i used to think that flies didn't eat food until i was like 8
I used to think that the praying mantis was related to the katydid!
I used to believe that earwigs lived on earwax, and that they would crawl into my ear canal and eat my brain.
i used to think that black widow spiders wher spiders whos husbands died so they were widows and they allways wore black cos they were sad.
I used to believe that ladybugs and fireflies ate salami, so everytime I caught one I would put it in a jar with a slice of pepperoni. The bugs weren't too happy, neither was my mom who found the jar later on under my bed. Bug abuser!!!
I used to think that black widow spiders lived under my covers, but ONLY at night when i was under them, and I would be scared they were going to crawl up my legs at night when i wasnt looking.
I used to think that slugs were just snails who had lost their homes!
As a child I always used to think that an earwig could crawl into your head through your ear and eat your brain
You know how in cartoons when someone is about to eat, they rub their hands together? Well, once when I was 3 I watched a fly up close and he did the same thing! I screamed and ran away because I thought it was going to eat me!
I Used To Believe That Butter Came From Butterflys!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
haha... i was around six or seven... i thought that mosquitoes grew into flies... weird..
I have a mate who still, at nearly 18 believes if a moth flies close to your eyes it will blind you with the powder. I have great fun throwing dead moths at him...:) (by the way, I'm just assuming thi isn't true as it's so stupid, if it is true, i apologise!!)
I thought that gnats were baby flies, then one day I found out about maggots. yuck
when i was younger i used to see moths flying around light bulbs and other lights etc. i used to believe that they thought that the lights were the moon and that a moths mission in life was to try and fly to the moon so this is why they spent so long flying into the lights.
I used to believe (no laughing please), that ants got suntan if you reflected the light on it from a magnifying glass.
When my friend was little she had a pet slug but she didn't know what to feed it so she went to her brothers for help. Upon asking what they ate they told her "slugs eat salt." She cried and cried when she found out slugs did not like salt!
i thought there was a huge sprider that hid just around the bend of the pipe and when i sat on the toilet it would come out and sink it's fangs into my bum.
this is kindof true.when we were younger my brother and i used to love drowning slaters in the backyard.but one day my brother did it in the baisin and then let the plug out and they all went down the sink.a while later i went to the toilet and i was just going to wash my hands when i saw that the slaters had crawled back up the drain.i thought they hed come for revenge for trying to drown them.so i flushed them back down.but for ages after that i always left the plug in the basin after washing my hands just so that they couldn't get back up.even today i still sometimes look down the drain before i wash my hands just to make sure they're not there.
When I was really, really little my dad had the original Star Wars films on video he got from a "friend" who lived on a boat (I think it was pirated as my dad and uncle fell about laughing at this point)and I was absolutely terrified of Jabba the Hutt. My dad, being a caring soul, told me that slugs were all Jabba's children and if I stepped on them anymore, Jabba would come and eat me. Strangely, I never remember slugs before this point ( must have been about 4), but I never stepped on any.
Dad had to explain he was only joking about Jabba about two years later when I freaked out because my cousin's dog was eating slugs.
I was playing in the dirt one day (being the little scraped-up kneed, tomboyish kid I was) And my dad came up to me and said that dirt was actually worm poop. I was so disgusted that I went to the bathroom to wash my hands (like 35 times) and then I ran up the stairs to go and cry on my bed. SERIOUSLY! I cried for about half an hour while my dad was trying to convince me that what he had said wasn't true....which I'm really not sure that it still isn't true...where DOES dirt come from,anyway??
