The Top Ten

1
Death
What is after death, there is nothing? What would it feel like, eternal nothingness? I mean, does anyone know what nothing feels like?
I think death does scare allot of people because they don't really for sure know where there going and that is scary
One of the worlds biggest mystery, even with trillions of people witnessing it. What is it like after death? Darkness? Spending the rest of your life as a ghost? Maybe being reborn in a different world? You can only find out when you die. But you won't be able to tell anyone what it is after death.

2Not Going to Heaven
Not getting to go to heaven would be terrible.
Think like this:
Essentially, you, say, do things like drugs, getting drunk, abusing people, being really evil.
What do you get for it? A trial, where EVERYBODY who you insulted, abused or harmed would go against you.
Think of it like a normal trial, but about fifty to one hundred prosecutors, no defense, and a judge who had informed you, all throughout your life, about the inevitable trial he would judge you in.

And at the end?
When all is said and done?
"Lucifer, we have another one for you."

Out of the depths of hell comes satan himself.
Picking you up, he carries you back down to hell, where you will forever suffer.
As you are being taken away, you scream "YOUR HONOUR! How could you be so merciless? "
"What are you on about? I gave you ALL my mercy, yet you threw it aside.
You laughed in my face, saying death would never come, that you would not be sent to hell.
Good bye..."
The afterlife might not be as scary as most people think. In my opinion, people are not sentenced to heaven or hell. I think people just end up in either heaven or hell based on how close they are to God, how sorry they are for their sins, and whether they accept God's love. If they let sin overpower them so much that it tears them away from God, then they may end up in hell. If they accept the fact that they are sinners and try hard to move closer to God and away from sin, then they may end up in heaven. Besides, I think hell is more of a state people go into as a result of rejecting God than an actual place. If God is a merciful, loving father-figure who never stops forgiving humanity for its sins, why would he willfully send someone to hell?
What if it was your wish to go to heaven? What if you died with your friend and you saw him go up the staircase to heaven before you being dropped to hell? Chest about the opposite? You would never see him again. So sad.

3The Dark
I really do get scared in the dark but I guess it is because of some nasty people I could bump into? Too many crimes reported on the media... What a world is turning into...
Well, being generally scared of the dark is only reasonable if you're three years old, but in a dark forest, or a dark cave, you don't know what could happen next.

That one's really common and it scares a lot of people! Especially me!

4Being Hurt by the Person You Love
Of course it will be hurt if the person that we loved with all our heart and trusted to care us for the rest of our life played with our love. They played our love just like card 'touch ^^ go'. If I face this man in my life, I think I will kill him if I can do like that
IT really hurts when we love a person very very much and when they leave us it really hurts and the person who is hurted find him away from the world and things that he have lost every thing and then he tries to commit suicide because for him his love was his life.
This happens to me a lot :-(

5Being Embarrassing In Front of a Huge Amount of People
Come on. Death? First? Nono, being embarrassed in front of a large group is much worse than death, believe me. You actually have to deal with it and live with it after (ironic, isn't it? )
Yes. Always. I am always watching out for my 'friends' so that they can't embarrass me laugh out loud
That's why I don't want to be on television.

6Being Sexually Assaulted
I for one, have this as my biggest fear, simply because it has already happened to me, I am a 16 year old girl, and at the age of 15 I was molested by a 42 year old man that happened to be my dad's so called "best friend" nobody should have to go through this, at all, no kids, teenagers, adults, nobody.
The government should shoot their privates off with an executioner pistol. That'll teach them.
To the other commenter...
I know we're strangers, but you have my undying support.

7Failing
Although death may be the end of our lives and that most of us don't want that to happen already, we all know that it will happen in the future. We all dislike failure. We feel annoyed and frightened when you didn't achieve your goal. Whether the failure was losing your team and feeling hated, working hard/ spending money for nothing, or losing a partner/failing him or her, we fear it more than death. We know we can stop it or not make it happen (unlike death), but we feel so horrible in making that mistake that changed your life/ or won't ever forget for all your life. This is the #1 fear human has.
Just imagining me repeating a grade/class in school...oh my gosh..makes me freak out!
I don't know about anyone but no scary movie can compare to what my dad will do if I fail... It's like digging my own grave.

13Public Speaking
One vote and it suddenly jumped from last (31) to current position (22).
Laugh out loud!
I had to add this? Comedian Jerry Seinfeld's comment about public speaking says it all:

“According to most studies, people's number one fear is public speaking. Number two is death. Death is number two. Does that sound right? This means to the average person, if you go to a funeral, you're better off in the casket than doing the eulogy. ”

14Demons Watching You
Just looking at their face gave me chills.

