thunder & lightningShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
When I was small I thought that when it rained it was because God was crying because someone had dyed. Whenever it rained I thought to myself 'I wonder who dyed today'. How stupid was I!
when I was younger and it was storming at night, I thought that I did something terribly wrong during daytime and made GOD or Mother Nature real angry at me. I would lie in bed covering up/hiding from the lightning and thunder and pull all my stuffed animals around me so they could ''protect'' me! Sometimes I even hid under my bed and would sleep there! I even apologized to GOD and Mother Nature and begged for forgiveness repeatedly until either the storm stopped or I fell asleep first! OH BOY! was I ever an idiot!
When it thunders its god moving his furniture
My friend believed that when lightening flashed, you better smile because God was taking your picture!
I thought thunder was a cloud falling down on the roof.
When I was a kid I thought that when there was a thunderstorm the angels were playing a game of Family Feud in two teams of four up in heaven. God was hosting that game. I thought that whenever a contestant gave an answer that was not on the board and was a strike was when a lightning strike actually happened. I also assumed that the sound of thunder was the sound of the audience either booing to for an answer that was a strike or cheering for the family for winning the round. Rain came from the tears from the family of angels who were beaten.
i used to believe that thunder was when the clouds had lost their glasses and kept bumping into each other. well if its not than wat is it???????
My Grandfather used to tell me that when it thundered the angels in Heaven had knocked over their potatoe barrels and spilled out all the potatoes, and I always thought that that must be one humongous, gigantic barrel and a bunch of clumsy angels.
THUNDER WAS SANTA GETTING OUR PRESENTS READY FOR CHRISTMAS
I used to be terrified of thunderstorms when I was a child. Then one night one of my moms good friends came over to babysit. There are one heckuva thunderstorm. She noticed I was scared and told me that thunder was angels clapping and lighting was God shining his flash light. It worked; I was never again afraid of a t-storm.
I used to believe (thanks to my mum!) that when it began to thunder, it meant that the angels in heaven were dragging around their furniture. I would always have a mental image of a bunch of angel pushing around a dining table because they wanted to rearrange their dining room!
When i was about 4 to 5, i used to believe that when there was a thunder storm that dinosours would come outside, so i hid under a table and started crying until it was over.
When I was little, I somehow thougth that the sky had a solid ceiling. Anyway, I also thought that thunder was the sound of the sky ceiling falling closer to ground and that lightning was the sparks of the sky ceiling grinding ever closer to earth. For this reason, I was screaming my head off in panic whenever there was a thunderstorm because I thought that eventually the sky ceiling would fall right down to the ground and crush us all to death.
I USED TO BELIEVE RAIN AND LIGHTNING WAS MADE EVERTIME GOD CRIED OR TOOK A PEE OR TOOK A SHOWER
i used to believe that when it was thundering mr frost was shacking his sheets
When I was little and was riding in the car with my Aunt and Uncle it was raining and there was thunder. I asked my Aunt if the thunder was God moving furniture around. I guess I truely thought
God was moving his furniture in his livingroom.
My Aunt and Uncle just laughed and laughed.
I used to believe that lightning came down. Now I know it goes UP.
WHEN IT RAINED AND THUNDERED THEY USES TO TELL US KIDS NOT TO TOUCH OR PRESS OUR NOSES ON THE WINDOW WHEN WE LOOKED OUT TO SEE THE LIGHTENING. IF WE DID THEY TOLD US A BOLT WOULD COME DOWN AND ELECTROCUTE US. YEARS LATER IT HIT ME, THEY DIDN'T WANT FINGERPRINTS!
From an early age, I already knew that lightning was attracted to metal objects. But, I still didn't quite have all the facts straight.
One day, there was a storm outside while I was at home, in the living room, playing Mouse Trap. I was so scared to play the game because I thought that the little steel ball that came with the game was enough metal to bring the lightning crashing through the window and into the house.
One time when I was 6 and my cousin was 5, there was a storm. We were in our grandparents car and were arguing about what lightning was. I thought I was a lightbulb and my cousin thought it was a candle. Lightbulbs would make more sense then a candle, though!!
