One strange phobia I have is the inability to jump off things like swimming pool sides. I'm not afraid of heights & can swim so it must be something about the "edge".
I think cattle & sheep have the same fear, which is why cattle grids work, so maybe I've a form of mad cow disease!
It really caused a problem when I went for marine survival training and had to go in with lifejacket on from the 5m board. Hopefully in a real emergency with my backside on fire I'd have jumped anyway!!!
