  • On public transport I often worry that there will be some psychopath with a pair of scissors and he cuts off my hair :O
  • When I'm in the shower and I'm washing my face (so my eyes are closed) I worry that when I open my eyes again there will be somebody standing on the other side of the glass.
  • Discovering no money in my bank account whatsoever. [however, as a student, it turns out this isn't so irrational afterall!]
  • A new law being laid down which proclaims everyone must be married by the age of 25.
  • A spider successfully breeds with a bluebottle and so then makes a flying spider which buzzes loudly. If this then mated with a millipede I think I'd have to live in quarantine.
  • My eyelashes falling out.
  • Dying when I'm not wearing matching underwear, I worry that the Mortician will judge me.
  • Waking up to a frictionless world.
  • The cancellation of Heroes or Lost right now.
  • My nails just stop growing so when they break that's it, they're like that forever. I think I'd get nail implants...I assume they exist...everything else does.
  • My stiletto heels getting stuck between the cobbles on Market Street
  • An alien invasion of Earth. Even if the aliens were amiable creatures with lots to teach us etc. I still don't feel comfortable with it.
  • The Tories get into Downing Street. Though this is not completely irrational. Yuck.
  • A world broccoli shortage.
  • Crocodiles learn how to walk on two legs.
  • Being shut in a room packed full of fluttering moths.
  • Forgetting how to read.
  • The fundamental laws that govern our universe change suddenly. I don't want to have to relearn it all. But if this did happen all of matter would probably be ripped apart so I don't think that relearning formulae would be a huge problem.
  • The government imposes a maximum quota for hours of sleep per day.
  • Getting really really fat overnight.
  • My hair going grey overnight.
  • That my dead Paternal Grandparents are ghosts and know exactly what I've been doing since they died...
