    Re: Your Greatest Fear

    Fear was the wrong word. Nothing on the list causes feelings of fear, perhaps concern to a greater or lesser degree, but certainly no emotions resulting in the fight or flight syndrome which results from fear.

    Other items on the list are somewhat passe, such as "illegal immigration." Multi-culturalism has already resulted in the loss of our culture and country, illegal immigration seems almost like ancient history in the face of the destruction caused by all of the immigrants that have colonized the United States.

    Re: Your Greatest Fear

    personal : losing my senses (ie hearing, sight, etc) and the ability to move and to do the other things I'm good at.

    societal : people become so myopic that we screw up everything with war and effectively re-burn the library of Alexandria.

    Oh crap! You mean we might have to do this all again. Ok, I can fear that.

    If you have a specific fear that is not listed, please post it.
    Cancer.

    i had a pet rat in college; her name was Apollonia. she was super sweet and friendly, and could do tricks.

    sewer rats are another story, however.

    Apollonia would have converted you. i found her a surprisingly effective way of meeting girls. of course, i did end up single, so maybe it didn't work so well.

    she rode around in my sleeve, poking her little nose out, and she was even housebroken.

    I'm a bit like that with spiders, although i generally give then safe passage out the front door. once, a bold jumper decided to say hello to my face when i was at speed on the interstate. i about flipped the car over the cliff a la Toonces. my heart rate returned to normal about three days later.
