    When you are still a small child the world is presented to us in a completely different way and you believe all sorts of strange things, which you can only laugh good-naturedly at later.

    A user of one of the social networks asked about such strange beliefs, here are the most interesting answers.

    I thought dogs were boys and cats were girls. (LL Dickinson)

    #2 Watermelons and Pregnancy

    I thought that if I swallowed watermelon seeds, watermelons would grow in my tummy. And that pregnant women swallow watermelon seeds, that's why they have big bellies. (Pam)

    #3 Goldfish

    I was about 8 years old and one day I noticed that my goldfish was not in the aquarium. My dad told me she was at the vet and was getting married and would be having babies too. The next week I had two big goldfish and one little one in the aquarium… And I never fully thought it through until I was 20. (Sally)

    #7 The Power of Persuasion

    Obraz

    To have a child, you had to write a letter of persuasion to the government. Then they'd send you seed, which you'd eat and have a baby. So you always had to practice persuasive writing. (loser homebody)
