Suppose you ran into Pennywise the Dancing Clown. You should have no time defeating It if you didn't allow them to feed on your fear. But could you survive 24 hours of It chasing you? Especially when it has the power to shape shift into something you're actually afraid of?

Not as easy as it sounds, huh?


People shared their opinions with us after Redditor TheKutsi asked the online community:

"To win 3 billion dollars, you have to survive 24 hours getting chased by a horror villain of your choice. Who are you picking? Why?"

It Follows...

"That STD thing from It Follows. I’ll fly somewhere."

AlunWH

Good luck to that thing! I suppose it'd have to walk across the ocean floor in that case. It'd never get to you.

Ghostface

"Ghostface. They’re always clumsy AF falling over their own feet. Plus I’ve seen that movie 20 goddamn times! I know the rules."

Brite_4Cats

Everyone thinks they know the rules until someone–Ghostface–breaks them!

Chucky

"Chucky. I’ll kick that little f*cker so far."

FeistyProfessor642

You could always melt him into a puddle. They did that in Child's Play 2 to great success!

Leatherface

"Leatherface from Texas Chainsaw Massacre, who cannot chainsaw massacre me as I do not live in Texas. Checkmate."

firstjustghostly

You hear a knock at the door. You peek through the peephole to see Leatherface doubled over wheezing, having run the whole way from Texas.

The chainsaw revs.

Jaws

"Jaws. I won't even go in the shower."

Are you suggesting you don't shower at all... or that that shark has the power to swim through the drains?

Either scenario is horrifying.

Zombies

"The zombies from The Walking Dead. I'd hear them coming and just climb onto a roof for a little while."

cingalis

Oh, this is a winner. Yeah, you can just hang tight and you'll be fine. Grab a gun and take out a few for fun while you're at it.

Those Bird Box things!

"The things in Bird Box. Stay home, close the blinds, and play Switch all day."

Anrui13

The pandemic gave you a trial run for staying home all day so this works!

Freddy Krueger

"Freddy Krueger. I've been awake for longer than 24 hours before, I'll just play some Halo and wait for the clock to run out."

SilverSindicate

Freddy is no match for gamers!

Well, except for that one death in the terrible Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare.

That Alien (No, not the one you're thinking of...)

"I’ll take the challenge and have the alien from A Quiet Place."

[deleted]

Should be simple enough to just not talk or move for 24 hours, right?

That One Family

"The entire family from Get Out. I am Caucasian."

mrupdog

Now this is quite possibly the definition of racial privilege and it's absolutely saving your life! That family is no joke!

Looks like these people have got it all figured out. And of course they do – just watch a lot of horror movies and you should have a general idea about how to get by.

Think you've got a chance against any other horror villains? Feel free to tell us why in the comments below!

Kids start going to school from the age of five, and for the most part, they spend more time at school than at home. Because of that, teachers can become very important figures in the lives of their students.

Some students don't have the best home lives. Some keep it to themselves, but others confide in their teachers.

Curious about various situations, Redditor Delicious_Mastodon83 asked:

People Divulge What Depression Really Feels Like To Them

TRIGGER WARNING: This article contains sensitive content about depression and mental health.

As the stigma around mental health lessens (however slowly), people are more forthcoming about the problems they are facing. One of the most common mental health issues is depression.

Depression can affect many different types of people. Factors such as gender, race, nationality, and even age have no bearing on whether someone suffers from depression or not.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), globally, "...an estimated 3.8% of the population affected, including 5.0% among adults and 5.7% among adults older than 60 years..."

Depression displays in certain patterns, such as mood changes, physical difficulties, and social isolation. However, depression manifests differently in different people and feels different to different people.

Reddit users divulged what depression felt like to them when Redditor iodineseaspray asked:

"What does depression feel like to you?"

Some of this is sure to sound familiar.
