Weird Wednesday

So many of the blogs I read do a 'Wordless Wednesday'. So, just to be a little different, I thought I could go with a 'Weird Wednesday'. Here it is, the first one:

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia- Fear of long words

Mottephobia- Fear of moths (I have this!)

Pittakionophobia - Fear of stickers or labels (Got this one too...well, really, anything sticky. ***shivers***)

Optophobia- Fear of opening one's eyes (sounds like a democrat thing)


If you counted 24 hours a day, it would take 31,688 years to reach one trillion!

No piece of square dry paper can be folded more than 7 times in half!

Over 2500 left handed people a year are killed from using products made for right handed people!

The sentence "The quick brown fox jumps over a lazy dog." uses every letter of the alphabet!


  1. I fear ice sticking to my hands. Yech!

  2. Actually... I think the paper one has been Mythbusters, no?

    Thanks for a different Wednesday post :)

  3. I like it. I lol at the democrat/open eye comment you made. Ive tried the paper thing before and I couldnt do it. I think the first one about the fear of long words is something someone made up...I mean what sense is there that the word hippopotumus is in it? None..

    Your fear of sticky...does that mean you dont eat gummy bears or pancake syrup? Just curious.

  4. I love gummy bears! I don't like pancake syrup though. Not because it's sticky. Just because it's gross. I like jam on my pancakes! My problem with sticky is when it touches my skin. Since gummy bears aren't sticky until you put them in your mouth, I don't have to worry about that unless I'm playing with my food. Eww. LOL
