    That I was a "complete genius" by multiple professionals.

    Now I'm lucky to get 135 in an IQ test.

    "Neil will be the next Shakespeare". Aye right. Now it's "Neil is going to have to get his act together if he's to achieve what he's capable of." on my report cards.

    "You have a pilot's eyes, 20/20 vision, and you will never need glasses." - Optician 3 years ago. "You are short sighted and I'm afraid that you will need glasses of 1.50x magnification." - Optician 2 years ago.

    "You'll only have to wear your brace for around half a year" - the orthodontist. Nope, I had to wear it for two years.

    "A kilometre is longer than a mile" - some ****** who thought he was intelligent.

    Oh, and lastly, whilst I'm whining, I recently found my mother suspected I was autistic for a little while when I was a child. I had strange obsessions, refused to eat foods of certain colour, said really weird stuff. Just brilliant. :mad:

    No luck Neil.

    Yeh all of the avbove mentioned, I had always a sceptical mind on Santa Claus and Tooth Fairy. Never believed in Bogeyman and was never even told anything about a friggn Easter Bunny.

    I don't think it's a bad thing that kids believe in Santa and Tooth Fairy, it does not adversely affect.

    Also told 'you'll understand when you are older', which is true, and still is undoubetdly. As you get older you see things clearer and for what they really are.

    Me: Where do babies come from?
    My Gran: When mum and dad really love each other, daddy gives mummy a speacial present and after a couple of months a pelican delivers a baby sent by God.
    Me: Oh Ok.

    The following week i'm present when my mum gives birth to my sister on our kitchen floor...traumatised for life.

    For as long as I can remember I didn't believe in Santa Claus. My little sister was scared of Santa Claus so we had to give up on that one.

    I don't think there was anything I believed in that was stupid.

    Funnily enough I was never told ANY of the above - I knew about Father Christmas, obviously, but was never told whether it was true or false - parents have always asked us what we wanted for Christmas and we chose our own pressies

    And tooth fairy I think that's an English thing cus I'd never heard of it til I came over to England. I think boogie man probably is an English thing too. I've never believed in monsters under my bed or in my wardrobe either.

    I WAS told, however, that if I sat too close to the TV then the TV will come out and suck me into it... not by my parents but by my friend's mum :confused: and also told by my dad's collegues that if I was naughty then these thunder things will chase me and spack me and I won't be able to sit for weeks :confused: However my parents themselves have NEVER scared me like that, nor do I remember any lies like that.

    Hmmmmm yeh well - sometimes I wish I didn't know some things. Think that's what I've grown to love about kids - just so innocent and carefree and sometimes tbh I reckon I got some things to learn from kids.
