I used to believe that when my father went out from home he spied me with cameras to control if I payed videogames or I did my homework
One of my classmates in kindergarten told me that Germans were filthy people and that Germany was a place filled with germs and you can get sick if you come in contact with a German. I believed this for a very long time and started to be scared of other people, because they might be german and i didn't want to get sick!
I used to think that blue was a natural hair color but it as very rare, even rarer than ginger.
I used to think that fires were random and they could happen anywhere at any time. I used to be afraid of a fire happening under me because I would get burned.
I used to think that most parrots are as articulate as the average four-year-old. The things they would say made me jump to that conclusion. I was right, depending on which parrot you're talking about- Alex the African Gray is said to have the language skills of a four-year-old or a precocious three-year-old.
I used to believe that Germans were Nazis and liked Nazi related things. So one time in 2nd grade i drew a picture of her wearing a swastika shirt and showed it to my teacher(who is German). I didn't know why she was so mad when i showed it, i thought that she would like it because she was German. I had no idea that most Germans hate Nazis!
When my mom(who is of german decent) would rush me for something(like getting dressed for school), she would say something like "Hurry up, you're gonna be late for school! Schnell, schnell!!"(which means "quickly". I thought she was saying "smell", so everytime she said that, i would smell my arm. I didn't know what she was really saying until i was 10.

Beatles - Penny Lane
Penny lane is in my ears and in my eyes.
There beneath the blue suburban skies, I sit up, meanwhile back
And Elaine is in my ears and in my eyes.
Troll beneath the blue suburban skies, I sit up, three wild ducks.
