What are you afraid of? I don't mean things like "losing people" or "failure" or "being alone" or "dying" or any of those very reasonable, very human things that most people fear to some degree. I mean the fears that have NO BASIS IN RATIONAL THOUGHT and make you sound like a crazy person if you get into detail about them. For example: I am afraid of large birds. Anything that is bigger than a duck is a monster. I had recurring nightmares about giant birds as a child, and I find the idea that twelve foot kiwi birds use to exist HORRIFYING BEYOND BELIEF. I am GLAD THEY ARE ALL DEAD. Also, GIANT EAGLES. I don't care how cool they were in LotR (or The Rescuers Down Under). Apparently historical New Zealand is my Hell. It probably doesn't help that I was attacked by geese as a child, but I don't think that trauma fully explains my hatred and terror towards huge fuckoff birds. (I actually love dinosaurs, but some of the flying ones evoke the same sensation of horror as more modern birds. For example, this abomination.) What about you guys? What makes YOU break into cold sweats and rave like a madman?
