Also you don't need to follow "news". Trust me, all crap, CNN, BBC, NPR, FOX, all of it, useless crap. Have not watched or listened or read any of it for 3 years now, and trust me, have not missed a thing. None of that matter whatever to your real life, it just screws with your head, just a branch of the entertainment industry, better to watch cartoons. Don't care who is president. Won't matter, all the same. If you get away from it, that becomes clear to you.



i like that attitude. I barely watch TV nowadays too, not because of that, but because i dedicate more time to the guitar. smile.gif

I'm afraid of clowns, mascots, store Santa's...pretty much anyone in a costume or mask where I can't identify them. It's not that I'm scared of them, I just feel extremely uncomfortable around them. It's a little weird I know...but please keep GWAR and Slipnot the hell away from me!
p.s. KISS is ok; I don't mind makeup!

As a parent I don't fear my child developing beyond (I hope she does) or even rejecting me I do however fear the possibility that I might out live her. I've a number of friends who have had their own children die young - either from illness or accident - and been devastated by it. My wife shares the same fear - every night she will stand in my daughter's bedroom when our girl is asleep just to listen to hear her breathing.

Having said that it's not a fear I spend much time on. It's just there as a dark possibility. For me I think it's more important that I just learn to live with rather then being consumed by it. I certainly don't want to over-protect my little girl as she needs to live and experience her life (if you see what I mean).

Personally I'm not 100% rational and indeed never will be - the downside of this is I have irrational fears; the upside is I have moments of irrational joy. All in all, for me, I kind of like it that way.

Cheers,
Tony

I think all fears should either be confronted if they can be, or not dwelled on.

Oh but make no mistake, we are afraid. Especially of your alien moderating powers! biggrin.gif

Spiders scare me. I kill them in an instant if they are too big. If they are small I will pick them up (in a piece of toilet paper) and toss them out doors, alive. But big ones... I guess it's just a reaction, kill or get killed.
This fear of course excludes spiderusalem.. to a point. tongue.gif

Also heights, I hate em.



ya im freaked by spiders to..we get alot of black ones in my house unsure.gif i hate it!!!

I was fine with spiders until one day about five years ago I had a gigantic garden spider drop out of a tree. Down my shirt. My shirt was tucked in. Ever since then I have hated spiders, and will kill any that I see. mad.gif

Thats why I didn't put it on the list. Its a no brainer, fear of having a child die is the worst kind I can imagine. I'm sure I speak for most everyone here.

ah jeez your right! I think its because when I think of zombies, it registers in my mind as "awesome". as terrible as this sounds, I half hope for a zombie outbreak somewhere. Its like a lethal game of tag. Surviving, killing zombies, running, shooting, fun. I read too much of that comic "Walking Dead"

There would definitely be one good thing about a zombie apocalypse. I believe that it would take a world overrun by the undead for human beings to truly start living.

Good advice Pavel...but sometimes s**t happens!
My girlfriend became pregnant at a horrible time, I had no money, wasn't finished college, and I did not want to have any children.
Was I ready to start a family? No
Did I step up and take care of my responsibilites? Yes
Was it hard working full time, going to school, finding a house, and starting a family all at the same time? Hell Yes!

Do I regret it?
NEVER, best thing that ever happened to me. biggrin.gif


You know, she sure didn't get pregnant accidently or by herself wink.gif So it's definitely your "fault" if we may call it that way.

You CAN plan a lot of things smile.gif

I have a fear of my children rejecting me because that would be because something turned really bad in their life (or mine) to make them push away the people that love them.
I agree that they have to experience things and live their own life. That's what shapes them to something good. Still it is frustrating to see them repeat the exact same mistakes I did myself. They have yet to come up with something I didn't do (well, I truly hope they aren't that inventive). It just feels stupid to watch them go throught it.

And as fkalich said, throw out your TV. The stuff they push out for entertainment is pure garbage. I rarely watch anything except documentarys on TV for the last years and I never ever watch the news.

I lied a bit there. I watch Simpsons for entertainment and AFV for the news clips coverage. Now that's quality TV for you.

I don't think that cutting children off completely from things like TV is such a great idea. My aunt did that with her children, now everywhere they go all they want to do is watch the "mysterious TV." I do agree that MOST of the things that networks push through their stations is garbage. Perhaps you could just let them watch, but moderate what they watch? All this reality TV bull is just a big joke. It's just people watching something they would like to do... Well then go do it!

Bah, news these days is just the anchors opinions. I don't think that there is an unbiased news channel anywhere on TV(mainstream networks at least) or the internet! I do believe that this is a huge problem in the USA right now. Ignorant people listening to other people's opinions just creates more of a bias, which ultimately leads to disagreement. I just want someone to tell me straight facts for a change. I will make up my own mind, I don't need your help!

This is true, but life is unpredictable, especially as you get older and into more serious relationships. I used to think that I could plan and control everything, but I have learned that things can change in the blink of an eye, and even the smartest people have temporary lapses in judgment from time to time.
It is good to make plans and stick to them, but when life throws you a curve ball, you had better be able to
handle it, or else you are in trouble.

Man, I feel really old right now sad.gif

No, ofc not. I'm exaggerating a bit, and I was mostly talking about myself and how I use the TV. Totally lost the interest in broadcasted TV. The kids watch it but not that much. Usually it's just on, contributing to the general background noise smile.gif
