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 :)

I used to believe that the dust particles you see floating in the air were actually atoms. So, when my teacher said that atoms were so small you couldn't see them, I thought that I just had super powerful eyes.

For years when I was little, I thought that if I was touching a person, they could somehow secretly read my mind.

When I rode in the car with my grandfather, he would "pressure drive". While driving he would say to me "I don't like this guy in front of us, I'm going to pressure drive him to turn." Then he would lean forward and hum until the car in front of us turned. I was convinced that he had special powers. I later realized that he could see their turn signal, but I was too short to see it.

I used to believe that I had a super power and could see through things because when I closed one of my eyes I couldn't see an object because it was behind something, but when I opened both my eyes, I could. Lol, perspective.

I used to believe that adults could read minds, and that it would be kept a secret from me until I was "of age" and the ability developed in me too. So I was really careful not to think about secret stuff when my parents were around!
