Who cares what happens to a Social Media account? Most people yap endlessly about nothing! Social Media is like an unbearably-long episode of "Seinfeld," with even less meaning. "I'm like, No way! And she's like, Yes suh! And I'm like, I'll go to. ...BLAH, BLAH, BLAH."

One time, when I was like 6, i was laying in bed and i started crying because my parents told me that when you die you go to heaven and stay there forever and ever. I was terrified of bowing to God for all of eternity.

Bruh, if you don't post for a month, they know your dead.

But when the lady said that she was texting a dead friend for 30 minutes that scared me. If we offer this to every person it could enventuallly lead to people not accepting death as an actual fact. Although at the same time it could be used to make a person realize that a loved one is dead. The concept and its effects should be studied so that mass numbers of people don't become psychologically damaged.

Honestly I don't want to die...I know I'm young but the thought of death scares me. What will I become? Will I be reborn? Will I become another person? I just hate thinking about it. I don't want to die.

ElectroBlastLuigi at number 4 just say death not sleep.and we cannot reborn thats stupid fact that people belive.live ur life when you have it.spend it with family and friends thats the most important thing

ElectroBlastLuigi (7 months ago)
Jade Isabelle Not to scare you or anything but I found some theories on what happens after we die. I remember: 1. We will be reborn but lose memory of our old selves. However for some kids under 5 years old could have memories of their past relatives or people they don't know. 2. Animal reincarnation 3. We go to heaven or "heck" (I'm saying that word for safety reasons because of YouTube) 4. Nothing except falling into a deep, peaceful sleep and never wake up
