I Used To Believe
Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|A collection of childhood beliefs, such as thinking that cats are female dogs, that seeds swallowed will sprout fruit from your ears, and a primal fear of toilets. "Some of the beliefs come from overactive imaginations, but a lot are the result of parental misinformation (deliberate or otherwise). 'I Used To Believe' will remind you what it was like to be a child, fascinated and horrified by the world in equal parts." Submit your own misconceptions, and rate others. See, in particular, the categories of counting, science, nature, time, and school.|
