This is a question Phobias

What gives you the heebie-jeebies?

It's a bit strong to call this a phobia, but for me it's the thought of biting into a dry flannel. I've no idea why I'd ever want to or even get the opportunity to do so, seeing as I don't own one, but it makes my teeth hurt to think about it. *ewww*

Tell us what innocent things make you go pale, wobbly and send shivers down your spine.

Those F'ing Flying Daddy Longlegs
'Tipulidae Phobia'

Spiders don't bother me at all, even the long skinny ones and fat hairy ones, and I’ll tell you for why, because they are predictable. The spider is in the bath/on the floor/wherever, and ive got good old reliable gravity on my side making sure that’s where it stays.

What sick fucker decided to give these little bastards the ability to fly? Not just fly but awkwardly hop about like they're stop-motion animated like some awful harryhausen monster. And they go for you as well, if anything a spider will do its best to run away from you, but on these guys, they think to themselves 'I could have him' and fly right for your face and hair!

My biggest fear is when im alone and one comes in to my room, so I look for something to destroy it with, but while im looking I lose track of where it went... the *panic* sets in...

Where. the. fuck. did. it. go?

I’m backed in to a corner in abject terror like someone from the old school Doctor Who episodes encountering some awful alien creature that the budget doesn't streach to showing so its all down to the look on the persons face to show how scary it is.

Anyone whos played Resident Evil or Silent Hill and has found themselfs in a room where they can *hear* the monster but not see it will know my fear...

*Shudders* That bloody school in Silent Hill.

This probably wont help
But Daddy Longlegs have one of the most potent poisons known to man. Luckily they don't have fangs with which to administer it. Pray they don't mutate

The Sewer in Silent Hill was scary, no radio =(

@Reaper - false
Crane flies don't have any venom glands at all - I already replied here:

Daddy confusion!
Perhaps it's time to explain that in the UK Crane Flies are known as 'Daddy Long Legs' whereas everywhere else the nickname applies to spiders whose venom could kill but whose ickle toofipegs can't penetrate human skin.

Well, none that anyone's met yet.
