to his senses.
These Marbles Are Pretty
At first glance, these looked like any other glass marbles. A second look makes this picture seem quite “different.” The pearl-like pattern that’s visible is a snake inside the eggshell. These eggshells look unusual; some might even say pretty.
Once we realized that these are nothing close to marbles, we thought that it is best to leave them be. We ought not to mistake them for ping-pong balls either – the mother of these snakes certainly wouldn’t appreciate that if she’s around.
What Are Those?
Some people probably go too far while trying to infuriate other people. This lady took little assistance from her shoes in doing that. Well, at first glance, the picture looked frightening, but then gradually, it started to look normal.
The toes look so displeasing when they’re positioned like that. This is probably how you can behave with your siblings when your parents are around although we would not recommend that.
Just Make Sure to Fasten The Seatbelts
This is not a pleasing sight to see. Imagine hoping to get a window seat on a plane, and when you finally do, you come across this. The flight attendants probably assured the person that the tape won’t come off easily, and even if it does, they can probably tape it up again quite easily.
Now, is that really reassuring? Imagine being the bloke who has to sit in this spot with crumbling fear.
What a Pleasant View!
The skyscrapers and the roads of the city look amazing when we’re looking at them from a ledge. This person looks like he is chilling and enjoying a view like no other. What would happen if he moved a little further, though?
All we can say is, we’ll probably have to be a bit careful while enjoying life like this. Plus, this guy should probably take a step back because that sure looks dangerous!
Is There Something in My Eye?
This is one of those photos that catch us by surprise and end up making us really nervous. We surely needed a second look to confirm whether that is a real eye. This person probably asked their pet bee to check if there was anything in her/his eye.
The bee is delightfully giving a proper check-up. Jokes aside, this photo does make us quite uncomfortable. We probably wouldn’t be able to keep our eyes open if this happened with us.
Don’t You Just Hate Cliff-hangers?
We should never go overboard while we’re on a trip. It only takes a few seconds for life to take a huge turn. No matter how tempting this might look, the danger outweighs everything. Assuming that this is a massive fall, we wouldn’t want to be in her position.
She does seem like she’s enjoying the view, though. The thrill of the moment makes us do weird and dangerous things, and we rate this one to be right up there among the most dangerous ones.
Falling in a Triangle
Who wants to fall for a love triangle? Nobody, for sure! The answer is the same for everyone. The only triangle people truly love is the shape of chips or other snacks. However, this Instagram user has decided to try something else.
She literally took herself inside a triangular tummy – the tummy of an iced lake! Is the amount of risk and discomfort associated with such an activity worth a few Instagram likes? What do you think?
What Are You Waiting For?
This is an utterly breath-taking picture and apparently triggers the imaginative mind of its viewers when it comes to the unknown beneath the waterline. Whether you’re a thrill seeker or a nature lover, this picture is sure to catch your attention!
The lake seems to showcase a combination of beauty and mystery. Not to mention, the picture leaves all its viewers curious about what would happen if the man jumps into the lake. Will he experience an exquisite underwater journey or will the underwater creatures devour him?
Go Ahead, Take the Wrong Step
Rope bridges have always fascinated us. The way they roll side-to-side when we put too much weight on one side seems thrilling. For some people, though, this is rather terrifying, especially when they can’t see where they’re headed.
This person seems to be concentrated on not making the wrong move. That’s understandable; no one would want to accidentally slip from this rope bridge. The fog makes it even worse – or better if you like surprises.
Imagine you see that there’s a drain beside the road, so you’re passing very cautiously so as not to drop anything, but unfortunately, you end up dropping the most important one! Just imagining this scares the marbles out of us!
This person might be holding his breath all the while since the keys looked like they were about to fall down the drain! Luckily, the key managed to stay put in the middle of two grates.
Please Read Before You Act
This picture is going to make your inner Monica Geller scream! Seriously, how on earth did anyone end up throwing an earbud down a food waste disposer? This just reflects how everyone always tends to be in a hurry and doesn’t pay attention to instructions carefully before attempting anything.
