Having heard in church that we are all made of dust, I thought that I could gain weight by rubbing dust onto myself.

when I was a kid I did everything with both hands: even when I could do something with one hand, I should do it over with my other hand. this came from the believe that if I only used my dominant hand, the other would feel wronged and do something to me....no idea where I got this from

When I was a kid, I used to believe that men could get pregnant. So whenever I see a fat man I would think he is pregnant.

In 3rd grade (age 8/9) I thought that if I burped/talked/yelled/hocked loogies with my mouth closed that nobody could hear me. I'd sit there and openly yell at people right in front of them! When people told me to stop burping (I'd just learned to swallow air!) I was legitimately dumbfounded that they could hear me!

as a child, I believed that if I put my legs behind my head, they would pop off at the joints in a great big bloody mess. I'm 17 now, and while I know much more about human anatomy, putting my legs up high still makes me irrationally nervous.

when I was little I used to believe that my pinkie was shorter then others because it was cut by a pair scissors and thrown away because I was told so.

I used to believe there were little men inside our bodies that made all systems of our body work. I remember I first saw a illustrative image of such thing in a science book, but I used to literally interpret this image.

I used to believe that women pulled out all their leg hairs with their fingernails. I thought I was supposed to practice pulling out my hairs before I was an adult, and would spend hours yanking hairs out of my arms and legs. It got to the point when it actually showed all the signs of an addiction and my mom had to take me to therapy after she found out what I was doing.

Because women could produce milk I thought it only made sense that men made coffee. Now it makes sense why I don't drink coffee.

top belief!

When I was about 11-12, my aunt said that she wanted me to pull the plug if she was a vegetable in a hospital someday. She didn't want to live that way. I was horrified, because I believed that family members literally had to unplug the hospital beds from the walls themselves and I didn't think I could do it.
