Here are a list of funny phobias and real life fears. Tell us if you think these phobias are made up or real.

Almost everyone is afraid of something. A lot of people suffer from arachnophobia (fear of spiders), aviophobia (fear of flying) and taphephobia (fear of being buried alive). Then there are some rare phobias that only one in a million people share. Check out these phobias and decide for yourself if any of 'em are made up.

  • Trichopathophobia - Fear of hair.
  • Peladophobia - Fear of bald people.
  • Melophobia - Fear of music.
  • Lachanophobia - Fear of vegetables.
  • Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia - Fear of long words (can you even pronounce that word?)
  • Arachibutyrophobia - Fear of peanut butter getting stuck to the roof of your mouth.
  • Unatractiphobia - Fear of ugly people.
  • Dromophobia - Fear of crossing the road.
  • Pogonophobia - Fear of beards.
  • Linonophobia - Fear of string.

1 I think some of those are pretty weird but I believe some of them.

1 All of these phobias are real, except for the fear of ugly people. It's real name is cacophobia and it's fear of ugliness, not ugly people, just uglyness in general.

What do you think? Are all these phobias really true or did we make some of 'em up? Many phobias have been around for years but new ones have formed in recent years as technology advances. Phobias can seriously affect people but they can be cured. Take our poll and see what others think or your thoughts.

Last week I wrote about Murder or Suicide? Ronald Opus jumped off a building with the intention of committing suicide but was killed when a gun went off and the bullet hit him. The story was made up but it's been around for a long time. Nothing about it was true, although it does make you think for a second. Here's what everyone voted:

Wow... Boy have I grown. To anybody reading this, whether you a be a past friend or current user, I really hope you're well. I've changed a lot since I've been here. Since I've left. I want you guys, my old friends (should you be reading this), to know a few things. No, I probably won't be back. Not for a very very long time. Yes, I miss you all. So very much. As said, I truely hope you're all still well and happy. And I want you to know I'm happy too. After I left this site, I really found myself, as cheesy as it may sound. But I'm happier now. Not completely happy, but I'm happier. And now, something that everyone could hear. Something that everyone should hear. I hope you all have a great life, for life is a gift we are given so very little of. Use it as you will, but be wise with it. Let nobody else deprive you because of the color of your skin, the thoughts on your mind, or the love in your heart. You're all so very beautiful and smart, in you're own grand way. You deserve this gift you've been given. Each and everyone of you. If you ever think that no one seems to care, always remember that even if you don't know me and I don't know you, I care. I care so very very much. I'll see you another time KW. My stay has been the most grand. Thank you all so much.
