Quite the inappropriate time to post this, but none the less i would like to bring it up.
What Do you fear?
I fear the incomprehensible.
Mainly my own mind, trying to understand it is like trying to put a box inside itself. Bloody impossible.
I mostly fear that horrific environmental collapse and mass poverty is going to happen right around when I'm old and unable to save myself.
Such a jolly thread!
I know right! :D
It's such an interesting topic, though. Like, what would you do during a zombie apocalypse.

(Although I don't have it) The concept of Huntington's disease has always been frightening to me. The thought of a (currently) incurable and severe illness that randomly and without warning 'pops up' if you have the genes for it is a pretty scary thought.
Oh wow, definitely. I actually have a - thankfully mild - genetic disease called MEN I. "Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia", meaning "random glands grow extra tissue for no good reason". The fun thing about it is that it has different symptoms in each person because different glands can be affected.
Speaking of zombie apocalypses, I have this whole rant on my todo list about whether zombie apocalypses are actually about ethnic cleansing.
On the note of zombies, it would be interesting if there is a zombie plague that randomly afflicts the population and ships of your empire. :P
Apparently my family's genes are set up for cancer. As in my family is notorious for members randomly popping up with lung cancer.
Basically, there is a chance that when you'r born you have genes which will give you lung cancer in later years.
The cancer could start anytime, though it only becomes detrimental to your health a few years after. Though i do not know much about it.