Another possible case is that the thrower might have read the marketing tagline ‘A perfect earbud can feed your musical thirst!’ and took the meaning literally! Jokes aside, please read before you act.
VGA Board Without Screws
If you have used a desktop computer, then you know how important VGA boards are. Without them, there will be nothing but darkness, as monitors and projectors will not work. The VGA cables come with screws as a locking method for the board.
Hanging it out like this in the open will absolutely drive a computer user mad. So, this image probably made a lot of desktop users feel uneasy and concerned, for sure.
Pull Your Sleeves Up When Washing
Everyone would probably agree to the fact that this picture would cause anyone to feel uneasy. The feeling of having your sleeves wet while washing hands is completely irksome and annoying. The discomfort is indescribable!
The above picture is probably causing the same amount of annoyance. God knows why on earth anyone even captured such a repelling moment! Perhaps, the person was meaning to irritate others, and apparently, he is succeeding on this mischievous attempt.
Don’t Spill It
Throughout your childhood, you’ve probably heard your mom advise you not to make your room messy countless times. You’ve probably spilled drinks, water, or paint several times too, much to your mom’s disappointment.
Well, this picture would make your mom go crazy, for sure. Can you imagine what would happen if the car skidded to a stop all of a sudden? We are “not loving” the idea of cleaning up the mess afterward.
Anything for That Shot!
Upon looking at this young lady’s face, you probably wouldn’t be able to tell that she’s sitting on a narrow ledge thousands of feet above the ground. She sure seems to be enjoying the view from the height.
We sure don’t feel comfortable enjoying the view from the height, though. The position seemed tempting to us too. Taking a fall from here might not look too good for her CV. Well, at least she’s enjoying it.
“I’m On Top of the World”
Some people really do put their lives on the line in order to take the perfect Instagram photos – we would think twice before doing that, though. This guy here could’ve sat down and still ended up with a beautiful picture.
However, this champ had to take things to a fearsome level and strike this cool pose. Good for him! We probably wouldn’t have been able to pull this off so confidently.
Looks Like We Have a Guest
Whoever owns this shoe might not want to keep on wearing them. This little spider is probably relaxing in his new home after an exhausting day. He might even be trying to find the perfect size that fits him.
This shoe certainly doesn’t fit this spider, but he probably loves the place. The owner, however, probably had a mini heart attack when he saw the spider in his pair of FILAs.
Please Don’t Look Down!
Mountaineering is an exciting activity, for sure. Sometimes, things go smoothly, and you end up on top of the hill full of thrill, but no one talks about the things that you have to go through to get there.
This lad decided to take a photo of his journey while dangling on a few metal rods on the side of this snowy mountain. Just looking at this makes our heart pound faster.
Don’t Believe Your First Impression
Sometimes you just look at things and sense a disaster right away. This picture has a similar story to offer. At your first glance at the picture, you will be concerned that the TV is going to fall off at any moment.
However, the monitor is in a slightly bent position, and the stand is tightly clasped by the partition wall by the cabinet, so it won’t fall off. It did make you a little tense, though, didn’t it?
Don’t Go Cheap
This picture might look cool to some and absolutely bizarre to others. No, this picture hasn’t been edited to fit a weirdly positioned door. This is an actual door that someone has decided to use.
We don’t know if it was an artistic decision on the house owner’s part or if he or she really liked this particular door for whatever reason and wanted to have it for his or her home. No matter what the reasoning behind it is, it sure makes us feel uncomfortable.
Is the Climb That Important?
Our friend here looks like he’s holding on for dear life while on his way to the top. We can’t seem to see anything that he can hold onto for support either – which makes it all the more dangerous.
He probably decided to “man up” and disregard the importance of having any sort of protective gear before taking this climb. The descent doesn’t look that tough, though; he just needs a slight push to reach his goal.
When You Have OCD
Having OCD can cause one to become a perfectionist. People with OCD need everything to be in the perfect place and order, especially in their homes. The contrasting situation would just cause irritation and annoyance otherwise.
