I used to believe that the Starwars episodes 4, 5, and 6, were actually 1,2, and 3. But then I figured out how to read Roman Numerals and found out that it was actually 4, 5, and 6. Then as I got older I found out that my first fact, was true.

I used to think that when women gave birth the baby came out of their belly button. My mum let me believe that ridiculous idea for far too long, though she could never explain to me why men had belly buttons too.


I'm loving these birth things.

Did anyone else get told that if you swallow chewing gum it will ball up in your stomach and stay there forever? I used to have a panic attack every time I accidentally swallowed it thinking my stomach would grow massive from too much gum stuck in it!


No..but I was told that it took 7 years to digest. Wouldn't say it was a stupid thing I believed...but not a smart one haha

I'm sure that everyone was told this at one time or another:
if you swallowed a seed, a plant would grow inside your belly. freaked me out when I drank fresh squeezed orange juice.

I didn't think babies would fit through the belly button, so I thought that a doctor put sticky velcro on the mothers stomach and then the doctor would just open the velcro, pull the baby out and then just pull the velcro off.

I thought that there were secret tiny rooms behind some walls.

I also thought that if you got eaten by an animal whole, you get to control it from the inside.

Another thing was that we are all already dead and are just watching a recording of our entire life.

I thought Chaotic was going to be as sucessful of a TCG as pokemon, and magic. It died after 4 years (btw I'm the biggest contributor on the Chaotic Wikia, the owner does not count).

I used to think mustaches were just really long nose hairs.
I used to think bad dreams were bugs that crawl in your ear while you sleep.
I used to think that when you wanted to listen you music, a signal was sent to the band telling them to start playing. So all CDs and radio were live. When you wanted to pause, skip or fast forward, the band responded to the messages they got. Shut up, it made sense.
I used to think that once people kiss, the girl become pregnant
I used to think that Pang was a girl, and I still do.
I used to think that there were no girls on the Internet until I met Pang
I used to think that the radio thing applied to tv and movies too
I used to think that some of my family were vampires.
I used to think that if I ran as fast as I could, people would just see a blur
