Silly ideas as a child

As I was growding up I really believed that if I pulled the blankets over me, covering every part of my body, then the Bogey Man living under my bed could not get me.
You have some silly ideas like that?

I used to believe I was on a secret TV (this was decades before the Truman Show)

Yeah,it was Freddy for me which i was not supposed to watch but I managed anyway. There was a scene where he turns into a giant,pulls the sheet off the guy and walks him as a puppeteer with the guys veins being the strings...yeah,i was covered under blankets holding on tight for a while after that馃槀

I believed animals were inferior to humans, and were incapable of knocking things over or affect anything physical...then my cat knocked the tv onto the concrete floor

yes, pretty much exactly that. that theme is actually in many movies, i wonder if anyone has ever done a study on this behavior.

[@9310,reflectingmonkey] I vividly remember going through that stage. Being terrified that my feet/hands/ears would be eaten if uncovered

Hey it's not dumb, my sheets were my impenetrable shield of protection!

I had that exact idea! Any exposed skin meant instant death.
