me and my elder brother always made fun of our younger cousin. once we took showed him a dry leaf of mango tree and told him if he touched it he 'll get crumpled. Until he was 14 he would just run away whenever he saw the leaf.

I remember planting sesame seeds from the top of a hamburger bun in one of my mom's planters. I watered and checked every day for weeks waiting for my hamburger tree, but it never came.....

I used to believe that we had to be really quiet when we went mushroom hunting. Otherwise the mushrooms would hide. (My Dad told us this to keep us in line) I think it was jr high biology when I learned the truth.

My friends scared me when I ate Boysenberries. They said they were poisonberries and couldn't wait till I died so they could have all of my toys.

The shrub wasn't really even boysenberry; but I suffered no ill effects (except for the paranoia).

I used to and still believe that if I look at fungi or go near it for too long, the fungi will make my brain melt! I don't know why I think this but now I try and avoid fungi whenever I can!

i told my little sisters that the big weeds behind our house would eat them if they hurt the weeds. one of the girls stayed up all night with a golf club, waiting for the weed to come get her. the next morning, after no weed shows up, she beat the weed into puree, and threatened to come after me next. ;)

i used to believe that jade plants produced bees. i was stung by a bee while grabbing a jade plant when i was 5 while living in california. at the time it seems a logical connection.

I used to believe when I was a small boy growing up in The Bahamas that palm trees created the wind, I remember it would make hand line fishing impossible, So I would go around flipping all the palm trees off.

I used to call poinsettias "pinseltoe" because I could never remember the correct word. And "pinseltoe" sounds like "mistletoe", so that helped at Christmas!

i used to think that moss was actually hibernating moths. this was until the age of 10, when my mum finally asked why i refused to touch it (moths scare me). it still freaks me out.

I was convinced that blowing bubbles on flowers helped them grow. Naturally, why not dump an entire bottle of bubbles in the flower bed?

if you swallowed grape seeds, then, after you died, your next life would be like a vine plant growing into vineyards with grapes.

When I was little my sister and I, and everyone we hung around with, believed that common sumac (the kind with the big red conelike flowers) was something horribly deadly called "Poison Sycamoe." If you touched it, you would die. Imagine my surprise when I read in a nature book that you could brew the red flowers into a lemony flavored tea!

I used to believe that you could be arrested for picking a Golden Poppy in California because that was the state flower. My friends and I firmly believed this and once in a while we would pick a poppy from our own yards to show how "bad" we could be.

One day my dad was picking at the bark of a tree while waiting outside somewhere and told him he should stop and he said it was good for the tree. So I peeled all the bark of a tree in out front yard thinking I was making it healthy. I got spanked for it.

I used to believe that if a rose was black it was satanic. If you held one it would fly up and cut that hand off.
