People answered a Reddit call to share the "weirdest thing" about their bodies, and after reading, you might find you're not as freakish as you thought. Everyone is different, and some of you have really, really weird bodies. This isn't to body shame, but more to body-gawk. Just kidding, everyone is fine.

Or at least, someone else is just as freakish as you are.

1. 9ickle's doctor wins the day for greatest bedside manner.

My belly button is about a half inch off center. When I was pregnant with my son it decided to migrate.... further. By the time I had him it was all the way on the left side of my belly.

At my last ultrasound their was a med student present. He was fascinated, he asked the doc what that's called. He lowered his glasses, raised his brows, took a good long look and said, "weird as shit."

2. When your body rejects your body, like chillyfeets' does, the only thing to do is talk about it online.

My immune system thinks I'm allergic to the progesterone I naturally release.

3. Young_McDonald_ is a different person when he turns the other cheek.

I have one attached and one unattached earlobe.

He just realized.

4. This comment from steve126a launched 1,000 puns about "The Confederate Follicles of Amhairica."

On the left side of my head, above my ear, I've developed a random bald spot slightly larger than the diameter of a quarter. Coincidentally, right below my right shoulder, I have a thick patch of back hair about the same size (my back is otherwise hairless). It's like a whole community of hair just said "fuck it" and moved to my body's equivalent of Florida.

5. Lily62442 is extremely susceptible to fraud. Somehow, this is a real thing.

Brains are part of the body, right? I have Prosopagnosia (face blindness), which means that I do not recognise or remember faces. I can look at someone, turn around, turn back, and I won't recognise their face. I don't recognise my coworkers, friends, or family by face. I have a lot of funny stories related to this...

This blew up!

Stories:

I have (twice) met a coworker while I'm not at work, had them greet me, and had to BS my way through an entire conversation because I had no idea who they were. Same person. Twice.

Somewhat sad but really interesting story: My partner was hospitalised about a year ago. His mother lives about about a 3 hour flight away, and she couldn't come see him immediately. When she came in, I was still driving over, because I'd gone to work that morning to pick some stuff up, and when I walked in, I didn't recognise her. She has beautiful hair, a very interesting colour. I didn't realise she dyed it, and it had grown in grey between when she heard and when she came. I asked if she was a nurse. Fortunately, she's wonderful and totally understood.

Presentations are the bane of my existence.

I had a friend in University who could do uncanny imitations of our professors. She also had some kickass tattoos, which were great for identifying her. She knew I was faceblind, but not quite how face blind until she came up to me imitating a professor we shared. Not only did I fall for it, she walked right up to me, 'assigned' some reading I'd missed, and walked off (small department, final year. This wasn't altogether unusual). The only reason I was remotely suspicious was that the professor wasn't a talking to students type. She was wearing a jacket that covered her tattoos, and I had no idea who she was.

6. Greenwood90 describes the dual conditions that make him simultaneously infuriating and fascinating to researchers.

I have a congenital blood disorder called Haemochromatosis. This means that my body absorbs far too much Iron from my diet and since it can't be expelled easily, my body stores the excess Iron wherever it can and the build up of it can cause nasty complications if not treated.

I also have Anaemia. Which is very strange as I have all this Iron in my body but yet it isn't being absorbed into my blood stream. Even Specialists at the BMA (British Medical Association) are scratching their heads about this and frequently ask for samples to research.

The tests have come back positive for Sasquatch.

7. Glitchypink has extremely unique eyes under those glasses.

My eyeballs are the wrong shape. They're shaped like cow eyeballs, so my optician tells me. It means I've been short sighted since birth and have worn glasses since I was 18 months old and it's not something that can be repaired by laser corrective surgery.

8. This guy is, as commenters loved to point out, a true dick head.

I have a perfectly smooth mushroom shaped, skin colored mole on the side of my head and I've had it since birth. My mom says it looks like a penis, you know, nice stuff that moms say.

9. Zeeyaa's doing fine.

I have two pee-holes.. they're right next to each other and pee comes out of both

10. Crazycatlover learned about the condition a little later than her parents expected.

I have Poland Syndrome which means I was born without a left pectoral muscle. I found out when I was 25 and mentioned to my dad that my left hand seemed slightly smaller than my right. His response: "The whole left side should be smaller because you have Stockholm Syndrome." After some confusion, explanation, and googling; I figured out what he meant (I have fewer symptoms than most despite having a worse case than average). My parents have known since before I was born (it showed up on the ultrasound) and insist they told me. I assume that conversation took place before I knew what muscles were, as I'm sure I would have remembered it if I had understood what they were saying.

I'm also allergic to my own sweat which is much more annoying.

Great excuse not to leave the couch.

11. Exile714 is, in fact, not alone.

When I have certain sexual thoughts, I get an involuntary sneeze reaction. It's not all sexual thoughts, just the ones I find inappropriate. Like, I when I first started fooling around with my girlfriend (now my wife) at her mom's house where we could get caught by her slightly younger sister, it happened a lot. But fooling around in general wouldn't cause the sneeze unless I was about to suggest something a little naughtier than normal.

My wife knows now, so when we're in bed and I sneeze her first reaction is to ask if it's an innocent sneeze or something else. It's only gotten me in trouble once or twice, like when her girlfriend casually mentioned threesomes and I sneezed immediately, which kind of pissed off my wife because she knew it wasn't an innocent one. Her friends and sister, thankfully, don't know about my sneeze reaction.

12. M3gav01t probably don't wear skinny jeans, cuz his knots don't fit (sorry).

I have comically oversized testicles. I only found this out a few years ago when I started dating my current girlfriend; nobody ever said anything before that. Now everybody who sees them comments on this.

13. Flyingspaceheaters posted to Reddit and immediately made some friends. Hooray for body-sharing.

I have a blue dot on my butt. It's a birthmark called a "Mongolian spot", is usually only found on Asians, and almost always fades after puberty. I'm 21 and white with no known Asian ancestry and its still there!

Edit: Wow this blew up. Hello, my blue-butted comrades!
