  • Top 10 scariest scenarios

    WITH ALL THE BAD STUFF and I mean REALLY BAD STUFF that's already happening nowadays, you might be thinking, heck, what's the worst thing that could happen? A lot.

    2bU! presents the top 10 scariest scenarios that will make you pray novenas this Halloween. And trust me, the dead walking the earth should be the least of your worries.

    10. Carnivals and cemeteries become one. It never fails to amaze me how a somber, peaceful atmosphere can instantly turn into a garish freak show of traffic jam, trash, gambling tables and overpriced food. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that this holiday was intended to honor the dead, not defile their graves. A little common decency here, people -- they're not called resting places for nothing.

    9.More skeletons rattling in the closet. Seems like we're being bombarded with so many shocking revelations one after another that the word "scandal" is hardly effective anymore to define them. Whether it's another voice recording or a fresh new batch of ineligible basketball players, all I can say is come out, come out, wherever (or whoever) you are.

    8. Payatas is officially declared the Eighth Wonder of the World. You only have to smell it to believe it. Forget tsunamis -- we've got our own tidal wave of trash right here. Who needs water when we're about to drown in our own filth? "Minor" avalanches have already claimed the lives of several people, and pretty soon the stench and the bacteria will eventually make their way into our clean, cozy little homes. Give me a watery grave anytime.

    Suicide bombers go trick-or-treating. So far, there have been no updates on the Indonesian bombers who had dodged NAIA's super-strict security and are allegedly hiding in Mindanao. With the holiday rush just a hair's breadth away, no wonder the government has so valiantly tried to conceal this little factoid. But apart from that, there's no real cause for panic. Not yet.

    6. Death by water hose. Prayer rallies are supposed to be peaceful, but not in this country. That was the day both politics and religion overstepped their bounds. Not only have people sustained injuries from the force of the water, but the whole nation also witnessed how insolently they were treated, the clergy or lay.

    5. FPJ's ghost manifests himself to the "rallying" crowd. "Walang iwanan," he once said. Will he get to fulfill his promise this Halloween? After the unsightly "baptism" of anti-PGMA rallyists in Plaza Miranda, it will only take one voice from beyond the grave to lift the dampened spirits (pun intended) of FPJ supporters. For the sake of safety and order (if that's even possible), let's pray FPJ's really resting in peace.

    4. The QC carjackers strike again. Sorry to put a damper on your sembreak spirits, kids, but I believe that this merits your attention, especially those of you who love partying till dawn. These goons with guns sandwich your car, force you to surrender your vehicle and valuables, and take you to a remote place where they abandon you (if you're lucky). They're not picky with their targets, having preyed on lone drivers, families and chauffeur-driven cars alike. Also, they're known to hang around in places like Tomas Morato, Gilmore and Quezon Avenue, so be warned.

    3.Epidemics spread worldwide. "Uso" diseases like dengue and bird flu have started to raise the mortality rate to alarming proportions, with new viral and bacterial strains popping up and mutating even as we speak. If this keeps up, we won't be able to find a cure in time. In the meantime, you might want to read up on these silent killers to avoid becoming a statistic.

    2. Mother Nature finally turns her wrath on the Philippines. How many times have you wished that the earth would open up and swallow you? Well, be careful with what you wish for. So far, our extremely fortunate country has gone unscathed by tsunamis, hurricanes and earthquakes that are currently wreaking havoc on the rest of our sorry little planet, but it doesn't mean we'll be safe for long. In the meantime, let's not further abuse nature.
