    Spiders. Once when I was a kid I saw a spider crawl under one of the beds in my house and never stuck my hand under there again. Even years later I wouldn't stick my hand under the bed. Crazy, I know. lol

    I've always had a phobia of sharks after seeing Jaws at a young age. I sometimes get scared in lakes, if I think about it hard enough... heh.

    Really deep water, because I can't really swim.

    I'm also really scared of the game Portal, which is kind of weird because I've also got a weird obsession with it. I can't bring myself to play it when I'm alone, and I never finished it, but that's probably because I'm usually not around my computer and other people at the same time. It's sad because it's a really short game.

    I guess we can not be friends cannonbeat as I am a bit of a pyromaniac.


    I am a afraid of heights a bit i guess that started when I fell from a pretty tall tree when I was younger and the only reason I did not get really badly hurt or worse is because my jacket caught on branchs on the way down but it never stops me from dealing with it, as i get over it fast as I know its nothing to be afraid of.

    insects........ never knew why, I just can't stand any kind of flying or crawling insect (so, that just leaves snails...)
    clowns. had one fall on me when i was little or something. ever since then they scare me shitless.
    I am also sorta scared of buildings with really tall ceilings... always feel like something is going to fall on me.

    cannonbeat, weird, never heard of anyone being scared of fire before, although i guess it makes sense in a phobic sort of way. I am quite the pyrophile myself (that means lover of fire, nothing else you perv [​IMG] )

    I have a sort of "reverse fear of heights" [​IMG]

    I don't have a problem at all with standing on top of buildings or at edges of skyscrapers, in fact I quite enjoy that. What I do hate though, is looking up at a building or tall ceiling from ground level and seeing pipes, ducts or balcony's that I could imagine myself hanging from with nothing to break my fall below. I always get a little "jolt" of a shock when then that happens... I wouldn't say it's a real phobia anything though. And on the other hand, if and when I do go up to the balcony etc. I'm 100% fine... And would probably happily jump off it for a laugh if there was a ton of cushions or something below.

    I fear idiots, nothing has caused me more trouble in life. This being said I would be more likely to headbutt someone than run away.

    Fortunately by sticking to the shadows and selecting who I speak to fairly carefully I can avoid them.
