Before being old enough to know about drugs and alcohol, I thought people committed suicide because they were donating their inheritance and life savings to poor or homeless people when they died, do they would be killing themselves for charity!

I used to think that death was being born again inside another person or animal but it wasn't like that once when I was 10 years old I was knocked unconscious as a classmate hung up on me, my mind at that moment was somewhere else than I know how to describe it. But it was different and when I woke up I was in an ambulance and they told me I supposedly died for 1 minute but believe me that time was hours for me.

I used to believe that just by touching the poison that kills insects, you would die in an hour. Once I was in my house I accidentally touched an insect sprayed with said poison. I was very worried I thought that I would die at any moment, I did not know how long an hour was!

When I was a child I used to be very fearful and believed a lot in ghosts, demons, witches, goblins because of the stories my parents told me or even stories about our grandparents, and it used to scare me a lot and very easily. But now, although I have already lived it completely, I believe it but I have already gotten used to it.

When i was a childI used to think that when we die a man without eyes s with a big black cape he would shelter us and cut off our heads and that would go to hell and our body to heaven now I don't think that anymore.

I used to think that if you were scared "half to death" that you only had one scare left before you died.

I used to think that when people tried to commit suicide by jumping off a building, the ambulance crew would be waiting for them with a safety net at the bottom, and it seemed kind of funny, because falling from a tall building in the city would take at least one minute, so they'd have to set it up very quickly.

I used to think topping yourself meant killing yourself by spinning upside down, like a spinning top!!

This one sounds a bit grim, but is still funny: I used to believe that when someone died in a hospital, the coffin was kept under the floor or behind the wall, so when the life support machine went off and they died, the body would go through the machine and into the coffin, ready for the funeral.

This one is a bit obscure, but my dad once told me that humans can be put down in Sweden, like with animals at the vets, and although he was obviously joking, Sweden is still a high rate suicide country, so that must be why he thought of it. Still funny that I believed it anyway.

I always thought that being buried in a cemetery or graveyard meant the undertakers would take the body out of the coffin and was relieved to find out the opposite at my grandpa's funeral. That would be so creepy.

I hold my breath every time I pass a graveyard because it’s rude to breath in the presence of the dead when they can’t breath.

On a bit more of a darker side, when I was little and I first heard my mother say "You're grounded", what I really thought she meant was that she was going to kill me and put me in the ground! --'ground dead'

When I was in first grade I was being told about how Heaven is this awesome paradise made out of gemstones and I thought it'd be nice to go there but I knew you only could if you were dead so I told my parents that I thought it'd be a good idea to intentionally get run over by a car so I could go to Heaven.

I had this classmate who was my friend during class but I was really scared of at recess because he'd claim that he wanted to eat me and he'd hiss at me, drool and say these phrases like "Lunch time", "No survivors" and "Yummy food" in an evil voice.
Once, he did it in class, but not generally and that's why I was usually OK with him in class.
Some other kids were afraid of him for the same reason, but others laughed at me for being afraid.
My parents told me he wasn't serious but I thought I couldn't be too careful.
Another classmate of mine liked to pretend he was dying and at first I believed him but eventually I didn't.
