If you have something that you want to admit, admit it here. I have a couple things I want to admit.

1) I have a bad fear of heights.

2)I have no feeling at all in my left hand but can move my fingers.

1) I also have quite a big fear of height

Can't think of anything else right now.

Maelstrom 04-09-05 12:29 PM

1 - I fear heights
2 - I am missing 2 fingers on my left hand and only have one knuckle in the pnky and index finger.
3 - dumb people really annoy me

1) I try to race everyone on a MTB/roadie on my way to school everyday.

2) I'm scared to do some things on my bike that I'm sure I can.

3) I spend way too much time behind my laptop. Damned rain!

For those who say they fear heights do you actually fear heights or fear falling? I think there's a difference.

im scared as balls of falling, cause i broke both my arms within 8 months of each other, ill also admit that my helmet makes me look queer...haha

igno-mtb 04-09-05 01:32 PM

hmmm im afraid of snakes... i think (altough i know is not true) that i can handle a battle with wolfs, coyotes, even bears jeje but not with snakes....

Maelstrom 04-09-05 01:35 PM

Both for me. I can't step near an edge without freezing and getting dizzy...

Fear of falling/ crashing is odd, I can ride full tilt and crash and not worry about it, stick me on a drop and for some reason THAT crashing worries me

i fear the yeti. and my theory is that he just IS blurry. that is even worse. there is a big, blurry thing on the loose, and he needs a haircut.

DK Drop 04-09-05 02:11 PM

Not trying to sound tuff, or like a big man, but honestly I can't say there is much I am afraid of, I guess loosing loved ones would be my biggest fear, other than that I guess I'll try just about anything I think, not sure if that makes me ballsy, or just stupid, maybe a lethal combination of both :) I do no my limits though, and live within them, I know I'm not going to be hucking a back flip on my Dirt Bike or doing sick 40' gaps on my Mt. Bike, so I guess that can vouch for a liitle sence in my noggen. Just watched episode 8 of Drop nwhen Dude shatters his heals, and man that's a reality check :(

Giant_CFR3 04-09-05 04:35 PM

Im afraid of making stupid mistakes, thats where people get hurt.

I am open to new things. I did dirt jumps for the first time today. Yea, i crashed but I learned from it. I had alot of fun.

forum*rider 04-09-05 04:41 PM

I'm scared of heights/falling.

Large spiders(like dinner-plate size tarantulas...)

I'm scared of asking out girls.(on dates and such. I can talk to people I like, just not ask them out. how ******** is that?)

hell, I'm scared of alot of things. It would take too long to type them all out here.

:cry:

J-McKech 04-09-05 05:06 PM

1) Afraid to ask girls out on dates, just like forum rider
2) Fear of heights/fear of falling
3) Crowds, I hate large groups of people, so no on the club/bar scene
4) Failure, it's what drives me through school...I don't want to end up homeless.

I'm not really blonde.
My hair turned completely white when I was 22.
It's never changed.

mtnbiker66 04-09-05 05:13 PM

I'm not afraid of heights at all,it's not uncommon for me to be 60ft off the ground on the peak of a house. I don't like Horses, big powerful animals.My wife just got a new horse and I won't have anything to do with it.

Was it because you got into an accident and couldn't come to school? :D

Im not afraid of falling. I love the adrenalin rush when that happens like on a roller coaster or such. what I AM afraid of is that sudden stop at the end of a fall. I am deathly to the point of getting dizzy afraid of rising, like on a coaster,or when I have to go up the ladder to clean my gutters(3 story house). once I get up there Im fine. also Im afraid to lose my temper. Im like a person standing beside myself saying calm the heck down when I lose it. I get angry but fear not being angry responsibly and going nuts. bugs, spiders,snakes wildlife etc. are cool unless they startle me then its the fear of my temper all over again because I want to kill them. I was afraid of water as a kid due to almost drowning but my older brother cured that by beating the crap out of me in the water and doing the hold me under till I almost drown again thing. hes over 50 now and I can kick his arse! he wont go near the water now though so I dont get to. as you can tell by my posts I am not afraid to say dumb things or ask dumb questions. having kids helps a person get over a lot of fears

jeff williams 04-09-05 06:40 PM

I don't have the capital to buy a $$$$ FS bike.

I'm afraid of breaking my jaw or teeth when I wipe out.

I don't mind snakes, am afraid of black widow spiders (some live in the garage.)

I'm not as handsome or intelligent as I seem on the internet.
