I got into a discussion with a friend of mine. He has a fear of wide open spaces. So I started to wonder if I had any phobias...luckily I dont. I hate clowns, but I dont fear them. Also hate sharks but I dont freak out if I am near one.

Anyways. Got me thinking. What are the board's fears/hates/dislike strongly.

I have a phobia of fresh water fish. Salmon. Trout. Sardines. Anything with flat eyes and silvery scales...

It's odd, because tropical fish and the like don't bother me at all. I have to avoid the fish section of supermarkets. Annoying as all get out.

McPiranhaphobia:

Fear of being fed on by McDaniels cultists who attack immediately concerning the mention of Jay Cutler's name without ****ting on it, the post or it's potential. A real thought killer.

When I was a kid this movie made me afraid to put my shoes on. Luckily that fear is no longer around... not sure what scares me now. I know I think worms are ****ing nasty. Fear would probably be something that would kill me. Only one life to live :D!

The spiders that hang from the eaves are the ones that really creep me out... I can't walk onto a porch without checking for "eave-hangers"..... *shudder*

I'm not afraid of worms... or even snakes. But spiders... ewwwwwww

Actually Cancer would probably be mine actually. Good show. Never really thought about fears before so it was hard to think of one.

Spiders. They need to be exterminated.

Pantyhose. Can't stand the sight of them on or off women. Stockings freak me out too unless they are fishnet or something other than nylon. I really hate the sight of feet in them. ???

I've been skydiving some and it doesn't bother me so much as some lower heights. Being so high up almost makes it seem like the ground is not real.

I freaking hate snakes, but only if its just air separating me and the snake. Put a snake in an aquarium, and I love watching them feed on mice and stuff. I also hate rats. Those things are nasty.

I also find anything catholic creepy as well. Last time i was in a catholic church I had goosebumps cuz I was so afraid some priest was gonna sneak up and grab my...

Spiders. I can do anything but spiders. Ugh

Oh and also being stuck in tight spaces I start to panic. Claustrophobia for sure.

Lightning. I absolutely hate and fear lightning. Have since I was a child, the subsequent loud thunder let's me know the power and just freaks me out. It's a joke at my work, if it's lightning, they know I won't be there till it's over.

Also confining spaces.

Now you're derailing other threads with your constant Cutler love?

It's time to let go, Hambone.

I cannot do heights. I won't go on a ferris wheel, because I occasionally get stuck at the very top while they are loading someone else in a car. That's the longest wait ever. I think that's part of the reason I don't ski. I wouldn't be able to stand the ski lifts...

Not sure I have serious phobias, but I do have this thing about commitment. I can't seem to do that, don't seem to want to and when a guy gets even remotely serious I kind of take off. not a fear or hate exactly, but I think I have a fear of my choices being limited or losing some part of myself to make them happy.

but on the more silly note, I have a serious fear of getting lost. hate that. Also when in water, hate that I can't see what's underneath and around me (I guess it's some sort of Jaws related trauma). and also am terrified of being murdered by a serial killer, though my rational mind tells me that is ridiculous.

Sharks. I love aquariums, but the shark exhibit always gives me problems, especially if its a tunnel through the shark tanks. Sharks have dead eyes...its kind of creepy. If in the water I cant outswim the shark, I dont have any advantages over it, its stronger than me, faster than me and bigger than me.

Also the fact that Great Whites pop their heads out of the water and take a look around bugs the **** out of me too. Its a fish...

I have a serious fear of heights from 10-15 feet... especially on a ladder. I simply cannot function on a ladder or climb onto a rooftop.

I can jump off cliffs into the lake, no problem. I've even been skydiving and it didn't bother me. It's the fear of falling and breaking my neck from a sub-lethal height that just freaks me out.
