There was a road named "Napp road" and i thought that there were a lot of kidnappings there so i would always crawl on the floor when we had to drive on that road

I used to believe that the large telephone pole outside my bathroom window was where Jesus lived. The Cross at the top I think is what led me to think this. I would pray to that pole everyday..does that count as a false Idol?

I live in a place called Catlett. I used to believe it was called that because there were so many cats roaming around.
Additionally, there's lots of those neighborhood watch signs around, and I thought the criminal guy on them was a cat, so I figured that was special just for us.

There's this street near where I live called Fuqua (pronounced fyu-KWAY). My sister thought it was called FUCK-wa for the longest time.

When I was little I loved playing in the park near my house, but when it was time to go home I never wanted to leave, so my mother told me that the park was going to close. When I heard that I pictured a giant glass dome falling from the sky trapping kids who stayed in the park for too long for eternity. I would run for my life when she told me the park was closing!

have you ever seen the signs about neighbourhood watch with a guy on it in a trenchcoat with a hat on that was completely black(not African American black) and you could only see his eyes?I used to think there was a guy like that in our neighbourhood.

When I was a kid I thought that the neighborhood watch sign (of the black figure with a trench coat and hat, saying keep out) was actually a picture of a cat. I thought it was saying that the neighbors should not have any cats because there were too many dogs in the neighborhood.

When I was little I asked my mom how the lights changed at a stop light. For some reason, she told me that there were "little green men" in the boxes on the pole that worked there. I told her this recently and she said she doesn't remember when or why she would ever tell me this...we laugh about it all the time now!

me and my friends used to believe that my neighborhood had a bad guy lurking about and that he was going to steal me and my friends' bikes and toys that we left outside at night, so we created a secret agent group where we would run through parks and back yards looking for mischevous characters. i'm sure we were the only mischevous looking things around.

When I rode my bicycle my mother always told me to eb careful of strangers. I didn't know what the word "stranger" meant, and I thought that strangers were the maintenance men who worked in my apartment development. Anytime I'd ride past the boiler room doors past a building (where the maintenance men kept their supplies), I'd go really fast in case one of them was there and tried to catch me.

There is a huge factory (which I now know is owned by Sunoco) next to the highway. Whenever we would drive by my mom would tell us that's where Batman lived. For years I thought Batman really lived there. Weird thing is, in all the movies he lives in a HUGE house, yet I still believed he lived in a huge pipe filled factory that shot out fire.

For some reason unknown to me, whenever I would walk down the street I would make sure that whoever I was walking with (usually my dad), would stay on the same sides of objects as me, such as signposts and mailboxes, I was convinced that if we passed such objects on different sides, I would dissapear from on the other side to my dad and go into another world exactly like ours so I would never know the difference.

I used to think that radio towers that have the huge white satellite round things was where the band would play from and the drummers would drum on the satellites(they looked like drums)

When I was a kid, a local window blind company's dellivery trucks had a sign on the back that read, "Careful, blind man driving." I thought they were so kind to hire the handicapped!

I used to believe that there was a mansion in my neighbor's backyard. They had about an acre of woods, and the noises I thought were coming from 'the mansion' were really coming from some apartments behind their land. I don't even know where that idea came from! :-p
