I used to think that germs could somehow run faster that the speed of light, contaminating an object in an instant. So, I never ate off the floor, and if I picked something from the floor, I would go wash my hands.

I was asking my mom while helping her load the fireplace why she didn't just grind the wood blocks into sawdust so she didn't have to rearrange and reload the fireplace all the time, just fill it up. She explained that sawdust is combustible and could be dangerous just like how special precautions needed to be taken by people working with flour in plants (factories that manufacture flour). I listened to her whole explanation and responded with... "I never knew that flour grew in plants!" (picturing green house-type plants with cocoons hanging from the leaves filled with flour in large fields)

....So I briefly once believed that flour grew on plants. Sadly, this took place at the age of 21.

I used to believe that kids weren't allowed to have Cheese Nips. I think it was because my mom told me she wouldn't buy them because she didn't like them but as I got a little older I wondered why we couldn't eat them and thought maybe they had alcohol in them.

When I was younger, my dad used to make baby back ribs as a special dinner treat. For some reason I used to think that military-type secret agents used to break into people's homes and steal the back ribs off of babies. Being about 4 I still considered myself a baby and was always afraid that when my dad was making the ribs 'they' would break in and steal my ribs. I believed this until i was at least 10, however once I hit about 6 I was no longer a baby and therefore no longer in danger. Of course, even thinking baby back ribs were from humans I still ate them.

Learning about chemical reactions made me worried that my mom would mix the wrong things together when cooking and make some kind of poison. I refused to eat anything she made without a recipe until I was in third or fourth grade, and I was terrified that she would accidentally kill herself with her strange cakes.

When I was very little I had made a dangerous habit of eating the mushrooms that grew out of the front lawn no matter how many people told me I could die. However, one day while munchin one down, a huge BOOM erupted behind the houses on the other side of the street and a HUGE black cloud flew into the sky (we lived in a bad neighborhood near a train track so maybe it crashed or maybe a meth lab exploded, idk). I had somehow connected the mushrooms with the explosion thinking god was pissed or that that's what happened when you ate mushrooms. I ran inside the house and never ate another shroom again. (well, only recently have I started having them on my pizza) :P

When i was younger, in summer i would constantly eat mangoes. it was all i wanted to eat. Once my mum saw me hacking into about 3 mangoes at once and told me that one day i would eventually turn into a mango. Since i was only about 3 or 4, i believed her and was terrified. the next day at preschool my friend was eating a mango and i matter-of-factly told her that she would turn into a mango.
To this day i still hear laughter in my ears.

My brother used to believe that egg yolk was poisonsous and thus refused to eat it; he gave it to my dad instead, and he ate it. My bro used to brag in front of his friends saying "my dad can eat egg yolk!"

When I was little, my big brother told me that eating eggs will make me ugly like the witch from Little Mermaid. Needless to say, I stopped eating eggs all together...

I was also told that it was "death" to eat fish and to drink milk at the same time. Does anyone know the origin of this myth?

Additionally, when I was small, (about three years old), my mother would pick all of the bones out of my fish -- no filets then. She never said ainything, but I assumed that a fishbone in your mouth = instant death.

I have been and will always be psycho.
