My Boyfriend recently admitted to me that up until the time he actually felt one he believed breasts were almost completely solid. He thought (and this is the example he used) that touching them would be like holding a slightly larger than average tennis ball.
He remembers being really confused about why women wore bras as they seemed to him to serve no real function.

When my brother was about 3, he used to tell me that when we were born our butts were in front and then moved around to the back. He also believed he was born a girl and I was born a boy, and that we later switched. I, at 5 years old, was so much wiser than he and used to laugh at him.

When my sister was very young, she had the idea that she could, with the help of a pencil, push a cotton ball in one ear and out the other. It of course became lodged tight and after my Ma's valiant efforts to extract it with a Shop-Vac, finally gave in and took her to the ER.

You know sometimes when you are laying down at night, and it is quiet you can hear the blood pumping in your ears? I used to believe it was the sound of trapped bugs that had flown into my ear, marching around, looking for a way out.

My Aunt lost her arm when she was a baby due to a fire. She only had down to her elbow and she told me it was because she bit her finger nails and couldn't stop!! I believed that she had actually chewed her arm off and was VERY scared of that Aunt.

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.

This is a belief that a friend of mine had right up into her early twenties. We were talking about how little lizards or as we call them in Australia "Gecko's" can loose or let go of their tails if something grabs them by it and then grow another tail. I said wouldnt it be good if scientists could work out how they did it and somehow humans could do the same thing if we lost an arm or a leg, my friend burst out with "but I thought that we could grow back our arms or legs if they got cut off" no wonder everyone called her dilly Lee.

I used to believe that my left hand was my "good" hand and my right hand was my "bad" hand. (I mean morally, not in terms of dominant-handedness.) I think this came from the Bible verse that says something like, "Don't let your left hand know what your right hand is doing." I would feel sorry for my left hand and try to treat it well, but my right hand was always trying to get away with stuff, so I had to be stern with it. I think I had issues as a child...

I used to believe that my father had a hole on the bottom of his chin, because when he ate breakfast cereal he would eat it so fast that the milk would run down his chin and you couldn't see it till it was dripping off of his chin. Making it look like the milk was running right through his chin.

As a small child, I believed that a second set of arms would grow from one's 'underarm.' As I grew up and noticed that no one had two sets of arms, I was convinced that the second pair must grow very quickly and that first pair would fall off in my sleep and disappear.

When I was ten days old, I had menengitis. SO, while running some tests I had a spinal tap and liquid was removed form the base of my spine right? So, I have a little scar there. When I was about 4 I discovered this scar, and I had no idea about the spinal tap. So one day I went into my mom's room, convinced that I had been born with a tail, and I was angry that they'd cut it off. I ran in and said "MOM! WHY DID YOU GET MY TAIL REMOVED?" Confused, she inquired why I thought I had a tail. Sheesh

I thought I had a tail!

Before I ever lost a baby tooth, I thought that when you did, you put it in an envelope and sent off to get your permanent one which would be sent to you in the mail and you just placed it in the hole in your gum. Thank God I came to my senses when someone told me about the Tooth Fairy!

My dad told me when I was a little girl that if I kissed my elbow, I would turn into a boy. Anyone who could kiss their elbow could turn into another gender. Out of curiousity I tried for like six hours straight to kiss my elbow. I believed it for years.

I used to believe that when the school nurse checked us all for head lice, I thought they were saying they wanted to check us for "Head-Lights" After that, I really wanted to stick around and see if they found the freak kid with a couple of built-in fog lamps stowed away or something.

I was at my friends house the other day and her little brother (5 years old I think) came into her room and she was like "DAD TELL HIM TO GET OUT OF MY ROOM!" and her dad was like "Come on Sean, you can go in there untill you grow boobies."

I used to beleive that when women were breast feeding their babies, the babies were in fact blowing air into their mother s breasts, I was kind of disgusted how can a woman use her baby to make her breast bigger.

In honor of my late uncle I'd like to post this belief.

When I was around 5 my uncle slammed his thumb in the car door and it cracked so he had to go to the emergency room to get it removed. He was gone for hours and when I asked him what took so long he said that your fingernails and toenails are connected so the had to pull his toenail out too. I really thought they pulled his toenail out through his finger, and believed that toenails and fingernails were connected until I was 20.
