23 Mortifying Photos That Will Leave You With Submechanophobia

If you’re someone who grew up through life, deeply troubled by seemingly innocent items like buoys, chains, and miscellaneous sea debris, you’re not alone. In fact, you very likely have “submechanophobia.” Submechanophobia is defined as a fear of submerged human-made objects, either partially or entirely underwater. These objects could be shipwrecks, status, sea mines, animatronics like what you see in theme parks or old buildings, and the aforementioned “boring sea items.” If you aren’t plagued by submechanophobia we can’t make any promises that these photos won’t send you in the other direction.
