I used to think that my family were the only people who wore underwear. There was no reasoning behind this - I just assumed it was true.

I'm 12 years old right now(10 days until I'm 13) but when i was little i used to like the gargoyles cartoon. one day for some reason i started to believe that this entire life is a dream and that i will wake up in a futuristic world where everyone is a gargoyle and then when i go back to sleep again in that world i would have to go through another life and so on and so on...

When I was in 1st grade- 3rd grade I used to belive that there was another world inside my desk; like the erasers were cars and the pencils were people and that my pencil case was a mall and so on. So whenever I cleaned my desk I'd make sure there was enough room for my pencil's to drive the erasers around my desk. I thought that I was their god and that Earth was also some kids desk to, so I was always nervous when getting dressed and stuff. I don't know how I came up with this

I have been reading the Harry Potter books for a long time. I was convinced that on my 11 birthday, i would get a letter from Hogwarts telling me to come there, and then i would go there when school started again. I beleive this up until I was in 6th grade... I was truly broken hearted when no letter came in time for me to start the new school year at Hogwarts

when i was in kindergarden i had a friend who told me that all girls should like boys that i should have a crush on someone.of course this was back when boys where icky so i thought i was wierd. so when she asked if i had a crush, i said the frist boy i thought of. and she told him, so i thought that means i needed to like another boy. i told her someone else and (of course) she told him. this went on til i had named every boy in our class.

When i was a child i thought everytime i did something that i wasnt supposed to be doing it would come up on my moms camera and when she developed the pictures it would have a picture of me doing that specific thing i wasnt supposed to be doing and i would get in HUGE trouble.

good thing i know now that someone actually has to TAKE the picture.

When I was young, my sister "tootie" told me that I came from a Doody-bird. She claimed that a Doody-bird flew over the house and pooped on a rock, that poop on a rock became me and my parents scooped me up and let me live with them. I went to school and told everyone, oddly I thought that this made me somewhat "cool"...Then of course my second grade teacher Mrs. Hasper told my mom that I would never add up to anything because I told stories and lied all the time."

When I was younger I believed that my whole life was a dream and that some day I was going to wake up as a baby.

I also used to think that humans were part of giants doll houses and that the giant kids controled every thing everyone did.

I used to believe when i was around six or seven that we were all little dolls being controlled by bigger people or bigger dolls that were controlled by even bigger dolls. I had a very strong imagination

When I was in Kindergarten, we had naptime every day. well, I believed that i could secretly send messages in my mind to other people in my class. Like, in my head, i would say hi to my best friend. At first I was mad that nobody ever replied to me, but then I realized that they just must be asleep. It amazed me how people can fall asleep so fast!

I used to (and kind of still do) believe that the entire universe is just the imagination of a little kid in some other place- if that makes any sense.
She'd imagine everything about our world, and she wished and convinced herself so hard, that she actually started believing that we're really here- and we're all just a part of her mind.
Another theory I had, was that all my years in life is just a dream, and when I wake up after I die, I'll be in some sort of "simulation game of life in the past" kind of thing, and it'd be sometime in the future.
...
I don't know if i made any sense just now.

I was convinced that children weren't humans, only adults were, children were a total different race!

I used to believe that everyone was psychic and had all kinds of extra-sensory abilities but, since I was really bad at it, no one talked about it while I was there so I wouldn't feel bad.

Whenever we would go to the beach, I would sit at the edge of the water and talk to the waves. (This was around ages 5-11.) I was convinced that the waves were alive, and they were coming to school, where I was the teacher. Maybe this had something to do with schools of fish...

If I swallowed anything while looking at someone, I'd gain their qualities and be more like them. I still have trouble swallowing while looking at anyone I don't like.

This is really odd, and I still can't help but think about it at random intervals of my life... but I used to believe I had to be completely covered by my blankets when I went to bed, or the parts of me that were left uncovered were portals to my mind. And my best friends and my parents would read my mind. It made sense at the time, seeing as the parts that were being touched by air were always, um, colder than the other parts............I was an idiot.

When I was younger, a group of my friends and I believed, when we were in our mothers' stomache, a spirit wolf came into the womb and planted a seed in us that gave us the ability to become wolves. We could only become wolves at night time, though, and we couldn't remember what happened in our wolf form, but if we concentrated very hard we could "remember". We made up stories about being a wolf and told eachother. We even had descriptions of what our wolves looked like. One time my friend even told me she could see me begin to "transform", after which I quickly went to sleep so the transformation would not be painful.

When I was in kindergarten, I first realized I could bend farther than the other kids. I later found out this was called being double jointed, but back then all the kids would say my real dad must have been Mr. Fantastic (from the Fantastic Four, the guy who stretch himself out really far and can literally roll himself into a ball, etc.). I always thought this was stupid, because I knew who my 'real' dad was. But when I was 13, My parents told me I was adopted, and when I asked what my father looked like, they said they never saw him. Needless to say, I was now convinced the kids were right.
