When I was little my mum used to tell me that my eyes would turn green when I lied so I would stand in front of the mirror and say things like, "I am 100 years old" or "I am a boy".

My mum said it only worked for proper lies like, "It wasn't me" and "I didn't do it" and only mothers had the power to see this transformation

My friends parents used to tell her, when there was a teacher strike, instead of explaining what it was, they used to tell her that she was sick. They also used to tell her that when the ice-cream truck was playing its song, it meant that they were out of ice-cream

Once me and my friends were friends with this really unpopular kid who was seen as 'uncool'. So we decided to amuse ourselves as well as trying to help him out by making a potion that would make him as cool as we were. We got a bowl and put in milk, marshmallows, orange juice and soy sauce- the special ingredient. Then we convinced the poor kid that if he drunk the potion, it would make him 'cooler'. Luckily it didn't poison him, just left a bad taste in his mouth. After he drunk it he asked "am I cool now?" of course he wasn't any different.

We're still the best of friends today and ironically he is very popular in high school.

When I was five, I really admired my six-year-old cousin and believed everything she said. One day she had received a toy doctor's set, with a stethescope, nurse's hat, tongue depressors, bandages and a plastic pair of scissors. When I asked what they were for, she told me they were used to cut off patient's fingers if they weren't able to fix them. For years I refused to even pick them up in case I accidentally lopped off a finger.

My Grandfather told me that when he was small he had been brought up in a childrens home (this is true) and that children were given porridge every morning for breakfast (also probably true). He said the porrige was made in an enormous pot over an open fire and was stirred by a small child standing on a plank suspended over the pot. One day this little boy fell into the porridge and the kids at the back of the queue had to scrape the porridge off his body so they could have some breakfast (my Grandfather being one of them, of course). I believed this well into adulthood, and even repeated the tale to friends and work colleagues. It was only when someone had the guts to laugh at the story that I realised my Grandfather had embroidered the truth somewhat.

My dad was in the Navy when I was small so I grew to love all things naval. We would watch all of the war films, especially the naval ones. There was one film which showed the men in the torpedo room wearing white masks on their faces whilst loading the torpedoes. "Why do they wear those masks, dad?" I asked. He replied, "That's only the men with false teeth - it's so they don't fall into the tube and jam the torpedoes." This is another one I truly believed and even relayed this knowledge to others!

When I was a child my dad was in the Navy. He used to tell me stories when he was home about life at sea. He said he loved standing on the deck as the sun was going down at the end of the day. He told me that just as the last of the sun was disappearing beneath the horizon, at the very last second, there would be a BIG BLUE FLASH before the darkness of night. I hung on his every word and truly believed this. I related this wondrous "fact" to others throughout my life until one day, when I was about 22(!) he overheard me and laughed, and said, "You didn't believe me, did you?" This is one of many stories . . . .

My horrible older brother told me that I came free with a box of washing powder and that is why my family had to keep me.

About four years ago my brother and I were talking and we somehow got onto the conversation of cross-dressing (he was around ten at the time). For some reason I told him that Ronan Keating (the singer) was cross-dresser. I never thought any more about it until one night about a month ago when he mentioned it and I reluctantly had to inform him that I had been joking! The poor boy had believed that for four years!

My horrible cousin once told me that when girls turned 8 they changed into boys, and vice versa boys into girls. I totally believed him, and although I was a bit of a tomboy the thought of actually BEING a stupid mean boy with a stupid floppy willy horrified me so much I was in floods of tears for the rest of the day, it took my parents ages to convince me it wouldn't happen. It seemed so unfair, you know?

When I lied my mom would say "Your nose is growing!" and I believed her since pinocchio's nose grew.So, whenever she told me I'd grab on to my nose and scream " TAKE THAT SPELL OF ME!!!!" since the fairygod mother put a spell on pinocchio.

***When i was little i used to wonder why some people had plump soft lips while others had small hard lips......then my little 4 year old mind came up with the idea that....if they told lies their lips would get smaller and if they said bad words their lips would get all hard and chapped.Then one day i took an oreo and my mom asked if i did and i said no...and right away i looked in the mirror and my lips looked smaller!! but it was just my imagination lol......but i still do not say bad words because i am still kind of worried if they will make my lips get all crusty lol....even though...if it did happen...there is always chap stick lol...but yeah...that's what i used to believe **hehe**

When I was little we drove by a nuclear reacter in a near by town. I asked what it was but my parents did not want to tell me the truth... That day it was clear blue skys and white puffy clouds so they told me it was a "cloud maker". I believed this until I was much older and in school.

When we drove by it on a fieldtrip the teacher asked us what we thought it was and I argued with her when she told us it was a nuclear plant. I got written up for that. Thanks, parents!
