I used to believe that skinny dipping means you have to be skinny to do this. I found out what it REALLY meant, D:

When I was about 7 or 8 I thought that when my parents told me not to get near our pool cover was not because I would drown with it pulling me down but rather there were sharks under there. So when it was back half way I would literally take goggles and try to see them on the other side of the pool but stay really close to the shallow end wall.

I used to belive that there were lobsters in the pool filter and people would take them and eat them, I dont know why i guess it looked like a lobster trap!

When I was about 4 or 5, my older cousin had told me that snakes come out of the pool filters. To this day I'm still kinda creeped out about that.

I used to be afraid to swim in the deep end of our pool if no one else was in the pool. For some reason, I believed piranhas would come out of the filter and eat me.

I used to believe, at night, sharks inhabited the dark recesses of the deep end of our pool. Even now, as an adult, I get a slight shiver across my skin as I swim to the deep end of the pool at night.

One summer afternoon when I was around six years old, the family was at my aunt and uncle's house for some sort of party. I was in the pool, and my dad and his cousins were watching me, making sure I didn't drown. As I was swimming, I wondered out loud if my uncle could buy a slide for his pool. My father, who I suppose was bored and possibly a little drunk, decided it would be fun to tell me there was a slide.

I swear, I looked for that slide for thirty minutes straight. And every time I asked where it was, someone would point to the opposite side of the pool and say, "It's right there!" until my dad decided to stop torturing me and told me there wasn't a slide.

For years, I thought that slide had disappeared off the face of the earth, and I was the only person who didn't get to see it before it "left"

I believed that swimming with the light on in the pool was fine at night, but if the light was turned off in the pool that the drains in the pool would open and sharks would swim in and get me. I could only scare myself for 1-2min of swimming w/ light out in pool before I would get out & turn it back on. How I thought the sharks swam through 8in holes I do not know

when i was litttle, i was in a after school program at the YMCA, and we went swimming everyday for about 30 minutes. They told us that if we peed in the pool, a red colour, like blood would surround us. And they would have to evacuate the pool.

When I was little my younger sister convinced me that there where sharks in the deep end of the swimming pool. Now I hate swimming in water over my head!

When I was about 9 years old I was all into watching shark movies such as jaws and so on. At this time I lived in a mobile home park where my mom would take my brother and I down to the pool to go swimming. Now though I loved learning about sharks and watching them...I was terrified of them! So when we would go swimming I believed that somehow where ever there was water...there could be a shark. (Except of course the bath tub at my house because nothing scary or bad could be somewhere that my parents lived.) so to say the least every time we would go swimming I had this thing that if I went into the deep end I had to be the first one to pass the blue line separating the deep end from the shallow and the first one crossing it to come back or the bottom of the pool would open up and a shark would come out and eat me. ! honestly did this and had it in my head until I was like 12 haha

i remember an episode of Are You Afraid of the Dark where there was this nasty hairy slimey monster in a pool that drowned people, and from the time i saw it til i was about 13 i would never go to the middle of a pool no matter how deep it was for any reason. not even with a group of people.

I used to believe that if I swam long enough in my pool or in the ocean with my legs together, I would turn into a Mermaid and could play with Ariel. I think a part of me still believes that.

I used to believe that those vans you see with the ladder on the back that leads up to the roof actually went up to a pool that was on top of the van.

When I was little, I was at the pool and my sister told me not to blow water out the end of those hollow floating things or i would get meningococcal.
I had never heard of it before and i thought she said i would get a ninja cockeral.
I didn't ever do it again.
