Phobias

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Interesting article in the TORYGRAPH on Friday about some weird and wonderful phobias, from an article in the NEW SCIENTIST.
    HIPPOPTOMONSTROUSESQUIPPEDALIOPHOBIA - Fear of long words ! (The short version is SESQUIPPEDALIOPHOBIA)
    ZEMMIPHOBIA - Fear of the Great Mole Rat.
    ALEKTOROPHOBIA - Fear of chickens.
    LUTRAPHOBIA - Fear of Otters.
    PENTHERAPHOBIA - Fear of your Mother in Law (Think most of us have had this one).
    PTERONOPHOBIA - Fear of being tickle with feathers.

    Now the human mind is a weird thing, that contains all our hopes, fears, etc, but fear of the Great Mole Rat - must be a very localised phobia?
    I used to suffer from CRUSHERPHOBIA in my youth - fear of being nicked by the Patrol for being in a confused state in various places around the globe. NORTHEATERPHOBIA - self-explanatory, usually a result of an attack of CRUSHERPHOBIA.
    Anyone else admit to having a phobia ??
     
  2. DHOBAPHOBIA - Fear of water that manifests by avoiding showering.
    DHOBAPHOBIA BY PROXY - Fear of watching others use water for any purpose (common among Submarine Chief Tiffs)

    Seem to be quite a few people around me who have got over their workaphobia only to suffer from wontachieveanythingincaseitcostsmoneyaphobia
     
  4. No. Because you will all take the piss out of me.
     
  5. I'm a Thalassophobic (God knows why I'm joining the Navy!!) ... or well more like whats in them than the actual things themselves ... so more specifically I'd probably be a Selachophobic. Makes me feel sick thinking about it. Errr ...
     
  6. I have Arithmophobia.
    Its not nice, and old fear of my primary school maths teacher haha.
     
  7. A German psychiatrist believes that many of the millions who are off work sick may be more than just lazy. They may be suffering from Laborophobia: the fear of work.

    I know many who suffer from this terrible disgusting disease. They all gather at the meeting house called SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS DEPARTMENT. If you suffer from Laborphobia pop along a warm welcome will be given to all. We also operate a free taxi service for those without transport.
