When I was younger my brother told me that if i went up to the tv screen and looked down i would be able to see the bottom half of the actors' bodies.
My mom told me that if you get eyeliner in your eye, you go blind.
When I was little my dad told me that if I chewed on aluminum foil I would pick up radio stations.
My parents used to tell me they were my 'fake' parents and that my real ones were in jail for life.
When I was 4 my 14 year old sister would often babysit me. When I misbehaved one time, she said she was going to call the police and they were going to take me to Mexico. I asked her what Mexico was and she said it was a place where bad kids are locked up in cages. This terrified me at first, but after awhile I decided there couldn't really be a place like that so I stopped worrying about being sent there.
Well, when I went to kindergarten there was a map of the world in class. I remember the day the teacher showed us," Here is the United States and here is Mexico." I shouted "Oh no, Mexico is real?" and I became very upset....I went home and told my sister and parents I would never be bad again because I never want to be sent to Mexico!
I convinced my sister when she was about 7 that pressing on a bruise made it heal faster. I told her if it hurts that's how you know it's working. Then I silently laughed while she winced while doing it.
when i was younger my mam used to say that the tv didnt work when it was sunny outside, so we had to go outside and play...me and my brothers believed her for years
When I was little, my mom told me that if I slept with socks on they would eat me alive.
I used to believe that "Yesterday" and "Tomorrow" were actual days of the week, and that they both had a day of the week for which they were a double. I would ask my parents, "what day of the week is tomorrow?" and they would say "Thursday". And I would be outraged, because the last time I asked that question, they had said that Tomorrow was Monday, and now they were changing the story.
When I was about 5 or 6 I went with my Dad to by new tennis shoes. The sales guy brought out a shoe for my Dad to try on that had the little air chambers at the bottom heel, and they almost looked like a neon orange cave. the sales guy told me that little men lived in the bottom of the shoe and when you ran, they stuck their feet through the bottom sole and made you go faster. I totally believed him.
Last year after watching Fried Green Tomatoes my sisters and I told our little brother the same story the girl tells in the movie. We told him that a bunch of ducks came and landed in the lake where we went for vacation, and that it froze in a few seconds. When all the ducks tried to fly away, they took the frozen lake with them! We thought he would call our bluff when we got to the lake and he saw it was still there, but he just got really excited and started yelling that it must have rained enough to fill it back up!!!
When my little brother was younger my two sisters and I told him that he was going to turn into a girl when he grew up. We told him that we used to be boys and we just turned into girls one day. He believed us for the longest time! One day he was talking to our dad and he said "When I'm a girl..." and my dad was like "WHAT" We were in big trouble after that haha.
When my brother and I were about six years old a friend of my fathers told us the if we threw a spark plug into a sand pit it would explode.
It took us 2 days to find a spark plug and another day to pluck up the courage to try it.
When I was younger my mom bought my dad a very life-like Yoda. The box it came in had holes and my brother and I thought whatever was in it was alive. After he opened the box, my dad proceeded to tell us that he saw it blink and that Yoda was alive. He then told us that his Yoda would walk around the house at night. To this day I still can't look the thing straight in the eye
When I was a little kid I saw a billboard for hooters. Curiously, I asked my dad what "hooters" are. For years I've believed that they are fluffy pillows. The next day I told my mom if we could go to the store to buy new hooters because mine are too flat.
In 2nd grade my dad told me he skipped a rock across Lake Michigan, and I believed him and defended him when I told my class. It was a few years later that I found out how big Lake Michigan actually was.
When I was little my mom told me that when I lied a blue dot only mommies could see appeared on my forehead so every time I lied I put my hand over my forehead...
When I was 4, my dad told my brother and I that Bill Clinton lived in the neighborhood, because a guy who lived really near us looked a lot like him. We didn't figure out that they weren't the Clintons until Hillary was running for the Democratic nomination, and my brother said, "Wait a second! That's not Hillary Clinton! She doesn't look like that and she's in some other state right now!" We figured it out when I was 11. At first, my dad told us this as a joke, but we believed him to the point where once I went up to the neighbor and said, "Hello ex-president!" he gave me a really weird look. How incredibly sad...
When I was younger my brother told me he had to tell me a very sad secret. The secret was that when I was thirteen, my head was going to explode. There was no way I could tell my parents, because it was too sad of a subject for them and would really upset them.
I eventually forgot, until couple years later, a kid in class told us that he had a friend whose head blew up...
Turns out they were both lying! Luckily for me, I still have my head.
When I was little my mom told me I was allergic to chocolate, potatoes, and peanuts. I recently found out I'm not allergic to any of these things and my mom told me I was to prevent me from being overweight. I'm 22 years old.
