I used to believe that, since the only major visible difference between Superman and any other person was the cape, that his powers came as a result from that. I was also pretty sure that that tight feeling in my stomach that happened if I tripped a little going down the stairs quickly was what flying felt like.
So, putting two and two together, I thought that if I had enough speed and tripped going down the stairs while wearing my Superman cape from Halloween, I could sustain the flight indefinitely like Superman himself.
Luckily I was always too scared to really try it.
When I was a kid, I thought that I could fly if I jumped high enough- but that once I did, gravity would no longer work, and I would go flying off into space and die.
So I never jumperd very high unless I was indoors.
When I was little I used to believe my dad could grow a beard at will. That he could go upstairs fully shaven and come down and have a full beard.
When I was 4 my mum told me that I would be super strong if I eat spinach (just like Popeye). I didn't belived her so she said that we could arm wrestle after I eat it. I agreed and I won wvwry time... When I was 10, after long time, I ate spinach again and I asked her to arm wrestle. She told me that she let me win every time, and that that was for little kids... O_O I was SO disappointed..,
But I still like spinach...
I used to believe that I could fly. No reason behind it, I just really thought I could and that I had to keep it a complete secret.
You know the rays of light that you can see when you look at a lightbulb and squint your eyes? Well, when I was little I used to think those beams of light were the light's powers and if I held my hands up to it, their power/energy would be transfered to me. I stopped doing this when my aunt asked me what I was doing in front of everyone. xD
When I was little, one of my favorite movies was Kiki's Delivery Service. I used to think I was a witch just like Kiki, and I kept trying to fly on a broom. I thought it didn't work because my powers hadn't developed yet.
After I heard about dog whistles, I tried to see how high I could make my voice go. To my surprise, I could go up to a certain pitch and suddenly I couldn't go any higher- I thought I could make sound that was too high for a human to hear. I wen't around bragging about not needing dog whistles, and I didn't stop until I realized how stupid I must seem, based on peoples reactions.
I believed that when I was in the shower and I pressed really hard against my eyes for ages with my fists that when I opened my eyes I could briefly see into the "other realm" where there were Ghosts and such.
Unfortunatly I never saw any Ghosts in my bathroom and by the time I had ran out of the bathroom to see if there were Ghosts in any other part of the house my eyes had returned to normal. I'm not sure why I never tried doing that outside of the shower.
I used to believe I could walk on air if I didn't look down. Cartoon characters would run off of cliff and hang in the air until they looked down. I climbed on a chair, looked straight ahead and walked off. I learned I needed to fight my instinct to look down. After the second time my mom kept an eye on me to see why I kept hurting myself. She caught me doing it a third time.
i used to think everyone but me could read other peoples minds and that if i thought anything horrible about anyone the police would get me XD
i also thoght that my father was a vampire at one point XD XD
I used to belive my mom had a crystal ball that she could look into and see what I was doing whenever she wanted
i belive till 7 years old that my father see throught the walls (he know what I done when he back from work,). I never think that my mum told him what i was doing.
Ok I still belive this sometimes and I'm 14 now but since i was probably 4 or I've belived that the adults in my family could read anyones mind. And I thought that it was like our family secret (like off of sabrina the teenage witch) and i would learn how to do it when i got older.
I used to believe that if children weren't in bed by 7 o'clock, the wolf, the fox and the bear could come to your house and take you, even if you were hiding and/or your parents wanted to keep you.
When I was little, I believed that IF I BELIEVED HARD ENOUGH, I could fly! I tried many times, (mostly jumping into snowbanks from several feet up, so I wouldn't hit the hard ground). and fell down as many. I concluded that I just wasn't believing in myself enough. I spent many hours trying to figure how how to believe harder. Never worked.
I used to think that if you poked both buttcheeks at the same time, they would turn into superman and fly away.
I used to believe that I could figure out about different people, dead or alive, by talking to the leaves on the trees.
i used 2 believe that if i poke my eye at the right angle producing 2 images of an object, then closing my eye nd spinning it would make me suck the objects soul
I used to think that if I took a bath towel and held the opposite ends in each of my hands and jumped off a chair while flapping REALLY hard, I could fly.
I never flew, and I assumed it was because I wasn't flapping hard enough =D
