This is a question Fears and Phobias

I'll level with you. I'm really freaked out by loose buttons. I'm fine while they're doing their job, but once they're free the evil bastards are a major threat to my life. Tell us what spooks you, and how you cope. Also: church bells, doner kebab salads, death.

Desert story
I have a friend who was ex-marine. He told me that on one occassion he was hiking lone through the desert, and felt something on his leg. Looking down he realised he was being bitten by fire ants; known to be particularly aggressive in the region. So he did the only thing he could think of, which was to start running.
After 20 minutes or so he spotted a small lake, with a jetty, so he pelted towards it, but to his horror as he arrived it just seemed to melt - it was a mirage! Eventually he somehow made it home alive. But to this day if you ask him if there's anything that frightens him, he always gives the same blunt reply; "Fierce ants. Faux piers".

Tenuous.
Mirages don't usually include details like surrounding amenities.
