I used to believe that walking around the local streets in a certain order would bring me out at the seaside which was 70 miles away. Never did find the correct order...
When i was on holiday with my mum and her boyfriend and his son (same age as me). They convinced me that the lift only went up...i then spent the rest of the week walking down flights of stairs and wondering how we would get the suitcases down......IM 15 !
When I was a kid of about 6 n half years old I used to believe that the Guards at the Tombs and Mausolem were made of Plastic

When our family would go on trips to see Grandma, my sister looked out at the other cars on the freeway and said ,"Mommy, look, everyone is going to see Grandma, too!" It was so cute!
I used to believe that the people in ferris wheels went upside down at the top. I was too scared to go on one for that reason
My half-brother (who is much older than me) told me, when we went to McDonald's, that the red light on the ventilation shaft was a camera and that if I didn't finish my Happy Meal before I played with the toy someone would come out and get me.
When I was 5 there was a shooting at a Mcdonalds in California. I heard it on TV. I didn't realize someone actually shoots the gun and I thought the guns came out of the lights in the ceiling at Mcdonalds and killed people. I cried everytime my mom wanted to take me there.
For the longest time I used to believe that the male ballet dancers were naked from the waist down.
Whenever we were on a log ride I always thought that there was no track that led down the highest drop and you were free falling for about 50 feet or so. I was always really scared thinking we would turn over and either fall into the water or fly out and hit something hard and die a painful death.
Being little and trying to entertain me constantly, my parents took me to the local movie theater alot. Inside, the walls had poofy curtain-like things on them. I had always thought that lions in cages were behind them ready to eat me if I talked during the movie. I was fairly imaginative as a kid.
Once, I sat behind a neon sign in a restaurant. It said "Fallon" on the back, which is the name of the company that makes the neon signs. I didn't know the name Fallon, so I thought it was pronounced "Fall on" and that it meant the sign would "fall on" your head.
My parents told me that the woman in any picture in a restaurant was "The Mademosielle," and the Mademoiselle ate children who misbehaved. If we were ever at a resturaunt and heard a child crying, my parents told me it was because the Mademoiselle was eating them. Needless to say, I was always very well-behaved at the dinner table.
You know those British soldiers with the red coats and big fuzzy hats who have to stand perfectly still? I used to believe that if they moved while on duty, the Queen would chop their heads off.
I used to think that the To Let sign was Toilet with the I missing. I used to think "my, they're big toilets"!

For a very very long time I believed that somewhere there was a small man whose job was to catch the bowling ball, restack all of the bowling pins in that triangle once you knocked them down, and then throw the ball back to you on the ramp.
Every July 4th my town has a popular fireworks display. The fireworks are shot off from a big hill on the other side of a channel of water running through to Lake Michigan. When i was young, i was at a party and i think someone who was drunk told me that Benjamin Franklin and George Washington and Abraham Lincoln were behind the hill shooting off the fireworks every year. If that wasn't an all-American lie! I wondered why no one ever made a big deal about it.
My family used to go to Asian restaurants a lot, and I always believed the fortunes would come true! So I saved them all and stored them in a cigarrete compartment in our car (no one in my family smokes). That way, when I really needed luck, I could pull one out! I forgot to take them out later, so whoever bought our car must have been pretty surprised...
I always wanted to go to Disney World when I was a kid - and I was so sure this road right up the street from me was the way to Disney World. When we finally ended up going to Disney World, of course, I couldn't figure out why we didn't take that road, and why it took so long to get there... (I live in Ohio!)
When I was little and we'd drive home at night from a family member's house or supper, I always thought the moon was following our car.
