    Giving blood. I guess it drains from the head. I get light headed and sometimes go out. Even before they start.

    Sorry about. But on the plus side, the thought does make Zombies seem sort of cute and cuddly, does it not?

    I'm kind of claustrophobic, but I don't mind small spaces, I'm just scared of going into a long small space, like a tunnel, or "fat man's squeeze," at Giant city state park, and not being able to get out. I think it's deeply seeded from birth.

    It's also been a persistent fear that I'm going to be peeing out in nature and a badger is going to come and rip my junk off. And for some reason whenever I'm in natural bodies of water I worry about kicking fish when swimming, even if they're harmless.

    Crowds.
    I get really freaked out in a crowd.

    I don't like tall bridges or being in tall building worth a damn either.

    Two things:

    Bugs - I hate bugs of all kinds.

    Swimming in deep water - mainly of being eaten by something that lives in deep water. Sharks, pirannah, Creature from the Black Lagoon. Sometimes I even get a little freaked out in a deep pool.

    I had a little brother that wet the bed and slept in the top bunk. I can handle the sheets...the run-off, not so much.

    My wife has a fear of bridges where the road is made of metal grate (actually she's afraid of walking on metal grates over storm sewers and the like too). Sometimes I don't know it's coming and have her drive and am talking to her and look over only to find her all clenched up (and occasionally with her eyes closed) and am like, "oh ****". So I guess I'm afraid of my wife driving with her eyes closed, but that seems rational to me personally.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"
