When I was very young I thought that "B.C." stood for "Before Cloth." Prior to that time, I imagined everybody was running around wearing animal skins because they didn't know how to weave textiles yet.

I used to believe only black & white spotted cows can make milk; therefore, they are all female cows. The sad part is I didn't realize it's not true til I was in college!!

I used to think that there was only 1980 and 1981. I thought that we just alternated between the two, I got really confused when we got to 1983 because no-one had ever explained to me how years worked...

When I was a child, the "This is your brain on Drugs" (Where they fry the egg) commercials would play all the time during the Saturday Morning cartoons. I completly misunderstood those commercials and believed that the act of frying an egg in butter would somehow make it be "Drugs" I learned quickly how wrong I was when I yelled at my mom for "Making Drugs" for breakfast one saturday morning.

'God is always watching' my mother would tell me endlessly as a child. I always wondered how many televisions god would watch simultaneously and did he ever get bored simply watching me washing my teeth, so I would dance around to entertain him so he wouldn't get bored.
