    Here is the journal question my teacher gave my class:

    Code:
    What are you the most scared of?  Both tangible and intangible things.  Why are you scared of it?
    This is truly one of the most hardest questions I have been asked in science class. So I need all of your help. Thanks.

    Here's my list of tangible things so far:

    English Emo People (In short E.E.P. prounced 'EEP!'), because they are sadistic, and look scary.
    English Emo Wannabees (In short E.E.W. prounced 'EEW!'), because they want to be sadistic, and look scary.

    I'll edit this list as I begin to think of more things.

    Please do not say "I am not scared of anything." If you do, then you are scared of denial.

    Anything real or perceived which threatens on'e life should cause the greatest fear. Usually, self-preservation is considered to be the dominating motivation in a sane vertebrate.

    Death

    Federal Law Inforcement
    Loud noises [strictly physiologically, though]
    My tires exploding on Rte.128 [it's a Boston thing]
    Falling and heights [I don't know if that's one or two fears]

    Oh, that is reallly obvious, isn't it? It's all about control, not my control, but some powerful unpredictable force exterting control over me.

    I also fear religious fanaticism, chin hair, and Spandex.
    Why do they want us to believe Conspiracy Theories?

    Being stopped on the highway between Algiers airport and Algiers at nine o'clock at night by what appeared to be an army patrol. This at the height of the internal problems in Algeria that claimed the lives of over 100,000 people - including persons shot on the highway between Algiers airport and Algiers, at night, by individuals pretending to be an army patrol.

    When you run the calculation in your head that reveals you can't run for cover without being gunned down and therefore your continued existence beyond the next three minutes is contingent upon this being a real army patrol, it can be somewhat unsettling.

    Looking back, would you have wanted to miss the experience?

    Most often, I guess, people say they are afraid of something when they believe such a fear is unfounded. I'm afraid of chickens, having been pecked as a small child by them. It's really silly, because most of my friends from the university could help me in conditioning another response, but since I never go around chickens, it's not a problem for me. Besides, the scars remind me the past is real .

    when ever you see anything you arnt exactly seeing it it would over whelm your brain and youwoudl feel like your on Acid... everything you see its beucase you remember it. Even when your in new places your mind in fact relates it to places you have already been to so it may still be a little over whelming but not as much as if you were on a jello planet or somthing...because of a past experience no matter if it was tramatizing or not you still relate things to it such as people who are afraid of Emo people such as nima, He may have seen an emo person and it starteled him and through out that when he sees an emo person his mind relates it to that one incedent and he gets scared. I am in fact VERY scared of spiders and it is because when ever I saw a spider my father would go "I would watch out its very poisonis", when I see spiders I'm scared of dying. that is only for objects I dont understand hights and closed spaces
