Just because somethings in life qualify as painless experiences, it doesn’t automatically mean that they’re welcome experiences that you would like to add to your check list of things-I’ve-gone-through. There are plenty of things that don’t really hurt, but you still would do well to avoid them.
This begs the question, what are those things? Off the top of your head it can be rather hard to conceive of such an experience. They’re not painful, but they’re for sure uncomfortable. Well, we’ve gathered an entire list of such experiences, so to get you started, how about nausea? That doesn’t hurt in the traditional sense, but it’s still not really a very welcome experience. Then we have the classic nails-on-chalkboard set of experiences, embarrassment (which can be triggered by numerous things), and even far more benign things like hypnic jerks (that moment when you’re about to fall asleep but then you all of a sudden feel like you’re falling). All of these are things that don’t really hurt, but they definitely aren’t what you would consider fun. At any rate, we’ve got a lot more of these coming your way. Here are 25 Painless Experiences That Are Nonetheless Extremely Uncomfortable.

Your hand "waking up"
All those needles…
