YouSpeak: What Scares You Most?

Students reveal their secret phobias


With Halloween just two days away, goblins, ghosts, monsters, and witches of all stripes are everywhere. Repeats of horror classics abound on cable TV. And movie theaters are filled with new films like Paranormal Activity 4, Sinister, and Silent Hill: Revelation, all guaranteed to elicit shrieks. But what about real life?

When BU Today asked students what scares them most, we were surprised by some of the quirky phobias they admitted to.

YouSpeak” typically appears each Monday.

    “Fear is actually a projection of our own consciousness, out into the universe, and there is nothing outside to be feared.”

    What does this even mean???
