Well, the conversation in Food and Drink that turned to Fear Factor, made me wonder what this bunch of big tough (or little tough) Satanists are scared of? Or probably, have overcome a fear of. One would hope that no Satanists have yet to face up to and overcome their fears (depending on age I guess).

Anyway, thought I'd start a thread on it, but feel free to talk about Fear Factor also, as that way we shouldn't hijack the odd foods thread.

Here goes, when I was a little kid I was told that ghosts and aliens were real, so they were my fears when I was younger. Henceforth I was scared of the dark and didn't actually kick that one until I had my own children, so I slept with a nightlight (when alone) until I was in my late 20's. Sad but true. I lived in the country until I was about 16, so I wouldn't let my Mum leave me at home alone at night. I was alright in the city. In the city there was only robbers, rapists etc to worry about and for some reason real threats like that didn't bother me, it was the dubious ones that worried me. I'm not at all scared of the dark now, though. I guess once you have to start helping your own kids through their fears and are the head of the house, you work through these things.

As for fear factor, I would love to do a show like that if it wasn't for the horrible food. It's not so much that I'm scared of it, but that I have a very weak stomach and wouldn't have a hope in hell of eating some of that stuff without gagging etc. The spiders, snakes, crawly bugs etc wouldn't bother me, I mean the spiders would, but not that much that I wouldn't give them a red hot go and try to overcome them. And heights are a breeze.

One thing I did see on Fear Factor, that I think would have been pretty difficult for anyone, was they had to crawl into an alligator's hole, with the alligator inside. Of course it was tethered, but even so, it could move a fair bit and it's mouth wasn't roped close. They had to get into it from under the water (only shallow) and retrieve a ball that was next to the alligator tail.

Fear Factor: Country Style

A bunch of buddies and I were playing soccer in the field closest to my house in late fall when someone tripped over the elctrical wiring to keep the cattle within the field. The cattle had just been brought in a day or two ago, but all the same my friend [Alex] tripped over and yelled the classic "OW!". He then said that he thought it shocked him. Another friend and I told him that by now it would be off but he continued on saying no it has to be on. So he dared the farmer buddy of mine that seemingly was so sure it was off, to 'Piss on the fence'. HE said if every one gave him a dollar then he would do it. I gladly forked over a buck 50 to see this hilariously classic display of stupidity.

Much to his dismay the fence WAS indeed on. A sad day for him, I remember him in tears. We laughed at him for awhile then as the tears cleared away he laughed as well. The stupid things we enjoy in life. Haha.



I think most children go through that Fear Factor or 'Jackass' time in there life where a bunch of friends gather around and agree to do some stupid shit. Over a span of 4 and a half months we grabbed the Video Camera and decidely took it out to film some of our own 'Jackass'. I stil watch it and it is filled with some of the funniest shit ever.. People I've shown it too have glady handed the 'Trophy of having Most Balls' to us.

A few examples: Garter Snakes commonly nest together in huge piles. The sight of it can be a rare one but can often give you a case of the jitters. They aren't dangerous but they do bite and if you would let's say, happen to fall into one.. The consequence qould be the disturbance of said snakes, and nearing close to a 150 pissed of snakes trying to bite whatever is fucking with them. It will hurt. So naturally we had a bit of fun.

We set up ramps on one side of the pit, the goal: Take the mountain bike and clear the ramp and pit. Sounds simple enough. Except for the fact that there was one of the guys standing 20 ft from the pit with a potato gun ready to be fired at you. So the faster you went the more chance you had. [Oh did I mention going to far and having not enough control over the bike after the jump would land you in a SHIT LOAD of Poison Ivy?] Johnny boy actually got hit in the head with the potato gun and ended up kocked over sideways landing in the snake pit. Which resulted in thrashing little snakes biting like crazy. He couldn't get much of a foothold to get out but he did eventually. We ran over and gave him a hand out. When he got out he had small bite marks all over his body and still had one trying to bite through his shirt. Oh the good times. Oh and he has a perpetual fear of snakes now by the way.


This was one of my favorites: Stick On A Shit

My friend Alex had this farm right, and a HUGE pile of manure. Then about 50-60 ft above that was this parralel beam. The shit was like covered but not in a buliding. [Like a Covered Bridge]. So we got some broom handles, padded them up, and had a tournament of 7 people. The winner would go on, the loser, 'was the shit'. The goal was to knock your opponent off into the pile of shit. I ended up losing in my second fight, got that sucked. Yes, I fell into the pile of shit. Of course then the winner was boasting with pride after that. So naturally, we had to do something. We all ganged up grabbed him and threw him in. Lol the good times, oh I do so miss them.

I'm curious to see what other people have done as a child maybe? Of even maybe crazy shit they've done when they were older that involved fear of some sort.

I think it is hard one two answer. LaVey talks about how morality and taboos are not a bad thing, but a good because of the chill you get when you do something forbidden. I think this is true.

