Default Re: Dislike for popping applying to other stuff?
I think my dislike for balloon popping came from there being shooting in the middle of the night right by my childhood house. It's not trauma-y now if I accidentally pop, but loud sounds in public do slightly get me.

Although once when my roommate and I were mucking around with some condoms we got, for some reason I started getting uncomfortable when she stretched the condom over her fist. I thought it would snap off, which sounded weird to me because I know damn well condoms are more durable than that.
Thats my problem too although its the anticipation of a sudden loud bang that makes me jump as with someone or myself blowing balloons up. Its a long story but basically i ended up dead scared of balloons and in later life came to like them and also the danger element of blowing a balloon up to its utmost limit of stretch. I one bursts on me Im stunned for a few minutes but can then carry on.

Same here. I really hate it. I just enjoy fireworks.
