Some of the Uk's weirdest phobias, including Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia, a fear of long words, and even a fear of peas:
Louise Arnold, from Gloucester, told ITV she had a fear of peas that prevented her walking down the frozen food aisle of a supermarket. "They tend to just look at me - ganging up on me," she explained. "All the hairs on the back of my neck go up. I have to know where they are in the supermarket before I go in. It's just controlling my life now. I would like to be a dinner lady at my daughter's school, but I'm not even able to be in the same room as someone eating them."Anyone have any of these? :D

LMAO at the peas.

Tyra Banks is scared of dolphins, she repeatedly said on her show that if she was stuck in the water and on one side there were sharks, and the other side there were dolphins, she would go to the sharks.

When I was at primary school, when I would have dinners, sometimes I would hate the back of my hand and get scared. I used to imagine myself tearing the back of my hand apart with my teeth, it used to make me cringe. I mainly had that affect if my fists were clenched or holding a knife and fork... :( Thankfully no more :)

On another note, has anyone heard that apparently Margaret Thatcher has a fear of beards? I think it's called Pogonophobia?

Here's a good site :)

I don't have a phobia of wrists, but I'm not too comfortable with them either! Especially when people bend their hands band and you can see the veins and.. bleurgh!!!

You should see Final Destination 3 and The Final Destination ;)

Yeah, im kinda like that, but if its only one floor or so then im good, but things like going up 30 storeys from a tube station, i don't care what happens im using the stairs. Worst thing also, water flumes.. omg! Wouldn't find me dead in one of those! And to help my matters.. an old mate of mine (well he was at the time!), and one of his friends locked me in an old freezer! I wanted to die!

The thought of it makes me want to throw up. You can see the kind of mental mess it gets me in.

I used to be rather bad with that, still I don't like lifts. But since going on some claustrophobic like rides at thorpe park and recently having an MRI scan. I've changed a fair bit :)
