It's funny to look back at all the stuff you were scared of as a kid, and laugh at how NOT-SCARY it all was. Except clowns. Those guys are just as creepy now as they were then.
Here are the six silliest things we were afraid of as kids, from a discussion yesterday on Reddit.com. Check 'em out . . .
2. The dark.
3. Kidnapping. The local news really feeds the fear on this one, and obviously it's a real thing that happens. But you don't learn until you're older that MOST kidnappings are usually one of the PARENTS taking the kid away.
4. What's underneath the bed or in the closet.
5. People in masks and costumes.
6. Escalators. Kids are sometimes afraid they'll get sucked in and eaten.
