Someone said to me today that balloons are like a plastic bag of someone's breath...

I'd never thought of it like that before and to be honest it made me feel a bit nauseous!

Do you have anymore examples of things that are actually really fucking weird when you think about it?

Licking an envelope - urgh the germs.
Ditto opening an envelope and running your finger over someone's dried spit.

Sea lions. Most sea creatures.
I dislike weird looking fish!

Living in a home and having a four legged furry thing walk in and about it. You feed it, play with it, stroke it, don't speak the same language but happily enjoy its company does its thing and you do yours until you both decide you want to play, walk, stroke or whatever.

Trees. Huge fucking plants.

Friendships. You just pick another human and hang out with them.

Eyes. Especially the bits in the middle which are see through.

The universe.

I took my kids to a planetarium recently and felt really weird about how small we are!

How we think seahorses are so fab for carrying the babies!

Drinking milk / eating meat etc.

Drinking alcohol. It's literally a bunch of people standing around poisoning themselves for a few hours of a jolly.

Watching a film in silence with 200 strangers.

Who decided to just press their lips against someone else's?

Hotels. A building where hundreds of people just sleep.

Going to a club and dancing.

Duck billed platypus. Any creature that raises it's young in a pouch.
The inability of humans to give birth easily, quickly and not too painfully, real design fault there.

Now I can understand the thinking behind drinking milk- humans are mammals, cows are mammals, I guess it’s therefore not a stretch to go “I bet that whatever cows produce when they lactate would be drinkable too you know”. But what I cannot get my head around is who on this sodding planet would watch an egg come out of a chicken and think “I’m gonna eat that. Bet it’s well tasty”?!

Kissing is another thing that baffles me. “I like this human therefore I shall smush my face into theirs and swap saliva”
