as a child?

My older brother never ceased being amused at feeding fresh-bullsh!t in to my young, gullible mind.

He told me that elves work in airports and take your bags to the plane, but you can't see them! Nooooo, they're shy you see. But sometimes, if you're lucky you'll see a little green hand at the luggage check-in pushing your bag along. One time when we where one the plane he shouted, staring out of the plane window 'Quick, look elves!' when a looked round only to see a man in a high visibility jacket I assumed that I had been too slow and the elves had retreated inside the plane. My brother started laughing so hard when I shared this hypothesise with him. I had no idea why at the time, but I laughed anyway.

I also made up my own random bullsh!t facts for example:
Did you know that the rain is Jesus tears? And that snow is God's spilt table salt?
My bed hides a portal to a world of (mostly) friendly demons?
Stuffed toys protect me from the evil demons who escape said portal.
It really was Rudolf who climbed down my chimney ate that carrot I left for him on Christmas eve.
I can control waves by making deals with Poseidon and agreeing to marry his son, the sea prince when I turned 19.

Your turn.

I used to believe my dolls would play by themselves and get back into positions when I came into the room.

I used to believe, when I was a Catholic-Christian, that there where hospital beds up in heaven(up in the clouds).

I also believed, when I was 5-6 years old that the devil was real and that at night he was in the house lurking in the shadow.

I used to think that people on TV could see me, like I could see them. So as a small child I hated watching TV because I felt really self conscious.

I used to believe that if I turned off the lights in my bedroom then they would never work again, even if you changed the light-bulbs. This terrified me as a child.

That the police were obligated to respond to your cries for help. And on a related topic . That police can't do that
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

I used to believe that you had to, uh, take it in the a** to reproduce. I found out the hard way in 4th~5th grade.

I used to believe that politics mattered and the parties were for the people that they were supposed to speak for. Now, I see the politicians taking polls to see what matters to the public and then constructing their rhetoric by this information to make those who still support them believe they are on the same sheet of paper.

I was raised by women and my teachers were women. I honestly believed that when people grew up, they became girls.

I once believed that when the groom kisses his bride at a wedding, his sperm is transferred from his mouth into the bride.

And that, my friends, is how babies are made.

What if you never believed that but just imagined that you did?
If I offend you, I am genuinely sorry.

That is beyond weird, but I've been weirder than that, I must admit.
