    My parents use to tell me (because I use to watch WAYYYYY too much TV, but then still do) my parents use to tell me that if I watched TV too long, my eyes would turn into squares, and I serisouyl believed that, and after 2 hours of TV watching, I'd forcefully stop myself I could kick myself for believing that.

    My parents used to tell me not to cross my eyes because if someone bumped my head,my eyes would stay that way.

    I also used to believe that there is one hair on your head that if you pull it out,all your hair will fall out.

    I thought that a 'half-assed job' was a 'half asked job' ... because you only did half the job you were asked to do

    We had a water tower in our town. For a long time, I thought that's where the pee went when you flushed the toilet. Then I thought it was full of milk.

    My parents laughed pretty hard when I mentioned the milk thing and made sure to tell me it was a water tower. I never told them the pee theory.

    I remembered one I don't think has been mentioned. When I was little I thought people who spoke other languages must still think in English anyway.

    My mom and oldest sister were Canadian and had blue eyes. My dad, other sister and myself were US citizens and had brown eyes. So with that sample of the population I was sure that all Canadians had blue eyes and Americans had brown eyes.
