I used to believe that at the beach town where we spent the summer, they took the sidewalks in for the winter.

I was just browsing the site, and came upon an interesting discovery. I just found out about two minutes ago, from a belief posted here, that fire trucks actually don't carry the water inside of them. And I'm 19.
Now that is seriously sad!

I used to think a shark could swim up the pool drain and gobble me up. The drain wasn't even 8 inches wide.

When I was little, we use to live on a corner and my older brother and sister used to tell me to go work the corner. I actually thought it meant work on the corner, so I would get my little nail kit and go out there and work until my mom would come home and yell at them for having me out there again. Siblings can be so cruel!

This was not a belief of mine but of a friend who lives in Budapest. There are several bridges over the river Danube and one of them is followed by a tunnel. My friend believed that the tunnel is there so that people can push the bridge into it in the evenings, else someone would steal it at night.

I thought thyat the big bags of laundry that I would see on the tops of trucks [I think the company was National] was money, like the armoured cars, and if they fell off, you cuold keep it.

Driving in the car one evening I asked my mom what the towers with the lights on them were for. She told me it was so low flying planes wouldn't run into them. I couldn't figure out why anyone would build a tower just so planes won't run into it. Later I learned they were radio towers, the lights were to warn the planes. Thanks for listening to the question Mom.

When I was real young, I believed EVERYONE had an apple tree...as at every house we lived at, we had one in our backyard. My brother informed me otherwise when I was 5.

When I was younger I used to think that a fire truck carried the water inside it. I was wondering why the water never ran out because the truck never looked that big.

When I was a child, I used to belief bridges were actually part of a separate road system that only the rich people could drive on.

When my dad would get mad at me for being bad, he would tell me he was going to throw me in the garbage and let the garbage man take me away. Every Monday morning I would hide when I heard them coming.

Because I grew up with the cartoon "Transformers," I always thought that, when it stormed, the transformer box behind my house would turn into a huge monster machine. I would keep an eye on it, peeking timidly out the back window.

When I was read the nursery rhyme about the old woman who lived in the shoe, I pictured a house-sized building that was shaped like a shoe. Many buildings in the city where I grew up had strange shapes, so it didn't seem unusual to me at all. I also thought the shoe-house would be fun to visit someday.

When I was little I used to think that if you wanted to move house you had to find someone that wanted to swap their house with yours.

I used to believe that you were supposed to ride your bike in between the double yellow lines in the middle of the road. It seemed like just the perfect size for a bike tire, even though I had never seen anyone riding there. For some reason I never actually rode there, even though I felt I should be.

Where did that come from?

I used to believe that dirt roads just needed to be swept (to reveal the pavement underneath).

When I was a kid, my parents never used to go to Chevron gas stations. So for some reasons, I always associated them with making "gas" medicines such as Kaopectate.

I lived in the same house until I was twenty, so I wasn't familiar with the process of moving. I used to believe that people who moved had to swap houses with each other. It amazed me that so many people wanted each others houses!
