jAkWe are all afraid of something. A man without fear is an idiot. What are the three things you are most afraid of?
I'd say a man without fear is either a fool or a wise man, and it depends on his actions whether he's one or the other or both. Fear is caused by the unknown, the unknown out there and the unknown in us. If a man denies his fear, he either ignores the unknown or perhaps knows it and accepts it for what it is. I'm fearful for my family's business, its future, and other family members.

i fear the (swedish) nuclear power plant that is located 30km form my bed, and then i have a thing for spiders.... i really hate the little critters.
Spiders... and large, radioactive explosions...
(3) Snakes/Spiders....I just dont like crawlie things...
(2) Failure. I am afraid of failure because it means you have wasted all the work and effort you have put into something.
(1) The Unknown. (Deep Ocean, new areas in darkness)...I dont fear unknown things such as learning or whatever, but like areas at night that I have not checked out so I dont know whats there. Its not so much a fear, but caution of the area.
I don't spend enough time here

jAkMy third thing I am afraid of would be standing in front of a group of people and giving a speech. I dread it. I can't stand doing it. I always get sick, and I always have stomach troubles before I go up. [/QUOTE] Yah, that has to do with like, if you have tried talking to many people before, I got the same scaryness, standing infront of a crowd then I always think now I am going to do something stupid and make them laugh OF me.
[QUOTE=jAk] The thing I am most afraid of is the ocean. Not the shallow ocean, but the deep ocean. I will never go scuba diving in my life, nor will I put myself in a position where I can get left out at sea. The reason I am so scared of the ocean is because of the unknown. If anyone has seen the movie Open Water, that is a good movie to tell how I feel about the ocean. The two people get stranded in the middle of the ocean, and the husband gets eaten alive by sharks. The women, instead of getting eaten alive, forces herself to drown. It was a freaky movie at the end though when they both died. I never realized until I saw that movie that I was afraid of the ocean.
I've always been afraid of the water, no matter what dept, I havent seen the movie you refer to but heck, I dont know whats down there. Have you ever tried like standing in a boat looking out over the water and then suddently you are in the water because someone pushed u. that happened to me, boy did I get scared once I was in the water, it felt like something held my leg since I couldnt move it, the other could move though. I had the same feeling when I fell from a "ring" tied after a boat at some speed, that was freaking scary when the boat sped away without noticing for another minute. The lake I was in has prooven to be scary because it has currents where we are that can pull a grown man WITH a lifejacket down to 70 meters dept. I am never going over there exept in a boat for the rest of my life.
I got another thing I am afraid of, being alone when I dont got any modern equipment like a mobile phone or some kind of transportation device like a scooter with me, makes me feel helpless and I feel there is someone evil watching me. I wont go deeper into this problem as I might seem crazy(which I am but dont want to show yet).
NiteStryker (2) Failure. I am afraid of failure because it means you have wasted all the work and effort you have put into something.
Waste and failure are inherent in all things, whether it be the act of living (wasting most energy as heat) to doing things (practicing, trying, and unexpectedly failing). I think what matters is that you do eventually succeed, and you feel it's justified. Learning is never a waste, because you remember.
Medomalacuphobia - Fear of Losing an Erection.
Oh heck the minds a strange. Place.
I dont like small spaces either. I can handle them I just dont like them.

'Dreadnought[DK']i fear the (swedish) nuclear power plant that is located 30km form my bed
I'm afraid of getting an serious disease, I know that everyone is scared of that but I think I'm more scared of it than most people (atleast it feels like it).
First off, I'm not really afraid of spiders, except the big jumping ones. I hate flying insects, but I only fear the ones that can sting you, even though I know I'll get over it. I'm not afraid of snakes at all...I don't think they look evil, they're just animals. I'm unusually comfortable with having nothing at all. Maybe this goes back to my being very intelligent and resourceful (*pats self on the back*).
