It just feels bad, man.

Every person in this world, in one way or another, has his or her own likes and dislikes when it comes to a lot of things. It is just human nature. so to speak. For instance, some might like eating pizzas with pineapple toppings, while others do not. Some might like the idea of traveling, while others would prefer saving up. Some might like watching a certain T.V show, while others simply prefer going to the movies. You see, the list just goes on and on.

Interestingly, an artist by the name of Jacob Andrews decided to venture on this topic by drawing up the 10 Objectively Worst Feelings in the World.

Well, it is actually something that the world really needs now....
