Top Ten Things That Are Not for the Faint of Heart

There are many things out there that are too tough and even downright scary for those who are faint of heart.

The Top Ten

Pregnancy

Pregnancy is the moment a baby develops inside a female, who then becomes a mother. It's also the top thing here that isn't suitable for the faint of heart as while it varies from woman to woman, in many cases there's incomprehensible & relentless suffering that's indescribable & full of pain that lasts for 9 months (0.75 years). Along with that are injuries that keep on building & don't go away til the end, at childbirth. Plus hunger & thirst is increased & blood pressure's diluted, leading to chance of fainting spells & blackouts. Plus body temperature is increased & so is sweat rate & likelihood of dehydration, making one have to drink much more than usual & many are more tired than ever & want to sleep but have to keep waking up to go to the restrooms. Yet headaches & body aches aside, many uncontrollable cramps or contractions occur & keep on building & speeding up as time goes on til the birth. Heartburn & the heart in your throat feeling (like on a roller coaster but stronger) ...more

Growing a human( sometimes more than 1) for 9 months and pushing them out is hardcore

To all of you mothers out there, respect!

Space Travel

Elon Musk is planning to send people to Mars in a few years. That may sound like a fantasy, plus it takes logical use of resources and time involved to construct a rocket with astronauts. The traveling space crew will stay seated in the spaceship for not just weeks, months cramped inside. Once the crew members of SpaceX land on Mars, they will make their first footsteps on the surface. Later, the astronauts will take pictures, collect rock samples, and return safely on the ship returning back to Earth. Amazing, right?

Space travel is a dream many have, but very few have ever done it. Truth to be told, it’s NOT as fun or easy as you think. Space travel involves lots of unrelenting studying & even relentless training & many have failed to qualify as astronauts. Space travel has been a way for people to explore places outside Earth, including the Moon (which the 1st people landed on 50 years ago). It involves rocket science, which is extremely hard for the most part, & the actual mission is even harder. Yet there are simulators to simulate the space travel experience & the real thing is no joke either. Rockets put severe stress on your body during launch & reentry & in space, while 0 g weightlessness seems fun to some, there’s no pressure so you can’t swim like you do in a pool & over time, the 0 g weakens the bones, tissue & organs, leading to atrophy. Plus joint stiffness occurs as well due to 0g related inadequate movement & many come back to Earth in bad shape. Plus in space, you have to be ...more

Jobs

You though school was hard in your life? Well there are some jobs that’ll put even school to shame. Jobs such as factory work, construction work & even mail delivery are physically & mentally stressful & being done every day makes them put a major toll on your health & the mental peer pressure only adds to them. Plus the anticipation of such jobs drives anxiety high. If you’re doing a job for making the money you want for things, then it may be worth all the hassle, but if you can’t take your job, just remember such jobs aren’t suitable for the faint of heart.

Thrill Rides

There are even signs at the entrances saying nobody with heart problems, high blood pressure, back and neck problems, or pregnant women should ride. It may cause severe physical harm or death if you ride and you have either of those health issues.

Yup, therefore nobody should go on those rides if they have any of those conditions. They're designed to give the illusion of impending doom.

Thrill rides are a staple in amusement/theme parks. Thrill is defined by them as an uncontrollable sense of fear & panic that triggers adrenaline, usually caused by a lack of control in such environments. Roller coasters are the most famous examples of thrill rides. They take you up extreme heights in open vehicles & you go down multiple drops & sometimes go through inversions & loops, yet each movement messes with your stomach & heart, so you can’t go on them if you have any weakness or heart problems. Plus they raise your heart rate & blood pressure with anticipation & the actual experience, so they aren’t good for heart problems or high blood pressure either. Plus they put fluctuating g-forces on the body, & that along with the motion makes them bad for people prone to motion sickness, so those people are prohibited from riding as well. They have restraints, making them bad for people with claustrophobia & also trigger such anxiety. They are not for the faint of heart for any ...more

I never got the courage to ride these. I have ridden the Mummy roller coaster, but that was ‘cause I was forced to. I was even closing my eyes! Lol

Horror Movies

Horror movies may be classic, but they’re made for a reason. There’s suspense & even scary scenery & jump scares. At home they may seem simple, but at a movie theater, they’re a whole different experience. Movie theaters give people the real experience of watching horror movies. They’re known to give guests a thrill & often haunt dreams afterwards.

Some are really disturbing to watch for me and I'm not the kind of guy who is easily disgusted or scared by gore.

