I used to think that a lot of pets you could own were actually wild animals. Ferrets, hamsters, lizards, turtles, snakes... I didn't realize you could buy these animals in a pet store until I was 12.

When I was about four my mom told me that millions of years ago people used to be chimps. And I went 'Did grandma used to be a monkey?' and I was sure that everyone was born a monkey and as they got older they turned human.

when i was 8 i belived that smurfs were real and that people cant see them but cats can. so when i discovered that robins eggs were blue i came to the conclusion that robins and cats ate smurfs which is why they fought in my backyard and were always under the pine tree in my backyard. i learned later that our cat was hunting rabbits in our backyard and that smurfs didnt exist at the age of 10

smurfs arnt real

When I was little my brother had a stuffed animal sheep and he named it pitpot. So I always thought that another name for a sheep was a pitpot until last year I found out it wasn't.

my mom and dad thought it would be funny to tell me (the 1 and a half year old) that cows were horses and horses were cows, so for a year they made me think that that was true and i guess my gram yelled at them and told them they should be teaching me the truth

Until a couple months ago (God) that only female humans had periods. I'd never seen a cat or dog that wasn't fixed (in a house) or a stray (outside) that, I guess, would be in the same spot the whole time or simply wouldn't clean themselves. It just seemed weird because, you know, your dog only has two holes instead of three (actually, four). Until I asked my mom why Kaya (my dog) didn't have a period...because she's never ovulating, because she's FIXED--duhh.

After I saw Jaws, I thought that sharks could be in any place that had water. Bath tubs, swimming pools, lakes, toilets, etc...

An old man in our neighborhood wanted to keep the kids out of his shed. He told us there was a porcupine in the shed that would shoot quills at us if we entered the shed. About 10 years after it dawned on me....there was no porcupine.

Obviously, there's a strong association between bunnies and eggs. Why? Not just the fact that they're both metaphors for fertility and new life, but because of Easter. So, for some strange reason, even though I knew rabbits were mammals, I thought rabbits laid eggs.

Meat did not come from animals. It was a different material entirely, I mean who could mix up chicken, pork and beef with chooks, pigs and cows? That's just silly.

When I was a kid my family was out for a Sunday drive one day and my dad told me the reason the cows we passed could stand on the hillside was because they had two legs that were a lot shorter than the other two. I believed that for years.

I was told that the reason why some cows could walk on hillsides was because the legs on one side of their body were shorter than the other...the person told me notice how they always walk in one direction. Since I only really ever saw cows from a passing car, it made sense to my child logic!

When I was in the 2nd grade, I became really obsessed with dinosaurs and thought that scientists were going to bring them back from the dead. For one reason or another I truly believed that a T-Rex would be assigned to our neighborhood and get all the people by reaching in through the windows and grabbing them as they walked by. I avoided windows till 5th grade.

when i was younger my two sisters and i would always go to our neighbors' house and play various games with them. one night we were playing hide and seek in the dark and to make it less scary(we were all under 10) we got into groups of two,i was with my neighbor's brother who was 9 and i was 8. i suggested we hide in the weeping willow tree in his back yard. he asked me if i knew about the bats,i said no. he then informed me that large bats the size of owls lived in weeping willow trees and pee on anyone's head that walks by at night. since he was older i belived him. to this day i aviod walking under weeping willow trees at night.
