I used to believe that you die when you hit 100 years.
This caused me great distress, as I could count to 100 very fast.

When I was a kid I would see R.I.P. on gravestones and I thought that was the guys name. I remarked once to my mother, "man that guy RIP is burried all over the place." She then explained, "It means rest in peace."

When i was a kid i thought that when you died, all your coughs and sneezes and hiccups were put into a large concrete box in the middle of the cemetary.
i have no idea why, but it made perfect sense at the time

When I was six or seven, I used to think that if you swallowed even the tiniest piece of plastic, you were doomed to death. I also thought that plastic and paper were the same thing. So, one Christmas after presents were opened and breakfast was being prepared, I accidently (don't ask me how) swallowed a bit of wrapping paper or something like that. When I realized with horror what I had done, I crawled behind the couch and waited to die. After about thirty seconds, I realized I wasn't going to die, at least not then anyway. So I went and ate breakfast. The end.

when i was little i had a theory that when you are about to die that all your closest friends, relative etc.. sits around with you and you go to this room where they all watch a video of your life. I thought that somehow your brain was videotaping everything that happened even your thoughts and when the end is near everyone will watch it ... so i always tried not to look at bad stuff or think any bad thoughts :P

When I was about 5 or 6, my mom took me out trick-or-teating on halloween. A fake, cardboard gravestone was on our neighbors' yard for decoration. I immediately was scared of it because I thought R.I.P. meant that the dead got their heads ripped off and that they would come to get me because they thought it was my fault. For years, when I went to cemetaries, I would stay away from "R.I.P." gravestones.

When I was a child, I was scared of dying--so much so, that I would check my heart every few minutes to make sure it was still beating. I didn't realize that if it wasn't, I'd have already been dead.

I thought I was going to die when I was 4 - I had been on a preschool excursion and in those days they put your name and used a pin to attach it to your clothes... well my name came off so I put the pin in my mouth for safe keeping - promptly swallowed the pin by accident and was sure I was going to die - I cried and cried, at bed time mum finally coaxed out of me why I was crying "I'm *sob* going to die! *sob*" and she started laughing! man was I p-d off - did this woman not care? when I finally managed to tell her about the pin and she assured me that no I wasnt going to die.
That was a very traumatic day.

My grandpa died of a heart attack shortly before my birth. For years, I thought his heart was attacked by something, like tiny ants who entered his body with swords and such and attacked his heart and killed him. No matter who had this heart attack, that same army of ants would attack people's hearts, so my little head believed. Fortunately, I finally asked Dad, and he told me what happened, in little kid terms.

i used to believe that there was an ingriedient inside birthday cakes that made you grow older and that if you ate too much cake, you would drop dead and that that's why people died. For the longest time i refused to eat cake because i didn't want to die and i wanted to stay a kid forever

When I was about 5, we went to the cemetary to visit my grandmother's grave. We passed a grave that someone had decorated with balloons, and I looked up at my mom and said (in all seriousness), "There must be a clown buried there."

One day, on the way to a funeral, our car passed the cemetary where most of my family is buried. My mother quietly mentioned "That's where I want to be buried when I die." My 4-year-old brother looked shocked and started crying/screaming "You're going to die?! I don't want you to die." My mom then tried comforting him by saying, "Honey, everybody dies eventually." My little brother started screaming hysterically, "I'm going to die? We're all going to die?" Eventually, we all just decided that death is not to be discussed in the presence of my brother.

When I was realy little my aunt died so I was expsosed to death. So when ever we went in the car, and I "fell asleep" (I always pertended that I would be asleep so I could get carried into the house) I would pretend to snore because I thought that my dad would think that I was dead if I was just sleeping normaly with out snoring.
