Well, I used to be terrified of wasps, hornets, etc. It blighted my youth. I have finally mostly gotten over that...I still don't like them all that much, but I remain calm in their presence now.

I have discovered that if you fear anything, it keeps coming into your life again and again and again...until you finally face the fear and put it to rest. So there you are.

I'm afraid of flying too, but that doesn't stop me from doing it.

slugs, worms or anything without a shell. Snails are fine, they have shells. This one is really bad, because I am a gardner too. I have learned to tolerate worms as long as no one chases me with them, but slugs will put me in the middle of the kitchen table, and Wyoming slugs are REALLY little. I just about lost it reading the Harry Potter book where the boy has a bout of vomiting up.....uh never mind.

Rattlesnakes. They grow big around here by the American River. I've only seen one in the twenty years I've been here, but it gets bigger every time I talk about it. The people across the street have the river behind them, and they get snakes in their yards a few times a year. I'm glad I live on this side of the street, even though they have a terrific view.

Well, Joe, I kinda guess you could say snakes don't have shells, huh? I definitely have a HEALTHY respect for the suckers, and I won't go hunting them for sure! We have our share here too, and this is a bad year for them (well, good if you look at it from their point of veiw) because it is so hot and dry. They are coming to the rivers for moisture because there has been so little rain. It only seems to rain/lightning when I want to go Hearme............

Sharks. I used to have to swim home at night if I was the the last of 3 to call it a evening, we only had 2 dingys. The swim was about a 1/4 - 1/3 of a mile offshore & at 2:oo pm (when the bars closed or the music stopped) it would always start to get spooky about half way home. It was always comforting when I knew that dolphins were seen swimming close by. Always had a change of clothes & a swim suit in the car & could spend the night in it too if things got to spooky. If you asked a shark the same question they'd say dolphins, if you asked a dolphin they'd say not having any sharks around to have fun with. Barry

I have heard the little fishes thing before - some south american river species? - no one has ever explained why the do it though. go Dolphins !! - just revenge for making them jump through hoops to amuse tourists

'there is no such thing as bad publicity' - how much hard disc contains oasis now - ok so a bit more now - well done Mbo are you on commission?

Heights scare me like Lepus-Rex its more the perceived safety rather than the height. Ladders, Ledges, Scaffolding no way!
my garden has very big black slugs and there is no way I could touch one
But hey the most scary thing on the earth is people. What terrible things people do to each other in the name of religion, colour, sexuality, oh any old difference is the thing of nightmares

Being in a room that is totally silent... I will go up the wall with hysteria if I have to sit in silence for longer than about 20 mins. That's why there is a radio in every room and I have 2 portables....

Perhaps that's why I didn't do so well at exams.... all that silence..... I guess I'm terrified of going deaf. I had limited hearing in one ear until I was about 8, and had to go through lots of tests to determine why (malformed ear tube.... got better with age and a doctor who wasn't more keen on horse racing than health issues...)

Ooh...Lepus, I'm with you...HATE being held down, for any reason. If I have to, I'll hold myself down, say for a shot or something...but I don't want ANYONE else to do it for me. And to be held down and tickled is enough to make me come out kicking...aiming for the most sensitive places!

Have no particular phobias about anything else. Started to take a class in overcoming phobias...that's when I found out that I don't really have any. I don't like spiders, but I have no trouble killing them, if they're in my house...if I'm outside, I simply avoid them if I can. REALLY HATE Palmetto bugs,(for those of you who have never lived in Florida, Palmettos are huge flying cockroaches), but I can certainly beat the crap out of them if I have to. Have never found a use for mosquitoes or ticks...except as annoyances for people and animals. Snakes...not fond of them, but can look at and touch them without panicking.

I like flying, but I don't want to learn how to pilot a plane. A little squeamish about high ledges, etc., but not enough that I'd go nuts if I found myself on one. Would just try NOT to look down! I don't like elevators, (particularly crowded ones), but I do ride on them if need be. Prefer escalators. Of course, being relatively phobia-free doesn't mean I'm completely calm or sane either...

Hey, I'm scared of bears too! Forgot about that. I think the best way to deal with them is to make a certain amount of noise, so they can hear you from a long way off...a bell, singing, whatever...they hear you and go the other way and you don't meet them unexpectedly. I think I may just have had a nasty encounter with a bear in one or more "previous" lives, if you know what I mean.

Liz - you're scared of a silent room??? My God, woman, how will you ever meditate and get in touch with your inner self if the damn radio and TV are going all the time? If I had a TV here, I'd shoot it and give it a decent burial in the back yard. As for the radio, it makes a good paperweight for my sheet music.

Oh, well, different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Aaagh! I fear hitting the 'clear entries' box instead of the 'submit message box' after writing a few paragraphs! Here I go again...

Needles! I forgot about my old fear of needles. I'm over it now, but when I was a kid, I'd fight and struggle with doctors trying to take my blood. And dentists had to put me under with gas before putting a needle in my mouth, or I'd shove them away and flee. Good thing I'm over that one. I'd probably get arrested for that now...

And the dolphins... I saw the video of it on Dateline NBC or something like that, a few years ago. Dolphin penises are apparently huge and curved, and it just hooked this around the swimmer's leg like a manacle.

And the little, eurethra-loving fishes... This only happens to men who pee while swimming in the river. If I remember right, they instinctively swim upstream. When they detect the man's 'stream,' they swim right up it, but can't turn back. They have backward curving spines, so can't swim backwards, and just lodge themselves deeper into the poor guy. They die, of course. Infection, surgery... Horror.

