What are your fears/phobias?

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised no one started this thread!

 

What are your guy's fears?

 

 

I have fears of heights, spiders, bees, and being abused.

 

 

And just for the hell of it, here's a helpful phobia site (which some of these made me laugh to be honest) you'll see why:

Also, be family friendly and don't judge one another by their fears.

Falling. Definitely falling.

 

Also going insane.

 

Don't like clowns and ghosts, but not really scared.

 

Serial killers, definitely. Don't know why I watch Criminal Minds.

Drowning, Hell, dogs, sharp things pointed at my eyes, and getting raped.

 

 

A pretty cliched and unimpressive list, I suppose. I can say that I wouldn't mind any of the "painless" ways of dying (a gunshot to the head, getting hit by a truck, etc.)

I'm scared of bees/wasps, but my fear has been waning since I got stung.

 

Aside from that, I don't think i'm scared of anything. Except re-deads from Legend of Zelda :/

This.

 

The list of Phobias that Flareon posted is just hilarious. Some of the things there are more reasonable than they might seem, though.

Oh dear. I need to get my eyes checked. When I first read that, I thought it said "failing." :huh:

 

 

Anyone here have Thaasophobia? That would be a hard one to live with.

^I mean, that probably made a lot more sense a few hundred years ago. Today, it just seems laughable. I mean, consumption is a punch-line now. I'm sure cancer will eventually be a joke as well.

 

 

 

Cardiophobia: fear of the heart.

Check my new tag line -- maybe it's not so crazy.

Cynophobiac right here.

 

Hey, we need to form a cabal or something. Too many people treat dogs as if they're royalty and perfect in every way.

 

 

I want to meet someone with Dikephobia. I think that would be an interesting experience.

Falling/heights is a similar fear but I'm scared of falling too...

 

Yeah the list is pretty hilarious but most of them are true!

 

I never treated my dogs like royalty or anything but I certainly did not treat them like children either!

 

I wonder if there's a fear of fears (Y)

Well, according to Peanuts, there is a fear of everything (which of course Charlie Brown suffers from) -- Pandephobia.

Anatidaephobia: the fear that, somewhere, a duck is watching you.

 

Oh man, it would be creepy if Madhav was looking at this thread right now :/

Acrophobia - The fear of heights

 

 

 

Bathophobia - Fear of great depths [Not so much if I decide to swim down, but more like if you were on the Titanic and had to jump and fall a little far underwater...]

 

 

Triskaidekaphobia - Fear of the number 13 (I'm joking here, lol, not really... (Y) )

 

 

So yes, I have 2 fears: great depths and great heights. Falling: not so much, unless

 

a. I am committing suicide

b. I accidentally was admiring the view of the Empire State Building from the 102nd floor and accidentally fell over (screw that fence thing!)

c. Josh pushed me off Q1.

 

Also, here's something ironic: the fear of long words is known as

 

 

hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia

Snap!

 

 

Maybe the fear isn't as bad in photographs...no? There should be a way to distinguish between fear of things in general, in person, in sight, etc.

I'm not really afraid of spiders -- I find them annoying.

 

On the other hand, we just got a bunch of rattlesnakes and gaboon vipers -- those I'm afraid of.

 

(I'm hoping they will all be gone on Saturday.)

Yeah, I feel the same about spiders. Not sure if I'm scared of snakes or just grossed out by them (as well as creeped out at the thought of one of them sliding up my pants).

 

I think I'd rather be locked in a cage with a bear than a dog. At least the bear would just rip my head off, whereas the dog would go for more sensitive, but less vital parts of the body.

Not at all. Any dog can be cowed if you how to talk to it (like Cesar Milan). And if not, it's possible I could kill it before it killed me.

 

I hear bears can be cowed, but I'm not going to try.

 

Snakes aren't slimy at all, but they still give me the creeps.

Yeah, good point. I probably could kill the dog before it killed me. Actually, that's a VERY good point. So yeah. I take back what I said. Gimmie the dog.

Upon having to take care of a centipede like thing crawling around in my basement, I realize that I'm scared of them.

I definitely have a fear of anything that has a stinger, which includes bees and wasps for sure. Also, is there an official word for the fear of your computer crashing?

Oh yeah, and that centipede thing I had to get rid of, well, somehow it escaped the container it was in, so it's still somewhere in our house. The scary bit is that it could be on the first floor or the basement.

Which is just great, because now I'm scared to leave the 2nd floor.

Oh and they can climb walls and ceilings and go through impossibly small spaces. So it could be an inch under your feet in the floor, ready to crawl out of some barely visible hole.

You're right. You are mean. :P

 

 

I have a fear (some might call it a phobia) of driving around on campus. I would argue that this is a justified fear, given that at all hours of the day (and all days of the week), campus is crawling with drunk undergrads who run red lights and scream obscenities out their rolled-down windows and generally make the streets hazardous for anyone who would prefer not to be struck by a car with one broken headlight and inspection tags of questionable validity.

Oh why thank you. That was just what I needed.

They can build nests in dirt or under concrete too.

You see, Lessinath, I find centipede's fascinating, just as long as they aren't in my house, or just as long as I don't need to deal with them.

Nice use of "implying"! :D

 

And it's "sort of" grammar because you are actually saying different words when you misuse apostrophes. But, yeah, it is punctuation.

I was once threatened with detention by my english teacher upon telling him I wouldn't attend his lessons because I suffered from Coulrophobia. He was both confused and mildly impressed for a few days until he worked out I was inferring that he was a clown.

I'm afraid of heights, but mostly natural ones more than man-made heights. I'm also slightly afraid of the dark, but not so much that it stops me from doing things at night.

These aren't really fears, but more-so I think I may die from these.

 

- Accidentally running down the stairs too fast, out a window and falling to my death.

- Trying to swim without flippers, drowning in front of everyone at a local pool.

- Trying to fight fire with fire, and getting a death message.

- Meeting Melinda and she traps me in a room full of teeth.

- Getting a nonstop stream of fireballs to my house from Michael.

- Getting a nonstop stream of gliders to my house from Michael.

- Waking up to find a teeth about to eat me.

- Getting a couch thrown ontop of me.

- Playing level 145 of CC1 in Lynx.

- Playing in Tile World 1.0.

- Posting in a CCZone thread about fears.

- Trying to get 437 on Blobnet.

- Playing Bloblake.

- Playing a pieguy level.

- Playing level 134 of CC1.

 

Hope you don't get any of these :\
