    I remember when I was young my parents
    kept a scary looking record cover called THE
    ROLLING SILENCE by Manfred Mann in
    the 1970's among their record collection.
    I would run away from the house or lock
    myself in my room when my parents would
    take the record cover out to show me.
    The cover is scary looking; it's a patina
    green color with a screaming mouth inside
    this giant ear.  My parents called it the
    Mouth in the Ear and would tease me saying
    that the Mouth and the Ear was gonna get me!
      I remember tackling my older sister to the
    ground one time because she was reaching
    for the album in the cabinet. She thought it
    was it funny that I was overeacting to just
    a stupid album cover, but I was in panic
    Years ago I had my parents tear the
    album cover into shreds while I hid in my
    room.  I hope that they did!  Yeah, I know
    it seems crazy and silly, I am pretty much over
    the fear but every now and then it comes
    to my mind in the
    middle of the night BOO lol

      I have a real fear of Roller Coasters and feel if I go on one, something might go wrong with my head. Even as a kid, while all the other kids were happy and smiling on the little roller coasters, I was the only kid crying to my parents "I wanna get off".

      Watching Final Destination hasn't helped either. smile

    when I was a little girl, I used to be afraid to open my oldest brothers closet where the ouiga board was, then my mom moved it down into the basement... so I would get the creeps every time I went into the basement. I covered it and hid it under the stairs.

    The only thing I am fearful of is getting stuck in an elevator and the breaks giving out. I take the stairs most of the time but if I have to I suck it up and take the elevator.

    It's not a fear just being uncomfrotable with driving around big rigs, I hate when they are all around me, blocking me in so I can't get out around them.

      Yeah, I got stuck in a hospital elevator once when I was young, and ever since I've been nervous around them. I'd rather take an escalator or stairs. I can go in an elevator but I won't like it.

    Spiders are creepy, and I hate it when birds fly inside the house. I have no problem with them outside, but if they fly in the kitchen while I'm sitting there having lunch, I am under the table like a shot. Seriously. I don't want to get a bomb dropped on my sandwich.

    Snakes are terrifying too.

    well since you said irrational I have a fear of....HAIR- ok let me explain loose hair, clumped hair in a drain, hair balls on the floor, etc. When I was younger I use to pay my brother to clean my brushes out, and when he wanted to be mean he would chase me around the house with a handfull of hair.......Aaaagh! Lastly, bugs, all except Ladybugs and butterflies..... I know now you all must think I'm a freak!

    For some reason I fear heights like crazy but in a odd way. If I am in an airplane it really does not bother me at all. But if I am walking up open stairs you know those ones that are metal and you can see though I get up about 4 flights and I freeze up in most cases HAHAHA there my deep dark secret tongue

    There was a hell of a funny scene years ago. Our friend's neighbour had a mole snake in their yard. So my brother went round there with a shovel, and I was given a bottle. This friend of ours, who was completely bonkers and drunk, said, "Get the snake's venom in the bottle." Mole snakes aren't venomous as far as I know.

    My brother ended up chopping the thing's head off with the shovel and throwing it in the bin, wrapped up in a plastic bag.
