This won’t seem related, but the comic reminded me of it.
I have a friend who I met when we both worked in the theme park industry. I have accompanied him while walking in dark, spooky locations. I’ve stood next to him on catwalks looking down over great heights. I’ve sat next to him on multiple thrill rides, under various unusual conditions (lights on when it’s supposed to be a dark ride, lights out when there’s supposed to be light, that sort of thing) on many occasions. The most scared I have ever seen him look was the chair-lift-dance at his Jewish wedding ceremony.
