When we are young, our minds are very impressionable and mine was no different. There are so many things in life that I believed were true that as an adult I have learned were not the case at all.

Parents, and especially dads, love to mess with their kids and tell them little lies that they think are harmless. They are when viewed as an adult, but when you go for several years of your childhood telling all the kids on the playground that something your dad told you is true, just to get laughed at, then maybe they aren't as harmless as you might believe.

I got a ton of those lies when I was a kid from both my father and my grandfather. They feed off this stuff and as a dad myself now, I understand why.

Those supposed truths were usually fabricated by parents or things we just believed as kids based on all the evidence we had at the time. Some of these things that were actually untrue, I believed a lot longer than I should have in my lifetime. I won't tell you which ones to save myself the embarrassment.

Here are 10 things that I firmly believed as truth when I was a kid that couldn't be more untrue. For the record, this list shows not only how gullible I was as a child, but how much fun adults would have telling us bold-faced lies.
