TOP TEN FEARS 1

Fear of public speaking Glossophobia | 74 %

2

“I’m afraid of the dark and scary movies. I hate the dark because it’s the unknown and I have no idea what’s in there. I hate scary movies. I’m not going to pay to get scared; who does that? I’m also afraid of not being able to provide for my family in the future. That terrifies me.” CHRISTOPHER PORTELLO junior, business

“I’m afraid of being stuck in high places. Like on roller coasters, I’m not afraid of that. But like the roller coasters where you sit still at the top and then it drops you, I don’t like that. I can’t do those.” CIERA PHILLIPS freshman, psychology

“Why am I afraid of clowns? Because I saw the movie “It.” I don’t like how you can’t see their face, and they’re always so happy…until they’re trying to kill you. It freaks me out that you can’t see their real face. I really just don’t like anything fake. Anything where you can’t see their real face, I don’t like it.”

“I’m afraid of being alone. I’ve always been alone, like I’ve had friends just up and leave me suddenly. So I’ve always tried to be someone people want to be around. When I do have to be alone, I’ll listen to music or just think about my life. I don’t have to call anyone or anything like that, I just don’t like it.”

SARA KASSAB junior, education

DUNCAN MAYER junior, general business

Fear of death Necrophobia | 68 % For the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Summer Workshop this past summer, Angelica Torres, Christopher James and Collin Buerger studied “Predator-Prey Interaction of Wolf Spider (Lycosidae) and Cricket (Gryllidae) in a Controlled Extreme Urban Environment.” Watch for information on the UGROW program in an upcoming special edition of The Wichitan.

Fear of spiders Arachnophobia | 30.5 %

4

Fear of darkness Achluophobia, Scotophobia or Myctophobia | 11 %

5

Fear of heights Acrophobia | 10 %

“I’m afraid of spiders. I hate them because when I was young, my dad got bit. I don’t know what kind of spider it was but my dad got this big hole in his hand from the bite and ever since then, I’ve never liked spiders.”

“I have a fear of being tricked. People playing mind games with me. I guess it’s because I’ve had too many games played on me, at my expense, where people just wanted or needed something from me. I’m not into that.”

alloween is approaching fast, so being scared is about to get a lot easier with haunted houses, scary movies and terrifying costumes around the corner. Many people on campus share the same fears, from spiders to darkness to heights. While we all have similar

“I’m afraid of failing my classes. My mom would kill me. So, to prevent that, I just take all the easy classes.” COLTON HOL,MES senior, biology

“I’m afraid of fear itself. Because if I’m afraid, I feel disabled. I can’t move, I can’t see, I can’t think. I’m frozen, incapacitated.” ZENEBE GENEME senior, nursing

Fear of people or social situations Sociophobia | 7.9 %

7

Fear of flying Aerophobia | 6.5 %

8

Fear of confined spaces Claustrophobia | 2.5 %

fears, we each have our different reasons for why. For some, it all starts with a horror movie. For others, all it takes is a bad prank or a realistic nightmare. Whatever the cause, fear is universal. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 60% of things people fear will never take place, and 90% of things people fear are considered to be insignificant issues, yet the fear feels

all too real for most people. With all the hype about this holiday and the belief that everything must get weird, many people dread the possibility of having to face their worst fears. At least after tomorrow, the stress of being scared will greatly decrease and we can all start preparing for the more cheerful holidays.

Ladies are being judged P

eople say Halloween is just an excuse for girls to dress slutty without being judged. Well ladies, sorry to break it to you, but you are being judged. From disgracing Disney princesses to wrongly representing all kinds of animals, real and fictional, girls find any excuse to cut a Paden dress short and show a bit, or a lot, too Lemons much cleavage. Seriously, some of these costumes are absurd. How do ketchup bottles, Barney the dinosaur, and Batman translate into skanky outfits for college girls to wear for attention? While having this discussion with a friend, she said that girls think guys like it when they are wearing these revealing outfits, but they don’t. Sure, they like to look, but they aren’t looking to keep. Listen girls, have some self-respect. As a girl, I know we like attention, but this is definitely not the kind of attention we should be craving. Shouldn’t we want attention for being funny, smart, helpful or caring rather than for having a hot body? When girls dress scandalously for Halloween, negative assumptions are made about them. People may think they’re easy, begging for attention or immature. I truly hope that’s not what you’re going for.

