I used to like to take my shoes off in restaurants when I was a kid so my parents made up creatures called restaurant turtles that blended in with the carpet of the restaurant but would jump up and bite your toes if you weren't wearing shoes. I believed them for a pretty long time.

When I was a toddler my father told me all the bouys at the beach connected into a gate that kept sharks out. This belief lasted until my 2nd year of high school,and I haven't gone in the water since.

when i was 6, my uncle showed me an alive octopus and somehow it ended up twirled its hands around my arms with all those suckers on them. i used to believe him when he said they can still stuck to me even after their dead. i had that fear from that moment on that if i eat octopus or squid, those things will stick onto my stomach. i still refuse to eat them even i am 24 yrs old now.

I used to think that animals pooed out of their tails. The animal that confused me the most was the horse: how did such a big poo come out of all of those little hairs?

When I was really young I couldn't get my head round the way a radio worked, so to make things easier my dad made me believe that little mice would dress up in costumes and impersonate the singers and radio presenters inside the radio through a little microphone. I believed this for years and often tried to look inside to see if I could spot them.

I used to believe that elephants came from peanuts. I tried to grow the elephants in dixie cups filled with dirt and peanuts- lined up on the window sill.

Whenever we were driving and saw a dead animal, I always thought it was sleeping. I would ask my dad, "Why is the deer (or raccoon, squirrel, etc.) sleeping there, Daddy?" and he would say, "I don't know but that's not a very good place for it to sleep, it'll get run over." It never occurred to me until later in life that animals don't just sleep in the middle of the road..

When I was at a restaurant when I was little, I was told by my sister that if you mix salt and pepper into your water, baby sharks are born. I believed this for a few years, and one day I tried it. I grabbed the salt, pepper, and a glass of water and went outside to my driveway. Needless to say, I had a good laugh.

When I was younger my dad told me polyester cam from furry little creatures that looked like deer. When I asked if they shaved them like they did sheep, he said no, they have to kill the little polyesters. I believed him until I was 14.

When I was a kid I had a bunch of pet Gerbils. My brother somehow convinced me that gerbils were horses that were bred down to size.

While driving threw the mountains, my dad would barely swerve over to hit the rumble strips and he'd tell me they were mountain cows. Somehow, I could never see them. After awhile my older brother caught on and helped out my dad by telling me that mountain cows eat barbie hair. I had a death grip while holding my barbies head out the window, and when I'd turn away from the window my dad would hit the rumble strips and I'd yank my barbie into the car as fast as I can. I believed in mountain cows until I was about 8...
