i use to believe that the resin you got buggers in your nose was that natts would fly up your nose and lay there eggs up there, making the buggers
When i was younger i used to believe that flea markets sold fleas and only fleas. I thought it was like a petland for fleas.
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.
i used to believe that in your nails whenever you scratched your head your nits got really deep into your nails they went to nitty heaven!!!!!! im gonna be 8 this year!!!!!
I thought that snails were created when it rained somehow as I only saw them when it rained.. I thought they came out of the sky.
when i was little i thought that locusts were alens. i went into my backyard one day and saw one on my playset and it was cumin out of its shell thing and it was all green and crap....i then ran inside yelling "ALIEN! ALIEN!" and my parents thought i was crazy until they saw wat i had seen lol
My sisters used to "call an ant hurricane" to me when she wanted something from me. So they said "oh mighty ants get me bother!" i would scream give them what the wanted.
(this is what my mom told me about when she was little) when she was watching tv, she would always think that the people inside were roachs that had crawled up inside and would dress up like people.....
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.
When I was little i use to belive that a aunt (the insecs) was my aunt Sarah.
i used to believe that bugs came out of canned bug spray
When I was young I used to think I was God for the ants as they couldn't see me, their sky was as far as my knees
I know this isnt a huge funny belief, but I used to think that all spiders were poisonous. I love spiders now!
As a kid in I think 5th-6th grade, I was already scared of spiders, but after reading a book with lots of information about them, I no longer feared having a web spun in my throat. However, I learned about an Australian spider called the funnel web that was supposed to be as deadly as a black widow. The book said if it bites you, you turn blue and then die within three days. Because of this, whenever I visited my aunt and uncle, I was constantly afraid for my life because there were funnel-shaped webs scattered around the lawn. Of course, they live in Montana, in the US, pretty far from Australia...
When I was younger, I was deathly afraid of spiders in general due to a story my brother told me, saying that "If you squish one of the little spiders, a big one will come along while you sleep, crawl in your mouth and spin a web in your throat so you choke to death". I freaked out whenever I saw a little spider cause I was afraid I might accidentally kill it.
