I used to believe that the search lights that are frequently used to advertise a business were actually aliens that are skeletons invading the earth, and that the only way that I could hide from them was by sitting under my window. They never caught me! *grin*

My mum and dad used to ensure me and my brother were well behave by telling us that the 'Daleks' would come and take use away, every now and then our aurn and uncle cma round with their estate care with said daleks in it. It was around 5 years later we discovered that the daleks were just upturned metal dustbins.

I was CONVINCED that under my bed were those creepy aliens from Sesame Street, the Yip Yips. They would come thrugh the walls at night (they COULD go through walls, you know)and had a base set up under my bed whre they would spy on me and take notes about humans. Of course, having a parent check under the bed was useless because they could vanish.

Thank you for traumatizing my childhood, Mr. Henson! ;-)

When I was little my mother used to tell me to shut my eyes so "the Sandman" could put sand in them, when she was putting me to bed, I used to be terrified because to me the Sandman was what we nowadays call a "grey" or "tan" alien, and he didn't put sand in my eyes, he stuck a glass rod up my nose for some reason. This image stayed with me for years and years, and even now in my late 30's if I hear someone mention the Sandman it gives me the heebeegeebees

I used to believe that when my parents were angry with me that it was a sure indication that they had been bodysnatched by aliens. I would try and sneek up on them late at night while they were watching television. I was sure that if I was quite enough I would catch them with their masks off!

When I was around 7, everytime I played Gauntlet on my Nintendo system the TV would flash with static and I could hear voices of someone talking. I was convinced that those were aliens! I showed this to my friends and they heard, saw and believed it too.
I still don't know what caused it but it probaly had something to do with a radio antenna, although there were none in the neighborhood...

I used to watch Unsolved Mysteries as a child and I was intrigued by the alien segments of the show. One day they showed a picture of a huge UFO terrorizing people and then a lady popped up and said that she saw aleins banging on her backyard glass sliding door. I was so scared I would keep looking behind me at our sliding glass door just to be sure. It was so dark outside that I would be to afraid to get up just to check.

I was 7 when I saw "E.T" for the first time and it scared me so much. I thought E.T. lived my shower, so every night before I could go to sleep, my Mom and Dad had to call into the shower to see if E.T. would answer. When he didn't, I could finally fall asleep.

I used to believe that aliens would come and get me in the night. I would lay awake terrified. To make matters worse, I was convinced that thinking about it sent a mind signal to them and they'd know exactly where I was. I never could avoid this train of thought, but they still haven't come to get me. (of course, there were some injuries I could never explain)

I used to believe that aliens were going to get me at night and if I slept with my hands under the covers, they couldn't touch my fingertips and kidnap me.

When I was a kid we lived near some hills that had several televistion broadcasting antennas. I asked my mother what they were, and she said "they are aliens, and they've landed and come to take over the earth." Everytime I saw them I was fascinated and terrified.

My older brother was a big Dr.Who fan (80's scifi show. very weird) Anyhow, we all grew up in the Upper Pennisela of Michigan, which means TONS of snow every winter. When we would walk up to meet our bus for school, we would encounter the chunks of snow that fell off from under our parents car's. Our older brother would tell my younger brother and i that they were alien eggs from Dr.Who and we had to jump on them and smash them or they would hatch and kill us. We jumped on those things every winter for years.

When I was in 3rd grade I was a latchkey kid (had to stay at home alone in the afternoon). One night I watched "Unsolved Mysteries" and it was about aliens. The next day I came home from school and was terrified to go in the house because I just KNEW the aliens were waiting for me. After tip-toeing around for a while, I finally went in the house. It left my mind for a little while until I heard a noise (the house creaked) and I freaked out! I called my mom at work and told her that the aliens were there to take me away. Needless to say, she wasn't too happy with me!

I remember watching the evening news on tv as a young child when the top story was, "Illegal Aliens." I was so scared. I ran and told my mom that space aliens from Mexico are now here in America.

When I was a child, my dad convinced me that, as a baby, he and my mom found me next to a space ship crash. The ship was from Geekatron, therefore making me a geek. He would occasionally take me out into the woods to show me the "crash site" (a huge fallen tree) and, while watching "War of the Worlds," I got so upset I cried when he told me it was a documentary about the war that killed my "real" parents.

My friend in kindergarten told me that if you thought about aliens, they'd sense it and come take you with them. She also told me she'd seen a spaceship in the mountains over our village and that they were watching us. I was really scared. Every time I accidentally thought about aliens, I'd be terrified that they would come and kidnap me. Come to think of it, I still feel a bit wary whenever I think about aliens...

I used to be mortally terrified of the aliens in the tv series "alien nation". For those who don't remember it, they looked human except they had no ears and they were bald with spotted scalps. Something about this made me sick when I was little. I didnt even know what they were from, I'd just see them on tv for a split second and start crying.

In fifth grade, my friend Cheryl and I told everyone at school that we were aliens. We'd been sent to Earth as infants, we said, to be raised in an Earthling culture and collect information. Now the experiment was over, and our real parents were going to come in their spaceship next Tuesday night and take us back to our home planet.

No one believed us, but I think we did have several people convinced that we believed it ourselves.
