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 Things That Are Not for the Faint of Heart

1 Pregnancy

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

Poopy diaper

To all of you mothers out there, respect! - RogerMcBaloney

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 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 & bodyaches 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) from acid reflex takes place. Near the ...more - SamanthaRosie

2 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?

The zero gravity system sounds cool, but it's really dangerous - BorisRule

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 - SamanthaRosie

3 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. - SamanthaRosie

4 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. - JoeBoi

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. - SamanthaRosie

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 - Misfire

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 - SamanthaRosie

5 Horror Movies

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

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. - SamanthaRosie

6 Athletics

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.

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 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. - SamanthaRosie

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. - SamanthaRosie

I really don't wanna fall over on the track

7 Porn

Nothing wrong with porn, it is when porn controls you that it becomes bad, but that is true of a lot of things - germshep24

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. - SamanthaRosie

It will corrupt you.

8 Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, more.

Adolf trumpler

Inaccurate comparison. Trump didn't murder millions of people. - BlueTelegraph

What is he even doing on this list? - RogerMcBaloney


9 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. - SamanthaRosie

10 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 - SamanthaRosie

The Contenders

11 Fandoms

Enjoy what you enjoy, fandoms can get toxic fast, especially if the fandom is for something extremely popular - germshep24

You really don't know what you're getting into - Cassiopeiablack417

Let's All Point Fingers to the Drumroll... Qubo Wiki. - Rainbowkid38

12 Mother 2

One thing: Giygas - Rainbowkid38

13 Google Google is an American multinational technology company specializing in Internet-related services and products. These include online advertising technologies, search, cloud computing, and software.

The world's largest censorship/spyware platform. Definitely not for the faint of heart. - shadomatrix

Google tracks your data & locations, causing panic & making you feel unsafe. Switch to Searx instead. - SamanthaRosie

14 Capitalism

I have more member score than you

Yes Capitalism can be amazing or heartbreaking. - 2storm

15 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). - SamanthaRosie

16 North Korea The Democratic People's Republic of Korea, also known as North Korea, is a country in Eastern Asia. Its capital is Pyongyang. It is currently ruled by the dictator Kim Jong-Un, after inheriting the title from his father, Kim Jong-Il, who in turn inherited it from his father, Kim Il-Sung. more.

Violence takes place there, making it a war zone. - SamanthaRosie

17 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. - RogerMcBaloney

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 - germshep24

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. - SamanthaRosie

Very good list. This makes lots of sense. - Userguy44

18 Different Opinions

I can't stand them! They're the #1 cause of my depression and misery. They've ruined my life SO many times! In fact, they ruin life for EVERYONE! I've NEVER understood why everyone thinks they're good. Saying different opinions make the world go around is like saying that cancer creates life, it's not only not true, it's THE OPPOSITE of the truth! - Disney1994

I'm sorry you feel that way, but different opinions actually does help our society, it helps keep us from being closed minded and helps you get to the truth, it is when someone aggressively pushes a different view on you in which it can get toxic.
Don't get me wrong there are opinions that can be harmful like vaccines are bad, or the belief that one race is better than another
Ignorance is bless (having one opinion), but knowledge is power (understanding the differing views to get a better understanding of the truth)
And it is nothing like saying cancer creates life - germshep24

Oh great, disney1994 found this list

Imagine unironically voting for this item - Leafeon

19 5 Year Olds

They can be picky, though not as much as 2 or 3 year olds. - SamanthaRosie

20 Watching/Seeing Major Surgery

Gruesome & graphic, yet real nurses do it so they witness in full hand. - SamanthaRosie

21 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!

Trolls aren’t a big deal. It depends on the way they can troll and if it’s harmless or not. - Userguy44

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

22 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 - SamanthaRosie

23 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. - SamanthaRosie

Guns were for defense in the Wild West era.

24 Autism

Yes as I am Autistic

I might have Asperger's.

25 The Dark Web
26 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. - SamanthaRosie

27 Vaccines

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

I do not have autism you ignorant pig.

