27. As a child I was terrified of quicksand. Just thinking about it gave me nightmares.
I was 7 or 8 when I saw one of those old western tv shows where the "good" guy sat astride his horse and watched the "bad" guy beg for mercy as he slowly sank to his death. I cried all night and didn't get over my phobia until I was 10 or 11. I feared my dad would walk into the woods and sink although in the area of NC that I lived in there was no quicksand for miles and miles around. Finally one night I decided that if I died I'd go to heaven (now I'm not so sure since I'm a bad girl). And no more fears after that.
