    This thread always gets plenty of laughs on FP, so I've been meaning to see how it rolls over with Kinmunity. Finally got around to it.


    Well, thread title is self explanatory, just try as hard as you can to dredge up those distant childhood memories and along with it all the completely asinine things you believed to be true as a child, either from your own imagination or stuff your parents told you to keep you out of trouble. Most common ones are probably "girls pee from their butts" and "they have to re-shoot the movie every time it plays on the tv"

    I forget why, but for a significant period of time in my elementary school years, I used to believe that cats and dogs were the same species, and that cats were "girls" and dogs were "boys".

    When I was younger, I always thought that the higher you got, the hotter it got up until you hit the sky, when you would hit the sun and burn up

    When I was younger I thought headache we're really tigers eating my brain. And I thought the stool softener chocolate piece was actual milk chocolate pieces and ate it all gone. That Experience was horrid.

    I used to think that teacher lived in school, and substitute teachers were in a closet neatly folded and taken out as needed.

    One weird thing I believed was that everyone had their first child at marriage (like, that receiving the child was part of marriage), and also that everyone got married at 25.

    When I was a kid i thought someone manually operated traffic lights from a building window nearby, and never understood why they would make us sit at a red light when no cars were coming lol.

    When I was watching TV with my parents, I asked my dad how the people inside the TV can fit in there and where they go when we turn the TV off and how it works with switching people inside the TV when changing channel.

    I firmly believed as a child that the moon simply could not exist during the daytime, and if you saw it during the day it was clearly a fake moon. A devious imposter moon! I also believed that the reason far off mountains seemed to not move when you were driving was because they running REALLY FAST beside you on a million little feet wearing red shoes and it created the illusion of them not moving.

    Hmmm...I guess I didn't really believe silly things like that really. I used to believe in a lot of horror stories though. They scared me so much that I now have the instinct to not sit on the bed facing the doorway or else the candyman will get me.

    Hmm, my mum was a pretty sensible person, and she always made sure I knew how the world worked, so I didn't really have any beliefs like that. I guess the closest thing for me was whenever I heard people talking about someone cracking their skull open I imagined baked beans spilling out of their heads.

    I remember believing that bats lived in every attic and were just hiding whenever you came around so you wouldn't move them out. Also I remember thinking that the reason that some wires in electrical lines were thicker was so the birds had a place to huddle up together during cold days, like they were designed especially for that.

    I used to think that words weird made in a fabric. Stuff came from a conveyor belt and then two dudes made up a word for it in every language.

    The large hay balls you can see on fields wrapped in white plastic, I thought they were never melting snowballs during the summer.
    I also thought dolls were evil creatures coming alive at night to haunt us all and walk around the house, but they were nice and none living during the day.

    This seems fun. Well, when I was small I was really into dinosaurs and that sort of stuff. I lived in a place called Marysville and it was out in the bush, I thkught every knobbly tree root sticking out of the ground was a bone. Also my mum used to tell me, and I believed her at the time, watching too much tv turned your eyes square.

    I remember I thought eleventeen was a number, and my friend convinced me I invented it and had to call the number people and let them know about it.
