    Apparently that's a really common phobia.

    I hate, loathe and despise daddy long leg spiders...they just give me the heebie-jeebies.
    My son is terrified of bees or wasps of any kind....he will go halfway around the house trying to escape a bee that may be flying even remotely in his eyesight!

    I'm with you on that one. It's just plain creepy. We don't have many open casket funerals in Europe, so that particular tradition seems strange to me. Especially with the make-up and all. Ew.

    britty05 and PWS: Clowns are terrifying! Admittedly, my problem with clowns didn't start until I read Stephen King's It at a much too tender age, but still. There's definitely something creepy about clowns, even when they are not Pennywise the Clown. And yes, it is a very common phobia. Both Johnny Depp and Billy Bob Thornton (two of my favourite actors, by the way) are apparently petrified of clowns.

    I don't like spiders of any description. I had a visitor from Arizona here for a few days and she told me a creepy story. She said that one night a huge, hairy, black spider was crawling across her kitchen and she stepped on it. When she did, she said that what appeared to be about a thousand tiny spiders just started scurrying all over her kitchen! Now that would freak me out so that I probably wouldn't have been able to sleep in that house that night.

    Where I live those huge waterbugs are really common. We don't have them because our house is high off the ground, but my son had a ton of them. My husbands cousin told me that she went into her bedroom the other day and a monster one was crawling on her telephone. She called her husband to kill it and he (a real clown) asked if she thought it was trying to "bug" her phone.

    By the way those things you get, that plug into an electrical socket, really seem to deter bugs in the house. My son has them in every room and now we only occasionally see a bug, usually dead.

    I agree. Waterbugs do freak me out! They are the nastiest, ugliest things I've ever seen. Hate crickets, too. Nasty, nasty, nasty!!! Can't stand the noise that comes with stomping on them!!! This is going to sound stupid...but I always scream when I step on any bug so that I can't hear/feel the nasty crunching noise! And I Don't Want To See The Result!!!!

    I have a spider phobia that is reinforced from time to time when I see one descending from the ceiling as if it's on a mission to get me. However, I have gotten a little sympathetic over the years and if I can get any bug in the house, spiders included, onto something and put it safely outdoors, then I feel better. Except for roaches - those nasty creatures never get a stay of execution.

    City grates on the sidewalk. I have this irrational fear that a) they (and therefore I) might fall in, b) someone is down there looking up my skirt, or c) someone might reach their hand up from underneath.

    I said it was irrational.

The recent attacks in Fort Lauderdale didn't help, of course, even though I'm half a world away. The mere fact that I've been to Fort Lauderdale is enough for me to feel all shivery whenever I read about alligator attacks. I had to pet three ponies before I returned to normal. When it comes to insects, though, I'm the epitome of cool. My man is terrified of spiders, so I've been known to kill a spider or 20 in my time. I don't even flinch while doing so. Same goes for moths. But reptiles I can't even watch wrestling with Steve Irwin without bursting into tears. I think it's the fact that they look like pre-historic creatures that really gets to me. Ew.

    Any other reptile phobes out there? Like I said, I can handle pretty much everything else, but reptiles freak me out big time.
    Geek,
    I live in Florida and believe it or not, we go months at a time without seeing alligators. The problem with them attacking recently is that A). it was mating season and they do get more aggressive then and B) idiots feed them and they lose their fear of humans and then in their pea sized brains equate humans with food and attack.

    There are signs, warnings on tv in and in the papers DO NOT FEED ALLIGATORS, but as 1000 people a day move into this state, we can't educate them fast enough to NOT FEED A DANGEROUS ANIMAL. You'd think it would be common sense, but there you go, we all know that most people lack that gene.

    So don't worry about Ft. Lauderdale or any other city in Florida. Alligators do not roam the streets looking for victims. I've known people that came to Florida for a week on vacation and never saw a one.
