When i was a kid i used to believe that my dad was He-Man. I thought this because he would tell me so, and hide behind the door and scream "By the power of Greyskull!". When i would run to open the door it was just my dad, but he said "oh, you came too late. I've already transformed back into me"

I never believed it completely, but the was always some doubt left lingering.

I was a weird kid...when I was 8 I thought that if I said something it would come true. And I figured that the only way that could happen was if I was transported to an alternate universe where the thing was true. Except then I would have alternate parents and everything, and it wouldn't be my real origonal life. Also, I thought that I would forget that it was ever different than it was, because my brain was also modified (so conveniently there is no way to prove myself wrong.) So I was afraid of saying any untrue statement and NEVER lied .... :P

When I was younger my Mom told me and my older sister that if we lied she could see the devil in our eyes. Whenever we'd lie we would check each others eyes to make sure he wasn't in there.

When I was little my dad had this bag and it had needles and other assorted sharp objects in it so to keep me from sticking my little three year old hand in it he told me that it was filled with baby alligators. It took my mom nearly an hour to calm me down. I still can't go anywhere near a bag that has Taz on it without wanting to cry. It's sad, actually...

When I was younger and my father used to cook eggs on the frying pan, he would press down on them with the spatula while cooking and they would make that squealing sound when air is let out. I asked my dad "why do the eggs squeal when you press down on them?"
He told me that it was the chicken babies screaming because they were burning to death.

When I was small my cousin covinsed me about that Nokken existed, and that he would eat me if I was not sitting still when he was rowing me around in his rubber boat. Nokken had an owen at the bottom of the lake, that was special designed for small children, adults was to big for the owen,thats why he was not intrested in them.
When I asked my grandparents and parents about if Nokken was real, they said he was, cause they did not wqant me to fall out of the boat since I could not swim.
Needles to say, I learned to swim very late, cause I paniced in water.

When I was a child, I hated to complete my homework. So, my mother used to tell me that my teacher is watching me with a binocular and I used to believe it and do my homeworks. This happened even when we were out of town, she used the same belief of mine to force me to study.

When I was little and I did anything bad, my mom or dad would tell me that I better not do it again or "the man" would get me. I was terrified of "the man" even though I had never seen him or knew what he looked like!

But one day I was in the video store with my mom and I was complaining about something or other so she said "You better stop or the man's going to come and take you away!" And at the exact moment she said that, a really tall man in a black coat and hat looked right at me. Holy crap, was I scared! I stopped complaining, but afterwards I refused to go in that video store for years!

When i was little, me and my sister were riding in the car with our mom. From the highway, we could see all the tall buildings of Baltimore. Our mom pointed to one of them and told us it was the Masonic Temple. She said the Masons were a religeous cult, and every year they threw a live sheep off the top of the building as initiation for the new members. We both believed it for years after that.

It wasn't until i was 15 and i asked her if they had to close the street when they threw the sheep off, that i found out it isn't true. She laughed so hard at me, before telling me it was just made up.

save the sheep!!

This isn't me Its my friend. I was outside with him ( he was 8
I was 11) And as a joke since I'm a girl, i told him that when boys get 4 their brains start to dissolve. A couple days later I saw him running through the house saying "Its true! Its true!" Once i figured out what he was talking about, I almost died laughing.

My Grandma used to tell me and my male cousin when we about three or four that the creeping plant she kept on the veranda ate little boys on Tuesdays and little girls on Thursdays. She thought it was a cute little joke but we were terrified and would refuse to visit her on those days!

My grandmother used to tell my brother and I that if we were bad that the moon would come down to earth and take us back "up there" with it or that the "Ogre" would take us away forever.

When I was little my grandfather was telling me one of those naughty nursery rhymes. "Mary had a little lamb...she tied him to the heater..and every time he turned around he burned his little..." Then my grandmother said, "Kenny, you can't tell that child that." So my grandfather said "eyeball". They all laughed. I laughed too. I actually told this joke to people all the way past highschool until one day it just dawned on me that it wasn't "eyeball" it was "peter". I remember a feeling eureka when I realized why people never laughed like my family did when they heard the rhyme.

when i was a little girl, i noticed that my mother had a tattoo. when i asked her how she got it, she told me that it appeared on her ankle (thats where the tattoo is) after she had eaten several breath mints. (you know the ones with the little red and white swirls) so obviously, i thought that this was true so i persuaded her to buy me an entire bag of them. i finished that bag 45 minutes later. imagine my disappointment when my tattoo didn't appear! i cried for about 3 days. ;) but lucky me, i got the press on tattoos. (the ones that rub off with soap and water) hehehehehe ^_^

I believed my Daddy when he told me if I sat on a coconut long enough, it would hatch a baby monkey! I tried for months but obviously no success...lol. Almost forty years later and I still think of baby monkeys whenever I see a coconut. :)
