When I was young I believed that you stored up speed. So, if I wanted to race someone I would laze around for an hour or two to gain an advantage. Because of this and my neurotic nature I believed I should NEVER EVER run my fastest, just in case I ran into a cheetah and needed all my speed. I was the slow kid in gym class and would always feel superior as the other kids darted past me, thinking a cheetah would eat them right up

I used to believe that I was part of someone else's dream. When my mother would come to wake me early to go to school, I would wish that whoever had me in their dream would wake up and I would be able to go back to sleep.

When my big brother and I were little, we used to think that if we couldn't hear something, then our parents couldn't. So early in the morning when we didn't want to wake anyone up, we'd plug our ears when we were about to make a noise, you know... so -they- couldn't hear it either.

i used to believe and am still not quite sure to beleave as bad as that sounds that when i was young i'll say 6 or 7 that if i ran really fast that i could fly. i was always told that its probably just my imagination but i seem to remember it so vividly that to me it feels like it happened!

growing up I had an eccentric aunt who told me that if you concentrated hard enough, you could move objects with your mind. Well, whether this is true or not, I never managed it. But I remember sitting for hours on the couch looking at things on a shelf and staring at them until my eyes hurt. And after a few intense minutes of staring down whatever it is I was trying to levitate, I would dramatically break my concentration from the object and act all out of breath, thinking "Almost, I almost had it that time!"

I used to believe that the tissues in a tissue box were the same tissues that made up our bodies. I would routinely snack on tissues with the hopes of growing big and strong by 'feeding' my body tissues.

I used to believe that you could blow up your hand by blowing "into" your thumb. I saw something like that on a cartoon. I tried it, and was convinced my hand had actually grown a little!

When I was in 5th grade, I thought I could control the wind. I told my friend and he laughed at me but then held my hands out and the wind moved a little. He told people then they started laughing at me. But I was convinced for a week that I could control the wind.

When I was about 8 years old, I believed VCRs could be controlled telepathically. Not sure where that came from, as I used the remote control regularly. However I would still sit far away from the VCR, concentrating as hard as I could to try and make it do stuff.

I used to believe that I could lay eggs if I squatted down, shut my eyes and clucked like a chicken. I was so proud of myself thinking that I would be able to feed my family and friends. It was only later that I realised that the eggs I had been laying were plastic toy eggs that my mum and dad sneakily put underneath me.

When I was young I thought that by drinking orange soda I could run much faster then I normally could. My father did nothing to disprove this theory, often times buying me soda and telling me to run to a point and back while he counted. According to him I ran 100 yards in 10 seconds

I use to believe when i was a little kid i would hear baseball anouncers on TV say "the pitchers arm is on fire after that fast ball!" i actually believed you could catch your arm on fire if you threw a baseball fast enough, so I would go out to a baseball field by my house and throw against a fense as hard as i could, i thought that i could see smoke when i threw the ball. i figured i could only throw smoke because i wasnt a grown-up yet so i cant throw fire. looking back i realize that the smoke i thought i saw was dust picked up on the baseball but i really thought i could throw smoke!

I used to think that I could teleport. I had a loft bed and, if I wanted to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, I would have to climb down the ladder and walk all the way to the bathroom. So, I would close my eyes when I was at the top of my ladder. When I opened them again, I would be in the bathroom. I thought I could teleport, but I never told anyone about my secret powers. Now, I guess that I probably was just sleep walking.

If I pushed the mole on my Grandpa's forehead, his teeth would pop out. I really thought they were connected :)
