Reader: What scares me? Khloe Kardashian and my microwave

What scares you? That's what we asked in last week's contest that gave away tickets to Haunted Mansion and 13th Door. Most answers focused on most common fears: spiders, zombies, alien attacks, being chased, the current presidential campaign.

One more original answer didn't win those tickets, but it definitely won our heart. See also: - Win tickets to Haunted Mansion, 13th Door haunted house! - 13th Door Haunted House (Slide Show) - Five tips for visiting a Haunted House

Matt's answer:

Khloe Kardashian, gremlins, shitty beer, and the "add 30 seconds" button on my microwave.

Thanks for playing, Matt.

As for those who didn't enter, what scares you?
