top belief!

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.

When I was a kid I used to believe that if you rubbed your eyeballs too hard that they would fall back into your head. This meant that you would no longer would be able to use them because they would be floating around inside your head.

I was always told that if you crossed your eyes for a period of time, they would stick like that.

Tell me I was not the ONLY kid who BELIEVED that If I made a face, it would freeze that way forever.... And along with that was the crossing of the eyes.....

When it's twighlight, your vision goes sort of grainy. I used to believe that this was because I could see air molecules.

My cousin told me that when you lie you get crosses in your eyes. I think I believed that for about a week, because I was a big liar and would try to lie to myself in the mirror to see if i could see any crosses. Unless he meant that you would go cross-eyed if you lied too much. It's hard to understand his english sometimes.

Until I was approximately a junior in high school I thought that if you pulled the top part of your eye lid up and the bottom part of your eye lid down and then looked down at the floor your eye would fall out.

I guess I was told when I was young that if you crossed your eyes, they might stay that way. I believed this until I was in my late 30's, despite all experimental data to the contrary.

When I was very young I had a lazy eye, and so suffered from double vision until it was corrected. If I was looking at say a chocolate bar, I'd think that if I concentrated really hard, I'd be able to grab the double and have two!

Because of a scene in a Disney movie, I beleived you could remove and reapply your own, real eyelashes. Only now do I see they must have been fake eyelashes
