I was having a discussion about this with my friend last week. Is it the retching sound? Or is it the sight of it coming out of their throat? Is it the way they heave their whole body? Is it the color of the vomit itself? I hate the stuff. I had a dream where I was in the school bathroom at lunch time and I heard a bulimic in the stall next to me. I went crazy and ran out of school and told all the teachers. It wasn't that I cared that she was ruining her health, SHE WAS GROSSING ME OUT! Haha. If someone even mentions that they're nauseous, I run.

Oh, wow! I think if I were there on the ship I would be kind enough to not tell them what their real dinner was.

The grossest thing in my opinion is that you see what the vomiting person has eaten. I remember one episode of South park in which there's one dude who vomits every time one girl talks to him. And she tried to kiss him, but he vomited on her face. Of course he ruined everything but the girl didn't got angry and they started watching the vomit and discussing what he has eaten lol! I guess it won't be so funny if you see it in real life.

Aww, I saw that episode. That's how I feel every time I see the dude I like. I don't vomit though, but it's the same basic idea.

I think the grossest thing is probably the fact there are always carrot chunks in it. Even when the person concerned hasn't eaten carrots. I can't explain this anomaly ... it's one of the mysteries of the modern world.

The grossest thing, probably would be the color/looks of it and the smell. With it, that makes me vomit too! I even hate my own vomit. But I think there's a good smell vomit..right?

I always wonder how people could go into nursing or being a doctor. Anywhere that might even have a tiny chance of vomit is not a place I want to be.

I think for me the worst part of vomit is the smell. If you don't clean it up right away the smell will permeate everything! Also, I hate to clean it up. The consistency can be chunky and slimy and it is just absolutely disgusting! With 4 children, trust me I have seen my fair share of vomit. I think the worst is when my kids get car sick in my minivan. And then as the person that is actually vomiting I think the worst thing is the feeling of it coming out and trying to fight the urge to vomit. It is so awful. Have you ever had it come out your nose before? I have and trust me it is painful. I had really bad morning sickness with a couple of my kids and I vomited every morning with the first pregnancy. I don't think there is anything wonderful about vomit. I try to avoid it at all costs. Have a nice day and happy myLotting!!!

From the sound to the coming out to the body movement to the smell and the appearance is grosse!!! I don't like hearing somebody's vomiting and looking at them and the worst is seeing the appearance and the unexpected smelling the vomit. Eeeeewwwwwwwww!!!! when that happened, I had goose bumps all ove my body!!!

I guess it is the combination of all the gross things which make us feel upside down. Lol. I am getting grossed out too whenever a person tells me she's going to vomit. The most intolerable thing that I can't stand out of a vomit outburst is when the smell starts to concur the whole space. Usually in the bathroom the space is closed, no open windows because we certainly do not want people from outside seeing us inside the toilet looking ugly and naked and all. So when there an awful odor the smell is very strong and that is the grossest thing of all the other elements in a vomit. Lol! I hope I don't make you turn nauseous there though. If you are, just run. Lol. Just kidding.

The lingering taste and smell. I hate it and when someone else throws up, I just may do it myself too. Because of the smell. it usually doesn't look good either. Very sickening.

I vote smell. I would rather not look at it either, though!

the smell, mostly, but the stickiness of it too.

If I'm throwing up, or if I'm encountering someone who is, I won't think to myself that's gross. I won't think that after either. The first thing I wonder is are they ok, and I'll want to try to check up on them. I feel like if a person throws up they must be sick or something, and I really don't think that's disgusting.

The grossest thing is that you have to see what the other person had eaten comes out with a unbearable smell. I hate to see someone vomiting. Even thinking makes me yuckkk

I hate seeing someone vomit too, for its the sight of it coming out, and the smell, anything that smells bad is gross, and it will make me sick. I can look at it, the sight of it doesn't bother me that much, but its the smell. I wanted to be a nurse at one time..lol.
