Spooked People Reveal The Creepiest Things They've Ever Heard

Sounds can soothe us, bring us joy, or excite us. But they can also frighten or disturb us.

Reddit user thedaringtomcat asked "What's the worst sound you've ever heard?"

Here are the spine tingling results.

Love

Cats mating.

Scream

Rpanicked agony he emitted when he thought I was dead.

Love Call

A Fox doing a mating call at night is f'ing horrifying it basically sound like someone getting murdered.

Ear-Splitting

Air raid sirens.

Other Worldly

The noise the aliens make in the remake of War of the Worlds. Makes me shudder.

Mournful

I never knew a death rattle was real.

The worst sound I've ever heard was while I held my great grandmas hand as she was dying. It was bone cancer, stage 4. She went to the hospital not feeling quite right, a week later she died.

Haunting

The scream and crunching from a co-worker getting his sleeve then arm caught in the 60 quart dough mixer at work.

Warning

The high pitched noise they constantly play in certain areas that only kids ears can pick up to keep them away. I'm 24 and still hear it.

Mother

My mother in law's night terrors. She's so loud it goes through the walls. It's like listening to a turkey get terrorized, then strangled.

Alarming

I'm terrified of the Amber Alert sound...

Death

The scream of a dying animal.

Cruelty

Apparently people used to castrate boys so that they would keep their singing voice forever, since their voice would never break. I think they were called Castratos? I heard a recording of one singing a few years ago and it was utterly haunting. The creepiest thing I've ever listened to.

Let's Talk

"We need to talk." - From just about anyone. It could be relationship problems, job problems, my mom breaking bad news about my grandma... I've never heard those words in a good context.

Constant

Tinnitus.

Scraping

Knife and fork on a plate.

One minute I'm cutting a steak, the next minute I have a neck cramp.

Snap, Crackle, Pop

When I broke my ankle, I heard a loud POP of the bone snapping just before the pain hit. I had a split second of "oh sh*# that didn't sound good" just before "OH SH!# THAT DOESN'T FEEL GOOD EITHER"

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