I remember when as a child I could get a good scare by doing something "dangerous" like trying the biggest rollercoaster or walking in a scary place at night. As a grown up I find that most of these things are gone. I am not afraid of the dark, snakes, rats, spiders and so on and I don't believe in any monsters except the human kind. Feces and piss is not something I want to deal with, but after having two kids in diapers you get used to it. Strange kinds of food? Sure, there are stuff I wouldn't want to eat, but I have tried to cook frogs, snails, alligator and so on. If I had to, I would/could eat anything I guess. Rollercoaster? Don't like them anymore. I can take any ride if I have to, but I don't get a trill by doing so. Sexual taboos? Been there, done that. Couldn't really find any taboos to deal with. What do I fear today? Stuff like global warming, the prise of gasoline, getting cancer and stuff like that. Nothing a kind of fear you can get a good thrill from.

My best advice: If you have any fears or taboos don't necessarily try to overcome them. You will probably just miss the thrill, and creating new taboos and fears doesn't come easy.

I ignorantly didn't even think of fears you don't get a thrill from and thank you Amina for bringign that up. Price of gas and Global Warming are two things I too find at times frightening. Also the World Food Crisis that is in process. I also fear getting fat, the same routine every day, and becoming hideously looking. [Yes it seems I can be at times quite vain]. I don't know why, suppose it has a lot to do with not wanting people to think I'm some disgusting nobody? Well anyway, there are millions of things to fear in this world, I suppose it just depends on either how ignorant you are, or how intelligent.

I guess that is yet another kind of fear: the fear of loosing what you got. Now you mention it, I guess this is yet another kind of fear you don't want to loose. The only way you can be sure not to loose anything you got is to not have anything in the first place. Don't ever get a good job, a good home, a good health, kids, a partner, friends, pets, good looks and so on. The fear of loosing is a natural part of having and keeping something worthwhile in the first place, so this is yet another kind of fear you need.

Yes, I can see what you are saying, but I just thought of a fear that borders on outright paranoina and that's having my breathing cut off.

I can only hold my breath for a paltry 30 odd seconds and if someone jokingly holds me under water I go absolutely beserk. No choking erotica for me. LOL. It's not a taboo thing, it's an outright fear. I was thinking about that last night after I posted actually. Obviously it's the type of fear that I don't really need to loose though to function properly in life. Some peoples fears do stop them from functioning properly though.

The only tangible thing that scares me is bugs. Specifically spiders. I can be around them, observe them, get near them. But when they are on the move, or somehow blocking my path or someplace I have to put my hands. Oh hell no!!! I cringe and roll into a fetal mass. I have been held at bay by a simple spider. I don't want to kill them. But am nervous about removing them in a humane manner. Partly the reason I have a giant ass spider tattooed on my elbow. I can trace my apprehension back to my youth. We would play in the woods and around the town. Often engaging in variations of "guns". Break up into teams, try to "kill" each other. While playing this game, I spied a drainage ditch that would provide the perfect cover for a sniper or ambush attack. I plunged headlong into the pipe. Only to be greated by sticking my face into a web supporting the biggest yellow and black spider I have ever had the misfortune of being centimeters away from. My memory tells me this spider was as long as an adult's open hand, hairy, and literally on my face. I wigged out. I am also nervous about losing what I hold on to. I enjoy a particular lifestyle. I hate my job. But it allows me to enjoy that lifestyle. So instead of quitting and looking for something that pays less, but would put a smile on my face going to work each morning, I grumpily slog to work. I get nervous around cops. 90% of the time I am law abiding. But I still get a little twitchy when one is following me in traffic. I usually find the first place to duck off into without attracting attention and let the officer roll by.

Fear Factor. If it were not for the food, and possible spider, I would kill on that show. All the stunts and challenges were a piece of cake to me. I could flip a car, crawl across beams 100 feet in the air, swim in chum and dive for a key. Eat rotten cow balls, goat eyes, worms, or lay in a bed of spiders? Hell no. I can not handle weird food textures, tastes, or cuts of meat. Were it not for soju and buddies, I would not have eaten the live squid in Korea. My wife loves menudo. I won't eat any more than sips of the broth. I won't eat tongue, kidney, liver, heart, eye, balls, gelatinous goop, or anything that I know ahead of time didn't come from a cow, pig, goat, or chicken muscle.

I could go for days with stunts and dumb shit I pulled. A few highlights from my career of defying death and dismemberment. Playing "guns" with bb guns. Using M80s as weapons. Holding fire crackers in my fingers till they explode. Cliff diving. Lighting myself on fire.

I once got arrested for reckless endangerment for going 45mph on my skateboard. There was a monster hill near my house. Angled at like 60 degrees and going for nearly a mile. I would ride my skateboard down the hill luge style. One time a cop was hiding to trap cars that were speeding down the hill. This hill was in a park and the posted speed limit was 5 mph. He clocked me going 45 and promptly pulled me over. Since I had no helmet, protective gear, was dressed in a tee shirt and shorts, and was going in excess of 40 miles over the speed limit, he arrested me and booked me for reckless endangerment. I had to pay a hefty fine(my parents actually, which I then had to pay them off).

