Why is the strawberry white? lol
I think this slideshow somehow induced mild trypophobia... the play of light and focus in some of those photographs is disconcerting. I wonder if there is any research on suggestively inducing phobias?
lets say this trypophobia is horrible you get holes in your, skin don't believe me? look it up!!
NO WAIT also try reading this:
Many people think they are the only one in the world who are unnerved by holes. Not all holes mind you, just tiny holes in asymmetrical clusters, often times with things in them. Like a lotus seed pod. Most people when faced with this fear start to feel really uncomfortable and a creepy, itchy feeling crawls over their body.
The types of holes trypophobics fear fall into the following categories;
Holes which occur in different types of tissues, human and animal, this is quite a big category. Human pores on their skin, if enlarged, blackheads, pockmarks left by acne or other skin disorders. Holes in skin caused by creatures that may have eaten through the skin creating a hole.
Cheese that has holes may seem the most obvious but there is also honeycomb. In types of meat holes are found and I think these are to allow veins through. There are lots of completely disgusting holes found in various types of offal. I believe that sweetbreads are particularly good for finding holes in.
Those dried seed pods you get in pot pourri.
This is about things like worms and maggots and stuff eating into things and creating holes in materials and foods.
Holes that are created naturally like from the ocean creating holes in rocks.
Holes created in ice and snow as it melts.
Neuro Linguistic Programming or NLP fast phobia techniques and methods help in quick elimination and eradication of phobia of holes.
NLP shows you how to understand and model your own successes, so that you can reproduce them. It is a way of discovering and unfolding your personal genius, a way of bringing out the best in yourself and others.
NLP is the study of excellence. It is the study of both the conscious and unconscious processes that combine to enable people to do what they do. The key to success is often unknown at a conscious level. Using NLP you can elicit these unknown pieces.
You may want to improve your relationships, or eliminate an anxiety, or become more competitive in the market place. The key pieces are not found in the muscles, but in your inner thoughts, like words or pictures, or feelings or even beliefs. Once you know these unknown pieces you can change them. NLP exercises are like thought experiments, mental exercises or a game. The laboratory is your mind.
So next time you see holes in something spare a thought for the thousands of people that suffer from trypophobia.
Trypophobia is the fear of holes.

So I've suffered from this ever since I was a very young girl. It's nice to know there is a name to it. What that being said, I've been able to control my feelings by handling "holey" objects one step at a time. The images above put me into overload and I've been struggling ever since yesterday morning, this has been very difficult to process. With that being said, I also watched the video and made it all the way through. But what really pissed me off about it was that it did not contain only organic images that us "trypophobes" are used to. Instead it displays obviously fake but disgusting and un-natural images that would be disturbing to most people. Like the fingers with the holes, that is the image of an eel's mouth transposed onto the fingers to make them appear as if they are being eaten away or damaged, and the one of the pretty Asian girl with the lotus pods transposed onto her body, well to me that also holds an implication of violence against women and somebody just trying to be disgusting. So I would recommend that to study people's reaction to these things that the experimenter stick with images of natural occurrences of holes and not use images that were made because some idiot with Photoshop decided just to be gross. This world already has enough disgusting things as is.
