As a child I needed the room to be pitch black for me to sleep. If there were shadows I'd think that someone would step out of them, yet complete darkness gave me comfort...
For that reason as an adult I need to room to be super dark in order to sleep...

The dark does not stop me from hiding in your closet.
User avatar #112 to #111 - defeats (12/28/2012) [-]
I'd like to find a dwarf in my closet. Or if you could bring the other 6 too and I'd keep you as pets.

I have the exact same fear that pictures scares the **** out of me. When I played Far Cry 3 and had to kill Man-Eater I nearly **** my pants.

I'm not afraid of public speaking, sharks, heights, humility, or needles...

<---- But somehow these mother truckers make me cringe and run away.

I'm not afraid of any of that, but a spider running past my bare feet will make me jump 15 feet into the air.
Once I start to think and realise that I'm superior I'm not afraid.

What part of the balloon scares you though? Maybe one was popped near you when you were a child, I was never scared of them, but until about 10 years old, if someone threatened to pop one I'd most away as if it was a grenade. After that age, I was that someone.
User avatar #98 to #93 - albiwankenobi (12/28/2012) [-]
I'm really just afraid of them popping unexpectedly. Like... when you're blowing one up and you're just chillin thinkin about the awesome ballo-POP MO FO!!! You end up with a racing heart and a tube of rubber in your mouth (no sexual innuendo intended).

That's just an example, and I have gotten better with the fear, but I still bloody hate it when they pop when you least expect it.

POP POP POP WATCHIN' ALBIWAN DROP
User avatar #100 to #98 - defeats (12/28/2012) [-]
Haha, I got used to the popping, mainly because I've been exposed to much louder, scarier noises.
Though on top of any explosions or gunfire the scariest pop for me was when I was pumping up a bicycle tyre, there was a small slit in the tyre so as I was pumping up the inner tube it was getting caught in that a bit.
The bang that inner tube made was so loud and so unexpected that I now pump bicycle tyres up quite gently once they're nearly full.

The only thing I was afraid of as a child was that some psychopath would run after me trying to kill me, so whenever I walked alone I considered escape routes and found sticks and stones to protect me..

Oh and hights of course.

Personally, I think a fail-safe plan from such a situation would be to strip down to your underwear and start chasing the psychopath instead.

I used to be afraid to go near drains....and I used to think that when I sat down to take a **** this ****** would slap my balls or something. He never did....now my uncle stanley on the other hand.....

Why are there crosses in the pool?
User avatar #80 to #77 - msustlsr (12/28/2012) [-]
to keep that ************ contained and calm

Personally I was always afraid I giant squid would rush up from the deep end of the pool and grab me. But ya this post really hits home.
#75 - haseotakaeda (12/28/2012) [-]
Not really irrational
Sharks are scary mother *******
and there COULD be one in the pool
/shrug
TL;DR? I don't think any fear can be irrational
User avatar #84 to #75 - zhooker (12/28/2012) [-]
A shark could not survive long in chlorinated water
User avatar #140 to #84 - haseotakaeda (12/28/2012) [-]
But the point is you'd be right to be scared of sharks LOL

Am I the only one who wasn't afraid of swimming in a pool? In the sea, maybe... I couldn't tell if it was sharks I was afraid of, or the coast guard.

Holy **** . That is what made me swim faster. And the water at my local YMCA is relatively dark. I also have swimming lessons every Saturday for my lifeguarding. I want to have a lifeguard license, but I am scared of a shark in the pool. FML




Whenever I do front crawl, I peak back to see if there is a fin behind me.
User avatar #70 - biomedic (12/28/2012) [-]
I was horrified of swimming in the sea because of this, although diving is fine because I can see everything. but never a pool. The irrational part is it was in England, we never get sharks here, dogfish rule the sea.

Yeah, the antichrist crosses in the back are scary as ****
#68 - nordicmike (12/28/2012) [-]
