When I first started school I had a recurring nightmare that everyone else in the school -- both teachers and kids -- had all been taken over by aliens masquerading as people and were intent on "assimilating" me next. I would run and hide under the coats hanging on racks, or lock myself in a toilet cubicle for as long as possible. This went on for some months before I (reluctantly) adjusted to school life. Only many years later when I saw the movie "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" did I realise that my paranoid fantasy was not unique to me but was apparently shared by enough other people to warrant making a successful movie about it!

when i was little i was kind of obcessed and terrified that aliens would come and take over the world. once we were in the grocery store and i saw the weekly world news with a picture of an alien on the cover. not knowing about the um..."creativity" or the articles published in the weekly world news, i was convinced that the aliens had finally come.

When I was four or five I always wanted to meet aliens. I thought that I would build a flying car to visit them on the weekends. That never happened.

When I was 8 years old I would pray to god to please please have the aliens come to abduct me. If god did this I would never ask for anything ever again. My mom heard me one night as she passed by my room and suggested that I stop because if the aliens abducted me she would miss me. I reluctantly stopped. Now that I am grown I think I may start that up again

Several miles south of my house is a town with high street lights. So, at night, there is a straight dotted line of lights on the horizon. At the same time of me noticing it, I was annoyed with the "patrols" at our school who were crossing patrols. Almost everyone was a patrol. So, one night, when a friend came over, i told her that the patrols were aliens. A ufo would take them from the school to the party where the lights were and they'd peel off their skins and party and talk about us. She spent the entire night in fear. I was a cruel child.

I used to believe that aliens had really, really good hearing, and that if I hummed the right notes in the right order, they would interpret it as a sign that I wanted to be abducted, and they would come and take me, but they could only take me if I was alone...

At night, I used to not want to sleep in my bedroom because I was convinced microscopic aliens lived in my clothes and would come out when I was sleeping.If they came out,they run up my bed and stuff my clothes in my mouth.Suprisingly enough I never went into a mental hospital...

I have a phobia of E.T. ever since watching the film when I was 7 years old. I used to believe he was hiding behind the curtains in my bedroom.
AND I'M STILL SCARED OF HIM TODAY!

When I was about 5, I thought my parents were secretly somebody else and shared "alien" secrets behind my back. I got over this wierd phase very soon. But for some reason still wondered a little while after.

i have this mark on the back of my thighs that looks like a pinkish plug socket, and my sister used to always tell me that i was adopted (and i believed her b/c i didn't look much like my family. i'm the only one out of 8 w/ blonde hair)so anyways i would ask her who my real family was and she would tell me that i was an alien and everynight when i was sleeping they would come plug me in w/ the mark on my thigh.

my sister made me believe that if you didn't have a birth mark you were an alien, this was ok for me as i did but my other sister didn't, she thought for 2yrs that she was an alien, we even had a photo of her being "left" on this planet

top belief!

I used to believe that everything I said was being transported into space, and if the 'aliens' out there heard it, they would know where eart was, so they could come and kill all of us. I was not a very talkative child.

When i was little, i went to my baby-sitter's house who happened to have her own place. Her boyfriend came over and we watched a scary movie about aliens or monsters or something of the sort coming out of things including the walls. My bed at home was pushed up against a wall and i was convinced that if i touched the wall at all while i was sleeping an alien would come out and get me. I still feel weird to this day sleeping next to a wall.

Being an evil older sister, I convinced my 6-year old little brother and his best friend that the static noise heard on the radio was actually "E.T. the extraterrestrial" trying to communicate with them. The two of them spent an entire afternoon attempting to talk to "ET" whilst I smirked in the background... the ruse ended when my brother's friend told his older brother about their productive afternoon - and was put straight.

I used to think that roaches were aliens because it was hard to kill them. I'm still not so sure I was wrong.
