I am a bit scared of holes, I don't like falling in them I suppose…

My main fear are spirals however. I feared them even before I read Uzumaki, And now that I've read it I fear it even more. The scary thing is that my neighborhoud is also kind of spirally… my street runs in a spiral, A tree in front of my house used to have one spiral branch before I tore it off and lastly my neighbor has a fountain in his front yard that sends the water upwards in a spiral.

I hate spirals…

lamprey-teeth-in-finger photoshop
Oh! So those were lamprey mouths? I always wondered what they were using in those pictures.

My ex once fell for a viral chain letter that warned about buying bras made in China. It claimed that a woman bought one such bra from a discount bin and it contained insect eggs that got into her nipples and well… the picture that followed the letter was a photoshoped composite of a female breast and that thing that same posted. Even though I knew it was fake, it was still one of the most sickening things I had ever seen.

Youre talking a bout lotus boob. And yeah. You can guess where the lamprey was photoshopped. Its like a finger… only men have them… and it makes you cringe just looking at the picture.
I got those picsin a chain mail and I was like LMAO. Then I sent a reply back telling the sender to stop being so gullible.

I don't have a love of bugs or spineless things, but even photoshopped, you can look at them and figure out what's real and what's not and know that there's nothing to worry about.

Something like necrotizing fasciitis, those pics make me feel sad. It's not like “lampreynis.” It's not common, but it could happen. And it did happen to all those people in the image search. I think things like that is why I'm afraid of scraping my skin or sticking my hand somewhere I can't see clearly.

I guess my irrational fear is that I'm a little bit mysophobic. Not a lot, though. Raw bacon tastes good!

I choked on a cigarette filter this morning and ever since ive felt violated. So i guess things going where they arent supposed to would scare me. And no “In the butt” jokes please.




Wut wut.

Worst nightmare? Endlessly falling in a vacuum. No air, no light, just endless space. Odd since I'm not normally phobic of suffocating and falling. Hell, I scuba dive and sky dive for fun.

Worst fear? Spiders and Wrongful Punishment.

I find mirrors have the best potential to be frightening. One of my biggest paranormal/hypothetical fears would be to either see something in a mirror that wasn't present in reality, to have something in reality that didn't reflect from a mirror, or to have the reflection subtly different than reality. The more mundane the object, the more frightening it is – like a red apple reflects as a green apple or if one pencil in a pencil holder apparently has no reflection.

These are the weird thoughts that creep into my mind and give me insomnia. :P Or if I feel like I want to have the fear feeling, I'll stare in a mirror and make myself imagine things like that.

What? It's not hard for life down there at all. the pressure for them is normal since it's all they ever know- their bodies are perfectly equalised with it anyway. If you bring them up here it's a bit like putting them in a vacuum. The low heat and light is also normal. Things are relative ;)


I fear this day will never end. -_-

That kinda reminds me of this one patient my mother had to deal with…you see, this woman had become morbidly obese and, as a result of her terrible eating habits, also had diabetes. Her complete inactivity and immense weight actually cut off the oxygen to the skin in the folds of her fat, so she developed necrotizing fasciitis in those areas. If that's not a damn good reason to watch your weight, I don't know what is.

What's really sad is that she and her family weren't willing to do anything about it. She refused to do even the simplest of excercises and her family snuck food to her.

My girlfriends family are like that. Always feeding her junk food and never helping her exercise or encuraging her. I go on walks with her to help her loose weight and in the process i stay healthy. Life is hard when youve noone willing to help you when you clearly need it.

i am very afraid of things stealing my blood.

needles, leeches, lampreys, vampires, etc.

i have kicked a dentist for even coming near me with a needle without warning, and have almost passed out from watching a film on leeches… i will not be donating blood ever so i'm glad i don't have a super rare blood type…

I just had to fight off this urge to tell a very sexist joke, involving a monthly situation.
Those were my two cents.

Don't fight it PP! Let your sexism consume you!

…I think I was going for an Empire Strikes Back joke there… Or something?


My mum is deathly afraid of many things. Among them:
-Cockroaches.
-Lightning.
-Heights.
-Small spaces.
-Big dogs.

So I don't like watching operations, and that scene in the famous surrealist film (can't recall what it's call? Cabinet of Dr Caligari?) where there's a close up of the guy slicing the woman's eyeball open with a razor blade is revolting.

I once paper cut my eye ball once. Not very deep, just through the clear membrane, but still.

That is not something you should be proud of.

Ditto. I'm totally comfortable watching autopsies and was completely at home when we had to dissect things in high school (although the smell of the damn formaldehyde did get to after a while) but I can't stand those medical shows where the camera's practically right in the incision. Who knows, maybe I'd be able to watch the real thing in front of me because I wouldn't be sticking my nose right in the middle of everything. Stupid TMI (Too Much Information) camera angles.

well you see, it was during french class and we each had a blue piece of paper and a pink piece of paper and when the teacher said a vocab word, we had to hold up blue for masculine words and pink for feminine words. Well I held up one of the cards… straight into my eyeball.
