People Are Sharing "Normal" Things That Are Actually Terrifying, And There Are No Lies Detected
WAIT A MINUTE...
The other day, redditor u/Mangled_inside asked the internet: "What is something that you find terrifying that everyone finds normal?" Fellow Reddit users came through with some hilarious AND serious answers — and honestly, they're not wrong.
Here are the interesting results:
1. "Doctors being able to cut open your body and put it back together."
3. "Honestly, pressure hydraulics. How anyone can be complacent around hot oil at 3,000 PSI is baffling to me."
4. "Space...I mean like...WTF? Most people are like space, yeah planets and sh*t. But hell, it just goes and goes."
5. "The ocean."
6. "I sometimes get this weird fear that the bridge I’m crossing will suddenly collapse. So, I think I have a mild but rare case of gephyrophobia."
7. "The Thomas the Tank Engine theme song."
8. "Debt (student loans, car notes, mortgages, credit cards)."
9. "Anybody that can consistently get themselves to wake up 10–15 minutes before their alarm is supposed to go off."
10. "Lightning. I had been very close to a few strikes as a child and was subsequently terrified of it. I've become less utterly terrified of it in the last 10 years or so, but I'll still be fighting off a panic attack if I have to be outside during a storm."
11. "Switching lanes on the freeway."
12. "Getting old."
13. "The Hamburger Helper hand. It doesn’t make design or logical sense. It’s a glove with the face in the palm, so it’s not functional. Frightening."
14. "Social media. I've lived long enough to see it fundamentally change society and the people in it. Not for the better."
15. "Time. It's basically the measure of decay."
16. "Pregnancy. I mean, just stop and think about the whole concept for a second…"
17. And finally: "Parents who make social media accounts for their baby, then proceed to comment as if their baby is replying back to everyone."
