Found another phobia today on a friend's FB timeline. Atychiphobia, fear of failure, rejection, or not being good enough. That's got to be pretty close to death and public speaking. Maybe it's too similar to social phobia..
Also, that "US" media being referenced is owned by an Australian national. and the single largest private share holder is a Saudi.
I think they have similarities. In both cases it is something/someone that are very close to humans, but still not totally the same. Totally different is less scary, I wanted to say like who is scared of a tree, but many people are, but again, mainly in the cases they look like actual being, seeming to have faces mouths and crooked hands. So again, as soon as something seems alive, but isnt it can freak people out and people are also freaked out if they don't understand the behaviour ( why is it doing that... that is not a normal reaction in this situation..)
- Lactochronophobia - fear of drinking milk past its expiration date
- Monsantophobia - fear of genetically altered vegetables
- Quizzophobia - fear of sub-average JetPunk scores
An old name for spider was atorcoppe or attercop. meaning pusshead or poisonhead. Though I see the connection with adder, poisonous snake aswell, so you could perhaps consider it as adderhead. (and just found out welsh calls it pryf copyn)
In Danish and Norwegian a spider is still called edderkop(p).
The current word for spider, comes from weaver/spinner, it spins a web
I'm scared of throwing up, that's Emetophobia o-o
Or better yet, the fact that a large portion of the country are willing to support him no matter what is probably the scariest thing of all.
In middleschool they showed us the movie "the Wave" that has definitely left an impression
Lights up the skyline to show where you are.
Belonephobia: fear of sharp objects.
In my case... needles!
...I do realise later I could've just put the start of the phobia, too, but I thought it wasn't there because closed spaces didn't work.
To be more constructive I think Aerophobia is more the fear of air or wind than the fear of flying (which is pretty close to Aviophobia).
