I used to believe that if I held the flush button on the toilet down for long enough, it would be endlessly flushing and would forever drain the water supply. I would lie awake dreading this.

When I was a kid, I thought that anyone who was still in the bathroom when the toilet tank stopped filling would be electrocuted by the toilet. I have no explanation for this.

When I was about 4 or 5, I asked my mom what happened to the bath water once it went down the drain. She told me it went to a plant. She meant a water refinery plant, but for a while after that, I thought that somewhere out there was a plant so big it needed everyone's bath water to grow. :P

When I was younger there was always a bidet in my bathroom and for years i thought it was a broken toilet. Then came the times where my mom made me wash my feet in it and i would think to myself, "why am i washing my feet in a broken toilet"

When I was 4 I had the misconception that hair grew in water, which is why when I cut all my hair off and my mother wailed for my extraordinary explanation, I cheerfully replied, "don't worry mommy. It will grow back when I take a bath."

I used to believe that conditioner was also called 'rinse.' I believe this is from the directions to "Apply Shampoo and Rinse" on shampoo bottles.

When I was little (five or so), my mom must've told me not to flush garbage or something down the toilet. I assumed that if I did, she would know somehow. For many years afterwards I pictured a room like an aquarium with people watching a stream of water through huge windows, seeing what came down with each flush. I never figured out how they would tell which wads of toilet paper came from which toilet, though.

When I was very little, my dad told me that shampoo was actually the 'poo' of llama-like animals called 'Shams', which lived on golf coarses..... I believed this until I was about 12, and still get that image in my head when I buy shampoo.

You know that hole at the top of the sink to prevent overflow? I used to believe that any water that went down there went straight to Africa to the people that didn't have fresh water, so I spent hours cupping my hands diverting water from the tap down the hole!

I used to believe that the electric outlet in the bathroom was a video camera, and that it was taking videos of everyone in the bathroom. Stupid lying big sisters.

My mum sings in the shower, so when i was small(and i mean REALLY small)i thought she did that because the shower head was a snake,and when she was singing,the snake was happy and did not spit poison,but if she dident sing,the snake would get hangry(thats hungry and angry)and would poison her and eat her.This was so embarrising when she wasen't singing in the shower.

I believed that Pennywise from Stephen King's IT lived in the bathtub so I would always turn on the hot water before unstopping the drain in order to scald him.

I used to believe that the gurgle sound after pulling the plug in the sink was from the troll that lived down at the bottom burping after drinking all the sink water :)
