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


    You can hear it being sung backup during the second chorus.

    Protecting the new ways for me and for you.

        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.

                Cockroaches and rides with animatronic dinosaurs, actually they still terrify me, except I dont mind killing roaches now but I still jump when one surprises me by crawling near me.

                    Haha, you're gonna laugh at this, but I used to have the Windows 95 demo disc, and I would always run and hide whenever the screen popped up and the Microsoft Sound played. I have no idea why.

                      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.


                      Update: I went to the doctor's office this past week and when she went to stick the tongue depressor in my mouth I gagged like no other. *Grits teeth* It's so...weird. And irrational. I can't explain it, but, whatever. Just one of them things.

                        DOLLS. I was SO scared of these things. I remember my Mom bought me a beautiful porcelain doll once and when I got it home, I couldn't even bear to look at its face, so I put it where I couldn't see it!

                          Don't feel alone. I was scarred silly by the very same thing when I was a kid. For some reason I used to think that the music would signal the return of Satan himself, lol. I am so glad that that is behind me. Now if only I an do something about the Emergency Broadcast System.

                              seriously, are you newbies not aware that half of these people haven't been on the site for a long time?

                              common sense says that if you look at the date of the post and see that it's a member that hasn't posted anything recently, you wouldn't bump the damn thread. oh wait, nevermind, you're NECROBUMPING

                                    Frogs I have no idea why. Seeing a big pair of eyes looking back at me outside of my window made me scared of the dark and windows. Glass panels one the second level inside of a shopping mall really scared me I was always afraid the glass would fall out and I would fall out too.

                                      Hard to tell, considering you can't view someone's post history any more. Pudgietheparrot was definitely still posting much more recently than five years ago.

                                      Necrobumping should not draw such a shitstorm of bitching as it does. This forum is really slow. Some people only come on a few times a year.
