I should be hopping on a flight to New York around the time this goes live on the site. Flying has never scared me; fear_of_flying.jpgsnakes, spiders and rodents don't really bother me either. Instead, there's one thing that will send shivers of fear down my spine faster than anything.

I get frightened every time I close an important document in Word and it asks me if I want to save my changes when I could swear I didn't make any changes.

What's your worst fear?

That when I go to save an important document in Word, the message will read "None of this is worth saving."

Microsoft Windows on a plane! Enough is enough! I have had it with these m*f*king Windows on this m*f*king plane!

Be safe. Fly with Linux.

Microsoft Windows on a plane! Enough is enough! I have had it with these m*f*king Windows on this m*f*king plane!

Now THAT's a truly scary thought! Imagine having to CTRL-ALT-DELETE a plane in midflight...

I don't fear Word, I despise it. I disable every auto function I can find and the damn thing still makes changes in my documents. I use it only because I must. And Outlook at work has eaten more important emails than I can count. Don't get me started. I'll stick with my Mac.

My worst fear? Microsoft buys Apple.

Doesn't microsoft(appropriately named) already own apple? LOL

Next time this happens cancel and do a "Save As" then you're covered.

My worst fear? Never figuring out what exactly it is I am suppose to accomplished in this life.

Not really afraid of much, like phobia-type fear. Just normal fears.

These days, not much that I'm aware of.

And when I find something, I face it. Amazing how getting over a fear of being yourself can be empowering...
