People are much scarier than spiders.

Get a new drivers license photo every 5?+ years scares the crap out of me. Where'd the gray hair come from?

I'm afraid of horrible medical conditions, like parasites, bot flies, pilondial cysts, open abscesses, hand de-gloving, amputation, and so on.

My wife dying before me. Sure if she died today no big deal, but as we get older and see health conditions worsen and SOs pushing up easiest it makes me realize how short worthy life can be.

(Sitting in the ER with my 82yo father now, I just want to die like my Mom in my sleep no sickness...no pain)


Oh and I'm scared my honda will someday die and I'll finally have to invest in a new vehicle.

Tiny little yapping dogs. I fear they will anger me enough to kill them.

Wasps. Those things are hideous!! Once on a ride I came upon a wasp on rock in the middle of the path and stopped to see if it would fly away/I could go safely past it. It would sit on the rock, then fly up around in a circle above the rock and land back on the rock. It kept doing this, all the time mad-dogging me hardcore. So I said 'forget this!' and went back the way I came.

I don't know, all I remember hearing is they have them mostly in the third world type places... So I figured Chicago could very well be part of that.

I'm not afraid of heights. I'm afraid of widths.

I'm afraid that all of us may actually be brains in jars, in some sort of weird alien laboratory, and that everything we know may be some sort of dream state.

Tomato worms and ugly green squishy caterpillars. *shudders*

I'll take spiders any day over those.
