21 Getting Arrested When You Don't Break the Law

A man in my area was thrown behind bars for a murder that he didn't commit. He was sentenced to life, but got out in 22 years time.

Yep, a lot of people are thrown into jail, prosecuted, and treated unfair mostly based on their race, gender,and skin color. I myself haven't been to lucky having a person threaten to call the cops on me since I lied and joked about being "Russian"

22 War

Millions of people die over dramatic reasons. - Powerfulgirl10

God is above war in a scary list? What the heck?

Yes because people you love could die

NK can hit the central United States with their misiles now. And if they get smart enough, end the world. - Lucretia

23 Other People

They created SCARY MOVIES that will get you to hope you make it to daylight. - booklover1

Humans are the scariest thing on Earth. Pretty much anyone could kill you in a hundred ways at any given moment because they feel like it. Humans are capable of a lot of horrible things.

I just trust Jesus and that he will keep me safe from evil forces.

I have lost all faith in humanity...

That's why now I fear them...
Humans...why do you have to be so cruel now days?
Last time there was no racism, feminists, LGBTs, memes, Gore horror movies
And horrifying 5-year olds which ruin every single game we love...

24 Making other people sad/scared because of you
25 Noises 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!

My house is in the wood and it scares me because you can hear someone walking outside when there is no one out there

Are you sitting in the woods at night... that sounds cool actually - Lucretia

Nah, I find it funny! Me and my stepdad were in a hot tub together in a forest house (my mum got out because she hated the hot tub) and we were making up jokes about zombies and ghosts and trying to creep eachother out. It was really fun =)

26 Xbox One

More like the Call of Duty kid fanbase.

What? How can you be scared of a game console? - Powerfulgirl10

What the hell?

I love xbox

27 Demons Watching You

"Whom shall I fear? I know who goes before me, I know who stands behind. The God of angel armies is always by my side. The One who reigns forever, He is a friend of mine. The God of angel armies is always by my side." -Whom Shall Fear, Chris Tomlin

A song that always gets me through thoughts like these - keycha1n

Just looking at their face gave me chills.

I'm not afraid of this to be honest. Because I know God is watching over me. I know Jesus is scaring the demons off and my guardian angel is with me. No reason to be scared of them if Jesus is with you.

God isn't watching me, nor is Jesus, nor is anyone because I don't believe in any of that fantasy stuff - Lucretia

28 Loneliness

I'm not scared of this, but I do hate it. I'm pretty much the only girl in fifth grade who gets into fights with the other girls over a pointless game they play (where they run around and scream their heads off) and the Vice principal calling my parents. I'm not even trying to be mean, I'm just stating my opinion (but I might be doing it wrong since I sound mean when doing it.) - Powerfulgirl10

" true, I get scared of everything. I feel things around me, People think I'm crazy. But I see things passing by me. ( Well everyone. )

Being alone is good then other people can't judge or hurt you - Lucretia

I do enjoy being bymyself. I'm more of that independent tomboy.

29 Thunder and Lightning

They look so freak ing bad@ss, but getting near can be pretty terrifying. A lightning struck right in front of me one time. I'm lucky I'm inside my house - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

I'm really tall this tearfys me

30 Creepy Crawlies

Spiders terrify me. Maybe it's the eyes or the legs but if I see a spider I will scream my head off.

Kids call me retarded for not brushing off house spiders. Actually sliders rarely bite Pepe unless they feel threatened. Nobody can call me stupid for not killing an animal who's just trying to get by. I am a weird kid because I love anything that freaks people out.

They freak the crap out of me mainly because of the legs they are long and freaky but when they crawl on you it feels weird I have had an arachnid climb on me it was a tick

"Bad@ss crawlies" suit them more - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

31 Jeff the Killer Jeff the Killer Jeff the killer is a creepypasta usually accompanied by a picture of a white face looking in to the camera smiling in an unsettling manner . The creepypasta is also usually accompanied by the term "Go to sleep" .

