When I was little my mom told me not to eat the seeds of a watermelon cause it would grow in my stomach. Well I remember seeing a lady in the grocery store that was pregnaunt. I stared at her for awhile, then told my mom to look. She didn't know why I told her to look at this lady, until I whispered that she must have eaten a watermelon seed.
My grandparents as well as parents all told me that if i swallowed the watermelon seeds, it'll start to grow inside my stomach and a watermelon tree will grow through the top of my head. Naturally, the theory applied to all other fruits.
I still don't understand what's the big deal with swallowing the seeds? is there really any harm at all?
i thought that the little seeds on hamburger buns were hamburger seeds...and i tryed to grow a hamburger once or twice... :)
My brother was never the nicest kid in the world. It didn't help that when I was younger, I was also gullible enough to do just about anything. So, naturally, when my aunt sent one those wreaths made from dried chile peppers, my brother had to take advantage of it. He told me that the seeds tasted just like bubblegum, which I was pretty obsessed with then. So, I unwittingly ate at least a spoonful of them, not remotely tasting the bubblegum that had been promised. I was rather sick for the rest of the day. I did get back at my brother, though, as I threw up all over him.
When I ate watermelons, I used to swallow the seeds beacause I didnt like to spit them out. One day, I was at my brother friend's house, my brother's friend said "If you swallow the seeds again, after 5 minutes your stomache will exploed!" I was soo freaked out when I heard this I stopped eating watermelons. (not)
Long ago I was told that if I ate watermelon seeds, then a watermelon would grow in my tummy and it would explode!
Dad used to say that if I swallowed a watermelon seed, a plant would grow out of my ear. I thought about it for a while and came to the conclusion that it could work because my earwax would be the perfect substitute for soil.
when i was about 5 or 6 my mum always told me to be very careful not to swallow any watermellon seeds because if i did a watermellon would start growing in my tummy and no body would ever be able to get it out. i believed this because my older sister told me our dad (who had a very big belly) had swallowed some seeds and he had a watermellon in his tummy... he still has a big belly maybe its still in there.

My older sister once told me that if you swallow a black watermelon seed that it would grow into a watermelon in your tummy. I would only eat watermelon if all the black seeds were taken out. Come to think of if I still take out all the black seeds.
When I was young, I was told that when eating fruits such as watermelons which has lots of seeds in it, if you accidentally swallow those seeds, a watermelon plant might just grow on top of your head. Same goes for other fruits like oranges or grapes. And I believed that until I was like 7 years old when common sense finally kicked in.
When I was a young child I believed that if you ate seeds, like while eating watermelon, that they would grow inside of you.
