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

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 told my little sister that E.T. lived in my grandmother's room and he would come and get her if she wasn't careful. She would run past that room to get to hers.

I thought that the Mexican illegal aliens were aliens from space who were dressed up like Mexicans. Just like what I saw in Men In Black.

When i was 6 i would look out of the window every night (even today i still look out the window, it's soothing to me). One i saw all these lights in the sky, one every 2 mins. I was so convinced that these were alien aircrafts and so i scream, DAD WERE BEING INVADED BY ALIENS! QUICK DAD DO SOMETHING! My dad played along with it and didn't even think to explain to me what they really were. He told me if i went to go to sleep they wouldn't attack. I believed him and so i did. For years i believed that these lights in the sky were aliens out looking for me (for some odd reason) and so whenever i saw them i'd run to bed, i even had nightmares about this. It wasn't until i was 10 that i realised that they were airplanes coming into land at the nearby city airport. LOL

When I was young, we moved to the country. Whenever farmers fertilized the fields, I was convinced that aliens had landed and released toxic nerve gas that only affected your nose. I told no one, afraid they would take me if I squealed.

In fourth grade, there was a kid in our class who insisted he was Martian. This went on all year. One day, playing this game of forcing people into the "Kootie Box" (a painted rectangle on an outside schoolwall), we all pushed the kid into the Kootie Box and he bumped his head. He promptly grew an egg sized and shaped lump in the middle of his forehead (he was not otherwise injured). For years afterward, my friends and I were convinced he was telling the truth.

When I was small, my friend told me that if you had two radios in the same house tuned to the same station, you could summon aliens to the house. It has yet t work, but I haven't given up trying.

When I was a kid I believed that I was one of many locked in tiny rooms where the walls, floor and ceiling were like big tv screens that made up a world around me, people and objects were like holograms.. I was always in the middle of the room and was never gonna get out, and that there were aliens monitoring our reactions to then take over the earth knowing exactly what humans would do... I still haven't found a reason why it couldn't be possible

I used to believe that if I didn't turn my light out at night, aliens would see the light from space and come and abduct me.

When I was little I used to love playing with an old radio (making strange noises). My little sister was convinced I was in a conspiracy with aliens.

While on my way home from school one day I found a copper box the size of an old matchbox. I took it to my grandfather who told me it was an Alien Spaceship and that I should never open it. Forty-five years later, I still have the box and have never opened it afraid that I might let the Aliens out.

I used to think that my family were all aliens and they were trying to trick me into believing that they were humans. I was afraid that they were going to take me to their mother ship.

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.

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.
