When I was a kid I saw "Jaws" at too young of an age. As a result I thought that a great white shark was going to come through the wall, knock the washing machine out of the way, come through the shower curtain and bite my legs off while I was in the shower.

A discussion broke out on Reddit yesterday about the silly things that scared people when they were kids. Here are the top answers.

1. Clowns.

2. The dark.

3. Kidnapping.

4. What's underneath the bed or in the closet.

5. People in masks and costumes.

6. Escalators.
