I used to live in a valley, with mountains either side of us. When my mum told me that people would go driving up the mountain, I could never work out why I couldn't see them. I thought that the smooth looking outline of the mountain (the tree tops) was where the cars would drive.

I used to believe that there really was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow- but it was always at the end furthest to where I was!

i used to believe that twin towns and cities look exactly the same as the ones they are twinned with. The houses, the streets, shops, even the people who live in 'em.
Then we drove though a twin town in Germany and everything looked different. What a downer.

Until I was about 9 I believed that all the globes and maps of the world used by people who lived south of the equator were upside-down to ours in the northern hemisphere with the south pole at the top.

When I was little, I thought that every time the sky got dark, God was walking out of a room, and he turned off the lights so his electricity bill wouldn't be too high.

When travelling along country roads at night, I thought the lights of distant towns were farmers lights so that they could plough their fields when it was dark

Up until when I was six or seven I used to think that the earth was flat! Funny how the Greeks thought the same.

When I was little I believed mountains were made of ice. Like they were big pointy ice cubes...From a distance they had a blue sheen to the (from the trees) and they seem to be covered in snow which is cold...So I always thought they were made of ice..I had a hard time beleieving anybody when they told me otherwise!

My infant school has a big hill in the playground and i thought it was just grass that was put over a giant who was sleeping. It was always a thrill to climb up there and roll down but you had to be careful not to wake or anger the giant (only certain people were allowed up there i thought)
This may sound stupid but I later met up with a randomer from the internet who was afew years older than me in my school and she believed the same thing!!

I live in West Virginia where a lot of our roads had to be cut out of mountains and there are signs all over the place that say "falling rock" to warn drivers that rocks sometimes slide off the sides of these mountains and hit cars. My grandpa told me told me Falling Rock was an Indian, so I believed that these signs meant an Indian reservation was nearby......There are no Indian reservations in WV that I know of......

I grew up near Bisbee AZ which is an old mining town. In the center of the city is a HUGE pit kinda like a mini grand canyon, well my uncle told me that they had dug out all that earth to make the penninsula of florida. Seemed reasonable to me at age 10 or so. The next time we drove by it I said "did you guys know......" my family let me go on talking about it for a while before informing me I was a gullible moron. My family is mean.

I used to believe that when the clouds were catching the sunlight in just the right way that it would appear "beams" were coming from the heavens, that it was God's way of saying it was going to be a good day. I wish I still had that kind of faith in things like "good days" as I did then.
