OVER THE COURSE of our jobs at DailyEdge.ie, we spend a lot of time on the internet.  A lot.

As a result of that we can tell you that when people say the internet is a strange place, they’re not wrong.

Frankly, we’re not content to keep our knowledge to ourself.  We just can’t be alone with this stuff.

So, we give you, seven strange corners of YouTube you might not be aware of.

ASMR

ASMR, or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, is something some people experience when hearing certain sounds.  Those who experience it describe it as a tingling feeling in the scalp, like a starburst on your head.

It is usually brought on by soft sounds like whispering, the sound of writing, pages turning and the like.

As a result, there are lots and lots of videos geared specifically towards trigging this feeling in those who experience it.

Fruit eating

We’re not really sure what this one is about.  What we do know, is that there are lots of videos of women eating fruit, and that they have lots of views.

This girl has recorded herself eating a kiwi, a lemon, a banana and here, an orange.

This video has 15,674 views.

Belly button play

This is where things really get creepy.  Sorry.

39,800 views.

Crushing

We’re assuming this is some branch of foot fetishism.  Essentially, what goes on here is that women wear heels and stand on things.

These things range from teddy bears to food, or in this case, ‘lovingly made models’.

Unboxing

This trend is one best suited to people who are into gadgets, as all it really entails is people taking gadgets out of boxes, narrating all the while.

There are those who have labelled it ‘geek porn’ but we would never say something like that.

505,131 views.  FIVE HUNDRED AND FIVE THOUSAND, ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY ONE.

Noseplay

In these wonderful creations, women touch their noses and flare their nostrils.

The less said, the better, we think.

7,718 views.

Reborn dolls

Reborn dolls are dolls made to look as realistic as possible.

In these videos, people (mostly women) film themselves doing regular every day baby tasks with their dolls.
