ten random beliefs
When I was 7 years old I thought that me, as a black person, would get lighter in the sun as a white person would get darker in the sun.
I used to believe that when you got scurvy you'd grow scales. I don't know why. my dad always told me to eat my oranges or else I'd get scurvy. I didn't eat an orange till I was about eight. I wanted to be a fish.
My sister told me that when you add water to hair, the hair turns into a water worm. She even demonstrated by plucking off a piece of my hair and turning the tap on in the sink. Lo and behold the hair started squirming! I didn't bathe for two weeks because I didnt want my hair to turn into hundreds of water worms!
I first saw Star Wars when I was seven. When the characters spoke about making the "jump to light speed" I instead heard them say "jungle light speed" and I assumed that light moved at a faster speed in jungles.
When I was a kid, I used to think toothpaste was made from teeth. It made sense - where else would you get all the minerals and other stuff teeth needed? Besides, fish paste was made from fish, and meat paste was made from meat...
Fireworks: sky was on fire
I was in Disneyland for the first time saw fireworks and kept hiding, asked mymom and she said fireworks, and i was like "how can people be so stupid not to call the firefighters if the sky is on fire.. and was really really terrified
I used to think that "tissues" in the body were like kleenexes and imagined the inside of my body stuffed with different types and colors of kleenex tissues and tissue paper.
I got told once by my friend that he knew someone who died by a hand that came up the toilet and pulled them in! Everytime i went toilet after that i would go armed with a Hammer from my Dad's toolbox. Waiting for the hand to appear... It never did appear! Funny That!
When I was a boy my grandfather told me that I could catch wild rabbits with salt. Needless to say his entire backyard was spotted with paper towels layed out filled with piles of salt. Did come close to catching one one time..LOL
I used to believe that when you blew a bubble and it floated out of sight before popping, it would turn into a planet.
