Random question of the day :]

Enjoy!

 Okay, mine is lame! When I was a kid I thought sky scrapers were the con trails of passing jets.

Around age 6, I thought if you punched a girl in the belly hard enough, she would become pregnant.

I used to think that if I couldn't accept, believe, and love some guy named Jesus, that I would be tortured forever and ever.

I used to think that Charles Berlitz's book about the Bermuda Triangle was factual.

I used to listen to Rush Limbaugh and agree.
LOL!

I did the same thing!
Embarrassing, isn't it?
I don't know if this counts as a misconception necessarily, but when I was younger I though that the "rear view mirror" was actually called the "review mirror". I think that's because I grew up in Boston though :D.
LOL.. My brother and I used to call the Lone Ranger 'The LONG RANGER'....
Lol, my civics teacher in sixth grade was from eastern Massachusetts. The entire class thought that King John had issued the Mag-nah Cah-tah in 1215. I can still hear that intoned in a perfect Boston accent, even more so than the "pahked the cah in Hahvahd yahd" phrase.
I used to heaven was physically in the skies and I thought god chilled on the clouds. I wondered how we never spotted god with our satellite images and jet planes...
I believed the things my father told me were true.
I have so many...

I used to think that you only had sex once... and then you had however many kids you were going to have and thats why some people have 8 kids and others had 3 and some people only had 1. I just couldn't imagine intentionally wanting to have 8 kids.

An even funnier one was that for a short while I didn't think girls did number 2. I put women on a pedestal. They were different, Purer, Cleaner, then guys... How could they possibly do something as disgusting as 'poop'?

LOL Fortunately it didn't take long for the right girls to come around and rub my nose in reality!!

Figuratively, I hope.

Let's see... personally, I thought my parents were holding out on me when they wouldn't buy me stuff at the store. It's not that I was spoiled and thought they had to buy me stuff; it's that my dad explained that he didn't have enough money to buy me toys every time. I saw right through that line though. If he didn't have enough money, he could just go to the bank and they would happily give him more!

My biggest misconception is that I thought adults had even the slightest clue as to what they were doing. What a long and painful process undoing that mad belief was.

Ha! Yeah, me too. That was a doozy.

Same here! I had absolutely no concept of money as a child. Actually, it's arguable that I have one now.
