Stuff you were scared about as a kid (polls)

Bermuda Triangle. fully believed that no planes or ships went there, and was convinced it was some supernatural area where people disappeared if they entered. Reckon I was about 15 when I realized it was bullshit.

As a kid in the 80s you were almost convinced the world was going to end at any moment.

Thought everything would be fine, adults know what they’re doing, etc.

Shit scared of it now I’m an adult and it turns out things aren’t as easy as they were in the 90s.

What is ETA? Assuming not estimated time of arrival…

Ant poison. For some reason there was a tub of it left by our predecessors when we moved in. White powder stuff. Every time my mum made anything with flour in I was scared that she might use the wrong bag by mistake, as if everyone just has tons of ant poison lying around the kitchen by the food.

Haven’t set a poll up for this one. Realise that it’s a me thing
