I use to believe that if you left a glass of water next to your bed while you were sleeping it would get warm because flies peed in it.
In kindergarden, I read the side of juice boxes as 'Best Served Child' as they were stictly for children and thought this was very nice of the people who made a product just for kids - grown ups were not to drink it as it said so on the side of the box!
Years later I realised that it said 'Chillled', not 'Child'.

I always thought that whereever you saw bubbles, you saw fish. So I blew bubbles in my drink and found that there were no fish.
When I was around 6 years old, me and my brother thought you could make beer from salt and pepper. Don't ask us why we thought that, I just remember mixing salt and pepper together and thinking why it hadn't turned to liquid yet.
I used to believe that root beer was literally beer with roots. I was often served it in restaurants, and I would ask,
"Is it freshly made?" which would of course make the grown-ups laugh. It wasn't until I was 7 I figured out that it was actually a kind of soda.
When I was 12 or 13 my mom always used to let me order "virgin" pina coladas when we went out for dinner. i thought she was saying "version" until one day when I was 16 or 17 I went out with my friends and tried to order a "version" drink. my friends will never let me live that one down..
While out shopping with my parents at age 3 or 4, I saw a sign that said "beverages" and I assumed that this was some sort of term for a more grown-up person - at least 8 or 9 years old. When my mother told me to run ahead and pick out some juice, I was very worried that I would be arrested or yelled at for going down the "beverages" aisle when I had very clearly not yet reached a "bever age".

As a child I believed that Scotch whisky had other uses besided just drinking. For one I thought it provided the sticky substance on Scotch tape. So one day when I found that some old Scotch tape on a book of mine was no longer sticking, I tried to make it stick again by putting some of my father's Scotch on it. Needless to say, that didn't work. Knowing what I know now, I'm just glad that my father never noticed any of his Scotch to be missing. I really doubt that he would have believed my explanation if he had!
I knew that if you waited a little bit, food and drinks would cool down. I was astonished that my cold soda kept getting warmer instead.

I used to believe energy drinks could make you get temporary super powers after you drank it. I got very disappointed when I got out of my bed at night and sneaked into the fridge and drank some. I didn't get any superpowers. Come on!
