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
By this axe I rule

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.
