I used to believe that if you were blindfolded, you would see whatever colour the blindfold was. I was quite scared when someone blindfolded me with a coloured scarf, and I only saw black!
When i was only three I saw an old movie where people had random glass eyes or something and i thought most people had glass eyes cause it made sense eyes are very sensitive. So i would try to poke people in the eyes cause i wanted to see if they had one.
i used to believe that i had a camera in my head, and that when i blinked i could take pictures and would always remember them. my granny crushed this idea when i told her of this amazing photographic brain i had by reminding me i had a 'memory'!
When I was little I always believed that if you hid somewhere, even if it was behind something as thin as a pole, and you couldn't see anyone else then they couldn't see you either. I remember hiding behind something really thin and asking my friend if she could see me and of course she said yes. That pretty much caused me to believe otherwise.
i used to believe that if you rolled your eyes back and someone hit you on your back your eyes would stay like that forever..so every time i rolled my eyes back i would make sure no one was behind me..wait..is that true?
My son could never understand how I knew what he was doing when my back was turned (if it was naughty) and i told him that when mummys had babies they grew a second pair of "back eyes". From the age of three until almost five he would keep trying to find them.
Whenever I played outside my parents would say that I could go as far as I like, so long as they could see me. And that if I could see them, they could see me. Using this logic I came to the conclusion that by closing my eyes, they wouldn't be able to see.
Many of my friends also had parents that told them this, and we had all come to the same conclusion. This made playing hide and seek very confusing.
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 think that if you were blind you had to have your eyes closed.
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
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 !
I used to believe that if I read all night in the dark (with very little light) that my eyes would get used to it and I would eventually get natural night vision, like cats. Needless to say I am now an English major with 20/400 vision.
I used to think that if you rubbed your eyes with different pressures that one of them would pop out more then the other one... I believed this until I was about 11
One day, I became obsessed with the thought of what kept my eyeballs in their sockets. I was leaning over a bowl of applesauce, with my eyelids half closed (the better to keep my eyeballs in my head), when something plopped into the applesauce. I immediately shut my eyelids tight. Only after what seemed an eternity of terror did I carefully open one eye at a time (my hand cupped to catch a loose one). After I realized that neither had fallen into the applesauce, I turned to see my older brother smiling. He had tossed a small crayon into the bowl.
I used to believe I could actually see though my hand! I have extremely poor vision in my right eye, legally blind, can't see the big E on the eye chart. When I covered my right eye, I could see fine with my left eye. When I covered my left eye, I could barely see. I didn't realize I was looking with my nearly blind eye, and was excited to know I could actually see through my hand. I never told anyone my secret power!
I was watching a show called Pete and Pete on Nickelodeon when I was younger. The older Pete said something about how everyone's eyeballs roll all the way back in their head when they close their eyes (at least that's what I got from it) and I believed it. I still try to see if it's true by blinking really fast.
I had poor eyesight but had never had an eye test, so no one knew. I thought everyone saw what I saw. So I assumed that adults were stupid and incompetent, since obviously no one could read street signs, or the chalk board in class.
my brother used to believe that everybody except him could see their eyeballs
I used to believe that people with brown eyes saw tree bark as brown and, since my eyes are grey/blue, tree trunks looked grey to me.
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.
