My friends used to believe in ouija boards (they're a board with letters and numbers on it that you supposedly use to communicate with spirits of the dead). I didn't believe in them at all until one day when my friend and I were alone in my house we asked the spirit to make a light go out... and it did. (true story)

Yeah, that's what I was thinking. When he was born, how did he know what an ice cream cone is?

Same feeling when you try to figure out how the people in Star Wars, long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away, knew what a falcon is. They named a ship the Millenium Falcon, but falcons are on Earth, in a galaxy far, far away from them...
The bird was named that because of the space cruiser....obviously.

I remember when I was a small child my mother told me that if I did not finish my milk after I ate my cereal, Bessie the cow would ring her bell and Bessie along with other cows would come trample me. The more I think about it now the more I think that was a cruel thing to tell a small child! :oops:
Kinda like singing Rock a by Baby to a baby right?

YOU WIN! I have mentioned this (rather obvious) incongruity to many people and nobody has ever thought of that before. They were humans long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away, so apparently a few of them colonized Earth and brought the name "Falcon" with them and applied it to the bird (but somehow lost space flight capability and all the cool energy weapons AND the Force.)

Yeah we’re basically Ewoks with razors. The others took the technology with them after the pyramids were finished.

I also invented a LED sign that would go in the back window of your car so you could let other drivers know what you were thinking and feeling

I thought when a house went up for sale the people selling it had to find someone else who's house was also for sale, so they could trade.
lol i would probably believe something similar when i was a kid

Ohhh, I used to think welding rods were gigantic sparklers! But they would never light! :(

I think there was not a match left in the neighborhood when me and my friends found a welding rod and tried to light it!

Can you imagine if they were!? WOW!

I used to think the number 13 was very unlucky. It didn’t help matters when my father died on April 13th when I was 13 yo. I was so scared of that number for years until I met the Lord Jesus on an October 13th. :love: God is so merciful. :giggle:
