    What's up fellas. I'm calling out every man on this site simply because I can. LOL. What are some of the things that scare you or things that you have a healthy fear of? Keep in mind that EVERYONE has something to fear or is a little scared of so if anyone says they don't then I'll openly say they have a fear of admittance. LOL.

    I'll go first. Spiders scare me. The big fat kind like tarantulas or that one spider in your shed that has gotten way too big from eating whatever it caught in its web. They creep me out especially when I'm watching tv and the camera does a up close face shot of them.

    What are some of yours?

    Fire, I'm a freak about fire prevention. I also live in Toledo, Ohio, the arson capital of the world. On a good week only one house burns down here.

    I have a healthy respect for wasps. I got stung two or three times when I was 5 years old. You don't forget it..... they are the enemy when it comes to my house & home. No nests. The ground wasps were bombed by firecrackers when I was a teenager....

    I am terrified of stepping in dog poop. I'm always scanning the sidewalk ahead of me for mines. I have no problem picking up after dogs when I walk them, I just have to know where the doody is at all times to feel at ease.

    Since I was a kid, I've had an unnatural fear of falling onto a stick or something and having it poke my eye(s) out. I'm sure my mom said, "You'll put your eye out" one too many times!

    Even at the store, those metal things that stick out from shelves that they hang things from--I have a terrible feeling that one day I'm going to trip and have one of those things go right into my eyeball.

    I have a deathly fear of rats or anything that resembles a rat (mice, guinea pigs, hamsters, or other rodent-type creatures). It's all the fault of seeing the movie "Willard" when I was a kid. I also get terrified when I have an upset stomach and I think I'm going to vomit...I will do anything and everything possible to keep from doing that cuz it scares me to death....I'm just sure I'm gonna choke to death or throw up a kidney or something.

    I also hate heights, thus I am petrified of rollercoasters and, believe it or not, ferris wheels, and I will never EVER jump out of a plane wearing a parachute.

    Oh yeah, don't ask me to hold your pet snake either...not gonna happen.

    God I'm pathetic! LOL

    Elevators. I hate them like you don't understand. Yet, I have to be on the highest floor possible. I'm not afraid of heights.

    My last apartment was on the 24th floor in what turned out to be a less-than-desirable building, and everytime I stepped in one of the elevators I was convinced I was going to die.

    Well I don't think RBY71 would like me because when I go to the beach I cover horse and dog shit with sand and wait for people to walk in it. I pee my pants every time I see the persons face. "What did I just step in?" Then I go swimming in the ocean to wash the pee out of my pants...

    I am scared of becoming an American 'clone sheep'. You know the people who go to work for 9 to 5 for 5 days a week, and they get 2 weeks off a year for vacation and sick leave. That sounds like hell to me.

    Gigman, I don't care how hot you are, that's just mean. May a big bird crap on your face next time you're at the beach :-)

    I'm really afraid of snakes and coyotes. I had a coyote chase us when my chows and I were running on the golf course one night. The coyote got the tail of one of my dogs and just held on for a bit - until I got him to let go. He would have tackled my dog and I have to tell you - my blood went cold I was so scared. Now I carry a golf club when we go for night runs. So for me - snakes and coyotes. Eeeeuuuu.

    Definitely snakes for me! It has been like that since my parents took me into the snake house at the zoo when I was 3. Then it got worse when I was bitten by one...ha...all while trying to get over my fear of snakes.

    Ha...I will honestly not live in a city where I know snakes (especially poisonous ones) may reside.

    I did my undergrad down in Houston and go down there at least once a year. However, I refuse to live down there b/c there are Water Moccasins all throughout the city!...freaks me out!

    WOW. All of you are really cool.

    I dub thee real men of this site.
    Most guys don't talk about their fears or things that scare them. Awesomeness.

    Hndsmkansan...I can realte to your fear of wasps. I'm allergic to wasps, bees, hornets, and fire ants I think. I have a healthy, legitimate and respectful fear of them after my near death experience with them and the fact that they killed one of my brother (who was also allergice to them but none of us new at the time).
