    I get scared of a "lizard". Last august, I stepped bare foot on a lizard by mistake and it was killed. I kept shivering for 10-15 minutes with fear. What scares you?

    You need to build a fear pyramid.

    Start with the things that you are afraid of least and build up so that you are facing the thing that you are afraid of most. Creepy-crawlies are at the bottom of most people's. I'm not afraid of them, I just think they're disgusting. Midway could be a fear of heights. The top may be fear of street violence or something like that.

    These are all things that are tangible and can be encountered. It is not recommended that you try to get by a fear of death / losing your job / losing your family by facing it!

    Needles (especially IVs or having blood taken)! Although I have never actually fainted, I normally come very close. It is all in my mind, I know, but . . .

    It's not the pain either - that's pretty minimal. It's the thought of having a piece of metal shoved up a vein, where it doesn't belong and where it could potentially rip a hole, causing me to bleed to death. I am equally afraid of seeing other people get stabbed with needles, so if and when I have kids, their father will be the one going to the doctor with them.

    I am afraid of SPIDERS...I will scream loudly if I find one all the sudden...actually any type of bug or insect I scream...but spiders the most. So aracnophobia (sp?)...

    I am afraid of heights, but love planes...

    I am afraid of death I guess, but not really. I am afraid of pain but thats natual isn't it?

    Is there really a spider that you can die from looking at it?

    Not to freak you out Saltire, but Australia has the largest percentage of deadly animals per capita than any other countries on the world.

    Per capita?? So it is like there are 5 deadly animals for each person

    Anyway onto the topic at hand..
    These scare me::
    - Getting my fingers chopped off one by one by the russian mafia.
    - Biological or Nucleur warfare.
    - Getting injured in such a way that i may not be able to have children.
    - Anyone that has been asked not to have children "to help purify the gene pool".
    - Eating a fly/ant etc..ewww!

    So if you needed any more proof that i am extremely unusual there it goes

    Did you know that the Daddy Long Legs' venom is more deadly than the Black Widows? It's just that its mouth is too small to bite humans.

    Hey, I thought I was the only one! I did it, too!

    Hehe, talking about eating flies. Once we were playing cricket, when I shouted at one of my friends, JaMaAAaAaAAaAALLL (real name JAMAL) and a fly entered into my mouth. YUcK!

    The next day at the same place the same thing happened again.

    Guess what happened the third day????


    I didn't play there :-)

    I'm scared of of nailing a huge ski jump and breaking my legs, or dieing

    It's kind of like peer pressure (well actualy it is). Somtimes you just don't want to hit a jump but you do anyway, it usally ends up hurting

    I can't think of anything I havn't sprained, I a got 3 concussions this ski season so far.

    Good thing it's over in a few days, I don't think my body can take anymore.

    Hmm, What scares me.. Eh.. I'm kind of a big fella..

    Waking up at night and seeing a cute little grey scary Alein. Now, that would freak me out.

    Another one.. hmm.. I am outside constantly, and I camp and 4 wheel and stuff all the time.. Hearing sounds at night that I can't tell were they are, no, not sounds of animals, but abnormal sounds. I've heard them before, and they're nothing I care for.

    Swimming in the ocean, scary.. brrr, who knows what little critters will get me..
