There was all kinds of folklore about technology back then. People were clueless about it, so they would make up and pass on all kinds of crazy shit.

I can remember the nun who taught our computer classes in elementary school yelling at us for turning on the monitor and computer at the same time when starting up the Apple IIe. She was convinced we were "shorting out the circuit boards".
