hah.

no.

Primal responses come from primal instincts, the fear or horror movie tropes is not primal, it's something much more modern.

and no, it's not about calculating risk, it a simple yes/no question.

"is this something that can hurt me Yes/No"

that's literally all a fear response is, and in this case, the answer is no.

and no, i'm not "trying to come across as superiour"

At first I was mocking this douche for beating up some girl, but now i'm genuinely confused.

are you seriously telling me that turning the lights off is all that it takes for you to start seeing people as monsters?


And I'm the crazy one?

Her being dressed as a monster is entirely irrelevant.

If it was a 40 year old man in a suit with his arms raised, it'd still be startling that he appeared out of fucking nowhere. I wasn't expecting a dude to somehow make his way in to what I think is a solid box without noticing. Him seemingly magically turning up is gonna be the real life equivalent of a fuckin jump-scare. My "Primal Instinct" sees that something unnatural just happened. It doesn't like unnatural shit. It's gonna run from that unnatural shit or start windmilling my arms at it.

The fact that it IS like your stereotypical horror film doesn't fuckin help. Maybe you and your Vulcan friends have the ability to turn off the bit of your brain that says "Oh shit, this is how people die in movies" but all the rest of us regular people will occasionally have an irrational moment when we've just had 7 colours of shit scared out of us.

Yes, you're the crazy one. If you've somehow raised yourself to some higher level of consciousness or some shit where you see numbers floating over people's heads to tell the possibility of them being a risk or whatever the fuck goes on inside you - you're the crazy one. Normal people get scared by shit like this, wackjobs consciously perform mental acrobatics to see how afraid they should be.

Why do you think there's a difference of good horror movies and bad horror movies? Good horror movies are believable, they play on the primal developed instinct to instill fear, instability. A bad horror movie is a comedy. You laugh at it.

That's what the art of a horror movie is. Some people have a stronger third-party aspect to horror movies and don't get scared, that's fine, they're desensitized. But that doesn't happen in real life, when there's no movie screen.

How do elevator's work? One door opens. People go in. People go out. Elevator moves up and down. Lights are always on.
What's not normal in this scenario? Lights are off and flickering. Potentially noises that are abnormal. Door stays closed, yet a sudden appearance of something creepy shows up.

What does your brain think? This shit's fucked up and that's not right. That's the fear response. That's the logic behind it.

And the poster above you is saying that light = safety because you can clearly see and identify everything you come across, whereas in the dark there's the possible unknowns. It's called instilled paranoia, and that's a product of a good horror film. He doesn't do it all the time, but after a good movie like that, it's normal to be a little cautious.

Welcome to being normal.

or maybe I'm just a sane human being who doesn't believe that monsters or ghosts exist, and as such doesn't fear them?

It's really not that complicated, lights flickering means power-cut, (which is scary for completely natural reasons if you're stuck in an elevator) someone "magically" appearing in the elevator car with you means magic-trick/prank.

it's obviously not real magic, or real monster-voodoo, because neither of those things actually exist.

why would something that doesn't exist trigger a fight/flight reaction? I don't have such reflexes, because I have never needed them. Nor will I ever.

#77 - jormungandr (08/16/2014) [-]
I get it that you can totally figure this shit out when your watching from a recording - but can you not put yourself in that situation or something? If something creepy happens, you get creeped out. You don't think "Oh, this must be a prank" you think "This is creepy" and get creeped out. Fuck, I still turn on the lights to walk into the kitchen if I've watched a horror film before hand. That's how normal people work.

And I understand that this shit doesn't exist and is impossible but you bet your ass that any normal fuckin person would shit themselves if a creepy looking girl with their face hidden appears out of nowhere after you've just been plunged into darkness in an enclosed space.

Flight/fight response isn't a logical response it's a primal one. I sincerely doubt that wee bit of your brain sits and calculates the plausibility of the situation before telling you to high-tail it out of the joint or start flailing limbs at whatever triggered it.

I get that you're trying to come across as some superior human and stuff, but do you seriously not get how everyone that isn't you would be afraid in that situation - and, when afraid, act in this manner? That shit is normal. You and your emotionless robot brain aren't.

if it was my friend in a mask, sure, i might freak. My friend is a six foot tall black man.

But a little girl with hair across her face?

why would you be afraid of that?

the only time it's even remotely threatening is if you are in a horror movie.

you can talk about reactions as much as you like, but I don't react like I'm living in a horror movie, because i'm not. so why would be be afraid of a young girl?

Lets be honest, if the lights go out, thne come back and someone's magically appeared in the room with you, you don't scream, you go "woah, that was cool, how did you do that?"

the only reason the person in this video evoked a fear response is because she's obviously stealing her costume idea from that girl from "The Ring"

that's not actually threatening though, because little girls in white, with hair across their eyes, aren't scary in the real world.

#69 - jormungandr (08/15/2014) [-]
I don't think you get it - I'm not afraid of the little girl, I'm afraid of the situation and then the figure that just apparated from nowhere. If a pram appeared with a crying baby in it, I'm knocking that shit over and running for my life. If it was a 6ft black dude looking disheveled and dead I'd probably cry in the corner.

The fact that it was a young girl is pretty irrelevant when I'm stuck in a lift with flickering lights and what my movie-soaked brain thinks is a ghost. That shit could be anything.

Either you're some kind of fucking Vulcan or a little touched in the head if you wouldn't react to that situation by shitting yourself. Sadly the rest of us haven't transcended human reactions.

who said I was against violence?

I'm against STUPID violence.

If someone calls my mom a whore, I'm absolutely willing to punch his teeth in, but someone dressing up as a horror movie villain isn't actually threatening at all.

i mean, do you believe that she's actually samara, or whatever horror character she's obviously copying from?

No, you know, with absolute 100% clarity that such a thing is impossible, so she's obviously just an actor.

you were never in any danger and if you actually stopped for a second to think, then you'd realize that.
#65 - jormungandr (08/15/2014) [-]
It's all well and good saying that from behind a keyboard but I'm pretty sure that if you were in the elevator and after being plunged into pitch darkness there's someone standing in front of you, you'd react one of two ways.

1- Scream like a banshee
2- Start swinging at the weird shit in front of you.

I know I would.

That whole "Stop for a second and think" thing is fantastic when you aren't actually there reacting. Granted, I'm more of the screamer than the swinger but if my friend jumps out at me in a costume I'm not gonna stand still for a second and think

"This guy in front of me seems to be of a similar build to my friend. My friend isn't currently in the room, so it's probably safe to assume that this costumed man is in fact my friend pranking me. I am in no danger."

I'd scream like a bitch.
