This is not my belief, but a boy at my school told me he hadn't found out that girls have nipples until only a couple of years a ago (he was about 14?). He thought only men had nipples, not women. I wonder how he couldn't have known!? And for so long!

When I was a child. I used to believe that there were little elves (like the Keebler elves) that operated my body. And when I was sick, it was because the elves were fighting.

I thought for a long time that it was against the rules to put your face in your hands until you were 10 years old.

When my sister was small, she saw my mother take out her dentures, and tried to take her own teeth out. When they wouldn't come out, she was upset because hers were"nailed on" - she believed she was the only one whose teeth didn't come out on command!

I used to think you only had a limited supply of blood and it would freak me out when people told me they would donate blood. When someone would donate over and over again I would think that they were going to die soon because they were going to run out. I thought this because I would watch the news and hear of people dying of blood loss. So in my head 1 + 1 = 1.9.

My grandfather was missing a finger, and he would often tell me that I bit it off as a child. I believed this for years.

One of my uncles was born with the first two fingers on his left hand fused together. When my cousins and my sister and I were children, he would tell us that they got that way because when he husked corn on the cob, a piece of the "silk" had gotten stuck between his fingers. Even now, some fifty years later, I think of that EVERY time I husk corn on the cob.

When I was 3, my older brother told me that if I made a face then someone slapped me in the back I would be stuck with that face for the rest of my life. Of course, it didn't work if someone tripped you right after you were slapped in the back.

once when I was at the store with my dad and grandpa, I remember my grandpa buying a special toothbrush for his "false teeth". For whatever reason I interpreted "false" to mean "imaginary" and wondered why my grandfather needed a special toothbrush for his pretend teeth.

When I was a little girl I always wanted large breasts like my mom. My dad told me one day that if I blew hard on each thumb that they would blow up to be the size of my mom's one day. My parents would catch me in the car at friends houses everywhere blowing on my thumbs so I could catch up to my mom.

When I was very young, one of my mum's very good friends would come round to see us. Me and my sister liked him coming over as he liked to laugh and joke with us and we found him entertaining.

Sometimes he'd be sat on the sofa and we'd run up to him and grab his right leg nad he'd say to us "Careful now, that's my driving leg".

I was convinced that his leg was somehow special or fragile and we should be careful of it because he need it for this mysterious "driving".

It was only when I finally bought my first car 2 years ago (when I was 23) that I remembered and thought about this again and realised how much he'd been having me and my sister on.

I used to believe when women went to get their nails done, the acrylic ones, that they put their hands in a box and it pulls on their nails and makes them longer.
