We seek perfection in this world, but it doesn’t exist, right?
Human brains have a tendency to want everything to be “just right.” When it doesn’t go as planned, it starts irritating us. It works the same way with our eyes, there are some things that we find aesthetically pleasing. These aesthetically pleasing sights are usually in symmetry. When they aren’t in symmetry, they tend to tick us off a little. I’m not the kind of person to say “Oh, I’m so OCD” because the actual mental illness is not a joke, but boy does it bother me when things are out of order or just “not right.”
American scientist Alan Lightman explains that the human brain likes to see things that are symmetrical. “The reason must be partly psychological,” he says. “Symmetry represents order, and we crave order in this strange universe.” It is a weird thing, craving order and symmetry, but it is what it is. And when we don’t get it, we get really frustrated. So today, we are here to frustrate the heck out of you and make you cringe with really uncomfortable pictures. If you have actual OCD, please do not torture yourself. However, this will be torture for everyone, trust me. Scroll down below and enjoy the cringe:
“This Strawberry’s Seeds Started Sprouting While It Was Still On The Plant”
Really? This was done deliberately!
Out of focus sliced ham, but it isn’t out of focus. Or is it?
Can the stovetop move a bit to the right, please?
You can’t even hang artwork right?
Hate it when erasers betray you like this.
Dinner is ruined now.
“This Guy’s Laptop On My Flight”
Well, that sucks.
“This Grass Grew Right Through My Aloe”
“I Took A Ride In A Triangular Elevator Today”
“This Door In North London Makes Me Hideously Uncomfortable”
“Been Living Here For 5 Years, Only Noticed Today…Time To Move”
Why are people like this?
“I Found A Pool Above The Sidewalk Today”
“At My Friend’s Apartment. I Think It Bothers Me More That This Doesn’t Bother Her”
“My Tomato Sprouted”
If these haven’t weirded you out already, I don’t know what will. Just looking at these images makes me clench my fists and grit my teeth. I mean, WHY? Is the universe messing with us on purpose? It is ridiculous how things as simple as these can get on our nerves. Humans are weird, but these images are weirder. If you haven’t had enough already, scroll down below for more:
That really isn’t a good colour pattern for a bathroom.
Guess who’s windows will be breaking soon?

“This Toilet Stall Has An Elevator Inside”

Please, untangle them. This is upsetting me.
“My Aunt’s Hand Soap Is Way Too Literal And Makes Me Uncomfortable”

Won’t it fall?
Just burn them.
This is getting out of hand, or sink in this case.
“Had A Friendsgiving Last Night. I Forgot I’m Friends With Wild Animals”
Make it stop.
“My Moms Copy Of Fifty Shades Of Grey. I Dare Not Look At What Those Bookmarks Represent”
It has glass items too! Stop it!
I give up.
“My Son’s Toothpaste, Ugh”
I don’t think that is right…
