I used to believe that when you died your tounge stuck out and you put your hands across your chest, oryou held flowers. When my brother and I would fake death when we played that's what we did.

When I was around 5 or 6, I saw part of some police procedural tv movie, and the victim had died from a "blow to the back of the head". For at least a year or two afterwards, I thought that if someone blew on the back of your head, you could die. It affected me enough that I could not fall asleep on my side, with the back of my head exposed.

I once believed that when people died it was because the sandman had put too much sand in their eyes and they just couldn't wake up.

I used to have a cat and my parents put a flea collar on the cat. When I asked what it did my mom told me it was posion and any flea that touched it would died. She also told me if I touched it I would get posion on my hands and I must wash them right away. Being a child, I knew posion meant death and, not wanting to die, I spent many years of my life running to a sink after petting my cat so I wouldn't be posioned.

I have a brother who is about three years younger than I. When I was about five, he fell down and skinned his knee, and continued crying very loudly for a long time.

I turned to my mother and said, "Oh, I hope he doesn't suffer so much we have to shoot him."

I guess I thought the practice of putting animals out of their misery applied to humans as well.

I used to believe that the dark spots on sidewalks were the remains of people who had been struck by lightning. I tried very hard to avoid stepping on those spots when walking down the street.

I used to believe that the orange and white barrels filled with sand on exit ramps were to cover up dead bodies and soak up the blood from the road after automobile accidents.

I grew up in the 60's and I truly believed that hiding under my school desk would stop the atomic bomb from hurting me. Wow what a kid will believe when taught by adults of whom they believed to know it all. The bomb never came however; I do not look for a desk anymore when I hear a bomb is possible...Who knows maybe that school desk could have saved me........:-)

When the rays of sunlight shown through the clouds and it hit the ground, I used to think that the sunlight was an escalator for dead people to go to heaven.

When I was about 4 or 5 in midwest USA, I understood life events to be something like

6 yo - get to go to school
10 yo - I made it to ten years old - no tornadoes killed me
13 yo - can have girlfriend and children if I want to
18 yo - get drafted and go to Vietnam
19-20 yo - die in Vietnam

That was pretty much the "life schedule" I thought I was required to work from. TV news at the time was certainly responsible for the last two steps - the news black-out we have today with Iraq in the US is not better though! I value my uneasiness with war.

When I was about 3 or 4 I thought that the jets that fly straight up in the air and left the trails of somke behind them were coffins going to Heaven. When my mom and I were outside and I saw one of the trails of smoke that the jet left, I would look at my mom and say "Look mom there's someones coffin going to Heaven."

I used to believe that when you died, your skeleton left your body and went to heaven, and all the rest of the flesh was left behind. The skeletons could walk around in heaven.
