anything at all.
death, bugs, being alone.....everyone fears something....what is yours.

i fear death greatly..i mean there is no way to express how much i fear that. i am pretty darn afraid of snakes. i am also pretty friggin scared of heights....
it has to be pretty high up....i could handle being on a ladder or on the roof of my house but you are not going to catch me on some monster, high ride at some amusement way, no how..

of course i am also afraid of something horrible happening to my wife or son. i am sure anyone and everyone has that fear though.

oh yeah, rats and, i want NOTHING to do with those dudes...when i worked at the pet store, people would come in and want to get rats or mice for their snakes to eat and i could not grab them....i used to always have the customer come back to the employee only area and get them out of the cage way i could handle touching them..

i don't know what it is about them but they freak me out like you wouldn't believe...

so, what are your fears?

Apart from The Trouble, Rats!
I am absolutely petrified of them.
I refuse to go anywhere near them.

Oh, and penalty shoot outs when England are playing football.

My local pub had an infestation a few years ago and it petrified me.
On the odd occassion it was possible to hear them scurrying about.
It scared the living daylights out of me; cold sweat, palpitations etc.
Much to the amusement of my mates.

They are the one animal I would love to see extinct.
Little chance of that though, they are an exceptionally resilient species.

I am afraid of the unknown -- the 'what if's' -- but mostly being alone in the dark and anything that goes bump in the night. EEEEE! See? I now I scared myself!

Im afraid of going insane and being to crazy to know it.

And I'm afraid that my current girl friend is going to murder me in my sleep.

I am afraid of the future. And the past a lot. And also the present sometimes.

I'm afraid of scorpions. We used to get them in the house all the time where I lived in Arizona. I still shake my shoes out even though I moved out of that state 4 years ago!

I am also terrified of driving over large bridges. Especially ones that go over water.

lol. I check the toilet seats every time because where I used to live we caught a couple big spiders inside, just waiting...

I don't necessarily mind spiders, but then again, in some cases, I do.

In a person's... face?

I only heard about a myth where someone didn't cut their hair or brush it or shower for a very long time. He didn't know that spiders lived and laid eggs on top of his head in his hair. They finally cut it, but the spiders that nested on top of his head bit him and he died.

posted on Feb, 5 2008 @ 08:24 AM
No there is another one where the spiders nest in the persons face, and it bursts like a zit, and little baby spiders crawl all over the persons face!
It's gross.......they used it in couple movies, and I think Urban Legend is one.
i hate spiders.......

I think you know by now I am afraid of getting old and dieing. I am also afraid of being locked up. I did it for six months and I thought I was going to come out mumbling to myself. As for rats Im not saying I would own any but they are actualy very docile, intelligent animals. Rats are also neat freaks and are very clean. The last thing a rat wants to do is bite and will use bitting as a last resort when overly provoked. Dont know why but I just thought Id stand up for the little guys.

Cockroaches. Emotionally scarred by an attack by a squadron of flying roaches when I was five. I still freak out when they catch me off guard, but if I spot them first... let's just say that the outcome is as varied as it is violent. They bring out the evil in me provided I spot them first, otherwise they bring out the pussy in me

My greatest fear is life without my mother. I honestly don't know what I will do when she has to go, the very thought breaks my heart. So I need to do some soul searching I guess, cause that is inevitable.

Yep moths too, I can't stand seeing em let alone one in the house. I always duck through the front door of houses cause there's usually one that wants to greet me.

Why do they always come after you when you spray em/try to swat em with the shoe ? lol wth ? My kitty Amari had the most amused look on her when I was doing battle with one a few weeks ago lol I feel like such an idiot but I can't help running around like a lil girl yelping n freaking out

can't say I fear too much else. Roland Deschain brought up being put under for surgery and being conscious, now that I think about that, hell yeah! lol that cannot be cool, I saw that movie Awake

Moths aren't bad.
Just light a fire, and watch them go Kamikazes on themselves!
It's kinda cool to watch.
