    As a child, I'd often see signs at the side of

    the road 'Caution, plant crossing', I was convinced there would actually be trees and huge plants crossing the road.......stupid, but I was so disappointed then I learnt the truth!!

    majority of women waited

    until they knew what life they wanted to insert themselves into... truth is, they want special treatment because of how they come out and get extra money because "the next guy" wont like it if she stops using that expencive lotion >.>... dont you love overtime :)

    I believed if I stepped on a crack,

    it would break my mother's back. I stopped believing that when I found her still standing after I got mad at her once.

    I used to believe the government's view of

    events. I no longer believe men in a cave carried on the 9/11 attacks. Everything in history is based on bullshit. 9/11 was an inside job.

    Breastfeeding: When I was a child,

    I thought that since white women had white breast milk....that black women must have chocolate milk. And that red-haired women had strawberry milk. One of my more brilliant childhood theories.

    I thought if someone was sick

    and they touched you (not sneeze, cough, etc) or even poke you, you'd get sick. I thought if you make one person sick by infecting them, you get well. Kinda like playing hot potato I thought an old rusty door in my old house's basement that was locked up with wood blocking...

    Well, I believed a lot of stupid things,

    and most of them nobody even told me, I thought them for no reason. I thought grown-ups never cried. I used to think that the sun went down every night and the moon and stars went up, but I thought that there was a split second of complete and total darkness in between. I also...

    Heaven On The Moon

    When I was really little, 3 or 4, I thought that God lived on the moon. That he watched us from up there and that's where all the good people that died went. I thought the gray craters was some part of an elaborate robe or something he wore. Lol I would lay in the grass for what...

    When I was a kid I thought the world was going

    to blow up by a comet or something. I was watching that 2012 world ending video on YouTube and was terrified. This was when I was 9 or maybe 12. After a couple years I didn't want 2012 to come because of that video. When the year came I was like...oh wow, I'm a complete idiot...

    My Big Brother

    I grew up the youngest in a family of five kids. We were poor, which not only meant that I had to wear, ugly, outdated clothes and inherit broken toys (I could never get that damn mousetrap game to work!) It also meant, that if my brother and sister didn't have to go to school...

    Religion. I really don't want to believe this

    worthless world is it, but it is. If a meteorite was coming to destroy all life on the planet I wouldn't stop it. I've been this way for 4 years now. There's no shortage of times where I wished to believe again.
