Here I am laughing at what kids think. As a kid I've believed a couple of the things as well.

Until I get the to gum section. Imagine my shock to learn that gum does NOT stay in the stomach for several years like I've always believed. I had to Google it to prove myself wrong just now. I'm 34.

When I was 8 this mean girl in my school told me that her dog ate a piece of gum and it pooped out all it's organs because it stuck them all together. I believed her because she was a grade or two older than me. Soon after I was chewing gum and it fell out of my mouth and my dog ate before I could get to it. I cried for like an hour. Even after my parent's told me it wasn't true, I followed my dog around for a while waiting for him to go.

I thought that if you fell asleep with gum in your mouth you would die so you had to stick it to your head board or whatever for the next day. And if you did that it would taste even better too.

My cousin used to tell me not to swallow my gum cause i had a bone in the middle of my chest and the gum would pile on top of and if i kept swallowing it, it would eventually come out my mouth and i would have to have surgery to get it removed. How horrible hun?!

When I was little, my dad told me that my uncle could make gum come out of his ear. I believed him because I "knew" that people could make water come out their ears, so why not gum? He even had this big story about how one time it got stuck and he had to go to the doctor. The sad part is I found out he was lying when I was about 11 or 12.
