What Is It You’re Scared Of? Bet I Have A Name For It.

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

 .

I thought it might be a good idea to do a post on phobias, that is, things that people are scared of. There re the obvious things like spiders and rats and heights and so forth, but I was hoping that there might be enough material to do a post concentrating on the stupid things, the things that you would never imagine in your wildest dreams that somebody would be scared of.

Well it turns out I was right. There was enough material for a post. In fact there was enough material for a whole series of posts!

The rule I quickly discovered is  –  if it exists some poor demented soul will be scared of it. Even the most mundane and innocuous things.

I should also point out that what we are talking about here is not just simply being scared as you would be scared of a lion or a charging herd of elephants. That’s just common sense. What we are talking about here is a totally irrational and heightened fear for which there is no logic or sensible explanation, other than that the sufferer is a bit nuts!

So we’ll start the series today. If you like it then we can do more. It’s actually quite entertaining in two senses, one just to laugh at the stupidity of people, and two, to marvel at some of the names scientists and doctors have dreamt up for the phobias.
