I used to believe that the water in water fountains kept being reused, and I was drinking other peoples spit everytime I drank at the water fountain.

I used to believe that there were porta pottys under the ocean for the fish to use. I thought they waited in line and when it was thier turn, they would swim in and swim out.

i used to believe that the sky was the bottom of the ocean, and we were at the bottom looking up, and that if you got the bottom of the actual ocean you'd fall out of the "sky"

We lived near a lake when I was a boy. My older brothers, who all swam well, told my younger brother and me that there was a sandbar in the middle of the lake, and that it was where all the snapping turtles lived. They said if I ever tried to swim across the lake and tried to stand up on the sandbar, or even let my kicking feet get near the bottom, the snapping turtles would bite onto me, would never let go, and I would drown.

A few years later, when I finally figured I was strong enough to swim across the lake, I nearly panicked when I got tired near the middle. I'm so glad I learned the elementary backstroke in the Scouts! I wouldn't let myself stop, made it all the way across, and all the way back.

To this day, I still have a irrational fear (though one I can get past) of being bitten by a snapping turtle when I'm wading or swimming in lakes and rivers (and I'm 39)!

I used to believe that helicopters dropped salt in the ocean to make it salt.

I used to think that the waterfalls from the mountains above where I lived were from trolls standing on the edge of the mountains peeing. There were tiny ones from the children trolls,but also real giants were peeing high above me.

When I was about 7 years old I had asked my mother why the water in water coolers was cold. She told me it was spring water, and spring water is cold naturally. As I grew up I found out it is because of a cooling compressor in the water cooler. But my Mom stills thinks she is right.

When I was about 8 or 9 I asked my father why I couldn't drink sea water. "Because it is salty", he replied. To which I, as any child of my age would do, asked "why is the sea salty?".
His answer was as follows: "The sea is salty because there was a giant who was way out at sea having dinner when he knocked the salt off his table into the sea, and made the sea salty."
To me, this made perfect sence as a child, and of course satisified my insatiable curiosity.
When I was at school I, intent on demonstrating my new found knowledge, proudly told the other children why the sea was salty, and much to my dismay they laughed at me.....but, I was still positive for a few years later that there was a giant out there waiting for his dessert.

I used to beleive when I was younger that the reason the water did'nt fall out of the oceans when the earth "turned" was because all of the oceans were covered in seran wrap, but it was a sepical kind that only you could see from space, so thats why you could still go swimming.

When I was about five years old, I've asked my dad why is the sea so salty. He told me it's because a huge tanker full of salt turned over in the water. I believed that :-)

when I was young, I used to believe that if I jumped into a deep puddle, I would jump all the way down to Australia...I think it was mum's way of deterring me from jumping in the puddles in the first place :D

I thought if you stayed in the water (pool, shower, bath etc) too long your hair would turn red like Ariel's from The Little Mermaid.
