ten random beliefs
Before I knew about the various internal organs I thought people were just filled with some green slimy stuff called “guts”
When I was younger I used to believe that Albuquerque was in Japan, because my Japanese grandparents had a house there. This illusion was shattered when the pizza man came to the door and spoke english.... and was white.
My sister told me that, unless I did a song and a dance after I had a poo the Toilet Monster would come and get me...
the song went "Ugga Bugga Ugga Bugga Ugga Bugga Ug, Toilet Monster please don't come"
When I was about 5 years old, I used to get the eggs out of the refrigerator, take one out of the box and sit on them or hide them in the back of the couch. I always wanted a baby chicken, but mum wasnt happy when she had to remove at least 10 runny eggs from the lounge.
You know how every state has an official state seal? Until I was in SIXTH grade I thought that every state had a real seal (the animal) at their state capital.
being australian, i could never work out why in all the cartoons and movies the ducks would fly south for the winter. it would only get colder.
I used to think that the pools was a swimming competition.
When I was little I used to believe that a serial killer was a man who came to your house and crushed your cheerios. For years I used to check my cereal boxes everyday to see if he had come.
One day, when I was 11 and my brother was 8, he suddenly got appendicitis at about 3 in the morning and had to be rushed to the hospital for an appendectomy. My parents explained to me that if he didn't have this done, then his appendix would rupture inside him, to which I said, "Wow, I hope the doctors throw the appendix far, FAR away from here, so it doesn't go off inside and blow up the hospital!!!" I actually thought that my brother's appendix could still explode once it was out of him, sort of like a bomb. My parents explained to me that this wasn't the case. I was a very strange kid, lol.
I used to mis-hear dialogue in films, and then never question it for years. For a long time, when Alderan was blown up in Star Wars, I thought the disturbance in the Force that Obi-Wan reacted to was millions of OYSTERS that had cried out in terror.
