ten random beliefs
When I was 4 or 5 years old, I always thought that there was a guy wearing a bandana who lived behind the curtain next to my bed and he would get out in my sleep and tickle me to death. Sometimes I even found him in my dreams.
I played Chrono Trigger (Best game of all time, if ya haven't played it, get the DS remake now) a lot as a kid, and I was terrified because I thought Lavos really would come and destroy the world in 1999. When the year 1999 did come, I was panicking because I knew that any day Lavos would awaken. But then when 2000 came and I didn't die, nor become a survivor in a dystopian world, I was utterly confused. Then it came to me! Crono and friends defeated Lavos!
When I lived in Korea, and my family was about to move to the States a friend of mine told me that people in the States ate weird things and one of the things they ate was monkey meat. Since I was born in the year of the monkey, I was afraid that they would try to eat me, and I tried to keep my family from moving to the States.
I used to believe computer viruses were same as biological viruses.I thought that is why computers were kept in air conditioned rooms to prevent them from being attacked by these ' viruses'.
I used to feel really sorry for poor old Will. In every war/movie/cowboy movie I ever saw, some nasty man would shout "Fire at Will!!!"
I wondered why he would agree to appear in so many movies if he knew he was going to be shot at......
Broken bones meant that your arm or leg was separated from your body.
I lived in California during the 1994 Northridge earthquake. We had seen houses with chimines that had fallen in. I had feared that my grandparents home in NY had the same problem. EARTH quake..the whole earth quakes!!
My dad used to say that the rats in the sewer are having a party when he had a pee when he got drunk,cause there was alcohol in his pee. I believed it so much that every time he said it, I went and threw lots of peanuts and crips down the loo. Well, no party without nibbles..!!!! I was only about 4 or 5.
When I was a kid, I thought all bishops moved diagonally.
When I was younger, I thought that stores that displayed Help Wanted signs were encouraging people to help criminals wanted by the law. I always felt very roguish shopping at these stores.
I didn't realize that the signs meant that the store was hiring until I was about 10 years old.