I would play a game with my Army buddies called "Whose the Man"? We would attempt to one up each other with stunts and feats. We were camping out on the beach one time with our girlfriends. Drunkeness "whose the man" ensued. I remember my best friend one upped me somehow. Then to gloat, he stood in the fire we had going and started chanting "whose the man, whose the man"? I turned to my soon to be wife and said I am. I took a cup of kerosene, poured it in my mouth, and spit it on the fire. An inferno quickly engulfed him and singed off all his hair, including some on his head. He jumped out and was blubbering like a baby. I asked him, "whose the man now"? Needless to say, his girl was pissed at me, he was pissed at me, and the rest of the night sucked.

We used to ride at a bmx dirt track we had built. We built a monster jump in one section. I figured out that if we put a sheet of plywood on the curb, we could get a head start and hit that jump and fly. We began going for records. Stacking tires to see who could go the highest and over them. Then we stretched them out to see who could go the furthest. After a few practice runs, I was ready to decimate all competition and lay down both a distance and height record that would never be matched. I figured out that by going around the corner, there was another paved, steep ass hill. It would give me the momentum and as long as I could make the curve and maintain the momentum when I hit the dirt track, I would be flying. I had them stack 7 tires up on top of each other, and then layed 6 people on the ground shoulder to shoulder after the tire stack. Brave idiots they were. I climbed the hill and peddled for all it was worth. I made the corner and was hauling ass. I cleared the 7 tires, cleared the human landing strip with ease, and sailed on for quite a distance. Upon landing, my face met the handle bars, my balls met the seat, and I ended up crashing Evel Knevil style in the bushes. But I set a record that no one else even had the nuts to attempt. It was later that day that Mt St Helens erupted and sent a black ass cloud into town. It obliterated all light and dumped a shit load of ash all over town. Good times!!!

I fear many things, but I figure half the battle is won by simply admitting them.

#1. Spiders
I'm with FP on this one, except I couldn't even go NEAR one without freaking out. Even Daddy Longlegs had me armed with a broom, ready to sweep those spindly-legged bastards out of my house! Tarantulas, wolf spiders and brown recluses? Uh-uh. "Arachaphobia" was simply out of the question for me. I didn't even want to see the trailers for it on tv. I'd imagine that if my bare feet poked out from under my sheets, they'd be open to attack from giant tarantulas.

But since last year, when I had a small "neutral" wolf spider living above my doorway, my attitudes have changed. You see, this little guy/gal had built a small web in the crack above my doorway. It never moved from its place (I did see it move several times, so I know it wasn't dead!), and one night I came home to see that it had caught a brown recluse in its web. At the time I didn't know that wolf spiders preyed on recluses, but I was thrilled all the same. I struck a deal with him--if he didn't jump on me as I was walking through my front door, I wouldn't kill him. Sparky (so I named him) and I had a great relationship. But one day I found him missing, and was sad to see him gone. A few weeks later, washing dishes in the kitchen, I happened to look down just as a 2 1/2" spider nearly runs across my foot! He was so fast, but I could tell it wasn't a recluse by its dark color and length of its legs. I was actually happy to see a spider in my house. A few nights later, in my room getting my freak on with my boyfriend, I noticed this same spider chilling out in the corner of my room. I couldn't help but keep an eye on him, as he kept inching closer and closer to the bed where we lay sprawled, butt-naked. I couldn't reach to where he was "perched", so I had my boyfriend hold a cup over him while I got a piece of paper to slip under him. I think it was Sparky, and he had wandered into the house. I took a couple of pictures of him before I let him outside:



That little bastard changed the way I think about spiders.

#2. Nightmares

I have incredibly vivid dreams, and lucky for me, the clearest and most memorable ones are nightmares. Monsters chasing me that I can never out-run. Creatures ripping the beating hearts out of chest cavities to eat. Inhuman things wearing the skin of a human, but stare at me with dead eyes. Traveling to other worlds. Being sucked out into the vacuum of space and having all the liquids in my body start to boil. Tornados of fire. Nuclear bombs detonating and being caught in the wave of fire from the blast.

I used to be able to actually see things in the dark. For instance, as a little kid, sometimes I'd crawl into my parents' bed if I was scared. I'd lie awake between them, staring up at the ceiling fan. Something out of the corner of my eye caught my attention. A face, green and glowing and hideous, would part a hole with his long, nailed hands in the wall that the headboard was against. It would stick its entire face out, look around, and then look straight down at me until I closed my eyes and made it go away. That happened several times.

Another strange (but singular) incident happened around the same age. I wasn't tired when I was sent to bed. There was a window that my bed was placed across, so I could sit up and put my head against the glass and look outside. I was bored, and was staring at the light of a streetlamp across the street. Out of nowhere, the light detached itself, swooped down, and started heading straight for my window! I jerked back and started screaming. My mom and dad came running in, and I was so little (probably 3 or 4) that I couldn't manage a coherent response. How in the hell could I just describe what I'd seen?

