Gone with the wind...

Is there any sort of irrational fear you have that you identify AS irrational, but still fear it?

For me, I am afraid to go up in a hot air balloon, despite their only being 21 deaths directly related to being in a hot air balloon from 2002-2016 (https://www.nbcnews.com/storyline/hot-air-balloon-accident/how-deadly-hot-air-ballooning-fatalities-are-rare-stats-show-n102116), and no one is forcing me to go up in one! I was thinking of this today as I flew through the air in a metal tube going hundreds of miles an hour while being 32k feet above the solid ground. Kinda ridiculous when you think of it.
