ten random beliefs
When I was little I somehow got the belief that if someone vomited they vomited the colour of their hair. Don't know where that idea came from
As children, my best friend (who will remain anon because he is now a respected Engineer) tried to convince me that raising the seats on our bicycles actually made them heavier, because there is more metal showing.
At the ocean's horizon there was a giant waterfall.
My mother would put quaters into the shopping carts at Superstore. For a period of a couple of years, the Canadian Mint put out a new batch of coins each month with a special design on them. You were supposed to collect them and my mom did. She never let me put any of the coins with special designs into the shopping cart slots because she belived that you didn't get the same quater back. I once spent an afternoon convincing her that the quater you put in was the quater you got back. She still doesn't belive me.
in third grade I had a friend/crush (you could even consider him a boyfriend, since we did have play dates :) and I heard a rumor that he liked another girl named Lauren. he was really smart so I figured that he and his friend spied on me and Lauren at night with an X-Ray Telescope that he invented, so he could figure out which of us he liked better, based on whether we slept with a stuffed animal, et cetera! The X-Ray Telescope could see through my roof and my covers, so I was really self conscious about, say, taking my pajamas off at night. Even when we weren't friends anymore, I still thought he was watching me, up until fifth grade when he moved away!
My Dad told me that the milk in coconuts was monkey wee. I believed him, not considering how on earth the monkeys would go about such an operation.
When I was little I used to have the habit of sticking my hand up inside vending machines, trying to reach the candy.
One day my mom told me that I shouldn't stick my arm up into the machine, because there were little men inside who dispensed the candy, and if I put my arm up inside far enough, they would grab me, pull me in, and I would forever spend my life as a vending machine worker.
To this day (I'm 22 now) I still have to get someone to reach into the vending machine pockets to fish out whatever I purchase.
I used to believe that dried cylindrical hay bails in fields was where shredded wheat came from and the frosted kind happened when the cows dropped milk on them.
I got a mouth full of ocean water in my mouth when I was three or four, and quickly asked my parents who put the salt in the water. I also developed my own theories. I used to believe that the reason why the ocean was salty is because people would lean off the docks and pour table salt in the water.
I used to belive that 100% air humidity means, air is that humid that it is actually water and therefore the regarding region is completely underwater.
