We compiled a few memories which I am sure would be a part of your childhood too. You know, dumb stuff we all believed as kids? So, enjoy some of the most hilarious and dumbest things you believed when you were little.

5. Honeybees make honey just like the way mom cooks food (like in pots with spoons).

Or you thought they poop it out.

7. You should never digest a bubblegum or else you die.

Or you know, you poop it out after 8 years or something. Not really true.

8. If you accidentally digest a bubblegum, you would have a balloon inside you (bubble balloon).

And then, you explode.

12. You’re an adopted child.

Whenever I had a quarrel with my parents or my sibling was preferred over me, I would have that feeling.

13. A stork or duck threw a baby sibling at your house.

This is all because of those cartoons you’d watch in your bachpan, waisay.

21. Lightning matlab angry clouds. 

It made sense back then, okay…

23. Actors dying in movies and dramas meant they died in real life too.

It has been a confusion for a long time that if an actor is already dead in one program, how is he alive again to become a different character in another drama/film?

LOL, these were some of the things we all probably believed in our bachpan. Do you have any other bizarre belief you remember and want to add? Don’t hesitate and share in comments.
