my mum used to say that if you made lots of noise when you saw a rainbow it would frighten it away, even now, I still have the urge to stay completely still and quiet whenever I see a rainbow - the power of nature eh!!!
Till I understood the meaning of the phrase "Every cloud has a silver lining" I always used to look at the clouds and search for the silver lining and could never find one.... :-)
i used to believe until i was 7 or 8 that if u pass a rainbow your sexuality will change :D and i remember how i was chasing a rainbow to become a boy, but i never reached:(
for a vividly long time i thought that rain water was Gods bathtub draining out his used bathing water on us.
I was 4 years old and it was my first time in the Netherlands. It was pretty cold outside and being from a tropical country, where it's always 30 degrees, I asked my mom if they could turn off the airconditioning.
I used to believe the expression, it would rain cats and dogs. I thought it's an actual phenomena --
Of course that's when i was young and know little english
i used to believe i could control wind by fighting it to kill it lol yea i must of looked like a real dork at school
I used to believe that at night, the dark clouds in the sky were actually monsters out to get me, causing much hiding behind the curtains.
Life was v difficult, considering I live in Manchester, England- where a clear sky is a rare occurence....
when i was 5 or so i used to beleive the weather had something to do with where god was living such as thunder was when he moved his furniature rain was when he pulled the plug after a bath and lightning was him flicking the lights on and off
When I was young, I used to think that windmills in fields started the wind.
When I was around four,I used to think when it rained in my area,it rained over the WHOLE world too...
When I was about 5 I thought that the clouds were cotton candy and when I got taller I would be able to pick it and eat as much cotton candy as I wanted. My brother told me that when it rained God and Satan were fighting over rice in a pot that when God won( which he always did) Satan would cry and throw over the pot and the rice and Satan's tears would mix and make rain.
I used to believe that I could order nice weather. This was something my sisters had put inside my head, but I kept on saying things like "Don't worry, I'll order some sun" and "If only my order gets through to the weather man" until I was about 8 or 9 years old. When my oldest sister then politely told me that it was all rubbish, my mother claim I said "Oh, I wondered if he didn't like me anymore" as the weather had been very wet the past month.
When I was little, I used to think that fog was made out of cotton candy. When ever it was foggy, I used to go out and try to eat it. It always dissapointed, becuase it tasted bland. it wasn't until I was 7 that my cousin told me it was water vapor.
When I was little, and not so little, I used to think that when people were saying wind chill factor they were saying windshield factor. It made sense to me; afterall, I imagined the weathermen taking the temperature of the windshield as the wind was hitting it to determine the actual temperature outside.
I used to think that when you saw a rainbow there would be a little green leprechaun sitting there with a pot of gold, and if you tried to steal the gold he would push you into the rainbow and your body would get boils and burn to death...
I believed that when I was little that if you ate a piece of a cloud that floated down into your bowl of soup that it would taste like a marshmellow and that you'd slowly float back up in the sky
I used to believe that where the sun peeks out from the clouds was where heaven was found.
I used to think that when it rained wherever I was, it rained all over the world at the same time. I also used to think that all the tv shows were live.
I used to believe that at night, the weather slept at night. That was the only thing that got me to sleep because I was around 5 at the time and I was scared of thunderstorms at that age. I learned the truth when a thunderstorm came at night. I asked my mom why the thunderstorm was up late at night. He he.
