After many, many "say no to drugs" presentations in elementary schoo, I used to believe that ants could carry drugs into my nose while I slept. I kept the blankets up over my head when I slept to keep the drug-carrying ants away.

One day while playing with legos in the basement, my brother told me that all spiders were poisonous and that to keep away from all of them. At this point I noticed a long legged spider (Daddy long legs) and asked if that one was as well. As he pointed he put his finger as close to the spider as he could get it (in order to get it to crawl on him) and said that it was the most poisonous of all. Of coarse the spider did crawl on him to which he started pretending to die and tell me to get help so I ran upstairs screaming for mom. My brother came upstairs laughing his butt off, he said later it was worth the spanking.

I am still really afraid of spiders, that memory will stick with me forever!

You know those itty bitty so small you can barely see them spiders that are always, like, red, yellow, or orange? Well, when I was four years old my older brother told that those spiders were flavored. So I spent three years squishing them on my finger and licking them off. I never noticed a taste and he explained this away by saying "They're just too small for you to taste it strongly". I learned the truth when my second grade teacher caught me eating one at recess and told me he had lied. I WILL get him back one day...

When I was really little, my mom told me that Daddy Long Leg spiders couldnt make their own webs, and that they eat dust. I believed this until one day i saw one spinning a web. I now know that they can spin webs, they eat small insects, and are venomous. (but they cant puncture human flesh because their fangs are too small).

I used to believe that butterflies were born when a fly mated with butter. I had no idea how this would happen. I suppose the fly sat on the butter.I was a strange kid...

My mum told me as a little kid that all feathers had bird lice on them so you couldn't pick them up. This was because I would always come home with collections of objects in my pockets. When I was 19 this had still never been contradicted and I told my then boyfriend (now husband) to quickly drop a feather in great panic!!!! How embarrasing.

My older sister convinced me that snails were the slyest creatures around, although they crawled really slow as soon as someone walked by they would jump up on the leg and stick there. I still have difficulty casually walking past a snail.

My mother thought I was brain damaged because I could never see the dragon flies even when other people did. That is because I thought they were miniature dragons flying around who were green with little flames shooting out their nostrils.

I believed that as a child you should always sleep with your pets. My mother only let me have pet worms, slugs or snails. I let them out of the jar to sleep with me every night...but sometimes I rolled over them. I would wake up in the morning thinking that they had crawled back home.

When I was younger I found a tic on the back of my leg. Well I knew that tics were blood suckers and I also knew that Vampires were blood suckers. I sreamed at my cousin to pick the tic off but she wouldnt. So I ran screaming through the house that the tic was going to drain my blood and I was going to die. My grandma picked it off and all was well once I learned the truth.

My brother, who was a year ahead of me in school and I thought at the time much smarter, told me when I was in about first or second grade that if you bit your tongue really hard, it would create an electric current through your body and if ants tried to bite you, it would kill them!! I only needed a couple of ant bites to disprove his theory!!

One morning when I was about 6 years old I found a spider in my bed. It had been there all night. From that day until I was about 8 years old, I would have to put pillows around the outside of my bed because I thought that thousands and thousands of spiders would crawl onto my bed and bite me during the night. I got over it though.

I had it in my head that tiny spiders would leave you money. My older sisters used to call them 'money spiders' and pick up twenty pence pieces when they saw one. Shame they always used to find them first!

I was told when I was young that when that when you step on a spider that it will make it rain the next day.
