and I quote: "apparently"

that is what you said certainly, as the quote displays.

it only appears to be so but you're not certainly enough not to use the word "apparently" better to flame decisively: "certainly, you're not afraid of making cliches" or "how dare you make such a cliche"

The stuff of nightmares? Cancer is -nothing- compared to Betrayal. Poverty can be fun at times, but there's no spin to be put on watching a loved one die helplessly before your eyes. A short life is vastly preferable to one of unending tragedy. Being attacked by a pack of wild dogs would be pretty awful, too.

Anxiety scares me, when it's my own (I try to avoid that state) or to be exposed to anothers.

losing control
when they ask how you feeling
you tell em you feeling like something important died screaming
you tell em you feeling like something even more important arrived breathing
something you should probably try feeding

NO FEAR!!!!!

Well since Ive had the bottom three on a couple of occasions
and lived thru them I dont sweat it....

anybody that lives in fear of anything has phobia issues and
need to confront thier fears head on..... not sit around and fret
about them.

There are days when I would say NO FEAR as well, but then it all goes back to how a loving heart is A Hostage To Fortune.

A bloke in leather pants and traffic cones for tits dancing to dubstep. Fortunately, that will never happen.
