I used to read YouTube comments a lot and one day a comment said: do not stop while reading this or bad things will happen to you. One day a girl died .......(I think it went like that) and if you don't repost this comment five/ten times(I saw a few of these in my life) on other sites, one night when you least expect it, she will rise from her grave and kill you with her dagger. I didn't do it and it freaked me out.

Me and my sisters were getting groceries and when no one was looking the trunk hit my little sister in the back of her head. The trunk wouldn't stay up and my sister tried to climb in the trunk to reach for something. Our car was a used Yukon and the trunk was weak. Blood was EVERYWHERE! We took her to the ER and she was ok.
