Fears

CNN article on the top fears of British people.

BRITS'.......................MINE
1 Spiders ....................1 Death
2 Terrorism ...............2 Spiders
3 Snakes .....................3 Terrorism
4 Heights ....................4 Heights
5 Death ........................5 Flying
6 Dentists ....................6 Snakes
7 Needles .....................7 Public Speaking
8 Public Speaking .......8 Dentists
9 Debt ..........................9 Debt
10 Flying .....................10 Needles

The list on the left is the Brits' (that's the British, not Mrs. Freudline) top 10 fears and the list on the right are those fears in my order. (By the way, columns are hard to make). Not to say these are my top 10 fears. They are not. They're just an ordered list of fears, if that makes any sense. Anyway, let's break each fear down one by one.

10 Needles - Are you kidding me? I LOVE needles!!! Love 'em! When I have to get a shot or something, I usually like to watch to see what they're doing. Giving blood? Not a problem for me! Yep, needles are awesome.

9 Debt - Scared of debt? What like debt's gonna come up and bite you in the butt? Come on! Get a job, you hippie!!!

8 Dentists - Not particularly fond of dentists myself, but I wouldn't say I'm scared of them. More of a hassle than anything else.

7 Public Speaking - I'll let you in on a little secret. I kinda get a kick out of public speaking. The bigger the crowd the better. Not like I've done it a lot, but as long as I know exactly what I'm gonna say and I can have notes and what not, I'm good to go.

6 Snakes - Snakes are OK. It's not like I worry about them on a daily basis. Plus, if I see one I can just run away like a scared little girl. No worries here. Actually, I'll probably just walk away. Don't want that snake thinking it intimidated me.

5 Flying - I used to like flying. But that was before the damn terrorists made me think twice. Bumpy flights are the worst. That's also called turbulence.

4 Heights - This one has grown on me, much like the flying fear. What sucks too is that I'm worried someone is gonna push me. You can't trust people. Especially if they have two first names.

3 Terrorism - Kinda goes hand in hand with flying. It would suck if there were terrorists on a plane I was on cause that would combine the 3, 4, and 5 fears. And then, snakes would fall from the ceiling.

2 Spiders - Spiders aren't cool. I worry about them jumping me while I'm sleeping cause I'm all helpless. Why wouldn't a spider go directly for my mouth? It's the smart thing for them to do.

1 Death - D-E-D. Dead.

1 Let's just get this out of the way......public speaking.
2 Spiders/insects. I HAAAATE'M. They're so creepy and crawly.
3 Heights. Really scary, but not enough to keep me away from roller coasters or the Empire State Building, or sky diving.
Heck, I think I like heights! Though they make me kinda sweaty.
4 Ummm........to tell the truth, I don't think I'm afraid of anything else on this list. Death!? I'm not afraid of being DED. I figure if I die, I get to see what's next, if there isn't
anything, then I won't exist to feel crappy about it. Umm, debt could be one. But I think that's really a fear of not being able to afford food and shelter. Flying? Derek, you're afraid of flying?! Unless you simply felt you had to just rearrange the Brit List. Terrorism? NAH! Slow, painful beheading w/ a knife? YEAH! Dentists? I LOVE him! Free toothbrush. Needles? Uh Uh. Call me a voodoo doll! Or just plain ol' Doll if you want.