Vaccines cause autism

28 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. - SamanthaRosie

29 Fireworks

Fireworks are a decorative way of celebrating & are often done on New Year's Eve/Day & 4th of July. But they're known to be scary toward people with phonophobia (fear of sounds) & pets. They are usually viewed from a distance for safety usually to prevent getting burned & stuff, but they earned their reputation. The grand finales are grand for a reason & are always done at the end. They pack quite a punch. If you've ever been to a show, you'll get the idea. - SamanthaRosie

30 Religion

You have to grind as a Christian. It gets hard and very challenging. Definitely not for the faint of heart. - 2storm

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 - germshep24

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. - SamanthaRosie

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 - germshep24

Visitor leave 2storm alone

31 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 - germshep24

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

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 - germshep24

32 Doki Doki Literature Club!



33 New Year's Eve Parties

New Year's Eve is the last day of the year & it's celebrated with parties. Places like Vegas or Times Square have crowds of millions of people standing in one spot from morning til midnight waiting for the countdown. At those places you're spending much of your day standing on your feet & unable to use the restrooms while waiting for the countdown & it's all relentless torture for 1/2 to 2/3 of your whole day though anticipation of the new year is in high gear at the same time. Plus the weather on New Year's Eve is usually very cold & can go down the 20s or even 10s or lower in Fahrenheit, causing hypothermia on guests. Plus being in crowds makes them bad for people with claustrophobia as there's so much space taken up by the people. Other big places include London England, Sydney Australia & Moscow Russia. The new year is a special time & beginning of the year, but celebrating it in big places is not for the faint of heart. - SamanthaRosie

If your celebrating on Time Square then it definitely isn't for the faint of heart, but most parties are indoors and is usually a nighttime event, so it is no worse than going to the club and partying
Though there can be some anxiety in wanting to have a person to kiss to start your new year - germshep24

Times Square, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Moscow, Sydney, you name it. Those are all big places. They're the real deals. - SamanthaRosie

34 Hospitals

Hospital appointments are places where appointments like surgery take place. They're often known for giving people fear. Yet the most famous thing done there is surgery. The effects of surgery before, during & afterwards come quite a surprise. The 1st is fasting for much of your day, risking dehydration, famine & exhaustion. Anesthetics involve either drinking or injections, both of which are nasty surprises. Then the operation takes place. The aftermath can also be quite intense & not everyone is excited for surgery. - SamanthaRosie

35 Dentist Appointments

Dentist appointments are known to be feared by many children, especially if they're getting their teeth replaced, getting crowns, or braces. The procedures & results can be somewhat intense & nasty & not everyone is looking forward to them. The fear of the unknown is generally the scariest part though as anticipation of that can be wild & make this not suitable for the faint of heart. - SamanthaRosie

I’m scared of possible future wisdom teeth surgery

36 Appendicitis
37 Love

Love isn't always easy. There's things & conflicts in life & decisions. Marriage is only part of it. Now love involves doing everything for people. - SamanthaRosie

38 Fidget Spinners

Guys, are you really ruin the list?! - BorisRule

They kill people

People don’t know what they’re getting into when using these. - SamanthaRosie

39 Diapers

You think baby changing is bad? What about a handicapped person or elderly people?

They’re disgusting but have to be changed frequently to keep the baby comfortable. - SamanthaRosie

40 Memes

Depends. - SamanthaRosie

41 Carolina Reaper

The hottest peppers in the world, at 2.2 million Scoville heat units (2.2M SHU), enough to feel like eating lava, give you major heartburn & a ring of fire (a burning sensation in the butt center). They’ve been used for dare challenges & they aren’t for the faint of heart. Yet a man who ate it had to go to the hospital as it inflamed his arteries. By comparison, jalapeños only go up to 8,000 SHU and habaneros go up to 350,000 SHU. - SamanthaRosie

42 Chemical Peels

Chemical peels have been a famous way to remove unwanted skin conditions, such as blackheads, sun damage & tumors, but they carry their prices to pay. The effects depend on strength & ingredients. Light peels have mild effects but must be used many times to remove much damage. Medium ones are a step up. Deep ones are the most feared, as those cause intense reactions such as severe pain (though phenol ones numb the pain), redness, excessive edema (making them bad for people with allergic reactions), blindness from edema, severe dryness & peeling (which is the purpose). Other reactions are flu-like symptoms as the body fights to heal the damage. Deep peels are even used in hospitals to remove cancerous skin & their price to pay is ongrowing pain & nasty effects that build up over time. People who had those compared them to having the worst sunburn you'll ever have & it just gets worse & worse but then all the unwanted damaged skin falls off & you're better than ever. It's advised you ...more - SamanthaRosie

