I am really gullible. I'll believe 90% of what people tell me.
What's the stupidest thing you've believed?
Tch, really, thinking about it now, I don't know what I was thinking.
Thats not massively stupid. Someone told me Ken Livingstone was blind. I believed them for about 2 years but then was like "hang on a minute"
UR so gullible.
It's all downhill from here.
unless you knew it was a trap.
i reckon you still believe it
CATS DON'T GROW UP TO BE DOGS TEH WZA!
So there's no reason for me to get defensive about whether or not people think I believed the cat->dog thing. It's quite a cute idea I guess, so I'm not fussed either way.
I R so gullible. :-)
Last night she told me that someone told her taking Night nurse sucked out all the water in your brain, which in turn makes it shrink and this is why you sleep so soundly.
Probably. She has a habit of half reading/seeing something and then blowing it way out of proportion.
She once came home in a right state saying that she was really upset that there was going to be another war in Iraq and that it was going to be so bad that the war would come over to the UK. Turns out it was possible conflict in Iran and she she thought hezbollah was somewhere in the North. True story.
that's where they go for stroll along the prom
My former boss couldn't point out Britain on a world map. Or any other country, 'apart from possibly America, because that's quite big isn't it?'
There were a million other stupid things she came out with, but I found this the most astounding. I just kept saying 'have you never even seen the weather on TV before?' :(
- saying the caretaker's silver hair made him look very 'extinguished'
- 'Macedonia nuts'
- aggh so many I can't remember, and I kept promising/threatening to keep a diary of them!
extinguished hahahaha im crying
who believed Arabic was the most widely spoken language in the world. Talk about paranoid. You'd think, with him being one of the 1% or so of Americans who've ever actually left the US (and the 1% of THEM who've gone to Africa), he might have been a bit more clued up.
I know this isn't *quite* on the same level as not being able to find your own country on a map, but still. Americans, eh?
There was a book that showed this kid getting square eyes from sitting to close to the tv it was horrific. :(
somebody once told me that the internal organs/intestines of those tiny little red spiders were long enough to go around the world 18 times.
I'm pretty much the least gullible person, but for some reason this stuck with me.
A couple of months ago I was telling someone this nugget of information before realising towards the end that there was LITERALLY no way this could be possible.
I felt pretty stupid.
for quite some time after we finished laughing at you.
than i'm voting for him.
i've also just remembered he got run over outside the school on 3 seperate occasions.
but turns out i didn't. I didn't fill in the form correctly. I'm not only gullible but I'm really stupid.
i was nine ish i think and she was cleaning saddles n stuff and in her hand was a large block of what looked like toffee. i asked her what she was holding , she said 'a large block of toffee, would you like some?' i said 'yes' and took a large bite. it was saddle soap or summat. needless to say, she had the last laugh.
For shame :)
boyfriend from the internet who lives in Brighton is not a member of the CIA, like he told her over the phone
he has also changed his name to kurt russell by deed poll
Or is this some 'daft glaswegian in gullible shocker in gullible thread' joke type thing?
at the age of twelve, he was told by his parents he could choose any name he wanted (they were part of a cult where choosing your own name was a coming of age thing)
he chose kurt russell.
i got him in the recent mix cd swap. he made a good cd.
Got home and someone had even edited it into his Wikipedia entry. :')
that an octopus could predict football results.
People just always get me with little nuggets of info that are *plausible* until you stop for a second.
I never do :(
by saying names of Italian footballers in a ridiculous super mario style Italian accent and adding some 'de's in the middle. I said something like "genarro gattuso francesco di totti de andrea de pirlo" and told her it meant something ridiculous. She believed I was fluent.
In hindsight Im not really sure why I did this but it seemed like a fun thing to do at the time.
When I was in my first year of uni, this really fit girl came up to me asking if I was in a band. I told her I was the bassist in Towers of London (this was 2004, mind). She believed it, but I think I chickened out when she wanted me to dance with her after that. Idiot!
Maybe the bassist of the Towers of London is a notoriously brilliant dancer and she was trying to catch you out.
I just don't tend to question people on stuff.
i'd love to
looking back his story had massive holes in it
even up to university years I would literally believe pretty much anything anyone told me. Over the years I have believed:
Age 11 - 12: A guy told me that his dad had bought him a Ferrari, and that he was racing in the British grand prix. I was disappointed not to see him on the TV, but believed he had a flat tyre.
Age 14 - 15: I was told that people regularly used to die in slipknot mosh pits. I really wanted to see them at the time but was put off by this story. I also believed the girl from arch enemy had had her voice box mutilated so she could scream like a man.
Same age: I was told that you could get your whole arm up inside a girls vagine, and that the clit was the size of a tennis ball.
Age 15: I was finally sat down and told definitively the Santa was not really. Up until that point I had not even questioned it, despite catching my parents on more than one occasion delivering the presents.
Just before university: I was told that vodka was chemically made, and that it would kill you instantly if you weren't a 'hardcore' drinker.
At university: There is quite a famous story in Southampton uni about a tunnel that leads from the biomedical campus to main campus. I spent about 2 hours walking round the place trying to find it, despite it not being marked on a map.
There seems to be a rumour of some slightly far-fetched, but vaguely plausible tunnel, in just about every town. Hospital to hospital, town hall to train station, or what have you...
That's why it's not in the dictionary.
I once thought that THATCHER WAS DEAD.
