Some things are better left untold, you know. Like the fact that your bed likely has somewhere around 10M dust mites or that humans have enough power to bite off their finger… I mean, if that sounds like a scenario from a science fiction movie, you'd better move your seat closer and tune in to ‘The Facts Guy.’

The TikTok creator Adorian Deck, aka The Facts Guy, has been deliberately ruining people’s days with the viral video series featuring some of the most disturbing facts. The appeal to them is somewhat paradoxical, you don’t wanna know them yet you still can’t look away!

So below we selected some of the most creepy, entertaining, surprising and plain weird ones to get you in the Halloween vibe or simply to understand why some facts often remain untold.

Bored Panda reached out to Adorian Deck, the content creator and ‘The Facts Guy’ behind these viral TikTok videos with disturbing facts. It turns out, Adorian is no rookie when it comes to content making on social media, since he has been making YouTube videos for over 10 years and had 100k subscribers before joining TikTok.

“I created a brand called OMGFacts back in 2009 when I was 16 years old that ended up getting 15 million followers across Facebook and Twitter that I later sold and I don't own anymore,” he told us. What’s more, Adorian has always had a love for the most shocking, amazing facts. “I also have been a big TikTok fan for a few years, there's so many creative, talented, authentic people on the platform that I love to watch.”

The content creator said that he stopped making consistent videos in 2016 to focus more on his business, which was building brands similar to OMGFacts and helping other clients go viral. “TikTok inspired me to make videos again, so I went with what I had the most interest in, which was surprising fun facts. I started my account in June of 2021 and now have over 2 million followers!”

When it comes to the facts Adorian shares on his platform, he said that there is a lot of information out there, but not all of it is real or interesting. “My audience finds it valuable that I make it very easy to learn the most interesting facts out there,” he said and added that he feels like he now has a lot of experience to know what kind of information is really the most interesting out there.

The facts that get popular are “usually based on taking assumptions they thought about the world and turning them upside down with real statistics and timelines. The most interesting facts are the ones that make us feel something the most. Scared, shocked, amazed, inspired, disgusted. Doesn't matter which emotion as long as it's a strong emotion,” Adorian explained.

Moreover, facts about history that alter your perception of time are also super popular among his viewers. “They make you feel like the events did not happen very long ago, or that they happened at the same time, or maybe happened a lot longer ago than you thought,” Adorian said. “We all have assumptions on history based on what we've heard or been taught, but there's a lot we don't know out there,” he added.

The TikToker believes that people find disturbing facts interesting because it creates an emotional trigger that makes us focus more on what's being told. “Mix this with something that's shocking and we just don't want to turn our eyes away. It's similar to driving by a car wreck and everyone slows down... you can't look away.”

Had it for just over one week, was horrible. One of the only good things I felt was when some of the nurses, who were more used to that i guess, would chat to me, and look at my eyes and understand what I was 'pointing' to. My sister had an innate ability to read my eyes and translate. But to be shoved in a corner, ignored, it's mental anguish. People saying 'I know you're still in there' but sounding uncertain was scary, I wanted to scream 'I'm here, don't worry, figure it out and omg I'm thirsty!!'. Getting movement back is like a second chance that I will never take for granted. Even just being with the person can be a great comfort (EDIT: thank you everyone for your kind words)

Guy Shares Disturbing Facts To "Ruin Your Day" And Here's 35 Of The Most Upsetting Ones In the Victorian era, people used to take photos of their dead relatives in lifelike positions in order to keep them as momentos.

Sure this happened but it wasn't nearly as common as people keep saying, and all of those "posed corpse" photos you see online are just living people. The stands were there to help them stay upright and in place long enough for the picture to take, since it took bloody forever to take a picture. The only "lifelike" positions actual corpses were photographed in were sleeping/lying down positions.

Common after Waterloo but rapidly left behind - During the 18th century, typical denture materials in Europe and the U.S. included human, animal teeth, and ivory. Hardened rubber became a popular base for porcelain teeth when it was developed in the mid-1800s, and early plastics such as celluloid and Bakelite replaced it soon after.

Just imagine that hundreds of thousands of years in the future, when we are long gone, aliens will visit earth and discover there was once an intelligent species on the planet, as evidenced by the microplastic in everything. Nothing else will have survived, no buildings, nothing, just microplastic. And since that can't form naturally, there must have been a species who made them. What a wonderful legacy... :(

People tend to think of 'bacteria' as poison, when it's everywhere and on everything and if we tried to eliminate all of it in our life, our immune system would be useless. Think about it, we touch things all the time and we rub our eyes or pick something out of our teeth, but we don't end up in hospital for it.
