RE: Stupid things that you believed as a child
I believed late at night. If weren't asleep a floating monster would fly near your window throw you in his bag and take you away from my parents.

I had a toy puppet that had glowing eyes. For a long time I used to think something was living in my closet watching me.

I had the tan one in the right center.

I would also avoid cracks thinking it would harm my mothers back.

I thought ferrets were mice that were put on a stretching machine and stretched into ferrets.

I thought that if I went out, got some grass in the meadow next to our house and made nests for the local bird population that they'd be thrilled, come by and fly off with the entire nest. They never did but I kept making nests anyway.

I thought fish were in actual schools under the water learning fish stuff.

I thought bees made honey with some sort of tiny little machine. The machine had a crank that the bee had to constantly turn to make the honey come out.

For several weeks one summer I was convinced that I was invisible. I was the youngest of 6 and no one paid any attention to me so logically I was unseen and quite invisible. Unfortunately when school started up my mother found me.
Love the ferret oneSmile

I used to believe that when I rode in the car at night that the moon was following me. After all, every time I looked out the window, it was there!

I also used to believe that my body was hollow inside, and that when I ate, food dropped down to my feet and I gradually filled up. I'm not sure what I thought would happen when the food reached my mouth.

RE: Stupid things that you believed as a child
My uncle use to recite this:

There was a little girl who had a little curl,
right in the middle of her forehead.
And when she was good, she was very very good
And when she was bad, she was horrid.

I had whitish blonde curly hair when I was young and I thought he made that up just for me. It wasn't until I was 13 and read it in a poetry book for class that I found out he didn't. I was a bit crushed. Sad

That intelligence has anything to do with time spent alive.

I've known people who, despite being on the earth for 50 years, question nothing that immediately satisfies their bias'. Look at Fox News' audience.

And I've known 16 year-olds who are infinitely beyond their years. Little philosophers that can fix grannies computer to boot.

RE: Stupid things that you believed as a child
Upon seeing a nature film in a movie theater at the age of 6, I saw a fawn being born, the mom deer was profile so I didn't see the backside, just the fawn plopping out of the back. Next Monday I decided to announce on the school bus my new found knowledge that babies were born out of the ass. Yep I thought babies came out of the butt, not the vagina.
