A cousin, who was a few years older than me, once informed me that anything flushed down a toilet was stored in the tank on the back, then removed at night by a man who went around to each house and emptied the tanks with a vacuum cleaner. It was important, she warned me, that I should never go to the bathroom at night, lest I be caught there when the toilet man came and have my butt sucked off by the vacuum.
I was not convinced, but I knew that telling her she was wrong wouldn't go over well, so I don't know how long she went on believing that one.
ahhh.. when I was young(probably 3-6), I believed there was a family that lived underground and the sewage lines all went to them or similar families, and that they ate my poop and that's where the poop went. I had long discussions with the son of that family. I also believed they would become enraged if I didn't supply them with fresh poop.
I used to think that in the bathroom at school if you found a special button in the last stall then you would get to enter this magic place full of candy with a castle and go there every day insted of school.
i used to think when you go to the toilet and your still sat on the toilet if you flush the chain when you are still sat down you would get flushed away
dont ask me why !
I used to belive that if you sat on the toilet to long, and then flushed it,right after you flushed a mermaid would flip ot of your toilet and flip back in.
I used to believe that if I flushed the toilet before I showered, I would take a shower in dirty toilet water.
I used to believe that whenever I flushed a poo, it would go down this series of pipes till most of the water ran off, at which point it would plop onto the round table of a little meeting room of ''poo'' monsters - little guys made of poo, who ate our poo to survive. :) I wasn't afraid of them, I thought they were doing us an (albeit disgusting) service, kinda like the garbage men.
i used to belive that when i flushed a bug (dead or alive) down the toilet, the next time i went to the bathroom it would be there waiting for me to sit down and then it would crawl up and bite my butt.
so now everytime i kill a bug i stomp on it really hard and trow it out. but now im scared that if it doesn't die when i stomp on it it will crawl out of the garbage and come up to my room.
So, i just make my little sister kill the bugs now. She either throws it outside or she puts it in the next door neighbors garbage = )
When I was little the hissing noise the toilet made when you flush it scared me. In all the movies I watched the ghosts made hissing noises when they came up behind you, so me, being so little, thought that a ghost came out of the toilet when you flushed and ran as fast as I could from the bathroom after I flushed, turning off the light so the ghost couldn't see.
There was a rumor that a girl was killed in the bathroom near the gym in our elemantary school. so if you went in there, you would be haunted and had a chance of being killed by her...i dont know why i believed it, but i always held it until after school.
When I was little I had heard about people having worms in their intestinal tracts, and I would get scared when I pooped that one would come out and bite me on the butt. Or that it would come out and try to go back in.
I used to think there was a law that you couldn't go into public bathroom by yourself if you were younger than a certain age. I don't know what age I thought was the "legal bathroom age", but when I was about 8 or 9 I was in the grocery store with my mom and had to go to the bathroom. She let me go by myself, but as i was about to go into the men's room, a guy who worked at the store stopped me and said "You can't go in there!" ..I got confused and thought it was because I wasn't old enough... Turns out he just thought i was a girl.
I don't know if it is a belief but I remember when I first learned to use the "potty" that I imagined that the waste would be cartoon characters. Like a pooh in a top hat type of thing, and that these cartoon droppings were all collected in some place where they could go have a party.
when I was little I used to believe the toilet was my dad's pet and if you didn't feed him, he would die.
my mom told me my grandma had a pot belly. I thought it was from her laying on the toilet and flushing it, and the suction pulled her stomach out and it got stuck that way.
I had two bathrooms upstairs and one downstairs. One of the bathroom upstairs is directly above the one downstairs. Than I had the most brilliant idea ever!!! I ran upstairs into the bathroom and flushed the toilet. In, let's say, "mid-flush", I screamed nonsense words into the toilet. Than I sprinted down stairs and down the hall into the downstairs bathroom. I sat there, leaning over the toilet with the lid wide open, staring into the water. Waiting. For my voice.
not my belief, but my little cousins. he's about 4 years old and the other day he asked his father if motorcycles were hatched. so apparently, he thinks that motorcycles are born in some way. haha
I used to believe that aeroplanes had an entire toilet block on them (with normal toilets, not vacuum toilets)!
I used to believe that when you flushed an aeroplane toilet the waste would just drop out of the plane.
I used to wait until the toilet tank was done filling entirely before I washed my hands because for some reason I thought that if I didn't, the contents of the toilet would come through the sink faucet and get my hands dirty.
