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.
I used to believe that you should never ever turn on the faucet in the bathroom sink right after flushing the toilet -- because the water going down the toilet would come out of the faucet! A similar belief held for drinking fountains located right outside of public restrooms.
I used to think that every time someone whent #2, it would go to a giant underground lad, where a bunch of sciantists would sit around analysing the poo. They analized it to find out what the person was thinking while they were on the toilet. I would always try to think clean, pure thoughts while I was going to the bathroom, so that I wouldn't be arrested.
When I was a kid, my older brother told me that in Japan, they don't have toilet paper. Instead, they have a whole in the wall. You would wipe with your hand, and then stick your hand in the wall only for someone employed on the other side to hit your hand with a brick. This would make you stick the hamd in your mouth - all clean!
I believed this until I was about 12 when I was watching a travel show, showing a motel in Japan - with NORMAL toilets!! haha
