Your Fears As A Kid, Alongside Your Fears Now

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

Everyone is afraid of something, no matter how old they are. What changes over time is what scares them. And oddly enough, it's often the exact same thing, but for different reasons. We didn't want to feel like gigantic scaredycat babies, so we asked our readers to show us the things that scared them as a kid, and the things that scare them now.

Our thanks to Tomkat53, who is the exception to the rule and fears nothing, for suggesting this contest.
