What are you not afraid of?
I'm not afraid of apples.

I am also not afraid of the color teal (though, perhaps I should be).

I will never be afraid of the word "weiner"

Are you not afraid of something?

1. Pretty much everything, except for Republicans and spiders.

2. Spiders
Never did understand why people wig out over spiders.

3. I'm not afraid of spiders either
But I don't like snakes. I'm glad we don't have any here.

4. I dislike spiders more than snakes. And I agree with Peter Jackson,
it's the way they move that freaks people out. They're unpredictable, and can jump around and move very quickly. I lost my fear of snakes after I accidently ran one of with a lawn mower. It was a big ass snake too. . .

5. Everything that actually crosses my path. (so far)
I adhere to the philosophy that EVERYONE has an irrational fear,
but I just haven't FOUND mine yet.

I used to think I had a fear of HEIGHTS, but the years I spent
doing power-line construction told me different.

And then I though that I feared PUBLIC EMBARRASSMENT,
but here I am at DU at 7000+ and still posting my nonsense.

So,I guess I currently live in fear of DISCOVERING whatever
it is that I am TRULY afraid of.

Until then, I stop bullets, Matrix Style.

There really ISN'T any "spoon", you know.

6. I don't know. I have not found anything
yet.
Maybe there is something out there which may not give me fright.

Oh wait.

Not afraid of?

Never mind.

13. Thanks. Hopefully the surgery days are over...
...but at least, it left me with no fear of needles.
