when my cousin was little we used to tell her she had a blue dot on her forhead when she lied so when she wanted to lie about something she would actually cover up her forehead with her hands!

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.

I was a very big "story teller" when I was about 4 or 5, so my mother told me that green smoke came out of my ears everytime I lied. Soon I started telling stories while covering my ears with my hands.

I used to believe that Belinda Carlisle was a complete fake and liar because I saw her on Top of the Pops singing 'Heaven is a Place on Earth' and I already knew that heaven was in the sky!

I managed to convince my brother when he was young and annoying that if he sang a certain song a dragon would come and eat him. He believed me for months until our mother was singing the song one day and he got worried.

A friend once told me about a boy who had left his backpack unzipped once while it was on his back. Apparently, someone put a bomb in the backpack and the kid exploded. I was 65% sure this was not true, but I still to this day make sure my backpack is completely zipped up whenever I go anywhere.

My older sister once told me that the bath-bomb she had in her room was a real bomb. I became convinced she was secretly from the army.

When I was a kid, I made my friend believe that if he ate mud, he'd turn into the Incredible Hulk, like I did, and would become as strong as me...and he ate all the mud he could come across...

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!

i used to believe that when my parents played the nose game in the car, they would actually take my nose. so one time my daddy took my nose and pretended to throw it out the window. i cried and cried and cried so much that we had to turn around and go "get" my nose.

When I was young my mom told me that if I lied hundred times I would see a scorpion. Everytime I saw a scorpion I told myself that I would never tell a lie.

When I was little, one of my favorite movies was the Disney version of Pinnochio...so I grew up believing that if I told lies, my nose would grow. My mom was always able to tell when I was lying because whenever I'd lie to her, I'd touch my nose to try & see whether or not it was growing!

I was told when I was very young that every time you lied a bump would grow on the back of your tongue and if too many lies were said the bumps would grow very big and you wouldn't be able to talk anymore.

When i was young, my parents told me that if i did something wrong they would know, because God wrote it on my forehead in invisible ink, that only parents could read...so whenever they saw me rubbing my forehead raw, they would look around to see what i had done.

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

My dad used to tell me that I had to put his dirty socks under my pillow before I went to bed at night - otherwise the hippopotamus man would come and get me. After sleeping with dirty socks under my pillow for awhile he tried to get me to put his toe nail clippings under my pillow (unless the some other type of animal-man would come and get me) - thats when my mom put an end to that (thank god!)
