    Fiiiiinaaaallllyyyyyy!!! The Fifty Shades of Grey trailer was released and OMIGAWD. We finally get our first look at Anastasia and Christian. Not to mention the Red Room of Pain and Charlie Tango. But nothing about the books, nor the movie's casting, nor the trailer has ever gone smoothly. Fans are always divided. And the trailer is no different. For some ... it's everything they wanted and more. For others ... not so much.

    Count me in the latter category. I admit I'm not a fan of the books; however, I was sort of looking forward to the movie, primarily because I know I'll be forced to go see it (thanks, coworkers!) and I'd prefer to be entertained for two hours rather than bored silly -- or trying to stifle my laughter. But alas. The trailer promised more of the bored/laughing experience than the entertained one. Here are nine things about the Fifty trailer that made me, well, GAG.

    It doesn't matter whether you work out at the toniest spa-like gym or frequent a basement bargain dungeon. If you stay at any workout facility  long enough, you will see some gross -- and just plain ODD -- things. Like, for instance: No. You should not blow dry your pubic hair at the gym. Just FYI.

    Yes, we all know we are supposed to wipe down equipment after use, but sometimes I feel like the only person who actually adheres to that rule. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

    But just how disgusting can it get? Personally, I don't spend a whole lot of time in the locker room -- I'm a get-in, get-out kind of girl. So the nastiest things I witness are usually related to sweat pools and unwiped stairmasters. We asked around, though, and some of the most horrifying things people have seen at the gym will shock you. Be warned: That which is read cannot be unread.

    It's not uncommon to hear that a whole airplane full of people were annoyed by one child, but what happened recently on a Delta flight was icky enough to make international headlines. Aboard a flight from Beijing to Detroit last week, a Chinese child proceeded to do his business right out on his plane seat -- albeit on top of newspaper that his parents laid down for him.

    Apparently, passengers and the flight attendant asked the parents to bring the child to the restroom, but the kid's grandpa insisted that he go at his seat. Eek. Clearly, it was an uncomfortable situation for everyone present!

    When you're introduced to someone new, what's one of the first things you do? You shake hands. It's almost a reflex. The words "hello, my name is ..." are barely out of your mouth before your hand shoots out. Holding back feels standoff-ish at best, downright rude at worst. And honestly, it's perfectly harmless. OR IS IT? New evidence seems to suggest that we should ditch the handshake and do a fist-bump or a high-five instead. Yes, really. Say goodbye to your traditional hello.

    Got any ancient condiments lurking in your refrigerator? I do. Whenever I buy that fancy French mayonnaise, we seem to use all the stuff within a few days. But I also keep a bottle of "guest" ketchup because, while my son and I hate the stuff, most every other kid we ever have over for lunch loves it. I don't know how old our guest ketchup is -- three years? Meanwhile, I know I made that grape jam back in September. There's no mold on it, but is it still good?

    Unlike other foods, condiments aren't usually going to give off obvious signs that they need to be thrown out. Many are made to last a long time. But how long do open bottles and jars of them last in the refrigerator? Here are 8 condiments you should throw out of your fridge right now.

    Here is a little gross factoid: everyone picks their nose -- even if they won't admit it. It's human nature. If something is in there, you are genetically predisposed to wanting to get it out. Ideally, you will have a tissue handy to aid the excavation. Though, more than likely, you are going in for the big dig with digits exposed -- like these stars we've caught in the icky act. Check it out!

    Is this the really real reason Brody Jenner skipped Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding? Was he too embarrassed after walking in on Kim practically naked, and admitting that she turns him on? Agh! Brain bleach, I need brain bleach, stat!

    In a sneak peak for the next episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the crew vacations in Thailand, and in addition to getting attacked by a baby elephant, Kim K. apparently decided to take part in a sexy photo shoot for her then-fiance Kanye West, who had to miss the trip due to a previous commitment in Germany.

    Anyone who wears contact lenses knows the fears associated with them. After all, we're touching our eyes every morning. It's kind of gross, when you really think about it. But none of us could have been prepared for the horrifying story out of Taiwan that represents all those nightmares in one: 23-year-old Lian Kao, a student, is now blind after a parasite ate her eyeballs because she left her contacts in for six months.

    OK, so we ALL know you're not supposed to do that. I have been wearing contacts for 25 years and have only slept in them once or twice. But most of us also know people who sleep in their contacts almost every night, right? Maybe not for six months, but for a lot longer than they should.

    Even if you like snakes, it's doubtful you would be okay with a neighbor like William Frederick Buchman. The elementary school teacher was sentenced to three years probation for keeping more than 400 snakes in his California home. The scene was so disturbing, a spokesperson from the Animal Services Division called it a "House of Horrors."

    Though why he kept the snakes is just as creepy as the fact that he did.

    There's something about lakes that has always spooked me out. Maybe it's because I grew up next to an ocean and -- with the exception of sharks (which you never saw) -- you had a pretty good idea what you could expect to find in the water. But lakes are still and mysterious. Anything could be hiding several feet below the water's surface, just waiting for you to take a chance and dive in.

    And my darkest and most irrational lake fears were confirmed this weekend, when swimmers and boaters in New Jersey discovered they were sharing Lake Hopatcong with a 20-foot snake. Oh. My. Lord.
