When I was about five, my older cousin told me that cashmere was made from the skin that was punched out when you got your ears pierced.
I doubt I believed it even at the time, but I still cringe when someone walks by me in a cashmere sweater!
i use 2 belave white ppl had white blood and black ppl had black blood ik it sounds raciest but im not raciest at all lol and this was when i was like 9 or 10.
when i was little i thought that a piercing gun used to pierce ears was a regular gun with an earring in it and some one would stand back and shot it into our ear
My mom used to put on a "Alien Skin" mask, (you know the facials you use that are like avocado and aloe vera used to cleanse your skin and poures.) Well when i was about 7 my friends would come over and my mom would put one on and then after it dried she walked in the living room/playroom and started peeling it off and my friends and i would get scared because she would be like" Some day your going to have to do this to because when you guys get older you're going to turn into ALIENS!" And then she would start laughing so i knew she was kidding but the other kids stayed up all night asking their parents if they were Aliens, and the moms would get mad at my Mom.
-Haha......Good Times!!!! :)
I used to believe everybody was born white and that they became black only if they spent a lot of time under the sun.
I used to believe if you stayed in water too long your skin would get really wrinkled and stay that way.
I have a mole on my stomach and not until a few years ago did I realize that it really was a MOLE... not the result of a cockroach bite from my baby years. I'm 17 years old.
You know how your skin peels off when you've had a sunburn or when you get a blister or anything like that? Well I believed that if you peeled the skin enough, you would eventually peel through to the bone.
I have second degree burn scars on my arm from pulling a hot cup of tea down on myself when I was a toddler. I don't remember actually doing this (thank goodness), so they were something of a mystery to me when I was little.
Somehow I got it into my head that I was burned by lava. I had a whole scenario worked out in my head with my family and I jumping from island to island in a river of lava when some of it splashed up and burned me.
Now, I also had a lot of problems with my ears when I was little (as most kids do), so one day my doctor was flushing out my ears and had to use a pair of tweezers to get a piece of hardened red-ish wax from my ear. Belief confirmed! Obviously this was a bit of lava that had splashed into my ear at the same time I burned my arm.
When i was little i was sitting on my mum's lap and i touched her upper arm and it wobbled and felt like it was full of liquid so i said "Mum! Why is your arm all full of water?!" I thought she was sick or something. She laughed and explained the concept of "bingo wings".
I used to think that when lighter people got a tan they went darker and when darker people got a tan they went lighter.
me my cousin and my brother used t picked n my younger girl cousin because she had loads of freckels and my auntie used to shout at us and say to her that they were fairy kisses and that only special people got them. and she still beliefs itow and shes 13
When I was in kindergarten, I used to think that if you didn't take baths then all the dirt would build up on your skin and grass would grow on you.
I used to believe clip on bow ties were inserted into your throat and that is how they stayed in place
This is actually a belief of my niece, who was about 10 when this little gem was unveiled. She comes from a very overbearing family and is never around non-white individuals. Once, while visiting my family, we all went to a grocery store and my niece happened to see an African-American woman breast feeding her baby. Very loudly, so everyone can hear, she asks if bl*ck women make chocolate milk, since they aren't like us. I was never so embarrassed in that store.
My family had these two huge white cats with this thick, long fur when I was really little. They were actually brothers from the same litter (named Bo & Luke...Dukes of Hazzard?) One day I parted one of the cat's hair and saw white skin. I checked the other cat's skin and I could swear that I saw dark brown skin (probably dirt or a freckle). Since they were brothers with different colored skin- I was convinced that my caucasian pregnant mom was going to give me a black little bro or sis.
I thought that a birthmark was your date of birth stamped on your skin when you were born, like an "approved" stamp and everyone had one. When my mom told me I had a tiny one on my back, I spent hours looking in the mirror trying to find this stamp!
when i was younger i used to think that if a person with different color skin touched me it would change that part of my skin color too their color.
NO OFFENCE TO ANYONE..i was young and wierd!!
When I was really little I thought that all kids were white and that people's skin changed color at puberty. I use to wonder what color I would turn out to be.
When I was a kid, my older brother told me that black people were made that way on purpose. Like if you had a baby in the summer when you were tan, that baby would be born with a darker, sort of olive skin tone. And then when that baby grew up and had a kid, if it was in the summer and the mother was tan, that baby would be even darker, so of course if a darker-skinned person had a baby in the winter, the skin would be lighter.
Yup, I believed that a good portion of my life.
