    Don't get me wrong. I still feel nerves. It's always scary. But getting more experience allows you to control your fear

    The burglar in sims 2 hahaha, also that creepy head from art attack
    This!!! Also, when I first got the Sims (the original one), I must have been something like 10 or younger at the time and my sim took a potion and turned into a zombie. I was so scared I literally fell off my chair and never played it ever again.

    Chemicals... Pretty stupid when you want to go into chemical physics.

    In short, when I was in year 7 I was put working with the class idiot. Instead of putting one half spatula of calcium into the water (we were looking at the reactivity series) she went and poured loads in and then plugged the test tube with a bung. It exploded and calcium hydroxide solution got splashed in my face.

    I rushed over to the sink and washed it off but when the teacher came over to ask if I was okay I was in such a panic that I turned around and said: "is my face still intact?!" I feel like such a muppet every time I remember that.

    It took me 5 years to get over my fear of chemicals after that. Though somewhat strangely considering what had happened, I still couldn't resist studying chemistry.

    Omg! :eek: I guess that's a valid reason to be scared about something. I don't blame you for asking that question in year 7 after that event tbh, that's pretty terrifying!

    One of my friends in primary school had a German Shepherd dog called Sabre and I was absolutely terrified of him. At that age, the dog wasn't much shorter than me.

    Used to be scared of going anywhere in the house where there were no lights at night when I was really young, because I was such a pussy to go and turn the lights on haha.

    But now I no longer care about it anymore, but I do still get afraid, especially after watching a scary horror movie which makes me paranoid.