Sometimes, this gives others a chance to mess with you. All they need to do is find a little tea table and put bottles, cans, bulbs, bowls, and containers at the edge – making a perfect blend of triggers and anxiety right there.
Perfectionists Have Left the Chat
Here comes another OCD triggering picture on our list. This would probably mean nothing to many of us because most of us are concerned about the heavenly texture and taste of M&Ms.
Although we are sometimes picky about the colors, the shape is probably none of our concerns. However, for individuals with OCD, the case is not the same. This one unmatched shape will surely send chills down their spine.
One’s Talent, Another’s Nightmare
This man is surely doing a great job flaunting his talent, but looking at this picture is probably terrible for viewers with weak hearts. The picture is of the Ukraine urban mountaineer who has recently earned a big name in high-stunting.
He is mostly known as Mustang Wanted. He shares videos and pictures of his endeavours under this name. Watching him climbing the steep cliffs smoothly with no sweat might excite the netizens, but that doesn’t diminish the horror of these images.
The Image With a Hidden Message
You might have come across a few pictures that have a hidden message on the internet. This image of a compass is no different. Before seeing the picture, we can bet that the majority of readers have never tried to draw any other geometric shape except for a circle using a compass.
Apparently, a compass can help you draw other shapes too. The picture preaches the message that every trivial gear we use in our lives can be used in multiple ways. We just need to figure it out.
Disordered things always cause people some degrees of anxiety, but this picture of porcelain plates probably takes the cake. Porcelain plates come in different sizes and shapes. People choose their preferred designs and colors and buy sets of those plates.
People probably don’t bother checking to see if all the plates in the set are the same because it is obvious that that’s how they’re supposed to be. Apparently, this is not always true, as you can see. One of these plates does not belong in this picture, this is making our hands sweaty for sure.
Just Hang in There!
While camping on the side of a cliff looks absolutely thrilling, it can’t be denied that it has to be a nerve-wracking experience. Only a daredevil might be up for such an adventure.
We aren’t even sure how strong those ropes are to carry the weight of people. It must feel like you’re gambling with your luck. However, it seems like the guys are truly enjoying their time by the cliff side.
New Designs Hurt My Eyes
This picture might make you think that the tailor may have made a genuine mistake while designing this shirt. This is what we too thought in the first place, but we later learned that that’s not true. You may or may not be surprised to know that this t-shirt is not the result of any unconscious malfunction.
Instead it is considered to be a revolutionary new design. People apparently are fans of asymmetrical designs – not us, though.
Rolling a bunch of dice should be the simplest thing in the world. They are used in a plethora of games and can often win you big money if you get the numbers right. But some dice are designed differently from others.
What is striking about the die in the middle here is that the face with six on it is horizontally positioned as opposed to the two on either side of it, which are vertical. We have no doubt in our mind that this person’s hands got very sweaty when they took a glance at this strange anomaly.
Completely Out of Line
If you have a ruler or a straight object to help you work your way along a line, it should be pretty easy to make dots alongside it. But no, this person still managed to mess it up.
As a result, anyone who sees this photo now can’t help but feel a strong sense of stress and is naturally put on edge because of it. Until this guy erases the dots and puts them all on the yellow line, our palms are going to be very sweaty.
What the Fork?
There seems to be a universal idea of what a fork should look like. It generally has either three or four prongs, or tines, whatever you want to call them. And generally, they are of equal length.
While the prongs on this fork technically fulfill those criteria, the long gap in the middle of the fork has completely taken us off-guard. What is the purpose of those extra few millimeters? Somebody tell us, for God’s sake!
How Could He Miss?
The laws of gravity are pretty consistent, and yet, some things fall in weird ways and it’s difficult for us to comprehend why. Take pouring a liquid from one container into another. It should be one of the easiest things in the world to do.
And yet, this person still managed to mess this up. The liquid is miraculously trickling down the side of the glass and completely missing its target. We don’t know whether to laugh or cry.
Moving chairs in offices can definitely do things that put a lot of workers on edge. Not only can we fall off these small vehicles, but all sorts of things can get tangled up in their wheels.
