Most Useless Body Parts


The Top Ten

1 Male Nipples

Not useful.

Give me one good use for these... Go on, I dare you. - Cazaam

No good uses... but may I remind you that the butt, crotch, and brain are very important - istooduptoabully

They don't get you breast cancer.

2 Wisdom Teeth

Ouch! - BorisRule

Mine was in 2017 on August that year was so boring I got it pulled out on that month and 2 months on October I got all of them out it was so painful this was Mexico in a Hospital it was a doctor the doctor was kind of nice and I was 16 I was going to turn 17 It was not fun and I had a very bad birthday too! - Lordvader3500

They have to be removed. They’re just a pain, literally. - blackflower

I only have one...lucky it doesn't hurt me (for now...)

3 Appendix

I sometimes have a fear of getting appendicitis, it normally happens to children but did you know Zac Efron got it when he was 20.

What are they even for? They are utterly useless.

You remove it and you're fine. - AlphaQ

Please get it higher!
Its totally useless and danegerous!

4 Coccyx

The final vertebrate of the spine. This is from the time we had tails. More rudimentary remains no one cares about. - Cazaam

It's got no purpose and it really hurts when fall on the floor on your back. Ow. - PlatinumTheHitgirl

5 Gall Bladder

It's used to store bile, which is a substance critical to digestion. Plus, pufferfish expand their gallbladder (yeah, their gallbladder) to not only give it a distinct look but to defend against predators. So it isn't ENTIRELY useless. - PhoenixAura81

If it becomes a gallstone factory, out it goes. - Cazaam

My dad had to get this removed because it had become really bad. He almost died. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

Most people think that this is where vomit it stored, but that's the liver. - Servbot

Vomit? You mean bile? The liver produced bike, but it is stored in the gall bladder and aids in digestion of lipids. - SplashMoun10

6 Plica Semilunaris

Otherwise known as the "third eyelid", this is the remains of a nictitating membrane that many reptiles have.
Ha, take that creationism! Darwin's got a point! Speaking of... - Cazaam

7 Darwin's Point

A small folded piece of skin at the top in the corner of some people's ears. It may have been used to localise sound easier but now is just another rudimentary body part that 1 out of 10 people have. - Cazaam

Really? Only one in ten people have it? YAY I'M SPECIAL!

8 Adenoids

Like tonsils but have no purpose whatsoever because they are only a defense until the age of 5 when they start to shrink and by the age of 10 they are pretty much useless. Yet they can still get inflamed like tonsils. Bummer... - Cazaam

9 Sinuses

If you didn't have sinuses, air would be trapped in your skull putting pressure on the brain. Be thankful for them. - PositronWildhawk

When my dad got ramsay hunt syndrome, (sorry if I spelled that wrong) he lost lad the sinuses feelings in his face. They still aren't perfect and his face almost looks lopsided without a beard. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

Ever had an infection of these bad boys? Not very nice. - Cazaam

Good for improving your ability to kiss

10 Buttocks

In a physiological sense (my dad told me, he's a heart surgeon), a person's butt is important to sit down, obviously, and even more importantly and less obvious, to stand upright. - PhoenixAura81

I know this sounds stupid but the butt is quite important. - FrankP

Stupid people getting plastic surgery to make them bigger, WHY? I'm actually fat and have big naturally and I don't like them being so big.

You need ass to sit down. - AlphaQ

The Contenders

11 Clitoris

Not as useless as a foreskin

What is this? - AlphaQ

12 Tonsils

My best friend in kindergarten had to take her tonsils out, so I don't really know what they're used for. - funnyuser

My mom says it hurts really bad to get your tonsils removed. Is this true? - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

Why do these exist? EVERY SINGLE TIME I get a sore throat, I get sick, then my mom reprimands me! It’s all my tonsils’ fault! >:(

Sometimes I wish that I had gotten a tonsillectomy as a kid because of this...

13 Floating Ribs

Rudimentary remains from our ancestors. Some creatures have more that 10 pairs of true ribs. Most people have 2 pairs but they don't really protect anything. - Cazaam

14 Arrector Pili Muscles
15 Foreskin

Yes literally just an STD catcher

16 Penis

Er what the hell am I reading, is a lot of this sexual?

:( they aren't useless...

Right...this is totally completely useless. *sarcasm* - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

Actually,'women need this in order to be impregnated, so this is kind of useful, plus I need it to pee. - Therandom

You do realize that if you're not circumcised, you're in a higher risk of AIDS. Not to mention that if you're in my country and you say it out loud, you're gonna get ridiculed.

17 Body Hair

It's useful in winter - Alkadikce

Once I had to wax my armpits and it hurt like hell.

Yeah its really annoying shaving it off, something on television about women with body hair though, probably because of how annoying it is.

18 Brain

But I masturbate to it - xandermartin98

We would be dead - BorisRule

Seriously, what is the brain's purpose? Thinking? That's the fingernail's job. The nervous system's boss? That's a sock. - Cyri

Hmm... Your brain controls your thought, feelings, memory, helps function many organs in your body, helps you move (yeah, it's not just your muscles; the brain coordinates movement), etc. - PhoenixAura81

It sucks, without it, everyone would finally be dead

24 Testicles

Without testicles, how can more humans exist?

What idiot voted for this - Topcansuckit

This isn't useless. Testicles create sperm, which is needed to make babies, along with eggs.

I'm pretty sure boys need this or Population would go down. - PatrickStar3

25 Heart

Man, so a vital organ that pumps your blood and gives oxygen and nutrients to your blood to distribute and carry throughout the body is useless. Wow... - PhoenixAura81

You need you Heart or you'd be ill and might pass away. And it would hurt a lot. - PatrickStar3

26 Abductor Digiti Minimi Muscle

It gives me the ability to wiggle my little toe :D Not that I need it because the little toe is only used for assisting with balance. - Cazaam

Overweight, obese...then big ones.
