Once I went to to the circus to see a gigantic (about 4 metres) mechanical King Kong it really scared me, (as I have watched the movie before) so up until I was 7, I used to believe that the exhibition antiaerial guns outside the ministry of defense were to shot down King Kong, in case he ever cut loose from the circus.

My mother was under the belief for ages that if you went into Arcades by the sea or whatever, there were big men in there who would inject you with heroin, and you would become an addict. What a nice thing to be told by your mother...

My dad and I used to go to the library. On the side of the library was a big yellow sign that said "Fallout Shelter." I asked my dad what that was, and he said it was a place to go in case there was a bomb. I remember being really worried because I knew I could fit behind that little sign, but I didn't think my dad could.

Later it morphed into the idea that there was a tunnel leading from the shelter to the street that came out right behind the sign, and the sign was about 15 feet above the ground, so when you left the shelter you would just 'fall out.'

In some restaurants, the waiter takes your order, puts his piece of paper in a little lift and it goes up or down to the kitchen where they cook it and then put it in the same lift for the waiter to take out and bring to you. I used to think the lift read what was on that piece of paper and, as if by magic, turned it into the food you had ordered.

my dad was a member of the lions club (a community servive group) and whenever he went to a meeting i thought him and a bunch of other dads were all in a big circus style ring with whips training lions. i told lots of other kids because i thought he was very brave.

When I was a kid I cried every time my mother said she was taking us to Applebees because I thought that all their food was made from apples and I didnt want to eat there.

When I was three and went to Sea World for the first time, I wasn't going to see Baby Shamu. I was going to see "Baby Shampoo!"

there was a virtual ride at epcot when i was little. on the ride they "shrunk" you and you and you went inside the human body to try and find the problem for the doctors to help them solve it. well my dad told me that we were actually going to be shrunk and i of course believed him, and would not go on the ride.

When I was little, I went on vacation with my mom to a very far away place (about 400 miles, it seemed very far at the time). My mom and I would drive there and I used to believe that in order to drive anywhere, you had to learn and memorize all the maps at school and it sounded like an enormous task. Little did I know about folding paper maps and especially road signs...

When I was 5, our small town brought in a new PizzaHut to modernize the place. I had never heard of it before, but after I ate there I told all my friends and family about this amazing 'Pizza Hot' restaurant. My parents kept telling me it was in fact called 'PizzaHut', not 'Pizza Hot'. I always got mad at them because it only made sense that pizza was served 'hot'. It didn't make any sense the other way. Whenever we'd eat there I would silently stew about how my parents didn't know anything about pizza. I was convinced that I must be smarter than them.
It was only until after I learned to spell that year that I found out otherwise.

When I was little sometimes we drove by power plants. They had all kinds of ropes and blocks and I was certain they must be playgrounds. So one time we went by one and I asked my mom "do we have time to stop and play at the playground?" She still likes to remind me...

I used to believe that plays were totally improv, and that people from random places around the room could just run on stage at any given time and take part.

Whenever my family went to restaurants, I always saw my dad put his credit card with the bill and watched the waitress take it away. By the time it came back I must have never been paying attention, because for the longest time I thought they had to mail the card back to my dad before he could use it again, and that my parents were just slow to leave the restaurant.

When I was just about two or three years old, at restaurants I would always want to get down on the floor, but my parents told me that the floor was hot and I would burn my feet.

When i was younger, i used to drive down this road which had a sign that read "hidden drive." when referring to this road, i called it "hidden drive rd" for the longest time until i learned the real name.
