    4. The taste of popcicle sticks yuck


    Eww, eww, YES. I take the popsicle part and put it in a bowl and eat it with a fork.
    I'm scared of sitting in a place where I can't see all the walls and doorways easily, scared of eating when it's too dark to see the food clearly (even if I know exactly what I'm eating), scared of closing the music box before it finishes, or if it stops before the end (I don't even like the sound, it's creepy, but if I accidentally start it it just has to finish), scared of big top hats.
    And terrified of insects that buzz.

        The emergency broadcast system things scared me, as well.
        Anyone remember that Dristain commercial with the talking Easter Island idols? Scared the bejeezus out of me.
        I was also scared of the sphinx in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and Koosh balls. My sister convinced me that they were alive, and would pelt me with them.

          EBS- The noise! Plus, it always said "If this were a real test, the news will be shown afterwards" or something like that. I was always scared that it was real.

          Empire Commercials- It all stared with an old commercial with a guy's face in a rug, talking about carpets or something. (Terminex does the same thing, with faces on the wall. I can't watch those commercials.)

          E.T- Eww, I'm still scared of that thing.

          Thunderstorms- That started when my Grandma pretended to be sucked out the door when one was going on.

          Cans of Soda- I used to be scared of the noise the carbonation made. I thought it as bugs crawling around in my can. I always had to pour it in a glass.

            The old intro to HBO when they showed a new movie on Saturday nights in the 80s. That intro scared me so much I had to leave when it came on.And when the american flag came on at the end of network broadcasting and the tv just going blank or making that loud buzzing noise.

                When I was about 7, I was scarred to death of the commercial bumpers for the KABC Midnight movie, as well as the logo too. That music is still in my head to this day. I also had a fear about windows. Here may be a crazy one though. I hate it when the image on the t.v. freezes. That still to this day creeps me out.

                  Our Fox affiliate (maybe every for channel did this) had this Sunday Afternoon Movie. It would show a graphic with a valet parking guy and "movie premiere" spotlights. This used to freak me out slightly... not sure why though.

                  I guess it was just weird that someone would spend their sunday afternoon watching a lame 15 year old movie instead of doing something with their life on a sunday. Sundays always bring a certain uneasiness now that I think about it. The fun, awesome part of the weekend is over, and the whole country is in a holding pattern for about a day (this is less true now than in the past). People do odds and ends, yardwork, laundry...that kind of thing. Its also the day statistically most probable that you will spend 2 hours playing gin rummy with your grandma. Its just a weird day in general, and when you throw the sunday afternoon Fox matinee on top of it, its enough to drive anyone bonkers.

                    For years I had a nightmare about a tapestry that hung over my bed coming to life. I don't know where it started from but I was sure glad when the bad dreams finally subsided.

                      Oh man.

                      WHen you watch TV and the black bit between show and commercials lasted a bit too long.

                      Not so much the beep of the emergency broadcast, but the guy's voice.

                      Sometimes, and this still scares me, a song I hear often but never pay attention to. Something like "Come on Eileen" and then there are lyrics in it I don't recognize. Like they were never there before.

                      It makes me mad at truth

                        Come On Eileen? You mean the song by Dexy's Midnight Runners?

                          Well that was an example. An actual happening was:

                          I was listening to "Our House" by Madness. You know, it's all about this geat house they remember and their family unit. I had heard it a hundred thousand times. I guess I never paid close attention.

                          So I am listening to it, on the computer and at the end it goes into acapella and then it's interrupted by the line "Something tell you that you've got to get away from it"

                          I had never heard that line in the song before in my life, at least not that I could ever remember. But that particular file had been played by me may times.

                          It freaked me out.

                            The sound of metal against metal, mainly silverware. It's a sensory thing, I still hate it.

                              Our House by Madness is a great song, but I've never heard that line before! :confused:

                                    What used to freak me out was the nuclear power plant alarm being tested.. Every month at 2pm, they still test it, until I figuredo ut what it was, it would scare the living crap out of me, cause in elementary school we would have drills practicing the emergency route everyone would take..

                                      Well do I have some interesting things to share with you all. The sound of any flying insect would and still does drive me batshit insane, the entire emergency brodcast tests would scare me until I was 8, and this might seem very strange to you shirt tags that are on the inside of the neck of a shirt always bothered me. One other thing was that I really had a problem with being sared of dolls and when it was dark out, I would always shut the blinds on the windows because I was scared of someone looking in thw window or breaking in or something, but both of those problems went away by themselves by age 10.

                                        That Pegasus from "Tri-Star Pictures".......http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w9Z_8fFlaBw

                                        I can still remember renting some movie on tape when I was a kid and when that Tri-Star thing came on, I went running into my room, jumped on the bed and put the pillow over my head as hard as I could. God, I'm so embarrased

                                          I never had a problem with the emergency broadcast test, but what really scared the hell out of me was that THX intro thing they'd play at the beginning of a movie in the theatre. Like the emergency broadcast test it was pointlessly loud and obnoxious, but you'd be in a darkened public place instead of the comfort of your own living room where you could just turn it down or change the channel. At least with the Emergency Broadcast test you'd get fair warning of what was coming, "This is only a test" they'd tell you right at the beggining, At the theatre you'd just be sitting there waiting for the movie to start, then all of a sudden the lights would go down and your expecting a few previews and the movie you've been so excited about seeing, when this monstrocity would come out of nowhere and blast out your eardrums for no apparent reason. Then at the end it would say "The audience is listening" as if to mock you.