Athletics

Actually, I run track and field as a distance runner! (not super long distance, just 800m, 1500m, and 3000m) I LOVE this sport! I just went to the Greensboro, NC AAU Junior Olympics for track and field, actually, and it was one of the best weeks of my life. Track should never be EASY for you...if it is, you're not trying hard enough. It needs to be challenging but fun, a healthy balance, and you do also need plenty of rest time. You need more on time than off, but still...you can't work hard if you don't rest easy. You have to be on a good team with great people and coaches that really push you. I personally LOVE my track team. I think the experiences are really what make track, well, track! It's just amazing.

It's challenging in also that it involves things the body wasn't built for, yet there's a thing called endurance & helps us know how to push limits while surviving. It's been done many times. Yet some have run and swam hundreds to THOUSANDS of miles to show off their skills (& sometimes raise awareness). Definitely no easy work & not for the faint of heart. Yet that even takes will & courage.

Athletics involve work that puts major physical stress on the body & many even sweat like crazy, increasing the risk of dehydration (remember always stay hydrated) & develop injuries that build up with time & become painful & torture. And as such work becomes repetitive, the toll it takes is usually huge & ever remembering. Things like marathons & even ultra ones pack an almighty punch & get one out of breath & their heart crazy as that’s the organ that’s most under such physical stress, making them bad for people with heart conditions. All of that proves this isn’t for the faint of heart.

I have no experience with pregnancy, space travel, and rocket launches, but I believe the Athletics (track) are 1,000 times harder than thrill rides. Thrill rides can be scary for a few seconds and then fun, but the Athletics require years of hard work, consisting of long, extremely tough workouts followed by even harder races.

I really don't wanna fall over on the track

Rocket Launch Experiences

Rockets are known to be so powerful that they overwhelm everything even miles away. Some rockets do such that & their powerful flames can burn your eyes from miles away (just like staring directly at the Sun unprotected) & the noise & vibrations are indescribable & are even felt more than heard, causing not only severe ear pain & loss, but also violent vibrations that can get your heart out of your chest or even feel like a heart attack & rattle your bones & even teeth from miles away. People who have been a few miles from such rockets said there are no words to describe the power & experience, proving it’s all more than overwhelming & thrilling. Heck people even compared them to violent wars & when rockets land (which SpaceX just achieved in the last couple years) sonic booms take place, which are likened to air strikes & nearly give people heart attacks & far surpass even the biggest firework displays you’ll ever witness & all of this becomes part of your memories & haunts them ...more

Different Opinions

Imagine unironically voting for this item

Oh great, disney1994 found this list

Porn

I am a young teen girl who has watched porn, and believe me, it is harder than you think!

Porn is not good for anybody period & shouldn't be done.

It will corrupt you.

Nothing wrong with porn, it is when porn controls you that it becomes bad, but that is true of a lot of things

College

College involves 4 yto 6 ears of hard time-consuming work & studies & some exams can lead to all-nighters, which are crazy & whether it’s peer or self pressure, it has an impact on your daily life & health. College though helps you earn degrees & gain knowledge & that’s after 4 to 6 years of hard work. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart.

The Contenders

Driving

Driving is known to be a major trigger for anxiety in many people. The thought & fear of getting into an accident or something tamer lime failing the driving test is a way to get all nervous & scared of the unknown. The fear of death springs into mind & that’s an unknown that triggers anxiety towards lots of people. Driving also puts stress on the feet over time. Driving is certainly not for the faint of heart (or feet).

Autism

Yes as I am Autistic

I might have Asperger's.

Fandoms

That depends of what fandom you're involved in.

You really don't know what you're getting into

Enjoy what you enjoy, fandoms can get toxic fast, especially if the fandom is for something extremely popular

Conventions

I hate the smelly weeaboos and bronies at conventions. They ruin everything for me. One time my dumb friend dragged me to this anime convention thingie, and within five minutes of arriving I saw some fat, hairy, smelly, greasy dude wearing worn down flip flops, ill fitting shorts, and a graphic t-shirt that looked like it hadn't been washed in decades. He also dragged his body pillow thing around with him and I almost threw up. And also I forgot to mention, this guy I described is actually my stupid friend. I hate that loser so much.

