It could be said that fear is one of our most useful and sensible
emotions. Not only does it prime our bodies to better react to danger,
but it also stops [most of] us from undertaking foolish,
life-endangering endeavors such as firing antique crossbows at the
police, riding a motorcycle, or crushing our own head in a vice
"because we wanted to see what it felt like".

Yes, when it comes to "staying alive for as long as possible", fear can
be a useful and practical tool. But as with other tools (right angle
reversible drills for instance), fear can also pollute our minds,
twisting what was once a useful and important bodily function into a
crippling (and often hilarious) ailment.

Here is a list of twenty of the most ridiculous and illogical phobias
