Explicit language warning: this man filmed himself facing his fear of heights by BASE jumping tandem off the Perrine Bridge. Again, there is a lot of cursing in this video. But man if this guy isn't exactly how the average person would feel doing this the first time.
Lots of people have fears. I know several people that won't walk across the Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls because they are afraid of heights. Other people have no issues with heights but are afraid of spiders, or sharks, etc. I know several people that are afraid of clowns. Doctors and Scientists say a fear of clowns is called coulrophobia.
We all have fears. Some people are scared of spiders. Others are afraid of heights. Others are afraid of puppies (I am sure there are those of you out there). While some fears are rational and others not, the truth is that most of our fears are extremely misplaced. In fact you should be more afraid of falling coconuts than sharks!
It is no secret that I am not a fan of spiders. They can be small or gigantic, it doesn't matter, they give me the heebie jeebies! Apparently, I can be cured of my fear of spiders. I am going to call bull on this study! Would you ever go into a cage with a bunch of hungry lions? Likewise, I will never be okay with spiders.
