    What or who currently is it (as in any person/s, or any thing/s) that seriously or humorously scares the hell out of you the most and why ?

    Now, what scares me most is the upcoming A-level exams, which will start at the end of this month. I can't predict what results I'll get, unlike the public exams that I sat for 2 years ago in which I could really predict the grades that I could be able to get. Also, time is running short and I'm afraid I can't finish revising everything before the exams come. And the challenge of having 6 hours examination in one day is scary too. 3 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the afternoon, the only break is the 2 hours lunch break.

    Timed exams scare me the most. They make me nervous. I'm a slow guy. I eat slow, I walk slow, I talk slow...

    I'm a guy that talks his time strolling slowly through life. :wink:

    The person that scares me the most is any political leader of the USA.

    The three things that scare me the most are work, competition and violence, all of which contrive against the creation of a truly liberated society. What's scarier is that things seem to be getting worse in this regard.

    My daughter scares me. She has no fear and feels little pain. She is always reckless, and enjoys terrifying me with her stunts. I have been aging at double-rate for the last 7 years.

    What scares me is the excessive thirst of power of some politicians
    Also, its fault of scruples in some aspects
    In my region, the advisor (J.L. Carod-Rovira) of our president (P. Maragall) has recently been forced to resign of his position, after was discovered that he was in secret negotiations with the terrorist group ETA. I prefer not to give the exact number of murders that ETA has performed in my country--is scary.

    Wolves with bees in their mouths. So every time they bark, bees fly out. Imagine them chasing you and you will understand.

    Thanx a lot Simpsons.

    I know a lot of people are scared of syringes. Now with so many diseases, even more reason to be scared of them.

    A number 1 fear is actually Public Speaking.

    Which I hate doing.

    I fear not taking my medicines. I also fear aptly named "terrorism" and how my government seems to exacerbate it, especially for us here near DC.

    I'm shopping for a new house in the DC area. I'm thinking of asking the realtor, "I'd like something convenient to downtown, but outside the 10 megaton blast radius. Oh, and can you show me some prevailing wind patterns?"

    I feared seeing the "views" (edit) on this thread holding at 222 so I changed it to 223. Whew.

    As a junior in high school I took 6 AP tests, which amounts to 18 hours of official testing (answering questions) and about 24 hours of actual testing (answering questions and filling out paperwork) over the course of a week and a half. They were all academic subjects, too. I was also almost drop-dead sick for the last 3 tests, too. I think I slept for about 18 hours after the last one. Yeah, tests are fun.

    Afraid? I don't believe in fear.
