Someone in my kindergarten class told me once that apple seeds were poisonous and they'd kill you in a second if you bit down on them. I believed that for a lonnnng time!
I used to be very afraid that watermelons would grow in my stomach when I swallow the seeds on accident.
I used to refuse to eat seeds because I thought they were radioactive (this was around the time of the Chernobyl disaster)
My mom told me once that if i ate black watermelon seeds, a watermelon would actually grow in my stomache.
When i was about 7 or so one of my cousins told me that if I ate a watermelon seed it would grow in my stomach. For years I never ate a seed
I was always told that if you eat the seeds out of watermelon that baby watermelons would grow in your stomach. Now I can't stand the site of it even though I know this is not true!!!
I honestly believed untill I was 13ish that if you swallowed a watermelon seed it would plant its self into your stomache, grow into a huge melon and make you explode. -and there was nothing any doctor could do about it.
***I used to believe that if you swallowed a black watermelon sedd then you would grow a watermelon in your stomach. Because when i was little my grandpa had a big belly that looked like the shape of a watermelon and he told me that he got that by swallowing a black watermelon seed and a watermelon grew in his stomach.so ever since i always made sure that i didnt eat the black watermelon seeds
<3 me always***
When I was young I belived that if you ate watermelons with the seeds, they would grow in your stomach. So I was really careful when I ate them.
My mom believes that receiving sesame seeds or substance containing sesame seeds by hand leads to disagreements between those people.
(And i didnt totally disbelieve her either.)
I used to happily hand them between people i love but never between those i usually quibble at. Good usage ha?
Again this is a friend of mine. At 6 she had been told that eggs were chicken seeds. She reasoned that she could grow a chicken tree/plant with an egg from the refrigerator. (She had a lot of plants in her room that she took good care of, even at 6). She potted the egg in dirt and put the pot near the window in her room, watering it everyday and spraying it to keep bugs away. She learned the truth when her mother asked her what kind of plant was in the pot of dirt by the window (noticing nothing was growing there even after 3 months of watering/sunshine). Her mother got the biggest laugh when her daughter said she was growing a chicken tree.
I used to belive that if i swallowed the pip of an apple a tree would grow inside me.
when i was little my sister told me that if you swallowed an apple seed you would turn into an apple. I got so terrified and i never ate to the seeds. I still dont eat to the seeds. [it became a habit.]
When i was little my sister said that if you an apple seed than you would turn into an apple.
When i was 6, My brother(5 years older) and I were eating watermelon. And just to scare me, he always said that if i eat the black seeds a watermelon would grow inside me. I've always picked out the black seeds after that.
I used to belive that if you died after eating a watermelon that if you had swallowed the seeds that a watermelon would grow inside your belly underground. So Silly!
i used to believe that if you ate too many watermelon seeds that a watermelon would grow in your stomach.
I used to believe that pregnant women got their big bellies because they ate watermelon seeds and a watermelon grew inside of them.
My sister told me that the pips and liquid inside tomatoes were poisonous, and that you were only supposed to eat the skin. I think this was because she hated tomatoes and she wanted me to dislike them too. I don't remember when I was disabused of this belief, but it must have happened, because the slimy bit in teh middle is my favourite part now.
I used to believe that if you ate a watermelon seed, a watermelon would grow inside you. I got this idea from a Rugrats cartoon where Chuckie swallowed a watermelon seed, and the other babies had to shrink and go inside him to stop it from growing. lol.
