ten random beliefs

in early elementary school years, I would always notice other's people's desks were shiner, and reflected what was above them.
I would always get sad when I saw my desk wasn't reflective like all theirs.
I thought that meant I wasn't as awesome as them or something was wrong with me...
until I found out the other desks looked reflective because they were at an angle, and since I was always sitting in front of mine, it was never at the right angle ^^;

When I was about 4 or 5, I was grocery shopping with my Mom, we were at the register putting the groceries on the "conveyor belt" and I noticed that my mom kept grouping the items she put up there in order, like all the frozen juices together, the tin can stuff in a group, the fruit together, the meat all together... I asked her why she was doing that and the CASHIER told me that if we DIDN'T group the foods together like that, the police would come and arrest us --- I believed her of course, and to this day I think about it EVERY SINGLE TIME I put my groceries up on the conveyor (with the items grouped PROPERLY, of course)!

When I was a wee lass, I thought that the big blue and white "H" signs on the side of the road indicated the burial place of a famous horse. It of course leads you to a hospital.

When I was about 5 or 6, I thought that when the police told you to put your hands up, that they were going to shoot you in the armpits. I often thought about how much that would hurt. I was about 11 or 12 when I realized it was so that they could make sure you weren't going to pull a gun or something on them.

I used to think that euthanasia was a charity for little Indian kids. I would always hear people go "down with euthanasia" and wonder what people had against little Indian kids
