  1. I’m going to have to bookmark this post–it’s a valuable reference tool when you live in a household of sf/f fans.

    Still cracking up–these are priceless!

  2. This had me laughing away. How about ‘Gateaphobia’…the fear of being sucked from planet to planet via a wormhole?…or is that close to #5?

    Definately in my ‘Quality Post’ list.

  3. What about “robophobia” from Dr. Who. You subconsciously imitate the body language of robots, who don’t have any. This, of course, turns you into a psychopathic killer.

  4. This is pure gold! I do have a problem with being a Forcebitionist – or is it that, when I put out my hand and stare intensely at an object, my husband simply takes pity and passes it over to me…?
