Heights and spiders are my major fears. Although riding stuff like I-305 is helping me get better with the height thing.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Just thinking about them gives me creeps...

Fire's my biggest phobia. I can't even light a match! I also remember coming off the armageddon ride at DLP in tears because of all the fire. (I was only about 9 at the time though!)

^^ Most people have never heard of it. I'm not even sure if it has a scientific name.
But it's definitely serious, I just don't understand why I have it

Lightheartedly, I fear any video game or movie that has to do with mutated things! When I played Halo, I thought it would just be a fun game! Colorful worlds, with human-like aliens (slightly comical even, the Grunts were funny :) ). But then the Flood showed up. :cry:

And from then on, the Flood ends up BEING THE FOCUS of the series. :( I remember I quit playing Halo 2 early because of the Flood. But then a few years later I decided "What the heck, I'm older, I can handle this" and beat the game. Just today I beat Metroid Prime after almost 9 years. I HATE it when games start off warm and colorful, but then ooops, that was a mistake, the game's supposed to be dark, gloomy, full of mutated things :evil: I've still got Halo 3 to beat, it's been 4 years and I'm only 30% through the game. I guess it's time to face my fear and destroy the Flood once and for all.

And to the one with the potato fear, don't feel alone in being afraid of things in the kitchen. I HATE knives! And I also hate skillets filled with oil! Has anyone here ever had the oil pop and blow up on your skin? NOOOO!!! Every pop makes me squeal like a girl :lmao:

Suprising for me- I work in the airline industry, and I love coasters... I'm terrified of HEIGHTS.

I have real problems in tall buildings, I don't go over mountain roads if avoidable, and I try to make sure to get low seats in theaters- as I've had bad panic attacks in such places- it means no road trips over mountains, I won't go to the top of the Stratosphere, I get low hotel rooms when on travel, and I avoid window seats on planes.

I'll one-up you here and say that having oil fly into your eye is 1,000x worse than on the skin. Just sayin'. :p

I have mild claustrophobia. It's nothing intense, like crowded elevators and such, but its more of the confined spaces where it's hard to move freely, there's not much room int he space, and you can't get out that easily. I have a hard time with that.
