In cartoons, the superhero characters always have a cool pose while flying or whatever. I used to believe when i went to sleep in these poses, i'd wake up wakeup a superhero.

When we had a nationality-day coming up at school, I asked dad where we were from. He said I was half scottish and half finnish.
We had visited our grandparents (from my mother's side) in Scotland before, but I didn't remember hearing about Finland before.
Our last name is Finn (dad had taken mom's name when they married, he has later on said people couldn't pronounce his old one), so I figured it was somehow connected to Finland, and soon decided, my family has their very own country! I don't remember how long I believed this, but I just remembered it, when we were watching a movie where a woman announced she was the princess of Finland. I was a weird kid.

I believed that one half of the world was an exact duplicate of the other. So, whatever I was doing effected the "me" on the other side. If I got a strange twinge of pain, she was probably hurt from an accident or if I got hurt, she was probably wondering why she was hurting. Sometimes I'd make strange body movements to make her do the same thing.

I used to believe that life was actually a stage and everyone I knew and interacted with were actors. As soon as I left the room they would relax and go about their real business, whatever that might be.

One day in second grade everyone had to stand up and give a presentation about what nationality our family was. When it was my turn, I got up in front of the class and declared that I was half Irish and half Catholic. I had never even thought otherwise; it didn't make sense that I could be 100% Irish and 100% Catholic.

After noticing that my teacher could hardly contain her laughter throughout my presentation, I later asked my mom about it and learned that these were not mutually exclusive characteristics.

In those days before everyone had air conditioning, I had a fan in my bedroom window. And when I talked into it and it made the robot voice, I thought that anyone else who had a fan in their window would be able to hear it...like a walkie talkie? lol

Not sure where exactly to put this one but as a young kid growing up and going with my mom to stores,etc... I saw the mannequins and thought they only came to life after stores closed for the night and did whatever they wanted to after closing time and everyone was gone for the night. I stared at them everytime we went shopping and wondered what they did the night before or why do they look so bored..Hey..I was a kid ..remember...LOL!

I thought that when anyone else cut a paper with scissors they had to flip it over and cut it again. Since I could do both sides at once, i thought i was special.

When I was a young child like 7 or 8 years old, I learned that on one night in the whole year, whatever you wish for will come true.... so I wished for having wings and could fly! so, the next day, I started running all over my room and jumping from the top of my bunk bed flapping my hands to see if I could fly! LOL

When I was little (3 or 4) whenever I took a bath I thought the water was going to boil, so whenever my dad or mom would come to take me out of the bath I would yell "get me out before the water boils!!"

I used to believe that anything could happen or be brought into existence if you just wished hard enough and long enough. When I tried and it didn't work, I just thought that I didn't want it enough or didn't try long enough. Sometimes I'd try so hard and my body would be tense for so long that I'd actually be in pain. Actually, sometimes I still believe it, I just don't try any more because, well, ouch.

I used to swear that everyone saw colors differently. Such as what I saw as red someone else actually saw blue but called it red because that's how they learned it. I used to ask everyone to describe the colors to me to see if I was right. I was convinced that I was a genius because I had figured that all out by myself.

I used to believe that if you got inside a vehicle, the world moved, not the vehicle that you were in. But I still wonder what went through my mind when there were OTHER vehicles nearby...

When I was little, about 3 or 4, my brother, who was like 7 at the time, told me I was actually a boy but my parents really wanted a girl so they just pretended I was one. I believed him for a long time.
