I used to believe that if you were vaccuuming a patterend carpet, you couldn't leave the end of the hose in one place, otherwise it would suck the pattern off! I believed this up until I was about 21...

One evening we were all chatting in the kitchen, eating low fat yoghurt.. Once finished, my younger sister -who must have been 6 at the time- stood on a chair and eagerly asked: "Do I look thinner now?"

I used to believe that the numbers zero on a digital clock meant time had vanished. Because there was no time, I was also non-existent. The only way to survive the zeroes was to sleep through them. I was really afraid when I woke up and the clock showed 22.00, or worse, 0.29, or the worst of all worst things... 0.00!
We had also a calendar made of blocks you turned to show the right date, day and months. They obeyed the same rule. I used to turn them such that they showed 0, 0, blank (for the day of the week) and May (the shortest name for the month, such that it showed a maximum of white). I guess I wanted to cure my fear, but it never worked. I looked at it for a few seconds and then ran away and refused to come in the same room as the calendar until someone changed the numbers.
My sister eventually convinced me. The zeroes on the clock are little rectangles made by LEDs and have nothing in common with the real time!

When I was about 7 or 8, a friend of mine had to have "anti bionics", or so I thought it sounded. I couldn't work out why anyone would want to reduce Bionic strength (Steve Austin - Bionic Man!) as I figured it was a good thing to have.
