I started considering suicide when I was eight years old.
In private, I would whisper to myself, "I wish I was dead", but was always careful not to say it out loud, for fear a leprechaun might appear out of nowhere & grant my wish.

In retrospect, probably my first foray into the irony of this existence...

That I could jump off the garage roof with an umbrella, and float down like Jiminy Cricket (Thanks again, Todd!)


When I was a kid, we had a tree in our yard that had big, soft, floppy leaves on it.  I'm not sure what kind of tree it was.  Anyway, me and my friend used to pull off a bunch of leaves, hold them in our hands, and flap them like wings as we jumped off the picnic table.  We never flew very far.  Incidentally, I also tried to teach my sister how to jump out of that tree without getting hurt . . . and I fractured my wrist.

I'm still convinced that would work if you could just find an umbrella that wouldn't turn inside out.

I also beleived that if an earwig got into your ear-it would crawl into your brain and lay eggs-thanks to an old episode of "Night Gallery" for that little nightmare.


I was horrified a few years later to learn in school earwigs actually did exist! They were those funny-looking bugs I'd seen all my life. I was convinced one was gonna crawl in my ear and lay eggs - if the Bigfoot who lived in the half acre of woods next to our house didn't get me first.

There actually was a famous April Fool's Day hoax broadcast on the BBC back in the 50s about the trials and tribulations of spaghetti farmers.

when I was very young I used to think that when a man and woman got married, the woman had to have a baby on the day of the wedding
When we got married, my 4 year old nephew thought we'd be handed a baby, and was scared the baby would have to sleep with him.

Where I grew up, there was an spot that eople had piled up old trees, tires, and other things and dumped a huge mound of dirt on top of it all, making sort of a odd shaped small hill.  As a kid, we all called that the Devil's Den and thought that if you could dug into it, you could dig a tunnel to hell.

I thought Fruit Gushers, the candy, would turn your head into a giant piece of fruit.

It did in the commercials, so I was always too scared to try it.

If you swallowed a watermelon seed watermelon plants would crow out of your ears.

I still have an unconscious fear of swallowing any kind of seeds, and pick them out of watermelons, cantelope, tomatoes, etc.

Our mother used to look in our ears and once in awhile scold one of us for " y'got potatoes growing in your ear".   It always made us laugh... and later I used to wonder... potatoes must start out pretty small.  .   .   Buggedout Lookingup Twirling

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
