16 Pics That Are Making Us Uncomfortable

Diply 15 May 2018

Good pictures move you — some to tears, some to action, and some to the edge of your seat. They can take you back in time to visiting old friends and reliving all the happy birthdays and family vacations, and they can make your sides split with laughter.

These are more of the edge-of-your-seat kind, pics that make you hope for the best even as you prepare for the worst. So strap yourself in and prepare to be uncomfortable!

And getting close enough to take a pic of an angry mountain lion is too close for me.
