  • Wow, this one sounds like a regular NRA ad, lol. I'm a gun in the nightstand type of person, myself. But I'm still afraid of living alone because: what if I get sick and no one comes for me, and I die? It happened to one of the ladies who worked at my school when I was little, and I've been scarred by it ever since.

  • "Taking some good precautions." Yeah, except for BUYING A GUN. "You can't hurt me, I have a cellphone! Help will arrive in the next ten to fifteen minutes!" The man cowered in his own god damn attic and said "Well I've got a landline up there now so it's chill."

  • Unpopular opinion about being scared: If I don't know it's there, or if it's ever been there I'm ok. I always have my blinds closed, who knows slenderman or some shit could be out there and as long as I don't find out. I feel safe. EXCEPT FOR WATER, THAT UNKNOWN SHIT SCARY

  • We live on the second floor and already got buglarized twice, once when my mom was home alone asleep. They never took a lot of things (although they found some precious jewelry the second time, but I'm always afraid when I'm alone (which happens fairly often) that I forget to close the windows. Once had a sleep paralysis where I hallucinated footsteps getting closer and closer to my room until they got in front of my bed. At which point I woke up, but... not fun

    • Seriously though I have family who live out in Nicholas in a really old farmhouse there’s literally nothing for miles it’s a very small community. My cousin’s bus route would take them an hour to get to school so most of them are homeschooled. There was always something really eerie about the old barn that they have there a lot of the stuff inside has probably sat for maybe 30 years? The house was vacant for a while before my aunt, uncle, and cousins moved in. The back half of the property curves up onto a hill facing the rear side of the house eventually leading to a levee where it’s a densely wooded area. In the fog looking at the front door from afar with it’s singular light fixture always gave me the creeps. As you said it’s even worse when you have vivid images of what the setting was like and what could/has happened.

  • Things this guy needs: •Loaded pistol in a gun-safe by the bed, plus extra magazine clips Personally I’d have the safety already off and ready to fire •Loaded shotgun in the attic, plenty of buckshot and birdshot •Good home security system that alerts authorities of home invasion, and security cameras. •Guard dog for good measure.

    KariKari20 days ago
  • Home invasion has to be the scariest thought for me because of my animals. Like - okay I’ll hide, what about my cats and my birds, dude? I can’t just leave them in the path of a crazed intruder! My dumb ass would die trying to make sure they didn’t let my pets out or hurt them 🤦🏻‍♀️

  • Instances like these are why I support the second amendment. If he was waiting for the intruder with a loaded shotgun with buckshot pointed at the door it would’ve been a different story. Firearms come in handy sometimes. I hope he bought one plus a good security system after this. But in this scenario keeping one loaded by the bedside might’ve been bad if the intruder had already broken in before and scouted the place. Could keep a pistol in a gun safe by the bed but there may not be enough time to retrieve it. He’s got quick and easy access to the attic, keep the shotgun in the attic with more ammunition, and retreat there. Crouch behind some boxes or things you have stored as a barrier, safety off pointed at the door ready to fire. Sorry Ryan, but if the intruder has a firearm, a sword is useless, you might as well be holding a spoon. You wouldn’t know how strong or quick the person looking to kill you could be, and you could easily be overpowered and disarmed if you tried to fight them off. TL;DR chik-chik 💥*KABOOM*💥 That’s all she wrote.

  • I’m a wuss when it comes to horror and scary stories, I can only get through it with comic relief. Perfect series for me to enjoy scary stories. There should be a genre of horror movies with comic relief for wusses.

  • I learned the hard way that it’s a bad idea to listen to this video right before going to bed. I dreamt of home invasion all night. Seriously, I was so spooked when I woke up that morning that I grabbed my stainless-steel water bottle to use as a weapon before investigating every corner of my house. It didn’t help that we were scheduled to have a guy check out our windows that morning and my parents didn’t care to tell me... Long story short, I now have a baseball bat by my bed at all times.

  • i grew up on finnish countryside, our nearest neighbor is two kilometres away but they are usually only there during the summer. the nearest permanent residence is like 5km away. anyway one time mum realized she had forgotten the key to the door at home, she had forgotten the key on the door a few times before. when we returned home the door was wide open and nothing was out of place apart from the key to the door being middle of the room on the carpet.
