    I have arachnophobia. Cant stand the little critters, I scream like a little girl.

    Ive started them on fire and shot them with guns before. 10' is way to close for comfort.

    I think its because when I was little my older brother made me watch the movie arachnophobia.

    Anyone else?

    Mine is similar. I've got glockophobia. Anytime I get near them, I have to shoot them.

    Anything with more than 4 legs needs to die a horrible death.

    My only phobia would be heights.

    Also, another popped up about a year ago. I've flown, literally, hundreds of thousands of miles for business. And about a year ago, it just freaked me out one day. No real reason, no horrible experience, it just freaked me out. And it freaked me out that I was freaked out. (Since I knew there was no reason for it.)

    Talked to my family Physician and was told that it's very normal and that it will likely pass. :dunno:

    ETA:

    Rollercoasters. Anyone else not ride them? I *have* ridden them just to shut people up, but don't enjoy them at all. Maybe it ties in with the turbulence on aircraft thing. Maybe some people just don't handle "drops" well?

    Clowns. They aren't funny, they're creepy. Anyone desiring to be a clown has a serious screw loose.

    I'll have to agree about the spiders, I hate them, rather deal with a snake. The part I hate the worst about spiders is their ability to drop down from above at a moments notice.... freaks me out.

    i have a fear of women not liking me so i make every effort to go overboard with my boyish charm and animal magnatism and charisma.
