the top 200 beliefs
When i was little my sister got a hernia, earlier that day we had been chasing butterflies around the garden so i explained to her that one of the butterflies she caught had ate his way into her stomach and gave her the hernia... shes 19 now and still to this day has the most irrational fear of butterflies
I used to believe that pepper created actual heat.
so one day when I didn't want to go to school, I ate about 2 tablespoons of pure ground black pepper, and told my mom I was sick and to take my temperature.
She told me as red as my face was, my temperature was fine.
I played soccer in grade school and hated it. I asked my mother why I had to play to which she responded "it's the law." When I was about 14, one of my friends told me she had never played soccer when she was a kid. I asked her if her parents had gone to jail or just been given a fine. You can imagine the look of confusion on her face.
When I was 6 I believed that on nice summer days you can see the world spin if you just look hard enough :)
When I was little, my mom told me that if I slept with socks on they would eat me alive.
I used to believe my dad was the best male figure in the world and wondered why he wasn't president already.
When I was in preschool, my teacher read me and my classmates a book that said we could become anything we wanted when we were older. I didnt realize the book was referring to jobs and not literally anything so I wanted to become a whale. I thought we could turn into whatever we wanted till about fourth grade when I asked my mom why she was still human and not something else.
When I was a kid, I thought the speed of light was the time it took from when you flipped the light switch until the light came on.
i used to belief that waves had life and different personalities! The small ones were just wave kids, and the biggest ones were their parents. Every time that I went to the beach I made sand cakes and throw them to the ocean! If I did not make enough cakes, the biggest waves would be mad and would attack the beach. I ran like crazy to make this certain numbers of cakes! But that was ok since they really liked me after all, and the small waves were my friends and would protect me every were I go with an ocean.
when i was little I used to believe that at night the sun flipped around and the moon was on the back of it and they would jsut rotate during day or night
I used to believe that when you blew a bubble and it floated out of sight before popping, it would turn into a planet.
When i was little, my parents had a water bed. Everytime my dad would have to add more water, i would go and hide under my bed because i thought an alligator lived inside my parents waterbed and that it would get out and eat me.
I used to believe that adults (when they just became adults) had a meeting with all the monsters and horror movie characters. They drank coffe, chilling chat so adults would not be afraid of 'em anymore.
And that was my theory of why adults were never (uh-huh) afraid of anything. (: jaja
As a child I used to believe we had to seperate systems for digesting liquids and solids. I mean; they go in that way and they come out that way...only logical there are to stomachs then...
I used to think that animals used to grow meat that could be cut from them without killing them, just like you pick an apple from a tree without seriously harming it.
When I heard on the news that some on was shot at gunpoint, I thought "Gunpoint" was a place; I wondered why people kept going to Gunpoint.
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.
In the old house where I grew up there was pink insulation on the attic floor between the beams. My parents always told me not to step on it or I would fall through the ceiling. I thought it contained some sort of magic power to propel me upwards through the roof. I was disappointed to learn years later that they'd meant the ceiling of the floor beneath me!
When I was about 4 or 5 my mom told me not to break the coffee table because "a lot of money went into that". Of course being a small child I tried to break it open so I could get the money out!
when i was little, i used to believe that whatever food your mom ate the most when she was pregnant would be your favorite food when you were born.
