When i was little, i always thought that we never died! i would think that people would reach the tallest point in their life when you were in adult hood and when they grew out of adulthood i thought that we would slowly shrink till the size of an ant and disappear, i dont know why, maybe because all the old people i saw were really short,

also i use to think if you would chop cauliflower and cook it on a pan it would turn to chicken bits :D

so what did you guys use to believe in when you were little?

- When you grow up, you get married to your brother/sister
- Couples make child by kissing
- World shrinks so much that eventually the world's popularity won't have enough place to move or do anything XD

And the stupidest thing I believed:
- Being a 'big girl' is a fun thing... >.<

I was very naive XD

I believed the world was a big, safe happy place and when I grow up I would have a big mansion like Lara to play in.

Now I'm just a nervous wreck :p

I used to think that the normal facial expression was smiling, and that everyone I saw in public was sad. :D Then again, where I live they are a miserable bunch.

My cousin used to think that, back in the days of black and white photography, everything was black and white in real life, and that one day everyone woke up and there was colour. :D

- Couples make child by kissing

I was told that they have a 'special cuddle'. :D

Hehe :D My friend told me that she believed that the stork brings the babies, but on a cold January afternoon, she started wondering that how come there are newborn babies in winter, because the storks fly to a warmer place in winter. XD

I used to believe in Father Christmas. I also thought a B-reg was a make of car, back in the day when I didn't know what registration numbers were.

I also didn't know a thing about how music was recorded, so when my mum told me that Enya 'did all the vocals and played all of the instruments', I was thoroughly amazed that anyone could project so many voices and play so many instruments at the same time. :cln:

- When you grow up, you get married to your brother/sister

Since my parents had similar names, I used to think you can only get married with someone whose name corresponds with yours(smth like Daniel and Danielle, Alexander and Alexandra).Since my name was different, I thought that's why I'll never get married.:D

Oh I have a lot of those...

I used to think that
- when you grow up, you have to rename yourself (because old people have old-peoples-names) and I always wanted to be called Elizabeth once I hit 30 lol
- I go blind when I sleep in a room that is totally dark. So still to this day I can't go to sleep in a room that is completely dark, I always leave blinds half way open.
- I can die suffocating when the windows are shut at night, because I would use up all the air in the room during sleep. I still leave my window cracked every night.. I gotta blame my first grade teacher for that, she was the one who started this.
- When me and my friends hit puberty (around 11, 12) I tried to convince all my friends that my parents never had sex before... :D

I used to think that:

> ladies were fed something special on their wedding day, and the food made them grow a baby. :p
> TVs had tiny little people inside it (when I was a toddler/child)
> people called me pretty only when they needed something from me. :pi:
> trees had ghosts inside it that came alive at night. (AARRGHH my dad used to scare me....I still get scared sometimes..)
> I used to hate women who made themselves look cheap when I was very young. This became a huge precursor to my sorta-feminist personality....and I'm soo glad, because most of my friends are so cheap.

That the numbers don't go higher than 36.

Lara Croft was a real person

Babies were born out of the trash shoot.

Our whole bodies were completely hollow inside so we were only full when we filled the hollow space.:D

Brocolli were baby trees.

26-07-07, 21:54
Hahaha!! :vlol: I thought many things, like...

- The tooth fairy was real.

- Women got pregnant by praying to God...:hea:

- My dad appeared on TV everyday on the news...

- Jesus was born somewhere in the 80's :vlol:

- Chicken didn't come from chicken, it was just food given a random name.

- My computer speakers would magically come to life and call me nasty things.

- Staying on the computer longer than 2 hours will make you blind forever.

- Saying lies will make you wet your pants! xD

lol I remember something like that. I told all my friends that my mom used to be a famous rockstar.. it wasn't really a lie, cuz I was convinced it was true. For some reason, I thought I'd remember a picture of her on stage.. don't know where this imagination came from, cuz a picture like that doesn't exist of course... she did have a guitar as child tho ;)

26-07-07, 23:24
I used to believe that when you flushed the toilet if you didnt run out fast enough a monster would come out and pull you down into the toilet with you. And I thought that God hated cats b/c everytime one of mine died they said that God has a plan. To which I replied, "To what? Kill off all the cats?" I seriously thought that something was living in my closet and if I got out of bed for anything it would jump out and kill me. My fears were not unfounded, we discovered one night that one of our cats was sleeping in there and the strange noises I heard was her hissing at our other cat to stay out.

Everybody always tells me that I was well beyond my age when I was little, so they always told me everything. Aside from Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, I knew everything accurately. ;)

That there were demons out to get me, and I could only defeat them by natural light or by splashing them with ordinary tap water.
Scared me for a good few months that did!

