  1. Wow, the weird fears are weird.  First time hearing most of those.  I still don’t know what my fear is.  I don’t think it’s anything material or thing.  If I had to name something it would be the Fear of failure, not amounting to anything worthwhile.

  2. Wow! I did not know about the problem Roger Moore had with guns. My biggest fear though is –  Heights because I’m afraid of falling
