The topic is self-explanatory; what makes your spine chill when you think of it?
For me, it's Stephen King's "The Shining"; both the psychological horror of the book, which is one of the best piees of literature I've ever read, and the spooky imagery of the film.

Well death or death of a loved one always gets me, but just noticing your about to gett in severe trouble always makes my body temp rise INSTANTLY. I mean INSTANTY.
What makes my body temp drop instantly, oi... scratching a chalkboard or hearing it. Even now as i pretend to hear it. Grrr.

The air conditioner- its about 33oC outside so the a/c is on but coz it's right behind me I'm getting a chill down my spine

Ummmmm spooky things on TV like those doco's on aliens and how people send in footage of strange lights in the sky that sorta thing (that includes ghost stories)

The ring- what a seriously freaky movie, although I had to try and convince my friend that no girl that looks like cousin it will come out of the TV and basically eat him

well, in horor movies, when one looks at a mirror or water and sees the reflection of some creppy thing, and then he/she turns around and theres nothing. thats a classic, and kinda overly used nowadays, but still...


btw-

That means your fear fear itself, which is a vicous cycle that boggles the mind.

it simply means you take the advice "there is nothing to fear but fear itself" very strictly, and as feral said, it IS a viscious cycle thats has boggled the mind for centuries. and since you got the thought in my brain im going to go lay down and cry because my head hurts.

actually it's quite simple, i was talking about the fact that i would get afraid if ever i feared anything, as i do not fear anything (i know, now i'm sounding pompus). quite frankly, fear is a state of mind, and quite frankly, you are able to defeat it quite easily. therefore, if it were to come back, i'd wonder why, how and furthermore, i would be afraid.

i know it's a viscious cycle, it's like asking someone who knows everything 'what the one question you cannot answer,' it cannot be answered by someone who knows everything.

but quite frankly, i believe that there is nothing to fear but fear itself. i have never gotten vertigo in my life (and i've rock climbed to great hights), i used to be afraid of spiders until i realised how small they were, and things like ebars and lion, well, if ever confronted, i'd just act normally, as if they weren't there and slowly walk off. if that doesn't work, i'd take out my knife and get ready, but remeber to have nerves of steel, a steady hand is what wins the battle.

if you guys don't buy that, then Al is right, i'm afraid of photos.

the fact that Lucasarts is working on MI5
when Grim Fandango is Obviously the better game.:D

While Grim Fandango is undoubtedly superior to EMI, GF is a completely standalone game and a sequel would destroy it's legacy. Ron Gilbert always wanted MI to be a series, though.

I would have to say birdeating spiders. They look like turantulas, but they're 8 inches. *Shudders*. I have iraqnaphobia, in case you were wondering.

I normally wouldn't point out spelling erors, but this one is too good to miss...iraqnaphobia? Fear of Iraq? You sure you don't mean arachnaphobia, fear of spiders? Because, you know, both are worthy phobias ;)

I didn't know how to spell it so I put "iraq" as a wild guess. ;)

drinking and smoking are bad for you..!

*gives faith a 53 hour speech about how smoking and drinking is bad*

...and so, in conclusion, in spite of what ancient mayan civilizations believed, smoking and drinking really IS bad for you!

*rises from the ground after hitting the wall*

now, Niko, what was that about the ancient Mayan civilization?

NiKo

*rises up, wipes blood from nose*

well, the ancient mayan civilizations believed that smoking will bring them closer to 'Toba-Ko', the cigarette God, so they attended rituals in which they smoked untill their lungs came shooting out their arses. then they would take those lungs and sacrifice them to Toba-Ko, and in return, he gave them candy...!

At least I'd like to think so
