    Phobias?

    I was just curious of what kind of phobias people here have. Snakes, Spiders, hights etc?

    I just saw this article. I don't know why but the mere idea that giant and colossal squid actually exist just creeps me out. Could you imagine seeing one of these things alive and up close? I know it's unlikely as they live in freezing waters at extreme depths, but still...

    This thing isn't even fully grown! And yes, those are hooks on it's tentacles.

    so anyway, yeah: seafood and moths.

    Nothing.
    "They were born, they grew up in the gutters, they went to work at twelve, they passed through a brief blossoming period of beauty and sexual desire, they married at twenty, they were middle-aged at thirty, they died, for the most part, at sixty. Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer, and, above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds."

    1 breaking my collarbones

    2 getting cheloids - (sic?) that's when you get a lot of scar tissue from a cut or piercing, my mom got those from getting her ears pierced, so I will never get anything pierced I bet. although I have tattoos and am going to get more,, I bet you can get them from that too : (

    3 not very afraid of heights but, looking up at high places. if I were to visit the sistine chapel I would probably get all woozy for a while

    Also, if you are not afraid of technology, you don't understand what is or will be possible.

    yummmmm giant squid! ^-^
    Reveille at five in the morning, as usual.

    I'm afraid of dying early. For some reason I'm more worried about being killed by a giant asteroid more than killing myself while skiing, even though the latter is more likely.

    I can't look up into a totally clear azure sky.

    I totally start panicking.

    I think it started when I had a nightmare that I looked up into the sky and suddenly lifted off the ground and couldn't get back down and floated off into the stratosphere...

    going blind (no art!!)
    going deaf (no music!!!!)
    losing my hands (no art!!!!)

    Drowning is one of the worst deaths I can think of.

    and spiders - I scream like a little girl when i see spiders. But I cant kill them because I know they eat other bugs and are generally beneficial. :/

    Other bugs dont bother me at all.

    damn that squid is scary...

    I am afraid to swim in water where I cant see the bottom...

    Once when I was younger I was convinced that I was possesed by the devil or a demon. I was freaking out for months about it.. I still get the chills thinking about it and cant watch the exorcist... Imagine if I was actually religious..

    I am deathly afraid of aliens.. I believe in them and hate them.. Ever see Fire in the Sky? damn...

    I have a fear of getting shot by ghetto gangsta thugs.. Some close freinds of mine got 2 bullets shot into their car just for looking at them. I had a guy follow me home and threaten to kick my ass with a group of them for just looking at them. I hate that mentality and get nervous every time I pull up next to another carnow. I refuse to look at the person next to me and get pissed if the passenger I am driving looks over.... I think this is my biggest fear... I hate that...
