I thought death was when someone gets put into the ground,like a giant mud bath,and wakes up when they feel like it.

when i was little and on a family outing or trip
we were driving past a cemetary my dad would alwaysmake that corny old joke "thats the dead centre of [Birmingham/Chester/Liverpool etc]"
but i took it seriously and for years (and i mean, til like my early teens) i beleived that cemetaries had to be built in the actual centre of a town. like it was a rule or something.
until of course, me and some mates were on a school trip when we were 13 and got lost in the middle of birmingham, we knew that the train station in new street mustbe pretty centrally located so i helpfully suggested "well lets just look for the graveyard, thats the dead centre of town, the station should be nearby"
they had to point out the joke for about 5 minutes whilst laughing hysterically before i would beleive it wasnt actually true, i kept saying, no really, my dad told me, and was even really tempted to make up something like, hes a town planner or an architect or something to save face. oh god i am so embarrassed by this one!!!!

I used to think that when you died. You used to float up into the clouds. So whenever I saw a break in the clouds with the sun shining through in the distance, I thought somebody was floating up to heaven!

I used to belive that you rented a coffin for the funeral and then just dumped the dead body into the dirt and left them there forever, and that the next person to die would get the other person's coffin.

When I was younger, I asked my dad when people died. He told me that you died when you were one-hundred years old and that you would be reborn from the womb again. I started crying because I didn't want to go in the womb again for some strange reason, but that's another story.

I seemed to then be under the idea that when you turned one-hundred you died the night of your birthday. I thought that you'd have a huge party with your friends and family and then you'd die in your sleep.

I used to believe that dead people were buried by sitting them down on the ground in the cemetery and covering them with cement(forming the gravestone).

I believed that if you put a dying person in a totally sealed air-tight transparent glass box, when the person actually dies, the glass box would develop a small crack indicating that the soul (spirit) has escaped that way.

I always used to wonder how an actor that had died in his previous movie had come to life again in his next flick. I actually thought that actors had superpowers so that they could return from the dead.

When my grandma is dying, I shut all doors and windows. I used to believe that by shutting all access to air, the soul of the dying person would stay with the body. Then the person won't die.

I used to hold my breath everytime we drove past a cemetary because if you breathed the bodies would be able to absorb your oxygen and then turn into zombies. Needless to say, if we passed a particularly large cemetary I would be quite purple by the time it was 'safe'. I admit, even now, I sometimes still hold my breath when I pass a cemetary!

i used to think that death was only temporary, but when i was 4 i realized that i would die eventually and i wouldn't come back to life, because of the line in the song "Puff the Magic Dragon" ---- "dragons live forever, but not so little boys" (even though i'm a girl). I couldn't sleep because i was imagining all my stuffed animals living forever when i die.

When I was little I thought that you could die inside, or you would bump your head when your spirit ascended. My mom wasn't sure what to tell me about this, since she thought I probably felt pretty safe inside.

I used to believe that my old grandmother had a long life and was still alive because she had also forgotten to die due to forgetfulness brought about by old age. This was long ago before I knew the term, "Alzheimer's Disease"

I used to believe that 'prosecuted' meant the same as 'exterminated', so the signs on the wall of our local cricket ground; 'Trespassers will be prosecuted' scared me to death. I thought there were daleks in there...
