Are you afraid of something that is highly unlikely to happen to any of us?

Do certain thoughts creep into your mind at night and make you regret entertaining such an idea ?


Do you not travel on a plane because it's possible it'll crash/be blown out of the sky ?

Are you suddenly aware of what a potentially rogue asteroid might do, should it hit us ?

Do you not sleep with the windows open, should happenstance allow for an escaped chimpanzee to get into your room at night and bite your face off ?

Do you worry that you may be able to, inadvertently, birth an evil spirit into existence and that it might be one of those "The Entity" style ones ? Especially if your tush is deliciously sweet ?

Do you ever worry about sitting on the toilet that is concurrently housing a seriously poisonous spider under the seat ?


What makes you go.... and continually does so ?


I, personally, have a seriously irrational fear of escaped chimps and also camel spiders and Goblin Sharks ( google a video of one eating ) are 100% pure unadulterated nightmare fuel.

Please unleash your deepest nightmares unto this thread, should you be so inclined to do so. X <3

I obsessively save my pennies & dollars in effort to be able to dictate who will wipe my ass in old age.

After hearing my grandmother complain for 6 months about the people that were taking care of that for her - I decided it to be a worthwhile cause. If you can't pick 'em, and you aren't payin' 'em, you really have no say in the process or the finished product.

I often lay awake at night in a cold sweat frozen with fear...

...fear that I will be kidnapped by a renegade group of Beliebers and then be forced to watch Justin Bieber perform live!

Are you afraid of something that is highly unlikely to happen to any of us? no.

Do certain thoughts creep into your mind at night and make you regret entertaining such an idea ? it is mostly the banal stressors of mundane life that keep me up at night.

Do you not travel on a plane because it's possible it'll crash/be blown out of the sky ? I would not call this an especially "irrational" fear, given the fact that this is something that actually can & does happen (yeah yeah yeah give me statistics of plane vs. car crashes smart guy).

though I personally do not avoid plane travel.


Are you suddenly aware of what a potentially rogue asteroid might do, should it hit us ? nah.

Do you not sleep with the windows open, should happenstance allow for an escaped chimpanzee to get into your room at night and bite your face off ? way more worried that a human being would get into my room & stab me to death -- but I am on the second floor.

Do you worry that you may be able to, inadvertently, birth an evil spirit into existence and that it might be one of those "The Entity" style ones ? Especially if your tush is deliciously sweet ? no, that would be rad af.

Do you ever worry about sitting on the toilet that is concurrently housing a seriously poisonous spider under the seat ? no, more worried that its housing horrible diseases that will make my penis sick.

I have necrophobia and it's very severe. Most nights I have a panic attack because of it, and most days it kills any activity that I typically enjoy and reduces me down to a very small amount of things I can do to spend my time. I can't get a job, I can't drive a car, and I used to be unable to leave the house because of it, though since I've moved to a better area that's no longer an issue.

I also destroyed several relationships because of the panic attacks it caused, I was placed in a mental hospital once, got kicked out of my uncle's place, etc etc etc.
If there is a God, it's me.

I don't think I have such fear (tho sometimes I can't sleep and I have honestly no idea why) but my buddy is convinced that somewhere on this planet there is this tarantula that will swim through the oceans, walk thousand miles from some God forgotten hole in a jungle just to kill him at night. And I can tell he is serious

i'm afraid of dying/suicide because i know how big of an impact it would have on the people who know me, around me... I just don't want to hurt anyone

i guess it's not an irrational fear, but it's something i fear everyday
just like losing a limb or an eye...


the only true irrational fears i've ever had were creepy clowns (as a kid, not anymore obviously lol)
i also used to have lots of dreams where i'm stranded in the middle of the ocean surrounded by sharks...

another one is the darkness / being home alone at night, the whole house is dark
i always keep a few lights on in the house to avoid the house being broken into

Do you have an irrational fear? What keeps you up at night?


I'm afraid that someone will break into the various studios, vaults, and safes holding the masters of the greatest music ever recorded, and steal them so they can permanently affix pitch correction effects to all the vocal tracks on them. They then put the masters back exactly where they had first stolen them, without anyone being the wiser. Imagine the utter horror of Bruce Dickinson's vocals sounding like Will.I.Am's, or Ronnie James Dio's vocals sounding like Kanye West's, or Rob Halford's vocals sounding like Lil Wayne's...and there would be no way to return them to their original state.

On a lighter note...

I also have the fear of someone breaking into my house, stealing everything in it, and replacing everything with an exact replica.

i mean mainly the fact that he alternates between a bark that has way too much conviction for such piss-poor lyrics and a textureless wail that really sounds like it should be the last sound to come out of whatever produces it, while straining for every single note

his live performances were poor in the 80s but these days he has about five notes in the entire show that he'll hold for more than two seconds, he can't even attempt the high ones (not that he ever hit them back in the day) and it's a proper shame because in every other respect they're a pretty great band, if a bit repetitive

You should check out the Beast Over Hammersmith concert video sometime. Possibly his best performance to be captured on film. I understand that as a person ages, their singing voice can be hit-or-miss depending on which show they're performing at on any given day, depending on their touring schedule, especially one as heavy as Iron Maiden's can be. The show schedule for the Powerslave tour was particularly brutal, for example. It also doesn't help when a singer's vocal style is aggressive and unrelenting.

The birds keep me up in the early morning, for some reason 4am in an acceptable time to start singing at one another if you're a small bird. They're adorable and everything, but I just want to shake the tree

What keeps you up at night?
The sun rising and shining directly through my window and into my eyes and traffic from the highway directly across the street from the house and sometimes the train only about a block away because I work at night and sleep during the day but other than that nothing.

I mean relationship stuff used to keep me up but that's done and over with.

My fear of heights used to be pretty bad. Like, I was afraid of driving over bridges and stuff. It's not that bad anymore, but I still get nervous and my hands sweat when I am on the upper floors of a really tall building, or roller coasters and such.

The unexpected loss of a loved one is the most insidious and terrifying fear I have. It's a very basic bitch fear, but getting a knock on the door from some police officers to report it or finding a loved one dead when I come home from work is something I worry about often.

I think the fixation of that scenario stems from the day I found my dad had spontaneously collapsed and was bleeding on the floor of our home, having suffered a major stroke. I was the only person in the house to help him. He looked just as scared and as helpless as I was.

I feel that my fear is very much justified. but I have difficulty controlling it; I worry about it too frequently and let it affect my emotions too much.