#3 Driving

I like to drive. I live in a busy area (we have a million people living just in Pinellas County according to the 2006 Census). But the past couple of years, after driving to Orlando to visit my aunt and uncle, or paying a visit to my dad down in Fort Myers (both cities are about a 2 hr drive on the interstate), I'll have an attack almost like PTSD. It won't come upon me until I'm just about ready to go to bed, but out of nowhere, I'll start imagining all the horrible accidents I could've gotten into on the road, my heart pounding in my chest. Doing about 80 the whole way, whoa, almost got side-swiped by that idiot in the SUV, or almost rear-ended that guy when he slammed his brakes on--shit like that. It'll keep me awake for at least an hour until I fall asleep. When I'm actually driving, I'm cool as a cucumber. I've even purposefully tried to do calming exercises while on the interstate, even though at the time I'm not stressed, but hoping that it will have an effect on my subconscious.

But, that's a few of my fears. Hope you enjoyed the sampler platter.

What an interesting thread ZephyrGirl… Where to begin… Where to stop?

I myself have never been afraid of what I may become, how I look, or what anyone thinks of me… A few things that have bothered me in the past and present follow…

Spirits or ghosts…

I myself had a fear as a child overhearing something my mother and grandmother were talking about… I believe I heard them say that spirits talked to you when you slept… Well this scared me so badly as a child I started cocooning myself in my blankets making sure my ears were always covered… Funny that even now that style of sleeping is still the norm for me even though I no longer fear spirits…

Drowning…

As a child I had an experience at a very young age with walking out too far from the beach… Lets say I found deep water very quickly… Without having a memory of that day until I said to myself one day at age 30, why do I hold my breath when washing my hair in the shower? This after being told that my bad habits were something I could never change having lived so long with them… Never being one to think that I could not understand the things I do or change them I set out to understand and then correct that habit… I no longer hold my breath washing my hair, I do tend to spit a lot though… Go figure…

Fear of heights…

I myself am one that gets dizzy staring up at tall buildings… I remember this from being a very small child… At times three steps up a ladder is too high for me yet I will force myself as high as I need be to get a job done… I overcame quite a bit hiking along cliffs that were quite high crossing waterfalls that were rushing underneath us… But I was truly impressed seeing rescue men run down steep inclines that I myself took very cautiously to scoop out the lifeless body of that silly man that tried to repel with clothesline…

My new shop has a ten and a half foot tall ceiling… I am not looking forward to painting the trim standing on that ladder at all… Good thing free tattoos will find many that are willing to paint…

Fear of death being the end…

Yes even as a young man I had a great fear that dying was the end of it all… I feared my loved ones dying as well… As I grew I began to accept that no one has yet defeated death… The chances that I myself would were very slim indeed and why ponder over something that no man can control… It would be nice if someday our thoughts can be saved in a computer or our lives extended by becoming H+ but alas it will not happen in my lifetime…

Fear of those I love not moving on when I am gone…

This is my greatest fear of all now… I always tell my girl to move on when I am gone and just get over it because I for one will not care anymore… I fear how she will handle it and that she will be able to find someone that will care for her needs as well as I… All I can hope for is that everything I taught her about running a tattoo shop will kick in and she will be able to keep my business in place long after I am gone…

~T~

By the way eating gross shit and or laying in a bunch of biting things has never been my idea of an example of being a smart individual…

I think most guys (and girls) grow out of that sort of thing as they get older. I don't think anyone thinks it's smart, but it's a very real part of human nature when we are younger. That wanting to impress your mates or be the bigger man.

It's the ones that are still doing it into their 30's and 40's that you have to wonder about.

Funny I never felt the need to prove myself bigger or better to anyone even as a child... When we were jumping our bikes over a large sand pile we were simply having fun...

But I agree with what you say...

Entrapment, and I mean the literal political crooked cop entrapment.

I fear my end. Not so much the death part though.

I fear slavery and inherent government ruling, overthrown republics, and casual chronology or periodicity.

I fear obsessive compulsive or bi-polar women. Not physically or mentally, it's on another level. That's where my nightmares come from.....that and cold concrete.

I fear causality.

As far as phobias go though I haven't any that I know of.

My biggest fear, is the one which I struggle with most often. The fear of not having enough control of my life. I despise having my "strings" pulled, and made to dance by any puppeteer.

Although I realize that it is almost impossible in today's society to be completely "off the grid" and "radar," non the less, that is what I am aiming for.

Hence, I fear becoming old, and eventually dying without ever experiencing complete and total freedom, and "Self Actualization."

Nemesis, you would hate where I love and probabally where Zeph is living. I walk out my door and find spiders twice as big and juicy as that. I love spiders, as long as I know where it is and doesn't surprise me by crawling up onto my shoulder or something. I can let it crawl on my hand, as long as I can see it I'm good. I don't know if I so much hate as I am really afraid of blackflies and horseflies. They hurt liek hell so I don't know if it's fear that they are too fast, or just the hatefull annoyances they are.