With that said, the following image presents a dilemma that many of us have faced over the years. And although we know we’re not the only one who has been through this, it doesn’t make the sight of it any less horrific.
The Backward Boy
Even the best of us get caught wearing an item of clothing either backward or inside out from time to time. It just a lapse of concentration in an otherwise straightforward day. And it seems like the younger you are, the likelier this will happen.
However, there is no denying that the sight of this kid wearing his hoodie backward is nothing short of traumatizing. He looks like something straight out of a Stephen King novel.
Only Slightly to the Right
It is common knowledge that one is advised to go in the direction of arrow signs that are marked on the ground, on a road or in a parking lot. But what happens when you’re not entirely sure what direction to go in?
Specifically, in this photo, the arrow has been shoddily designed so that the point is slightly pointing to the right. We can assume that it means to go straight, but we can’t help but feel unsettled by its inaccuracies.
This Is Unnatural
Have you ever met someone who doesn’t like watermelon? Yeah, neither have we. These huge fruits are so refreshing on a hot summer day and we are used to opening one up to find the red, juicy goodness inside. But have you ever seen someone carve a watermelon like this?
We don’t know how to describe it. There’s just something kind of weird about seeing a watermelon without its casing. Why don’t we feel this way when we see peeled apples, potatoes, and bananas? Surely it’s the same thing, no?
Every Woman’s Worst Nightmare
We have already taken a look at a sandal that got caught in an escalator. It’s not pretty. But what if you are still attached to an item of clothing that got stuck in one of these flights of moving stairs?
That’s exactly what happened when this woman was using an escalator and her dress got stuck at the top of one. It’s one of the most stressful things any woman can experience and the sheer sight of it is killing us!
This Tea Taste’s Kind of Strange
In theory, having a nice, warm, cup of tea should be one of the most stress-free activities one can partake in. After a long, hard day at work, it is the perfect way to wind down with the people you love.
But what if you nearly finished your tea only to discover that a dead spider is resting at the bottom of the mug? We don’t think we’ve ever seen anything so disturbing in our lives.
Don’t Lie, You’ve Done This Too
Remember back in the day when we used to play with literally everything we could get our hands on? That’s right, even poor needles didn’t escape our childish wraths. We’ve all pricked our skins with needles and tried to act like a cool kid in class.
Gradually, everyone would start doing this, and it probably wasn’t anything special anymore. Well, this is how our skin looks like when we prick it with a needle. Still want to play with needles?
Are You High?
People nowadays just love everything high. Just think about it – girls love boys who are taller, industrialists love higher profits, architects love higher floored buildings, students love higher CGPA, and these two people, as you can see, love higher grounds.
Whatever it is, if you’re planning to climb up any cliff top, you’re supposed to take necessary security equipment along with you. Lack of proper safety equipment not only makes the above picture look scary but also makes such people look silly.
Cheese Cake? More Like a Cheese Map!
As a cheesecake lover, this picture made us quite upset. Why would anyone cut the cake this unevenly? Some internet users commented that, if you don’t know how to cut a cheesecake properly, you simply don’t deserve to have it – and we agree!
You ought to cut it in a sharp triangular shape. After all, it’s a cake. While the taste of the cheesecake does not change because of the way it’s cut, a beautiful triangular shape surely does make the eating experience more pleasing.
This picture might make no sense to you at first glance, neither did it to us. It just appears to be a number of coins placed sideways on a table. Our initial thoughts were, who would have the patience to set this up? It seems like it would be similar to setting up a domino set.
Although it looks sort of aesthetically pleasing, the fact that the coins may fall, roll off the table, and get lost in the corners of the room forever is definitely making us nervous.
Secret Underwater Chamber
One undeniable fact about the current era is that engineers brought revolution especially in the construction of modern infrastructure. The processes related to building however are not always easy. Here is one instance of the processes involved in bridge construction.
The enclosed structure appearing in water is called Cofferdam, and inside it, the foundation is built. It’s funny how one junior citizen even described it as a tilted rocket or submarine, and he thought sea monsters are locked inside the secret underwater chamber.
