What scares you the most?

Asked by May2689 (1289 points ) March 27th, 2009

What is the one thing that scares the bejesus out of you? Ghosts? Bugs? Monster under your bed? For me ghosts, definetly.

Not finding someone.
Though I honestly think it’s unlikely, the chance exists and it’s terrifying.

Losing my mind and knowing it’s going. The idea terrifies me…

some mix of @TaoSan ‘s and @Likeradar ‘s and @asmonet ‘s

and never finding an end to this rollercoaster of mania and depression

I would find it very scary if I were homeless, penniless, and jobless, especially in today’s unstable economic climate.

I’d say burn pits are high on my list, but apparently we can’t discuss those on Fluther, which makes them that much scarier:

@TaoSan I hope you weren’t being serious about wis.dm people scaring you…

Zen's avatar

Anything happening to my kids. A very distant second: snakes.

Dying. Not because I’m scared of what will happen in an afterlife, but because I’m scared there might not be an afterlife. I just want to live a really, really long time. Life is way too short.

Kraken's avatar

Being all alone. At least in Death I cease to exist and that’s all folks. I won’t be able to fear since I won’t have any life force left. Being all alone when you are alive that is my biggest fear.

Kraken's avatar

@DrasticDreamer That’s #2 on my list. I am too certain that when we die, it’s lights out, see you never. I feel that being alone is my biggest fear.

Kraken's avatar

@Zen I thought it was losing to me in a game of Backgammon with real dice in real life. You know it!

rooeytoo's avatar

Not doing, living, trying or experiencing life to the fullest because of the fear.

syz's avatar

That creationism-teaching zealots will take control of the government.

Zen's avatar

@Kraken Anytime,any platform baby.I’ll bring the dice. Ok, maybe not on Yahoo games (almost an oxymoron) as they are slow as mollasses…

Go Bucs!

The thought of all the people who are losing their jobs and may not be able to pay their bills coupled with the uncertainty of when things will begin to improve.

@Halliburton_Shill: Those questions were moderated for poor construction if I remember them correctly, not because of their content.

Halliburton_Shill's avatar

@asmonet – there are far more poorly questions all over this site. Those met pretty much every aspect of the guidelines and what makes a great question. Here’s the question that was finally accepted, note how little difference there is:

What scares me most is the thought of anything happening to my kids. Can’t think of anything even remotely scarier.

@Halliburton_Shill I have removed your quip because you deliberately used the “mark great answer” URLs in your links in order to game the system and inflate your score. People would click on the links and not realise they were marking your responses as “great answers”. This is totally unacceptable. If you do this again, you will be banned.

@Halliburton_Shill: So…

Billy can have 20 race cars, Mommy, I want 25!
His questions sucked, mine did too! I want mine back!
