I remember a saying with school, that if you sneezed 8 times on the run, you would have an orgasm. I'm forty fuckin three and just sneezed 6 times on the run andi never thought 'oh I need a tissue' I thought, 'ooh another 2 sneezes and I'll have an orgasm' 🤣🤣

Nothing fact based please.

Just the sayings that went round in school that you kinda believed but were vvu!!

If you try to sneeze with your eyes open, they will pop out of your face.

That’s not a statement of fact by the way, it’s what they used to say at school!

Oooh and another. If you open your bag of crisps upside down it means you fancy someone. I still say to DH ‘so who have you got your eye on’ when he does it.

A boy's pubes were the same as his haircut - curtains were popular at the time confused

if you fart during sex you become paralysed 😂😂

My friend told me that when a man is having sex a purple ball comes out (I assumed from his penis, she never elaborated). She was 10(!) at the time!

Did anyone get told about that person who put 5 fruit pastels in his girlfriends vagina and swallowed one extra that was a “HIV lump” or were we just over imaginative

Stoppissingonmyheather Thu 04-Mar-21 00:21:27

I have never heard of any of these

@Bellver888 didn't have that one but there was ' a girl in yr x sat on a stand in the chemistry lab and it went all the way up her' obviously now I know it's not possible to fit 50cm of pole in to your vagina but then.. well!

Also this was an actual thing I heard, in sex ed with the scariest female teacher ever, she was about 4foot tall but commanded respect immediately, she was talking about male orgasm and then showed us a video of sperm swimming and Darren in front of me asked if he could keep one if his in a tank as a pet.. she had to excuse herself from the room grin

I remember hearing that if a boy came in your mouth, you would get cancer, but remember when michael Douglas said his throat cancer was due to cunnilingus? It took me back to the school theory. Only as a fleeting thought, but I bet he heard that in school Haha

That if you walk over three drains something terrible will happen and you must immediately walk over two drains to cancel out the bad luck. Still avoid three drains to this day.

It was 7 sneezes at my school. We put a fair amount of faith in the teacher being 10 minute late you could legally leave. And if the power cut cor more than ten minutes, and if it was below 16c in the building. Lots of wishful thinking

Yes!! Also if you walked backwards under a street sign, you would reverse any bad luck

You just lost the game.

If you turned round chanting Bloody Mary 3 times in the PE changing room mirror something bad would happen to you before the end of the day.
If you did the buttons up on your school blazer you were 'square.'

Not a saying but if you squeeze your chin and there's a line down the middle, you have a 'bum' chin. If there's no line, it's a cherry.

Also, there was always a rumour about some sort of killer on the loose on overnight school trips.

If you didn't sit with four chairs legs on the floor, you'd over balance and break your neck. At one point, I wondered if this was something they put on in teacher training college, because pretty much every teacher said it, but I never saw it, despite people leaning back on just the two back legs of their chair in many lessons.

There was a quite low fence between the fences of our selective single sex school and the state school adjacent to us. It was our playing field but not massively used to the other schools. All dinner ladies were clearly trained to tell us of we went to near we would fall into it and impale ourselves (on a penis from a boy I think was more the concern). It was a standard type fence, no big posts....

The upside down crisps Def means you're in love

Saying white lady on the mirror three times would mean you'd see her ghost

@ EBearhug
As a teacher, I’ve seen quite a few accidents when children have not been sat down properly. Heads needing stitches etc. It doesn’t matter how many times we say it though!

If you twisted the stalk on an Apple round and round saying the alphabet with each turn, you would reveal the first letter of your future husband’s when the stalk snapped.

That the school ghost moved though the pipes. Any time there was a knocking sound in the pipes it was Mabel, trying to communicate with us.

On the Mabel theme, no one ever used the last toilet in the row of six as it was bad luck to use it.
