Besides having major prima donna complexes, celebutards love to claim strange phobias. Megan Fox hates paper? really?

Things with poison or stingers bother me, but that isn`t anything uncommon..

I am very bothered by open spaces (starting somewhere around a 50-100 foot radius without... well I`m not sure how to phrase that other than "something sufficient?"

I also generally expect myself to fall if something feels even slightly off balance (even just the way people are sitting at a table)

other than that, mostly just random paranoia and OCD..

Balloons for me. Like the ones you blow up for birthday parties. Even the thought of one possibly popping sends me into a panic. Dont ask me why. And only when they`re blown up (or in the process of being), otherwise they dont bother me, and neither do the helium ones. It`s just that particular kind. It puts me under so much anxiety to be around them that when a friend was throwing a party for his wife, I mentioned this embarassing little phobia and he wouldn`t decorate with or have them anywhere. Nice guy. I have no idea HOW this started. BUt reading others` comments here I dont feel so weird now lol. Thanks guys.

Mine is when silk or silk-like material is rubbed against itself.

They forgot Howie Mandel`s extreme, EXTREME case of mysophobia (germs). It`s actually kind of like Monk, maybe even worse.

I don`t think half of these are really phobias, Megan fox said she doesn`t like paper like people don`t like nails on chalkboards, which i can wholeheartedly understand. I for instance don`t like when two bits of unfinished ceramic rub against each other.

Me too! I haven`t been able to touch my tv at night because I`m scared Samara is going to grab my wrist when I go to turn it on/off.

I`m usually pretty good with scary movies like that, but Paranormal Activity straight up f*cked with me. I can`t go to sleep without the light and my tv on, and if ome of the many drafts in our house moves my door i `bout pooe myself.

I can`t stand clowns, having to stay a long time in the dark by myself (unless I`m going to sleep), heights (I`m fine with rolling coasters though), and having to talk to people. I have somewhat of a social phobia and have a really hard time talking to people the first few times around and I can feel more comforble.

I`m sorry for saying this about beloved animals, but I have to agreed with Tyra`s fears. Why would anyone dare to play with a wild animal that could attack you. Just read this:

i have an intense phobia of the girl from the ring. even watching scary movie 3 gives me nightmares for over a month. also, if i watch one of those scare videos like the maze game, then i will not be able to sit alone in a room for the next few weeks.

I have a fears of tazers, falling, and deep water(because I can`t swim very well).

And I`m only afraid of deep water aka oceanic stuff, if there`s not a boat nearby. I`ve jumped into water 5-10 miles out with a life jacket on and as long as I can climb back onto the boat, I`m good. I`ll even dive down and look around.

I`ve got a distance I have to be away from something without a rail. Anything closer and I`ll have to sit down, because I`m paranoid I`ll fall off the edge.

And I don`t have a single problem with guns, but even hearing a tazer zap scares the crap out of me. I have no problems with tesla coils, lightning, electricity in any other form... just tazers. Lmao.

I`m terrified of bugs, clowns, and heights. But those are pretty normal. What really freaks me out, thats weird, is making phone calls. I damn near have a panic attack. Doesn`t bother me to pick up the phone when someone calls, but I just can`t make a call.

Paper! Oh my gosh, I got made fun of so much in school because I absolutely hate touching paper.

I have also never been able to touch chalk. My douchey teacher found out and always used to send me to the board to do math problems.

I have a lot of regular fear like spiders and birds, but my weird phobia is thread on the floor.
I had a crazy humane society lady tell me that cats will eat thread thats on the floor and it will cut up their intestines and die. I will cry if I see someone throw thread on the floor even if there aren`t cats in the building.
I`m like, having a breakdown writing this.

It`s funny, but I share the same issue as Megan Fox. I get the "willies" touching paper with dry hands.

Moths. When you squish them, they turn to dust. That is pure evil.

@Sigon, I know what you mean, although I think its the smell that triggers it for me. The second I walk into an antique shop I want to throw up. I`m not afraid of them, I just get sick and dizzy.

Antiques have a very strong odor (wooden ones anyway.)

That was an interesting list. I`m glad I`m not exactly phobic about anything. The only things I have recurring nightmares about are some of my school teachers. I`m fine talking to them during the day, but I have nightmares about them and can never, ever ask favors of them without panicking beforehand. I think it`ll be better once I`ve been accepted to college and don`t have to talk to them much any more.

I have quite a few very intense irrational fears. I`m afraid of raccoons, vacuum cleaners, cashiers (if a store doesn`t have a self checkout and I don`t have a friend to do it for me i wont go) and the song In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins.

these have slowly gotten better over the years but no one can figure out why I have them.

I actually have a very strage feeling around antiques, not a fear persay. My one friend who is a little bit out there says that it is a heightened awareness of the "energy levels" around items that have history associated with them, or that "spirits attach themselves to"....whatever it is its like a tingling in my brain and I tend to get disoriented and dizzy. i`ve even lost my balance once while touring an old historical museum...maybe thats what Billy Bob has...

I hate hippos. Not really a fear-fear, I know they`re not going to come charging at me in my sleep or anything lol. But I can`t stand to look at them, and there is no way in hell I`m going near them in the zoo!

Nicole Kidman is perfect in every way, she IS a butterfly made into human form so her dislike of them is understandable!

Celebutards are just other humans.
I hate antiques too, not out of fear, but because my parents would drag me and my brother to those stupid stores all the time and we`d come so close to ending our lives with tiffany lamps out of the purest boredom.
