When I was little and someone sneezed, I would always hear someone say "Bless you" So I thought that's what came out when you sneezed. One day, I sneezed and snot got on my hand. I went to my mom and said "Momma! I got bless you on my hand!" It took everything she had not to roll on the floor from laughing

I had a teacher who told my best friend you could breathe out of your tear ducts. To her disapointment, she could not.

I used to believe that when I breathed in and out, it was my mouth doing the work and not my lungs. And when I saw my chest expanding and retracting, I thought it was weird that it did the opposite of a balloon (when you blow, it expands) so I would try to suck in my gut or push it out and try and reverse the in/out process.

When I was very young, I observed a lady breastfeeding a baby and asked my mother what she was doing. She explained to me that the mother produces milk to feed to the baby... As my dad always had a cup of coffee in the morning, I naturally assumed that this meant the father must somehow produce coffee for the baby.

To this day I still want coffee flavoured nipples.

I used to believe that grown men never ever cried, because I would never see my dad cry. I was quite shocked when I saw a male teacher cry at my sister's graduation.

I used to believe that if I didn't think about something for long enough I would forget it.
My friend Jane told me in graphic biological detail how babies are made. I was 9, I knew she hadn't made it up because no-one could have an imagination that wild! I felt a little sullied by knowing and tried not to think about it so that I would forget it. Guess what? it didn't work. But as I get older, I'm 43 now, I find I don't have to try so hard, somedays I could forget my name.

When we were about 6 and 8, my sister and I discovered that we could burp when we drank cola. We though it was realy funny and kept on doing it all the time. My mother began to be upset and told us that we should stop doing that because it would disform our stomach. We didn't bother 'til she told us that disform stomach coudn't digest chocolate and sweet pastries.

up until i think 6th grade, i used to think that every time a person spit, they lost a bunch of tastebuds, and so that is why grown men (who in my small town, i often saw spitting) always ate so much... because they had tasting troubles!

When i was really young, i remember thinking how people breathed when they were kissing. that's because i thought kissing entailed suction (like hoovering) of air and saliva from the other person's mouth continuously!

When I was about 8 my older brother [17 at the time] told me that he could shut off his hearing..I belived him and spent hours trying to figure out how!! As a mom now, I tricked my 10 year old into believing it to..for hours she tried turning it off,by feeling for the buttons inside your ears....

I used to believe (and I'm dead serious when I say this) that your armpits would bleed the day you became a woman. Every morning before I would go to school. I would check my armpits to see if they were bleeding, and I would be so paranoid sitting in class thinking 'What if I start bleeding?!'

When I was a young boy I thought when we cried or when we laughed we won or we lost one minute of our life.