Waaiiit... Maybe we could put these in swimming pools? Keep 'em clean? >:)

Silent rooms - I can be as quiet as all get out when I'm outside, in the garden, on the beach etc, mainly because the great outdoors is never truly silent, but because walls block those sounds, I get the screaming phantods.... the thought of never hearing another sound ever...... urrrrgghghghgghgghgh!

I would guess my other phobia is boredom. My idea of hell is to be on a cruise ship, nothing to do but nothing, nowhere to go but the ship..... shoot me in the head now!!

Singing in public. I figured out the other day that some people do extreme sports, I get my adreniline rush from singing in front of people. I get the same rush from public speaking, but it is not as intense because although people can disagree with my point, perspective, or politics, I wouldn't believe them if they said that I was flat or sharp or just off key.

Everything grows really well in the sub-tropics, so we've got thousands (yes, thousands) around our house and garden, and in the hottest months an eight foot python sunbakes in a big mango tree just an arms length away from our rear deck. But thanks to these critters we have no slugs or snails, virtually no rodents and very few flies. Australia has a complete menagerie of potentially dangerous creatures, and it's great sport to regale visitors with tall tales - sharks, salt water crocs, sundry nasty spiders and snakes - but in truth the number of fatalities is very small with the odds probably of the order of a million to one. Smoking, drinking or driving are eminently more hazardous.

What really frightens me is insomnia. Put a few pythons in the room and I'd probably sleep mush better.

Okay, this is gonna creep everybody out...

My job in the last 20 years has involved tracking and collecting rattlesnakes, handling many varieties of snakes as well as rodents in education programs, and training dolphins.

If you'll permit me a moment of indelicacy, here's the deal with dolphin penises: they're prehensile. Yep, it means "grasping", as in primate hands, giraffe tongues, and dolphin 'love snakes', as otherwise stogy scientists are prone to say.

Once, when my job description included the improbable task of warning nubile grad students about how to predict the impending amorous advances of our research dolphins, I had the occasion to be part of the following conversation...

p.j.: "...and so, when you become aware that one of the males has an erection, you should swim over to tankside and end the session..."

Grad Student: "What did you say about his penis?"

p.j.: "It's prehensile. You know, grasping."

(Long, thoughtful pause.)

Grad Student: "I don't know whether to puke or propose..."

By the way, I'm off today to a local vivarium to pick up a tarantula which I'll be using in a series of upcoming presentations next month. He'll live in the kitchen next to the Arizona Mountain Kingsnake. Honest. I guess if any Mudcatters are planning a visit to the Bay Area and want to stay, you should probably know this...

pj

p.s. By the way, after 20 years of peacefully working with tigers, killer whales, attack dogs and every species of that which creeps and crawls, I am ABSOLUTELY DEDICATED to the proposition that bees are out to get me. It's completely irrational, and totally irrefutable. They are hideous, malevalent creatures who must be destroyed. We'll figure out some other way to pollinate things. I'll help. Just get rid of the bees!!! AAAAUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!

Of course, it took me about eight months to get up there, and I'm still inching my way higher.

Just to digress a moment - Lepus Rex discussed the fish which swims up the urethra in a much earlier post. Ironically, I had just read a fiction book which had a passage about this fish and had assumed it was fictional. However, a web search for it (it's called the candiru) proved that it is indeed a real creature. Although some of the comments raised doubts about reported amputations and deaths caused by the candiru, others maintained the veracity of such reports. Apparently, since the fish is parasitic and attaches itself normally to the gills of larger fish, sensing their location by the water flow through the gills, the act of urinating in the water can set up enough of a flow to attract them. The rest is history.

One interesting poem about the situation is here:

Either from Missouri or Pennsylvania, I forget which... I caught him, and made him a little cage, where he lived for about a year and a half. Judging by his development at the time I got him, he was well over 2 years old when he died. VERY low-maintenance pet! And I got to watch his final moult, when he finally grew his wings... Beautiful!

Little Hawk - My hamster isn't too noisy if I give her carrots to wear down her teeth - she doesn't chew on the bars so much then. And I tied the exercise wheel up of the floor of the cage with a contraption of twist ties and elastic bands. Before I did that the weight of her as she was running would slowly cause the wheel to sink, and it would start rasping against the floor of the cage. VERY LOUD! Especially at 3 o'clock in the morning when you've just finally managed to sleep...

Ella - hamsters smell? I hadn't noticed. (I hope that doesn't mean I smell worse than she does!)

~   ~   ~

Mosquitoes are the worst for me.
The sound just sets me on edge, and I can't stand them crawling on me. The one good thing from it is that I haven't been bitten by any of them for years, since I'm so hypersensitive I smack them off as soon as they land!
It's really strange, if there's only one or two, sometimes I'm more scared. I guess cause ya never know *when* they're going to come after ya.
Even thinking about them I start shuddering reflexively.

I'm fine with most creepy crawlies, as long as
a) they're not in the house
b) they're in the house but harmless
c) I have a container to catch them in if they're poisonous and inside the house

Spiders are fine (and they eat mosquitoes!), snakes are cool (although we don't have rattlers here), moths just startle me, I love bats, mice are cute but messy, insomnia only scares me when I have to get up early.

I was afraid of a glass once when I was really suicidal. I had a vivid picture of me breaking it and slashing my wrists. That part of my life is over now, and I never want to feel that way again.

I am afraid of cold, too. And crazy drivers. And what I could do if I ever got *really* angry.
