    I'll start with being told that eating a watermelon seed will cause it to grow in your stomach

    I almost shat myself I was laughing so hard at this. I can't tell you how many times I got the same response from my parents. Sometimes it was along the lines of "we're doing what grown-ups do when you play your nintendo" or "helping your daddy relax". Good memories :confused:

    Santa Clause is real.
    If you make a face or position too long, it will get stuck that way.

    Way back when I was like 6 or 7, I was told that we were going to Disneyland, and we ended up at the dentist's office. To this day, I still feel betrayed and robbed of a fun day.
