I used to believe that insects came from raindrops. Why? My Dad told me so. I had an arguement with my primary school teacher over it, and even her clever use of fact and logic wasn't enough to convince me my dad had fibbed.

my parents told me that santa hired elves that made cookies and built toys and they lived among us (i had discovered my uncle was dressed as santa one year) and so my aunt and uncle were secret "elves" and that was how there were so many santas in so many shopping malls, because the elves relayed the information back to headquarters. i couldn't believe i had elves in my family.
