    Oh damn, you're right...I hadn't really given that serious thought. I'm probably in the majority by saying I don't expect to die anytime soon, but I suppose that's a side effect of taking life for granted. Definitely food for thought.

    Stuff like this does remind me of this video, though. Enjoy.
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    While we're on that subject, I couldn't imagine a world without dark chocolate. Just the thought of that makes me want to practice my knot-tying...

    I have a fear of failure, which can be inside the mind as it can affect me sometimes when doing something since I do think that what if I don't do well like an exam or driving the car as you can have mood swings sometimes at times. It is interesting to see that some fears can be from inside and don't exist and we cause it to exist at times, so we need to try and focus on the good and not the bad which can affect us with negative thoughts from time to time. I reckon that I do fear heights which, can cause some to fear it and also war occurring as you see it in most countries around the world and can be scary to see this happen.

    I think my fears are too common. Fear of cockroaches, fear of heights, fear of death, fear of judgement and criticism. I try not to let them control me but fears can't be controlled, I just end up accepting the situation whenever I end up in one.

    It'd be messed up if it happened. I don't worry about that happening but I can see where the fear is!

    Losing my teeth is up there because it happened to my mom so it hits close to occurring.

    Sodomy mainly

    Loneliness. Dunno what will happen when relatives get older and pass on but a friend already has and it's just not the same anymore being aware of our mortality more often. It feels empty to come home and nobody is there so I'm kind of glad I'm still with family

    For the past several years I've developed a fear of darkness. It's not like I'm scared of ghosts or anything like that. I've never believed in such things, and throughout my childhood I always played with friends outside in the darker hours without a care in the world. I think that just a few bad experiences is all it takes (even one) to develop a phobia, like waking up in a dark train in a state of amnesia. My only light source was a yellow light above, blinking intermittently. Come to think of it, maybe this is why I rarely turn the main room lights on at home. I'm perfectly fine having a few lamps moderately light up the room, but like with darkness I feel uncomfortable with total brightness. But I love natural light... weird.

    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    Mantis: I'm not a fan of it being pitch black, but I think it's partially because I'm not used to it. When I was a kid, like a majority, I needed a nightlight. But...Now I'm mostly just used to there being little lights on because of all the LEDs around in my house. My room has a quasi night-light because it has an emergency light plugged in that turns on when there's a power outage, but I also have a really bright clock that hurts my head when I'm trying to rest, so I have to cover it somewhat. Still, I tend to prefer darkness over light. I'm not a fan of sunlight in general, but I'm also sensitive to a lot of different types of light. Mild yellow light is the best for me -.-

    That said, this is a fear thread...So I'll note a fear I forgot about mostly until today. See...I don't go outside much, but I especially like avoiding it in the winter. I've fallen on more black ice than I'd dare count (yes, I know that's nothing special). I became particularly uneasy with it after my 'extreme snow tubing' incident, because that same day (my butt was in pain from going down the lift twice, etc) when I got home, I slipped on a pretty big patch of it trying to go to my door. Let's just say...An already battered bum does not do well with being landed on hard again. So...Whenever I think of ice outside now, I remember the pain from that particular day, even though it's foolish. Luckily, there was none when I went out today!

    Other fears I have...Alcohol, to a degree. I admit to drinking a bit once in awhile (never til drunk), but it's more being around people that are drunk because of discomfort and memories that I'd rather not explain for the moment. I'm also much more paranoid with water intake and not being too close to heaters (which is probably a good thing). Both are also from bad memories- my dad managed to get a 3rd degree burn on his foot at one point from a space heater (he slept too close to it and slow cooked when his foot fell right next to it)...and for the water intake...I've seen how dehydration can result in insanity first hand. But those are good things to be careful of. Being anxiety-stricken over some ice on the street is probably kind of...not.
