You don't want a rat cage (filled with rats) attached around your head?

Nothing scares me as long as I am in control. I can climb a 40ft ladder, no problem.

Dealing with the local bureacracy.

I feel sorry for people who don't have a hobby or interest to escape to.

Landing at LAX. Can you spot the plane on parallel approach?

Mmmmnope… where is it?

Look for the bright yellow Spirit Airlines Airbus on final to 25L. It is slightly above the 105 Freeway.

Still can’t find it?

Much easier to spot in this movie I shot a few seconds later.

When I worked out of Wilshire and Sepulveda you seldom could see the 405 from that perspective let alone the 105 and seldomer yet Palos Verdes. And the 405 looks like there was a bomb scare, where’s all the cars?

Oh, that. Ah, okay. Was almost inline with the highway that it just blended in.

I was looking for something more along the horizon.

Goggled KLAX, yeah, seems the rwys are pretty offset from each other. Spirit landed, and you had like half a rwy length to go yet!

Here's a song by an artist that I really like.

Schaffer the Darklord - Afraid of Everything (feat. B B Heart) Lyrics

 

Here comes the Cowardly Lion
Watch him crumble into dust and powder, he's frightened
Watch him talk a big game feigning he's the killing sort
And not some blankie clutching thumb sucker in a pillow fort
All locked doors, all windows barred
Every little last thing leaves him feel a little more scarred
Phobias unfocused, fears and ADD
Yeah, he's afraid of everything- I'm afraid he's me

When all of it's scary, when bravery's buried
Whistle past cemeteries, of daily dread we sing
When heart rates will race, when fears never faced
There is no place that's safe, you're afraid of everything

Yeah, I'm afraid everyday of everything and everyone
I used to be afraid of the dark now I'm afraid of the sun
I used to flee to basements, now I hide on my roof
I used to fear the unknown, now I'm terrified of the truth
Unruly groups of youths on the train
Scare me more than growing older did when I was their age
Afraid of day jobs, stray dogs and swarms of wasps
Brain clots, but not as much as of New York cops
Laser pointers and terrorists disappointing my parents
And I swear it's terrifying my appointments with therapists
Who wanna prescribe drugs that give me nightmares and shakes
I fear my mistakes heights, thugs, spiders and snakes
Fistfights, forests, floods, and fresh blood, missing flights and ERs, bedbugs, landlords, handguns, prisons, dentists, tetanus, epar, redrum
I'm scared I'm unstable from what I've done to my health
Knowing what I'm capable of- I'm afraid of myself

When all of it's scary, when bravery's buried
Whistle past cemeteries, of daily dread we sing
When heart rates will race, when fears never faced
There is no place that's safe, you're afraid of everything

I get the chills when unlisted digits hit up on my phone
I'm scared witless of both commitment and of being alone
Horrified of my ex-wife, mortified by my sex life
And of what I did the day before but more for the next night
Petrified of failure, but less than of success
Restless nights spent fretting about irrelevance and stress
Maybe shouldn't have abandoned, ran away from my band
Afraid of making fans mad, yeah I'm afraid of my fans!
Afraid that my colleges find me the clown in their company
And that the people I start fights with on the internet will come for me
Worried that this record's hated, no one will get it
And that I'll never have kids and that one day I'll regret it
so the time between gigs I spend alone in my bed
Afraid of all of it, covers pulled up over my head
And wait for shows to play because being a fool on stage
Is the only thing in this world of which I'm not afraid!

When all of it's scary, when bravery's buried
Whistle past cemeteries, of daily dread we sing
When heart rates will race, when fears never faced
There is no place that's safe, you're afraid of everything

Yeh, like when I listen to Evanescence, I feel like I’m in desperate need of therapy, so I gotta scrub my brain with a few Judas Priest albums afterward. LOL

Really only 2 things. Not bears, cougars, planes or heights.

1st) Having a child flip off the chairlift and land on their head while being left alone with my wife (a slow skiier) so I can selfishly go off and blast hard. First spotting their unconscious little body laying on the ground directly underneath me riding the chairlift as they are getting a cervical collar in preparation to be putting on a backboard.

2nd) Being stripped naked, hung upside down and having my testicals slowly and painfully squeezed flat into useless jelly.

Pretty much it right there.

I hate it in movies when someone cuts themselves badly while shaving.

I know that the violence (and blood) isn't real, but it's hard for me to watch.

I disliked my junior high and high school graduations so much that I skipped my junior college and university graduations.

Driving on the interstate with 18 wheelers and crazy drivers. I don’t fly anymore after working in aviation for 9 yrs.
Waking up while driving. Sharks, pit bulls, rottweilers, black widows, alligators, wild hogs, and crazy people. Wink

Pit bulls in general, but most scary are the taser-proof pit bulls: https://denver.cbslocal.com/2021/10/13/pit-bull-taser-dog-attack-fort-lupton/

Oh well, that's what guns are for.

 

Was the pit bull wearing rubberized booties? Maybe the pit bull had no connection to ground?  Maybe police have to tase hundreds of pit bulls daily, so after a few years, the breed becomes taser resistant? We have MRSA, so do we now have TRPB? Or maybe the pit bull has been tased a few times already, so it developed immunity?

Because I like big lights, my flashlightical views lean heavily toward both the extreme bright and the extreme heft.

It really scares me when the majority trust what the government and MSM tell them.
