When I was 3-4 I thought that your stomach had different compartments for different kinds of food and that that I could get out of eating what I didn't want if I said my vegetable part was full but my cake part was empty.

My grandfather was rather portly and had the habit of eating dessert before his dinner instead of after. As a child, I thought that was the reason for my grandpa's large size.

When I was small I'd asked my mom what periods were she'd replied,"When you get stomach cramps." So I thought that it was something like a stomach ache that you get when you eat bad food. So I didn't eat out till I was 12 and my poor teacher had to explain all that to me!

I used to believe pork chops were actually something called "brazilian chicken". Mainly because when i was a kid i wouldn't eat pork products, thought they were gross, and my parents solution was just to rename it.

I used to believe that my body and limbs were completely hollow inside, and that when I ate, the food would fall down into my feet and kept filling me up. I used to wonder how would I fill the top of my head without food falling out my mouth.

When ever I choked on water or food as a kid my grandpa always told me it went down "the wrong tube". This made me think of the back of my throat having hundreds of tubes for all different kinds of food, like one for pizza and one for oreos etc. Thank you 5th grade biology!

I used to believe that when you made crumbs after eating, it wasn't because you were a messy eater, simply that the smallest crumbs would just fall out of your chin! Almost like they were caught in a filter, and they would just magic their way through the skin on your chin and then fall onto your plate, lap etc.

When I was younger I used to think there was an infinite amount of fridges in your stomach, each fridge for a type of food. This explained why I could be full of vegetables but would still be able to fit in a few more fries. The vegentable fridge was full, but the fries fridge wasnt...

I thought that when you ate anything, it started filling up at the tip of your toes and built up through your body. When the food you ate reached the top of your head, that's when you died.

When I was little i thought people had mice in their stomachs and when they were hungry they would make a bunch of noise, hence the stomach growl.
