ten random beliefs
This isn't me, it's something my younger brother thought:
A couple years ago, my brother said that he liked our grandma's TV, because it had a bigger screen than our one. Why was that so good? He thought that smaller-screened TVs didn't show all the picture, some of it got chopped off. He had lived about 7 years in a house that has a few various-sized TVs and never noticed that the picture got smaller on smaller TVs.
My cousin and I are 11 days apart. She and I were always competing in everything together. As we started to develop, a friend of the family told us, if we ate a lot of carrots our boobs would grow. According to the friend, that was why carrots were pointy. My cousin and I would eat a bag of baby carrots every day or 2. To this day our ongoing joke is that she must have ate more carrots than me.
When I was little, I heard my mother talking to my grandmother about recipes.My grandmother gave my mother a recipe for Shepherd's Pie, one that she got from her mother, my great grandmother.
Now, my great grandmother's last name was Shephard, so for years I thought that her family invented it! That was, after all, why it was named "Shephard's Pie."
Of course, when I found out other families had it too, I was a bit confused. How could they have our family recipe? All sorts of stories went through my head. My mind eventually settled on that my great grandmother had sold the recipe a long time ago, not realizing how popular it would be, and it became really famous. It wasn't spoken of in my family because they were probably bitter they could have become rich off it.
It wasn't until years later that I found out the truth of it being an old English dish, and most likely had nothing to do with my family.
My brother (older) used to tell me that if I stayed under water long enough that when I ran out of air in my lungs that I could breathe through my pancreas! Well, I tried one day at the public pool, while my brother held me under water. I never struggled, as I believed him as I inhaled my first lungfull of water. After I was "brought back" by the lifeguard I really believed that the only reason that I survived was that I was breathing through my pancreas. I told everybody!
Atomatic toilets had people inside of them watching to see when you are done.
I USED TO THINK ALL GOTHS WERE GHOSTS AND THEY WERE SAD BECOUSE THEY COULD'NT FIND THEY'RE WAY TO HEAVAN.
When I would hear cricket scores from an overnight session and they would announce 'Australia lost two wickets overnight'....I thought the actual wickets (stumps) were getting stolen and always wondered how they played the game when they only had three wickets left.
I used to believe that God lived in the men's room of my childhood church. This was mainly due to my Sunday School teacher telling our class that he lived at our church, and my not being able to find him in any other room. The only room I couldn't enter was the men's room, so I assumed that because I didn't see him anywhere else, that's where he must live. I think I was 6.
Cutting crew- I just died in your arms tonight...
I just died in your arms tonight, it must have been some kind of cheese. I should have walked away.
Must have been a really pungent stilton.
I don't want to know what the real lyrics are, it'll spoil my the bad stilton experience in my head.
I used to believe that when the radio dimmed a little when driving throught a tinnel, it was so blind people who were driving didnt crash into the sides.
i think i might have been dropped as a child...
