ten random beliefs

I grew up in Texas and when I heard someone was "sentenced to death" I thought that they'd been forced to write the same sentence over and over again until they died, since one of my teachers at school made us write sentences on the blackboard when we were bad.

I used to believe that pepper created actual heat.
so one day when I didn't want to go to school, I ate about 2 tablespoons of pure ground black pepper, and told my mom I was sick and to take my temperature.

She told me as red as my face was, my temperature was fine.

My mom used to always tell me not to stay out in the sun too long or I'd get dark, so I made the genuis asumption that if the sun made you darker the moon made you lighter. For a whole summer I would play in the sun all day then wait until my parents fell asleep and sit outside for a few hours determined to "undo" the darker tone i gained from playing all day.

When I was a small child, I used to love to watch Godzilla movies. I thought they were like documentaries and I felt so sorry for all those people in Japan who kept getting attacked by Godzilla and the other monsters. I also worried about the day that they eventually made it over to California (where I live) and attacked us. I guess my parents should have talked to me more.

When I was younger I asked my mom why you had to go slow past a school (school zones) and she told me it was in case a kid ran out in front of the car you would be able to stop quick enough to get out and spank them. I was VERY careful not get off the sidewalk when I was at school for a long time after that!
