    The entire fungi kingdom. Including things like yeast.

    When I was younger I accidentally picked up a puffball mushroom instead of a rock... it was horrible! It's all squishy and rough on the outside, like stale marshmallows. They also have this disgusting gunge which oozes out of them... :afraid:

    Rather stupidly though, I'm really interested in mycotoxicology.

    I'm fascinated by heights but I'm afraid of the sensation of the fall. I mean I could cry if I'm like unbalanced
    As the great Sheldon Cooper once said:

    "A fear of heights is illogical. Fear of falling, on the other hand, is prudent and evolutionary."

    Germs are good! good to expose your body to some lovely new germs. Eat food off da floor.

    I have altocelarophobia. Fear of very high ceilings. Luckily It's gone down quite a lot, and doesn't affect me that much any more. When I was very small, to look up at a high ceiling I had to hold my mums hand and I genuinely felt physically sick or dizzy. Even now, sometimes when I look up I feel a bit uneasy. Really weird, huh? It's hard to explain how it feels, but I suppose the best I can explain it is you feel you're almost up there... nope. (Another one I saw online by other people who have it explain it by saying you feel like you're about to get sucked up there - which is also another really good explanation.)

    I don't really know that I have any. I suppose I must do, but I don't tend to think about it. I'm scarred of dying I suppose.

    When I was younger I was afraid of buttons. They scared me and whenever I touched one I had to wash my hands with all sorts of detergents and soaps available. I never worse shirts for that reason, and when I did, I made sure my time covered them so I couldn't possibly see them.
