I see a spider, I'm stomping the shit out of it. And if I see a moth I'm chasing after it with a rediculously big hammer and unneccesary ammounts of collateral damage.

I'm a massive wuss.

I found a grub last week in the garden. Whenever I see a spider or something creepy crawley I run away, point and start speaking gibberish until someone sorts it out :)

I like spiders, they keep away the flies. The only things i kill are small flying things and then only if the are making too much noise

There is no name for the fear of sharks (as in like, no sharkophobia) or whatever, because it's a rational fear

Unless it's as severe as to be a fear of pictures of sharks, then it's irrational. My dad was telling me how he once treated someone with a fear of birds that extended to outlines and even thinking about them.

Well yeah, but just a general fear that one day when you're swimming in the sea a shark might eat you just means you've seen Jaws too many times. Unless you live in Australia where it's really quite reasonable.

Would the irrational one have a name though? Like 'sharko-picto-phobia' or some such thing.

Pictoselachiphoba? Imagoselachiphobia?

A quick google claims selachophobia is the irrational fear of sharks.
