I used to believe that if you were vaccuuming a patterend carpet, you couldn't leave the end of the hose in one place, otherwise it would suck the pattern off! I believed this up until I was about 21...

You know how on your standard loaf you have the flat bottom with the sharp corners and the rounded top with no corners? Well, I used to think that I was more likely to choke eating the sharp corner of the crust, so I always made sure (especially when having toast) that I ate the rounded corner first so that I would live longer.

I used to believe my dad would plant light bulbs every year to make the plants grow. I didn't understand it was just bulbs.

I used to believe that a cow produced different kinds of liquids from every teat. There was light milk, whole milk, cream, and whiskey. Because that's what my dad told me.

When I was a kid, I believed that a little troll lived under our house and he was angry because we lived there. Since he was too small to make us move, he charged us taxes by taking one sock out of the dryer. I held this belief through college and have yet to hear a logical explanation for the disappearing sock

When I was young, I squeezed my own orange juice sometimes and my parents informed me that orange pulp was good for you. I confused this with orange seeds and one day put an orange seed in my dad's coffee when he wasn't looking saying "it's good for you!" He subsequently almost choked.

Seeds (from body functions : eating)

when i was a kid, i believed the news far too literally. when the news reporter said "a man is helping police with their enquiries" i thought a nice bloke had gone to the police station on his day off, with notepad and pen, and said offered to carryout interviews.

I used to believe in 'SPAM' animals until I was 13 years old and read the back of a can. Thanks to my father's wild imagination and description of a beast that had parts from all types of animals, I never ate any SPAM!!

Although I never believed that there were actually people inside your tv, I thought that you could see the other channels by looking up the side of the tv screen, as if they were all in a big line, and when you changed channels they simply moved across.
