I used to believe that your belly button held your skin together, and that if you "undid" your belly button, all your skin would fall off. Needless to say, I never let anyone go near my stomach. To this day I hate people touching my stomach, although I don't honestly believe my skin will fall off anymore.
Someone told me that your bum falls off if you unscrew your belly button. This dosn't stop me from fiddling with it though. I often try to turn my innie into an outie. I succeed. I think I'm a freak!
I used to believe that when you got sick and were to throw up, that the barf came out of your belly - button. So every time I would get sick, I would watch my belly button to see if there was anything coming of it.
my mum told me that my belly button was where god had poked me to see if I was done and ready to come out the oven
When I was little, I once saw this girl who had a protruding belly button. I was so jealous of her as I thought it was better than having a hole and thought she was blessed.

I asked my father when I was four or five what my belly button was. He told me very matter of factly that I had been shot there! And that everyone eventually gets shot in the stomach so we all have belly buttons. I went around for years so terrified that someone out there was going to shoot me again not knowing I already had a navel...When I was in my thirties I was living with my boyfriend. He had the habit of petting our cat while on his belly. Apparantly, some fur found it's way into his belly button. He came to me all worried that he was growing black straight hair out of his belly button. I tried to assure him that given that he's a blond and people don't grow hair from inside the navel that it was very likely cat fur. He said it was stuck and proved that it was growing from him. I offered to pull it out and he looked at me in horror, "You can't do that! I'll unravel." Did I mention the idiot was in his thirties?
My mother used to scare us into believing that she could make our arms and legs fall off by unscrewing our belly buttons, my brother and I were terrified of screwdrivers for the longest time.

When i was about 4 I used to believe that belly buttons were the entrance for a tiny little man, dressed in overalls and armed with a sweeping brush,who came every night and cleared away the paper sruck to sweets and toffees that I had eaten.
I used to believe that the "outie" belly button shows that there is an egg inside you , and so when you had sex the belly button went in saying that you would have a baby-I was terrified when my cousin told my that! and when my belly button finally went in i was mortified!
i used to believe that animals nursed their offspring throught their belly buttons after watching some show on discovery channel about gorillas. it showed a mother gorilla feeding a baby gorilla.
When i was 5 or 6 I thougt that if your belly button was an outie and you poked it 3 times in a row it would unwind all your skin and you will live without any skin and anything including clothe will make you bleed. and if you were to bleed 6 times in 1 day your blood will be drained. I belived that intill I was ten. Creepy.

When I was little, my grandmother told me that my belly button is where all my skin was tied into a knot. I took her seriously and for almost a year I wouldn't touch my belly button, wash too close to my belly button in the bath, all in fear that if I touched it the "knot"/belly button would come undone, and all of my skin would fall off.
When i was little I used to pull on my belly button. My Grandma once convinced me that if i kept pulling on it then it would get longer and longer until it went to the floor! I believed this until I was about 10.

I thought your ova were in your belly button ( the little knots you get from having your umbilical cord tied,) for a long time, I used to try and pick them out and my belly button ended up all red and sore and my mom would yell at me, "get your fingers out of you belly button!" I never told her it was because I didn't want to have a baby.
