I used to believe that blind people couldn't see because they could see air, and it got in the way. Hence, if they were in a vacuum or if scientists came up with glasses that took the air out of your vision they would all be able to see. Eventually, when I got glasses, I realized this made no sense.

When I was a little girl I used to think that boys and men didn't have eyelashes because Mickey Mouse doesn't have eyelashes. I found out when I tried to pull my dad's eyelashes and they wouldn't come out. I had thought they were fake.

this went on from 1nd to 6th grade, i always thought that if you sneezed with your eyes open that your eyes would pop out of your head a little bit. When i was in 5th grade a friend of mine said it happened to a friend of hers. when i was in 6th grade i was reading about Urban Myths and that was a big one. It said it was impossible for that to happen.

When I was little, I used to think that boys weren't supposed to have eyelahes and when I saw boys at school, I would wonder, "Why do they have eyelashes? Boys aren't supposed to have eyelashes!"

My friend told her step-sister that the cat crapped in her eyes every night, explaining eye crusties. Her sister actually believed her until the cat died and she still got eye crusties.

In our family, my mother, sister, and I all have green eyes, while both of my brothers and my father have brown eyes. Naturally I concluded that brown eyes were for boys, and that girls didn't have them. The same was true in reverse for green eyes, which were for girls. Blue eyes, I suppose, could go either way, but nobody in my family has them. Also, since my mother wore glasses and my father did not, I assumed that wearing glasses was a woman thing, not for men.

I remember standing outside and staring at the flower garden. And I noticed that every time I blinked, everything in my vision would shift slightly. And I blinked rapidly and saw the flowers gradually shifting to the right. I began freaking out, because I thought that if I kept blinking, eventually the whole picture would move away leaving only blackness and that's how I would become blind.

I used to believe that you can see your brain if you close your eyes really hard and try to roll them on the other side.

I used to believe, when i was 4-6 that everybodys eyes could see different colours.

For example:If I saw a blue car i thought everyon else saw it in a different colour like, red, yellow,or green. Colours like that. I am 12 now and i still laugh when i think about it.

My Uncle, lets call him Dick, told me when I was like 5 years old that if I cried that I would waste my tears and I would cry blood. I never cried from that day forward.

My school district provided free vision and hearing tests for all elementary students. From kindergarten on, I had the idea that failing a test at school would be Really Bad. So when I took the eye test and couldn't see the chart, the nurse frowned and I thought I was going to get in trouble.

So I cheated by pretending not to know my letters and guessing until she said I was right. She must have thought I was a moron, but a moron who could see. Years later in junior high my mom finally figured out why I had headaches all the time, and it turned out I have 20/200 vision and needed glasses all along.

My sister told me that if you ripped out an eyelash or one fell off your skin would change color and that is why some would have really white skin, and why some had dark skin

I had my own unique belief about the warning, "if you cross your eyes, they'll stick that way". I thought that there was a set time limit that everyone had, and every time I crossed my eyes I was counting down seconds off that time limit. Every time I crossed my eyes, I got a rush thinking I was getting closer to "zero hour" - and was this the time that they would stick!?!?

I thought that the colour of your eyes determined how well you could see that particular colour.

E.g., if you have blue eye's you could interpret blue more deeply than someone with brown eyes.

I reasoned that the reason this wasn't common knowledge was because there was no objective way for one person to say how "blue" blue was to them.
