Well, not ALL of them actually happened too ME
#1: My dad has the biggest.. When his job required him to go to Afghanistan.. He said he was kidnapped.. Even though it wasn't real, and was a simulation.. He was still blindfolded, held at gun point, and was told too spread his dirty shoes on the Canadian flag,. He didn't, he said "some things, you just can't mentally do".
#2: When my sister and I were on a plane ride, the plane was struck by lightening.. We legit were scared for our lives..

Mainly cause of Mark Hoffman.
Say what you want about Hoffman, but the dude is a friggin BADASS. In Saw VI we saw Mark Hoffman killing three cops in about five seconds, while armed with nothing but a small knife and a cup of coffee. Totally badass.
And than, John's wife straps to the reverse bear strap, with no way of escaping.. But that doesn't stop Mark "Chuck Norris" Hoffman, who bashes his way out of his restraints by using the trap, prevents the trap from opening fully, and finally rips the thing off,...

4.Johnny Depp accompanied his friend Jackie Earle Haley to auditions for A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984). Instead of Haley being chosen for a role, it was Depp who was spotted by director Wes Craven, who asked him if he...
