Forums - General Discussion - What is the most scariest realistic thought that you believe will come true?

Becoming so old that I can barely walk or take care of myself. Nothing else scares me really. Not even scared of dying. I also not scared of diseases because I know the secret to not get cancer or anything like that.

I really couldn't care less for the planet as I wont be here 60 years from now so I really don't care about global warming or if half the planet gets destroyed by an asteroid, as long as its fine where I live.

The most realistic scariest thing I believe in is the United States will be hit with a nuclear bomb. I hope this doesn't happen obviously, but unfortunately I do think we are going to get hit by one in our lifetime. I don't know which country or terrorist group would do it, but I feel it is the inevitable. There is no way these countries are spending billions of dollars and putting this much time and effort just for fun.

Lets be realistic, that has never happen, very unlikely that it will. In fact no one has used nuclear bombs on population in almost 60 years. And every year the defense systems get better at detecting and deflecting stuff.

You haven't been living very long on this planet, have you?



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

That change is inevitable



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

Don't let con merchants fool you, there is no such secret. You can of course take proactive steps to reduce your risk, but there's no guarantees in life.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

The United States government is the world's only terrorist group ballsy enough to bomb/attack the United States of America as they've done it before you know, any other country or group that dares to attack the US does so with the US government's permission.

As for what i believe, is that people are increasingly becoming more ignorant and backwards thinking and behavior is becoming normalized while logical thinking and reasonable actions is shamed upon or outright attacked. 

If you're a Tulsi supporter like I am, you basically already believe this and are seeing this play out in real time XD.

But as far as the topic.. Hmmm, I think I remember the day of 9/11 being in class and legitimately thinking all of our major buildings were going to be bombed, starting with the Willis (then the Sears Tower) which was particularly frightening b/c I was and am in the Chicago area. Then again, I was like 13 and pretty naive and easily terrified at the time.

These days? I definitely fear this sort of mass cult of people that just grows wider and wider, brainwashed by media and eventually becoming so powerful that they're increasingly enabled and unable to be stopped as they wreak havoc. You look at the Nazis, or USSR Soviets, suicide cults, the Manson Family, or even how blacks were treated in my country in the 19th and even 20th century, and see that humankind is definitely capable of such collective madness. They reach this almost robotic sense of just doing what they're told and what their peers are doing even if it's abhorrent or evil. Completely incapable of self-reflection or critical thinking. And I see (subtle) aspects of that in the US already (on the left AND right). Cult-like mentalities - and the susceptibility of people to be brainwashed and mobilized into groupthink and eventually weaponized to cause harm - frighten the shit out of me. And especially now that most of our corporate media is owned by like 4 or 5 conglomerates, who can easily collude and influence a huge majority of the population, the potential for this is becoming increasingly real.

I think that's why the film The Invitation resonates so much with me. It's about the power of groupthink to carry out deadly, evil acts without a second thought. That's been a major fear of mine.

Have you seen Idiocracy? They take it way too far but it's hilarious.

Haven't but certainly seems up my ally, with its sort of alternate reality/dystopia premise. I'm shooting to knock out a bunch of films on my wishlist so I'll have to add this one.

That Donald J. Trump becomes the great hero of the worldwide corona crisis. The popular opinion is that putting the economy in hibernation is the only right approach, but Trump is reckless enough to ignore advice from experts in the medical field and focus on keeping the American economy going. Then it turns out that more people than assumed are resistent or entirely immune to corona and no catastrophe happens as consequence of Trump's actions. Preceding that will be collective mockery of Trump's idiocy, only for the world to get bitchslapped when Trump's course of action turns out to be to the benefit of the USA and the world.

Then in fall Trump gets re-elected with 75% of the popular vote while the remaining 25% are butthurt democrats who can't accept how much they got duped by the corona hysteria.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
