I never discovered that I was breathing until I was about 9, when I held my breath in the car one time, then said to myself "whoa...so that's what breathing is...you do it to stay alive!!!" After that I became paranoid that I would stop breathing and just fall down dead one day.
i used to believe that u had to learn to whistle to become an adult...i still can't whistle
When you burp, your tummy is thanking you for the food you fed it.. :p
I believed that hiccoughs were caused by a little elf. The elf traveled around the world giving people hiccoughs. Whenever I had the hiccoughs, I thought the elf was sitting on my shoulder. He would stay with me for a little while, and then move on to give the hiccoughs to someone else.
i used to believe everyone saw different colours but just described the same.
Until I was about 10 years old, I believed I could breathe through my ears, because sometimes I couldn't feel the air moving in and out of my nose. Never felt it in my ears either, but where else would it have gone?
I thought I was the only one in the world who ever belched.
When I was much younger I didn't know that our bodies had veins and bloor vessels. So I thought that our blood just floated around under our skin. And when I cut myslef my brother would scare me by telling me all of it would come out and I would die.
I know the truth now and to get my brother back I always remind him how he cried in The Lion King movie!
When I had an itch as a child I thought that it was caused by a little creature inside me that wanted attention. Kind of like a cat that wants petted will rub against your leg, the creature would rub up against the inside of my skin until I had scratched it enough, then it would go off on its merry way.
Also, my dad used to tell me that if you sneezed 16 times in a row you would die. Not that big a deal unless you have allergies, which I do. I remember quite a few times as a kid where I reached 15 sneezes and then nearly blew my eardrums out trying to hold in deadly number 16. :)
When I was little i used to think that the whole human body had little people in it, doing all the work, like really small people. That used to run 'round giving oxygen to the people in the muscles and the brain people telling the other people in various body parts what to do. Aswell as people in the stomach ripping everything up and dividing the good stuff to the bad stuff, wasn't until i learnt about the proper functions, i sat there thinking "but what about the little people?"
I believed that each person's inner body were all machines, gears, and springs and outer body are soft plush stuffed under the authenic leathers (skin)
When I was a kid I believed that bodies were operated by little people inside of you. They were little people dressed fully in white tights so that all you can see was their face. They talked to you and had weird machines that made your body work. When you got cuts, some would fall out.
When I was about 10 I used to believe that if you burped too much it would make your liver bleed
I never realised that you could breathe through your nose, until I saw my dad breathing without opening his mouth. I was really shocked and exclaimed, and everyone just looked at me confused.
Years later, my orthodontist said that I breathed through my mouth an abnormal amount. I always figured that was the reason.
my mum said that when i was 6 whenever i burped i used to say there was a dragon in my tummy that had hiccups!!!!!
when i was a little my father told my that when you stare at people with your mouth open to be careful because a fly might fly into your mouth. I still do it as an adult because some people surprise and confuse me. It an awful expression although it shows exactly what your thinking.
When I was about three years old I was bleeding for the first time. My choice of words for the ordeal: leaking.
When i was about 9, my brother and i were sitting around the kitchen table. I had just figured out how to make myself burp and wouldn't stop. Finally my dad said, "You know, you only have so many burps in you, if you use them all up you will have none left to breath with." I beleived it for a year!
when any negative idead or thinking came to my mind i used to spit because i thought that it will get out of my mind with my spitting.
My mom told me when i was about 4 that if I keep sniffing instead of blowing my nose when it was runny that my head would explode. I believed this for a very long time. I never sniffed and when I saw my friends do it in daycare I would freak out and start yelling at them to stop unless they wanted their head to explode!
