    I'd say its a tie.

    6 black guys surrounding me and wanting to rob me in Havana and no cop on the street corner. I escaped with my money.

    Also scuba diving in a hurricane and barely making it back. Kicking underwater and being swept backwards very fast and having to claw in the sand at the bottom to make progress.

    My grandmother was Mugged in her front yard twice! Total 6 dollars!

    It's kind of funny if you think about it. She laughs about it today. Because it was not a really bad neighborhood and those 2 days she happened to have no money on her.

    And I thought in Cuba there was good law and order under Castro.

    Here are some frightening experiences that I can remember offhand in my life:

    A couple of experiences in my house that scared the pants off me (no details); almost drowned once; almost got killed on an amusement park ride; a couple of minor car accidents; a couple of almost-rape experiences; a mugging (no injury). I don't know how I survived my childhood. I don't want to remember anything else!!

    It was scary when I left the JW's. My wife's parents came to pick up their daughter and take her away to their home. That left me alone in the house. When everyone left, I sat there on the living room couch, thinking about what was happening. Suddenly I heard a strange noise coming from the kitchen. (I was thinking about being at the mercy of Satan for having left the JW's. Now the demons are going to take over.) I got up to examine the kitchen. Nothing! Went back and sat down. After a bit, same strange noise. Now I was really gettin' scared. I tiptoed to the kitchen. Nothing! "Oh my God! What have I done?" (I had just joined the Mormon Church). After another short while, another noise in the kitchen. I went to check it out. I stood there in the kitchen with no sound or movement, and I waited. Suddenly, this little mouse came out of nowhere and ran across the floor. He was more scared than I was.

    I vowed that never again would I fall for that one. And I never did! Devil be gone.
