I used to believe that if you went swimming in the pool of a cruise ship, you'd come back to the surface and end up in the middle of the ocean.

You know the vans with the ladders? I used to believe that you climbed those ladders to get to the swimming pool on top of the van! The weirdest part is, just a couple of years ago I met someone else who also had this belief as a child.

An older cousin told me that if you peed in the pool, the pee would solidify, drag you down and drown you. From that day on, I just kacked in the pool instead...

When I was a kid I used to always pee in the swimming pool and saw absolutely nothing wrong with this. I never understood why other people would actually get out of the pool and walk all the way to the toilet when it was so much easier to just pee in the pool. I thought I was much cleverer than them and was saving time.

i used to believe that the little bit of water that you have to walk through at the swimming baths before you go in the pool was to warm your legs up. i believed this when i was a small girl. and also when i was a big girl. only last year at the tender age of 19 was i told that you did not sit down in it to get you body ready for the bigger pool of water, but simply had to walk through it to disinfect your feet. not really sure why no-one told me until last year, i must have looked very strange. also its a bit horrible as it means i was sitting in a load of water full of bits of people's minging feet. nice.

Once when i was little i reallyr wanted to go to the pool but it was too cold so i decided to make a pool in my room. You know how in cartoons characters will fill up a room with water and when the door opens all of the water spills out like a wave?? I locked my room and started pouring water onto the carpet, and stopped after finally realizing it wasnt working.

When I was around 5 or 6, I remember asking someone what the big bubble was under the pool cover in my neighbor's backyard at the end of my street. The person told me it was a giant fat lady under there hiding, waiting to snatch up any little kids and eat them. So, everytime I would go by that house, I ran like hell.

When we used to go swimming with school we went to old Victorian baths where males and females would have bathed in different pools. I was releaved when we'd enter through the 'male' entrance (assuming it was named that to help the postman)and that the 'female' entrance was closed off because females were in fact giant spiders

I thought that the local bars advertising "pool" had swimming pools in them. I swore to myself that when I grew up I would frequent these bars and do nothing but swim all day.

Before I started kindergarten my mother told me that I would be participating in a carpool. I was so excited for school to start. About a week after school had begun I asked my mother when we were getting the car with the pool.

Since I was a baby, I've always had a fascination for the sea. One day, while living in Indonesia, I took a fish from my fish pond and dove into my swimming pool with it and swam with it, pretending I was a mermaid in an ocean and the little fish was my best friend. The poor little thing died pretty quickly because of the chlorine but it's a story that my friends love because of how innocent we all are when we're young!

My mum told my sister and I that we were moving to a house with a disco in the attic and a swimming pool in the cellar...she kept this going for weeks and my sister told all her friends at school. I spent ages trying to figure out how the water would stay in the cellar and how people could swim in the dark (cellars were always dark in my childhood imagination). When mum told us it was only a joke, my sis had to tell all her friends at school! meanwhile i was still trying to figure out if it WAS possible to have a swimming pool in your cellar and worried for weeks about electricity and the dangers of filling up your cellar with water!

After seeing "Jaws", I did not like the deep end of the pool; I thought , he could come out of the drain.

My sister, who started school four years ahead of me, was driven to school in a car pool. I couldn't wait to start school because I thought it was a swimming pool on wheels, and we got to go swimming to and from school every day.

My sister used to tell me that after swimming in the pool if I didn't wash my hair right afterwards then my hair would turn blue.

Whne I was young, my father used to carpool to work. One day he came home and said person x was retiring and that he would need to join a new carpool. Thinking this was a car with a large swimming pool in the back; I asked him if he would have to buy a new swim-suit.

Now this is really embarrassing but when my husband Dave was a boy of about 4 he watched a baptism where the baby was sprinkled with holy water and 'blessed'. Afer the ceremony, he sneakily dipped his hand into the holy water and licked it and from then on, he believed his wee was holy. BUT for years after when he went swimming, he would wee in the pool in the belief that he was blessing all the swimmers.