Conventions are one of those things many think looks like fun. A world of all stuff to enjoy & get together to celebrate. While that stuff does happen, they’re MORE than that. They’re actually more about being in crowded & stressful environments where you’re crammed in with a bunch of people, making them nightmares for claustrophobics. Not to mention they involve a series of extremely long lines & wait times to convention centers & other things within them are super long & often off the charts & especially the combination of queues will put severe physical & mental stress on everyone there. Like Disneyland, but worse, imagine wanting to do all the fun things & even go to the restrooms & you have to wait many hours for either of those things. Yet unlike Disneyland where you FastPass attractions, there’s no FastPass for these or anything in them. Many even unfortunately miss out on many things due to long wait times & being in crowds, it’s hard to control one’s self & social ...more

The Dark Web
Relationships

I don't know if I'm ready to be in a relationship. It really scares me. I want to find love, have a family and share the rest of my life with the woman I love, but I just don't want to mess up or have my heart broken by the one I love.

Seriously. They have struggles & sacrifices, & involve doing things for others out of love. Sometimes they let others go on thrill rides & sometimes scary movies & definitely tough challenges. It’s not for the faint of heart.

Very good list. This makes lots of sense.

One of the hardest things to do is to fully let someone in to your life and put full trust in that person to be able to build a family with them

TheTopTens TheTopTens is a website created in 2005, which is used to write top ten lists, where anyone can vote, comment, and write posts about the lists.

I'm a big boy, I don't get harassed by trolls. I show up to all the trolls' houses, chop their heads off, and drink their blood for yummy protein and you should too!

Only if you're afraid of getting trolled or harassed, which happens on every commenting site. Our responsibilities whether or not to troll.

Trolls aren’t a big deal. It depends on the way they can troll and if it’s harmless or not.

Guns

Well we were supposed to use guns for defense, & they are powerful. Using black powder for energy to release bullets. The sound of a gunshot is loud & startling & a bullet hits you fast enough to cause an excruciating & nasty wound. The worst part though is nowadays people are using them to kill each other for no reason. Hate & terrorism have impacted our world & scared many lives, both normal & famous, & took away lives as well.

Guns were for defense in the Wild West era.

Bungee Jumping

I accomplished my first 300 metre bungee jump a couple of months ago. I just wanted to see if I could push myself to do something I was so scared of trying. I did it! I found it a very scary, but incredible experience. Well worth it. I would definitely do it again. And again.

Basically that goes with thrill rides, except it’s done on one’s own rather than getting tickets to ride on a vehicle. The thrill can be extreme, yet involves daring heights & it’s certainly not for the faint of heart.

Vaccines

I do not have autism you ignorant pig.

Vaccines go with doctors’ appointments, which I put on the list. Yet I mentioned them on that item as well.

Vaccines cause autism

Concerts

Concerts involve lots of planning & expensive tickets + preparation for loud music & crowd noises. Music can be catchy & keep one wanting to experience it, but loud sounds are also known to be painful & dangerous. It’s been known that OSHA has laws on noise levels & that concerts are some of the things that put people at risk of hearing loss, as they approach high dB levels (typically 100-114 dB) & hearing loss is often permanent like a tattoo & once you lose your hearing enough, you can’t get it back. Concerts are like drugs & smoking, they’re addicting after time, but pose hazards & dangers that sneak up even when you don’t realize them. If you’re concerned about safety, then you’ll know they definitely aren’t for the faint of such heart.

Adolf trumpler

Hitler didn't murder millions either. His soldiers did on his orders (pretty much same thing though)

Religion

Depends, but speaking to the lord is hard but the thing we should do. We can't live a good life without God or Jesus.

I actually can't since God can mean anything, from beauty, the Universe, the energy within us all, or just the emotions we feel, so to provide an example I'd need a definition of God.
If you embrace your emotions and fully let them out your being spiritual, to feel the energy of those around you you are being spiritual, to stop and enjoy the beauty around you is being spiritual. Meditation is spirituality, yoga is spirituality.
All spirituality is really is getting out of your head, to get to state that you don't have to worry about your thoughts

You have to grind as a Christian. It gets hard and very challenging. Definitely not for the faint of heart.

What is even harder is being none religious in a heavily religious area or being apart of the wrong religion in those areas definitely not for the faint of heart

Exploitation Films

Films that employ very mature themes that isn't safe to talk about within our society, sometimes involves shocking images, or extremely gory realistic looking bodies.
The section of horror movies that most are afraid to explore, though not exclusive to the horror genre, Passion of the Christ is an excellent example of an exploitative film that isn't a horror movie

Exploiting things like scary sights such as dead bodies is just downright disturbing & creepy. This kinda ties in with horror movies.

These are the movies made just to shock the audience, deals with extreme themes like pedophilia, rape, serial killing with ultra gory graphic images, torture, taboo fetishes, war crimes, human experimentation, etc
