There are things almost everyone can unanimously agree SUCK. Colonoscopies? Check. Failure? F*ck that. Breakups? No thanks. No one likes any of that shit.

So, what do all those things have in common besides being horrible? They’re all necessary evils. You see, despite how much they suck, they are essential parts of life. Necessary evils keep you safe, healthy, and they  provide essential learning lessons.

Get that colonoscopy, live through the pain, and you healthy! Fail at something? Learn from it and try again! Endure a breakup? Cool, now you know what you deserve and need in a partner. So despite how much things like spiders and sparrows blow, they are things we couldn’t live without. BUT THEY ARE EVIL. PURE EVIL!!!!

Here are 17 of the biggest necessary evils:


Heartbreak. “Well yeah, I’m sad. But at the same time I’m really happy that something could make me feel that sad. It’s like it really makes me alive, you know? It makes me feel human. The only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt something really good before. So I have to take the good with the bad. So I guess what I’m feeling now is a beautiful sadness.” – Butters


Cars. Giant lumbering metal beasts capable of murdering random people due to the error of the lazy, careless, users. Yet, we need them for EVERYTHING and we will give a license to drive to anyone.


Failure. If you don’t experience sitting down and being humbled, you’re all the more likely to not only let success go to your head but to take things for granted.


Chemotherapy. Generally speaking, it destroys most cells, but cancer cells typically have a higher metabolic rate and are thus more sensitive to chemo agents. The idea is its a race for the chemo agents to kill the cancer before it kills the rest of you. It sucks…but its effective, saves lives, and newer/better agents are being developed every day.
