Nothing special really, just a couple of HF cheap looking things that instant start the tube, plus a bug zapper that takes a 22w Circ, and an 8w Gro lux light for my cuttings

Better have lots of bug zappers, Florida has loads of bugs all around.

Bet there's some scary bugs around there. You guys will have big giant wasps? They'd scare the hell out of me!

Do you have a photo of the typical wasps you have?

Two that I can recall are the European Wasp and Paper Wasp, but I haven't seen any queens.

Re aliens. I would not think of them as scary if they're like Rodger from American dad. But if they're facehuggers then I'd be worried. It's ghosties and demons you need to watch out for.

I'm watching that right now

The future is scary, so I'm gonna hold on to the old stuff if I can. That's mainly why I collect these things.

I strongly believe theres other life out there other than us, but if they were more advanced I doubt they would ever visit here, they would see the human race as `hostile`!

I§m pretty sure there had been and will be some forms of an intelligent life outside Earth in the Universe, even it is quite probable there are som just now, but I strongly doubt there would be any contact (that means information exchange to such extend, so both parties at least are aware of each others existence).

The thing is, for that to happen just too many conditions would have to be met:
- We both would have to be in quite advanced evolution state. For the Earth it means a time window of about 1000years within few billion years of the life on the Earth. That is just barely 1ppm probability.
- We both would have to be of a similar physical size, otherwise wel eill most likely just overlook the existence of the other one (you do not directly see bacteria, we would be so big for the bacteria it will see us as a bunch of rather nonintelligent small cells, because it won't see the whole body). And these were proportions of just a life form coming from common "ancestors", so the difference of another life form will be likely way greater.
- We will have to be present very close by. We are able to see enough details from just few 1000 LY surrounding. Well, the known Universe is of billions LY diameter. If you add the 3D relations, the "close by" is just 10^18'th portion. So 10^18 times more space, where the other civilization may be without us even noticing. If the distance is too big so traveling it will take too many generations, it means such travel is extremely energy demanding for them as well - so it will be either considered out of reach if they are supposed to keep their planet alive (so they will not be traveling those distances), or they suck it so aggressively the life on that planet will disappear (so the chance to meet in the same tame frame becomes way lower)
- The life of both forms would have to progress with similar pace. If not, our "long term" transmission going for 50 years may be seen just as a flash picked by them just randomly, but till they redirect their equipment to confirm it, it is not going to repeat, so they will have no time to really learn anything from it. Or the opposite, if their pace is way quicker, they will see that as a rather permanent "hum" normally expected to come from the starts. Only if the living pace is similar, such signal may be correctly identified. Now if you look just onto our planet, we have even complex creatures with life cycle of barely hours (insects), while at the same time we have 1000 year old trees. And again, both are quite related, in the universe point of view...

So for sure, some of the conditions will be met (e.g. the distance does not have to be such problem, if the form is long living enough, so the light may cross that within quite acceptable time compare to their life length, but then there would be the life pace mismatch).
So really interacting with each other I really see as unlikely.

What would be scary as heck is a nurse giving me an injection with a syringe the size of a 400W tubular MH lamp or wise 600W  :o :o :o :o

Things that most scare me:
1. Applause
2. Laugh
3. When people says or shout "Mazel Tov". Especially if it isn't because of a birthday, bar/bat Mitzvah, wedding or birth of son / daughter.
4. When people says or shout "Mazel Tov" when someone breaks something that made from glass or porcelain, so it is make a similar noise to the glass breaking in a Jewish wedding (I usually see this as an offending behavior).

When I was at Shaffririm special eduction school, I experienced a hard trauma, when I broke a plate in the dinning room of Kibbutz Givat Hayim Icud, and the teens of the Kibbutz, which happened to be there (I didn't recognized them as such during this time), screamed "Mazel Tov!" twice and applauded twice, much like whats customary when the groom breaking the glass in Jewish wedding. This triggered me to be scared from this greeting.

Other things that scares me:
1. Studio audience or laugh track in TV programs (For me, it would be better that these things would be eliminated, and that TV programs won't contains any form of applause/laughter).
2. Air raid sirens.
