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!

Foreigners Break Down Their Favorite American Meals

Growing up, I had zero idea that the food I ate daily was "cultural."

It didn't occur to me until I was a kid when my mother had to gently explain to me that not everyone ate rice & beans.

She had to explain it because we were about to eat at a white friend's house for the first time.

People Share The Best Ways To Politely End A Conversation

Have you ever been caught in a conversation you didn't want to be in? Or start talking to someone only to realize you want to stop? Perhaps you were talking to a friend when the conversation took a turn for the uncomfortable.

Whatever the case, we've all been in those situations where we want the conversation to stop, but don't want to be rude.

When I was in third grade, I asked if I voted on American Idol that week. I said yes, since everyone seemed to, but of course I didn't know what American Idol was. Being pop culture challenged, I thought it was a ship. Needless to say everyone was confused when I was asked who I voted for and I replied, "What do you mean? I voted for American Idol!"

It didn't take me long to realize something was amiss, and I probably would've very rudely excused myself from the conversation (fueled by my embarrassment) if my teacher hadn't called us to attention at that very moment.

Luckily, the people of Reddit were willing to share their methods to politely end a conversation when Redditor Spritti33asked:

"How does someone politely end a conversation with a person who won't stop talking?"
