I used to believe that ants in an ant colony wore colonial style clothing because the only other colonies I knew of at the time were the American ones.

I used to believe that if you plucked a leaf off a bush and carefully removed all of the greenery, except for the main part of the leaf - I guess the stem of the leaf, that the stem would then turn into a caterpillar. It just seemed completely logical at the time. I used to walk home from school, creating caterpillars from overhanging trees and shrubs.

I used to believe that stepping on an ant made it rain thanks to my grandfather. After he told me this I promptly ran outside and stepped on the biggest ones I could find expecting to create a gigantic storm.

When I was young I was told that if gnats landed on you they laid thousands of eggs in your skin. Even if they just landed for a second, and that a month later they would all come flying out of your skin. I was terrified of the things

When i was four or five, i thought that there were little ants inside of a car air conditioner that blew air. when we turned it on high, it would blow harder. when we turned it on low, it would blow softer. and it had a group of friends that took over if he got too out of breath. haha ^^

1-i used to believe that humans were controlled by ants and they had a laboratory in your head and could see through your eyes and the more in shape your body was the more technology the ants had
2-i believed that if you droped your food once you could pick it up again and eat it but if you drop it again it was too nasty to eat it, i think its because when i was small when i asked my parents a question they were too busy and would answer yes or no so i would stop asking and ill actually believe them

When I was eight I became convinced butterflies stalked you because whenever I was outside one always seemed to be coming near me, and in the butterfly zone at the Bronx zoo on a class trip I was screaming (was afraid of ALL insects back then) because they all seemed to be following me and wouldn't go away.

When I was eleven it was DRAGONFLIES that I thought would stalk you.

Now I'm slooowwly getting over my fear of both those bugs (completely done with the fear of butterflies) and I still think they stalk you but I dun really care anymore.

Oh, and BEES stalk you too

When I was about eight I used to think that if you touched bug juice (insect blood), you would turn into a bug. I didn't know what it looked like back then, so I was kinda paranoid about it and avoiding everything that even looked vaguely like it even if it was just spilled drink turned dark from fading into fabric on the furniture or something.

There's bug juice on my ceiling right now

I used to ask how shoes became untied and my parents explained that it was ants who untied them while I was walking. Well after that I would always be checking my shoes for ants on the laces and I could never find them. I just thought they were very sneaky.

I used to have this twisted belief that if I was nice enough to a wasp, he might become my friend. He would talk to me, walk on my arm but never sting, and convince all his buddies to refrain from stinging when they landed on me or any member of my family.
