I used to believe that Concorde's nose was used to drink water with when it was thirsty.
This 'factoid' remained uncorrected in my 'mental fact archive' until the age of 20 when watching an airshow on the TV.
I remember seeing Concorde coming in to land with it's nose bent down and thinking "Ah - it'll be having a drink after it's landed.... EHHH???? WTF???"
Thanks Dad for telling me that when watching an airshow on the TV when I was 4......

When I was little my parents told me that the holes in Swiss cheese came from mice. After the mice were done eating their share of the cheese, it was our turn to eat it. I didn't eat Swiss cheese for years.

One of my favorite TV shows was about a giant ball covered in lights that would be lowered onto the roof of a building while people below celebrated.

Every night I would ask my parents to let me stay up to watch it but usually they made me to to bed at 9:00, so I only got to see it perhaps once a year.

It wasn't until I was six that I figured out that the "ball dropping show" only came on once a year on New Year's Eve, explaining why I was allowed up until midnight to see it.
