A college guy went around telling people if you peed in the pool or drank the water your hair would turn green. I misunderstood this as all water. One day I had to pee and was in the ocean at the time so I just went. When I realized what I had just done I kept looking in the mirror all day expecting see my hair turning green. I told my mother and she told me not to worry, that everything pees in the ocean

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.

Living on the Somerset coast, we can see the south coast of Wales. I used to believe when the tide went out it was in over in Wales. I was always jealous as they seemed to have it much more often than us...

My dad used to tell me and my sisters that there was a giant plughole in the harbour, and that there was no water there at certain times of day because someone had pulled the plug out. ...For years I looked for that plug every time we drove past!

Until very recently, I believed that waterwheels on the sides of mills were there to move the water along in the river.

When I was little I used to think that the salt water in the ocean was sand water with no salt. I used to think that people called it salt water because the sand looked like salt.

I used to think that mud puddle water would taste like chocolate milk. That's what my big sister told me. She also made me get down on my hands and knees and try it. Shock and disillusionment...and a gritty aftertaste!

I was told that if I ever drank puddle water from the driveway I would get polio and have to live in an iron lung.

On one particular visit with my grandparents, when I was very young, I remember playing on the living room floor and finding a little piece of clear plastic that had apparently broken off of something. I was very excited, however, and ran into the kitchen where the adults were so I could show them the piece of "dry water" I had found. They kidded me about that for years...hey, it made sense at the time.

I met an ex-girlfriend and we went for a walk along the seafront, the sea was really rough. Anyway, I spoke to her a week later and told her that the sea was so rough that even fish were drowning, it was on the news. She believed me, bless her.

As a small child a thought the world was a large ball of water, with only a crust of land around it. I didn't understand why, if I stood near the edge of the sea or a river, the ground didn't cave in underneath me because it was too thin!

Once my mom put a cup of iced water on the table. Due to a process that we all know now, there was some water around and under the cup. My four-year-old sister pointed to it and said," Mum! the cup's melting!"

When my daughter was 4 years old, she watched a tv show on the volcanos of Hawaii. They showed the lava, or "lavie", flowing into the ocean. For about 6 months after that she was convinced that "lavie" would come out of the hot water fawcet when ever she turned it on...

I thought that all the Rivers were numbered (in the way roads are) - as I knew about the River Seven, Tens and Fourth (Severn, Thames and Forth)
