From age 5 to about 10, I thought that the tank on the back of the toilet collected the water that went down the sink or bath tub drains. And that that water was used to flush waste away. Oddly I recently found out that this eco friendly idea has been used...I should have spoken up as a child I could have become a very wealthy individual.
When I was a kid they started putting the automatic toilets in public stores and restaurants, and when I would go to use them I would finish, pull up my pants, and try and get out the stall before it flushed, because I was afraid it would suck me down in it or a monster would grab me... The first few times I would scream, one of those times my mom was in the next stall and got freaked out. She still thinks it was a huge spider. Sometimes I still catch myself tryin to get outta the stall as fast as I can... lol
I used to believe that if you sit on the toilet too long your legs will fall off. My dad told me this so i wouldn't spend too much time in the bathroom taking a poop, One time, I got off the toilet and looked at the back of my legs and saw the red marks from sitting down and I thought to myself, "Whew, that was as close one."
I used to believe in that there was a monster that lived under the toilet that my poop and if I didn't feed it regularly, it would eat me.
I used to think that the toilets went directly to the lakes and streams. I also loved to fish, so one day when my mom would not take me I decided that I would just use the toilet. An hour latter and a full reel of line later my mom heard the contant flushing and found me "Toilet fishing"
I went into the boy's bathroom one day in first grade (I'm a girl), and when I came out, a little boy told me, "This is the boy's room. You can't come in here."
So I told him, "You need to learn to share."
I used to believe that when you flushed the toilet and the had the shower on at the same time, the toilet water and remnants would come out of the shower.
When I was a kid I thought the toilet took a picture of you every time you flushed, so I would often look into the toilet bowl and smile when I flushed. I wasn't sure why, or where the pictures went, though.
I used to believe that if I farted in the toilet the water would collect the scent. I frequently visited the washroom simply to flush my farts away.
I used to think that when someone used the toilet in an airplane, the piss/poop went into the air. I was so embarrased to use the toilet and avoided it.
Any properties with a sign outside proclaiming "To-Let" where available to the passing public who needed to use the toilet.
I used to believe that whatever you flushed down the toilet would go to see Jesus and it would be transformed into light. I even had a recurring dream about telling kids in my class how to get in the toilet THEN flush to go see Jesus...you were then flushed into a tunnel that had several doorways, but you had to stay going straight down the tunnel in order to get to Jesus. The other doorways took you other places that were hard to get out of. It was my job to tell the kids how to do it so they wouldn't get lost.
i used to believe that people who lived on bridges had toilits flush out under the bidge and people who sailed under the bridge carried umbrellas
When I was little I thought that when you flushed the toilet, everything that got flushed went to Brooklyn. Once there, there was a factory that sorted everything that came in into different bins.
When I was in Kindergarten, I would only use cold water to wash my hands at school because, for whatever reason, I thought using warm water would cause a fire drill.
I used to be believe that the Tidy Bowl man (from the commercials) really lived in the toilet, and I would look for him all the time.

I also thought you had to sing twinkle twinkle little star, down the toilet so that the monsterous elfs will not eat you when your in bed the nest night.
I used to think that the pictures in the handicapped stalls meant that there was a bathroom inside the store. If I needed to use the bathroom when we pulled up to the store I'd think good they have a toilet in there.
At school I always wondered what the boy's toilets looked like I used to believe they had dragons guarding theirs, I used to believe that unicorns guarded the girl's toilets, I did go in to have a look, I was surprised to find it was blue. I was never caught or in trouble.
