    Have you got any fears, phobias or aversions that most folk would not have...?

    I've got two -

    1) I hate the touch of metal on my teeth, even watching movies where people put knives between their teeth sets my teeth off.

    2) I'm claustrophobic, but only horzizontally. I got snagged under a car while playing hide and seek when I was a kid and the owner nearly drove off while I was under it. The car had to be jacked up to get me free.

    I suffer from a bit of OCD, in that if I do or touch something with my right side I have to do the same on the left... And I try not to step on cracks.. but if I do, then I have to step on another with the other foot.
    This has manifested its self badly since my brain fart

    The last time I was in an MRI scanner was for 45 minutes. To keep myself from hitting the "panic" button I silently counted to 60.... 45 times.

    Pulling apart cotton wool
    Deep water at lock gates.
    Under a car - bit iffy.

    Went into a Salisbury cathedral and my daughter when she was about 7, she got very uneasy.
    She doesn't like high spaces.

    When I was in secondary school the boot hall had terazzo floor. If you put your foot on top of a lid of polish tin and moved back and forward....
    I saw a junior boy getting one good kick in the ass from a senior.

    I fear car drivers, especially BMW drivers, when I'm out on one of my bikes.

    At least BMW drivers near France use public transport a lot, as they are too embarrassed to actually drive their's.

    It's not flying you should be scared of - it's crashing.
