I used to believe that, when someone was crying her eyes out, or her heart out, that she really did and that I could find the eyes or heart (kind of like a red velvet pin cushion in a heart shape) in the room where it had happened.

i used to believe that the term "eye sockets" was literal -- and that eyes, by definition, plugged into your head like lamps plug into walls... i was always afraid that my eyes would pop out of my head and i wouldn't be able to plug them back in

I used to believe that if you couldn't see someone then they couldn't see you. If I didn't want someone to see me I'd close my eyes - boo it didn't work!

i used to believe that if i rolled my eyes while someone hit me on the back of the head, my eyes would stay that way. i tried like mad to get someone to hit me while i did that but no one would! i even tried to do it to myself, and when it didn't work i figured i wasn't hitting myself hard enough.

The first time I went on a roller coaster, my older brother told me that if I closed my eyes, the air pressure would suck them back into my head. So I had to do my frist roller coaster ride with my terrified eyes WIDE open for the whole trip!

When I was 5 at the beach with my parents, my dad got sand in his eye, so he took his eyeball out, cleaned it, and put it back in. I thought WOW, so thats how you clean your eyes. Years later I found out my Dad had a glass eye from a fireworks accident.

I used to believe that eyes where just like bubbles and if you where to touch them they would pop.

When I was little,about 5 or 6, I used to believe that if I shut my eyes no one could see me, or anything I did while my eyes were shut. So I'd break something and then shut my eyes thinking my mom couldn't see me and what I had just done. She would know it was me and not my sister because I would just stand there with my eyes shut, but I was so cute she never got mad at me and I never got punished. Sometimes I still like to pretend that when my eyes are shut I am invisible to all.

I believed that people who had blue eyes saw everything with a blue tint, and people who had green eyes saw everything with a green tint (kind of like sunglasses). I grew up in an urban area, where, let's say everyone had brown eyes - so they were the norm and could see all colors.

I used to think that if you flipped your eyelids inside out they would get stuck. I also used to think that rolling your eyes would cause them to get stuck in the back of your head.

I used to blieve that if you crossed your eyes and the wind changed direction, then your eyes would stay like that forever

I didn't, but my cousin Kev used to believe that if he closed his eyes, you wouldn't be able to see him anymore. So when he had bust something of yours, he'd shut his eyes to hide, which of course made it all the easier to give him bash in the gob.

When I was at school (around 8 years old) older kids from the school down the road told myself and a group of firneds that if we put Vix Vaporub under our eyes then we would get high. Unfortunately it stung to high hell and we couldn't see for the rest of the day

I used to read in the dark (or dim light, anyway), and my older sister told me that if I did that, my eyeballs would pop out. Needless to say, I didn't do it again...

when I was a kid we used to play hide and seek a lot. Ant until I was 5 I truly believed that if I didn't see the others they couldn't see me. So I would sit down behind a tree or something (easy to spot) with my hands in front of my eyes so I couldn't see. Everytime I was found right away I was really confused. how could the seeeker have seen me? I couldn't see him/her

Whenever I saw the little "floaters" in my field of vision, I used to think I was
seeing air molecules. I thought I was probably the only person who could.

When I was little I'd see my little brothers' eyes moving, and I somehow concluded that mine coudn't do that. My mother had me look at a fixed object while I turned my head, and lo! they moved. But I was disappointed that they didn't zip back and forth like everyone else's.
