When I was a pretty young kid someone told me that those hard luggage cases people put on top of their cars were full of snakes. I can’t remember who told me this but I feel like it was either a cousin or an older relative who was just screwing with me. I never questioned why so many people were transporting snakes on top of their cars. We didn’t have that type of thing so I couldn’t disprove it. I’ve told this to other people trying to find out if it was a regional thing people said to kids or just my weird family. So far the consensus seems to be “Just you Piranha Plant; weirdo.”

Was there any outlandish or just mundane but wrong things you believed as a kid and who told you that?
