This is a question What nonsense did you believe in as a kid?

Ever thought that you could get flushed down the loo? That girls wee out their bottoms? Or that bumming means two men rubbing their bums together? Tell us about your childhood misconceptions. Thanks to Joefish for the suggestion.

I used to believe...
When I was 8-ish, I shared a bedroom with my sister, but I was allowed to stay in my parents' bedroom to listen to music and read for a bit before going to my own bedroom and going to sleep.

Parents' bedroom was much larger than ours, and in it was the boiler cupboard, whatever it was, full of all sorts of things (and it was where parents hide presents, I quickly found out...)

Anyway, as I would lie in this huge bed, I used to believe that behind the boiler, there was this portal that would open up only at night, and all sorts of beings would come out. They'd never leave the cupboard, but they would watch me. Normally it was just one person, like that Pink power ranger or a My Little Pony or a Lego toy or something, but sometimes I remember there being whole teams of cartoon show characters appearing in there.

I was also one to believe that my toys come to life when I'm asleep, like in Toy Story. To stop my favourite toys from coming to life, I used to tell them off and put them in my bed so they couldn't move without waking me up.
