What are some funny things you used to think about or believe?

I used to think Mandarin Oranges were from regular oranges; sometimes when I eat an orange there is a little "baby" section the size & sweetness of a Mandarin Orange. If you've seen them, you know what I'm talking about lol. So I thought they peeled those off & canned them. I also thought "Anon" was a person. What strange things did you believe that seem silly now?

  • I believe that something important will happen to me at 9:11 am or pm someday. It seems that for the past decade, I always look at the clock when it reads 9:11

  • This is not me but what my mom use to believe but it's quite funny.
    She was never taught about sex properly at all.
    She read in a text book that sperm was microscopic so when her ex husband decided to go during intercourse she jumped up and thought she was bleeding to death. He had to calm her down and explain to her that she was not dying and that it came in liquid form. lol

  • Oh, my parents used rubbed condoms. So when I was a kid I thought that a penis was in the shape of a ribbed condom. As a preteen my girlfriends and I were drawing penises and when I drew a ribbed one I got laughed at. They said that penises don't look like that. I said, "My dad's must!"