I fear not getting to experience everything and enjoying the freedom of luxury and wealth,which money means nothing to me I use it as a survival tool and a luxury tool,but I never was born into a silverspoon in my ass.I always have had to be strong.
I have always had to cover my pain with isolation,because my IQ
Is very high andI can not relate to anybody around the sticks because all they know is "meth"and nothing,nothing,and love their stupity and ignorance.I love Poetry,devotion to knowlege,and Trying to experience,or Dabble in everything.I look at knowlege as the real luxury,and power.It takes knowlege to get up the tower of Babble.I fear that I will fail and end up a
"nobody" Which is not bad to be a shadow in one big book,but I am
ambitious with Rebellion.Aquarians always are.With good ol"Uranus
as my ruling nature.The Planet of Chaotic,Darkness,and Rebellion.
The topsy,turvey planet.IN the world I feel to experience alittle bit of everything is what we are here for.It's easy to Destory,but to Create is God-like.We are all made in the Image of the divine,not just this Religion or that religion.I fear failure because of not enough support for my craft,because I have no friends except Ingrates and ungrateful sons-of-Bithches.
I do not envy anybody for their talents or accomplishments.I have the Cyber family on this screen and yes I look at you all as my family.No matter your Situation,or what side of the track you come from.The question is Do you Accept me? I know these Hicks around me Do not.I am not dissing country people,because I am country-fried.I just dont understand their attiude around here because of my intellegence and study of the Stars,and Philosophy and Craving knowlege to the core, also wanting somebody to share my life with,but I realize that It must not be in my cards to have a lover,a friend ,and a Intelligent opposite sex,Who will share my Lovely,lonely,Inner turmoil.I fear to die Alone.I guess though I will have to face it and conquer,hopefully.

My biggest daily fear is my in-laws. My born again father in law likes to drop around unannounced. Theres only so much debate and heated argument before you realise that someone really is delusional and ignorant. Actually going to their house for dinner, on their turf, where it is expected that I will shut my mouth and not argue anything stupid he might say is the scariest. I cant handle ignorance. The fact they have two small children under 5 that are going to grow up like that is criminal.

And dogs. Man those teeth and gums! I got bitten when I was about 10 and have never forgotten it, and when I see a dog on the street, I am sure he knows this...

In-Laws can be frightening all right. Mine sure can be.

When I was young I was bitten by a dog in the eye. Thankfully no scar is left but I must say my love for animals overcame my fear of pain from them. I just respect them and hope they will respect me the same. And I know that if they do something that is uncanny, that it is in there nature to do what THEY think is right to do. If they feel danger or mal-intention they lash out. As humans do but sometimes less-intelligently. The question is, which one does it less-intelligently..

I amust also admit I have a small fear of heights. I'm okay with them, as longas I am secure. But if I'm top of the tallest building in Montreal and the only thing stopping me is this rickety old fence type thing well... There is the small (HUGE) chance of falling down going through my head. At least the fall could be exciting, I'll die happy. \:\) Heh heh..

I'm still scared of centipedes. Spiders used to scare me until I started researching them and now I can pick them up and hold them. I have a superstition that it's bad luck to murder a spider.

It may be absurd but there it is.

I'm also scared of this person I love a lot, but there's no real reason for it, other than, I think he knows the truth about me and I can't hide from him. Perhaps people who can really see who I am scare me. I mean I can try to explain who I am all I want but words can't take you as far as explaining your true self, that has to be seen. So he's the only one I notice really knows me extremely well. And he's the only person I'm afraid of.

So perhaps exposure, I guess....I like who I am I just think I'm a bit vain and this is underscored in extreme ways.

I used to be afraid of being seen naked so I worked through that...it's all related.

I was once plagued by unadulterated mortal terror of jellyfish and other icky deep sea life-forms. I'm glad I didn't read Lovecraft then, I can tell you that.
It just wore off by itself as I grew up. No affirming story of overcoming fears, just... diminuition.
Heights still get me. After all these years of martial arts, I am now fairly unafraid of the landing and hurting part,(ahh, it's just pain) but the falling bit always freaks me. Go figure.
What interests me is that fear tends to arrest your actions (example: attempting a dive roll, a jumping flip) on a very, very deep, hard-wired, sort of reptile brain level.
If fear is so very deep down, how DO people, sometimes, force their way through it?
Maybe we have deep- (aversion to open flames) and shallow- (homosexuals, cholesterol, dirty fingernails) brain fears? Any lurking psychologists and brain experts?

Tonight's contestants must address their fear of male homosexual anal-genital intercourse. People. That'd be great television.

My brother was shot to death outside our house 8 years ago. So, when I hear a loud noise of anything kind, I get startled and my heart pounds faster out of fear.

It has become a reflex for me. I get startled by any loud bang. For example, unexpected dog barking, fireworks, trucks, racing motorcycles, and just recently, car crashes.

My family used to look outside at the fireworks on July 4th, but when my brother past away on June 30, and July 4th came around, you can just imagine what those fireworks reminded me of.

Independence Day only brings bad memories now.

Another weird fear of mine: I'm afraid of swimming in lakes or ocean type places. I can overcome my fear and swim for a short period, but I'm always afraid of what I cannot see below me. I'm always afraid something will grab me and pull me down or bite me, and I will be useless to defend myself. I guess it's a bit of a fear of being helpless. But I guess a lot of people are afraid of what they cannot see. It's so.. Dangerous and mysterious...

I'm surprised so many satanists are scared of spiders!

I think it's human instinct, courtesy of natural selection, to get jumpy around little fuzzies that move with quick jerky or creepy motions. I think it's because a lot of that shit could kill us say, 20,000 years ago. So people with a natural fear of creepy crawlies didn't get stung by the scorpion. Like how we evolved an innate distaste for the smell of poo or rotten food.

