Google "[your state/province/country] missing persons" and you'll probably find a list that's much longer than you think it will be. Then consider that most of these cases have been investigated thoroughly and gone cold. That could be you or a loved one one day, and the chances of the media scooping up your story and publicizing it far and wide really aren't that great. You or a loved one could vanish and very few people would know or care.

That, and that there are 25 to 50, or possibly as many as 2,000 active serial killers in the US right now.

Eyelash mites. As you can probably guess, they are parasitic mites that live in your eyelashes. Literally everyone has them, and they're so tiny that they can squeeze between the follicles of your eyelashes. Don't freak out though; they're totally harmless. All they do is eat the dead skin and oil that builds up in your follicles. You didn't even know they existed until I told you. And the kicker? They have parasites of their own! Tiny, invisible creatures being fed on by tinier, even more invisible creatures, living their tiny invisible lives on our bodies. We are to them as Cthulhu and all of Lovecraft's Old Ones are to us.

Yellowstone is a huge volcano that will kill everyone in the quad state area when it blows and bury most of the US in several feet of ash filled with tiny glass-like particles that kill when inhaled.

There are more bacteria cells in you than there are "you" cells in you.

In fact, there are about 10x more bacteria cells in you than your own cells.

By number only, you are actually bacteria.

(By weight, the bacteria collectively only weigh a few pounds.)

Brain aneurysms are unpredictable, could happen to anyone of any age, race, gender, sexual orientation, social class, etc etc and are basically an insta-kill.

Your only hope of surviving one is that doesn't fuck up too much of your brain at once and that it doesn't pop in a super critical spot in your brain. And that's just so you can survive ling enough to get to the hospital. Most people just drop dead immediately. Either way, your life will never be the same.

Nothing you can do to prevent it. No food or drug or lifestyle choice. It could come completely out of nowhere.

Having sex, writing a note, while driving, mid sentence.

It could come while you're doing anything. Even in your sleep. Maybe even tonight.
