    There was a phobia thread a while back. This would be a good adddition. As would my Trypophobia. Mine isn’t a fear, it’s an aversion with nausea. Certain organic objects with many holes in them freak me out and make me sick. I can’t even google image....Apparantly it’s a left over traiit from when these things could poison you. The types with seeds or eyeball looking things in the holes crush me. Although I’m fine with strawberries. Anyone else have this?

    The holes thing was played big in the last season of American Horror story, they zoomed into this stuff and really made a character who shared the fear emphasize it

    Don't watch it!!

    That's what happens when you live in an igloo.

    Fuck that! I’m not afraid like I would be a snake or a rational fear. But I get total revulsion. Actually that show did that to me over a few things....

    When you're too slow to play lead and the band doesn't need rhythm guitars.

    I see where you're going with that... One can not only shred on bass but can be the only guitar in a band or only instrument period!

    I think @Clippy should stick to blowing goats and leave the balloons to the professionals.

    I've thought about it actually. It would take some serious shredding to snap a string. I have had strings break while tuning though and it doesn't break like you think it would. They just snap off at the base. They don't curl up and there isn't any danger of them hitting you in the face or anything.
