25 Disturbingly Unbelievable Things That Might Keep You Up At Night

If you already have trouble sleeping, then this list is probably not for you (especially not number one). Ok, with that out of the way, don’t say we didn’t warn you. For those of you left, while some of these things are quite disturbing, others are just downright silly. Have you ever heard of goats being prosecuted for armed robbery? Or how about squirrels? Apparently prosecuting animals is still a thing in some parts of the world. There are also some creepy things. Did you know dead people get goosebumps? Or that you have taste receptors in your anus? Well, its true, even though we’re not exactly sure what the utility of such taste receptors could be, they’re there. Those weren’t that bad right? You probably still think you can sleep. Well, just keep reading. Actually, read through the whole list and then decide. We know that you’re not scared of the dark, but seriously that might change in a few minutes. Even if it doesn’t though, try falling asleep imaging a turtle breathing through its butt. Because that’s how some turtles breathe. We wish we were lying, and we’re terribly sorry that you stumbled across this list, but these are 25 Disturbingly Unbelievable Things That Might Keep You Up At Night.