I'm not scared of spiders but I'll get really startled if one jumps on me or if I see a mouse scurry from one hiding place to another.

I used to be scared of spiders, but now i am not really, they can still give me a little shock though.

Anyway. I live in DK, there are no dangerous spiders here at all, so i dont have to fear them.

BUT

If i was in a country with spiders that pierced the skin then it is another thing. Those spiders are horrible (to us humans anyway).

Those things are freakin hell!

(sorry, i have calmed down now, lol)

I still love them but damn, even non deadly spider bites can be sick. (dont go looking for it on youtube, you will vomit)

My point is, fear of spiders is a healthy instinct.

Hey, i DO believe this is my first post here.

EDIT:

About fears.

I was thinking yesterday how klaustrofobia (sorry for misspelling), i mean FEAR OF SMALL PLACES could both save us and be our doom in the natural world. It could save us from entering dangerous places that might cave in on us, but it could also cause our doom when we get eaten because we are afraid to crawl into a hole.

hmmm.. i guess that fear is never the best solution. Rationality may serve higher in dangerous situations.

one can not deny the instant effectiveness of our fear instincts, but (i think that) it is perhaps best to balance these things.

Hmm, that's an interesting idea. Reminds me of how the instinct to scratch an itch might be counterproductive.

I've never been in this situation before, but if I were a clausterphobic running from a sabertooth cat, I think I would dive into the hole anyway. I believe we have a well develped fear hierarchy.

oh yeah, you are right about that (i think). We DO have a rather developed fear hierarchy. Things we normally would fear can quickly seem less important in the face of great danger.

For me fear has always equivocated to non action. I'm most fearful of when I am needed to step up or act I maybe indiffernt or hesitate. That is my biggest fear and one I don't like to test. I tend to think things through too much at the risk of taking too long to act.

Good point. There is a distinct difference between the instant shock reaction, like taking up our arms when we are suddenly startled (like BOO!), and the longtime, inner fear.

The first MIGHT save, the second wont.

My greatest childhood fear is so embarrassing, especially since it's so unfounded: werewolves. When I was six my father let me stay up and watch some werewolf show on USA channel and I was so scared that I started hallucinating at night. There was a stairwell right outside of my bedroom and I would see a werewolf poke its head around the corner and snarl at me. To this day, after having jumped out of airplanes, rappelled from helicopters and even going into combat, that is still the only fear I have. Sometimes when I'm walking outside in the dark toward my front door I feel the need to look behind me and run. It's so idiotic, but it really does take over your ability to think rationally. In fact, I think that the thought of being pursued by something is scarier than actually being attacked and having to face the pursuer. Stupid, but that's the way it is.

Also, hello to coelentrate. Odd seeing you in here the first time I post here.

I have an innate fear of open water. To this day I still get butterflies in my stomach when I am swimming in say a lake or the ocean, where I can't see the bottom. Could be from watching one too many Jaws type movies.
Barrytheblade, the thought of being pursued really is scarier than actually facing a potential attacker. I think it comes from a feeling of helplessness. Walking in the dark, and thinking something is following you, not knowing when it is going to jump out and attack. At least when you face a pursuer that you know is attacking, then it is something you percieve, that you can see.
The biggest fear is fear of the unknown; horror movies are alwas scary until the point where you see the creature.

I'm fine with spiders... but DOGS, those are scary.

Big, evil, child-eating monstrous dogs with razor-sharp fangs dripping with blood and saliva, tensing their powerful legs ready to pin me down on the ground and rip my chest open.

I'm usually fine with darkness, and being by myself.... but if I'm in a big house all alone at night with no lights on, I tend to get the heebie-jeebies, like there's a shoggoth lurking around or something.

Giving in to Gravity and the Unknown...loss of control. My biggest fears are the Abyss and the Dweller at The Threshold. To be annihilated in a void of darkness without anything around may seem comforting but it's fucking scary as hell...maybe that's why I have a hard time can swimming in deep ocean. Outer space would probably kill me too.

Also heights...I get all tingly in my hands and feet when I get close to a huge drop...but I just can't stop looking over edge. Pretty stupid indeed. Maybe I should do a sky dive to over come that one.

One more...

Ummm...probably clowns or mime (mimes?)...they creep me out something fierce. They're like living toys that are 20x their normal size. Put one on stilts and I'd run screaming.

Same here. I am incredibly uncomfortable around groups. My stomach gets in knots and my hands shake a bit, only just the opposit I can't take my eyes off people. I don't trust them. I'll attribute that to my time in the middle east. Then there are the more common ones like putting your hand in something you can't see into and so on.

