What kind of radioactive, super mutant Chernobyl rat is that? 

Not, but seriously. What animals is that? I've been trying to figure it out for five minutes. 

Nutria aka Coypu. They are very aggressive and will mess you up. They are capable of killing humans.

I'm terrified of rodents. A big, aggressive rodent? If they ever reach my State I'm moving.

That my sleep paralysis demon will finally drag me to hell one of these nights. 

I would like to change my answer.

That SL decides to call it quits from one moment to another.

The gap in my life will be immeasurable, and I am not even exaggerating. SL is such a big part of my life that it will be extremely hard to replace that, should SL suddenly and irrevocably vanish.

Sure, there are OpenSim grids, and some of them have content which is suspiciously similar to some SL content (but they swear it's legit...) but it just won't be the same. Not even if current SL creators will find refuge on one of the OpenSim grids...

Whether my son will be okay once I am gone.

Having lost my mom less than a year ago: no he won't. But he'll survive. I don't know if you lost your parents or not, so I might be preaching to the choir, but a death of a parent is something you never recover from, you just keep going.

I lost my Daddy it will be 3 years in November.  And I can be alright for days at a time, and then something like a song, or even a meal can remind me of him & I'm off bawling.  I don't want him to have the heartache and regrets with me that I had with my parents.  I sure do a good job of being my parents tho sometimes.  :(

 

& Pink, I am very sorry for the loss of your mom.  *hugs*

Exactly. You summed it up perfectly. There will be days, weeks even when life is good and then out of nowhere you'll feel like your lost and your suffocating. :( I'm sorry for your loss of your dad, and thank you in return. *hugs* Stay strong.

Can't really think of a "big fear". Smaller things, like fear of hights, or those dreadfull spider creatures. But no life or death or apocalypse kinda stuff.

Non-existence.

This might come closest. Not in a fear of death kinda way, but more a regret of not being around to see what the future brings us.

Aside from a fear of drowning and a visceral dislike of large rodents (and a sense of anxious discomfort in small spaces), I don't really fear much. I plan to be around at least another 20 years and will do everything I can to stay healthy and avoid being hit by a bus, but I am not afraid of death itself.  It happens. Over the years, I have lost parents and other family and a growing number of friends.  My feeling, though, is that they are still alive as long as they are remembered.  For me, then, my own death does not provoke "fear" as much as disappointment that there will be a day when no one knows that I was ever here to make a difference.  It's a paradoxical feeling for an introvert, but there it is.

Prolonged suffering instead of a quick death is my biggest fear.  I'd like to die in my sleep.  I don't want to be kept alive and in pain.  

I've been thinking about future generations as well.  My generation was the first to have a pill for birth control and many of peers choose no kids.  The planet can hardly sustain the people it has now with jobs.  If we hadn't had the pill, the population could be double what it is.  I worry about the future also which I don't think I can do much about.

   Irrational people who, after a while of arguing, get the idea that you agree with them when you've thoroughly butchered every argument they've brought forth, and take that as you fully agreeing with their every opinion ever. I'm not sure if it's a masochistic rhetorical device or if they're just that stupid. Either way, it makes me pull back.

You couldn't agree with me more, Orwar.
