I used to believe that if I put my head under water in the tub or in a pool that it would go into my ears and into my brain. For years I could never go underwater.

I have always been terrified of water and what was in it. I used to be afraid to take a bath because I thought something might come out of the drain and get me. I had learned about sharks in school and how the water we use comes from the oceans and rivers in the same day. So I imagined sharks and other fierce biting fish swimming around in a "well area" under our house... I wouldn't go near the drain thinking they would stick their heads in and bite my toes off. I also never learned to swim because my brother told me the fish loved "kid toes". Since I usually couldn't see in the water I wouldn't go in it. I still have this fear....even though I know I no longer have "kid toes" and that fish never ate them.

I also wouldn't drink water from the bathroom sink while the toilet was flushing... I was scared the dirty water would take the wrong path and come out in my cup.

When I was little, I used to believe that the water you drank out of the water fountain, went back down into the big water tank and would keep coming back up so you were actually drinking "used " water

I believed that if you walked around water all the way, you would walk around the world not realizing that we have many bodies of water.

I used to believe that when launching your boat in the water, that it stayed on the trailor and used the wheels to drive along the bottom of the bay. I used to think the bumps and were from the wheels hitting the bottom of the bay.

when i was little,my dad would bring me to his house on the weekend.One weekend at 2:00, and the next weekend at 6:00.Anyway my dad made me believe that he could control the tides of the ocean because on certain weekends the water was low and on the other weekends the water was high.

I grew up on a farm on eastern Long Island (New York). It had a large pond from which we pumped water for irrigating the crops. My father told me that I should never go near this pond because there were hundreds of poisonous, copperhead snakes there. Not wanting to be bitten by a copperhead, I always avoided the entire area. Of course, there are no poisonous snakes?copperhead or otherwise?found on Long Island. Yet, even though I now know there?s no danger of being bitten by a snake, going anywhere the pond still makes me nervous.

I used to believe that if you stood on some seaweed on the beach, you would fall through the sand and drown in the sea below.

I thought that ice was formed by snow falling down on the water. I tried to make ice that way myself, but it didn't work. Good thing it didn't freeze hard enough to prove me right...

When I was younger I used to believe many things. Things that you would stop you in your tracks and burst out laughing. One of my most popular ones just happen to the lake. I used to live in Kentucky and there was this huge lake (I thought it was huge atleast) but anyway I believed that their were sharks in the water. It would take hours for my poor mother to persuade get me to get in and by the time I was ready to get in it would be to late. I also believed that there were bodies at the bottom just waiting for ME to find their dissolved carcus. I still believe that there are bodies at the bottom of the lake but as for the sharks I know better. Just to let you know though...I'd rather stick with the pool.

Long after I learned that in NATURAL streams water always flows downhill and never uphill, I still thought that when I saw artificial drainage ditches alongside roads, the water in them would flow the same direction all along a given road. So anytime a road went alternately uphill and down, I thought water in the ditches alongside had to somehow flow uphill part of the time to maintain its flow parallel to the road.
