    My babysitter once told me when I was 7-ish that your mind melts the longer you use electronics. I believed it for a while and got scared using the TV.

    They used to tell me that you could get a baby if you prayed hard enough.... I told my mother to do it. Wasnt so easy then.
    They used to convince me that anyone who died went 'away' for a really long journey
    I think at one point, to keep my Christian faith strong, they told me there was only one religion.

    My parents told me the usual stuff like tooth fairy, Easter bunny, etc. and that if I look at a screen for long enough my eyes will go square. Also that if you wanted a baby you just needed to ask and babies just teleport out of the womb......

    So you know how they say "you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar?" Wrong.

    Set out a bowl of balsamic and a bowl of honey. The vinegar gets more.

    I was also watching a pot yesterday, and guess what it did? It boiled.

    i really have to stop reading xkcd obsessively

    The Lie: My mother told me we left Maryland (my birth-state) because the economy required workers to switch jobs every 6 months.
    The Truth: My dad couldn't hold a job there, and the economy of Maryland was nothing like that.

    The Lie: All males want to look at pornography when they phase into adolescence.
    The Truth: Not all males do this. They are inclined to do this and be curious because of hormones and whatever, but not ALL of us do this.

    The Lie: Broccoli come from trees.
    The Truth: While they do look like them, broccoli does not come from trees.

    The Lie: Video Games melt your brain and turns them to mush after half an hour of engaging in gameply.
    The Truth: Video games only hinder the proactivity of people. It encloses the audience in an engaging gameplay, distracting them from things that may be of priority. In this case, my dad, the one who told me this myth, was trying to keep me from developing a right brain.

    The Lie: Cartoons give you bad dreams.
    The Truth: While I did have nightmares as a kid, and watched a lot of Pokémon anime, the two were never connected. It's complete bullshit, if you ask me.

    Man you deserve a medal for reading in my minds.

    Well I got the classics of Santa Claus, Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. I never asked too much about those things that, you know... us, kids... don't want to know about them... at this early age *erhem*.

    That babies come out from behind.
    What's worse is that I came out via emergency cesarean and I had an exact flashback to it...
    I drift in and out. I'm more into the glitchy side of things, hate nearly everything post-HGSS.
    I'll probably forget what I offer on trade pages. If I do, just message me on Tumblr as I'm always on there.

    Finite is the biggest number.



    Finite isn't even a number, it's more of a concept really. I don't know where this lie even came from.
    even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
    ^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.

    That eating carrots would make your feet turn orange/ eating any green veggies would make my hands turn green. To this day... they complain about me not eating much veggies.

    My mom would constantly nag onto me about playing on my gameboy too much as a child, saying how it would make my eyes melt away and leave me blind.

    funny thing: carrots will actually turn you orange if you eat a lot of them. apparently it's because of this thing called 'beta-carotene'. i'd heard that steve jobs turned orange at some point.

    being handsome and smart was one.

    religion was another one for me personally.
