Weird I know, but I ain't goin' in the water after hearin' him scream and witnessin' that fish chomp down on his moob. Dang, I got me a bigger target.
Anywho, what I got a problem with is #1. So, without gettin' all political on ya folks, how can you have a fear of a known fact? That's my question. Almost 60% of the people who participated in the study have a fear of a known fact. That doesn't make sense to me. That's like bein' scared of the earth bein' round, or hidin' under the covers 'cause Santa isn't real, or bein' afraid the latest Kardashian scandal will get more news coverage than a hero who jumped into a burning building to save an entire family. Yea, that last one pisses ya off just like the corruption of government officials, but why worry about somethin' ya simply can not control? Surely you shouldn't fear it right? Now slimy, scaly fish that could bite the hell outta your nipples, that will scare ya straight!
