What is it that really turns your stomach?

I mean really makes you want to put down your fork and wretch? Is there anything that would interfere with your meal that much?

Having had two kids ( Daddy side) I became like one of my aunt's who commented that she learned to wipe a baby's butt and eat a sandwich at the same time. I was a pharmacy major and would dissect a pig, lamb eye and something else's heart then go directly to lunch so I have a pretty strong stomach. Ate once, sort of no option deal, at a Golden Corral and along came a kid being rushed, you could tell, to the bathroom but he didn't make and spewed a column of purple goo vomitus right beside our table. I didn't miss a beat.

What seems to get me though is biting into a piece of chicken and seeing red ooze. Can't handle it. Any other rare meat is okay. Rare chicken does me in.

Anyone else?
