Vibe Out With Ed Sheeran & Post Malone, Get Schooled by Kevin Hart, Lose Your Popcorn at a Scary Movie, Treat Yourself to Some Candy or Get Drunk in Costume.

There’s a museum opening up in Sweden that will be dedicated to the world’s most disgusting food.

There’s foods like fruit bat, maggot-infested cheese, three-penis wine. Shall we go on?

Some of you may be gagging, but actually, the point the museum’s curator wants to make is that “disgust is cultural and contextual.”

There’s other “disgusting” foods like steak tartar, but that’s not as disgusting to us, right? Food for thought.

The museum wants to challenge people’s perceptions of food.

Anyway, while you’re rethinking your entire philosophy of food and culture, don’t get so lost in thought that you forget to go out and have a good time. You’ve earned it.

Here’s a list of events to check out, because you’ve thought hard enough for one day. — Claire Lin
