What do you fear?

Recently, I read an article from BK Magazine (No. 157 Oct 27 – Nov 2, 2006 issue) regarding "13 things that scare the hell out of us." I stumbled upon a list of bizarre "phobia" vocabulary that I have never imaged there are such words describing strange, but true, fearful feeling. Here are some examples:

Arachibutyrophobia = fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of your mouth

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia = fear of long words

Phobophobia = fear of phobias

Tonguingphobia = fear of French kisses

Venustraphobia = fear of beautiful women

So, what do you think? Do you fear anything like those phobia described in the list? I, for sure, would never be "Venustraphobia."
