dead astronauts.

A few hundred years ago, we had a local custom in my part of Sweden (probably more widespread than that even) to pick up rocks whenever you were out walking. These rocks came in handy in case you passed an unbaptized childs grave. Whenever you passed it you added your rock to the pile of rocks on top of the grave, to prevent the child from digging its way back to the surface.

I can sort of relate to those kids.
