I have brown hair and brown eyes and when i was small i thought people with blonde hair had blonde eyes and people with ginger hair had ginger eyes.
It kind of makes sense !
When ever I use to cry ( for no reason) my mother told me I would run out of tears and wont be able to cry anymore so I always tried to cry without using to much of my "tear supply"
My eyes are brown and when I was 4 or 5 I wanted to have blue eyes. My aunt told me once that my eyes would only turn blue if I drank orange juice everyday. I hated it, but I made an effort. Nowadays I'm 24 and my eyes are still brown.
When I was a child my parents told me that If I didnt go to sleep when it was my bed time my eyes would pop out
i used to believe that the reason my granddad wore glasses was all down to the teaspoon he left in his cup of tea. I asked him one day, i was about 4 at the time, why he wore glasses and he said that it was because the teaspoon he always left in his cup of tea when he was drinking it always poked him in the eye!!!! I only found out about 4 days ago that it wasn't actually true, and i'm 25 now!!!!
When I was younger I could never grasp the idea of a person being colour blind, I didnt understand how this worked, did they only see in black and white? a little while later I learned a little more and it still confuses me today. Green-Red, Red-Green, pff, who knows.
I used to believe that when you closed you eyes you were invisible and no-one could see you!
I used to think that people saw the world in their own unique colors. For instance, to me, the grass was green, and what I called green was my own special tint and shade. Someone else, however, may see the grass as the color that I called orange, but to them, orange was green. I wondered if there were some kind of scientific test that could be done to figure this all out. I was going to be the world's greatest scientist LOLOL
One kid I know believed that because I wear glasses, it wouldn't hurt if he poked my eye.
I was told that if you crossed your eyes and the wind change your eyes would stay crossed!
when i was about 7 my sister told me that people in her class used to take their eyeballs out, she refused to tell me how to do it though!
I used to believe that to get rid of the lost eyelashes that got caught just on the surface of the eyeball would escape through the eye duct and finally out the nostrils :-)
Actually, can anyone disprove it?
If you hold your finger a few inches from your eyes, at some point of focusing you see double. When I was little I thought I was seeing through my fingers and that I was slowly turning invisible.
I used to think that the reason that we are able to see is that light somehow comes out of our eyes and illuminates the scene in front of us. I apparently never thought about why this doesn't work in dark rooms!
However, I have since read that grown adults used to believe the same thing in the Middle Ages, so it must be a common misconception.
my mum used to say if i lied my eyes would change colour...when i lied i would shut my eyes
I used to think (thanks to Walt Disney) that the only difference between boys and girls was that the girls have eyelashes. See Daisy and Donald.
My dad always told me that eating carrots would improve my vision. So everytime I ate a carrot, I would look at some object and continue focusing on it as I ate the carrot. Right after I swallowed, I was sure that I could see the object much better!
My mom used to tell me that she could tell that I was lying because I had little lights in my eyes... and she still teases me because I believed her!
I can remember thinking that is I hid my eyes, and couldn't see anybody that they couldn't see me.
I used to believe that small people lived behind your eyes. They poured buckets of water out when you cried and controlled your eyes by moving the stems back and forth.
