When I was a child I used to believe that our mind is in our chin, I guess because some people rub their chins when thinking about something.

Somehow i had become of the belief that the brain was as affectionate an organ as the heart, and therefore i would make up and sing love songs about "how my brain loves you"
It was odd however, that by age 6 i still didn't understand the concept of love, but i did understand love songs.

My best friend in elementary school was black. One time on the bus, he must have eaten a peanutbutter and jelly sandwich, and got some jelly on his arm. He licked it off his arm, and I thought he'd cut himself and was sucking some blood off of where he got cut. I believed black people had jelly-like blood.

when i was about 10 or so and in the backseat of the car, my dad said he was pulling over at the next gas station to take a dump. I exclaimed, "but you can't! boys don't have butts!" a year later it occurred to me why my family laughed at me.

"butt" I didnt know

When I was really little I thought that the cadavers used for science purposes were people that donated their bodies when they were still alive...and they were killed so they could be used for science. I dont know why I thought that no one ever told me that.

I'm glad it's not true

When I was little my parents told me that old ladis had no lips because they ate food off the floor and if I ate food off the floor I would lose my lips too...it worked but its silly that I believed that.

I used to believe everyone was born with a set number of kisses (all stored in their stomachs) to dispense to loved ones throughout their lives. I had exactly 105.

It was a belief that was instilled in me shortly after I started losing my baby teeth. My grandfather was visiting us and took out his false teeth to sleep and cleaned them in the morning. This was the first time I had seen false teeth and I made the connection that if I were more careful, I would be able to pull all of my teeth out of my mouth at the same time and be able to put them back into my mouth after cleaning or sleep. I was trying to pull out my teeth for like a week before my mom told me otherwise.

When I was elementary school age, I used to believe women had a horizontal, loaf-of-bread-shaped portrusion across their chests. Imagine my surprise. Obviously, I was bottle-fed as a baby.

Soul looked exactly like heart (anatomically correct heart, not "heart shape"), only it was on the right side of your body and it was transparent (not invisible).
That's how I imagined souls in Heaven/hell/purgatory too - hundreds of transparent heart muscles.

I used to believe that if you brain was dead, then you couldnt stay alive no matter what. Well that is technically true, but my mother recently told me of certain machines that can keep the rest of your body working while your brain is dead! Isn't technology great?
