Wasn't logged in when I took the shot, doesn't seem to appear for logged in users, I was referring more to the content of the ad vs the ...content.

I love chainsaws. This is mine. I learned to work with a chainsaw when i was 15 years old. I'm 18 now and never anything bad happened to me while i was working. They need some love too, you know?

Well joke's aside, I really want to know. It's common sense to fear being hurt by one, but what would a chainsaw "phobia" really be?
User avatar #10 to #9 - persevs ONLINE (12/02/2013) [-]
Phobia names are just the greek word for whatever the fear is off and then the word phobia which means fear. Apparently chainsaw in greek is alysopriono, so the phobia would be alysoprionophobia. For something to qualify as a phobia it has to be irrational, so technically one could have a phobia of chainsaws if the sight of or the far off sound of one is enough to scare you.

tl : dr Alysoprionophobia

I knew most of what you said, I've got an extreme zombie phobia (ie i get terrified to even hear the sound of a movie/game zombie, I can't go out at night since I'm scared there's a secret zombie apocolypse, etc). I was just wondering if there was a legit word for it.
User avatar #12 to #11 - persevs ONLINE (12/02/2013) [-]
I doubt there is any word for it in use, but if it were to be needed then I guess that would be it. And I'm sorry for just laughing about your fears, but I found the idea of someone being afraid of a secret zombie apocalypse hilarious. I hope you don't have to deal with zombie stuff all that often, though.

Nah it's all good, I laugh about it too (after sobbing horribly).
User avatar #19 to #14 - persevs ONLINE (12/02/2013) [-]
Being able to laugh about it sounds good. And at least there are many other phobias to laugh at as well, like arachybutyrophobia the fear of having peanut butter stuck to the roof of your mouth and hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia fear of long words .

Yeah, I know zombies aren't real but that doesn't stop me from being terrified of them.
User avatar #23 to #20 - persevs ONLINE (12/02/2013) [-]
Well, like I said, phobias are irrational and therefore the object which creates fear doesn't have to be real.
