    Strange things you believed as a child

    I know i had quite a few of them, most were rather idiotic but with a mix of old traditions and ignorance i believed them all LOL

    1. The Cucuy - the boogie man! every dark room holds a Cucuy! *UY CUCUY!*
    2. You can get a cold from walking around on the cold floor barefoot
    3. You get a cold from walking out of the house on a cold day with wet hair
    4. Eating any seed would make a plant come out of your belly button/ass


    Lets hear yours!
    If you can't make it good, at least make it look good.

    Thought the earth was flat. Took a long trip. Found out it wasn't true.

    I learned about reproduction very young since my father and grandfather did artificial insemination of cattle, and I got to watch. Some how I got the idea that if I blew my nose perfectly or pooped perfectly, there would be nothing left to reproduce and I would never again be bothered with the need to blow or defecate.

    I thought you could get room-atism of your ankles by wearing your galoshes indoors.

    @alisondaewon: Actually color was invented in late 1938 during the filming of The Wizard of Oz (after the first Kansas scenes, before the scenes in Munchkinland). Hollywood continued to make B&W movies and TV for nostalgic oldsters who missed the old B&W world.

    Yeah, look at Mel Brooks' B&W movie "Young Frankenstein".
