Hi. I'll get right to the point. When I was in 3rd grade, I was surfing the web, and found this video about Internet Safety. On this, it showed all the guys that betray you on the internet, blah blah blah. They called these the "wizzyWugs" (That's supposed to be scary?!) And one of these was "Follow-You Fiona", who looked like a cross between Lord Vauldemort and Micheal Jackson, but she had a nose. And she was sooooo creepy to me. So, for days, I was afraid that she would sneak up to my house and steal me away, (My parents said she tricks you into giving personal info, including your address) and, finally, my computer teacher told me that I had to GIVE her the info first. I thought she already knew! I told my husband, and he said his cousin had the same experiance.

Too afraid to give information (;

I used to believe cement mixers were big monsters pretending to be cars. From the rear, it looked like they had angry, evil faces. I thought they were holding toxic waste inside for some nefarious purpose, and that they drove themselves- no drivers necessary.

The house where I grew up was in a town near a military base. At times they had drills where they had planes drop shell, the sound of which sounded like loud steps by the time they reached my neighborhood. Until age 12 at least I was convinced when I heard it that it was dinosaurs coming... I grew up in the 90s and Jurassic Park was big, what can I say... The sound and vibrations were IDENTICAL as in the movie!

When I was a considerably younger I would see the giant oil drills on road trips. When I inquired to what they were my father informed me that they were giant Grasshoppers that ate cars.

I am 19 now and I still cant look at an oil drill without feeling afraid. Thanks Dad.

There is an amusment park near my hometown and around Halloween they have a haunted graveyard and you go at night and you go through the graveyard and it supposed to bge scary. When I was about four, I felt I was brave enough to go. My parent wouldn't let me, so my dad told that if I went, a monster hand would come out of the ground and pull me under and I would never come out.

I believed him for years. I was terrified.

I used to believe pencil shavings were the key to bringing clay creatures to life. My best friend and I made a point to volunteer for the positions in school which emptied the pencil shavings from the sharpener, then secretly stash them away and bring them home to animate a small clay monster we hid in the basement.

It never worked out as we planned.

When I was a kid, my parent told me not to point in the dark because if I accidentally point at a creature of the night, it will haunt me.

when I was about 5 my big sister told me that mermaids were actually evil - with red eyes, sharp claws and pointed teeth. She said that they could swim into the pipes from the ocean and sneak up on you unawares while you were in the shower or on the toilet to attack. I would only have baths for the longest time because that little drain would OBVIOUSLY block out this big scary monster :)

You know that little foot with wings on it for good year tires? When I was younger, I thought it was a monster, or something other than a foot with wings, and I didn't figure it out until a friend told me it was a foot, not an evil monster. I was eight. Sometimes now I still see that weird monster thing.

I saw the movie Amazon Women On The Moon at a very early age, and for years I thought Jack the Ripper really /was/ the Loch Ness Monster.

when i was younger i used to believe that monsters got their power from the darkness, so that's why they lived in dark places like wardrobes, under the bed, in attics, in garages, in cuboards and basements. and i was so terrierfied of going to places like that on my own that i armed myself with my toy sword. and turned on the light because i believed monsters hated light because it weakened them and if they didn't get out the way fast enough it killed them. but even though now i know they don't exist, i'm still a bit scard of the dark.

when my mum used to put me to bed she'd also tidy my room, closing drawers and wardrobe doors, I used to think the reason for this was to stop any monsters escaping and getting me,
I made my twin sister sleep in the bed next to the door so if any monster came in they'd get her first and i could run away (of course i never told her this)
even now if i'm in bed and i've left the wardrobe open I have to get up and close it, i think my husband leaves them open on purpose to laugh at me.

I used to believe that the "booger man" would come bite off your fingers if you picked your nose. (my grandpa told us that) he lost his fingers in a work related injury and told us that is how he lost his fingers!
