Have you ever woken up and found out that your unborn son has shown up to try and protect you from a robot from the future that wants to kill you? No? Well, you’re damn lucky, because Sarah Connor had that happen to her and it sucked…..bad. Here are her Top Ten Phobias and I’m sure there are more because of that damn Terminator.
Agateophobia | Fear of Insanity – Yeah, so if your future unborn son shows up from the future, and he’s like, 28? Or something like that, and then a giant musclebound dude shows up and he can get shot in the face and doesn’t die as he’s he trying to kill you, then yeah, you might be afraid you’re going insane………I’ve dated way too many of those musclebound dudes who just won’t die too. Sigh.
Chronophobia | Fear of Time – In Terminator Two, there was something called Judgement Day, that’s when all these robots became sentient, and Sarah Connor was in a race for time to stop them. Do or die…..Scary stuff……My biggest fear is dying before I’ve ever accomplished anything in my life.
Demophobia | Fear of Crowds – Remember when Sarah Connor was in the packed arcade and she couldn’t see where the Terminator was?……So scary. I was on the edge of my seat for that one. I had to change my underpants…….Twice!
Ecophobia | Fear of Home – Once the Terminator showed up and tried to kill her in cold chilling blood, Sarah Connor knew that she could never go home again. She’s been on the run ever since…………Kinda like me, but I’m on the run from my feelings.
Mnemophobia | Fear of Memories – Imagine being locked up in an insane asylum and not knowing if your past was real or not. Fearing if your memories might actually be real and the boogeyman is coming back to get you again…..Yeah, I know, the worst. Welcome to Sarah Connor’s life……….And my PTSD from living with my Uncle Rick.
Tyrannophobia | Fear of Tyrants – Can a whole race of robots be considered a tyrant? You bet your damn ass they can. Skynet was the computer that controlled everything and became the biggest tyrant in the history of the earth by virtually wiping away all of humanity………..I’m going through depression, so I’m gonna say that getting rid of humans might not be a bad thing…….At least for the earth’s sake. We really suck.
Mechanophobia | Fear of Machines – A giant robot from the future that looks like Mr. Universe, and can’t die, just came to kill you……Enough said.
Metallphobia | Fear of Metal – You could say that Sarah Connor was afraid of metal. But to be more specific….. it was liquid metal. Like what the Hell!! Did you see the Terminator in the sequel? He could liquify! If you weren’t scared shitless when he hooked onto the back of the cop car, then you’re just a lying liar……..And he was dressed as a cop. I hate fucking cops….Except the time they arrested my Uncle Rick. They did a good job that day……but that’s all I’m giving them.
Metathesiophobia | Fear of Changes – Change scares a lot of people. You’re stuck in your comfort zone, and that feels warm and fuzzy. Now, what if the next change you were to encounter was robots taking over the earth? Now imagine how scared Sarah Connor must have been when this change started happening…..now times that by a thousand……….And that’s how I felt when I got my first period.
Technophobia | Fear of Technology– Who knew that a computer system called Skynet would gain self-awareness after it had spread into millions of computer servers all across the world. In the interest of self-preservation, Skynet concluded that all of humanity would attempt to destroy it and impede its capability in safeguarding the world, thus trying to exterminate mankind instead. Yeah, and then Sarah Connor gives birth to the person, who in the future, is the head of the resistance against these technological monstrosities, so they start coming after you instead….in the past? ………Am I getting repetitive? Yes! It’s because I’m lazy. Good news though, this Top Ten List About Sarah Conor’s Phobias is over.
Sidenote: This movie makes no sense because Sarah Connor’s protector (Kyle Reese), comes back in time to help her, and impregnates her. That boy turns out to be the leader of the resistance and is the man that sends Kyle Reese back in time to protect his mom. Does it make sense that this does not make sense? Movies are soooooo stupid sometimes, and we are too.
