irrational fears?



We all have irrational fears growing up...
I had/have quite a few that I can recall..

One of those fears took a sharp turn toward rational yesterday

i love bridges since i was a little girl...they're so grand and majestic...but it always seemed strange to me how just a few metal poles and cement can hold up so many cars and trucks...

I totally have a fear of bridges - and tunnels - I hold my breath when I go over them! So if its a long bridge or there is traffic.....watch out!!

Hi. My name is Eugene Gershin. I'd like to welcome you to Obadiah Shoher's blog, Samson Blinded: A Machiavellian Perspective on the Middle East Conflict.

Obadiah is a pen name of a politician. He writes extremely controversial articles about Israel, the Middle East politics, and terrorism.

Obadiah advocates political rationalism instead of moralizing. He is economic liberal and political conservative.

Google refused advertising our site and Amazon deleted reviews of Obadiah's book. Nevertheless, Obadiah’s is the largest Jewish personal blog, read by more than 100,000 people monthly. 210,000 people from 81 countries downloaded Obadiah’s book. The blog was voted the best overall in People’s Choice: Jewish and Israeli blogs Awards, received Webby Honoree and other awards.

Please help us spread Obadiah's message, and mention the blog in one of your posts, or link to us. We would greatly appreciate your comments at www.samsonblinded.org/blog



Best wishes,

Eugene Gershin

My husband took this opportunity to try to convince me that his is why he needs a Hummer. Ha!

Actually, we were both really saddened for the families and it was quite a reminder of how random and fragile life really is.

David - Clearly you've never seen the promotional video for the Hummer where it rises majestically from the river, climbing piles of debris at a 35 degree angle......

i haven't watched TV in a while, but i saw this on the news... terrifying...

and if you want to get scared, just ride with my dad at the wheel... his driving skills and comments are enough to make almost anyone stay home... he'll mention these great ideas on how terrorists can destroy various structures while we're driving thtorgh them... thrilling...

it's frightening... but the event didnt make it one bit more rational that it was before.
it aint the first bridge on earth to collapse, an at the same time, there are millions and millions of bridges that stand today... and wont be falling in your or your childrens' lifetimes.

Eek. I've never loved bridges myself, but never really had an "irrational fear" about them. Maybe now I will...

Dreamer -- Sounds almost like my dad... he's into chazzanus... one day we're driving through the mountains in a downpour, visibility zero, and he's humming "Me bamayim, umi bo'aish...." brrrrr
