ten random beliefs
When I was younger my father told me that if I picked my nose my nostril would stretch to accommodate the size of my finger.
Lord knows I didn't want big holes in my nose so I stopped picking my nose.
As a kid, I used to believe that our parents could hear our thoughts. I was careful not to think of something they wouldn't like me thinking
I used to believe that all garbage bags on the side of the road were filled with kittens that people had thrown away. I think it originated from a Tom & Jerry cartoon. I would cry and beg my mom to stop and pick up the bags but I wouldn't tell her why. I thought she would refuse because we already had 2 cats. It was torture on road trips but mom just thought I was environmentally conscious.
One day, Mum caught my little sister playing with some of our Dad's things and exclaimed "If your father saw you doing that, he'd have kittens!" As soon as Dad (who's quite bug) got home that night, my sister ran to put her ear to his belly and, even years afterwards, was convinced that she could hear cats meowing and fighting in there!
when i was like 4 or 5 i used to believe that noodles were dried worms & when you boiled them they would come back to life & if u ate then they would live in you forever.
As a child I used think if I jumped too high on a trampoline I'd be sucked up into outer space.
When it's twighlight, your vision goes sort of grainy. I used to believe that this was because I could see air molecules.
From age 3 to about 6, when people said, "shut the door, you'll let a draft in," I thought drafts were huge, stealthy, pale-grey bats that must be kept outside at all costs.
When i was younger I thought "the speed of light" was the time taken for the lights to come on after you had pressed the switch.
I concluded that is was pretty quick, and that flourescent tubes were slower than ordinary bulbs
I used to believe that the whole world blacked out everytime I blinked. When I was about 4 I forced my whole family to close their eyes all at once and was amazed when the lights didn't go out.
