Any specific reason?

I don't know, I've just been like this for almost as long as I can remember. I probably got that phobia by age 6.

Speaking of phobias, I'm sort of phobic of needles and sharp objects, but only when one is facing directly to my eye. I don't mind getting my skin penetrated by a needle when I'm at the doctor's or handling sharp items, but when it's facing to my eye, I just flinch, start winking and get goosebumps. It feels weird. I don't know why!

edit: just realized i went off topic surprised

I just don't like insects and arachnids and I generally freak out around them if they get too close to me (how much I care and how close that is depends on the bug). It's not quite a phobia in most cases, but it can be close.


Do you like to eat seafood; specifically crustaceans, like lobsters or crabs?

EDIT:

in other words, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthropod This includes crustaceans, arachnids, insects, centepedes and millipedes- all these guys are related.

So the next time you eat a crab cake, a shrimp, or some lobster, its almost like eating the guts of a giant insect!

EDIT2 ok I know its off topic... I couldn't resist

I have no problem eating sea-faring arthropods. Saying that eating a crab is like eating a spider is the same as saying that eating a cow is like eating a human.

That makes sense to me, and a lot of people are probably the same way. It doesn't sound like it's a phobia, just a normal, rational discomfort.

Agreed. Its not much different than something as basic as pyrophobia, fulgurphobia, or freighttraintravelingat50mphphobia.

I first began experimenting with photography with an accordion type camera that my father once used, before I went on to buy my own camera. I used b&w film (not sure if colour film in that format existed) and I developed it and made prints myself. This was when I did my military service in the air force. The quality is questionable, but the funny thing about that is that with some of the pictures it can be tricky to date them by the look of them. It might not look like it, but I took all of the following pictures in 1992/93.

Norway, December 1992. But much of the gear in the Norwegian forces comes from WWII spoils or is disused US army stuff that found its way to Norway through NATO... Well, actually, it wasn't that bad in 1992 (But I still wonder if some of the teleprinters that I operated during my service were pre or post WWII. Siemens T63 I think the model was called, sounds like a cell phone now, but it was totally like something taken from a museum). The huge amounts of Mauser karabiner 98k that the Germans left here remained the backbone of the Home Guard until the 70's (just rebarrelled for NATO ammunition). My father have one from his service, which I'm still using for polar bear protection in Svalbard. It has the German eagle and swastika and all on it. And the year 1939 on it as well, IRC.

Right, or more precisely the Norwegian derivate AG3. The Cessna further down kind of gives it away as well. I don't think these were a common sight in Soviet either, with the exception of the Red Square in more recent history.

He was referring specifically to the first picture, so I left that out.
