We've all seen computers get hung up for a bit when we asked them to do a bit too much. This is often referred to as "lag".

The human brain is capable of having a very similar reaction in a variety of situations. Have you ever just completely forgotten what you were saying in the middle of a sentence? Brain lag.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.
