When I was about 5, I honestly believed pheasants were robots made out of metal bins with wobbly arms and would sit in fields making strange bird noises.
When I was about eight, maybe seven, I had a nightmare that my mom got eaten by a shark.
I took to warning her about every little inch of water she approached, even if it was shower water. Luckily that only lasted about a day or two.
I used to believe when I was little that Dinosaurs lived in the irrigation systems. Like when you go over a freeway ramp usually you can see those huge tunnels. I guess it's for rain water and flooding? I was always scared a dinosaur might come out, they never did, I just figured they were probably hibernating.
when i was about 5 yrs old, i was at my uncle's cottage and when night fell, i saw fireflys for the first time. I ran to my uncle and asked what are those things glowing in the forest? He told me that if i knew that ghosts are invisible, then they form themselves into flys and that they glow at night cause they are not flys, they are ghosts. This sacred the living heck out of me and i asked my uncle what are we going to do to get rid of them? He told me when i go to bed tonight, i was to take my toy gun with me and if any of these "ghosts" gets inside my room, i was instructed to shoot them and if i missed any of the them, my uncle will shoot them with his hunting rifle. My mother was so mad at my uncle cause i couldn't sleep for days after that. Even today, i can't look at fireflys the same way as everyone else and i'm in my mid forties
i used to believe that animals talk but theyre too shy to talk infront of people so they make unusual sounds (meow, rawr, oink) to communicate in code language or something xD
I live on a farm and when i was about three i used to help my dad shear the sheep we had on the farm..well i believed i was helping and then afterwards when we were having dinner a neighbour of mine asked why only my dad could shear the sheep....to which i replied "beacause he knows where the buttons on their coats are!"
When I was 3 or 4, (now I am 21) my mom bought me three goldfish. She asked me to name them. Mind you, I have never even heard of the TV show Full House. I named them Michelle, Stephanie, and Diana because I liked those names. OK, so Diana isn't DJ, but it's close enough, right? I find that sort of weird.
When was 5-6 I used to think that leather was made from hippo skin.
If you tire of your popsicle (or ice cream cone) just leave it in the yard and deers will eat it for you overnight while you sleep; but clean up the litter the next day or they'll never stop by ever again! I believed my dad for the longest time..
When I was a kid, I had a storybook with dragons and unicorns, but also kangaroos. So I thought kangaroos weren't real. When I went to the zoo for the first time, I was in pure awe.
I use to think mountains were dead dinosaurs and grass grew over it.
I used to believe that reindeers were made up, like Santa. As a cynical kid, I thought it was all part of the made-up Christmas package. Dragons: now there was an animal I could believe in.
I didn't find out they were real until Xmas 2007. I'm 19.
when i was small, i saw some olives on a shelf and asked my big sister what they were. she told me that they were little animals like fish and that the red bits were their tongues! im 14 years old and still believed that until i was told in science 2 days ago that its not true! my sister still denies this!
When I was younger I thought that if you stepped on a crack it would make dinosaurs come out and they would eat you right up!
i used to believe that white milk came from white cows, chocolate milk came from black cows, and strawberry milk came from pigs.
when i was a kid i always wonder how fish can sleep in water without any problem but i can't sleep in tub
I used to believe that rocks are animals.
I used to believe that snakes don't have legs cause ants bit them of.
My sister told me that if I was bad, I would be sent to the Okefenokee in a package where I would be promptly eaten by aligators, and I beleived it could be done.
I grew up in Toronto, one of the few places where almost all the squirrels in the city are black. There were so few grey squirrels that kids used to say that grey squirrels had rabies and if there was one on the playground, we'd all run inside screaming. Then I moved to New York. All of the squirrels were grey. It was the scariest place I'd ever been to.
