    The Implosion Of The Sun.

    It is not as much a fear as a concern for me. But I just fear the fact that the sun, a big ball of violent gas, could easily destroy itself. It only worries me after I watched a documentary of it, and though I enjoy being out on a summers day, the thought is always in the back of...

    It's not a great great fear,

    but when I look up at a clear sky sometimes I feel like I'm looking down from the top of the skyscraper. It's weird :P

    I really hate and freak out driving up

    or down steep Hills. This wouldn't be so strange, but I live in South Texas! It relatively flat, a rolling Hill can cause my pulse to jump! Just plain stupid, I try not to freak out but I just can't help it!

    Goldfish... Yes, Goldfish.

    I'm not afraid of alot.. Actually, I have one true fear, and that fear is Goldfish. I am absolutley terrified of the most harmless animal. I can't walk by a goldfish tank without going into a panic attack. I'm not afraid of other fish, just those dang goldfish. It's really weird...

    I have an irrational fear of holes.

    . Just the word makes me cringe. So this will be short. I googled it last year for the hell of it and up came trypophobia . I know the reason for the fear and I don't blame my primary school teacher (I was 8) but the fact I followed everyone of my classmates when the teacher...

    My fear is becoming my biological father.

    He was a **** to my mother and my older sister while completely ignoring me most of the time as if I scared him- from what my mom tells me. Anyway, he hurt my family in more ways then one. And I don't want to do that. He was unfaithful to my mom and I don't want to become that...

    For reasons I'm not sure of,

    I'm afraid of closing my eyes while I shower. I can do normal blinking and all that but if I have them closed for more than a few seconds (such as when I'm washing product out of my hair or face) I panic and imagine the girl from The Ring (or The Grudge?) will be in front of me...

    Small Breasts.

    I am completely uneasy whenever I'm around or happen to see a picture of a girl with small breasts. I get sick to my stomach and can't look at them. I have always been this way as long as I remember. Everyone I tell seems to find it comical. No one understands how worried I...

    Metal Tape Measures

    When I was tiny, my dad told me that if I played with the tape measure, it would cut my fingers off. It's got to the point where I can't be in the same room as someone as they use it.  The metal ones that zip in and out of the case really quickly.. just typing about it...

    but I'm dead afraid of storms. It's called Brontophobia. I've always been afraid since I was small. I still burrow under my blankets with my fingers blocking my ears, making sure I can't see or hear anything that's going on outside. There's just something about the thunder and...

    My greatest fear, which I guess could be

    considered weird, is time. I'm not saying I'll be afraid of a clock, but more of how we use it in our lives. A minute is a larger amount of time than the majority of people think. You can complete any simple tasks within a minute. We seem to waste a majority of our minutes on a...

    Technically I'm Not Afraid...

    Chronomentrophobia..... Fear of clocks... And technically I'm not afraid, but if I'm in the room with a clock that has a second hand...   Oh my Gosh! It's smashed, destroyed, annihilated. I can't stand second hands. It's weird.       Anybody else?

    I have a fear of being completely alone.

    Police

    I'm an average, honest, law-abiding citizen, but since I was arrested for a bullshit bogus disturbing the peace charge six years ago, I have had a severe and debilitating fear of police officers.
