1/29. I sometimes think about what my co workers or boss look like when they are having sex. What kind of faces they make, noises, even freaky moves. I get really paranoid that people can read my thought so I try to sanitize them with random facts and trivia.


2/29. I was at my mothers funeral, and it was quite a sad scene. My father had probably taken her death the hardest out of any of us in the family. When her casket was being lowered, I actually imagined her jumping out as a flesh-eating zombie. Now I cant get the image out of my head.

3/29. When driving, I regularly get these intrusive thoughts of how easy it would be to drive right into oncoming traffic. Weird stuff.


4/29. A lot of time when I'm by myself, I start thinking of all the times I've messed up, and even though I know that I'm probably the only person that remembers those mistakes, I still feel ashamed.


5/29. I constantly wonder about the sex lives of other couples around me. How much do they do it? Are they kinky or super vanilla? Have they ever tried anal? Seriously, I can't be the only one who thinks about the sex lives of my friends. They don't share so I have to wonder!

6/29. I am a teacher in high school....

my god, I'm ashamed a lot of times.


7/29. "Maybe if I kill myself, I won't have to turn in this essay." WTF brain?


8/29. Things that would be physically really easy to do, but you "never" would. Like a flick of the wheel to drive into oncoming traffic, stepping out in front of a bus, or giving someone that extra push when they're looking over a high place. If I think about it long enough, its like I have to make a conscious effort not to turn the wheel. Freaks me out.


9/29. Sometimes when I'm talking to someone face to face I feel like punching them in the face for no particular reason. Doesn't matter if it's a kid, an old person or whatever.


10/29. "How far would a baby travel if i kicked him/her my absolute hardest?"


11/29. I wanna grab that cops gun so bad!!!!!


12/29. I had to baby sit a friends 6 month old baby for 2 hours so they could go do something...

I was carrying him from one room to the other and stepped through a door and had the thought "Can you imagine if you'd just smashed his head into the door frame then, that would have been awful".

I have no idea where it came from.


13/29. When riding my bike around campus I get the urge to just slap people's butts as I ride past. Not just one gender. Anyone. It would be so easy for me to just ride off before they even knew what happened/what to do.


14/29. I always get intense urges to kiss coworkers, managers, etc. Just in the middle of a conversation or meeting or something.


15/29. Whenever I'm with a group of people I always wonder which one of us is going to die first. If I ask it out loud some people get really offended.


16/29. I sometimes picture myself projectile vomiting in the middle of a conversation and then playing out how it would go after.


17/29. Sometimes when I'm talking to a girl, the thought just pops into my head to spontaneously start making out with her.

18/29. If I had a sword I imagine how many people I can take out before I die. Not entirely psychotic, I just want to be Aragorn.


19/29. 'If I were a girl I would totally wear that'.


20/29. When my dad died I thought it would be cool to have him taxadermied and made into a butleresque statue to put my keys and wallet in his hands when I walked into my house.


21/29. My mother in law is pretty damned attractive. She's got nice big fake boobs. I like to stare at them and I think about it far too often.


22/29. Start doing cartwheels and sh*t in the middle of important business meetings.


23/29. I think about what would be the best way to murder someone, tailored specifically to them...

My roommate: smother him while he's passed out drunk.

My boyfriend: Nick his femoral artery and watch him bleed out.

Boyfriend's little brother: give him bad E.

My boss: poison his vodka.

The list goes on.

Disclaimer: in not really going to murder them. Too hard to hide the bodies.


24/29. I get this when watching live stage. "You know, nobody could stop me in time if I just walked down the aisle, climbed up on stage and just suckerpunched the shit out of Hamlet."

I am so not a violent person, either.


25/29. standing on a cliff

Man, it would be so easy to jump, 20 years down the drain because of one decision. They are horrifyingly true.

I'm not suicidal either, I am a really happy guy.


26/29. Every single time someone says to me "Me and my gf/bf are trying for a baby" or "I'm expecting my first child!" BAM. Instantly imagining them having sex.

27/29. I've pictured way too many girls pooping. not in a weird sexual way, but more of an "I know you do that" way.


28/29. Sometimes, when I'm cleaning up the kitchen with my family, I'll pick up a knife to dry, and immediately an image of me just running someone through with the knife will pop into my head. I don't want to stab a family member, but sometimes, when I have the tools at hand, I can't help thinking about how easy it would be to do so.

I also have to distract myself when I'm chopping stuff, otherwise I'll just think about how easily I could slice my own fingers off the whole time. Same thing there. I'd really prefer to keep all my fingers, I just get mesmerized by the fact that I could chop them off.


29/29. A friend of mine once asked me "Is it weird that whenever I see a hot girl, the first thing I think about is how they would look dead?" I told him "yes."



We are told that, if you're not confident, you should just "fake it til you make it."

This is great--in theory. In practice, sometimes "faking it" can have extremely real and terrible consequences, which these people found out the hardest of hard ways.
