My mother tells me that when I was about 2 or 3, I came running into the house crying desperately saying "I am NOT a lion! I am NOT a lion!" and I would NOT be calmed down.

She took me outside to where the neighbor kids, all older, were playing in the sandbox.

I had apparently told them it was MY sandbox and they had to leave, to which Edward replied:

"You're lyin'!"

My older sister told me that eating potato chips would make me pregnant.......and I was afraid to eat them. I actually believed her until I was 10yrs old and realized she didn't know everything.

when i went through my 'lying stage' at about 3 years old, my mom figured out a way to stop me of it. She would say that if she knew I was lying that my tongue would turn blue. So, when I would lie (which is obvious at 3), my mom would say, 'Let me see your tongue'. She would say, 'Yep, just as I thought, you were lying'. Then, I would look in the mirror and there it was - a big blue tongue.
Everytime she would say let me see your tongue, she would touch it with her finger which had blue food coloring on it. After a couple of times, she would not have to catch me in a lie bc I would give myself away by looking in the mirror before I did lie.
I stopped the incesant lying.

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!!

When I was younger, my dad told me that if I whistled, I would attract snakes. After that I stopped whisteling until I found out it wasn't true.

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 I was little, my mom told me that those tiny bumps you get on your cheek, inside your lip or on your tongue were "lie bumps" and if you lied you would get them and everyone would know. I thought that was true till I was like 10 and even when I caught on, I still thought that it was just a slang term everyone used for it. I thought that until a little over a year ago. ...I'm 22 lol. I have been calling it that to other people for my entire life and no one has ever said anything. The only reason I found out was because I called it that infront of my boyfriend (who looked at me with an extremely confused expression) and my mom, she then laughed for a good 10 minutes.

My father used to make be believe that when there was thunder and lightning, the sound of thunder came from two clouds bumping into each other, and that the lightning came from the friction of the clouds. I believed this until i went to high school...

When i was in kindergarden, a friend of mine told me multiple lies. One that stood out was that a robber came and tried to rob his house. however he stopped the burgler by beating him up...he told me that he made pee come out of a different hole. When i told my parents this at dinner, they yelled at me.

my little sister used to chatter non-stop at night when we went to bed. To get her to be quiet, i would tell her every night "be quiet, or else the (random name of animal or made up creature) will come to get you!"

so one night, she is starting to chatter before the lights are even out, so i tell her "be quiet! or the wild wild wombats will come to eat you up!"

by now she had been catching on to my plot, so when my mom came in to tuck us in, she asked "mom, is there such a thing as a wild wild wombat?" to which my mother replied "yes, of course."

my sister broke out into hysterical tears, and i broke into hysterical laughter. it took my mom a good twenty minutes to calm either of us down enough to tell her what had happened.

When I was little my sister would tell me that if i was lying she would pull out what really was: a little Barbie sewing machine and give it a map that showed where I was and shoot out a huge boxing glove and punchmy teeth out one by one. She called it "the Truth Machine" I believed it for years!!

When my sister and I were around 6 or 7 , I told my sister that the sun bleached dog crap on the front lawn were fossils from dinosaurs and very rare, so she would always go fossil hunting loading up her pockets with dog crap. She did that for a couple years until our mom told her that she was tired of emptying her pockets prior to doing the wash. Fifty years have passed and she still doesn't trust me very much.

when I was a kid my brother used to tell me that a priest will come out of my wound. The larger the wound is, the larger the stuff that will come out, for ex: a bus or an airplane for bigger wounds. So when I get a wound, I don't really cry because it hurts; I was afraid of the things that will come out of it.

When I was about 9 my friend told me that she used to have a twin sister called Abby who dies when she was little, but I couldn't say anything to her mum about it because she would get really sad and start crying. So for many years I believed her and gave her mum a sad sympathetic look whenever I saw her!

This happened when i was seven. My EVIL ten-years-older-than-me brother told me that he was actually a really big three year old. His other seventeen year old friends agreed with him, so i believed him.

I suddenly got the idea that i was negative-seven years old because my parents said he was ten years older than me.

Yes, i did the math all wrong. I was only seven!

Anyway, i started freaking out because i thought that i was'nt even born yet... maybe i was a freak of nature? That made me belive a whole lot of other things that made absolutley no sense.

All because of my brother. -.-;

My friends little sister once asked us if we could tell her what it is we do to attract boys. We told her that there's a ritual that she had to do called "The Mating Call".
"You have to put your hands under your arms and flap them while standing on one foot. Then say " CooCoo Ca Chu" as loud as you can," we told her.
She did it every time she saw a boy she liked. It was hella funny.
