ten random beliefs

When I was a kid I remember hearing about and watching rockets being sent into space. I asked my mum about it and she explained that they were learning stuff about space so they sent someone up there to look around, but it cost a lot of money and could be dangerous.

For years I couldn't understand why they didn't just ask superman to go have a look for them.

I used to think that after it rained if I stepped on a puddle and made footprints scooby-doo would come and follow them as a "clue"

When I was about three or four I saw a skeleton on TV. My dad told me I had one inside me. I freaked, screaming 'I'M A SKIN BOY' over and over.

I thought I was solid skin all the way through.

In 1999 my older brother told me that in the year 2000 all the computers would go down, all the planes in the sky would crash (right on my street... of course), and all the animals would escape from the zoo and giraffes and elephants would be running down the streets. On New Year's Eve I was so scared I could barely think straight! He also told me that the world would end in 1998. I got so upset and wasted another New Year's Eve worrying.

When I was a kid, the song "I fought the Law" (I'm not sure who sang it) but I went years beliving it was "I fought the log, and the log one." I thought it was about a lumberjack.

When I was younger I used to believe that all the streetlights were controlled by small people inside the light. I actually thought each light (red, yellow, and green) had a person sitting behind a desk operating it and when lights weren't working I thought the people either didn't show up for work or got the day off. Silly me

When my husband was about 4 years old he asked his great grandma "you were around at the time of dinosaurs,what was it like?" The whole family fell off their chairs laughing!

When I was about 5, I thought body shops were where people when when they broke an arm or leg. I imagined racks of arms and legs hanging from the ceiling. If you broke something, you went to the body shop and they replaced it. The cast was because it was healing together. I was terrified because they looked to be such filthy places and I couldn't imagine that car bodies were important enough to have whole shops named for them.

I believed that if you left a electric plug socket on the house would catch fire BUT if you rubbed toothpaste into the wall around it, you'd be safe.

When I was younger I used to belive that bats were imaginary.

This was because the only place I had ever seen them was in Scooby Doo cartoons!

I was actually mid-teens before I realised that they were real.
The only way I found out was by watching a wildlife documentry on TV, I was very disappointed when I saw them because I had always imagined them to be the size of a seagull!!
