|Kauai Style Truck|
Driving on the wrong (right) side of the road. It scares the pants off me. Especially late at night when I try to turn a corner. I also look the wrong way when crossing the road, and often find myself almost getting run over by cyclists when I automatically move to the left. Scary stuff!
The self flushing toilet. I encounter these machines in many places, such as airports and restaurants. Every time I stand up and they flush, it makes me jump a mile. Plus sometimes they flush while you are still sitting on them. Not good.
Any kind of reality television. MTV, Teen Mom, The Kardashians, ANYTHING Housewives related (New York, New Jersey, definitely the most scary reality t.v. out there). If you don't think this stuff is scary, then you've got problems.

Giant American trucks (For my Aussies, truck means Ute - same thing). They make them big, fat and wide here. Especially the lifted ones. Lifting is where you raise the body of the truck above the axel. In American culture, your social status can often depend on the size of your truck. If you need a ladder to get into your truck, then you've taken things a bit too far.
Costco (warehouse style grocery store). They have a deal where for $1.50 you get a hotdog and an UNLIMTED soda. That is just plain scary.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY! <3 <3 <3
