    None of us knows what hell's like until we get there, and if a 'religion' is true? Then none of us are following its holy texts to the letter so we're all gonna burn down there. I'm a sinner and I like it that way as Madonna says.

    If you make a deal with the Devil to go to heaven when you die, where do you go once your time comes up?

    Nope. I like 'em saggy. But I ain't interested in Madonna, I just like some of her music.

    Besiiiides, Jesus basically said there isn't a Hell in the way most people nowadays think for whatever reason, so don't worry, be happy. Me? I'm gonna go look for Easter eggs tomorrow with my baby cousins at church and spend some time with my fiance afterwards. Nice relaxing holiday.

    To get things back on topic, here's the strangest phobia I could find:

    Stasibasiphobia: Fear of sitting in chairs

    That one's pretty kooky.

    Well I don't believe in an afterlife in the first place so I really don't give a shit. When I die then everything simply ends. No darkness, no silence, no light, no sound, no touch, no emotion, nothing at all. Simply oblivion. Scares the shit out of me but whatever, what happens happens. Though I'll be kinda miffed if there is an afterlife and I don't end up in the section of "Lust".

    [edit]

    Oh, I got another phobia now that I think about it. I can't stand travelling really fast. I can't ride motorcycles, I can't stand riding in a car that goes too fast and a plane or train? Those freak me the fuck out. Like, I feel paralysed when things go too fast and I can't think clearly. It's a reason why I never got my drivers license. Being behind the wheel of half a ton of steel, having to go fast at certain roads? Nope. Big fucking nope to that.

    No idea what that phobia is called but it messes me up.

    So is it the idea of going fast that frightens you or, is it when you feel the wind on your face and you simply cannot ignore the fact that you're travelling so fast?
    Anyway, pinaciphobia was the weirdest fear I found, it's the fear of lists.

    What bothers me is the fact that the higher speed you're going in the worse the collision is going to be if you crash or lose control of your vehicle. More speed = if we crash then it's going to be bad, really bad.

    Now that I think about it, I am somewhat afraid of geese, not an ever present fear but if a goose comes walking towards me I'll probably flee.

    I have always had a severe fear of heights (though falling makes more sense). It doesn't make me panic, scream, or cry, but just extremely nervous. Thing is as someone who loves the outdoors and hiking I've often found myself walking or driving near a steep slope high up and wondered why I don't get used to it and it won't slowly go away. I've even forced myself to get close enough to edges and look over them (while holding something firm and rooted to the ground like a fence) and stared down hoping the fear would be overcome, but it never happens.

    On one of my fungus finding hikes though I did "force" myself to climb a small mountain the last 5% of which was hand and foot climbing which in a way conquered my fear since it's something I still can't believe I did. Also I don't believe I succeeded by removing the fear, but by want to reach where I was going enough to want it more.

    No real phobias in that sense, but I do feel my animal-fear-side come to life in certain circumstances

    A big black body of bottomless water frightens me. Not to the point of panic or terror, but enough to make me uneasy. That said, I'm not often around big bottomless waters, but I felt the nerve of it the few times I was on a ferry. Mind you, I can stand by the reiling, watch the water, and all, I just find the water itself to be very imposing, bordering frightening.
    In dreams, it recurs a lot, as flooding rivers or rising sea-levels (tsunami-style!)

    I have a ton of phobias. Arachnophobia (fear of arachnids like spiders, as well as related animals like scorpions), acrophobia (fear of heights), entomophobia (fear of insects), nyctophobia (fear of the dark), thalassophobia (fear of sea creatures), automatonophobia (fear of animatronics, but also fear of the Automaton DLC), climacophobia (fear of stairs), bathmophobia (fear of steep slopes) and ophidiophobia (fear of snakes.)

    At least I'm not germophobic or botanophobic.
