If I had a sore throat when I was little my mother would give me warm saltwater to gargle with. Since I normally drank water cold, I assumed that salt made water warm.

I used to think that salt and pepper cooled down food. This was evident beacuse people would try their food, say "This is hot. Salt and pepper, please."

my cousins would always eat sugar straight from the sugar bowl. i decided to try it, so i grabbed what i thought was a sugar container and really grabbed a salt container. i tasted it, and i decided i would eat straight salt. one day my mom told me i would have really high bloodpressure if i didnt stop, and told me that high blood pressure means that you heart has to work really hard to pump blood. i decided that i would give my heart a "workout" by eating more salt. i eat straight salt to this day, and now im 22.

Since you always find salt and pepper on the table, I always figured they were opposites and adding one would take away the other. I didn't figure it out until I turned perfectly good chicken soup into a firepit of seawater.

I remember noticing that salt is often labelled Table Salt, and pepper Ground White Pepper or Ground Black Pepper. I thought that meant you were supposed to keep the salt on the table and the pepper on the ground.

Because salt is white and pepper black, I used to believe that if you over-used one, you could cancel it by using too much of the other. I had some pretty horrid meals before I realized "color math" and "food math" don't add up.

When I was little, I used to believe that salt could absorb water (because eating salt always made me thirsty I suppose). So, I decided to do a little experiment. I took a plastic cup and filled it with water and salt. I left it in one of my desk drawers that I didn't use and forgot about it for years! When I moved, I found it and, alas, the water was not gone. To this day, if you open that drawer, you will smell salt!

when i was little i heard salt was from the ocean, so i always thought divers went down there and scraped the rocks and brought it back up so we could eat it.

I had a friend who used to believe if you put too much salt on your food, you could use the pepper to "neutralize" the salt-taste (as if the pepper cancelled out the salt). He must have ruined a lot of meals!
