The Top Ten

Being Buried Alive
Why is going to Hell first? That can't happen to you IN life, it could only happen to you AFTER life.
You're buried below ground in a coffin, no one is there, you will be starving and being dehydrated for the rest of your life, and If you had to go to the washroom REAL bad, unfortunately you can't go at all. This is why It is on the Top Ten List.
That's definitely the worst. It must hurt like hell.
[Newest]How about killing people? If I killed someone I would tell the police and commit suicide.

2Going to Hell
Yes is definitely the first, I hear about it burns fire, mad people running and abusing each other.. Really horrible and you see horrible things, and Satan next to you, the worst the pain and the suffering will be eternal!
There is suffering in life. Lots of suffering. But life is temporary. If you go to heaven your suffering is over forever. In hell, the suffering is permanent and much worse than suffering in life. In hell you can see the wicked, people burning, the devil, and demons. Hell is the worst place to go. Just believe in god, say prayers, be good, and fight against evil because it pains me when a human goes to this terrible place
I think you should capitalize God it is a sign of respect but I agree with you
Hell is the worst place to go ever.
[Newest]Because you can TOTALLY go to Hell when you're alive. Yep. That makes SO much sense.

3Losing a Parent
Losing a parent is like losing a part of you. Who could live without your parent?
Real things are worse than imaginary things like hell
Loosing parent is like loosing our grip while climbing a mountain. we don't get another chance to hold on
[Newest]Losing a parent is the kind of thing you will always try and forger, even though its burned in the back of your mind. You lose the person you look up to, and they die never getting to see you truly succeed.

4Lose a Child
I lost my 2 kids ages 3 and 5 and my wife of 8 years in a car accident when I was 29. That was 5 years ago now. I think the hardest part of my life now is.. When you have kids you feel a true meaning to your life accomplishments and a new kind of pride. I remember what that felt like. For the first 2 to 3 years I had this feeling of that I didn't know what to do with my self and where to go with my life I guess like will smith in the movie Seven Pounds but I didn't want to die like him in the movie. how I take it is. I'm just like an old person that lives to long and out lives there family but this all happen to me when I was in my late 20's so I guess its not the same. It sucks but has to happen to someone in life... there you go that's better. I feel bad for my parents most of all. Its hardest on them I think. The thought of there kid wakening up everyday to such a different life day after day.
Sorry to hear that. Don't worry your family is watching you from above being proud that you love them
I don't have any yet, I'm 21, but I think it's far worse than that imaginary and deluded "Hell" people are so afraid of. I guess I have a strong pre-developed paternal feeling.
Nothing in life to find your 18 year old child hanging from a rope in your garage from suicide. I love my parents but they know they have had a life. People that put their parents first have never I repeat never experienced the love of a child. Contractions as a new bearing mother and contractions as a mother in lose when your child has died.12 years on and I am still so sad. Some people have no experience in life and hopefully they don't have to experience what I have and am still going through it.
[Newest]This is just sad, funerals make me lay a tear

5Listen to Justin Bieber
Baby baby baby ooh SO ANNOYING
When I hear Justin Bieber I think I wish I was dead, so if dying is number two then listening to Justin Bieber should be number one
I know right! I'm like, sounds so annoying. Wish someone will turn that thing off...
[Newest]Baby baby oh shut up already

6Going to Jail for Life
If you were in jail for life, that would be sad and you should come home to see your house and family again.
That has to be a hard feeling after hearing you will be in jail for life being under control all the time with no freedom.


You can't go to jail for life. You can go to prison for life though
[Newest]If you go in for life it's probably your own fault

This doesn't make sense, we're talking about LIFE!
I had to go to therapy after watching 1000 Ways to Die. I'm not kidding, death scarred me. Murder, Cancer, Aids, Suicide, Heart Attack, and that's to name a few. And listen to this, you don't know when, or where, or how it's gonna happen. It's terrifying. But the thing that makes me think again, prove me wrong atheists, but I imagine walking side by side by Jesus Christ. My savior. That helped me a lot thinking about that.


This is not what people like.
[Newest]We shouldn't really think about it. I mean we all make a choice. When our time comes we'll go somewhere.

8Getting Raped
Especially for girls... And maybe men sometimes... :(


This would be horrible. Just thinking about it makes me feel unpleasant.
Its torture. Little girls, or anyone, should not be abused for sex. They don't get a say, and it puts them at risk for pregnancy, or a disease like AIDS, even for young girls. Plus, it would be you to explain it to your parents.


[Newest]Especially if you have aids, and you will feel funny when you don't want it too

9Seeing the Love of Your Life With Another
I often see my love at first sight trying to get with easy hoes. It kills me because I know that he'd rather have those kind of girls.
Pretty hard to take - gut- wrenching, soul-destroying, mind-numbing pain of the worst kind. But he'll get used to it!


That would be terrible and especially if you changed everything about you just to be with them. Also they rather be with another and you just feel sad because you changed just to be with them and they throw it back at your face.
[Newest]I know what you mean.:(


10Dying Alone
It's better to die alone than dying among the people who make you feel alone.


