weeing & pooingShow most recent or highest rated first.
When I was young, my mother used to ask us kids if we had done a 'BM'. It was my belief that BM stood for body manure. Horse did horse manure and cows did cow manure, so naturally we did body manure. It wasn't until, I embarassed to say, a hospital stay, that I figured it to be bowel movement.
I believed the handicap symbols on parking spaces were actually pictures of someone sitting on a toilet. So I thought that you were allowed to relieve yourself in that spot. Even though I thought this was quite odd I believed it for many years!
I certainly hope nobody finds this racially offensive. As a child, I thought that black people had pink poo.
I'd rather not get into the rationale behind that - to this day, I can't figure out why I thought that.
Because schools required the students to tell teachers where they were at all times, I grew up with the belief that in order to go to the washroom/toilet, you had to ask the teacher or parent first. This proved a problem one night when I was in bed and my parents were in the living room. I needed to GO, but my parents couldn't hear my question being asked. I gradually increased my volume until I screamed out and my parents came rushing in (I think they thought I was getting kidnapped or something) only to find me doing the bathroom dance.
I was a funny kid. xD
Growing up as a child I was unaware of the fact that men peed standing up. It wasn't until i was in Jr. High when a friend dared me to run in and out of the boys bathroom that I first saw a urinal. At first glance I thought that the urinal was a special type of sink that boys required. It wasn't until months later when my mother got my dad in trouble for leaving the toilet seat up yet again, did I have the curiosity to ask what the big deal was. It was then that she explained to me how it was that men peed. I felt like a complete idiot having believed the boys and girls pee sitting down.
I use to believe that...Boys keep their poo and wee in their scrotum.
I used to believe that you had a big bottom if you didn't poo enough, that the bottom cheeks held all the poo , so needless to say I used to sit on the toilet for ages
I'm too young to remember, but my mother has told me that the first time I used the toilet properly I got really upset when she flushed my poo away and I cried because I hadn't said goodbye to it.
I used to think that when I peed into the nature and flowers would later grow there, that I would then be partly in those flowers. I hated to go pee on the toilet, because I didn't want to live in the toilent...
A big part of me still thinks this way...
I used to believe that pee was stored inside your body in a cup, and if you had to pee really bad you should stand up very straight and walk very slow as to not "spill" any, which is what caused you to pee your pants.
I used to beleive that girls only pooped out of their vaginas and they did not have bums.
I used to believe that boys pooed out their penis. Sometimes, i still do.
My mom used to say, "If you sit on the pot too long, a worm willo grow in your stomach!" To this day, I am not sure if that's true or not. I'm 26.
When I was in the first grade, a kid told me that if you don't wash your hands after using the restroom, you'll die from the germs on your hands. Up untill the third grade I always held my penis with my shit tail while urinating.
I was told that if I sat on hot concrete, like a sidewalk, that it would be very difficult to take a poop. I think my grandmother told me that.
My brother used to be scared to poop in the potty. He thought that he was pooping out his bones.
i used to think when boys pee that sit like girls until i saw a boy pee standing up.
Whever I flatulated in front of my mother, she would ask me, do I have to go to the pot. So I thought it was the feces making all that noise up there.
I used to believe that everybody had different colored pee. Mine was yellow. My older brother told me his pee was green.
I first encountered the word "rectum" in connection with having a thermometer put in there. That convinced me that I had a special hole there, specifically dseigned for having my temperature measured. That was clear to me for quite some time while I still only vaguely realized that poopoo somehow happened in that same general vicinity, without being at all sure that it came out exactly where the thermometer went in. Later when I became clear exactly where my doodoo comes out, I learned the word "anus" in association with that. Realizing eventually that the same hole is involved with both, I thought the two words were function-specific: that it was my anus for purposes of pooping but my rectum for purposes of temperature measurement. Later when I learned of a creation vs. evolution controversy, part of the foucs I thought of when contempleting it was as a question of whether God made my rectum as a a special place just to put a thermometer, or whether my anus evolved as a hole where I could doodoo. Guess it was more comfortable at the time, when thinking of any creator God, to think of him as an enabler of temperature-taking rather than as an enabler of crap-taking.
