    Needles, large spiders, uncommon insects (slugs, caterpillars, maggots, ones you don't see everyday), and talking about or describing gore. Actually looking at gore, not so much.

    Lucked out!

    The idea of large bands of desperate displaced unprepared refugees, from say a large Tsunami, wandering up to my house in the hills. Glad I did not come face to face with it this weekend.

    Hawaii, not a question of if, but when. Why I EDC gear to work.

    Freaking velociraptors, man. I saw Jurassic Park for the first time when I was probably 5 or 6 and I swear to god those things ruined my childhood.

    See, I'm a biologist, yes? I'm a medic since I was 19 :)censored: draft). And I've hunted since I was 16. I've dissected dozens of animals, seen hundreds of wounds, and dressed a lot of game.
    One would think, nothing could gross me out. Wrong.

    As tasty as they are when prepared, I simply hate chicken. Their smell, their look, the feel of their feathers. I have a hard time entering the coop to collect eggs. And I certainly can't pluck a chicken, I'd have to throw up.

    Now, plucking a DOVE isn't a problem at all. Strange, uh?

    Spiders man they just freak me out, if I have too I can muster through an encounter with'em but EHHHH
    Heights always made me week in the knees too, but both of them are more on the line of fears.
    Soo... squeamish? Well when my wife was giving birth to our little boy, I held her while the doc gave her the epidural half way through it I about passed out and ever since then I get sick to my stomic when I have to deal with needles. Weird though since I have piercing and all of them I have done myself, and I have gave blood regularly since I was in high school

    What makes me squeamish? FAA medicals. I think having a root canal is less stressful than the annual visit to the AME...

    Snakes, I hate snakes. Slithery just typing it is difficult enough.

    The fastest I have ever run in my life was when a Water snake slithered up onto a rock I was fly fishing on and I didn't notice till it was basking I did a double take and double timed it up the small mountain like 50ft on a 50 degree hill.

    Only 2 things for me, the smell of burning or burnt human flesh and the smell of vomit. If you've never smelled burning flesh, just light some hair on fire and amplify that about 100 times. It is horrible. And yes, I have been in situations where people have been burned and seen it first hand.

    Nutnfancy's videos about first aid. No kidding. In general, stories/vidoes/pictures about medical trauma make me squeamish.

    Blood and confined spaces. I stopped hunting years ago because of the former. I'd do it if I needed to survive, but I wouldn't like it.
