Once, I was laying on my driveway with my sister and friend at night just looking at the stars and I got a good idea. I told my sister that we were getting tans, and if you layed there long enough you could get really tan. She believed me, and I finally set her straight last year.
I used to believe that the moon could make make beautiful. I'd lay on a tiny little part of my bed where the moonlight was and go to sleep with the moonlight on me. PS It didn't work.
When i was litttle i used to believe that if a had a long enough ladder a could touch the sky.
We thought the moon was made of cheese and it was our dream to eat it
When i was about 4 years old i used to think the moon seemed to stay in the same place because god was holding the moon on a chain making it stay in the same place.. i know its sounds dumb
And when I was little I believed that the Moon was really the Earth and there no Moon at all. My mom then confronted me with this question: if that is the Earth, and there is no moon, what are we standing on? I patiently explained to her that there is a huge ziplock baggy hanging from the moon with dirt in it -- and that is what we were standing on.
I used to think that the moon wasn't the moon but was just a reflection of the earth. When people told me 'There's the moon' I would think to myself 'You're crazy'
I used to think that the moon had someone inside it, driving it. It's how I explained the fact that the moon moved along with the car as we drove.
I knew Earth was round, but I thought that we lived inside the Earth. I was so confused at how the space shuttle could get though the sky. The day the shuttle took off I searched the sky for the hole that it must have left.
i used to think the sun was a giant fireball like the ones from the mario brothers throw except a big one.
I grew up with my grandparents close to an Air Force Base, and I loved to watch the planes flying in the sky. I thought (until I was 9) that the jet trail behind the planes was actually where the planes were scratching the sky. When I started learning about the earth's atmoshpere in school I figured out the sky wasn't flat after all, but I still think about plans scratching the sky when I see one.
When I was about 7 year old, I used to believe that stars were actually made of glass and could break if meteor hit them. Then one night I found a piece of clear plastic just behind my home door, and I was absolutely sure that I had just found a piece of a star...The piece was included to my "treasure chest" for a long time but I lost it at some point.
A billboard sign read: Moonshine kills.
I thought being caught outside by the moon would kill me. Humph.
The moon was actually either a sugar cookie or a banana, depending on the time of the month.
I thought that if I could ever travel into outer space, I would take a pair of pliers with me, to collect stars. Mommy did say they were too hot to touch.
When I was 5 I use to believe that Raggedy Ann and Andy lived on the moon.
I used to beleive that the moon was earth and I could never understand how we could be standing on earth and also be seeing the earth in the sky. I was just a little confused. =) age 3-6
When I was about 4 or 5 or so, on the way back home from school, I'd quite often stare at the sun for ages, because I thought it was a hole in the sky (if you really stare at it, it looks that way). I was a stupid child in some respects, and I wear glasses to this day - I'll probably always wonder if the two things are linked.
I used to believe that when you wished upon a star ... your wish would come true. Like one time I wished for a "My little pony" . The next morning I was sad to find my wish hadnt come true .
When I was younger I used to believe that spinning a globe is what caused the earth to spin. I was always very cautious not to let myself of anyone make it spin too fast- otherwise we'd all get dizzy and maybe fall off. I guess I had a lot of faith that no one else was spinning their globe too fast either!
