Published 10 months ago

There are times we all imagine unlikely jumpscare scenarios which eventually turn out to be all in our heads. From getting unnerved by catching your own reflection in your peripheral vision to imagining someone is out to get you through your bedroom window when it’s just a tree branch scratching at the glass in the wind, the list goes on. 

It’s silly but in the moment you tend to believe it and fear it with all your being. Take heart though, you’re certainly not alone as shown by the hilarious pics below of folks getting unintentionally frightened by something that turned out to be totally harmless and innocent. Clearly, we’ve all been watching too many horror movies. But who doesn’t enjoy a little thrill?  So go ahead. Scroll if you dare. But best beware, for danger is in the air.

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
