    Thanks for correcting the mispeak...dually noted and corrected!

    I like the idea of sub-categorizing recognized phobias.

    Coulrophobia is an abnormal or exaggerated fear of clowns. The term is common, but is not commonly used in psychology.[1] The prefix "coulro-" comes from the Ancient Greek κωλοβαθριστής (kōlobathristēs), “one who goes on stilts”.[citation needed] Coulrophobia can also be said to extend to a fear of covering up one's face with paint—the idea of hiding recognisable features under a layer of face paint can also unsettle coulrophobia sufferers.[1]

    Speaking of fears...I wonder why they actually made words for some of them...like seriously, Aulophobia...fear of flutes? Really? Is there a decent enough number of people who have aulophobia to actually have a word for it?


    Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia - Fear of long words (lol)

    Arachibutyrophobia - Fear of peanut butter getting stuck to the roof of your mouth. (My dog has this lol...he's terrified of peanut butter just for that.
    Melophobia - Fear of music.
    Lachanophobia - Fear of vegetables.

    BEES! Bees and wasps and hornets and all those other flying, stinging insects. Motherfuckers need to DIE!

    (honeybees anyway; bumblebees are pretty docile and stupid and tend to leave you alone)

    On the other hand if someone tries to kill a spider in my presence I'll stop them. I'll go way out of my way to stop them. Like, if you tried to kill a spider in front of me I'd tackle you.

    (not counting tarantulas of course; I'd scream like a little girl if I encountered a tarantula in the wild)

    Amused, as soon as I clicked the thread I know it was going to be a revers psychology halloween night. Its energy, comes from somewhere, fears are entirely rational. what is irrational is the precept of the value and belief placements that are in a partial reality.

    I have dreams where because of my (mild) myopathy I end up in a wheelchair and usually ends with me being unable to move. Then I wake up. So paralysis for me too.
