  • Do you have any phobias?

    What fears do you have that are irrational or illogical?(don't tell us that you're afraid to swim with Great White Sharks will a leg wound, for example)

    I used to have an irrational fear of lightning. It used to freak me out even if I was in a car or house. It originated with a childhood incident when I as at a little league practice and, while I was in the on-deck circle, lightning hit the backstop. I've since gotten over it.

    I also once had an extreme fear of public speaking, which I got over (can't do what I do for a living if you are unwilling to speak in public).

    Not sure that I have any true phobias today, though I really don't like to be in large crowds of people.

        Phobiphobia - the fear of fear!

        Seriously, the only two biggies are that I will accidently hurt a kid while I am driving, and I don't do too well with water...the swimming kind. I float like a rock.

          Sam, is the fear of the water a new thing? I thought that they called you the Mark Spitz of missouri when you were in high school.

            Who ever gave you that idea? Really, I can't swim a stroke. My son swims like a fish, my father used to swim like a fish....I swim like a rock.

                  No, I think his nickname was "Spit Marks" (some sort of tobacco reference, I'd wager)

                        Mine is ants cuz they don't come one at a time. They bring every fricken bro, sis, mom, dad, friend, acquaintance including Ms. Queen..... The reason is as a young child my parents kept the sweets up top in our kitchen cupboard. One morning I crawled up there, opening and stepping up one drawer at a time to get to the counter and reach for the goodies. Well our whole counter had ants all over them and they were crawling all over me as I was going for the goodies and I'll never forget that. It totally freaked me out.

                        I will save a spider, but any ant that comes my way is dead!!!!!!!!

                              Can not stand being in small places including not shutting doors in rooms and yes bathrooms. Thank god I get my own thrown

                              Large crowds--Christmas shopping sucks!

                              People I don't know touching me. Doctors, dentists and haircut appointments are a bear for me. I get the sweats and my blood pressure is through the roof.

                                Utter, please provide some additional background on your apparant vehement dislike of bagels. Have you ever had a real new york bagel? Do you dislike all fish or just smoked fish? Did you have a specific bad experience with a bagel? Any particular type of bagel?

                                Do you dislike all bread products, or just bagels? Inquiring minds want to know, especially at this point in the offseason.

                                According to a reliable journalist that we all used to follow very closely and some of us still do, the rams front office learned of the situation with Littles brother either "before or during the game" did they do the right thing waiting until after the game to tell him

                                general counsel
                                Should the cigarette companies have legal liabiity to consumers? On the one hand, they are producing a product that medical evidence suggests is both deadly and addictive, while at the same time they deny that nicotine is addictive. On the other hand, there is the concept of assumption of risk and responsibility for your own choices.

                                Where Logic Ends, Starbucks Begins
                                AvengerRam_old
                                I'll admit it.

                                I'm a Starbucks junky. Virtually every day, I go to my local Starbucks, or a SoFla equivalent called The Roasted Bean, and get my skim milk mocha.

                                Mind you, I'm a person who takes pride in living my life in a manner consistent with the principles of logic.

                                And yet, there I am, every day, shelling out three and one-half dollars (enough to buy a decent lunch, if you know where to get good cheap eats) for what is essentially a cup of coffee.

                                Now, I suppose I could try to justify it by saying that I can't (at least not without a decent machine) make my own mocha (you need espresso and steamed milk to make a good one), but the truth is, if I really wanted to, I could buy a machine and, in the long run, spend much less on coffee.

                                Heck, I've even found an acceptable substitute by mixing regular coffee with a bit of hot chocolate (readily available at most gas stations for a dollar and a half).

                                This can only be described as true addiction. I need my caffeine, and I need it in a big cardboard cup with a fancy coffee house logo on it.

                                Somebody... help me... please! I can't stop!
