Funny things you believed as a child.

Recommended Posts

1:

As a little kid I always thought that you could take a power outlet anywhere and just attach it to a tree or whatever, plug in an appliance and it would work.

2:

due to old movies and photographs being black and white I seriously thought the entire world was black and white and that sometime in the 50s or so, colour was invented.

Anyone?

As a kid in the early 2000s, a teacher told us that the british conservative party would never win an election again due to demographic shifts.

I have a brother named Jason and when I was around three years old at the video store I thought the Friday The 13th movies were about him after my mom read me the titles (I was not allowed to watch them at that point).

That Guns N' Roses were a cool band. :lol:

One silly thing I believed was that the sea had a plug in it, in the same way a bath does. I was worried that someone would accidentally pull the plug out.

When I was really young, I thought that there was a risk that while I was peeing Ronald McDonald might crash through the window, knocking me over. This didn't actual freak me out too much as I just took what I considered to be reasonable precautions. :lol:

Was this in the McDonalds toilets or just generally?  If the latter, what made you think Ronald McDonald was a pedophile? :lol:  There's some sort of psychological entanglement associated to this, I'm sure of it :lol:  Did you Uncle Percival dress up as Ronnie Mac and put his finger up your bum at some early age or something? :lol:  Or was it just me that happened to?

It was only the toilet at home actually! My young mind didnt include a sexual angle, my butt hole thankfully untouched by your uncle :lol:

I just peed from the side of the bowl with back facing the wall with the window, so that when Ronald McDonald came swinging through the window he'd fall on the floor where I would put him in a full nelson and walk him to the highway. :lol: And, I mean, I maintain a battle ready posture to ward off capitalist to this day - so to speak :lol:

Or maybe I just wanted to play "swords" with Ronald McDonald, get off my jock! :lol:

I thought God looked like the ringmaster from Dumbo

I remember my Dad telling me when I was younger that cars driving with their full beam headlights on was dangerous because they could blind people in front of them. I didn't realise he meant temporarily and thought for a while that if I ever was unlucky enough to be passed by a car with full beam on then I would lose my sight.

I'm reasonably sure I thought that second one too! 

I know my brother thought that horror movies were real. Like he thought that people were actually being killed in them. 

One crazy thing that went around when I was a kid was this claim that every person on earth has a doppelganger on the other side of the planet. 

I have no idea how or why that was a thing spread around amongst kids but I definitely believed it when I was little because I didn't know any better.

I believed that if I ate an apple seed then a apple tree would grow in my stomach. 

I hated the plug hole in the bath because I was convinced a great white shark could get through it and into the bath with me. 

Sometimes when I was riding my bike I thought a pterodactyl might swoop from the sky and carry me off to its nest on top of a volcano, so I’d pedal like mad to get home :lol:

Speaking of religious things, when he was young, my wee brother thought that the lord's prayer started off:

"Our father, in charge of heaven, hello by the way..."

Holy shit, that's just delightful.

I used to think that TV shows waited for me to get home before they started. I was devastated one night when I went to the shop with my Grandma and when we got back I'd missed The Fall Guy. :lol:

I did too.

I looked behind the TV to see the programme from behind too

I thought thunder was the clouds banging together

I was thinking about this, but I couldn't come up with any silly thing I believed in. But now you mention that, I did believe that too. Funny :lol:

I wouldn't call that funny, but visionary! That's exactly how it is for kids nowadays.
