ten random beliefs
I was certain chocolate orange's had been banned, which is why I got scared of the advert and the fact I was recieving them as Christmas presents, very worrying for a small child.
Of course, it turns out, it was the Clockwork Orange which was banned (and it wasn't even banned after all that...)
At about age 7 I thought one could see the people running around on a map, if one looked hard enough.
not only did i think a hypotenuse was an animal, but i also thought that a hyperbole (pronounced "hyper-bowl") was a cousin of a hypotenuse or something. they were all in the hippopotamus family.
I got tricked into believing that singing a certain song would blow up certain parts of the mountain. How else could they have made those huge stone quarries?(i remember it was a kinda catchy melody and the text being like... |||:Blow up the mountain :|||, HEY!
When i was little, my parents would always stop when we drove underneath bridges on the highway. They had me convinced that the noises of the cars above us were really dinosaurs. I believed that for the longest time.
When I was little my dad was stationed in Okinawa, and whenever he would come back, he'd tell me about how he'd have lunch with Godzilla. I firmly and solidly believed this, and would tell my friends at school. I even threw a rock at a 6th grader for saying my dad made it up!
I grew up with a cardiovascular condition that required open heart surgery. My parents took me to the doctor for a check-up and I started screaming like a raving lunatic. I got covered in sweat and started crying and my brother even swears I pee'd on myself. My parents finally calmed me down and asked what was wrong. My brother told me that when I went into the doctor's office he was going reach into my chest and pull out my heart, fix it, and then put it back in. He had seen it on one of those Indiana Jones documentaries our father watched...
When I was a kid, I used to believe that the actors on tv would run from one channel to the next as you changed the channel. I guess I figured they were really little people running around inside my tv set.
When I was four, my dad's best friend told me that the black olives on his pizza were cockroaches (to keep me from eating his pizza - how much pizza could a four year old eat?). To this day, I can't eat black olives.
I used to believe that if you ate eggs for breakfast everyday you'd get pregnant...
