It's weird how we develop childhood fears for certain sounds and music that others would find perfectly normal. I wonder why this happens.

I had this one fear from watching the WB classic film, Space Jam, and that one scene that scares me is where the monstars uses poor Michael Jorden as a ball to demonstrate their Basketball skills! :o

i was deathly afraid of black holes , and maybe some other astronomical or astrological (dunno the difference) objects, as a kid. i also had acrophobia and arachnophobia although ive mostly gotten over them.
Hello, I make a lot of typos
specific people know my whereabouts though

my wifi is as useful as a brick

im more active on discord

:idea: I'm not (completely) dead; I rarely talk because I usually have nothin to say; I'll talk when I actually have a comment I want to make, or if someone asks me somethin...

nostalgia is a beautiful thing, isn't it?

anything before 2020 is most likely me being a weirdo or an idiot.

astronomical refers to the study of stars and celestial bodies, astrological refers to a person's traits and mood being caused and altered by the period they were born in (i.e. astrological signs)

I was very afraid of urban legends. There's one on my country that says something about a sp00ky blonde woman showing up on people's bathrooms, and, by the time I heard that urban legend (as a kid), my bedroom door faced - guess what? - the bathroom. Ah, good times.

i never performed a shelljump and it's sad I did a grand total of 4 shelljumps in my life!

I've never liked urban legends either. They can really get you paranoid.

I completely agree. Black holes are terrifying.

I remember getting terrified when lights repeatedly turn on and off (like an electricity problem), now it's just annoying

Oh geez, if I was little and I saw that, I would have thought it was a ghost.

when I was a lil kid and when I was on a short vacation, the toilet lights had motion sensors, and not only it was awkward to see the lights going on from just entering the room, but I was also afraid they wouldn't turn off, causing a big waste of energy

also when I had crumpled fingers from swimming for the first time in my life I panicked so fucking hard, fearing they would stay like this

Still using the legacy editor? Get SMBX2 and PGE, it will improve your experience significantly. Here's why. And remember, Yoshis are tools to be used and discarded.

Wowie this thread is dead, last post was 1 year and 6 days ago by me

When I was little I had a strange fear about screens and sounds from phones and computers when they are turning off.
