We've all been there - googled something, and then quickly realised it was a terrible mistake and we can't unsee that gross Google image.
But now, savvy internet users on reddit have revealed exactly what they want to warn others about. Warning - some of these will bring up some pretty gruesome results...
One of the top regrets from someone who has done it before is looking at medical conditions. One user revealed they searched for "mouth larva" whilst trying to look at "moth larva" and it didn't end well. They shared: "I couldn't close that window quick enough."
Another search that brings up some pretty wincing results is 'degloving'. For those not familiar, degloving means "a traumatic injury that results in the top layers of skin and tissue being torn away from the underlying muscle, connective tissue or bone." So, in a word - GROSS.
Now, looking that up on Google is obviously going to yield some pretty eye-watering results, as one reddit user revealed. They said: "A friend of mine worked at a summer camp. He was in charge of, among other things, the climbing wall. One of the rules was no jewelry, and a lot of girls of a certain age didn't listen. Before he let them on the wall, he'd check to make sure they were actually ready, and a lot of times he'd spot a ring on their hand.
"If they didn't listen the second time he told them to take off any jewelry he'd ask if they knew what degloving was, which inevitably they did not. And he would then whip out his phone and show them a picture of a hand with a degloved ring finger. Suddenly, they'd get a lot more cooperative."
Another warning from reddit was simply to never Google symptoms, as one user wrote: "Any symptoms you're having."
Another medical warning included not searching for 'Calculus Bridge". While it might sound like something that belongs in a maths or physics classroom, it definitely doesn't.
For anyone with an upcoming trip to the dentist this would particularly turn the stomach as in fact Calculus Bridge is tooth plaque.
Or more specifically, it's "an extensive matrix of calculus that extends across several tooth surfaces and often a calculus bridge is associated with gingival recession and periodontal disease".
So if your first thought when someone mentions something you don't know is to Google it, you might want to pause and think before you pop it into the search engine. Or at least stay off the image results.
