15 things to not look up on Google
1. Death Clock
Unless you want your blood pressure to fly off the roof, avoid searching for this on Google because it will provide you with a death date prediction. And that can have you looking over your shoulders or attributing every migraine you get to this prediction.
For basketball fans, if you ever want to look up Fournier make sure to include his first name (Evan) otherwise, can result in graphic images related to a disease called “fournier gangrene”. Fournier’s gangrene (FG) is a fulminant form of infective necrotizing fasciitis of the perineal, genital, or perianal regions, which commonly affects men, but can also occur in women and children.
3. Calculus Bridge
This isn’t some complicated math formula we are all familiar with, in fact, it is quite the opposite. I will advise you never to search for this for the sake of your sanity unless you are okay with graphic images that will leave you traumatized for days.
4. Your Symptoms
Never look up your symptoms, avoid searching for your symptoms when you are feeling sick because self-diagnosing can lead to severe hypochondria and anxiety which is often more disastrous than the sickness itself.
5. Ring Avulsions/Degloving
When you search for terms like “Ring Avulsions” or “Degloving” on Google, you may encounter search results that include medical information, images, and resources related to these conditions. A ring avulsion refers to a serious injury that occurs when a ring gets caught on an object and forcibly pulls on the finger, often resulting in the skin and soft tissues being torn away from the finger. while degloving describes an injury where the skin and underlying tissue are forcefully detached or torn away from the underlying structures, such as bones or muscles.
6. How to make Meth or Bomb
Unless you want National Security Agencies to knock down your door, never search for this on Google. This will put you on a list you have no business being on just because of curiosity.
7. Your full name and email
Unless you want to be left feeling paranoid, avoid searching for your full name and email, because you might just be shocked to find out what you are linked to.
8. Tub Girl
In the 1990s, an unusual website called Rotton.com emerged, presenting a collection of unsettling videos. One notable illustration from that era is Tub Girl, which portrays a Japanese woman seated unclothed in a bathtub. In the image, an orange liquid is seen spurting from her buttocks and onto her face. It is best to avoid this video for the sake of your sanity.
9. Two Girls, One Cup
The video was initially uploaded on January 6, 2007. If you choose to access this content, you will witness two individuals engaging in disturbing acts involving vomit and feces.
10. Mouth Larva
Oral myiasis is an unpleasant condition caused by the larvae of certain dipteran flies. It is commonly found in underdeveloped nations but can be easily treated. It is advised to refrain from searching for these terms on Google, as it may lead to witnessing actual maggots squirming inside someone’s mouth
11. Kids in a Sandbox
The video titled ‘Kids in a Sandbox’ depicts a woman initially providing manual stimulation to a man, which appears to be ordinary. However, the situation takes an unexpected turn as the woman proceeds to use a significant-sized vibrator and forcefully inserts it into the man’s penis.
12. Four Girls Finger Painting
The video titled “Four Girls Finger Painting” portrays four women engaging in the act of painting themselves and each other using their own feces. Toward the end, they also introduce vomit into the scene.
When you search for “Goatse,” you may come across an image depicting a man stretching his rectum open with both hands, revealing the interior. This image initially shared online as “happy.jpg,” has become the subject of numerous memes over the years.

In the early 2000s, a video called “Eel Girl” gained attention. It depicted a woman using a funnel to insert an eel into another woman’s rectum, followed by the eel exiting and the woman appearing to “consume” it.
15. Mr. Hands
Kenneth Pinyan, a former Boeing engineer who went by the nickname Mr. Hands, gained notoriety for recording himself engaging in repeated sexual acts with a horse. Tragically, during one such encounter, Pinyan suffered severe injuries that ultimately led to his death.
Disturbingly, Pinyan was not the only person involved in this troubling fetish. A group of individuals with similar inclinations would gather to document their sexual encounters with animals.
