    I have a hard time watching those commercials with cancer ward toddlers or mange-riddled puppies quivering in the frigid cold --- not because I can't handle the subject matter or the visuals, but because they're used so shamelessly for ads for various "humanitarian" charities. It's just exploitive and sick.

    Google them first, like on the Better Business Bureau site.

    I'm okay with most things and I don't have a problem with watching surgery, blood or other bodily things.

    If I know things such as crashes, violence etc. are not real and are just being acted then I can watch. Although I find that acted drownings make me feel panicky and along with the actor I start to feel like I cant breath either.

    I do turn away if an animal is being chased and the inevitable happens. I always turn away when a snake appears or if maggots are feasting on something.

    I would've turned away whilst watching BIG BROTHER if I'd known or been warned that someone was going to eat (sorry about this) snot on TV, that I found repulsive.

    There used to be a TV show about people doing crazy things for 100 euro.
    The participants were random people walking in the streets, shopping or not, and if they agreed to whatever it was that had to be done they would have to convince other unsuspecting bystanders to assist them in the assignment. "May I tattoo your whole body with a black marker"/"May I come in and smash all your light bulbs?"
    They only had 30 minutes or so to complete the task so it was also kind of race.

    Anyway, I'll never forget the chocolate milk task.
    Someone had to find 5 or 6 other people to pass the milk from mouth to mouth without spilling anything - and they had to do it 4 times. Maybe 5!
    The thing is, if you do it once, no matter how gross it is, you want to win the task - nobody wants to suffer for nothing. They did it, and they won the money.
    But the suffering! They tried so hard not to vomit.
    I can't think of it without bursting into laughter.

    "Someone getting their throat slashed"

    I can watch this (if it happens in a movie), but not without putting a hand on my own throat to "protect" it.
    I guess this is a common reaction?

    I still cover my face and peek through my fingers --- not during horror movies, as I did when I was a kid, but when somebody does or says something really embarrassing on TV.

    You mean when NuCristal II exorcised the evil spirits that killed NuAlexis' plants?
    Although it could be based on your Krystle's Psychic Powers thread.

    The first culprit was Mo from BB9. If you have a very strong stomach and want to know more details, you can read about it here

    The other more unexpected culprit and without warning was Jack from BB16. Somewhere on the internet I have seen a gif of the crime and (thankfully) I cannot find it :lol:

    Oh I thought of another. Nose picking - especially by this man. I can't even look at him to this day. He picked his nose (and ate it) on Big Brother. For those who don't know him, he's a racing pundit named John McCririck. The side burns - he just turns me. He has lost an awful lot of weight recently though and is a shadow of his former self.

    I don't believe I'm claustrophobic, but I always struggle with scenes like this. The thought of getting stuck and then dying, almost been buried alive.
