Phobias Make This World a Funny Place To Be

Lately, I have noticed that people, like friends of mine, were discussing about things that scare them, thing's they are afraid of. Of course, my friends are still sane-- their fears still rational. However, a certain status comment on the wall of a friend of mine in facebook stated this.

"Anatidaephobia: The fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you."

What???!
hahaha...so this inspired me to do some search for the list of phobias that i find particulary interesting...never heard before and just plainly hilarious (and ridiculous)...
But before that, let's give some credit to what that word means.

A phobia (from the Greek: φόβος,phóbos, meaning "fear" or "morbid fear")
is an irrational, intense and persistent fear of certain situations, activities, things, animals, or people. The main symptom of this disorder is the excessive and unreasonable desire to avoid the feared stimulus. When the fear is beyond one's control, and if the fear is interfering with daily life, then a diagnosis under one of the anxiety disorders can be made.
