I don’t always shake my head in fear and run in the opposite direction, but when I do I’m usually faced with a hoard of baby roaches crawling around in my bathroom OR when I’m looking over a cliff’s ledge that could be my untimely demise. Who ever thought tightrope walking across a canyon was ever a good idea?! Y’all crazy.

People get scared for myriad reasons, but there are some things that get the blood pumping in disgusted delight a bit more than others. I mean, have you ever poked a pulsating dark blob in the corner of your room thinking it might be dust only to find thousands of tiny spiders crawling toward you? If you haven’t ever witnessed something like that in real life and are wondering how you’d react — don’t fret! The amazing people of the World Wide Web will make you sh*t your pants via entertaining and soul-draining videos. Thanks internet strangers!

So let us take a ride into the anxiety-inducing crevices of your biggest fears and see how you feel. Maybe diving into the dark expanse of open ocean makes your skin crawl. Or perhaps any inkling of personal disaster is enough to make you run for the hills. Either way — just be glad that you’re not the one hanging off the side of a building doing pull-ups. But like, why do people even think that’s exhilarating or fun? F*cking parkour, man.

If you can get through these 19 videos without screaming NOPE at the top of your lungs and running to the hills (or the other room probs) — then you’re probably an emotionless robot:

1. A big nope to this fire hazard (this is why women live longer than men):

2. Because I’ve always wanted to walk along a two inch piece of rope across a canyon and maybe fall to my own death. Yeah, nope.

3. NOPE, BYE — see ya never!

4. Just imagine that honker of a spider crawling up the inside of your bum. NUUHHH-OPE!
