A new born baby's skin is still porous, you can just leave them sitting in a bucket of blood and they'll soak up what they need.

Oh what really scared me as a child were the BIG BLACK BOX WARNING game genie codes that said WARNING THESE CODES MIGHT PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR GAME and they happened to also be the Mario Bros. 3 Sledgehammer Suit code so it was basically like the Nerconomicon, a tome of forbidden knowledge that would grant amazing power but at what price
I was super afraid of accidentally putting in a code and having everything fuck up. FOREVER

I know my last visit to my grandpa on his deathbed was to find out how the whole Nazi werewolf thing turned out.

When I was very young I would scream and run away whenever my sister showed me this album cover:
Of course, now that I'm an adult I have that reaction to all Wings albums.

About 20 minutes later I'm screaming at the top of my lungs and crying uncontrollably because it was Watership Down

When I was like three or four, I didn't know what football shoulderpads or microphones and PA systems were, so every time a football game would come on, I thought it was like an army of giant beastman fighting each other while these other guys in stripes occasionally yelled at everyone with the voice of god.

I will always remember one particular short that they showed on TV when I was a kid.
So, it's a stop-motion thing (which already is extra uncanny valley points). About a moon man who lives on the moon. With long arms and needle fingers. And who, during the night, comes down from the moon with a rope, sneaks into windows, and plucks out children's eyeballs while they sleep with his needle fingers before going back to the moon. The kids wake up the next morning with empty eye sockets, blind and screaming.
My cousin and I refused to sleep at night for a week after that thing.
Also, Jurassic Park velociraptors caused me to carefully look up for jumping raptors before going past a flight of stairs for years.
