When I was pretty young I REALLY liked chocolate milk. Every morning my mom would fix me a glass for breakfast and she always mixed it just right. Well one morning my dad made it instead... with WAY too much chocolate. Later that day I had a terrible stomach ache and upon examination by an emergency room physician it was determined that I needed an appendectomy. For YEARS I thought that my dad had made me sick by putting too much chocolate in my milk. I don't think I ever let him fix it for me again.
when I was a little I put some milk in powder with water,and I thought I had discovered a new way to get milk without the cow...=p
I used to think that strawberry milk was made from pink cows. And then one day on my way to my grandfathers house i "saw" a pink and i asked everyone if pink cows aren't ral, thta means the one i saw was the only one in the world, how comes it isn't famous?"
when i was about 4, i thought that cows drank the milk and made it. i asked my mom why they drank ehat they made and she told me they drank water. she probably laughed her head off when i left. i also thought the same for bees, only with honey.
My father swore that if you ate fish and drank milk, you'd die. We believed him until we would sneak and test out the theory. Obviously it did not work, at least for us. Valdimar

When I was a kid grown-ups always told me to drink my milk because it would make my muscles grow. I wanted big Popeye arms, so I would swallow my milk on the right side of my mouth for my right arm and the left side of my mouth for the left arm.
I didn't believe that a cow's milk and the milk in the fridge were at all related!
When I was little, I thought someone lived behind the shelves where the milk was. I mean, I did see the milk being restocked, so why shouldn't there be someone living there to restock it? AND ONE DAY, I recall seeing the actual person who lives there, and I was really excited, so I told my mom. She didn't believe me one bit, of course.
When I was young my cousin told me (which I beleived for years of my young childhood) that skim milk was different to normal milk beacuse the farmers used to skim some skin off the cows after and add it to the milk.
when i was around 8 years old, my dad let me watch clockwork orange. i think he only let me watch it in hope that i wouldn't understand any of it. The only bit i did understand was that the milk had drugs in it. until i was about 15 i never drank milk, and didn't really like people who did coz i thought that all milk had bad drugs in it.
I use to believe that everyone hated milk
When I was a little girl, my father told me that cows stood in water on hot days to keept the milk in their udders from curdling, which could lead to painful milking. I believed this until the age of 24 when, traveling down a highway with my future husband I informed him about this little piece of trivia. He straightened me out. When I told my father about what happened, he said it had been a joke and he couldn't believe I had bought it all these years!
When I was in Kindergarten the kids used to say that if you drank chocolate milk you would turn darker,and that if you drank regular milk you would turn whiter;and I used to believe them.It's funny becuase I'm Mexican so I'm on the dark side and since I lived in a hot place I got darker so of course I thought it was becuase I drank chocolate milk.So from Kindergarten to like 5th grade I drank nothing but white milk becuase I wanted to stop getting dark.(Or something...I don't even remember why).Ha ha.Now I drink as much chocolate milk as possible.Ha ha.
My parents used to tell my sister and I that if we didn't drink all of our milk it wouldn't be a sunny day the next day. I'm pretty sure this is why I still drink so much milk...
My sister and I knew about brest feeding,but we couldn't remember what it tasted like. We believed that all girls of any age had milk. My sister, being the gulible one, obediently put her mouth on my chest. She claimed to have tasted some and said it was good. Then it was my turn. I put my mouth on her chest and said that I got some too! As you can tell, we were young and oh so stupid.
when i was really little, i saw a cup of sugar in the kitchen, and for some reason, i thought my parents were trying to make milk. so i poured a bunch of water into it, and my parents got really mad at me.
At the age of eight, I GAVE UP thinking milk came from cows. The reason? A friend had an alternative theory she could PROVE. Milk didn't come from cows... it came from flowers, like nectar for bees.
The proof? Not so hard to find. Just walk through a grassy field in summer, pick a dandelion flower, and snap its stem in half with your fingernails...
I used to believe that milk was cow urine, and actually managed to convince most of my friends!!
When I was a kid my mom told me if you drank full strength chocolate milk it would give you worms. The only safe way to drink it was to dilute it with white milk. I'm pretty sure she was trying to save some cash!
