When I was younger, my sister told me that when you reached the age of 12, you had to take your head off to go to sleep. I actually believed her....such a loser. In all fairness though...she is 14 years older than me, and i was very very little. It still freaked me out though, and i was scared to go into her or my parents room when they were asleep...in case their heads weren't attached

When I was younger, somewhere between six and eight, I had a bizarre dream where my Mother fell into a giant crack in our Driveway... Well, she didn't exactly fall in, she was pulled in by little chinese kids- that's right, little chinese kids. When I woke up, I was so sad, because I thought my Mom got pulled in forever.

When I was about 6 I read something in a magazine about how people of a certain culture (no idea which) believed that if you slept with your mouth open your soul would climb out and you would stay asleep forever... this scared the hell out of me and I couldn't go to sleep for ages because I was too afraid my mouth would fall open!

I used to believe that when humans slept, our spirits came out to play and fly around the earth all night, and we wouldn't wake up unless the spirit decided to come back inside of us. I thought that dreams weren't really dreams but all the things that our spirits had done and seen while they were flying around.

I use to believe that the sound of my dad snoring was actually a jar of lollies in the kitchen that would rattle through out the night. I would lie awake thinking about these lollies - i even thought i knew where they where kept. Each morning I would look for them and was very confused as they where never there. very strange

When I was little I used to hear my dad snoring in bed at night, I thought that it was an alligator in there trying to eat the sheets off the bed gulp by gulp so he could get to my parents.

You know how sometimes you have a dream but you can't tell if it was a dream or ture? Well, when I was younger I dreamt that a Barbie Doll Convertable Car with and evil Barbie and Ken came driving by and tried to run over me when I had fallen on the floor. I was always scared to hang my hand down the side of my bed after that and I actually still am to this day. I know it's not real, but if I imagine it hard enough, I can think that the evil Barbie Car is actually under my bed waiting to attack me. And I'm 19!!!

i always believed that when you went to sleep that your eyes rolled back and looked at your brain until one day my mom said "im tired. i think i'll go watch the back of my eyelids." then i realized your eyes dont roll back.

I used to believe that elves came in at night and moved me while I was sleeping, thus my changed position when I awoke.

When I was little I knew people in england were 7 hours behind us on the clock ( I had relitives there). I also knew that if you slept time would move faster. I put these two knolages togeather to come up with the belife that we are all conected in our sleep. So if you were having a day when time seemed to slow down it ment that someone in england was not sleeping there for making your day longer

i used to believe that i could control my dreams by a computer that i had in my brain. i could simply call up a list of possible dreams and "click on" whicheer one i felt like having that night. for some reason my favorite was one called "fish in a bonnet," which was about this little striped fish that wore a pink bonnet and solved crimes.

My little brother once asked what snoring was. When we explained it was a breathing thing while you slept, he seemed very surprised. We asked him what's wrong, and he said, "Don't you stop breathing when you sleep?"

I used to believe that when people are sleeping they stop breathing. So when it was time to go to sleep and i wasnt asleep asleep yet, my mom would come check on me so i would hold my breath and close my eyes.

I had problems with nightmares when I was younger and everynight I would repeat "There's no such thing" over and over again hoping that I could convince myself. But I guess my sister who slep in the bottom bunk got aggrivated with my muttering at night and told me that it was no use. That I was too smart for my own good, that I knew the truth. That there was such a thing. And my sister was always so mean that I thought if she was actually calling me smart that she must be telling the truth. I don't think I had a nightmare-less night for a month. I was terrified to sleep. I never really connected the dots that when I used to mutter to myself - it actually did work.

When I was very small I used to beleive that at the moment you start to fall asleep you actually are falling "up". As if your spirit is ripped from your body every night, I would hold on to the covers for dear life and if I started to drift I would jerk myself awake.
