I was told by mum when I was little(and used to believe it until I was a teenager) that when you told a lie your eyes turned green!!

For awhile, I went without realizing that people *myself included!* blinked. It just didn't occur to me, until one day I noticed my aunt blinking, and asked if she was tired. She told me she was blinking, and I was so confused! lol. Afterwards, I promised i'd make a concious effort to blink, even though I did it naturally anyway. :-P

My sister was told at a young age that if you crossed your eyes and someone hit you on the back, that they’d stay that way. Fast forward fifteen years at her high school graduation party when she found out that my mom was pulling her leg. Her friends still tease her about that. (So do I!)

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.

when I was 6 i thought that (I have no idea how I started thinking this) if you squirted lemon juice in your eyes they would turn yellow. Having blonde hair I figuered that yellow eyes would match with my hair. One evening my family and I went to and fancy resturant. I ordered water with lemon slices in it. I took a peice and pressed it just above my eye and--well you can kind of picture what happened after that.
A week later being the logical kid i was, I took an orange slice and dripped the juice in my eyes. Again just try and picture the result.

My mom would say i could poke my eye out with a pencil, and I thought that if you touched your eyeballs with any part of a pencil, your eye would fall right out of the socket.

You know how you somethimes see those long little germy thingies floating across your eye when you're staring into nothing? Well, I used to think that I could magically see microscopic organisms and that I had some kind of super power. Anyway, I learned later that those thinga are just bacteria or sumthing floating across your eye, professionally nicknamed, "floaters" and that everybody sees them. o well...

Until I was around 10 years of age, I thought that all the squiggly and swirly things you saw in your eyes were actually molecules. Everybody talked about how tiny molecules were and that no body can see them but I kept thinking..."Oh, yeah? I can see them!". I am a grown up now and I still wonder how they know they have split the atom...if an atom is too small to see, how can you possibly see half of one?

I used to eat alot of green olives. When I was younger, my Dad told me I had green eyes because I always ate green olives. I believed him for a very long time.

My eyes are hazel and change color. When I was little I though that when my eyes looked green it was because I ate pickles so much.

When I ws in primary school, so up to about age 9, I used to think only girls had different coloured eyes, like blue or green or hazel. I thought boys all had dull coloured eyes, all mid-brown or grey - if I had known the phrase "neutral colours" back then, that's what I'd have used to describe boys eye colours. I also used to think some girls might have pink or yellow or purple or multi-colour "glitter" colour eyes. I was so jealous that I was glad when I eventually figured out that wasn't the case. I remembered this belief when being offered many different shades of contact lenses at the opticians, I had forgotten all about it, it made me smile.

I used to believe that people could only recognize me from the front of my face, mostly my eyes. I thought that if they saw me from the side or from behind -- or if I covered my eyes -- they wouldn't be able to tell who I was.

When I was four my elder sister told me that the white tear ducts in my eyes were actually full of spider eggs that spiders laid there while I was sleeping. She said that everytime I cried the spiders would be born on my face. I didnt cry for weeks.

i used to believe that whatever color your eyes are then that would be all you could see. Like if you had blue eyes everything would be blue. It never occured to me that I didn't see everything in brown the color of my eyes.

I used to believe that everyone else could move their eyes except me because I couldn't see my eyes move left or right in the mirror.
