    Have you seen this phobia? It's sooo nasty:
    Arachibutyrophobia- Fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth.

    And this one surely must be a joke:
    Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia- Fear of long words.
    You freak out by hearing the name of your phobia!

    I'm arachnophobic for sure. And I have a fear of chickens.. And I'm a little bit kleptomanic (it's not a phobia though): I stole 86 drinking straws yesterday xD

    Toxiphobia: Fear of poison. That's one I've had since childhood, and managed to shake it, mostly.
    I have others, but I'm afraid to tell you about them.

    hmm i dont know what mine is, but i say tacobellophobia?
    anyhow i am afraid of taco bell items with sour cream

    when i was little i ate from taco bell, something with sour cream, got food poisoning and puked like crazy, then a fever could barely get up, was soo sick that i was hallucinating, staring at this weird figure standing over me on my bed staring back at me. ever since then i'd rather not eat anything from taco bell, and i stay a distance away from any taco bell item with sour cream, makes me feel ill just seeing it.

    I'm slightly arachnophobic, I hate big spiders. Which is a not good considering I live in Australia and we have spiders the size of dinner plates in our homes.

    I also have a fear of needles, as in the injection kind. If anyone can tell me the name of that phobia I'll give you a cookie [​IMG]

    Large spiders (UK definition: anything larger than half an inch. Opium's locals would have me running for the hills [​IMG]), and an inherited irrational fear of making telephone calls to companies when I don't know what I'm talking about. And I'm squeamish of operations on TV involving eyes and the skin under people's nails. You know, like when you smack a nail too hard, it turns black and falls off. Totally freaks me out.

    As a kid I was terrified of fire. I totally blame Neighbours. The cafe burned down and it scared the hell out of me. Incidentally Madonna's "Dear Jessie" was playing on the radio at the same time, and I now feel uneasy whenever I hear it.

    I'm scared of fires because my room is a fire hazard. That and when I was a kid, a friend and I was doing an animated short just for fun; we we're drawing a house on fire and people running around it and shit. Next thing I know, my grandma who lives next door is banging on the door shouting that our neighbor's house was on fire. We went outside staring as the house burnt down. Creepy. That and I told my friend we should have drawn money raining down and stuff.

    what's wrong with collecting drinking straws? i've taken over 1500 in 4 yrs of school.
    Im afraid of heights, spiders, and cockaroaches. As a matter of fact, i was taking a shower, and i saw a cockaroach, i screamed like a girl, fell down, then it ran. I grabbed my bottle of shaving cream (its that gel one, that turns into bubbles) and kept spraying it. Then it went into a corner and got stuck there, so i buried in shaving cream. i saw it this morning dead among a pile of bubbles. I'm also scared of gay people wanting to rape me, fat people, and boos from super mario 64. Also, like the entire game F.E.A.R, i almost pooped myself after playing 40 minutes. I'm afraid of black people when im in a dark place (instant-camo) and according to my parents, i'm scared of work. (last one is rofl) i don't want to sound mean, or stupid, but its all sadly true.

    Anything smaller then my hand that moves. And I'm talking a real phobia which is defined as not even being able to be in the same room as one (as soon as I see it, I'm outta there). Plus, I get really itching when seeing one and stay itchy for a good half hour.
