i used to think scary men could be hiding in the rooms upstairs at night and would jump out at me if i walked by an open doorway, but only if the light inside the room was off and i was alone. for a while i used to make someone come with me to go to the bathroom and wait outside the door and go back downstairs with me. if nobody would go with me i'd run like hell past the dark bedrooms or turn on every light and look into each room on the way to the bathroom

To this day, when I am home all by myself and my family is not expected to return that day, I turn on all the lights when it gets dark. I begrudgingly turn them off when I go to bed, but nothing creeps me out like a 130-year-old house when it's dark, empty, and creaky.

Of course! Doesn't everyone shrink-wrap their heads to ward off ticks? Maybe we should have that as a cure for lice.<br><br><br><br>
(I'm not mocking you, Funk, I just find your childhood solutions so similar to my childhood solutions.)

LF- your evil men think sounds like mine. But mine lurked outside peeking in ready to shoot.<br><br><br><br>
Off topic: (In response to Soilman) My BF can control his penis thoroughly. He can make it move in the usual ways, (flex flex, bounce bounce) but also mentally control any and all erectile functions.<br><br><br><br>
He can 'talk it up', or 'talk it down' at will, as it were. And it'll shrink or grow magically right before your eyes! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Yeah. TOo much information. I know.

This looks like a fun thread to resurrect.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>

lol. i read through the site and its pretty funny. Some crazy things I used to believe when I was little was that if I accidently swallowed one of those big black watermelon seeds and then drank water a watermelon would grow in my stomache. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"></div>
</div>
<br><br><br>
With me it was apple seeds. My mother told me not to swallow apple seeds b/c if I did an apple tree would grow in my stomach. She also told me not to swallow chewing gum b/c it would "stick in my stomach". I believed her both times. I once told her I dreamed I was falling and she told me I was growing in my sleep. I believed that for the longest time.<br><br>
Also, and obviously I wasn't paying attention in Health class, I thought that once I got my period, I would have it every single day for the rest of my life. Really stupid, right? Which explains why, the day it finally arrived, I was practically ready to kill myself. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dunce.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dunce:">

When I was little my mom once told me that the emergency brake in her car was an ejection button for my seat. I was terrified she'd pull it up one day and I'd fly out of the car.

Oh yeah...I also used to have to sleep facing away from the door because I thought that if somebody broke in and I opened my eyes, it would be easier for them to see me. Yikes.

Heheh, this *is* a cute thread!<br><br><br><br>
Let's see...when I was a kid I asked my mom what coupons were for. She said that they "make shopping worthwhile". So after that I was obsessed with making sure we had our coupon book with us, so the shopping trip wouldn't be pointless. LOL<br><br><br><br>
I was always afraid of windows when it was dark outside and light inside so you only saw reflections. I was always utterly convinced that someone was outside looking at me, just waiting for me to be alone in the room so they could kidnap me.<br><br><br><br>
My mom "threw away" a bunch of my toys when I wouldn't clean my room once. Later they magically reappeared in my bedroom. I was convinced that the trash man had noticed my toys and felt sorry for me, and snuck them back into my room. I kept those particular toys hidden for basically forever after that, in case my mom would see them and know the trash man had given them back, and throw them away again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"><br><br><br><br>
My friend when we were five, told me that if you stick you finger too far into your ear you'll pop your eyeball out on that side and go blind.<br><br><br><br>
I was playing doctor with a stuffed mickey mouse and put a smartie (little chalky candies that look somewhat like pills) on his mouth for him to "eat". I turned around to do something, and when I turned back the "pill" was gone! From then on I was convinced that my stuffed Mickey Mouse was alive, but only when I wasn't looking. (I assume now that it just fell off somwhere)<br><br><br><br>
And for several weeks when I was about 8 or 9 I had a series of very vivid dreams about my big brother Ben. Only I don't have a big brother! So I hatched a story for myself where I DID have a big brother named Ben that lived with another family, but there was a reason (which changed depending on the latest movie I'd seen, hehe) why he was kept a big secret from me and my little sister. For years I would look really closely at boys who were about 3-4 years older than me to see if they looked like Ben from my dreams. (never found him, but now I have an older brother(in-law) that is named Ben, so that's kinda funny)

I believed God was peeing on us whenever it rained.<br><br><br><br>
I believed that if I didn't have all of my limbs tucked into the blankets at night, a green witch would come from under my bed and eat them right off.<br><br><br><br>
I believed that if I ate a watermelon or apple seed, a tree would grow in my stomach.<br><br><br><br>
I believed that the People Mover at Disneyland really shrunk me down to a little speck only the "people" looking throught the microscope could see...I also believed that the abominable snowman on the Matterhorn was real. I also believed that all the ghosts in the Haunted Mansion were real.

my dad convinced me that there were fairies in our backyard and that the flowers we had, they were something like foxgloves i think, the fairies wore as hats.<br><br><br><br>
also, this is really gross and i dont know WHY i was thinking about it when i was younger, but when I learned that semen was a bunch of little swimming sperm i couldnt comprehend that the sperm were SO little so i thought they were a bunch of very small creatures and if you were to feel semen, like rub it between your fingers, it would be grainy because you could feel all the little swimmy guys. gross. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

i'm not good at remembering my childhood. but my mom told me a story once where her older sister convinced her that if you touched the radio buttons in a car when the car wasn't running, the car would explode. so of course, being an older sister, my aunt reached for the radio, and my mom freaked out and was in such a hurry to get out of the car she ended up slamming her thumb in the door <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("> my aunt got a real kick out of it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

what a cute thread! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
I used to think that when you got your period, you instantly became pregnant. And that it happened when you were 13. I was so afraid of 13 as a kid <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/tongue3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":p"><br><br><br><br>
I also thought that you got pregnant if boys peed on you. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:"><br><br><br><br>
And that the stinky green stuff in the box on the top shelf in the garage was some weird mold growing in a fancy box that only dad liked <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> (yeah I liked to get into stuff)

I remember a lot of traveling beliefs:<br><br><br><br>
... that you had to hold your breath the entire time passing a cemetary, or an evil spirit would possess you.<br><br><br><br>
...that you had to pick your feet up crossing a train track, or at the next train track you'd get hit by a train.<br><br><br><br>
... that you had to "hold up" a bridge driving under it, or the next bridge would collapse on you.<br><br><br><br>
...That you had to cover one eye if you saw a "perdiddle" ( a car with only one headlight on), or else you'd go blind before you saw the next one.

Hehe, lets see here...<br><br><br><br>
I used to think that you could open an airplane window and stuff a cloud into your shirt and fly away.<br><br><br><br>
That if you swallow a big rock it goes right to your biceps<br><br><br><br>
That there were little men inside traffic lights, and I have to wink at it for it to turn green.

<span>When I was younger my older cousin, who I completely idolized, had me convinced that if you ate your boogars you would turn green.<br><br><br><br>
I also thought there was an old man living in my closet and refused to go near it.<br><br><br><br>
My mom had pictures on the wall of my room of Minnie and Mickey and I believed that they were watching me and could hear everything I said.<br><br><br><br>
My mom always told me not to lie because God was listening to everything I said, and was constantly watching me. That really scared me. I don't believe it so much anymore, but I kinda do.<br><br><br><br>
I also believed the whole watermelon seed thing in your stomach. And if you watered it, it would grow.<br><br><br><br>
