What is your greatest fear?

    I have an undying fear of RATS!!!!

    I've only seen them on television, but, a story here holds...
    ...a mother was cleaning her home and due to the vacuum cleaner she could not hear her baby crying. When she turned off the vacuum, she heard the baby and ran to see. She found a rat in the bed nibbling on the baby's arm. Now I am not only afraid of them, I HATE them

      I have a terrible phobia of rats and mice.  I also hate bats.  I know bats aren't rodents, but they fall into the same category with me.  I have a friend who was bitten by a rat, as a child, and she still has the scar on her eye.  Could you imagine a rat feasting on a baby's eye!  They are evil little bast**ds.

        Uh-oh! Someone's likely going to come along and say, "Hey Davina, I like rats, and I have them as pets, and I let them sleep in my bed!"

        Not me by the way. I kill rats and mice when I see them, or I sic the cat on them. big_smile

    Sharks and Sting rays. Ive yet to encounter a shark in the water, but I have seen them drift by shorelines nearly every year...I cringe because I snorkel a lot, and think one day I will see one up close and personal. Also sting rays because I do see them a lot, and they look evil. I snorkeled the shoreline shell hunting once, and a big sucker, seriously with a width of about 4 feet was right at the waters edge hidden in the sand. My dumb arse was right over him w/o realizing it till I spotted the things evil eyes looking up at me through the sand. My heart sank, and I thought I was going 2 die! It sensed my fear, and sprang up leaving me in a cloud of sand. I thoughtd Id end up like steve erwin.

      I like hurting people! Wait, do you mean physically or emotionally? I usually attack people emotionally- when they deserve it of course.

    I am terrified of Thunderstorms, then again slugs rank right up there as well.

      I like thunderstorms a lot! Years ago I would sit by the window and count the seconds between the flash of lightning and the sound. It's supposed to give you an indication of how far away the strike is or something.

    Well I love Sharks and worked with them in the marine lab. I had a pet mouse named Bojangles. And I fed stingrays at a park in orlando. So... my greatest fear is losing someone I love.

    Thank you Misha for that observation. I missed that one. I guess it must be a hot topic for it to be so popular. :-)

    My one and only fear is that I'll exceed all the great film directors like Scorcese, Raimi, Zemeckis and Spielberg; who I've come to admire for years. The mere thought of it gives me nightmares.

    My fear is dying before being able to accomplish all my goals I've set out in my life:  I want to become the First Lao Novelist.
