I’m not gonna lie. This absolutely, 100%, terrifies me. And it looks cold AF there.

I boat and have a boating license and Island cottaged for years but I have ALWAYS had a deep-seated fear of the endless, dark, shark and jellyfish infested cold ocean. Call me a pussy but what has two thumbs and is an excellent operator of any boat under 36 ft (more than that and my distance is bad)?
“This guy” if you can’t read the graphic on the free john Krasinski ‘This Guy’ gif.
I can’t stomach the idea of flying over the ocean for no other reason than I just don’t want to die in the ocean especially when it’s raging violent freezing cold death.
Now that I think about it, I bet I have a phobia of the ocean. an ‘ocean phobia’ if you will.
Fearof.net says Ocean Phobia is known as Thalassophobia. There are many phobias associated with water bodies and Thalassophobia is one of them. It refers to an intense and often unwarranted fear of the ocean. The word Thalassophobia comes from Greek Thalassa meaning ‘sea or ocean’ and phobos meaning fear or dread.
I’m serious. The scene in A perfect storm (spoiler alert) where EVERYone dies including Mark Wahlberg and the crash scene in Castaway, I almost have to, did, and still might look away.
It’s not the plane crash. I can handle a little plane crash. It’s the idea that this these actors are going to end up in a very deep, creepy place at 700 mph.
Or sink to the abyss most likely to become a food source.
Having to watch those videos to do this post was hard for me so, you’re welcome.