I know this is dumb... REAL dumb. But I have a an irrational fear of a zombie infestation.
Everywhere I've ever lived I've always had an escape plan for when the zombos burst through the door. I even have one at work.
An example of my zombo dreams... I woke up in bed and there was a new door in my wall. I got up and opened it and there was a dock on a sunny day with a ferry like the caledonia one or some shit and as it got closer I could see figures stumbling about on the boat. Then before I knew what was happening they were pouring off the boat. Proper nasty rotten zombos. and (AOH shudders) they were runners the worst kind.
I mean lets face it, if you're talking dawn of the dead (as in the original) gthen they're pretty useless less you're unlucky and get your ass surrounded and they all pile in on you. If you get assailed by one or two you got a pretty good chance. I mean they fumble you for a bit before they get it up to bite you.
But if you got return of the living dead zombos, or day zombos then you're screwed. I often thought bout what you'd do with a kid or an old person. I dream bout this shit now.
I dunno why but somehow it just doesn't feel ridiculous.
I wake up and have to bung the light on, if it's windy outside and gthe bins blowing about I get myself all worked up. I have two sorts of dreams the sort where I'm on the offensive just slicing em up with shit, and the sort where I'm trying to convince people to take me seriously going through the reinforcing the house shit, then some dungbell always lets em in then it's just survive zombie fighting, I remember dreaming getting the knife stuck in ones head and then getting ate, I often get ate, its like 6 times out of ten I'll get chomped.
before I go back to sleep I scan the room for whats nearest to hand if I had to cave in some zombos
sad I know but you never know.

You aren't the only one. Me and my friends have a plan for a zombie attack. Everyone has certain supplies they have to get before going to our meeting place. It may be an irrational fear, but I would rather have the plan anf not need it than need it and not have it.

That's funny because I have always had that on my mind too. Not in any serious, rational way but more of an indulgence.

I have several katana blades and a copy of the 'zombie survival guide' handy.

For me though it's not a fear but something I would really like to see happen ;\)

The best way to intimidate people and show you are confident is eye contact. If someone can't hold a conversation with me and look me in the eye they are wasting my time and I consider them weak. I suppose that's my version of a man's strong handshake.

--

On a side note for the thread subject; some have already been mentioned:

"I fear slavery and inherent government ruling, overthrown republics, and casual chronology or periodicity." - Kon

Heights & Drowning - ta2zz

A few of my own are: Drunk drivers, Bees (of any sort, I'm highly allergic.) , Germs (Not on a totally scared level, but afraid of the outcome if kept unclean.) , Small spaces and Very crowded places.

As far as the thrill of a fear, I'm very into the paranormal. I indulge myself accordingly to give me that fix, per se.

I will add that I hate, hate zombies with a passion. I never had problems with nightmares about zombies until 28 weeks later. I refuse to watch that movie anymore.

You might want to check out "I Am Legend" then. That has some fast-running infected humans/zombies. Will Smith plays the lead role as the last human on earth, accompanied by his dog Sam, as he fights to stay alive amongst the infected photophobic humans that roam the city at night looking for prey. Gave me nightmares for days after seeing it in the theater.

I empathize with you 100% about the creatures that chase after you in your nightmares. You can never run fast enough, or run long enough, to escape them. If they don't catch you right away, they still manage to catch up to you at some point! I don't even like playng tag, even when I was a kid, because it gets my adrenaline up like I just woke up from a nightmare. It's not a fun game for me.

I've seen that movie. It's very good, but needless to say I, too, had nightmares after it. Not nearly as bad as 28 weeks later. I think it wasn't as graphic as I Am Legend.

I remember being in my grandparents house, in the bathroom upstairs watching the streets run with zombies. I kept as quiet as I could, but one spotted me, I saw it coming up the stairs and I was frozen. I woke up just as it lunged at me. That feeling was HORRIBLE. Inhuman. It felt like I was assassinated during an Outer Body Experience in the astral. I really like horror movies, but zombies are just terrible.

I do, however, love the zombie movie Fido.

I have a greater fear of nuclear or biochemical holocaust than zombies. And tornadoes. It's certainly more likely to happen than hordes of the undead coming out at night and trying to eat my brains,

You should read threads on forums like AR15, those guys are alllll about frickin zombies. Kinda sad.

A bio-chemical attack could very well produce the zombies you don't fear. Chemical warfare can cause a multitude of outcomes. I have heard rumors of their being AIDS bombs. Whats to fear in a nuclear attack? You're dead before you know what happened.

My list of top 3 horrifying ways to die:

1. Being eaten alive
2. Being burnt
3. Drowning

A bio-chemical attack would not produce zombies, it would kill people. There is no such thing as an AIDS bomb. Stay clear of the wilderness and ocean and you more than likely won't be eaten alive. Don't play with matches, and always wear your water-wings when swimming. Bigfoot is a myth, and there are no monsters under your bed. Now close your eyes and sleep well, little Butterz.

My biggest fear is to grow into one of those old ladies that spends her last ten or twelve years raving and shitting herself in a nursing home. Not cool at'all.

I'm also afraid of running out of bourbon, if for no other reason than I could use it to set zombies on fire.

If your lucky you will be close enough to be burnt to cinder in seconds... If not then there are some pretty grueling months of sickness death and rebuilding or migrating...

In case you did not know our government has done quite a bit of research on radioactive poisoning... You may want to do a bit or your own research before posting such speculation even as possible fact...

How do you know exactly what weapons exist? Because every goverment and military official publicly announce "secret projects". No way the government would lie or hide something, right? Now let me guess... Your gonna say im wrong the government doesn't have secret weapons, or hidden labs, right?

Everyone here knows that the government has underground labs and bunkers, which serve both to house and experiment on biochemicals. These could be spread by water, air, or in viral form like Ebola. To think that our gov't got rid of every nasty thing out there for the sake of the public good is a ridiculous notion. We have tons of little vials sitting in the freezers, just waiting to be unleashed against our enemies. The more credible plot could be taken from Stephen King's "The Stand", in which 96% of the population is wiped out by an escaped contagion known as "The Superflu". The other 4% is immune. Same with nukes, sitting around in a lead-walled underground building, primed and ready to be loaded onto Harriers and long-range missile launchers.

The question here is, how do you think, in all reality, that a mere virus would have the ability to animate decomposing flesh? Because that's what zombies are, the living dead, and cells start dying the second the heart stops beating. The only medium that has a hope of doing that is electricity. Please enlighten us, Butterz.

You need to get out more often if you think a scenario like Resident Evil is probable. I guess you're scared of flocks of crows too?

There's not too much that I "fear," that's tangible and waiting to befall me at every turn in life. I'm not afraid of death, having been close a couple of times, and my father was a mortician, so I've always viewed it as "just another damned thing you have to do." As my life progressed, I insured myself against the common bugaboos... I'm usually armed to one degree or another, I stay relatively healthy and abstain from drugs and excesses of alcohol, and I'm pretty well set in my retirement so that I shouldn't worry about becoming a basket lady...that would take a whole new wardrobe.

But damn... what gives me chills in the night is losing my mental acuity or developing some condition that would leave me helpless and at the will of others for feeding, hygiene, communication, etc. That, to me is terrifying; to be "locked in" with a viable and active mind, yet unable to force it to move my body or communicate my thoughts or needs to another. If it ever does happen, I live in hope that someone will have the compassion to take me out.

That is my biggest fear, as well as my family putting fucking crosses in my death box before being turned to ash.

Then also rough sex gone bad....

And you say that like it's a "bad thing." Rough sex NOT going bad... now there's a problem.

The first thing that came to mind after I read all of the above texts was "Why do people even fear?"
I can honestly say I fear nothing. Why I fear nothing, I truely do not know. Nothing has ever bothered me enough to be terrified of it. I can understand why someone would fear certain things such as driving, drowning, spiders, etc. because something freaky possibly happened to them involving said subjects. But why fear it? Why not take it as a learning experience instead? Say you got bit by a spider when you put your foot into your shoe...next time, check your shoes, you won't be bitten, no fear. I also believe that any fear can be cured..face your fears.

I'd appreciate it if someone would share specifically why they fear something..What instills such terror in you that you avoid something at all costs and would rather die than face it? I'd love to get a better insight on this subject.

Fear is an involuntary response to potential danger. If you are snug in your room, well fear isn't necessarily a factor. However, if you are in unfamiliar territory and you sense someone creeping up behind you, it is natural to be on the defensive. Any soldier who has been in a firefight will tell you that they were scared.
It's not necessarily cowardly, mind you. It is just an instinct that alerts you to danger.

I agree that fear is something we all know. There is nothing wrong with it, as long as you are able to overcome it. I've been a mountaineer for years and pretty well know that in some situations, fear is a factor. You have to get through it at times and it can be harder to overcome than the difficulty of the rockpart you're on.
In some situations it's even beneficial, your body becomes boosted and your brain works at a rather primitive level.

Fear isn't rational and being rational doesn't limit being subject to fear although I think there is a difference to be made between what people fear -like getting alzheimer and such- and instinctual fear.

Naa, rough sex, is just rough sex.

Rough sex gone bad is when someone ends up dead, by accident.

You've gotta be fucking kidding me.

Don't be stupid, okay? Everyone fears something and to say that you fear nothing is just retarded. You're not a badass and no one thinks you are cool for saying that.

If you fear nothing, join the fuckin' military. I'm sure you'll make a great target for whatever current "them" we're fighting. Fear is not only a healthy response to a dangerous situation but also a totally natural response. I guess you're too satanic for all that though, huh?

Oh, I see you are only 17. That explains it.

I read somewhere or saw in a video that the average age of a US army soldier in Vietnam was 19 years old. When you are older, I suppose, you see more mortality. If you are having a good time, you would do whatever you have to in order to put off the inevitable demise until the last possible moment. I'm such a....a...a person who puts things off to the last minute type of person....see what I mean???? My vocabulary is also losing a few megabytes...time to take a nap....zzzzzzzzz

Fear is psychological, some people can or can't explain why they fear something.

So you're saying that you fear nothing at all, that you are an individual with no worries when it comes to doing something dangerous for example?
Find it hard to believe that you are a fearless individual. Every man, women, or child fears something weather or not they don't admit it because of their own ego is a different question.

Me I fear incompotence. Simply because of the fact that if I fuck up someone that I serve with dies because of me. This bugs me because if I fuck up and someone dies there was no justifiable reason for me killing them except my being inept at something. Another one of my fears would have to be hieghts. I don't know why but i am afraid of hieghts, now this is very easy to force myself to go into high places but there is still that lingering what if thought in the back of my head.
