    Claustrophobia and, if on holiday and snorkelling a bit too far out, sharks.

    Add another to the list: being lost.
    But seriously, sasquatch scares the crap out of me. I'd rather die in a fire than drown.

    Hi, Billy Mays here with an answer!  My phobia is going a day without pitching a quality product to a loyal and trustworthy customer.  That's why even on vacations, I make sure to do yard sales!

    Oh, and I'm surprised nobody posted this video, considering it's related to the contents of the topic.

    Why are so many scared of bees? Y'all act like you've never opened up a bee hive before. :P

    I am absolutely terrified of things crawling on me, harmless or not. Other than that, maybe a slightly irrational fear of tall unstable things (like a a super tall tree).

    now that i have lost all my baby teeth, my greatest fear is losing a tooth. Or making someone lose a tooth.

    I am terrified of heights and spiders, but whenever I get the chance to expose myself to them, I am compeled to do so! It's so weird!

    I can get behind that. Some of my worst nightmares have involved losing all my teeth at once.

    It'll probably help you overcome your phobias!

    Spiders. I hate those damn things. Too many eyes, you know?

    I'm afraid of escalators and sharks. The movement of escalators just make me feel like I'm about to fall over. I've always found sea life to be a bit creepy, but sharks freak me out. Oddly enough, Jaws and similar movies don't bother me at all. I can watch fake sharks all day, but underwater nature documentaries are right out!

    I think spiders are adorable!

    I kind of like the ones that wear drops of water as hats.
