When I was five and my baby brother was about 1 I can remember tickling him so much that he was out of breath. My mother came along and said be careful you'll tickle him to death,consequently I never tickled him again fearing that I would kill him.

i used to watch the kind of cartoons when people died, a stream of light would come from the sky and carry there spirits up to heaven. so everyday when my mom was driving me from church, i would look out the window and see shafts of light coming through the clouds. then i would be very sad because i thought people were dying.

My parents once told me that people went to heaven when they died. For years I believed that their body went up to heaven after the funeral and the family buried the box they had been in. Don't know how the body got up there, though...

When I was little, I used to think a dead person always looked the same way: eyes closed, tounge hanging out off to the side of their mouth.

Around the ages of 4-6 or so I thought when you died that you fell on your back and your tongue hung out of your moth.

I used to believe that meat was obtained from animals who died a natural death.

When I attended a funeral with my family and was told about cremation I assumed that the person was being cooked for eating. I was not able to eat meat for some time after as I was always concerned that I was potentially eating a human.

When talking to me about A.I.D.S., my mother told me that she knew a woman who had died of A.I.D.S...When I asked her how that woman got the disease in the first place, my mother told me that "She had been with many men", and from then on I was afraid of being around too many males in one place at one time, for fear of getting A.I.D.S.

When I was little, my dad was a traveling salesman and I would go with him alot. He would tell me that the big stacks of hay in a farmers field was where the Indians were buried! I passed this one on to my own kids!

I remember watching a TV programme where a guy was murdered by receiving 30 "blows" to the head. I thought this meant someone actually breathed on him heavily 30 times - so I tested it on my brother!!

I remember being in second grade and listening to my mom and dad as they taked about a neighbor who had recently passed away from a "hard" attack. I went on for two years praying that I would never have a hard attack and die. In fourth grade I wrote a paper in my English class about a relative who had passed away from such an attack. My English teacher was a wonderful older woman who would never make fun of her students but she couldn't contain her chuckles as she read my paper. Needless to say she straightened me out that day. Now I hope I will never die of a "heart" attack!

My father told me at one time that Richard Dean Anderson, my childhood hero from MacGyver had died in real life. I was so upset until recent years when I saw Stargate. Happy as a squirrel since then.

i was watching a moive when i was about 9 when a baddie got 'STD' and was going to die. I asked my dad how someone got STD and he said that it was when people do naughty things. Up until about 16 i thought that if you were naughty you would catch STD and die.

Suppose it was one way to make sure i behaved!

When I was in grade 4, the boys across the table told me that the people in ancient horror movies, like the origional Dracula ect... they actually had too be killed because they didnt have special effects, so if you wanted too be in a movie like that they gave your family a ton of money after you'd died. Anyway, when i was in grade 8, we had too do a progect type thing on the first movies, and i put in this information, i still dont know if it's true, i doubt it

once, when i was younger, my grandparents got into a motorcycle accident. when the phone rang, i didnt think anything of it. after that day, and for a few years afterwards, i thought if i didn't think "please don't let it be something bad" between the first and second rings of the phone, then either I or someone I knew was gonna die on the spot. this belief was especially frightening when i forgot to say it and i found my mother sleeping. i thought she was dead.

i used to think that when people died in a horror movie they were really dead so i figured that when someone wanted to kill themselves they would just try out for a horror movie

I used to believe that if anyone offered you a ride, and you got in their car, bad things would happen to you and you would die. Even if it was your friend and her mom, insisting on giving you a ride as they drive alongside you as you walk all the way home.