15Clowns
They wear too much make up
I love clowns but all my friends hate them
Ther are 2 things that I didn't like clowns and mines

16Spiders
Spiders are the scariest things ever! Last year (In fourth grade) I went on a field trip with my P.A.C. (Program for academic challenge) friends, and we were going on a nature walk. We were picking things off the trail, and putting them in little containers so we could look at them through microscopes. So, my friend Emma (Who like isn't afraid of anything) picks up this spider, and wants me to hold the container open so she could put it in. I thought she might just leave it because I was obviously like 'no way! ' but she didn't. She found someone else, and got the spider in the container. Then, when we got back from our 'nature walk' we got microscopes. Emma put the spider under the microscope, and for some reason, I was brave enough to look at it. IT TOTALLY FREAKED ME OUT. There were huge eyes, so many legs, and it was hairy! The spider even blinked! It was the scariest thing I've ever seen. (Sorry my story was kind of long)
I had a dream last night. Scary as hell. I mean, the spiders' asses were the size of an ashtray or like, a plate! I was scared to death. But, nonetheless, I woke up and saw online that this meant I am a dominant female figure, or motherly. Something like that. But, I still get scared if I see a giant spider in my room...
SPIDERS ARE JUST PLAIN CREEPY! Every time I see one I scream like a little baby! One time I was sleeping and woke up to a spider right above me and it was a big spider! THEY ARE CREEPY!

21Pooping Your Pants
Could happen after your 40

22The Dentist
I am SUPER scared of the dentist. I suppose I shouldn't be as all he is doing is trying to help. But it's not a completely irrational fear. After all, the sharp tools and stuff he pokes in your mouth could be seriously dangerous if he makes just one tiny mistake...
The dentist scares me so much when I get told were going my heart just drops everything about freaks me out this shouldn't be number nine of the list it should be number one I HATE THE DENTIST!

23Noises In the Woods
There's a woods quite near to my house. In the Summer, me and my friends take our bikes up to the woods and eat our picnic in this little clearing. It doesn't seem to bother my friends, but all the noises in there really creep me out and I often end up leaving before them!
Why would you be in the woods Anyway

24Justin Bieber's Music
I don't personally like Justin Bieber, but everybody has to admit he has talent. His music may not be your kind of thing, but to be SCARED of it is kinda stupid.
It makes me want to puke!
I'm not scared of his music, I'm disgusted by his music.

28Blackouts
I'm absolutely scared of blackouts

29Sex
Because it can be painful

30Uncanny Valley
You know. That feeling you get when you see something and realize it isn't human? It's pretty creepy. But no one knows what it's called.

31Not Hitting Puberty

32The Unknown
When something is unknown to us we see it as sinister and horrifying: What lies hidden in the dark, what others may think of us, when we don't know how what we do will turn out for example. People are always afraid of what they do not understand.
This should be in the top ten. Mostly people are only scared of the dark because what might come out is unknown. It's simply a terrifying thing, as you have no control or power over what happens. Therefore, people tend to be scared of things like the dark or their future because it is all unknown.
Oh, yes! The future and the unknown terrifies the life out of me! I am a girl with big ambitions, and the thought of failing to achieve those ambitions just makes me shudder.

33Tarantulas
They say they're not going to bite, but if it's 3 times the size of ANY arachnid, I'm not going to take any chances with that thing.

34Scorpions
They sting with venom that can kill a fully growen man

35Phones
I hate it when people call me all the time. They always need something!

36Never Getting Married
I just want to say one thing - getting married doesn't matter. At the end of the day, it is just making a big, scary commitment. Like making a massive promise that you can never break, unless you're going to pay money for a divorce. You might meet the right person, but don't be afraid or upset if they don't propose (or if you don't feel ready to. ) Loving someone should make your bond strong enough for you not to need a legal binding.

37Sleep Paralysis
This is absolutely terrifying... I usually get it waking up from a nightmare, so I'm lying there half still in my nightmare and trying to get out, but I can't move and see shadows next to me...

Yeah, it's scary.

38Farting
It can scare you a lot sometimes

39Elevators
I hate those because you can get stuck on one and it stops working that is why I hate elevators because I do

40Ghosts
Sometimes that move things around and they make you want to feark out so scary

41End of the World
People are more scared of other stuff than the world ending

It would be more scary of the world stops and evey one dies

42Nicki Minaj's Music
Stupid hoe is the scariest song I ever heard.

43Portable Toilets

44Leeches

45Small Spaces

46Germs

47Putting a Needle Inside of You
Afraid of those air bubbles

48Dislocation of Bones
Eww they look disgusting and completely shock me and make me feel sick when I see one! Also, they must hurt super bad and make you feel sick!

49Puberty
Because it comes for you

50Bipolar Lows
I wrote a story called The Crying Mirror (by Ryan Murphy if you want to look it up) that is basically an allegory for my fear that one day I will go into a depression and it will never end. Being depressed I have gotten used to, the idea that it will never stop terrifies me.
When you are feeling so very happy and content with the world and the you can feel that hollowness before you go on a downward spiral.

81God Being a Dumbass

82Mirrors
I might sound like a retard but this is what mirrors seem like to me: a demention to a didfferent dimention. Only one way tthough
And I don't think people really have reflections but that they are just second dimention usses and they are waiting to attack us. When I look into mirrors sometimes and my reflection isn't there! I hope I'm not actually a vampire... Sorry I'm only 11 so I don't really make sense.
... BUT REMEMBER THIS! MIRRORS ARE EVIL!
I know totally! Mirrors are creepy! What if something's in there? What if Bloody Mary is real? You never know...
Mirrors are portals to Hell, where there are all your worst fears trapped inside the glass.
