    What Are You Afraid Of?

    Do you have a phobia?

    I am not sure why but I have a bit of a problem with heights. I flew a Cessna 150 several times when I was younger and had know problems. I considered sky diving with no real fear, but the thought of bungee jumping scares me. I have repelled, but looking off the top of a building makes my stomach get butterflies. Maybe repelling was ok because I was going down backwards. I fell out of a tree house when I was a kid and think that is the reason.

    I know one Army Ranger that is scared to death of spiders. Tough guy, but screams like a girl if he sees anything with 8 legs!!!

    What are you scared?
    Do you have a phobia?
    If so why?

    Never tell anyone your fears or secrets, Chi. Folks always come back and use them against you. I told one personal tragedy (not a secret, but not something I broadcast) to someone on this board and, yep, nasty remark eventually emerged. Most people can't help themselves. I should know better.

    From reading some of your posts you come over as being xenophobic, in one thread you were hoping for more bombings in the UK and in another thread you wished for genocide in the middles east. I know your not happy in your situation and life but there is no need for the constant crying and negativity that you come out with on here.

    Good day.

    Ain't no weakness. I have repelled and flew planes and have been thinking of sky diving. Just have the butterflies come when looking off the side of a 5 story building. They can attack me for that if they want!!

    ^ Not a weakness, Chi. But many folks love to store up info on people's weaknesses or pet peeves or down times to use against them when it's to their advantage to do so.

    I'm afraid to see my white underwear turning any other pastel color when my wife is doing the laudry. It took time to teach her not to mix colors and white, nearly ok now but now and then some surprises.

    Thanks for the diagnosis, guys.

    Yes, indeed. Much more of a bread and potatoes man, I am.

    Claustrophobia. fear of confined spaces.
    When I was a kid about 10 they were putting an oil pipeline thru near our house.
    The trenches were dug and the pipes were laying on the ground. Pipes were about 30 feet long and about 14 inches diameter. So I decided it would be fun to crawl thru one. In I wriggled like a snake. But about 10 feet in my shoulders became wedged. I panicked and tensed up, wedging me in even tighter. Then I couldn't breathe properly. Sheer terror! Not sure how long I was in there with nobody around. Maybe a half hour. I couldn't even cry out as I couldn't get a good lung full of air. I had visions of being buried alive. Eventually managed to loosen up and wriggle out, but it was a very long way. Give me the creeps just talking about it now 45 years later.
