I used to believe that if you held your nose to hold back a sneeze for a certain amount of times over and over again, your brain would pop.

When I was 6, my 16-year-old cousin came to live with us. I am an only child so I looked up to her like a big sister. One time, I saw that her nails were clear and shiny. So I thought she let the water run over her nails and dried. I tried to do that many times but the water always ran off my nails. I was so upset!

As a middle schooler I believed your body was just full of milk and I was terrified of babies because I believed they could kill you by removing too much milk from your body

i used to believe that there was a whole village of tiny people living inside of people. they carried the food around, moved the blood (they also caused heahaches w/ their tiny hammers) and when i went to sleep, they went to sleep and so on. one day i saw a skeleton that was marked with little numbers and that convinced me i was right and they wrote those numbers on the bones from the inside!

I used to believe that snot was actually waste from your brain ("brain-poop") and that when you had a cold and your sinuses got stuffed up, it was your brain suffering constipation.

i used to think each person has a certain number of heart beats to use up before they die. I thought this was why your heart beats more slowly if you are fitter: you are saving more beats up for later!

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.

When I was younger, I used to believe that your shoulder blades behind your back were pre-mature angel wings ready to sprout when you died.

When I was seven, I used to believe that when a people said they "didn't drink" that they did not consume any liquids. I was pretty much perplexed, but figured it might be possible to get enough water from vegetables, fruits and other food products.

I used to think that shadows felt pain, and sent it to their "owner".

I "discovered" this when I proudly exclaimed to my Grandpa, "I just stepped on you shadow!" He played along with it, and pretended like it hurt him really badly. I wouldn't step on anyones shadow for the longest time, in fear of hurting them

Up until 3rd grade I used to believe that humming was an inaudible sound. One day, the teacher was walking around and she asked, "Who's humming." And I thought, "She can hear that!?"

When I was really little (like maybe 3 or 4), I was afraid I might break my mom into tiny pieces if I hugged her too tight. I imagined she could shatter like glass. I was always careful not to squeeze much and to keep my arms kind of relaxed so I wouldn't hurt her. I have no idea why I developed this belief, but eventually I told my mom about it and she set me straight.

When I was little I thought you had 2 holes in your throat, one for food & one for drink. Therefore when I coughed whilst eating or drinking it had "gone down the wrong hole".

Soup used to confuse me greatly!

For some reason I used to believe that if you HAD to swing your arms when you walk because if you didn't you would automatically stop...I spent a lot of time making sure my arms we're swinging, I was a warped little kid.

When I was little every time I got the hiccups my grandma would tell me that I got them because I didnt wipe good enough when I went to the bathroom! Needless to say everytime I got the hiccups I would run to the restroom to clean myself thinking that would make them go away, and when they didnt I would be so emberrassed thinking that everyone would think I was not cleaning right.

We used to think that if you ran swinging your arms around, you would run faster.

As a child I like to drink dill pickle juice. My mother not knowing if this was good for me told me that if I drank to much of it would turn my blood into water. I would drink some and then look at my veins. Seeing they were still blue and would say to myself, "OK I can still drink some more, so I did."
