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.

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.

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 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!

top belief!

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!

When I was little, I believed that each person had a set amount of blood in their body, and as you got bigger the blood would thin out to fill up your body. I always liked to wear bandaids because they would stop the bleeding if I got cut, so I'd have more blood when I grew up.

My dad is a dentist, and when I was little I was snooping in the bathroom cabinet when I came across a bottle of fancy mouthwash, designed to fight infection, which was labelled "Oral Rinse". My little mind must have been in the gutter, for I thought it was something like an enema. For a couple of years I misunderstood the difference between "oral" and "rectal".

When I was younger, my father used to tell me that if you held in your sneezes, your head could blow up. One day in 2nd grade I caught a student holding in their sneezes. I was very concerned for them. The teacher asked me what was wrong, and I told her that I was worried their head would blow up. She quickly put an end to that myth.

My older brother told me that everytime you sneezed your lungs would bleed. I believed this until I was 21!

When I was growing up in the Philippines, my brother and sisters would tell me that if I get cut, that rice and carabao would come out. I thought to myself, "Yeah right! Carabao! PLEASE! But what am I gonna do when rice comes out?"
