yea that's funny but the worst thing to happen on a ferris wheel is that on the first loop ur ex boyfriend re-asks u out when you have just gotten over him and moved onto someone else..... it can become a very long trip... especially after saying no and having no 1 else in the ferris wheel with u....:s
I have a fear of heights, too, but it only kicks in on unstable ground. I can be on top of a skyscraper without problems, even standing on a glass floor and looking down, but as soon as I climb a ladder.. Might be the same for the OP and the feeling of being unstable on a ferris wheel caused it. but on the other hand, my fear is just a bad feeling of "I have to get down NOW", not screeming and crying, so it may still be fake
Well that sounds fun! Taking advantage of others' fears is just delightful. I bet I could get anything I want out of people with threats of butterflies, spiders, and midgets. Luckily, I don't have any real phobias to exploit. Oh, except that one of guys with colorful pictures. *Gasp* *Faint*
How do you get to be 45 and not discover that you fear heights?
#36 - True, but then it wouldn't be a true "fear of heights". More like... fear of ferris wheels, as other posters described below. Sufferers of actual acrophobia usually can't even climb a ladder without at least a little anxiety. But, I guess I can't fault the OP for it. Whether he described it improperly, doesn't know, or has simply never been higher than 10 feet in the air his whole life. The symptoms sure do sound like a phobia though. #50-something: Good point, could be that.
