All of us at some point or the other have had phobias and uncanny panic alarms,so its not at all unusual when someone expresses their nightmare,but what I really found amusing is writing an open letter to the public and posting it on Craiglist regarding the same,well you think that is unusual and insane; well ,the letter for you.

I have a recurring dream about dying in a plane crash. In fact, I had one last night. It's happened so much I feel that I'm as much an expert in dying in plane crashes as any living being can be. I'm not superstitious. I'm not afraid to fly. But on the off-hand chance this dream turns prophetic, I feel qualified enough to make a request for anyone unfortunate enough to be on that plane with me...

I don't mind the idea of dying in a plane crash. In my dreams, I've done it a thousand times under a thousand different conditions. In most instances, death is instantaneous and painless. The thing that does bother me is what happens during that final plummet. Yes it's terrifying. But please, for the love of God, what's with the screaming? I understand you're frightened. I understand you don't want to die. I'm coming to terms with that myself as is every other passenger on that plane. But while I'm facing my imminent demise looking out the window in absolute silence and stunned horror, you're ruining the last few moments of everyone else's existence with your incessant shrill chimpanzee-like shrieking.

You're going to die. Of what possible use is a last-minute vocal exercise going to serve other than to completely annoy everyone around you and make a terrible situation even more unbearable? We are all in shock. Our sense of time slows and our senses become sharper. Now is not the time to be yelling. I'm not a religious man; but I don't mind if you pray. I might even hold your hand. But please keep it within an acceptable decibel level. If your God is real, he isn't hard of hearing, and he's most certainly aware that the plane is going down. He apparently has a plan, and he's not going to change his mind on the basis of how loud you beg him to alter it. Besides, you have an eternal life to look forward to. Look at me... I'm an atheist, and I'm keeping my mouth shut. Superman doesn't exist, so I'm hoping you're not calling for him. Anyone who can help you is already busy trying.

All I'm asking for a bit of reverence so we may die in dignity. If you treat it like a fucking roller coaster, I swear I'm going to punch you square in the kisser for depriving me of this... and I'm pretty sure I'll get away with it.

 Are you gripped with any similar phobia???Well do share with us!!!!

  1. Ha Ha..do u really get them recurring dreams? And rightly said, whats with the screaming?!
    The same holds true when you are stuck in an elevator or going up on one of those hair-raising, crazy fun-rides. Screaming helps no one & it just adds to the existing sound pollution..
    Well-penned :)

  2. Hehe...nice way of tackling something like death :P It's good that you don't get freaked out about recurring dreams...some people do think they are prophetic. I think they are what they are --- dreams. The only recurring dream I've had (and have written a post about) is about all my teeth falling out...one by one. It's really strange! :P

  3. Haha, recurring dreams are so much. You almost know what is going to happen next. It's weird in a way. I do have such a dream where I keep falling off the scooter that my dad is driving.

  4. dreams r dreams ....:))

  5. Dear Witty,

  6. Last night I was dreaming in a dream in a dream in a dream.....!

  7. Lol...I too have a terrifying phobia of dying!!
    Time to do some breathing exercises

  8. thanks... my first flight is 2morrow

    and I have fear of heights too...

    this was just the right time to read this post..


  9. i'm afraid of lightning. i'm afraid that the lightning would struck only me out of every one, and that too only if i look at it. i know its a big lol-er with the huge set of conditional constraints i have for my phobia, but still its a phobia.

  10. That was nice....just like the name of your blog....smart and witty!!!!

  11. what a strange request from an expert 'die'r! Dreams can be really terrible when they involve such things like crashing, falling, being chased by creatures. I always wake myself up and think of nice things before falling asleep again, lest the dreams goes on to finish! :)

  12. Haha...I had fun reading this...awesome fun dream...And yes, I am reminded of one such scary and recurring dream now. Will blog about it soon. As for this post, I am glad I came across it. :)
