I used to believe that mountains are actually the bodies of dead dinosaurs, covered by the earth.
I grew up in a small town with a factory on the outskirts. This factory processed the diatomacious earth that is found prevelant in our area, and we were facinated by the white fluffy smoke stacks that billowed during operation. My brother and I always thought that what this factory did was to make clouds and these floated all over the world. We were so convinced that this was a cloud factory! To this day, we still call the plant the "Cloud Factory".
I thought for sure I was going to encounter quicksand at moment, so I always looked for a quicksand exit strategy wherever I was.
I used to think the earth was a little ball and the only thing on it was my neighbourhood with the houses all sticking up instead of tiny land covered with clouds.
Since the earth has literally millions of islands, lakes, and rivers, ANY of those geographic forms that I randomly drew HAD TO EXIST somewhere in the world.
i used to believe that dead cows were hidden in all long grasses. for some strange reason i was petrified of touching a deceased cow in any way....but i could eat beef. :)
when i was a kid my mom and dad told us mountains were dinosaurs and one day they would wake up and shake off all of the trees.and of course being the gullible little kid me and my brother were we believed it.
when i have kids i am gonna say the same exaxt thing.
When I was a little girl I used to believe that Islands floated and were attached to the bottom of the ocean with a bath chain and plug
When I was in kindergarten, I'd walk home from my bus stop every day BUT stop at a large rock and talk to it, telling it all about my day and my deepest, most secret feelings. I did this the whole year and thought it was my best friend.
When I was little, I believed the hills were giant dinosaurs, waiting to awaken. This scared me to no end on trips to the local snow fields. I still don't know if this is true or not
I used to have a reoccuring dream that I would be digging a hole and then someone would say you've disrupted the o-zone layer and then my body would become disfigured, like looking into a mirrior at a fun house. I was afriad of the o-zone laywer and digging holes until years later when I learned in school that the o-zone layer was not a layer of dirt.
I used to believe that when I looked up to the sky was actually looking at the ocean on the other side of the world (which went hand-in-hand with the fact that I used to believe we lived INSIDE the earth, not on it).
after i learned that the globe was spherical, i was very confused. I thought that the moment iget to the poles (north/south) i would definately fall, and i wondered how ocean waters never fall in space.
My sister and dad would tell me that hills, were giants that were burried. The hill that our house was on was the Jolly Green Giant's Father.
i thought clouds were marshmellows that were dropped. I also thought that angels accidentally mixed blue dye with the air, making it blue. I thought that trees were just over sized flowers and taht the trunk was like a stem that was hardened. I believed that rivers were made by giants' tears and they made oceans as well. I also believed that earthquakes were them walking. I thought taht giants made mountains as their sandcastles. i thoguht alot.
i used to think that if you jumped on the ground hard enough, you would break it and the ocean would be underneath and there would be loads of sharks swimmig around!!
I used to believe that mountains grew from tiny seeds, just like trees and plants.
i am from Sri Lanka.
When i was young i had no idea that the earth was a shere.
i thought the sea went and fell like a great waterfall, and that is why we do not see anything beyond the horizon.
also i used to believe that India was at the bottom of this great waterfall
I used to believe that i can turn the world upside down by looking through my legs while standing.
I used to believe (and still do?) that the earth hadn't been molten and retaining a centre of moltem metal, but had merely caught fire on the outside and a thin layer of molten earth remained. This was borne out by Jules Verne, in his 'Journey to the Centre of the Earth' book, So maybe I'm right?
