Their result for The Oh God That Sucks Test ...
When asked how badly things suck, you say pain sucks 40%, discomfort sucks 46%, isolation sucks 30% and embarassment sucks 27%.
Here's my thoughts on each of the categories:
PAIN It's normal to not want to feel pain. Instinct and all that, since pain is a pretty good warning of impending death. And, yeah, if you think pain sucks the most, then your nightmare scenario probably involves blunt objects and your sensitive bits coming together repeatedly.
DISCOMFORT You'd think it would be easier to deal with discomfort than with out and out pain. After all, discomfort isn' t really damaging physically. Then again, what really makes discomfort bad is what it does to your mind. Which is why Chinese Water Torture, which causes no pain whatsoever, is still a nasty, nasty, thing. Drip, drip, drip.
ISOLATION People, whether they want to admit it or not, need people. They also need surroundings that are familiar and comforting. So, naturally, it can get pretty bad sometimes when you feel lonely or lost. You're no longer in your comfortable territory and anything can happen. Probably the worst thing that can happen to someone who fears isolation is solitary confinement, maybe in a prison where no-one speaks his or her language.
EMBARASSMENT Is the one fear that actually doesn't make that much sense, when you think about it. It's purely emotional, it has nothing to do with danger, and is mostly a social construct. But, on the other hand, a lot of people would rather die than be embarassed. Like, say, having a secretly taped sex video distributed online. Oh, it won't kill you or drive you insane, but you'll probably be afraid to speak to anyone ever again.
Of course, most of us don't fear just one of these things above all else. No, our ultimate nightmares mix and match.
Like being forced into a public sex show involving large spiky objects in a very uncomfortable place.
Or being stranded on a desert island and forced to cut off and eat bits of yourself to survive.
Or being forced to wear one of those chastity belts with the razor sharp spikes at the business end.
Oh yes, Dear God, That Would Suck.
