Yeah, that's the way I am with heights. Not really scared of them per se, I can ride roller coasters, go up on tall buildings, and fly, but when I'm looking off the balcony of a tall hotel for instance, this sort of painful feeling wells up deep inside me and I have to stand back away from the railing of the balcony. I guess that is still technically fear of heights, but it's not a crippling fear. 

Same thing. Rollercoasters, climbing up stairs in a skyscraper, or boarding a plane? No problem at all. But a few months ago I was visiting a Spanish town which is like very old and traditional (fun place, looks like it belongs in a Game of Thrones episode), and it had one thing called the Suicidal's Peak or something like that, which is a small platform that goes outside a gigantig gorge, and you can see the whole extention of the land while actively seeing yourself standing over hundreds of meters of nothing below your feet. I was freaking trembling there; it's just such a puntual but invading fear I can't fend off even if I try. xD

Cockroaches are the worst things that live on this planet, particularly those that fly. Fuck 'em.

Riding a bike...

I kid you not - it is a very stupid thing, but I could never gather the courage to actually pedal for more than 2 seconds without falling.

You guys can laugh at the fact a 27 year old can't ride a bike if you want...



Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

and someone else will come and say that these are worse

 



heights, scorpions, spiders, snakes, and drowning because I don't know how to swim.

I think being afraid of stuff like snakes and spiders is a natural part of evolution because they can be poisonous and actually be deadly to us, and because of this fact we've learned to stay away from them over many years. It's like a natural instinct now.

Funny, but i'm sure there are plenty of more ridiculous fears. I couldn't imagine not riding a bike. I'm on one almost everyday. Whether it's a road bike, mountain bike, BMX, or motorcyle. I'm all about that two wheel life.
