Remember the good old days when we were just scared of the simple things? You know, like spiders, snakes, heights and clowns? Well, those days are gone. Welcome to the age of fear of government corruption and cyber terrorism.

Chapman University in California asked people what they're most afraid of. You can see the results below. Then tell us what your biggest fear is in the comments at the bottom of the page. For me, it's still spiders! I guess I'm just old fashioned. On the bright side, the fear of clowns and zombies did still make the list. ;)
