As you’ve already clicked on the title of this thread, you know what it’s about. But I am going to set the stage anyway by telling you a story.
My old roommate and I would always find ourselves at different social gatherings (bars, lounges, parties, etc.) and people would, as people will do, ask to bum a cigarette of off either of us. (This was when I smoked [obviously]). After a while my friend started asking people to pay a fee for the cigarettes. The fee was that they would have to answer a question. The question is the title of this thread.
Over the years we got some really good responses which included:
- Being attacked from below (like in the ocean)
- Being stuck floating in outer space
- Being sawed in half slowly
- Getting a girl pregnant
At least one person actually chose to not answer the question and not take the smoke. I sort of admired that.
So I pose it to you: What is your deepest, most haunting, most existential fear?