The

There are more important things than a smoking body or a pretty face. I challenge you, ladies, to strive for a higher standard. Be beautiful in what you do and in who you are. Beauty is much more than outward appearance. You like your body? You’re comfortable in your own skin? Great! Be proud of it, but you don’t have to put it all out there all at the same time. Leave some things up to the imagination. Boys like a challenge, so give them one. What is the real purpose of dressing slutty on Halloween? If it’s for attention, it defeats the purpose because so many other girls are dressing the same way! Isn’t it so much more interesting to actually come up with a clever costume idea that blows everyone away? Be original, and that will get you the attention you want. Ashton Kutcher’s speech at the Teen Choice Awards is one of the most inspiring things I’ve heard. He said, “The sexiest thing in the entire world is being really smart, and being thoughtful and being generous. Everything else is crap. I promise you.” So be smart, ladies, and be generous and be kind because according to Ashton Kutcher, that’s sexy.

“What I fear most is needles. I hate shots, getting blood drawn, anything to do with needles or sharp objects. For this reason, I don’t have any tattoos or piercings. The last time I had to get blood drawn, I thought I was going to pass out. I actually cried. It just feels disgusting.”

“When I was young, I took elevator alone and it got stuck for minutes. My phobia of elevator is made during closing, after that I can take elevator without people. For young age that is so horrible and shocking that experience is so horrible and reminded whenever see elevator.”

“I have always had a fear of the deep and unexplored ocean, but mostly colossal squids. They can eat a full grown adult and are able to swim at fast speeds, so how would I be able to escape?

Japanese artist takes American car for ‘spin’ ALEISHA SOLORIO REPORTER

F

eaturing a car-spinning performance by Japanese sculptor Hironari Kubota, the Museum of Art will be hosting a sculpture symposium beginning Friday. “I feel very fortunate to be here, [it’s] my first time in Texas,” Kubota, via translator, said. “Honestly I was expecting to see cowboys and wild west. But really, I feel like I’m in the Heartland. There is a good energy here.” Known worldwide for constructing towering sculptures capable of spinning cars and boats, Kubota has performed with his pieces in China, Finland, France, Germany and Mexico, but never in America until now. Fit-

tingly, he will be spinning an American car - a 1949 Chevrolet. Suguru Hiraide, sculpture professor, met Kubota in Japan in 2009. Kubota explained his art and his processes to Hiraide, who was impressed and researched more about him. “He told me he was interested in doing a show in the United States, because he’d never been here before,” Hiraide said. “I told him if I heard of any opportunities I’d let him know. And last year, I was elected president of the Sculpture Network of Texas, and I told them I was going to host the sculpture symposium at MSU. They approved that, and I remembered Kubota’s work, and I thought this would be the perfect time to invite him.”

The Tribeca Film Institute chose Moffett Library to be one of five libraries in Texas to participate in a grant-funded program. “This is the first time the Tribeca Film Institute has selected libraries in Texas to be part of the program,” librarian Clara Latham said. Latham said the community has been supportive of the series thus far, but not to the extent that MSU administrators expected when they were chosen for this program. “We were hoping for around 200 people each session of the America Series in music and so far have had around 100 to 120,” Latham said. The night of the presentation starts with a movie, followed by a lecture and then a musical performance. Joe Specht, a country and bluegrass scholar from Abilene, was chosen as the speaker for the bluegrass portion of the series. The university paid him $150 to speak and Brian Hull paid for their hotel and meals as a co-sponsor of the series. Specht has a book of songs that is available for purchase through the museum gift shop. “Songs about Wichita Falls has been recorded commercially over the years and is available for $12,” Specht said. At the end of the night, the Dan Miller Trio performed some of the genre’s most popular songs. “I thought it was pretty neat how the band brought along someone from Billy Bob Thornton’s band to come to our little town of Wichita Falls to perform,” Laverene Roland said.

said. The tennis courts host various tournaments throughout the year, and even offer lessons to those wanting to learn the sport. Hagerman said the center is a good place for students to spend their free time. There are two different courts open for play. The Hamilton Tennis Center right off of Hampstead, and the Weeks Park Tennis Center hidden between apartments on Weeks Park lane. “I always make sure I give people exact direcKENDRA DAVIS tions when they call,” REPORTER Hagerman said. “We’ve had a funny experience where people who’ call up and want to play would go to the other court by mistake because we aren’t right off a major street.” “Anybody who wants to play some tennis can bring friends and come to play,” John Simmons, head professional at Hamilton Tennis Center said. “I’d love to have more college students.” Students can go to the courts to either play matches or watch them. “I go sometimes to play,” Audry Stevens, sophomore in horticulture said. “I just found out about this place [Weeks Tennis Center] and it gives me something to do when there’s nothing to do on campus. Plus it’s cheap.” The courts are for anyone. The head professionals at both centers offer classes for adults, including college students. For eight classes, the price is $86 including single play. If visitors want to go for one day, it costs $17. “We need to get info out to the sororities and organizations so they can come and get group discounts,” Simmons said. At the tennis centers, visitors are not required to play any matches. They have bleachers and seats inside the buildings made just for spectators. “It’s really fun to go and just watch,” Khadeja Green, freshman in special education said. “It’s surprisingly entertaining.
