4184 Wide_Eyed_Snorlax I was feeding ducks when i was 5, one of their bills made the slightest contact with my hand and I still remember my death gurgle like it had torn my arm from its socket.
4235 GeekPunk00 I swallowed a nickel when I was about four and I freaked out and acted like I was dying. My Dad only made it worse when he said if I waited long enough it would come out as a dollar.
2195 princess-captain My parents took a one story high pole and made a fake reindeer head to attach to the top of it. Complete with a light up nose. Every Christmas eve after dinner and some games my parents would say. "Rudolph will be here soon to check to see if you're asleep for Santa! Better get in bed before he catches you!" I remember running to my room and laying under my blankets. My sisters liked it but it terrified me. Seeing the faint red glow of the nose reflect on the wall and hearing the head knock against the window. It gave me nightmares. I know my parents did it to make it magical for us, but still... To this day reindeer make me anxious and I am afraid of windows at night.
375 BobT21 73 y.o, so this is dated. When I was a kid I saw a movie *Horrors of the Black Museum."* It featured a pair of binoculars which had spikes pop out of the eye pieces into the skull of the person using them. Ever since then... binoculars. When I was a lookout in the Navy I couldn't help testing the binoculars carefully at the start of each watch. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCEV51nlemM
1674 ShockerKhan2N1 Flushing the toilet. I had a nightmare where a witch came out of the toilet when I flushed it, so any time I went to the bathroom I'd wash my hands and open the door before flushing then fleeing the bathroom. Edit: can't believe there are so many others out there! Feel like I just found the weirdest support group lol
3324 --99-- When I played Sonic the Hedgehog and the drowning theme started playing. The fact that it slowly increases speed as you get closer to dying is scary as hell, man.
1484 oliviahaulani Furbys. For some reason my sister and I had a few of them and they would always turn on by themselves while in my closet and it scared the shit out of us
1454 Meowchies I was deathly afraid of the 80's song "Maneater." The lyrics had me thinking there was a woman out on my street eating actual men. The lyrics "Whoa-oa here she comes... watch out boy she'll chew you up" kept me up many nights watching out my window :\
1160 StevenSanders90210 Cars with one headlight. I saw an Unsolved Mysteries when I was a kid about a woman who was driving and a car with one headlight pulled up next to her and shot her through the eyes. Then the guy who did it, pulled over and pretended to help her and took her to his house and raped her for days. So every time after that when a car with one headlight would be near us, I would be scared shitless
609 Mypopsecrets I had a care bear plastic coin bank that was about three feet tall. One night I had a dream it drowned me in the bathtub, I was terrified of it afterwards.
517 saxonprotestor I thought if the colors blue, yellow, and red were used next to each other on a computer, something very, very dangerous and demonic would happen. I vaguely remember using a coloring program where the tutorial for the "undo" funcion used an example of a picture filled in with those 3 colors with a big X over it. For some reason, I thought it was a warning to never use those colors together OR ELSE! This was before I could read and when the inner workings of technology were mystifying to me. The only reason I remember this specific fear is that I sometimes still have nightmares about it and avoid that color combo almost superstitiously haha
245 Essiggurkerl I though if I accidently swallowed the tiniest piece of egg shell I would get an appendictis and need surgery. Eating soft-boiled eggs was quite stressing.
794 KillTheIdols Apparently as a baby, I was deathly scared of grass. I just sat crying with my hands raised until I was off.
597 forskin_curtains When I was.. I think 11? I was playing The Sims (first edition, I think) alone in a dark room while my mom was making dinner.. I had my guy look out the telescope at night and he got abducted by aliens. I have always been terrified of Aliens, and this got me so scared I instantly ran out the room to my mom and refused to go back to the computer. I didn't play Sims for awhile after that. My character never came back either. Edit: aw crap my most highly rated comment is about me getting scared on The Sims. Thank you guys!
1312 UrNameGoneBeCthulu I put the poptart wrapper in the microwave and thought I was going to die.
837 wow_muchkaethy Angela Anaconda. Had really bad nightmares from that show that are still stuck in my head. It was horrible.
188 ArenVaal When I was a kid, my dad's stepfather had a velvet painting of the devil sitting on the toilet and smoking a cigarette hung on the wall in his basement. My cousin and I were terrified of it.
957 Darkpoulay Lobsters. For some reason I used to be afraid of them, like they're roaming somewhere ready to pinch the fuck out of me. When I was really small my mom had to talk me out of fearing lobsters under my bed.
344 Skypian Car washes, it would literally send me into blind panic until I was about 7. I was so terrified, I once actually broke out of my booster seat and started hiding under the car seat all while screaming that "its gonna get us!" Edit: Sorry, automatic car washes. I for some odd reason liked the manual washes just cause it was my mom running it and I guess I trusted her or something... I was a weirdly timid kid compared to who I am now.
325 AlcobolicsAnonymous My grandparents' false teeth, which they kept in glass containers on their bathroom counter. I thought they could remove all their body parts like that, and I was horrified of the day I'd see a hand or something in a jar on their counter.
154 AssumeTheFetal The coffee pot in the kitchen at night with the lights off. The red buttons reminded me of eyes as the movie e.t. for some reason. I sprinted past it to get to my room I dunno how many times.
567 Gorblim Shower drains. I covered them for years after seeing the first IT.
