My wife used to believe that Apple Juice was just urine. In her whole life she has never tasted Apple Juice because she is still not convinved it is not urine.
when I was little, I called coke and pepsi "Black Juice"
I used to think that apple juice was beer and I'd drink it all the time and pretend to be drunk.
I was shaking a bottle of apple juice one day, and my sister told me that if you shake apple juice, it becomes poisonous. I got so scared because I had taken a drink before that and I thought I had just poisoned myself and I was going to die.
I had my brother convinced that the Coke and Pepsi people hated each other so much that they put chemicals in the drink that would kill you if you mixed Coke and Pepsi in your stomach. So, you had to pick just one and stick with it.
When I was younger I used to believe that whenever I would drink Kool-aid that huge Kool-aid "ohh, yeahh!" guy would jump through my wall. So I never drank the stuff.
Me and my cousin had these cups, and we convinced ourselves that when we put water in the cups we could make it taste like anything we wanted. so for instance we would say "this will taste like mint!" and we convinced ourselfs that it actually tasted like that lol this went on from ages 7-10 lol
I used to think when you drank Pepsi in the winter it would make holes in your stomach. That's what my dad told me ages ago to discourage me from drinking so much of it, even though my mom drinks a lot of it. I can't even fully convince my 20-year-old self that this isn't so.
I use to think that coke and pepsi were the same and that the company just got tired of just having just one colorful can...
this isn't wat i did it about my cousin.
you know how the orange juice boxes say From Concentrate sometimes??well my cousin (when he was little)would always look at the carton and wonder where concentrate was.
When I was about 3 years old, Gatorade was only available in one flavor - my mom had always told me that Gatorade came from squeezing gators - we live in the South, so this made sense to me - however, we were in the grocery one day, and lo and behold, new flavors of Gatorade. She says that I turned to her, put one hand on my hip, gestured toward the juices with the other, and said, "How do you explain all of these?" She did - some come from southern gators, some come from northern gators, and some comes from crocodiles.
Not my belief, but I caused it.
I work at an after school care centre. There is a water cooler in the room, which is available to children, staff and other adults to use whenever they want. It's a standard model with a little container under the taps to catch any water. It needs to be emptied every now and again.
One child was pushing the lever on the tap, just to fill up the container, so I told him that if the container gets too full and overflows, it gets into the electronics of the dispenser. Because we were in an old building, the electrical system wasn't that great, and the water would go from the cooler to the circuits, knocking out the power to the whole building.
The child backed away immediately! I can't believe I made it up on the spot.
A friend managed to convince me that the layer of browngoo that form on top when you let hot chokolate cool caused cancer..
I carefully removed this for many years befor it hit me that it couldn't be true..
I used to believe that the reflection at the bottom of cup of liquid was a crocodile waiting to gobble me up.
i used to believe that the slower you poured milk into coffee or tea, the more milk you would be able to get into the cup
Beer--My mom used to tell me growing up that beer was made out of rotten potatoes and I believed it. I was in my twenties when I found out that she was lying to me. I made a comment about it to a coworker and she looked at me like I was crazy and told me the truth. How embarassing!
I used to believe that drinking (anything) while driving was dangerous so when my mom sipped her coffee in the car I would yell at her and get all upset
I always thought that whereever you saw bubbles, you saw fish. So I blew bubbles in my drink and found that there were no fish.
I used to believe that rootbeer was made from the roots of a beer plant.
When I was in elmentary school we had the deal where they gave you the talk about drinking, smoking, and all those other bad for you things. When they began talking about "drinking alcohol" I thought they meant the rubbing alcohol. I was disgusted and confused. I thought that stuff burns who would ever want to drink it?
