ten random beliefs
When I was young, I thought chickens laid nuggets, just like they lay eggs. I was horrified when my cousin told me the truth.
When I was a child, for quite some time I believed that there had been an enourmous disaster in the world in which everyone had been killed, I thought that I was the last human boy left and that all the other people were robots that had been created so that I would grow up in a natural environment to perpetuate the human race. (I was certain that there was one last real girl left somewhere as well) I used to sit my mother down, look her straight in the eyes and tell her, 'I know what you are, you can stop pretending. I worked it out.' Needless to say she told me it was all rubbish. Or was she just pretending... ;)
I used to hit golf balls out into the field behind my house when I was about 4. I hit a ball so hard once that when me and my dad went out to look for it he secretly picked it up and threw it in the air, called my name and said look, and then proceeded to catch the golf ball. I believed that I had hit the ball so hard that it stayed in the air for the full 5 minuets.
When I went to tell my mother she called me stupid. =(
When my little brother came home from the hospital, his eyes were closed and I thought he had no eyes. (Iguess it was the first time I saw anyone with his or her eyes closed.)
when i was a kid, i believed the news far too literally. when the news reporter said "a man is helping police with their enquiries" i thought a nice bloke had gone to the police station on his day off, with notepad and pen, and said offered to carryout interviews.
I used to believe the tails of Airplanes cut open the clouds and made it rain. One would always fly over just as it started to rain...later I found out we were on a landing flight path, and they always flew over...
I used to believe that Celtic had an age-old rivalry with Queens Park Rangers.
Imagine my humiliation when, at the age of 20, and pretending to know about football, I had to be informed that there was a Glasgow Rangers. And that Celtic did not have a (frankly weird) thing against the London club QPR.
When I was young I wanted to be in the navy and so I asked my sister how I could get in the navy. She said that everyone in the nave ate cat food to stay strong. So she put some cat food in a little baggie and I ate several bags.
when i was 5 my mum always used to tell me never to touch the toilet cleaners cos it was very dangerous and toxic...so when she used to clean the toilet and i could see the the bleech in the toilet i thought it would be dangerous if i peed cos my pee would mix with the chemicals and cause an explosion or some sort, when i finaly did pee i would jump off the toilet an flush really quickly soon after i realised that nothing actually happened and it was safe to pee, i never told my mum till years after and she couldnt stop laughing when i finaly did.
My friend told me once that when she was little she went to a public toilet and saw blood in the toilet. She ran out to tell her mother that she was convinced someone had been murdered and the body was hidden in the cupboard in the cubicle wall.
