For example, swimming in my apartment's pool (4 ft deep) I keep turning around because I'm afraid there will be a shark behind me, even with the knowledge that 1) there isn't, and 2) I wouldn't be able to do anything even if there were.
If I can't see the bottom, there's obviously a five hundred foot long leviathan about to eat me.
Ohmygod ohmygod me too. I start hyperventilating if anyone manages to coax me, like, 10 feet away from the shore of any body of water, no matter how utterly implausible shark/alligator/prehistoric monster infestation is.
