i was 7 or 8 around the time but heres what happened.i was going to the local grocery store.in the title is said giant/drug store(giant is the name of the store).the only time ive ever heard the word drug was when our school teachers were telling us about cocaine and stuff,and didnt know the meaning of "drug" was a substance other than food that affects your body.So,i thought that the food at the store was filled with LSD or sumthing and refused to eat it!lol i was stupid

My grandpa ,and in fact my whole family, would always tell each other that only people in our family could eat watermelons & drink beer at the same time, and everyone else exploded or somehow else die a horrible death. Watermelons & beer.. what great family reunions. I was afraid for their lives, and I admired their bravery. I only hoped that one day I could eat watermelon and drink beer simultaneously without dying as well. And I can.

You know how when you make jello, it is first in a liquid form? Well when i was little i would drink that when i got thirsty and my brother would always tell me the jello will sit in my stomach and i would explode. Well that night he got spaghetti, ketchup and jello and put it all over the inside of my bed so i would think i exploded...
Needless to say, i beleived it. Now i'm 24 years old and i still won't go near jello

when I was 4, my mom once told me that spiders and scorpions and stuff lived in banana trees, so I was scared to eat bananas from stores, because I thought that when I peeled the banana, there might be a scorpion in there. heh.

when we were little me and my cousins used to eat and suck on these flowers that we found sometimes. they tasted sour thus we referred to them as 'sour flower powers'. all the adults told us they were sour because cats pissed on them. we all ate them anyways, except for my sis, because my older cousin told her that eating them would turn her into a cow.....

I used to believe that eggs bought at the supermarket were chicken eggs that could still hatch. I used to hold them in my hands so they would warm up and hatch.

I'm sure I'm not the first to add this one, but my mom instilled in all of her children the insane fear that if you don't cook your pork until it's a piece of shoe leather, you'll get worms that eat through your brain.

When i was young, my Granny, aunts, uncles and of course papa and mama used to tell us that if you didnt finish every bit of rice(we asians here have rice as staple) off your plate, whatever thats left over on it will appear of your future husband/wife's face as pockmarks and pimple. And i figured what its noodles that left over? oh man, wouldnt that be scars that would appear then?! Up till now, i still kinda believe in it.

When I was little, before I developed my perception of size, I use to be convinced I would fall down the holes in crumpets so would never go near the things!!!!

My dad told me that if I ate raw spaghetti noodles they would poke holes in my stomach and everything I ate would come out. My grandmother even confirmed it. Funny, I never had stomach problems until I stopped eating uncooked pasta.

While playing in the kitchen as my mom cooked, I asked her about the bottle of vanilla extract that she was using for eggnog. I asked what it tasted like, and she said I shouldn't try it. I asked if I drank it would it poison me and she said yes (I imagine she was suggesting that drinking the bottle would make me sick). To this day I believe that vanilla extract will poison you.
