** This is part of what makes the concept of war so terrifying. Progapandists tend to omit the very real possibility that participants come back completely fucked up, if at all. Add to this the fact that historically, participants in battles have been impressed into their roles.

* [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fatal_familial_insomnia Fatal familial insomnia]] is not like regular insomnia, where one has difficulty falling asleep: this is a condition that renders the sufferer ''physically incapable'' of falling asleep. Sleep deprivation for any length of time can cause symptoms, ranging from irritability to hallucinations. The longer the body goes without sleep, the worse the symptoms become: in the case of FFI, this can result in rapid weight loss, rapid heart rate, high blood pressure, loss of muscle control, dementia, and eventually, death within approximately 70 months. The good news is that, true to its name, FFI is an inherited disorder, so the average person's chances of suffering from it are quite low. The bad news is that there is a similar condition called "sporadic fatal insomnia": all of the symptoms of FFI, but without the need for genetic inheritence, since it can happen to anyone.

* One more chronic pain condition, this time with ''no cure'': [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluster_headache cluster headaches]] are described as feeling akin to having a needle stuck in your eye, causing pain on a scale that cannot be fathomed unless you suffer from them, yourself. In the case of chronic sufferers, the pain can be so great and unceasing that [[DrivenToSuicide they may take their own lives just to get some relief]], earning the condition the odious nickname of "suicide headaches".

* In ''Theatre/JuliusCaesar'', the scene where an innocent poet is literally torn to pieces simply because he had the misfortune of sharing a name with one of Caesar's assassins, Cinna. This is something that could happen to anyone.

** On the subject of irrational bigotry, the "Gay Panic" and "Trans Panic" defenses in the court system. What are these defenses, you may ask? Basically, they occur when someone ''murders'' a gay man or a transwoman and goes on to claim that they were just so scared or disgusted that they went temporarily insane and had no option but to kill them. Usually, the claim is that either a straight man was afraid that the gay man would rape him and so he killed him in [[WhyDidYouMakeMeHitYou "self defense"]] or a straight cisgendered man [[GoMadFromTheRevelation temporarily went mad from the revelation that the cute girl he was hitting on was "actually a man"]]. The ''really'' scary thing? Up until not too long ago, this defense was a surefire way to assure that homophobic/transphobic murderers [[KarmaHoudini got away scot-free]]. That's right, the courts saw this as a ''legitimate defense''.

* On October the 19th of 2014, a Hungarian crowd caused a riot against a Romanian crowd during a football game. This whole spectacle was caught in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NK_YTqGVzhU this horrific video]]. What makes this even scarier is the fact that this crowd acted like '''barbarians''' just to show how "superior" they are to the other team.

* On the year of 1995, many people who listened to the radio station WKCR 89.9 were startled when [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EaO6Ktir67g THIS]] came on. Oh sure, it seems normal at first, but [[TemptingFate just wait]] until 16 seconds [[JumpScare pass]]...
** There was actually a [[http://4chandata.org/x/Creepy-old-audio-recording-a423919 4chan thread]] that was related to this as well. Check it out if you're curious about this video.

** In 1989, NHL fans witnessed perhaps the most graphic injury in sports history. Buffalo Sabres goaltender Clint Malarchuk had his '''NECK SLIT OPEN BY AN ICE SKATE''' and this was all captured [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dR-wA4SmbO4 on live television]] (WARNING: NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART). The injury was so horrific that 11 fans fainted, 2 fans suffered ''heart attacks'', and 3 players vomited on the ice. The skate just ''barely'' missed his jugular vein, which if that happened, Malarchuk would have bled to death in seconds. Also, the teams doctor was a former medic in the Vietnam War, so he knew how to stop the bleeding when leading Malarchuk off the ice. Keep in mind that the Sabres arena at the time (the Buffalo Memorial Auditorium) only had one entrance to the ice, and Malarchuk's goal happened to be in front of it. If Malarchuk was on the opposite side of the rink, he would have bled to death before he reached the locker room.
