I used to think that if I squeeze my nose shut and build a lot of pressure by breathing in my brains would come out from the ears, as ears popped. I always imagined brains to look like ground meat.

i used to believe that when i looked at someone, if i breathed in while doing so i would inhale some of their personality or looks. I always made sure to exhale when I was looking at someone I didn't like or though to be ugly. And when I liked someone I would take in a huge breath.

I used to believe that I was a bad kid because I slept with my bedroom door open, because a fireman came to my kindergarten class and told us we needed to close our doors in case of fires.
I was so scared that I would die from a fire, it overrided my fear of the dark, and i started closing my door when i went to bed.

Until I was 8 or 9, I thought the brain was a control center where a little person operated a computer, taking input from you and giving back information when asked. I always wondered if he got breaks.

Do you remember how Yogi Bear would say "Smarter than the average bear"? I used to think that there was some bear out there that was called "the average bear" that Yogi was smarter than. I always wondered why they never showed him on the show

When I was little I was obsessed with dinosaurs. I used to believe that all humans were the dream of a dinosaur and basically each person had a dinosaur counterpart. I thought whenever the humans was a awake, their dinosaur was sleeping and visa verse.

After watching a cartoon, I thought that shoes were alive and I was hurting mine when I walked in them. For a few days I walked with a portion of my feet tipped off the ground. I stopped when I decided their faces were on the top of the shoe, not the bottom.

When I was young, I used to believe that if I went into buildings with extremely tall ceilings I would float to the top. Not sure why I believed it, but I refused to go into big buildings until I was at least 8.

When I was little I somehow got it in my head that when you were riding in a car and it was storming and dark out - that if you let your feet touch or try to touch the floorboard and evil skunk would come up from the floorboards and bite your toes off.

When I was little I somehow got it in my head that beige was THE most awesome color in the history of ever. I thought beige was clear, like glass with little flecks of other colors in it. I suppose a bit like a glass kaleidoscope, or rainbow sprinkles on a white icing cupcake. I would envision my bedroom ceiling being this "beige" and I'd be able to see the stars through it and in the daytime the sun would make all the colored flecks reflect on different parts of my room.
I never did get my "beige" ceiling.

I still think my version of beige is better.

I was sure that when it was raining, it wasn't just water falling, also with the water there were worms falling, because when the rain stopped it was very normal to see wet soil and many worms on the ground. That's why I always believed if you open your mouth to taste the rain....not only water you will getˇ of course I never did it.

As I child, I was taken to the beach pretty much every summer. I used to believe that on the horizon was a man with a huge pump who generated the waves which hit me as I swam. Sometimes, when the waves annoyed me, I'd shout to the horizon on the top of my voice saying 'STOP IT, YOU'RE NOT FUNNY'.

I did get a few odd looks by passers by.
