People like you trying to act all cool and stuff. "Afraid of ugliness", ya, sure thing buddy. So when you see an ugly person walking, you start shivering, vomitting, screaming and whatnot...?
Get the fk outa here.

Someone needs to not skip interpretation class I see.

Some of those are BS. Who fears hearing good news?

Although I did fear making lots of money for awhile. I know it sounds dumb, but I was raised in a very materialistic community (and society), and it's important to myself that I always stay grounded.

Robots cant feel.

And these are phobias, which often mean the phobia is an irrational fear, why try rationalizing it?

Octophobia - Fear of the figure 8.

I have the opposite of this. I can't see the time or set the microwave without making it equal 8 in some way. In fact, it took me 153 sets of 8 steps to walk to class this morning.
