    Hardly surprising. Prostitutes are generally not too fussy where they get their next dollar from.

    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    Have you met Julia Gillard? Or heard her open her mouth?
    You may think her accent is cute. But it's not!! It sounds like .... A foreigner doing a really bad australian accent. We don't talk like that!

    The joke's on the marines:

    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Agoraphobia.

    I have that. It comes with the territory of social anxiety, but weirdly enough, I'm not afraid of public speaking.

    I guess the difference is casual socializing has no structure. Public speaking has lots of structure. When you're giving a speech, you don't have to deal with smart asses interrupting you and claiming words have no reliable meaning.

    I have a mild form of claustrophobia, it just appears time to time when I feel that I lack some space. I get real frustrated and crappy.
    I had arachnophobia when I was young, but for some reason, it just disappeared somehow

    Did you spend time in an APC? I heard, in Korea, those things get cold as hell and mess with people.

    The tennis balls are meant for the Sailors, USNavy.

    Re: Do you have a phobia?

    When I sold my house I built there was one far corner of the floor I never insulated because there was virtually no room. The inspector put it on his list of things I had to do when someone bought it so I crawled under there, then layed flat on my back and pulled myself along using floor joist that were right in my face. Suddenly I couldn't stand it and got the Hell out. I guess thats claustrophobia, never knew I had that. I hired some pro insulation kid to do it and it didn't bother him at all, best 100 bucks I ever spent!

    The smart ass answer I was going to give was, I have libophobia, I immediately get a creepy feeling when around a lib.
