"What are some very irrational fears that you have and if you told anyone they would say, 'Wow, that's weird.'?" –– Oh, we're going to go down this rabbit hole, are we?

Okay, fair enough.

You can thank Redditor VeryChunkyChili for that, by the way. Let's get this going, shall we? In the meantime, I'd advise this individual to steer clear of their nearest Wendy's.


"Im scared..."

I'm scared that a bug is going to crawl into my hairdryer, and when I go to turn it on, it's going to shoot the bug into my hair.

"That some toys..."

That some toys in my room would "poison" any drink I left unattended, to turn me into a toy.

Obviously nonsense, but I still don't leave drinks in there unattended.

"I am convinced..."

I am convinced that, one day, I will find a dead body so I am consequentially always looking for one.

"The enemies..."

Remember Animorphs? The enemies in that series were slug people that crawled in your ear at night and took over your body, but you are still conscious in your head and can experience everything they are doing. So for like 5 years I slept in my bed and covered my ears with my blanket.

"I have this weird fear..."

I have this weird fear that every time I go to clear out my body of waste, you know what I mean, I worry that I'm actually asleep and in reality am at work or in public just dumping my load in front of people. So every time I sit down on the toilet I have to pinch myself to ensure I'm awake and conscious. It's definitely the weirdest habit I have and I have no idea where it stems from.

"9 times out of 10..."

I have a phobia of balloons. 9 times outta 10 when I tell people this they find a balloon and squeeze it and pop it right in front of me, to see if I actually have a phobia.

"I'm afraid of..."

Going to the bathroom with the shower curtain closed. I'm afraid of someone or something hiding behind the curtain and waiting to attack me while I'm vulnerable on the toilet.

"Every time..."

Every time I drive over a large overpass I get a moment where I fear it will collapse.

"I wouldn't call it a fear..."

i wouldn't call it a fear, but flour makes me really cringe. if i'm watching a cooking show and people are touching flour or rubbing it on the table i have to shut my eyes. if i was making bread or something, i'll touch it, but i'll hate every second of it.

"I don't like to walk..."

Landmines. I don't like to walk through random yards or field because landmines are scary.

There has NOT been a war in my area for about a hundred and fifty years.

Any engaged couple looks forward to the big day when after months of planning, they get to tie the knot and declare their love in front of family and friends.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
