When curiosity strikes, we tend to make our way to the handy-dandy Internet and we look up random things on Google. I’m sure most of us have been there. But sometimes it’s better if you don’t search for certain things.
If you are a fan of French NBA player Evan Fornier it may be too late to save you from witnessing what you would see if you search up his name. Yes, it may seem harmless to search up someone’s name. But this one, in particular, is a bit special.
His last name, which is an old French word for “Boulanger” (or “Breadmaker”), is also the name of a type of gangrene that affects the genitalia. No reason to go looking there.
Hopefully, you know how to spell crocodile when you want to search up the giant lizard. If not, you are in for an ugly sight.
Krokodil (not crocodile) is the street name for Desomorphine, a morphine derivative with powerful opioid effects that has been used as a substitute for heroin in Russia and Ukraine.
If you wonder why it may be bad to search this up, let us inform you.
Searching up Krokodil will often show you photos of the side effects of taking this drug. The drug itself includes toxic substances which can “cook” the skin, or cause large-scale tissue infection or damage in the injected area. It’s become known as a flesh-eating drug.
So unless you really want to see these horrendous side effects, we recommend you don’t search this up.
3. Calculus Bridge
If you need help on your next math homework, this isn’t the thing to search for. While Calculus Bridge may sound like a mathematical term, it is actually a major dental issue. And no, it’s not a pretty site to see. Trust us.
2. Your Email Address
While you may be curious as to what you’ll find when you search your email address online, it could be very terrifying.
Some Reddit users have reported seeing stolen accounts, spam, password leaks, and more.
In this case, it may be recommended to search up your email. In fact, it’s probably safest to search to double-check, even if you don’t like what you find.
A recommended tool to find if you’ve been compromised in a data breach is haveibeenpwned.com, which may let you know.
1. Your Symptoms
Never. NEVER. Search up your symptoms online and self-diagnose. This is never a good idea. We have all probably been there. We feel a pain or discomfort and BOOM… “you are going to die soon.”
It is better if you just check in with a medical professional if you are feeling unwell.
And please, if it’s an emergency, call 911 immediately and get off Google.
