When I was little, a kid at school told me that if a bug goes up your nose and gets to your brain, it'll take over your mind.

The continuous buzzing noise heard outside, most often in raw nature, and sometimes in urban areas. Actually an insect, but thought to be 'the power lines.'

I realized this was infact not true last year when asking the boyfriend. "Honey... where is that sound coming from? There arent any power lines around...."

My brother from Texas brought his wife and two boys to visit one summer. The youngest (age 5)was fascinated with the chicken coop in the back yard. The coop was surrounded by these tall pine trees. So my mother and I took him inside the coop where the top of it was covered with pine needles. Once inside, he noticed a Praying Mantis on the side of the chicken wire and thought it was cool and went to touch it, my mother told him not to because the Mantis will "spit" at you and you'll go blind! Right at the moment, a pine needle fell from the chicken wire above us and grazed his cheek and my nephew went berserk! Screaming "I'm gonna go blind, I'm gonna go blind!"

My dad had an old-timer's saying, "If you wish to live and thrive, let a spider go alive." I took that to mean that if you squash a spider, you are in for a run of really bad luck!

Still wary of spiders

I used to believe that if I caught a butterfly, and rubbed the powder off his wings, I could rub the powder on my arms and then I would be able to fly (the poor butterfly sure couldn't, anymore!). And then, when I couldn't fly, I just figured that I hadn't got enough powder yet...

Because I used to play Pitfall as a kid, I always thought that scorpians were about as big as small dogs. It wasn't until a class trip to Mexico when I was 17 that I found out that they were not quite that large.

When I was very young, I was TERRIFIED of flies! No, not bees or wasps, but flies! I think I had mixed up bees/wasps up with flies, becuase I was always scared they'd hurt me. I'd cry everytime I saw one.

When I was about 7, I would catch flies and put them in a set of plastic drawers I had. I would put a soda bottle top full of water and a few of my little toys in with them, figuring they would have a party or make a city. Of course, once they died the next day I always wondered what I did wrong. I'd try to give them new toys, but they never lived.

I used to believe that the bumps that mosquito bites gave you were because the mosquitos crawled under your skin and curled up in a little ball. I hated to itch them because I could just imagine them very happy that I was scratching their backs, and I only wanted them gone.
