I used to think that maybe people had miscounted, and we actually had 11 fingers. I used to lie in bed and carefully count my fingers over and over, to make sure there were actually 10.

When I was younger I used to chew on my hair a lot, so my brother told me that if I chewed my hair that I would turn inside out. Needless to say, I never chewed my hair ever again and only when I was in my teens did I realize that it was all just a joke.

When my Fiancee was little her dad used to tell her she had to wash until she was "squeaky clean". She still uses her finger on her chest to see if it squeaks. She's 29.

I was told that if you sleep with a bra on your breast wouldn't grow. Now it's impossible for me to sleep in a bra because it doesn't feel comfortable, and yet I still have small breast.

When my older sister was younger, she thought that her toenails would fall off if anyone touched them. She's still afraid to let anyone touch her feet.

When I was five, I asked my dad why the right hand was called right. Was the left hand wrong or bad? He must have thought the question was funny, and told me that yes my left hand was my evil hand, and that is why I must do everything right handed. Ever since then, when I knowingly do something wrong, I do it left handed.

when I was a little kid, I was told that if I bleed any part of my body, like my hands or knees, the food that I ate will get out with the bleeding. This belief succeeded in making me stop crying n paying more attention to the scar instead.

My parents always told me that when you make funny faces and the clock turns 12 your face would be that way forever.

I didn't know what "cleavage" meant. I had never heard the word until seventh grade. I figured it out pretty quickly, but before that I thought "showing cleavage" meant wearing pants so low that your butt crack showed.

I used to believe that the soul was an actual physical organ of the body like the liver or the stomach.

It was yellow, and shaped like a lighning bolt. About 20cm long it sat just under the left brest.
