Scariest rapid/river in the country?

The Colorado thread was so interesting... What do you all think the scariest rapid or stretch of river in the country is?

I know you all are just kidding, but I actually have run that river (it's the Popo Agie River right?) It's a lot of fun

Technically it's not in the country, but in North America I would say the Grand Canyon of the Stikine.

How about the one you run every day that had a strainer float into last night?

Crack in the Rock

For me it's Crack in the Rock on section IV of the Chattooga. It's not a a difficult rapid but I get the heebies each time I'm above it and coming through Corkscrew. The first time I had paddled that stretch, after an overnight drive from Wisconsin, a member of the sheriff's office was there and informed us that someone had died in Crack the day before. He asked us to keep an eye out for a body and if we saw something to call the office. Needless to say it was a pretty somber day on the river for us.
