When i stand by hi-tension electric cables and i hear that typical noise something like bzzzzzzbzzzzbzzz). It's strange, 'cause cables are just 10 meters up my head, but i'm sort of impressed!

My friend's and I sometimes joke about that sound. If someone makes a joke and one person has to think about it for a minute we simulate that noise. lol Yes itis a creepy noise though. There is no denying that. :)

I can't stand to have people touch my ears... ! It just gives me the willies! Seriously... if somebody wanted to torture me... all they'd have to do is tie me down and touch my ears.

Those jarring, grating, scraping sounds, especially metallic, well they just raise my hackles and I want to run out of the room when I hear them. All the best!

I get creeped out, if anything overflows (like the sink), and I have to stick my hand down into the drain, wondering what I'm about to touch.

I have a scar on my knee that just freaks me out if I (or anyone else) touches it...If I kneel down and my pants are too tight on it I have to move or adjust my position immediately! Also, I cannot STAND for anyone to touch my belly button. It seriously makes me feel ill. I once had surgery that involved making an incision in my navel (thank god I was out!) and I was supposed to go to my doctor two weeks later to have the stitches removed. About five years later, I finally saw a small "string" protruding from my navel, so I carefully used a pair of tweezers to remvove it. (It was like that child's game, "Operation"!) Anyway, it was a bright blue stitch. I almost barfed as I felt it being pulled through my skin and out. Urgh, I feel queasy just thinking about that.

Great story. The stitches reminds me of a similar thing of mine. I hate people touching my elbows. I got in a car accident and my elbow went through the window. There was a big piece of glass stuck in it. They had to put me under heavy sedation to remove it since I was freaking out. They stitched it up but told me that there was still glass in it. I said no to more surgery and letit be. The stitches fell out themselves, but after a year the glass started to work its way to the surface. At first I thought it a scab but soon it became clear it wasn't. I took tweezers and out it came. ICK it was horrible. Didn't hurt though.

I vaccuum them up and have my boyfriend deal with the vaccuum bag. I can't stand to even look at them let alone get near enough to be rid of them nicely. If my boyfriend is home then I make him get them.... yuck

ME TOO! If I HAVE to deal with them myself, I'll put them under cups and wait until my boyfriend gets home. Or, I'll spray Lysol on them... they breathe through their skin.

When it comes to food things with holes in them. Like bones or even with English muffins the nooks and crannies can give me the willies. Something else that creeps me out are clowns. I hate them. They give me the creeps big time. I will go out of my way to avoid them.

I know what sound you mean. It isn't really nice at all. Sometimes it makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

Hey you reminded me of when we were meant to do potato printing in art class in school and I was off sick one week so I went into the next and my potato had sprouted roots and I freaked out because I had never seen them before and didn´t know potatoes did that, I refused to touch it!!!! I now don´t like them much but will touch them. My fear now is COCKROACHES - I can´t stand the things.

Socks...not my own.....I can't stand it if someone has a hole or if you can see dirt on them. I know silly but I can't stand it.
• Netherlands

I don't think it's silly. I can't stand to see people with dirty feet. You know like if they wear sandals or barefoot outside and you can see the dirt caked on.... uggh

What creeps me out, is when I have to hose out my basement, and giant black spiders come out of nowhere and crawl up the backs of my legs trying to save themselves from drowning! I gently spray them with the hose to get them off of me and then pick them up with a stick and put them somewhere else in the basement, I don't have the heart to kill them! By the way, be very careful with those potato root sprouts, they are highly poisonous and could harm or kill a child or pet! Break them off, wrap them up and put them down deep in your trash can so no animal can get to them, then wash your hands real good a couple of times, just to be sure!

They are poisonous? You can still eat the potato after you remove them I never heard they are poisonous. I always cut a generous amount of the potato off around them but that is because I can not stand to touch them or eating something that was close to them.... ugh

I hate it when people I do not know stand too close to me. Like I am in a line waiting and I can feel someone's breathe on my hair. I usually will turn aroundand tell them to back up but sometimes I am not in te moood and have to just deal with it.

I hate touching paper if my hands are cold, or sheets if my bare feet are cold. I also can't watch people touch paper or sheets if I'm cold, and I absolutely loathe the sound it makes if I'm cold! Weird no?
• Netherlands

I don't like to touch paper in general. I also hate the sound of people dragging their sandals on the cement. ugh
