If you need a nightmare tonight, watch this parasite escaping its host

A living praying mantis, a glass of liquid (probably water), a horsehair worm escaping out of it. This is not the first time I have seen thisalthough the mantis was dead then—but that doesn't make this video any less disgusting and terrifying, yet so fascinating that I had to watch it all. » 12/19/14 7:20pm Friday 7:20pm

This is how sex robots would look inside one day (NSFW)

I initially thought this was a photo of a real art installation reflecting on the the objectification of women. It is not. It's a computer generated cutaway of a futuristic sex robot made by French 3D artist Cesar Vonc. After seeing this, I don't think I would be able to get aroused by a sex robot ever become available » 12/18/14 8:15pm Thursday 8:15pm

Seeing a giant rubber band ball being cut in half is freaking gross/cool

This has to be one of the grossest and coolest things I've seen in a while: A guy cutting a giant rubber band ball in half. At one point it feels like the thing is alive and getting ready to jump on the dude's face and suck his bodily fluids out of his eyes, mouth, and nostrils. Disgusting spaghetti monster. » 12/18/14 7:49pm Thursday 7:49pm

How to prepare and eat live octopus without choking to death

The first time I saw someone eating a live octopus was in the movie Old Boy and I thought it was just a far too gross scene made up by its creators. But later I learnt it's an actual Korean dish, a rather dangerous one because if you don't prepare it properly, the tentacles can stick to your throat and kill you. » 12/11/14 10:18pm 12/11/14 10:18pm

Video: All 212,470 on-screen deaths in the Lord of the Rings trilogy

It's been over a decade since the Lord of the Rings trilogy wrapped up and we're still totaling the body count. After all those sweeping battles and that epically long journey, Digg Video tallied up the death toll and it's an insane 212,470. I guess those movies were pretty long, right? » 12/10/14 7:02pm 12/10/14 7:02pm

And this year's grossest Christmas ad goes to...

Last year, Poo-Pourri's ad Girls Don't Poop proved that humor is the best weapon if you need to advertise a stink-eliminating toilet spray. So this year, for the Christmas campaign, they decided to take their scatological humor a step further and show to the world that Santa suffers from gastric problems too. » 11/20/14 11:42pm 11/20/14 11:42pm

4-acre spider web may be the grossest thing you will see this Halloween*

This report on a 4-acre spider web covering a building has made shiver and curl in disgust. You are looking at the Baltimore Wastewater Treatment Plant, where 4 acres of their facility were covered by a spider web made by an estimated 107 million spiders. That's 35,176 spiders per cubic meter! » 10/31/14 4:08pm 10/31/14 4:08pm

Video: Oysters are fantastic at filtering dirty water

Oysters are fun to eat because they're delicious and celebratory and remind you of the ocean. Turns out that last part is especially true because those suckers are just fantastic at filtering out dirty water. Watch these oysters slurp up the dirty water in the tank in this time lapse and make it all clean. » 10/29/14 7:40pm 10/29/14 7:40pm

Burning artificial sweeteners releases some bizarre shooting webs

Our favorite destroyer of objects, the red hot nickel ball, is back. This time it's torching artificial sweeteners like Splenda, Sweet N' Low and Truvia. Splenda and Sweet N' Low put up honorable fights but essentially caramelizes. Truvia, however, starts shooting out these weird spider web looking things when burned. » 10/10/14 12:29am 10/10/14 12:29am

The weirdest things women used as contraceptives throughout history

What does crocodile dung and weasel testicles and pig intestines and fizzy cola and moonshine mixed with ground beaver testicles have in common with each other? They were all used as contraceptives throughout history. Some were inserted into a woman's body, others were eaten and a few were just worn. » 10/04/14 1:32am 10/04/14 1:32am

Burger King's all-black burger looks absolutely disgusting in real life

To no one's surprise, Burger King's all black burger looks like a disgusting turd in real life. Actually, it might be even worse than some turds. It looks like it tastes like ash. It looks like it's made from burnt cardboard. It looks like it'll bring death to anyone who dare eats it. » 9/19/14 8:07pm 9/19/14 8:07pm

Guy vacuums a subway floor and eats dinner off of it in gross out ad

It's very clearly a stunt ad, so calibrate your reactions accordingly. But still. Gross. Bissell Canada wants us to believe that they believe in their all-in-one steam cleaner and vacuum so much that they'll eat off any surface that it cleans. Even if it's a gross, mucky, grimy subway floor. » 8/29/14 8:30pm 8/29/14 8:30pm

How come some ice cream sandwiches don't melt in the blazing sun?

After hearing the news story about how a mother was concerned that her son's ice cream sandwich from Wal-Mart didn't melt after 12 hours in the sun, Dan Collins of KIKN 100.5 in Sioux Falls tested it out himself and recorded the process for video proof. Indeed, these things don't melt. But why? How is this possible? » 7/29/14 12:24am 7/29/14 12:24am
