    What possibly stupid, everyday-type things used to terrify you guys when you were little? (not TV shows or movies)

    for me it was whenever anyone popped a balloon with a pen and the awful beeping of the "this is a test of the emergency broadcast system" messages--if i knew either of those were coming id run to my room and lock myself in

      Yeah, the emergency broadcast test was/is really weird. Me no likey.

      The theme song to television's "MASH" still makes me recoil a bit, even to this day. I used to hear it late at night when I was a little kid with insomnia, and its become ingrained into my memory as "you need to get to sleep, your body cannot function without sleep, why can't you get to sleep"

      Television station sign-off messages. It was like the end of the link to the known world.

              I remember when I was a little kid I would walk past this one church St. Lawrence O'Toole and I was always scared that one day the giant metal Jesus on the side of the wall was gonna fall off and kill me. Scarily enough this church is located right across the street from a funeral home.

                          I was scared of unkown but who it isn't? And I was always scared of/creeped out by a town siren. It always made my skin crawl, specially as a kid. I never understood why it went off. Even now they are still a lil creepy. Was scared of alarm clocks too, just creepy beeping.

                            Oh, me too. As I'm typing this I'm gritting my teeth and cringing. I HATE the feeling of wood. Just the texture, smell....everything. Especially popsicle sticks, because that involves putting wood in my MOUTH...Ugh, just the thought of it makes me shudddder. Same thing with paper lollipop sticks. Can't do it, man.
                            Cookie!!! OM NOM NOM!

                              When I was nine years old, I watched Kubrick's adaptation of "The Shining." BAD idea! I developed a phobia of bathtubs with the shower curtain drawn for at LEAST two years. I would NEVER go into the bathroom late at night if I knew the curtain was drawn.

                              *shudders*

                                I don't have the phobia anymore but when I was a kid I hated windows at night, I always thought that I'd see someone peak in or just sit there with a straight face staring inside. Like someone with a burgler mask and.....I know this is funny but aliens, the kind with the big heads and big dark eyes. It's the way I pictured it. I don't remember where it comes from though. Nowadays I'd just unleash my fists of fury *wink*

                                My cousin has a phobia of orange juice with pulp because he always pictures the pulp as flies or bugs.

                                  Oh my God, ME TOO! I still have that phobia...especially if I've just watched a really scary movie, I'm scared to get up and close the window because of my irrational fear that something is going to be staring right back.

                                  And when I was little, I was PETRIFIED of E.T.(still am) And I was scared whenever I went to the bathroom at night, because I was scared that E.T. (this might sound totally ridiculous) lived in my shower and would attack me if I opened the shower curtain. Of course, I'm totally over that, but it caused me many terrifying nighttime trips to the bathroom when I was a little kid.

                                    I've heard that fear of E.T. before, I wonder if it's more common than I would think. I liked E.T. as a kid. My phobia of windows ended about the time right before going to highschool, but one thing that still freaks me out is *drumroll* Teletubbies!

                                        Head lights freak me out too. My bedroom is right next to the neighbor's drive way and when they leave for their graveyard job I get freaked out by their headlights. Plus the headlights are always shining through my window because my bedroom faces the street.

                                        Commercials on tv for 976/1-900 numbers those have always freaked me out. And they still do not as much though. But the text commercials don't for some reason.

                                        Surgical and dust masks I don't know why but when I see people wearing them I freak out about those too.

                                          Music boxes of any kind really make me uneasy. Opening them and hearing that haunting, creepy mechanical melody... the whole thing is f'ed up.
                                          That last time I opened one, I literally said "Fuck this!" and slammed it shut. I'm sure someone could do some psychological analysis on that, but I'd rather let my neurosis lay dormant and just stay the hell away from those things.
