40 Pictures That Made Us Slightly Uncomfortable Just By Looking At Them

According to the American scientist Alan Lightman, human brains actually strive to see things symmetrically. “The reason must be partly psychological,” he says. “Symmetry represents order, and we crave order in this strange universe.” The wings on a butterfly. The vaulted ceiling of a cathedral. They all sound a little too good, right? But, broken patterns or things that don’t line up trigger irritation points in our minds. Scroll on to see our compiled list of photos that are so uncomfortable you won’t reach the end. We bet you’ll mutter “aaarrgh” at every one of them. However, if you have a severe case of OCD, proceed at your own risk because this post can make not so perfectionist among us quite irritated. Have fun wink.
