When I was younger, I had a firm belief that if I ever fell from a high place (i.e. a cliff, skyscraper, etc.) I could simply grab on to something during my fall, or jump off of something right before I hit the ground.

I used to believe that if you dropped a coin on a table and gulped in the air as it fell, that you would be swallowing 'energy' and that this would make you energetic. This is because I had seen a children's science programme on television which said something about energy being 'released' if you dropped a coin.

I spent many frustrating hours believing that if i tried hard enough I could lift myself off the ground with no means of support. I also thought if a lift was plummeting down a shaft you would be perfectly alright if you gave a little jump just before it hit the floor.

I just found out that when I told my son (years ago) that windmills made the wind (they only work when it's windy!), he believed me up until now.

i used to think that if you disconnected your speakers while playing music, the noise would build up inside the wires like water at a dam, and when you plugged them back in the built up sound would all come out at once like a flood.

I remember my first science based thought was based on a survival scenario. If you are a small boat going over a waterfall then you need to crawl to the back, grab hold of the boat and just before you hit the water you jump from the boat. Thus saving yourself from a 100ft fall by making a three foot jump. Ta da.

My dad told me to work out how to achieve perpetual motion and so I used to try and for ages he just said I must be doing it wrong until one day I realised.
