If you're a younger sibling, you probably spent a lot of time looking up to your older sibling. If you're an older sibling, no shame, but you more than likely took advantage of that fact.
Recently, some younger siblings of the BuzzFeed Community shared some of the wildest things they believed because an older sibling told them it was true. Here are a few extra additions, plus a few more from some crafty older siblings.
1."When we first got our family dog, I was only 7 years old, and my older brother was 17. To 7-year-old me, my dog 'didn’t blink enough.' So, my brother convinced me that she was blinking when I was blinking. I had staring contests with the dog for at least two weeks before our parents told me to stop bothering the poor girl."
2."My older brother told my youngest that my mother bought him from a cabbage farm in Texas while she and my dad were on a cross-country road trip."
3."I was told that I could fly if I really tried hard enough and that one way to do is to hold your breath because the air will make you lighter. I believed this worked because I’d hold my breath and get dizzy after holding it for so long. I didn’t know what dizzy or lightheaded meant, so I thought I was making progress with flying."
