Youtube videos would have comments like "if you don't do xyz a girl with no face will kill you tonight". These were supposed to be commented to other videos. I was ten years old but I believed these! Then I remembered reading a book where a child called his stuffed animals the "dream police" which would keep him from having bad dreams. I tried this and of course it worked. I stopped panicking when I remembered the dream police.

Some of these YouTube comments started with "Please don't read this." For a while I actually stopped reading at that point (to follow directions lol)

In later years, I low-key believed those "repost or something good/bad will happen to you" posts online.

for a while I had a theory that we are all just toys in a giant dollhouse and the cars were some kids remote control cars and those people made different locations so us (the dolls) could go places. I thought that might be true but I wasn’t sure.

When I was around 8 or so, I made a poster with a list of instructions and tried to give it to my family. It said to make 2 copies of the poster and give them to someone else until everyone on the planet had one. They were then to report to the North Pole the following weekend (as in the weekend after I made the poster).

Once everyone was there, I planned on somehow opening a portal to a new universe, which would also have new laws of physics written by me (I had this image in my head of me typing these laws onto a computer). Among the laws were that no one could ever die and every fictional universe ever created would be made real. Once we arrived in the new universe, I planned on ruling over it as President.

I had a different version of the "Everyone but me's an alien" belief. I did think there were other humans and I had to find them, but adults were "good aliens" who'd give me clues as to the humans' location, and the kids were "bad aliens," sent to misguide me and make things tougher.

I'm autistic but nobody told me until I was eight. Up until then, people described me as "special" or "different" and I thought that meant I was destined to save the world some day.

When I was about 5, I thought you could get free paper from a printer. I thought that if you don't type anything and then click the "print" button, you could get a blank piece of paper without going to the store and purchasing it with money. I thought I was a genius, since nobody had ever thought of it before, until after a few days ago when our printer ran out of paper. That's when I discovered that you need to put paper inside the printer and that paper doesn't just magically come from printers.

I used to think I was a Waterbender (ya know, like Avatar) because when we went to the public pool and I was playing with the water, I noticed that if you push up under the water, the water jumps up a bit. Uneducated little kid I was, I thought "woah, I can control water!" I know now it was just displacement of water and I'm not a superhuman. I also thought this because I could see, talk, and hear underwater. Blissfully unaware that everyone ELSE can see, talk, and hear underwater too.

When I was young, I used to think the Santa Claus existed. With my brother, we put flour on the floor. The next day, we checked and there were footprints in the flour.
One day, when I was 13, my father told me it was him
who made the footprints with his boots.
I was frustrated but it was funny.
