My mother died when I was 6. For years I thought she was buried under my bed. To this day, as an adult, I never keep anything under my bed or look under it.

I used to believe that everyone carried maggot "eggs", or "larvae" in their bodies and when they died, the maggots knew it and came to life to eat your body.

I once heard the story of Rip Van Winkle and from then on I thought the reason they wrote R.I.P. on gravestones was because the people were sleeping.

When I was young, I saw a very tall gravestone and I asked my mom why it was so big. She replied "He must have had a lot of money" so for the longest time, I thought that when people died, all the money they had was kept inside the gravestone.

I was raised Catholic, and when I was very small, the Funeral Mass was very confusing. I was just getting to the age when I could understand what the priest was saying, and I came to the conclusion that the people receiving communion were actually eating the dead person. The really scarey thing is that I don't remember the idea bothering me!

I looked up death in the dictionary, and it said something about not breathing and having no heartbeat, so I would try to lie very still and not breathe in order to have a near-death experience.

I used to believe that my lego car was a reincarnation of my grandfather. You shoudl have seen my reaction when it was accidentally smashed by my mom. I was devestated and did not talk to anyone for a week.

I used to believe that when you visited a graveyard, the ground would suck you in and that is how you died.

I used to believe that your life expectancy was inversly proportional to how much you talked. The more you talked, the sooner you died. And you couldn't go through life not talking to anybody, which is why people didn't live forever.

I used to think that when people were killed in the movies they were actually killing very old people that were dressed up to look young (I figured it was cause they wouldnt live much longer anyway). I was terrified for the day my Grandparents would have to be in a movie.

I was once at home in the kitchen. No one else was home. I made some toast. It got stuck in the toaster. So I put a knife in it to get the toast out. I got a huge electrical shock. I thought I was dead, but I wasn't sure, so I walked around the house, not touching anything (just in case) waiting for someone to come home to tell me whether I was dead or alive.

I used to think that the phrase "Death Row" was pronounced "Death Road". I thought that every time another prisoner was sentenced to "Death Road" he had to get in line behind the person that had been sentenced before him and wait his turn until his execution. All the prisoners were obviously lined up on this Death Road.

When I was 7 my grandpa died. I actually believed for the longest time that the hospital was playing some kind of sick joke. I would wait for him to come walking through the door everyday. It took almost a year to belive he was gone.

I used to belive that when it was a hazy day and the sunshine was coming through the broken clouds in such a way that made visible light beams through to the ground-- that God was raising up all the souls of the dead people to heaven.

During the halloween "season" i would drive around looking at decorations with my mom. After we would pass house after house with RIP inscribed on the gravestone, i started believing "RIP" was a very famous dead guy.

I used to believe that if you dreamed that you were going to fall off a cliff or die in some way that if you seen your death then you would die then and never wake up. Everytime I dreamed of falling off a cliff I would always jump and wake up and almost fall off my bed.
