AskReddit Thread: Scariest Things That Woke People Up

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most frightening things that woke people up in the middle of the night. Night time is full of unexplainable moments of spookiness. Sometimes we partially wake up, and experience those chilling moments of sleep paralysis when we're absolutely convinced that there's a demon homie chilling at the end of the bed. Or, maybe it's that pleasant moment when a poster falls off the wall and you spring awake as your heart leaps outside of your chest.

I think we have a problem here. Discuss amongst yourselves...

UPDATE: These statistics come to us courtesy of Gallup; I never thought legitimacy would be these disappointing.

DOUBLE UPDATE: By popular demand, the link above tells us the sample this poll is taken from:

"Results for this USA Today/Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted May 10-13, 2012, with a random sample of 1,012 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. For results based on the total sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points."
