What one person finds cute can be absolutely terrifying to another...


I'm incredibly afraid of animatronics. My worst fear is to become trapped on a Disney World dark ride surrounded by all of those dead eyed, smiling robots. I know they can't come to life... but what if they did?!

Redditor u/Sanbii was wondering what everyone was afraid of, and asked, "What's your weirded irrational fear?" The answers are wild...

10. Most wish they could time travel...

"I'm terrified I'm going to wake up one day and find out I've slipped backwards in time, whether it be days, weeks, or even years. Worst case scenario I wake up in middle school. I can't do middle school again, man."

9. I'm just bursting with nerves...

"I hate seeing kids play with balloons because they pop them so close to their face, or when you rub two balloons together and they make that god awful screeching sound.

I hate having to inflate balloons too as I'm scared they'll pop in my face."

8. Protect cats at all costs.

"That I drop a knife or spill boiling hot water, not on myself, but on my cat."

7. An unbridled fear.

"I hate horses. They have human-esque teeth, they're huge, and they have eyes that trigger an uncanny valley reaction in me. Like, there's intelligence there, almost like a human, but numb. Almost like a human corpse. I'm trying to get over it. I'm pretty sure they can sense my fear, which doesn't help."

6. Has this ever happened to anyone?

"Dropping my phone in the gap between the floor and the elevator, and also in sewer grates."

5. Eyes are not meant to be touched!

"Stuff touching my eyes. I wear glasses, but refuse to wear contacts. Eyeballs are not meant to be touched!"

4. Imposter Syndrome

"My job will realize I am a fraud and fire me, even though I'm nationally recognized as an expert in my field."

3. Very superstitious...

"If I don't knock on wood after I've made a "what if" statement. I can't help but fear what would happen if I didn't knock on wood after my comment."

2. That sounds so creepy!

"That behind the window blinds someone is wide eyed and staring in. I've had it for years, and honestly it's a bit debilitating at times. Don't know why are where it came from."

1. I'm afraid of getting paper cuts anywhere

"For me it is paper cuts, specifically in the eye! I hate having papers too close to my eyes for this very reason! Very odd."

As a "high achieving" student, the biggest mind-blowing fact I have ever learned has been the sheer amount of straight-up lying that happens in formal education.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

We go hard on A Goofy Movie around here. Tevin Campbell as Powerline is the real King of Pop 'round these parts. The perfect cast is standard choreography

I needed to tell you all that so you understood it is not an attack on the movie when I say Max sucked.

Board games are designed carefully by teams of experts. Countless brainstorm sessions are carried out, designs and prototypes are proposed and changed, and plenty of focus groups are consulted along the way.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
