When I was little, I noticed that when the other person hung up, there would be a series of beeping sounds followed by a whine. I'd freak out because I thought that meant the phone would explode if I didn't put it back onto the receiver pronto.

In french, water is "eau" and bone is "os".

And theirs words are pronounced the same way.

So I used to believe when a woman's waters break it was actually her bones !

When I said it to my mother, she laughted and... I cried.

Actually, I think I was a special little boy.

I used to believe that magnetism could "rub off" on you, like dirt or a smell. Like, if you touched a magnet with your bare hands, you'd get magnetism on you. And then, if you put your fingers in your mouth without washing them, you could swallow the magnetism and it would close up your intestines.

To this day, I still feel uncomfortable touching magnets!

As a kid, I once tried to named as many colors as I could, and I got 21. For some reason, I was convinced there are exactly 4 more colors. I even "discovered" them later, except I still didn't know what they looked like.

I used to believe that in order to top up a mobile phone you had to open the back and put actual bank notes or coins in it, and I thought that as you were calling or texting someone there was a little mouth in the phone that sucked up all the money.

I used to think that all chemicals were orange liquids, and that a chemistry lab would have a load of test tubes in it all filled with the same coloured substances. I don't know what I thought solids, gases and non-orange liquids were supposed to be!
