One of the strangest privileges of our relatively comfortable, safe lives is that we are completely free to do things with the express purpose of scaring the fuck out of ourselves. Horror movies? Rollercoasters? Going in one of those shark tanks? We're so bored that we deliberately try and make ourselves feel terror.
