Agoraphobia is a mental disorder whose name is derived from the Greek "fear of the marketplace". This basically means that the victim of this disorder is afraid of the outdoors and only feels safe when inside his or her mother's basement, playing video games and reading furry fan fiction.
Interestingly, those claiming to suffer from agoraphobia do manage to turn up at the latest furry, anime or lolicon convention without fail. It is estimated that 99.9% of all people who claim to have the sickness are lying (à la fibromyalgia).
If you do encounter someone who actually does have agoraphobia, try the following fun things to do with him or her:
- Drop them off in the middle of the woods.
- Burn down their house.
- Kick them in the face until they die.
Not to Be Confused With
- The fear of people named Al Gore. Although the man scares the shit out of everyone.
