      That’s a really interesting question. I think people tend to get very scared of things that they don’t know or understand. In some ways, that’s a good thing – if you’re scared and run away from unknown things by default, then if it IS dangerous, you’re less likely to get hurt by it than if you weren’t scared. Ghost stories scare people because no one really understands ghosts, and they can be quite dangerous in some stories. I don’t get scared by ghost stories though, because I don’t believe in them. Do you?
