It's a list of phobias, and people give small testament to owning the fear and how it affects them. I have a number of irrational fears myself, most of which aren't even listed here (I guess they're too weird!) and one of which I plan to post about here soon. But reading some of these helped me feel a little more normal. The following fears are listed, and particularly tickled me. I'll include a quote from the site for each fear, for your amusement.
fear of ankles
"they really freak me out! I am always sceared that someone could cut them with a knife in a swimming pool""
fear of buttons (seemingly common, and has a name, koumpounophobia)
"If I touch one by mistake, I would wash my hands for about 30 mins.. "
"I also think buttons smell. Even the word button is disgusting."
"If I find a button just lying around I am liable to vomit"
fear of pine trees
"I am scared that the trees will smother me or I will die."
fear of toilets
" I fear a toilet overflowing and I especially fear toilets with a high-level cistern or wall-hung toilets as it has been called. "
fear of people breathing
"i can't stand the sound of it...it just drives me up the wall. i also can't listen to clocks tick. "
fear of going to the mailbox
"sometimes it takes me a couple of weeks to go to the mailbox."
fear of wind blowing clothes off *chuckle*
"i no this is strange but i have a huge fear of walking down the road and the wind all of a sudden blowing my clothes off, i aslo have a fear of a fish getting out of its tank in the middle of the nite and sucking on me till i got no blood left. "
fear of migets read more here
"I know migits are people but they are scary looking."
"Im also afraid of to go in public places because of the fear of midgets, but not just any midgets, bald midgets"
"we have seen a total of 11 midgets since 12/6/03. That's an approximate average of 2.2 midgets per day!!!!"
fear of baked beans
"there is something so contrived about a solitary baked bean....they look like they're really angry about being left alone and look like their plotting how to kill you for doing so. You just can't tell what they are thinking."
"I think that when I am asleep they will make an army and come and kill me. Once, as a cruel joke, someone put a bean in my ear. I just lashed out at them and broke their arm... "
