BEES!!! I can't think of a single other phobia I have (unless you count the fear of being squashed (which is actually mild claustrophobia)), but this one can keep me inside the house for days on end, if I let it!

Big pythons and annacondas are so cool and not scary. Bees are....

Few years ago, my friend and I caught 3 bees in a park using a plastic bag, and then transfered them to a glass jar.

Did you get stung?
 
  • #31
no. I think the bees didn't even know we were catching them. Bees aren't that scary as long as they don't stay on your skin. Even if they stay on your skin, just remain calm, wait for a sting or wait until they fly away.

Because we have a lot of countryside we have a lot of bees. At school on Thursday some boys kicked a football into a bee hive and this dropped onto our playing field and we were not allowed to go near it. They were so cross. Id of liked to of seen you try to catch them!!!

Probabaly I'd become a bee hive if I tried to catch them. :wink:

You mean you haven't made friends with the monsters under your bed yet?!? They're really interesting, if you get to know 'em.

How is that supposed to help a melisaphobic?

Please remember, KL Kam, a "phobia" is an irrational fear. I can't reason my way out of a phobia of bees (melisaphobia).

bees suck. I'm allergic to them, but I face my fear with a tennis racket. (Great bee swatter)

You think a regular bee is rough, you ever seen a Bumble Bore?

I can't think of much of anything I'd say I'm scared of. Even if I fail or lose or get injured, I learn from that expieriance and am better for having it.

I'd say my fear would be being confined in any way shape or form.

Well I know. In fact, I'm scared of spiders which are large, colourful and can walk very fast. I can ignore them if I'm 100% sure they would stay still for the rest of the day.

I remember when I was five years old, I was afraid of the band Kiss... and also the rock band on the Muppets.

You obviously haven't watched "Monsters Inc" carefully enough. Monsters are in fact much more scared of us than we are of them. :wink:

No kidding. They'll attack you for no good reason, and they are FAST! Plus, they're the ugliest little beasts I know of. *shudders in revulsion*

You say there can't be a 4-inch man-eating monster? Ha! I've seen a 3-foot girl eating salmon.
