Kids tend to believe everything their parents tell them.

Most white lies are completely harmless and many of them are told to keep the child safe.

Then some lies are told for their parents' amusement, like that time my dad told me that he had a metal plate in his skull which was why I was able to balance a small ball on his head.

Is it illegal to drive barefoot?

Yes, your control of the pedals can be affected by driving barefoot, but it is not in fact illegal.
