This belief was when I was quite young. Probably around four or five. Anyway, you know those "child proof" lids on the medicine bottles? Well, my parents left them on the counters sometimes to remind them to take them, and just for fun I would try to open them. However my mom would tell me that they were childproof. In my little young mind, I thought "Well, children have small hands. So...if the bottle thinks that I have BIG hands, it'll open because I'm not a child!" So I would STRETCH my fingers out as much as I could, and while still stretching them, try to open the bottle. But alas, just having big hands wasn't enough to fool the smart perscription bottles. *sigh*

When I was younger, we living in a unit block and the entrance was directly below our balcony.

I used to believe that spiting onto people walking in was a victimless crime and that if I did manage to hit them, they would be really impressed with my aim.

When I was a kid I thought the reason fire alarms were loud was so that the people at the fire station could hear them.

My dad bought my mom a new bedroom set one year for Mother's Day. It had big inch-wide crystal-like knobs on all the drawers, etc. I can still remember being shocked that my dad spent so much money on my mom that year... I obviously thought the knobs were huge diamonds. My dad teased me about this forever (I remember that a whole lot better!)

My mom still believes that the dryer eats stray socks, and then gives them up years later. She found a black sock in the dryer and thought it was her ex-husbands', and he had died years ago!

I thought garden gnomes were alive because when I was about 5 I went to someones house and they had an electronic driveway gate and tons of garden gnomes. I saw the gnomes standing around and the gate opening by itself.. the gnomes were alive.

I used to have a big bookcase in my room, and whenever I heard a noise that I couldn't explain (air conditioning kicking in, etc.) , I thought that it came from behind that bookcase. Eventually I realized that there was a man behind my bookcase who was as flat as a pancake that tried to lure me out with his weird noises. Even when we moved, I imagined that a mover guy was trapped behind the bookcase and became the new Pancake Man. I was terrified of the Pancake Man until my mom decided to paint my room and moved the bookcase away from the wall. When I asked her where the Pancake Man was she gave me weirdest look and asked me what I meant. I'm still afraid to look behind bookcases...

When i was younger, I thought that those buttons on the outlets would destroy our house. If I pressed the yellow one, our house would collapse, and the red one would make it blow up.

I used to believe there was a little man that lived in the mailbox. He would catch the mail and make sure it went to the right place.

I was convinced that plastic grocery bags were essentially the same as the parachutes I saw in books and on tv. So I would go to the top of the slide on my swingset and jump off with my arms through the handles like I was wearing a book bag/parachute. Somehow my landing was never really that cushioned, though. I figured that I didn't have enough time to catch air in my parachute and that I would have to jump from a higher place to really get it to work. I knew that the parachutes I heard of could be opened too late so maybe that was my problem being too close to the ground. Luckily I never did get access to the roof of my house!

when i was around ten my family and i would visit our aunt's house a lot. she had a fireplace and we didn't so i wasn't used to them. in the winter her fireplace was always lit. it petrified me. i was convinced that at any moment the entire house would be a blaze. so i would tell my mother that i wanted to go outside and play even though there was nothing but a driveway and some trees. so i would stand in the driveway in the freezing cold for hours waiting for my family to burn up.

I used to believe that through the top shelf of the walk-in closet in my parents bedroom, there was a secret door that lead to a movie theatre. And it was called "Super Cinema". Don't remember many other details. I think the idea came first from a dream.
