    LOL I do it anytime I find an unlucky soul in my way if I'm going between the house and clothes line/dog run. I find slugs revolting, and squawk about like a bird when one is around me. They leave long gooey trails behind them and all over everything . Between slugs, rats and insects I have no conscience when it comes to discarding of them. I'm now going to wait on PETA to arrive at my house and throw a bucket of salt in my face due to the horrific nature of my actions lol

    My mom used to be terrified of mice. Since we lived in an old house out in the bush, there were a lot of mice. I had to dispose of the dead ones in traps ever since I can remember, since my mom couldn't touch them!

    I was asked to take part in a psychological survey and one of the questions I was asked was "What are you afraid of?"

    We all have fears over something, that fear can make us seem irrational to some whilst others admit to that fear too.

    I thought long and hard, I was asked if I was afraid of mice, rats, spiders heights and all the usual fears people have.
    I admit to not liking rats but I am not afraid of them, nor snakes (It was funny as the woman said "Snakes" and I pointed out there was a Royal Python in an aquarium in the corner of the room and she almost ran out!)

    After thinking about it I gave my answer and that was that I was afraid of fear itself.
    She thought this a very strange answer but I explained that I did not like insecure heights - like a ladder fully extended up against something but not tied at the top. However rather than allow that fear to take over I would make myself climb that ladder.
    Only one person can conquer fear and that is the person who is afraid. Irrational fears that take over one's life must be terrible - fears like those of being afraid of snakes, spiders or cattle are not irrational as all can endanger one's life!
