A lot of us used to have some ridiculous, questionable or funny beliefs as a child :lol: Perhaps you thought the moon as made out of cheese or that cartoons were real? What things did you believe as a child?

I used to think if I couldn't see someone they couldn't see me either. Like I would just put my hands on my eyes, and thought that's how you hid? Obviously found out pretty quickly that's not how it works, lol.

I believed that if you didn’t brush your teeth three times a day they would turn all rotten and fall out of your mouth in your sleep and swallow them and be poisoned - thanks Mum (!)

i didn't realise animals were indigenous to certain countries, so i was terrified of alligators, crocodiles, rattle snakes, tarantulas (i lived in the middle of Canada. this would never happen). i was also afraid of quicksand and bottomless pits.

I thought black and white films were made when there was no colour. i literally thought that when movies were released in colour that's when colour appeared until then the world was in black and white. It took me a long time to realise that this was not the case when my sister confronted me about it lol.

That if I mistakenly ate an apple seed, an apple tree would grow in my stomach and I'd die.

One of the granddaughters stood up in the middle of her class and told them that Santa wasn’t real when she was six. There was howling and crying from her classmates and dirty looks from the parents at the school gate for weeks afterwards.

I thought the drain in the bath was going to take me away with the water if I sat in the bath while the water was draining.

Still a regular occurrence today... 😂😂

I thought sex was a myth. How could someone really let you stick that P into their sand box.

I don't think I really understood the concept of actors at a young age. Also, for some reason I thought that all bands had multiple singers like boy/girl bands. I think the latter lasted longer than any belief in God...

Oh boy

- seeds grow inside you and make trees. Fact.
- couples kiss and the woman poops out a baby every now and then
- the mannequins from the 2005 doctor who episode are real
- periods are brown (k so I know they can be but my mum literally said it wouldn't be red and um)
- I thought TV remotes were called 'glibs' because my dad made up silly names for everything. I was 10 when I realised the truth after my English teacher was like wtf
- the woman on the answer phone lives in the phone

Ok and the grand finale

- Jesus floats around in a giant bubble granting your prayers

Have no explanation for that one but thank you Jesus
