People Share Their Biggest Fear

There is nothing to fear except fear.... yeah right. Not True! Fear is real. Fear is a thing that is disturbing and scary and it's totally fine to have it. You don't need a big 'Braveheart' like speech to avoid it. Because you can't avoid it. In fact, we must embrace it. We all have the things that strike our cores the most. So let's chat about it.

Redditor u/BoobySponges wanted everyone to own up and discuss all the things they want to hide from by asking..... What's your worst fear?


For reals.....

Losing grip with reality. Racing_in_the_street

For reals. The idea of onset schizophrenia or dementia is absolutely terrifying. I have nightmares about this. OiTheCats

Worth It....

i think for most of my life it's been that i won't end up doing anything that i think is really worthwhile. not necessarily leading a bad life, but sort of a meh life. that's a really sad thought to me. Reddit

Me too, me too.....

Being alone. depthstrider117

It's already killing me, TBH. And the fact that the more you're alone makes you more alone is something I just can't get my head around. TheHater4936

Me too, me too. BoobySponges

From Within..... 

Getting eaten alive from the inside out by wasps. inomenat

There is this moment in the Witcher game where you are talking with a ghost woman who paralyzed by a potion and then was eaten alive by rats while she could feel everything but couldn't move or scream or anything. That certainly is up there on the list of bad ways to go. fail-mail-ninja

Watered....

Drowning in a trapped space. smogdoggie

The Cycle....

That my son will grow up to be like his abusive father, despite how much I try to teach him differently. I worry it won't be enough. claricia

Man, breaking those family MOs are tough...even more so to identify and figure out how to get out of it without going crazy. Its great to hear others that have made it though man, congrats, truly, I know how difficult it can be. jhans22

Losing It....

The thing that scares me most is losing my mind. I see dementia in everyday life more and more and it terrifies me. It could happen to any of us and indeed probably will happen to many of us. The downside of longer life spans is our bodies will become less able and the part that I fear more than any is to lose my brain, who I am and all the memories from my life. If I think about going deaf, becoming unable to walk or even losing my sight, I could imagine dealing with it. But to lose who I am, nah, that's truly, truly terrifying. TannedCroissant

I imagine if I was insane.....

Being locked in a mental hospital while sane.

Several jobs I've had involved being in and around these units. I've had interactions with the patients that left me scared of being in there for good.

I imagine if I was insane I wouldn't care as much. Wowiejr

After Me.... 

My biggest fear is that my wife will be depressed when I am gone. She is 6 years younger. Im caucasian and she is asian. I also used to smoke and drink a ton. Many factors suggest she will live much longer. I have made sure that financially she will have a better than average situation but she has always said that when I die she wants to die.

I am hoping that we can start a family before we are too old so she will have a reason to live and be happy when she is old. blazingeye

The Future.

Turning into one of my clients. I'm a hospice aide. I know exactly what its like to die slowly from a horrible disease. I'm in the process of changing careers, I think I've had enough. Huxeley

I tend to avoid public bathrooms if I can help it. They are terrible places. Few are clean and I admit I am a bit of a clean freak. My beautiful bottom will not grace a dirty toilet seat, no thank you. I have standards.

I'm being only sort of serious. I've been in a pinch before. But have you ever seen a gas station bathroom that was utterly destroyed by the patron (or patrons) before you? It's a horrible sight. 0/10: Do not recommend.

Naturally, some crazy things happen in your local public restroom. We heard some stories after Redditor RuffNBoy asked the online community,

"What is the wackiest thing you've seen in a public restroom?"

People Break Down Which Behaviors Scream "I'm Not That Smart'

One should never be fooled by a first impression.

Certain people might behave in a way that is less than indicative of what they are actually like, and might prove to be far more impressive, or much less friendly, once you get to know them a little better.

However, sometimes people will behave in a certain way which leaves one unable to avoid making assumptions about people.

Namely, their intelligence.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to hear what behavioral traits the Reddit community took as a sign of possessing a considerable lack of intelligence, leading them to ask:

"What are some behaviors that scream unintelligence?"

One of my favorite horror films ever is Black Christmas (1974). It's the perfect slasher film. It's scary. It's uncompromising. It's sordid. It's eerie. It leaves you with a horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach. It features some great acting, too! There are some powerhouse talents in it, including Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, and Andrea Martin.

But did you know that the film has been remade? It's been remade twice, as a matter of fact. The first remake, which was released in 2006, was so ridiculous. Not even Martin, who showed up in a glorified cameo in the role of a sorority house mother, could save it.

It was remade again in 2019 — this one bore few similarities to the films that came before it. One wondered why this one even had the same name, but there you have it.

Suffice it to say that the original Black Christmas is untouchable. But it is not the only film out there that should never have been remade. Far from it.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor CrescendoX asked the online community,

"What movie is so perfect that if it would remade, it would be a crime against humanity?"