I'am so scarred of dying alone! No one should ever die alone.
Dying alone is very bad but the worst is to life alone that is pretty bad having no friends no family that is worse than any thing in life.
[Newest]And this is one of the reasons why you should never get stranded

The Contenders

11Getting Cancer
I have Cancer. It really does ruin your life...
You will one day beat cancer if you take the right medications right away. If you procrastinate, the effects are worse. If it is unbeatable, I feel sorry for you. I fear such thing as well.


I can only hope they find a cure for it.
Note to other 5th graders:I might be the class clown, but puberty class actually was important, because if you don't follow the rules of puberty, you get cancer, but if your a baby and you were born with cancer, I don't know what to say
[Newest]Why is this lower that listening to Justin beiber

12Be a Virgin Forever
I think that's what happened to Richard Branson...


I'm not afraid of that. I always tell myself "what does it mean to be married? What does it mean to give your life to someone both physically and mentally? " now this isn't for everyone, but I just ask myself wouldn't it be boring after a while, while I'm still married?
Who cares? It would be nice to find a partner and all, but is not getting ny REALLY worse than being buried alive, or going to hell. Being a Virgin forever is not fun, but its no like your being buried alive or going to hell... right?


[Newest]I would hate life if I had to marry.

13Nobody Likes You
Secondary school sucked. Lots of memories I do not care for. Meeting someone from that secondary school - not nice. Try someone answering their phone pretending their daughter was calling when their phone was black and their speech was all over the place. Another. My niece told a friend of my neighbour I was strange and no one in the family liked me. THINK I QUALIFY FOR NUMBER 21
I was bullied at primary school but no one cares about me in secondary school.

I have no friends. Unless my sister counts.
This lasted from my nursery days up until first year of secondary school. It sucks like hell


[Newest]Nobody likes me it's natural.

14Your Pet Dies
My tip is give your pet a great life so when it does you will be proud of yourself for giving a animal a happy life


My sisters chicken died on my friends birthday. She hates that friend. Also my turtle died and they buried her under concrete when they were doing construction.

I can't live to see the day June dies 😭😭😭😭


My cat is my life. We both grew up together and I love her as part of the family. I can't even think about her being gone because it brings tears to my eyes. If only cats lived as long as people :(
[Newest]This is what happened to my cat, at least she reached up to a record breaking 20 years old, and she still looked like a 4 year old cat at that time

15Painful Death
This is number 1, it's so scary thinking of everything... Like fires, murders, shark attacks, crocodile attacks, swarms, drowning, shot, stabbed, poisoned, diagnosed with a disease, falling to death, freeze to death, being buried alive, exploded by a bomb, and a tons of more
I'm going to be honest this isn't my number 1 for me, but it's still horrible.
I would have a quick painless death

16Sleeping With Justin Bieber
*refuses to think about this*
The next morning, I'll wake up in hell!
My girlfriend would be so pissed that I cheated on her with the worst singer of all time.


[Newest]I can tell you one thing,I don't want to become his wife.🙅

17Being Forever Alone
I was always alone. I have schizophrenia and one of the things I do is isolate myself, I was without friends and family didn't care much. It was like hell and was tormented with pain. I think the worst thing is t be always without someone to share life with.
This is already a slot, but it's rephrased.

18Get Bullied
This is very bad search up Amanda Todd in the YouTube search bar and you'll see how serious this is. I was bullied from 2011-2013. And had to move schools because of it and now I have another bully and I have to move again. Out of state. She called me fat, stupid, dimwit, gg (goody goody), etc. like I said now I have to move again because this kid was older than me and could really hurt me. Thanks a lot my secret bully. (In sarcastic voice) yay can't wait to move.
Really. Justin Bieber is worst then bullying? People are really taking the JB jokes way too far. JB should be at the bottom of the list and this should be number 5.
I was bullied by a boy who was the same age as me at Primary School, from year 2, to year 3, year 4, year 5 and finally year 6... And the stupid horrible Primary School headteacher and teachers did nothing about it!
[Newest]This is not bad, every time the bully says something, just make a joke about it, and keep doing it until he goes away, but don't be awkward

19Going Blind
You can't see anything anymore. Your wife friends and everyone you ever saw. You need someone to help you go everywhere
I actually am blind with an assistant reading all of this for me the keys have braille but I can type really fast
I would be so terrified.


[Newest]I can not go blind, I can never see again, just get eye surgery, sure you need a shot, but you can at least see, besides you will be asleep so it's not painful

20Being Executed
Now that's just depressing.
I would hate that.. just knowing you're gonna die in a few seconds:in the waiting room someone calling people one by one. a few seconds after they go the crowd go crazy then the next person.
Then he says its you next to the guillotine.
That (of course) is not how people are executed these days but that is a huge fear of mine.
This would especially be bad if you were executed for something you didn't do.
[Newest]It would suck just waiting, knowing you're dead
