What do you fear the most ?

Posted 24 January 2018 - 05:07 PM

What do you fear the most ?

For me its getting old...

in 2010 when I joined dreamincode I had two daughters, one in primary school and one in nursery, I looked like this.

Now its 2018 and I will be 50 this year. Yes freaking 50... I now have two daughters in high school although one has just started high school... and I now look like this..

Posted Image

Ok no grey hair yet, no bald spot but I know its coming.... Why do I know because...

Most of my high school friends are completely grey or even white haired now, thats if they have hair at all..!!

Met up with an old high school bud last week, we used to go fishing and played Rugby and Soccer for the School... He said "Jesus, snoopy, Im only two months older than you and I look like your f**king Dad !"

I was laughing but also pretty shocked here was a guy, a real hardman tall Blonde wall of muscle that could run through any backline and now he looks like Santa Claus I kid you not !

See inside my mind Im still 16 and fit and can kick a Rugby ball straight as a die half the length of the field between the posts.

I guess thats a male thing however.... boys never really grow up..

But all my Grandparents died in their 90's which means I have only have 40 odd years left to live... some of you might say so what ?? Thats a long time but really its not.... It feels like 49 years have just zoomed by and I know they will zoom by again...

Ughh really not looking forward to my 50th birthday party at all...

My Daughters are killing themselves laughing... They know how I feel about getting old...

I am however deeply afraid of getting old as all my grandparents although long lived, lost their minds to dementia and didn't know who they were, or recognised any of their loved ones were at the end..

So what are you most afraid of...??

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 3

There are only two things in this world that scare me and one is nuclear war. The other....

"Carnies. Circus folk. Nomads, you know. Smell like cabbage. Small hands."

You knew someone was going to say it at some point. ;)

Hmm I wrote this poem when I was 15.

Quote

It was August the world to us
like a Mushroom cloud on the horizon.
Heat seared their living flesh,
light took their seeing eyes.
Bodies broken on the ground,
asleep, deaf, dumb and blind.

Poppies and white crosses in their heads,
Mushrooms in mine.
We were picking mushrooms through the fields,
in the summertime.


I remember the cold war fear very well...
As for the other stuff... :/

For me its getting old...


Hm. Well, first of all, there is an alternative but I find that most people are not keen to exercise it. So I'm betting you're planning on getting old. Good, I recommend it. I know very few old people who regret getting that way.

So if you're planning on getting old, and you say you're afraid of it, then what is this fear, and what's it trying to tell you?

I thought I had made that clear Jon, but I will try again... I'm not afraid of dying never have been, dying is just a part of life.

All my grandparents were alive into their 90's, all my aunties and uncles are still alive and my parents of course are still alive my dad will be 80 this year for example.

Conversely my wife never knew her grandparents all died of heart attacks and strokes before she was born or just shortly after she only has a few aunties and uncles left alive.. again heart attacks and strokes her dads brother died of a a stroke but lived for years after his first one trapped inside his body he could only murmur incoherently and broke into tears constantly at his frustration on his failure to communicate, her mother died of a series of strokes a few years ago her dad had a heart attack but is still alive, but she knows its only a matter of time before he has another heart attack and dies and she is rightly afraid of this and knows in her heart of hearts that she will too die of a heart disease or worse a series of debilitating strokes, these things are genetic..

My fear on the other hand is dementia slowly being trapped inside your own mind not knowing who you are or who the people who visit you are.. it must really bite...

Anyone who says they are not afraid of shit like that, is plainly not human...

Aww dude,

I love you too...

See it takes a real man to say I love you to another man someone who is secure and not afraid to show love.

I tell my children I love them every day, conversely my Father has never told me he loves me or my brother, men from that generation are just emotionally stunted unfortunately.

I tell my best friend who is also my neighbour I love him, last Guy Fawkes night we were shooting each other with rockets totally drunk of course... We had the tin brazier filled with firewood at one o'clock in the morning sitting there drinking and he says im getting cold I bet you wouldn't take the lid off the brazier and put more wood in. Of course I say 'for a bottle of whiskey I would' he goes into his house and brings a bottle of whiskey out and im like challenge accepted so I lift off the lid pile the wood in and put the lid back on .... He is doubled in laughter and says 'You're mental I love you !"

I say I love you too mate but I love Whiskey more...

Next morning I wake up with a white burn mark across my hand Im like how the f*ck did that happen..!!

Brotherly love... you can't beat it....

Im afraid that pigs are one day gonna take over the world.

Its actually already happening. They, are, everywhere... they drive, they walk, have a job, they fly, they write, they steal, making weapons for mass destruction, they kill, they run, they are doing policeman jobs, think they are smart and intelligent beings. And if you do something to them, they have a law for animal abuse they write for themselves.

This is my pig: https://youtu.be/WoyIoElf1Ho
He is self learning AI, specialized in brute-force of anything, still in prototype, but its the evidence that he is gonna replace us all one day.

I have a mild fear of heights, but that's about it. My wife; however, has a fear of clowns. We have this one restaurant that has a clown that stands on the street corners and advertises for them. One day we were driving down the main street and she was talking about how she needs to start paying more attention to our surroundings and decides to look out her window only to see said clown standing 2 feet from her window. She started freaking out saying, "Nope, no we don't have to pay attention." While he danced around right next to her until our light turned green.

No. Specifically, I am deathly afraid of june bugs, lightening bugs, cockroaches, any type of other beetle, cicadas/locusts. Basically anything that isn't an ant or spider, which I surprising don't mind as much. I will not go out past dusk in summer.
