Things that made you absolutely terrified today
« on: November 28, 2010, 08:49:12 pm »

There are a half of dozen threads like this, I know, but I heard someone say that there should be a fear thread, and there was no fear thread. So therefore, here is a fear thread. For things that scared you today. Simple.

It's known as the Oppai-Kaiju effect. The islands of Japan generate a sort anti-gravity field, which allows breasts to behave as if in microgravity. It's also what allows Godzilla and friends to become 50 stories tall, and lets ninjas run up the side of a skyscraper.

I meant to read 88 pages of some notes I had and I've only read 8  :-X

Not as much terrified, but more like "I have seen something that shouldn't have aired on TV, and now I'll spend the next few moments curled up in a fetal position in a corner attempting to gouge my eyes out and pour brain bleach down them while babbling like a mad man".

As my sister, mom, and I were setting up our Christmas tree, for some reason they were watching I think it was the Wendy Williams Show (nothing else was on apparently). Anyway (and I know this'll be on The Soup in a heartbeat (say next episode that airs (You HAVE been warned))) after a performer was interviewed, he started singing another song (probably from a new album or something; very 80s sounding. Maybe a re-release), and everyone was dancing or doing a dance competition; first a flamboyant dancer, then another, then another... and then out of nowhere, an elderly couple (married for 60 years according to the interview with them after the dance) were dancing like you'd see some people dancing in a nightclub during Mardi Gras.

I've got a couple shots of hot sauce laced with cayenne pepper and garlic juice to pour in my eye sockets right now to try and remove the image from my head. Seriously, the deepest darkest parts of Hell look like paradise compared to what I saw. My God, what did I do to deserve such torment?

Itnetlolor has gone stark raving mad!

EDIT:
And if someone already uploaded a clip onto Youtube, I advise against looking for it. You'll just end up like I did. Blind and in pain with a horrifying image burned in the retinas.

Aw man, that thing was hilarious. I'm surprised they had the energy to be going at it like that, to be honest.

Slenderman, but it's a happy fear, if that makes any sense. Years of never being scared by any media whatsoever makes the Mythos a welcome change.

In the washroom on this floor, there's a little ventilation grate set high up in the wall behind the toilet stalls. Pretty small, only maybe a foot across, and the passage behind it visibly narrows to a couple inches tall a few feet in.
I usually end up going in there to brush my teeth before bed at around 2 in the morning, when nobody else is awake. Every single night when I'm in there, looking in the mirror, there comes a point where I have a sudden momentary jolt of panic because I'm suddenly certain, absolutely certain, that there is a face peering out of that grate behind me where there is absolutely no room for a human to be. And then I check and there's nothing there, of course.

Still... I'm going there now. Wish me luck.

It happens, paranoia, the dark, and human nature can fuck with you in the middle of the night. Hell I litterally run past any windows in my house at night becouse if I don't I get the feeling someone is watching me or something will smash through the window.

I was two miles from my house when I suddenly realized that I had a flat tire.  Since there's no turns between backing out of my driveway and getting on the highway, the effect it had on steering wasn't immediately obvious.  I went to a gas station, luckily had a dollar for change, and the piece of shit air-pump seemed to be letting out air faster than it was putting it in.  Or the tire was totally fucked.

I don't take my cell-phone with me to work; I was already a few miles from home; I absolutely had to get to work, a little late or otherwise; I couldn't risk my new (to me) car getting fucked up by a blowout on the highway.  I couldn't find a pay phone handy, so I weighed my options.  The air-pump finally seemed to have a real effect, if a crappy one, so I took a leap of faith and drove to work on the backroads at a very moderate speed.  Nothing happened.

When I left work, the walk across the parking lot was if anything even more nervewracking than the drive earlier, even with all the weird noises I kept hearing.  Tire was still fine.  Drove home safely.  I was terrified the whole time, and still am, because I really like that car and I'll still have to take it to the tire shop in the morning.

Yesterday I found out that the 'end of quarter project' assigned for my Interpersonal Communications class was due at midnight. Somehow, the assignment was given in week one, even though it was entirely about what we were working on in chapter 11. The idea, it seemed, was to give everyone ten weeks to work on the project. I never found it until I emailed my professor to ask where it was. At 9pm he responded by telling me it was in the week 1 box, and I promptly started working on it at terrifying speeds. With 20 minutes to spare, I turned it in.

I have tons of work due soon that I haven't started on but that's more stress than fear.

Also, I'm flying from Kentucky to Colorado and this whole TSA security thing has scared me a little. I definitely want to reduce my risk of getting cancer so I don't want to do the X-ray machine, but that enhanced pat-down thing is scary as well. I'm a white guy who hasn't been sexually assaulted so I'm basically in the lowest risk group, but man this still has some potential to go wrong.
