What kind of irrational fears did you guys have as kids?

When I was a kid, I had this fear of ice cream because I was afraid that I would be walking along and trip and the cone would impale me through the eye.

I was afraid of the sun exploding and couldn't sleep normally for about a week when I was in 3rd or 4th grade.

Weird.

For the longest time i thought that zombies would break into my bedroom through my window and eat me. I would literally look out of my window to check if there were any there before i went to bed on a daily basis... And then i would have nightmares about them. >_<

I was scared of dead fish in a supermarket, because I thought they would eat me.
I blame my aunt for scaring me with fish, and the packaged deli meats.

I had a toy tonka truck that I loved and played with during the daytime, and had no fear of, but I had a reoccurring nightmare of it grabbing me by the neck and dragging me into the basement to kill me. No idea why.

Toys R us.
No seriously, I hated going there because there was this big huge E.T toy, and when I saw it, it was looking right at me.

I used to keep the closet (wardrobe, for all you Brits) door closed at night because I was afraid a ghost would come out of it and scare me.

Lego men with their arms down by their sides. All my Lego men had their arms pointing upwards or straight forwards.

I used to be afraid of scheduled televised announcements on tv. Figured it would be a giant hurricane.

Well, being told how angels, demons and ghosts were real, I was pretty god damn afraid of being alone in the dark. Looking back, I'm a little pissed.

I used to be afraid to go downstairs at night. A few windows along the way didn't have curtains, and I couldn't help but feel watched. Damn, I was a paranoid kid...

A Jim Henson TV show called "Dinosaurs" gave me nightmares for years. They were scary looking dinosaur puppets and they would eat little sentient mammals that would beg for their lives.

I used to be pretty damn scared that a UFO would come down and kidnap me for weeks after I watched an Unsolved Mysteries episode about alien abduction. While the episode was on an obviously well balanced box of crayons fell of my shelf and I took it as a sign that they were coming for me.

I thought that those insects that I killed would come one day and would be millions and wouldl all cover me and go inside my mouth and start eating me from the inside.

I saw Dreamcatcher and was terrified. I didn't want to go near a toilet because I feared a snake-thing with 15 rows of teeth would come out and eat me.

I was also terrified of that gun in Mars Attacks that turned people into skeletons.

The big one was storms. My town got hit with one that resulted in the destruction of my cubby house. Just seeing slightly dark clouds would get me terrified.

I know how you feel. I can't stand walking by windows at night because of feeling watched.

Once someone told me that I would go to a place called hell if I didn't do what they told me to do.
Took me weeks to get over that one.

I was afraid of Hotsauce, everything about it.

I also couldn't have one part of my body being wet, I needed my whole body to be wet, which is something that I still have today. It's weird I know, but it's a sickening feeling to me to have one part of my body feeling wet and the others not.

My house is by the ghetto so I hear all the stupid gangsters yelling all day, but they always had their radios on high playing their shitty rap in the middle of the night and still stop at the stop sign for like 10 minutes...I thought they were gonna come kill my family and rob the place.

I used to be afraid of a certain undead skeleton character back in the 90's when CGI still was kind of new and not really good at all. Here's a picture of the fucker.

I used to arrange them in non-humanoid shapes so I don't feel watched when the lights are out.

Bronies and furries. There's just something extremely creepy about older men dressing up as foxes and playing with dolls.
