You know what scares me?

<p>Just little things, like how some people are going to MIT and don't know that "alot" isn't a word.</p>

<p>Just...</p>

<p>little things like that.</p>

<p>yah. I guess getting into prestigious colleges isn't always an indicator of vast intelligence.</p>

<p>You know what scares me? Plane crashes. I fly quite a lot, and every time I get on board I think about how terrible it would be if the plane crashed. It's shooting down the runway at 500 mph, maybe it doesn't get off the ground properly and slams into the tarmac, most people aren't killed in the initial crash but you're trapped in your seat with your legs broken and get burned up in the ensuing fire. Or maybe when you're 40,000 feet up there's a catastrophic engine failure and you start to spiral out of control, it takes an eternity to hit the ground or ocean and everybody's screaming and going nuts, you're saying goodbye to the people next to you.</p>

<p>Well, yeah. That's a little scary, too.</p>

<p>The grammar scares me a little bit more, though.</p>

<p>Strong pointless thread.</p>

<p>That kind of scares me, but then I just try to convince myself that it'll be just like LOST and I'll be stuck on a beautiful island full of highly attractive and ethnically diverse people. Sans Others.</p>

<p>Eh, I see nothing wrong with a non-sequitor thread every once in awhile.</p>

<p>Nah, a plane can fly with only one engine, and glide for a good period of time without them at all. Worst thing that could happen is if anyone who can land a plane goes unconscious; or if an out-of-control ballistic missile hits you. </p>

<p>Did you know that there are people in my school who can't add without the aid of their fingers? And to think that an entrance test is required for acceptance.</p>

<p>you know what scares me? genocide.</p>

<p>but hey, improper grammar is a pretty unnerving too</p>

<p>You know what scares me? College shootings. Good thing they sell bullet proof backpacks now.</p>

<p>You know what scares me? My horror movie-based imagination. When I go ice-skating, I think about falling and someone's blades cutting my fingers off. Or long, bony green hands grabbing my ankles when I'm walking at night. Or a chopped off head in my closest. A hand in my drawer.</p>

<p>:(</p>

<p>You know what scares me? Clowns :o</p>

<p>Your mom scares me.</p>

<p>Just noting that commercial planes usually are traveling around 200 mph when they take off xP</p>

<p>Ditto on the "finding heads in closet, chopping off fingers with ice skates" thing!</p>

<p>Same wtih drowning. Can you imagine how long that must seem, being without air, awaiting you death, scratching at the surface?!! gaahh! </p>

<p>Or free falling. Same sitch. What would you think about as you are spiraling through the air, or in that last moment before you meet the earth...?</p>

<p>spiders frighten me :( (<em>shudders at the thought them</em>)</p>

<p>People in general frighten me at times.</p>

<p>I second that. Except add in deranged serial killers to the mix. Also freaked out by very large or grubby bugs.</p>

<p>Speaking of the reference to MIT by the OP, I got some mail from MIT where a big part of the letter was cut off, and the other half just completely white. From the half of the letter I could read it said to tear the bottom off and send it back to request info, but there was no envelope included with it.</p>

<p>I suppose that mistake probably wasn't on part of anyone affiliated with MIT, but probably some company hired to send out the college mail, but still . . .</p>

<p>i get scared by raindrops on roses and whiskers kittens, not cats, but kittens.</p>
