ten random beliefs
In the old house where I grew up there was pink insulation on the attic floor between the beams. My parents always told me not to step on it or I would fall through the ceiling. I thought it contained some sort of magic power to propel me upwards through the roof. I was disappointed to learn years later that they'd meant the ceiling of the floor beneath me!
As a six year old boy , I was very dissapointed and upset when I heard a boy call his brother by my name,Joe, I thought I was the only one in the world with that name.And to worsen things that other Joe looked very obnoxious to me.
the country of singapore was a giant white dormatory where everyone lived together.
i don't know where i came up with this one.
I use to believe that when you faxed someone something the paper would somehow travel through the machine through some wires and tunnels in the ground where workers would read it and laugh at the sender and into the next machine. The first few times I used a fax machine i would fold the paper I wanted faxed in half so that no one else coud read my message then fax it. It was a few months later, and many blank faxes before someone told me (amid laughter) how a fax machine worked.
When i heard the word "tornado" i thought that people were saying "tomatoe" and when i saw houses flattened by "tomatoes" i thought that big pieces of tomatoes dropped down on peoples houses.
When I was in like third grade I got a used Pokemon Saphire game because I lost my old one. I decided to play the existing file and was amazed at how good it was. He had every Pokemon, a bunch of level 100 legendaries, tons of rare candies, and 60 Master Balls. I was stupid and believed that he actually worked hard to catch every Pokemon and get level 100 legendaries, but I was stumped as to how he got the Master Balls, since there's only one in the game. I asked my friend and he said "The previous owner probably used Action Replay"
Since Action Replay is a cheating device where you insert codes, a lot like Game Shark. Anyway, since Action Replay at the time was a pretty new program, I of course, had no idea what it was and that it was like Game Shark, which I had heard of. I took the "replay" part of Action Replay literally and assumed it was a program that let you play any part of the game over and over again and what happened during those replays would affect your current data. So I thought that he replayed the part where you get the Master Ball 59 times to get 60 of them.
When I was little, the cartoons would sometimes show the characters sneezing because of breathing pepper that was in the air. I tried it myself by inhaling some to see if it would work. I spent the next 30 minutes with a wet towel up my nose because of the stinging. And no, I never sneezed.
When I was a little girl, my brother told me that the pieces of peel in orange marmalade were the chopped up remains of Fred and Freda - my dead goldfish! 20 years later I still won't eat orange marmalade...
when my dad was little boy his older sister told him that their cats nose was made out of rubber. he believed her without question until the day he tried to rub out a mistake in his jotter and got his arm lacerated by the cats claws and teeth.
When I was ten, I liked to think that there were shmozits living in my closet. Shmozits are creatures that I made up that have the head of a tapir, the tail of a fish, the wings of a bat and long, bushy fur on their stomaches and backs. Oh yeah, and they'd live in your closet. Their diet consists of fish and clothing. The sounds they would make would sound exactly like that of a harmonica.
