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.

Other Worldly

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

Mournful

[rebelmouse-image 18360332 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18360333 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Warning

[rebelmouse-image 18360334 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18360335 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18360336 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Death

[rebelmouse-image 18360337 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The scream of a dying animal.

Cruelty

[rebelmouse-image 18360338 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18360339 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

"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

[rebelmouse-image 18360340 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Tinnitus.

Scraping

[rebelmouse-image 18360341 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Knife and fork on a plate.

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

Snap, Crackle, Pop

[rebelmouse-image 18360342 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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"

What is it about someone that captivates you instantly?

Could it be the twinkle in their eye as they talk about their passions? Or perhaps its their overwhelming sense of humor that draws in everyone in the room?

Whatever it might be, everyone has that one trait, that one quality, that can make them instantly interesting to someone listening nearby.

Turns out not all of us are interested in being benevolent Gods.

It's Reddit, so we're not exactly surprised, but we're suddenly glad divine cosmic powers don't work this way.

Are you like me and the 1990s were only 10 years ago?

Yes, I can do the math, but 1990 being 32 years ago still seems unreal.

Why is that?

Maybe it's the fact it marked the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st.

Either way, it just doesn't seem that long ago and the nostalgia for the trappings of the 1990s is strong.

You're probably going to be beat over the head with this as you read this charming article but bedbugs are a nightmare and they are always lurking (in the back of my mind) when I think about purchasing some items secondhand.

Some years ago, a relative brought in a stuffed animal and some other items off the street. Within days we had a bedbug issue.

It was thankfully resolved very quickly–good thing it was caught so early–but let's just say I dealt with phantom itch for a while.

Nooo thank you.
