    I get sweaty-palmed when heights are involved. Not flying, though. Go figure. But bridges (if I'm on foot; not so much in a car) and haystacks, rooftops, those things get to me. I don't know if it's a phobia, I can still bring myself to get up on top of the haystack. I just can't stand up.

    Even watching movies where people are hanging off something...like in Ace Ventura When Nature Calls, when the raccoon and Jim are hanging, my palms start to sweat and my heart races. I KNOW it's fake, I just can't help it.

    The you won't attend a 3D sense around sound mega screen movie flying through the Grand Canyon or the Alps with force feedback chairs that shake and vibrate huh? Flying never bothered me, did it for a few years, but I still hate damn spiders. :eek:

    The thing is...I LOVE to watch those movies!
    I would like to be a mountain climber, if I wasn't old, overweight and probably prone to edema.

    Mine is heights also, I can only get up on ladder to the 2nd step. I went to see the Grand Canyon and almost shook myself to death over the edge. Had to grab on to the railing and pull my self back. It was total terror!!!

    Being barefoot in the subway.

    I can't imagine a situation in which this might occur, but it does give me the creeps nonetheless.
