  • No, but on a different note, I thought the story from the movie The Titanic was real. I was so devastated to learn that it was not true.

  • Yea, lots of stories as a kid, my dad was a big joker, so anything outlandish we always took with a grain of salt...

    To be fair though if I took everything he said as true I'd still believe that there were monsters who stole children away that live in chinaball trees called "rugaroos" LOL

  • Not me, but my mom. When I was about 6 I encountered a mountain lion in my backyard & told my mom about it. She didn't believe me till YEARS later when she couldn't sleep, she was sitting in a chair in front of the bay windows over looking the backyard reading. She turned to look out the window & there was a cougar staring back @ her. NOW she believes me lol.
