I used to believe that if you ate any kind seed (mainly water melon) that you would get a plant growing inside your belly and after a while it would come out of your mouth and that you would die because of it. (It didn't help that my mother actually told us that this would happen either. I still dont swallow watermelon or passion fruit seeds, even though i know they wont hurt me.)
When I was little, I was told by a friend that the seeds in peppers are deadly poisonous. I'm 25, and know better, but still pick out every single one. It takes a while to prepare a stir-fry.

When I was little, I hated spitting the seeds out from watermelon, so I just ate them. My mom once informed me that watermelon would grow in my stomach.

when i was around four or five, my mother used to tell me that when you ate watermelon seeds, you'd turn into a watermelon. i of course pretended not to believe her, but one day as we munched on some watermelon, she ate the seeds instead of spitting them out. "you'll turn into a watermelon!!" i cried. she told me that was something she'd made up, and i went up to my room to play until dinner.
around six, my mother called out for me to come to the table, but i was busy playing so i didn't go. there was a knock on my bedroom door, and my mom said, "honey, are you coming to dinner?"
i turned to tell her i'd be there in a minute, and there was a WATERMELON WHERE HER HEAD SHOULD HAVE BEEN!!!! i screamed bloodly murder as the watermelon admonished me on my tardiness and told me to wash my hands before coming to the table. and then my mom dropped the melon to reveal her real head and laughed and laughed as she headed downstairs.
