I used to believe that drinking and driving applied to every drink. I pointed this out to Mom when I was seven. She nearly spat out her coffee.

In my religon, we are taught not to drink caffien, that it is bad for your body. Due to this, i grew up thinking caffien and alchahol were the same thing. I put drinks like pepsi and coke in the same catagory as beer and wine.
Anyway, one day we had a party at school, and there was pizza and pop. The pop was pepsi! i was astounded that they would serve an alchoholic drink at school. When i went home i was trying to tell my mom about it, but i forgot what drink it was so i told her it was beer! "Are you sure it wasnt root beer?" she said. "No!" i said, "it was the kind of beer with alchohol in it!"

When I was little, I thought that ladies were supposed to drink wine and men were supposed to drink beer. I also knew that alcohol was bad for you, so one night I assured my mom that when I grew up, I would drink "only" one bottle of wine each day (I figured that one bottle was one serving, since one can of beer is one serving of beer). My mom was so horrified that she made me promise never to drink it at all.

Years later, she supervised my first drinking experience. I suspect she was comforted when I came to the conclusion that alcohol tastes utterly vile anyway.

I used to believe that when you shook a soda bottle ( like a liter size) it would explode and flood the whole room. so i decided that i wanted a explosion of sprite, so i took a liter of sprite (unopened) and shook as much as i could, and when i opened it, it exploded all in my face. and unfortunately not flooding the whole room

For some weird reason my dad always called ice tea "Monkey Juice". I thought sense milk came from cows then Monkey Juice must come from monkeys. I didnt realize that Monkey Juice wasnt a drink until I was 6 talking to my friends about it.

top belief!

My little sister (not a native English speaker) thought that the name of the "7-Up"soda is actually Zup, and the pronunciation "sevenup" is just one of the irregularities of the English language.

You know how water damage in buildings ceilings can leave a brown stain? When I was in elementary school I used to think that those strange brown circles were coffee stains. Like, some teacher was surprised and jumped, causing her coffee to fly out of the mug and splatter on the ceiling.

When I was younger I thought that the popping sound in my soda was tons of people clapping. Then I felt bad after I drank the soda.

When I was little, I used to think that the soda machines in restaurants were hooked to pipes that came directly from the factory. The first time I encountered one that had run out, I was confused, but then I said, "Oh! The factory must be closed." Naturally, everyone else had no idea what I meant.

My sister's friend thought that a "Hard" drink meant it was extra sweet. She drank a bunch of 'Mike's Hard Lemonade' without noticing.

When I was younger my friends convinced me that Dr. Pepper tasted like actual black pepper. [hanging head in shame] And I remember thinking to myself whenever I saw someone drinking it "How can they drink pepper?!??!" I finally got the guts to try it when I was like...18 or 19. I'm 25 now and it's my 2nd fave soda. (Pepsi rules the world!!!)
