"To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by rights to hand down to them."~ Theodore Roosevelt (Message to Congress, Dec. 3, 1907)
Damn Spud is one heck of a scardy cat.
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
The tragedy is not that things are broken. The tragedy is that things are not mended again. - Alan Paton
Bach is the beginning and end of all music - Max Reger
It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us - Rorschach
I have thousanlegaphobia. Bad.
Thank you, Quazi!
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.
