One of the proudest traditions on the SA forums is our annual visit to the Nightmares Fear Factory, a haunted house type thing in Niagra Falls where people do conga lines in the dark until something scary happens right as their picture is taken. It's surprisingly funny to see the range of expressions people have mid-shock, from grimacing fear to shocking fearlessness to "clearly wants to have sex with the scary thing" and many shades of bizarre in between, and the SA forums have long used these pics as fodder for our Halloween fun! For anybody curious, the people are afraid of a car, apparently. Don't ask (no really, don't, it's incredibly passe now!)

Any forum poster worth their salt will gladly inform you (without being asked) that genre fiction is, in fact, garbage for children. You are not reading a real book unless it is difficult and mildly unpleasant. Test your READING MACHISMO with these truly challenging works.