I used to belive in witches ( espeically after that funny childrens book with meg the witch). Anyay when it was dark, and I was little, I used to be scared of running up our house ( we have this long corridor thats overlooked by next doors roof). Anyway...child scared of witches and group of cats on neighbours roof meant for a loud scream and embarrasment

LaraCablara
27-07-07, 00:18
Hmm, Santa Claus, Tooth Fairy,the Rugrats being real, Woman give birth by having a doctor open there stomach, and then close it, Chocolate being poop (no offense to Chocolate :p), there no finger in between my thumb and my index finger because someone ate it, and of course chocolate milk comes from cow poop, oh and witches and goblins and that gummy bears have feelings.

Edit: And being a virgin meant your from Virginia

Edit (again): If your not careful you could poop the baby out when your pregnant.

Well at a very young age i slept with my sister on a room. I lay down, and get scared of the closet, thinking somethings gunna come out. I go into her bed. She goes into the bed I was in. Now im by the door, scared that somethings going to grab me. So i get into her bed. And it repeats itself.

^.^

I also used to think that if your extra good, santa will give you more presents. :/

You know, it wasnt untill recently I found out that babies are born without teeth. :o

I believed that my parents loved each other and were happy, but I was so wrong. Then I grew up and realised so many things wasn't correct. That's the thing I miss with being a kid. You got no worries.

star girl
27-07-07, 01:35
Yeah! And (a cousin tricked me once! :mad:) that this weird sort of night was nearby, when witches would come out and take the shape of your loved one - and the only way to tell them apart was to look at their feet, they'd be put in the wrong direction if they were a witch :yik:

I couldn't go to the bathroom alone for two months after that.. :(

kooky
27-07-07, 06:13
My list is long :eek: :

- Lara croft was a real, & all things in the TR games were real.

- Santa & the tooth fairy, easter bunny

- the Mario characters were also real :vlol:

- I believed a planet was going to collide with us, then realized it won't happen for another few million years. :pi:

- I believed babies were born when a couple get married :vlol:

Once in reception I spontaneously started crying in class and the teacher asked me what was wrong I said that I had won the lottery:D

Oh, and when I was 9/10 I once beleived along with my classmates that oral consumption of semen could make you pregnant.

Also I was once having nightmares about Resident evil(I went through a really bad phase where I couldn't sleep for zombies at about 7) I woke and and went to my mum and kept asking her if I could go to the doctors and have my brain washed.

I thought you could book an appointment then lol

If i ate my crusts my hair would go curly
If i ate carrots i could see in the dark
thunder was god moving the furniture around, rain was his bath overflowing, lighting was him having a "disco"
Broccoli was a baby tree

eople had to sit in the car in height order... tallest person drove (my dad) 2nd tallest had to sit in the passenger seat ( my mum) smallest had to sit in the back ( me) it was the law...

I stopped believing this by the age of about 5-6... but pretended i still thought it was true, as i could see i wasnt going to stay the smallest for much longer turned 8-9 ish, became taller than my mum, and haven't sat in the back since!

I used to believe that all cats were female and all dogs were male.

:vlol: Me too.

Well when I was five I wanted to have a wall behind me when sleeping because I was afraid that there was a monster under my bed and I wanted to have my back covered.

And when I was about two or three my mother had this unbelievably ugly, scarecrow-like doll on the wall of my bedroom and I was positively frightened by it, but I couldn't explain to anyone what I was afraid of.

And I believed that babies where born when the couple was rolling under the bedclothes ( blame the TV).lol

jackali
27-07-07, 13:01

Other than the Santa Clause stuff, I used to think my dolls would come to life so I always had to be extra nice to them because I didn't want them killing me in my sleep. I saw a glimpse of Chuckie when I was really little; it scarred me.

I'm the oldest sibling, though, so I think I was more responsible for making my little brother believe in stupid things. I remember telling him if he collected all the white tags from Hersey's Kisses, they'd send him a huge one. And that he needed to keep dog spit on him if he wanted dogs to really love him. I was terrible. :D

Besides that,
Beleved that the world was black and white before the invention of color (cos of the photographs)
And that My mum was on Noah's ark, and so were all the old (ish) people. She was about early thirty's, didn't go down well. :p

Used to believe: Falling in love is so illogical. The chances of finding the right person are 1 in 6.6 billion and once you find them, most people just focus all their time and energy in keeping a relationship rather then living life itself and enjoying with it has to give.

What Happened: Fell madly in love and got married.

Me too. >.> It's cause the parents don't tell you... And because the sims did. :p

-I beleived that god lived in the clouds
-That you can actually catch a dove on the street...

Oh yeah, I beleived all my toys were people, so I didn't want them to get jealous of each other because I had a favorite. :vlol:
Also I had the theory that when you open the fridge a little man turns on the light. :D And when you close it he turns it off.

Plus I thought if I didn't clean my room a troll would come and eat all my toys: DAD'S FAULT. :vlol:
