bathtub drains

see, when i was a kid, someone told me that if you were in the bathroom when the tub finished draining, you would die. so you had to do whatever you could to be out before it finished. and i didn't believe it, of course, except for the part of me that always did, and would rush to get dry and dressed as quickly as i could. even now i get nervous if i'm in that situation.

from such building blocks, the magic of childhood is made.

Statues have been kinda creepy ever since that Doctor Who Episode. Probably because I watched it at 3 AM when I couldn't get to sleep and I had a statue in my house downstairs. Mirrors can be kinda creepy too.

I say this to you in the softest breath, 'Weeping Angels.'

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

Easily the creepiest episode along with The Empty Child. It doesn't help that there are statues all over my hometown, including an entire huge store that only sells stone statues. No clue how they've stayed open so long. It's probably a front for some drug operation.

Snakes are reflexive and rather dumb and the poisonous ones are to be respected, but there is nothing to really be afraid of; just be careful and know about the poisonous ones where you live.

Yea they make me nervous and I give them wide berth, but there are scarier things -- a wasp sting is merely unpleasant for most people.

I was joking about the snakes and rape. I've had way to many to count as temporary pets.  All have been caught in the wild and that's where they go back to when i release them. As for the venomous ones, yes they are to be respected and treated with care. For the most part, All snakes should be treated with care. As well as any other animal. AS for something that really scares me, I have nothing. Fear is a sickness. It warps and twists the mind, as well as poisons the heart. Fear is something that can be abolished. And should be. I understand for some it is very ard to overcome irrational fears, hence the name irrational. But with hard work and a great support system anything can be overcome.

Lot's of things scare me.   Being outside in the dark .. sometimes i'm fine,, but other times i'm convinced that  SOMETHING  is gonna get me and panic sets in!!! I always laugh at myself ... after i've run to safety !!!!   I'm pretty sure there's a boogity boogity down by the garden after dark.

I'm a little afraid of horses,  and dogs.   Other drivers scare me and THICK traffic traveling at warp speed !

* Drowning ... Suffocation ...   High winds ...  War ...  Death ..Taxes..     and ya mirrors are a little spooky too.

I think the few times I've been in serious danger I've also been so angry I didn't notice.  It was only later when I could think about it that I experienced fear.  This all happened when I was much younger.

Aquariums.
Mostly the shark tunnel part, and sharks in general.

I'm also terrified of things that crawl weird.

More people die each year from coconuts than from sharks.

You have a better chance of dying on your doorstep than from a shark. Even though most shark bites generally cause you to bleed out.
