ten random beliefs
As a 7 or 8 year old, I knew that water was a good conductor of electricity. I also knew that lightening was a deadly electrical source. Therefore, in my mind (was it told to me?), it was a big no-no to go pee in the toilet during an electrical storm because in some way the lightening could make its way up through the toilet through the water and then by extention . . . . I think you get the idea. During many a storm I found myself holding on until after the storm was over until I thought it was safe to go to the bathroom!
On the brief occasion I was bought a packet of Opal Fruits I'd be really sad if it contained lots of green ones as I thought they were lettuce flavour....
My brother kindly told me that I was so ugly my parents had to pay people to act behind 'mirrors' everywhere I went so that I would have a normal life and not know that I was hideously ugly. He also told me this was why our family was poor.
The first place I ever saw fireworks was Disneyland. When I saw the 4th of July fireworks in my town, I shouted "Disneyland! Disneyland's over there!" My mom tried to prove me wrong, but I was convinced that Disneyland was somehow picked up and moved into the hills in the distance where the fireworks were shot from.
I thought that ground turkey refered to turkeys grown underground. I wondered why they did that, as they only ever became little strips...
When I was about five or six, I thought the "Hazard" button on a car, if pressed while the car was in motion, would make the car do a jump ala "The Dukes Of Hazzard". I never got up the nerve to press it, though.
When i was little my grandma told me that if u didnt wash your ears properly then Roses would grow out of them.
So naturally I didnt wash my ears (ew) and tried to wash my hair without getting my ears wet.
about two weeks later my sister reminded me that roses has thorns after i boasted to her that i was going to have flowers in my ears.
I have never scrubbed my ears so hard in my life...
My brother and I thought that you burped before you died, so whenever we played dead we'd let out a huge belch and drop to the ground.
When I was little I used to watch "Seasame Street" all the time and one of the episodes Burt and Ernie are fishing. Burt is not catching anything oso ernie goes "Here Fishie fishie!" and a fish jumps in the boat. well I was out fishing with my dad and we were not catching any thing, so I do this and suddenly we are getting bites!!! to this day my dad will ask me to call the fishies in at random times.... I AM 26!!! .... still works though! lol
I used to believe that once you flushed the toliet the Rice Crispy Elves would come out of the toliet and attack you and force you to live with them in the sewer.
