Used to have some ophidiaphobia after a run-in with a massive python when I was in South Africa in 2004. Being 11 years old getting bitten by a 12+ foot long snake was pure unfiltered terror.

Can't believe I've pretty much gotten over the fear after going through something as traumatic as that.

Dogs, SOPA, high-up seats in IMAX dome theaters, college, marriage, dying young, X2, and SEFK are a few examples.

Oh, and airplanes, laser eye surgery, tanning beds...

Even though I don't have a driver's lisence, being in the car at night in an unfamiliar place freaks me out. Even if my parents or whoever is driving knows the way around I still get uneasy. Actually, thanks to a bunch of night terrors I've had, driving in general makes me uneasy.

I think the back row to offers the best seats in the house. I feel it maximizes the sensation of flying, though I can't be certain since I never bother with other rows! Then again, at my local theater you must exit to a high indoor skybridge, so sitting low wouldn't help in that regard.

Elevators and bees are my phobias.

I don't have anything that I'm afraid of. If anything startles me I'll attack it. That goes for people, animals, etc. I can't do haunted houses for that reason. I'm not afraid but if something scares me my first reaction is to throw a punch.

I'm not too fond of elevators either. Again, I'm not afraid of them but I don't like how in the case of an emergency you can get stuck in them. I'd rather take the stairs.

Mantis(pun intended)

Pretty much all kinds of insects especially cockroaches. Spiders and Scorpions are my nightmares too. Japanese creepy horror movies scare me much more than the Hollywood ones with bloody scenes.

I think my biggest fear is being buried alive. Even with new technology and medicines, I still fear of waking up after I've been put to rest. Maybe I'll just get cremated so there's no possible way of it ever happening.

Heights used to be a major fear of mine but I feel like I'm starting to get over it. They never bothered me on roller coasters(obviously), but in certain situations they freaked me out. Hell, the first time I went on the Eiffel Tower at Kings Dominion, I was terrified to even stand near the rails to look out. I stayed as close as I could to the center as much as possible. :lol: Now a days heights don't bother me as much.

I'm not afraid of height at all but when I stand at the edge of somewhere really high like the top of a skyscraper or a cliff, I always feel like some magic force is trying to pull me towards the edge. It feels so strange that now I'm trying to stay away from anywhere high if there's no safety device.
