I didn't see it there, and it's not really fear, just a really strong aversion to it. leaving messages on an answering machine. You pretty much have to point a gun at my head to make me live a message, lol.

hey now... knowing jonathon personally.. i'd say he's done pretty fucking good getting over a lot of his shittier phobias. and i am totally crediting myself in helping him get better! hahahahahahahaha. anyway.. he didn't put his fear of aliens up there.. maybe there isn't a term for it? i don't know.. but just so everyone knows.. he's terrified of aliens. send him pics of aliens every chance you get. hahahaha

oh and gizmo: that pic you posted in the chan, scared the shit out of him. my sis came downstairs.. and we all went out for a smoke.. he was so paranoid that aliens were outside. ha-ha. oh, but we tried to convince him that aliens only take chinese kids cuz there are more of 'em and they taste better than us whities

Yep, I'll agree to that. Airplanes don't bother me in the slightest (duh), but standing on a ladder or something high gets me.
