    No - not annoying - FUN!

    Adrenaline junkies go jumping out of aeroplanes or from the top of skyscrapers to get the same response! They're addicted to feeling it, just like we're addicted to...

    It's true. Hi Gypsy,

    We can't cocoon ourselves and others from risk.

    By using the risk argument to reinforce the excuse for not driving it just builds a home for the phobia. Not just any home...

    Phobias, on their best day, are proper irrational fears. If you have a phobia of baked beans, or a phobia of clowns, or a phobia of curtains - that's a proper phobia. A phobia with balls.

    It can be, but being sandwiched by two working farms can be less peaceful than you'd think. I quite like being close to nature though.

    Hi and welcome.

    You're not alone. Most of the people here have been through it in one form or another.

    If I can get mobile tyre service where I am I'm sure that a little place like California will have it.

    It's like middle-of-nowhere here. The nearest cow is about 4 feet from me as I type this
