In the past I’ve never found scaring myself entertaining. Some consider it a release while others love the thrill, but for me… the real reason is as follows and by ranking:
#5 Personally, Not Entertaining!
Say what you will, we all have our own definition of entertainment and mine doesn’t involve getting spooked for a shrieky scream as a form of release. I might release something else and I don’t intend to know what it will be.
#4 Not Thrilling
Some would consider getting surprised by a loud thud somewhere in the dark as thrilling, for me its more of to investigate and eliminating the issue. According to spiritual mediums, I have a strong aura that signals spirits to keep away from me. Maybe that’s why I hardly encounter evil spirits, furthermore I don’t go hunting for them to prove it again.
#3 Real Haunted Houses
Rather than paying to be spooked, I’d rather be spooked for free. There are obviously differences between real hauntings and theatrics, and I lean more towards reality rather than make beleive. Malaysia has lots of spooky and forbidden areas where hauntings lurk anyway.
#2 Life is Scary
Have you ever looked at your bill every month, that’s spooky enough not knowing whether you can make payments. Life is scary, tell that to the dead. They’d prefer to stay dead.
Finally on this list, the number one and MY REAL AND MAIN REASON why I choose to ignore or jus don’t go into horror or haunted themed parks is…
#1 My Nasty Reflex
As corny as it may sound, this is the real reason. There have been occasions where I literally will throw down a mean punch out of reflex; meant to knockout. Being a novice in martial arts, I have yet to master my reflex upon a surprise attack, thus controlling it might be difficult to achieve when needed.
