This conversation always comes up some time and mostly I find people have hilarious answers.

i personally used to believe that the ice cream van played really sad music because they were out of ice cream. I always wondered why I never saw them when the music wasn't playing...

So, what was the stupidest thing you used to believe. Don't be shy, only the internet will know.

I used to think that George Bush (junior, I don't think I even knew that his father was president) was related to George Washington because they were both named George.

Sometimes all you need is a good FUS RO DAH to blow all your problems away...
Someone posted this in a comment on youtube, and I kinda agree with him.

Basically, doesn't it sound likes he's yelling LOSE YOUR JOB?

(easier to tell on the video where the comment was found, 15 minutes of fus ro dahing the same dragon.

That's amazing megalpod.

So was this ad, which your statement reminded me of. It was apparently banned in some places, for reasons beyond my comprehension, but it was aired where I lived when it came out, so I'm posting it here.


EPIC COINCIDENCE IS EPIC.

I used to think Santa Claus was a good old man which distributed gifts for all good children in the world. Guess I was wrong, he is just a capitalist pig trying to eat all of our cookies.

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.

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!

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'm loving these birth things.

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).