My friend showed me his face during a sleepover once. The other guy ran away while I put my face in a pillow

I'm not scared of him. Someone literally put a dog face on him. - Powerfulgirl10

The Screamer needs to go to sleep. So annoying and loud! - computerfan0

Pffft! Can't believe people are afraid of him - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

32 Slithering Snakes

I actually got a chance to observe a snake when I was little because I found in it my house, but I was a coward back then, and I made my family kill that little guy. I don't think I'm gonna get another chance... - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

Not that I think so, but some people get so freaked out (I actually love snakes and animals and I simply can't understand why people get so scared)

Some are poisonous and cause a painful death... Avoiding them is just natural instinct! - VADERtheIMPALER

Some are cool, like and Ekans/Arbok/Seviper etc. but only from a distance.

33 Having People Hate You

Humans are social creatures, we are not equipped to survive alone. Laws are meant to protect the individual but they are implemented by people. What if people hated you so much that they stopped thinking of you as human and not only refused to help you in any way but they felt justified in doing anything they liked to you?

My friends at school might be neutral to me because of the fights we get into, but I might be wrong. Most people n my class like me, but only a few people hate me. I do not want to be hated so much that people neglect me or don't care about me. Because that would be scary. - Powerfulgirl10

Some people hate me. I don't know why and I don't try to like them because they hate me for stupid stiff - Lucretia

I don't care if people hate me. They can hate me all they want, but I always know I'm better than them. - LordDovahkiin

34 Harrowing Heights

I'm not scared of heights, but it makes me paranoid when I hear someone falls off a high place or when people are at buildings and lean over glass railings or whatever they're called. If it's just the height of a house or when you're swinging it's okay, but a skyscraper or mountain might freak people out. - Powerfulgirl10

I am afraid I will trip or the ground will break or my brothers going to push me. I will always try to stay on the second floor or lower and hate bleachers - Lucretia

I hate being really high up. No thank you. I have a fear because if I stand near an edge, I'm afraid someone's going to push me. - Pegasister12

I feel like I will fall straight down ahhh!

Worst thing happening to anyone.

36 Snakes Snakes Snakes are elongated, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears.

There kinda cool in my opinion, but I understand how people could be scared of them. Kinda like spiders, some people think there cool, some people would like to rip their heads off. - SansTheComic

Snake are cool I remember when I was five years old I got to hold a milk snake that was six years ago

I understand snakes can be terrifying, but they're twice on this list... - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX

I tried to kill one before. - Lucretia

37 Mirrors

I know totally! Mirrors are creepy! What if something's in there? What if Bloody Mary is real? You never know...

" I had a video camera, around my mirror on the hallway, and it feels very creepy seeing things move around. When no one there. "

I heard two of my friends tried the Bloody Mary trick in the boys bathroom and the lights went off then back on. It literally scared them. - Powerfulgirl10

My closet door is in front of my mirror and I am so scared I always keep my closet door closed - Lucretia

38 Hearing Voices

The feeling when you are home alone, but you hear somebody calling your name.

If it's voices in your head...I always listen to it...

But if it's a ghostly like one that everyone can hear, scream like you've never scream before :/

I guess what I'm truly scared of is losing a grip on reality. It's a scary prospect for me, but it may be why I'm so fascinated by the mind. - keycha1n

I hear voices sometimes. Well more just footstep noises and tapping noises... - Lucretia

39 Anonymous

Please don't think I'm weird, but I think the anonymous masks are HILARIOUS. The moustache, the eyes, and those cheekbones though! Sorry, but these people are pretty funny.

40 Drowning

One of the SCARIEST! Just imagine not being able to breathe and struggling

Losing air, suffering, and being stuck in water is pretty horrific. - Powerfulgirl10

That's why I stayed away from water... my dad died that way - Lucretia

It would feel bad
