Whenever I faced the sun as a kid, I felt the urge to sneeze, so clearly the "magnetism" generated by the sun caused sneezes. Silly huh, EVERYONE knows little gnomes inside your face release gases that cause sneezes.

I seem to recall being told by a doctor that snot was made out of waste materials like dead brain cells. As I used to sneeze A LOT, I thought this was making me thicker.

Up until my sophomore or junior year of high school, I used to think sweat is drained back into the body through my pore if I didn't wipe it off.

When I was about 10 or so I used to believe you only got to move you arms and legs a certain number of times in your entire life. Like maybe you would only be allowed to move your right arm 768 and then it gets frozen. For a while I was very afraid that one say I would just be completely frozen because I moved around too much.

My Dad spent several years really scared of sneezing and farting at the same time because he thought the pressure at both ends would rip you open like a Christmas cracker!

Whenever somebody burped, I would suck in real deep to capture thier burp and then blow real hard in a different direction to get the burp away so I would'nt have to smell it. Pretty stupid, huh?

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 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.

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?

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?"
