OMG a Bolshevik! Get away!

The other day one of my coworkers mentioned that she used to have an acute fear of wheelchairs to the point where she would almost pass out if she saw one (yeah, I know). So, hard-working research employee that I am, I wanted to find out if this curious condition had a name. I came across an incredibly comprehensive list of phobias compiled by a guy who apparently has even more time on his hands than me. It would seem that people are afraid of pretty much everything in the world, ever (except wheelchairs). I don't know if these are all for real but this doesn't seem like a funny website. Allow me to share some of my favorite phobias with you:

- fear of poetry- Metrophobia

- fear of Bolsheviks - Bolshephobia

- fear of sitting down- Kathisophobia

- fear of phobias- Phobophobia

- fear of urine - Urophobia

- fear of Chins- Geniophobia

- fear of Greek terms- Hellenologophobia

And my very favorite: fear of long words - Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia. Excuse me but who was the asshole psychologist who decided it would be a good idea to name a phobia of long words the longest word ever? That's just mean.


OMG a Bolshevik!