43 Drama TV Shows

Out of this list I think this is the only one that is pretty easy to watch for pretty much all ages, most of these shows are pretty lighthearted dealing with things you would see in cartoons and anime, and in some cases anime and cartoons can get way more out there than most T.V. dramas do and those are considered for kids
Unless your talking about crime dramas - germshep24

T.V. dramas are popular & known for starting out lighthearted & then darker as they go on. Over time the most beloved characters often break up, get into a fight, or even die. The suspense only adds thrill to the experience. T.V. dramas aren't suitable for the faint of heart. - SamanthaRosie

44 Tattoo Appointments

Getting a tattoo is a fear many have, though they aren't as scary as many expect them to be. But however they do come with surprises. Tattooing involves repeatedly hitting ink-filled needles through skin to create the artwork under the skin. The ink is placed on the dermis (under the epidermis) & pain & inflammation follows. Tattoos are stupid to get anyway (no offense to any of you Tattoo fans), but the thought of one is too & often the most feared part. Now removing them is a whole new level where methods used to remove them can be brutal. The most common (yet brutal) method is with lasers & cause severe burning pain likened to a tiny hot poker traced on your skin & the after effects can last for weeks to months. - SamanthaRosie

A lot of people pass out, vomit or poop themselves while getting a tattoo. - RogerMcBaloney

45 Doctor's Appointments

Doctor's appointments are often feared in childhoods & sometimes they can live up to childs' fears. Sometimes at a doctor's office, they can request injections, which promote painful inflammation & sometimes even nastier after effects. Depending on what they inject to you, serious side effects can take place. Vaccinations are important & lowering even worse conditions such as the flu & even preventing other diseases. Still doctor's appointments are feared for those reasons, yet the anticipation of certain appointments drives anxiety high, therefore they're not for the faint of heart. - SamanthaRosie

46 Bombs

Bombs are extremely powerful & violent & being near a bombing is just off the chart scary to witness. They have damaged buildings, cities & taken multiple lives. People are attacking each other with bombs. Like guns, they were made for defense, but are being used the wrong way. We had ISIS attack innocent lives with bombs & it was just pure horror. Bombs are definitely not for the faint of heart. - SamanthaRosie

47 Long Lines

Long lines are known for being very stressful & even downright nasty. They’re common at amusement parks along with airports & convention centers, & when people queue together on crowds, long lines form. Wait times can be hours long & involve standing in them. To stand that long is unhealthy & puts a toll on the body & health & the physical stress is also added into the mental stress of queuing. People can get into hissy fits & even panic attacks depending on the wait times & environments. The worst places to wait in line are outside during hot days, where people are subject to heat-related conditions & likelier to get dehydrated. Yet being outside for hours leads to overexposure to the Sun’s ultraviolet rays, causing sun damage & putting guests at risk of cancers, making sunscreen important. Sometimes outside there are thunderstorms (which was exactly what happened when people waited more than half a day to ride the new Harry Potter roller coaster at Universal Fl) putting people ...more - SamanthaRosie

48 Condoms

They’re made for safe sex - SamanthaRosie

49 Airplanes

They did 9/11

Airplanes are known for causing aerophobia, a fear of flying, a popular fear many have. They go 32,000 to 40,000 feet, making them living nightmares for acrophobics (people with fear of heights) & sometimes they go through turbulence & the moment of encountering such turbulence can be unexpected, also adding to the fear of planes. 9/11 caused a major uproar in fear of flying, so security checks were placed for everyone’s safety. Now plane crashes are extremely rare, but the news shows them, making people further scared of flying. What we do know is that planes are much safer than cars or trucks, but they aren’t always for the faint of heart. - SamanthaRosie

50 Violent Video Games

I hate it when people blame things like violence or shootings on video games. If someone does such things, it's clearly because they are mentally ill, not because of video games. - RogerMcBaloney

Some video games have violence that could disturb people or even negatively influence them. Games like Mortal Kombat, Call of Duty, Assassin Creed, Manhunt, Zombie Apocalypse, Doki Doki Literature Club & Fortnite contain violence & some are bloody & gory. Now obviously those are nothing compared to Universe Sandbox, where you can destroy planets, stars & galaxies & kill off all life on those worlds in just moments, including us on Earth. - SamanthaRosie
