"What are some unwritten 'sibling code' rules?" –– Thanks to Redditor COOLDOOD16, we're about to find out. The sibling code is a real thing, ya'll. Honor it!


"Mom and dad..."

Giphy

Mom and dad are going to try and get us to turn on each other, if for any reason you deviate from the cover story we agreed on I will throw you under the bus so fast the bus will be totaled.

Also if you are about to go out and do something stupid and dangerous you have to let me know in case something happens to you.

"The younger one..."

The younger one always plays Luigi.

"You'll inherit..."

You'll inherit my old stuff.

"It's been a nuclear war..."

Mutually assured destruction. It's been a nuclear war deterrent for as long as there have been nukes so there's no reason it shouldn't work on your little brother or sister.

"On family vacations..."

On family vacations, we must stick together to survive.

"There is a line..."

There is a line in the backseat of the vehicle. That side is yours, this side is mine. Cross it, and mom is being told.

"If you get in trouble..."

If you get in trouble, you DO NOT, under any circumstance, bring something up that will get your siblings in trouble too.

If mom told us to do something, but we want to slack off, we blame it on the youngest.

"You cannot..."

You cannot have the same favorite anything, whether it be a color or an animal or a character in a movie you are never allowed to like the same things.

"Make sure..."

Make sure the Younger Sibling gets some time on the Playstation, otherwise you'll hear about it at every family gathering for the rest of your life.

JMFR

"If someone leaves..."

If someone leaves the room without a declaration, the TV becomes fair game. If there is a declaration, respect that otherwise it becomes anarchy. Same thing goes for seats, food, etc.

Dating and the search for love and companionship... What a nightmare.

This journey plays out nothing like in the movies.

Every Prince or Princess (or everything in BTW) seems to have a touch of the psycho.

The things people say during what should be simple dinner conversation can leave a dining partner aghast.

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:

"What's the dumbest thing you believed as a kid?"
