If I'd get a piece of crystal or wood and it would stick half way in my skin, my mom would try to get it out and tell me that if she didn't, it would go into my bloodstream and that it would reach my heart and kill me. I don't know if that's true or not but I ALWAYS take the sharp things out if they're stuck in my skin.

My grandpa died when i was four and my mom told me he died of cancer and i pictured dying of cancer as him sitting in a pot that you hang on the porch with flowers in it, on the ground in the middle of a field.

I used to believe that lightning would actually strike a person if they lied and said may lightning strike me if I'm lying.

While watching movies where someone died in an accident/fight (obviously a stunt man was used) I used to believe that the person was someone who didn't want to live anymore and had really died.

I used to believe that my grandparents (who had passed away) would fly around to spy in the window to make sure my cousins and I were behaving ourselves when someone would tell me they were watching over us.

When I was younger I thought that everything I did was written down in a big book that other people would get to read when I died. Sometimes I would "remember" and in my head I would be reciting what would go in the book. I suppose I was influenced by Michael Ende's The Neverending Story.

I used to believe that as you lived your life your brain saved everything you ever saw, thought, or felt like a sort of special video camera. I thought that when you died all your friends would have access to these by sitting around and watching the TV with your body plugged in. I made sure not to think any bad thoughts about my close friends because I know they would be upset when they heard my think it when I was dead!

When I was about four, I sometimes got tired around noon and would fall asleep on the couch. Then one day I had to go to my grandfather's funeral. He looked just like a sleeping person! After that, I was worried that if I took a nap on the couch, my mom would think that I died and bury me. I asked my dad to write a note that said "I'm still alive," and when I felt like a nap, I would tape it to my shirt so my mom would know I wasn't dead.

I thought only animals and old people could die. It was a big shock for me when someone told me everyone can die...

I went to my great-uncle's funeral when I was about 6. After that, I believed that if I fell asleep with my hands folded across my torso, that I would die in my sleep.

I'm 27, and I still refuse to put my hands on my chest when I go to sleep!

Up until the age of seven, when I saw any animal or human dying, I always thought they were REALLY dying. My dad loved to watch shoot 'em up movies, and sometimes I would walk in when someone was getting shot. I used to believe this was the way the people executed the prisoners. Honest!

When he was little, my boyfriend believed that when people were buried after they died, they grew into something, just like planting a seed. He just couldn't figure out what they grew into.

I used to believe that when someone died and was cremated, they would put your dead body into a coffin, push the coffin down a steep hill, and it would land in a roaring bombfire while people threw beer bottles into it and watched it explode. That was in second grade. I just learned that that is not what happens. lol. I also thought a creamery (ice cream place) was where you got cremated, and wondered why so many people were there in the summer. Ok, that was last year when I thought that. I'm still a kid so that counts!

I used to believe that if you drew a triangle on your body with 3 dots, you would die. I have no idea where I got that idea. I still can't draw triangles on my body with 3 dots.

My mom named me after her beloved cat, Melissa, who was still alive when I was about 4. By then, I had already learned that when an animal was sick, you had to put it down. (we had already lost one of our dogs) Then, one night, when I had the flu, I came downstairs to get a glass of water, and I overheard my mom saying "Yeah, Melissa is so sick... I think I'm going to have to put her down." I was terrified, so I ran back upstairs and convinced myself that if I went right to bed, I would get better in the morning, and I wouldn't have to die.

I used to think that the actors who died in movies actually died. I thought the directors had a casting call before shooting the movie where people who wanted to die would line up and get assigned parts.
