I used to believe that when someone at your house turned your TV off ALL the other TVs in the world would turn off! LOL i used to believe that about radios too!
When I was four, I used to think that the light inside a refrigerator would stay on even when the door was closed. One day my parents were cleaning out the fridge and left it completely empty, so I stood inside and closed the door. The light went off. So I got out and never did that again.
I believed that if I touched the gray "snooze" button on my parent's alarm clock that I would become a girl. I believed this because when I was about 4 years old I had asked my mom what the button was for, and that was the explanation she gave me. I was afraid to go near it for years.
when i was little i never used to shut the doors inside house so she tried to get me to do this buy saying you must been born on a field and i belifed her for ages
Water is in the walls, that's where it comes from, and if you put a hole in the wall, it will rush out and drown you. I think I got this from an episode of Incredible Hulk where they were stuck underground and water was filling up the room. Also, from Amityville Horror (I didn't know it was blood). My dad was about to drill a hole in the wall and I started crying and begging him not to do it because we would drown!
Whe i was rele lil, i used to think lotion was oceans. I really believed that mermaids took small bits of the ocean and turned it into this creamy stuff that smelled really gud, and put it in a bottle. all for you to have soft skin. i believed this til i was in the seventh grade.... i still get teased for this, and ppl think im way to blond. :]
i used to believe that if you left your door open when you slept at night, ninjas would come in and attack you. i have no idea where it came from, but i managed to convince my sister and my best friend that it was true. for about three months we would spend at least a half an hour before we went to bed practicing kicks and punches in case the ninjas managed to open the door.
I used to think that when you dialled the wrong number on the phone and the recorded lady said"please check the number you have dialled and try again" that the lady who said it was the queen of england and it wasnt recorded...as if the queen would sit there at the phone all day!LOL
I used to believe you could get sucked into the vacuum.
When I was four or five, I used to believe that there was a little mani nthe toaster. This little man would light a match and toast the bread. That was his job.
I used to believe that there was little bite-size peices of chocolate in the little holes in the fan. lol. Also, I thought that roaches/clowns would come out of the toilet when I...went...xD
I used to ask my mum to tuck me into bed at bed time and she used to reply "i cant ive got a bone in my leg" and of course every1 has a bone in thier leg i realised this when i was 8
when i waz about 5 or 6 i believed that the people in the radio and on t.v. were little people in then radio and in the t.v. so when ever the t.v. asked a question i would answer it thinking they could hear me and i never went to close to the t.v. cause i thought they would jump out and scare me. stupid huh. =)

i used to believe that edward scissorhands lived in our family friend's attic.
When I was 3, our family lived in an apartment, and there was this part of the ceiling that wasn't even (looked like upside down stairs) . The air conditioner back then was really noisy, but I never paid it any attention until night time, because everything else was so quiet. I thought it was crocodiles in the uneven part of the ceiling that made the noise.
In my old house we used to have floor boards, and one would always creek when I stepped on it, and I used to think that something was hidden under there, like old treasure or something, so one day I finally plucked up the courage to get out of bed at night, peel back the carpet and unscrew the floor board. I had a flash light so I could see underneath, and I heard what was like a ghost voice saying, go back to bed!!
So I quickly screwed on the floorboard and put the carpet back and ran to bed. I wouldn't walk on that part of the floor ever again. I always used to have to hold my breath for 5 seconds then run past other wise the ghost would come for me at night.
It's only recently that I found out, it was my dad telling me to go back to bed.
My mom collected these tiny little glass figurines when I was a kid, and she said if I touched them they would shock me because of static electricity. I believed that until I picked one up at the age of 22.
I believed that wooden furniture was carved from a single enormous tree, (much like marble sculptures) i didn't understand about joinery at all. It wasn't until i began high school & we had woodwork classes that the penny dropped!
