Everybody(well at least most people) have some kind of phobia, what's yours? Since I started the thread, I guess I should go first A few of mine are:

Doctors- I dont know why they scare me, but they do.. maybe it's because the ones I see smile constantly, I suppose they think its comforting to the patients, but I just think its creepy. I'm also afraid of hospitals.. the smell of one is enough to give me nightmares.

Rats- Never even seen one, except for the domestic type sold in pet shops, so again I have no good reason to be afraid of them, but I am. Probably because my older brother told me that rats would eat you if there were enough of them. One reason I like snakes is because they eat rats.

I used to be afraid of storms, but I have gotten over it. My wife is afraid of the dark, which is strange because until recently she wasn't, and she says nothing has happened to her in the dark to make her afriad of it

Let's see...

Bugs in general frighten me. Wasps, bees, hornets, spiders anything that can sting or bite me. Though, I do have enough guts to squish 'em with a napkin and flush 'em down the toilet.

I also don't deal with public places well. I generally a pretty tense person in public situations. I have some kind of social disorder, methinks.

"Spiders and Women. Oh and uh, Spider Women"

Little quote from Pvt. Cooper in Dog Soldiers. But the first of these things really freak me out sometimes. Spiders have eight legs and as many eyes, when you watch any type of show about them, and there are close-ups you can see the evil intelligence in those jewel-like eyes. They're the closest things to malicious Aliens that we have on this Earth. I suspect that yes, they may just be from another planet and will one day gather in vast numbers and take over the planet. :eek: ;)

Water. Deep, deep water. I was sucked into an undertow when I was three or four and it didn't help that the movie Jaws portrayed exactly what swam in those boundless depths. People who want to go to the beach: Knock yourselves out, because I ain't going out in the water. Is it a coincedence that shark attacks have become more plentious in the past few years? I think not! No way am I drowning or being eaten.

I'm afraid of snakes! I really hate and fear them. I think this comes from my childhood when I was peacefully walking in a field on that nice Summer day and all of a sudden I walked on a snake and it almost bit me! :eek:

LOL!
Okay spiders used to scare the yell out of me but I've gotten much better about dealing with them. I'm utterly fascinated with these little critters and I respect them to the point that I won't kill any...unless of course it gets on me then it's lucky if it can survive my hysteria.
I guess I've got the same disorder that Zombie has because I can't handle big crowds of people.
I hate to drive on interstates and I'm also afraid of heights.

Very true .. hehe, bugs are just evil. My phobia for those alien bugs has rubbed off on my son who screamed like a little girl the other day because a damn fly landed on him .. which made me laugh because his version of the phobia has out done mine :D

Spiders are cool.. roaches are unnatural. Damn things are almost indestructable. If you cut a roach's head off the only reason it dies is starvation. Now, those things have to be aliens in disguise:) I hear Florida has roaches thesize of small dogs running around, which is one reason I have never been there
