    I have an ambivalent attitude towards spiders. I am both scared and fascinated by them, (the wonders of a biology students mind :smile:).

    Books which tell you "how to think". Articles which people say will "change your life". People who don't let the facts get in the way of the Truth...

    The phrase "______ Reform" terrifies me (read that phrase "Insurance will cost more", or "Taxes will cost you more" etc).

    Snakes and rats (fortunately, if you have the former, you don't have the latter).

    Tattooed lady bikers.

    Calculus (It might as well be taught by lady bikers).

    People who think that the slaughter of innocent people perpetrated by terrorists is somehow justified by their nonsensical religious books.
