    I Guess The Joke Is On Me

    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.

    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...

    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!!

    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...

    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...

    That God Didn't Exist

    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...

    Fingernail Worms.

    I falsely believed people would stick up (or
