Once a friend of mine and I tried to figure out scientifically why every time we walked in front of a radio a certain way that it just made static noises. I believe we concluded that we were absorbing the radio waves.

At the time i was in like, kindergarten. one day one of my feriends told me that somehow, watches got powered by sucking the power out of diamonds. i was amazed at this fact until about 8 years old saw my dad replacing a battery from his watch.
I used to believe that if you have a DNA gun, you could change anything into something else(desks to sand, people to rocks, etc.) and i told all my friends about it all the time. most of them believed me too. i was only in 2nd grade though, so noone else knew that wasnt true.

I used to think, if you bought a blank audio tape, you could write the name of whatever music you wanted on the label and it would automatically appear on that tape.
In the early days of the internet, the first time my computer gave me the now ubiquitous error message "This program has performed an illegal operation and will be shut down" I was honestly scared. I immediately logged off, shut off the machine, and went to the window to see if the cops were coming to arrest me for trying to find help for my math homework.
I used to believe that there was a little goblin band inside my mums stereo and they played music whenever she turned it on.

I thought that if you listen to a cassette tape, the band is inside the player, playing just for you. I used to play it NON-STOP. JUST REWIND AND START OVER. I swear I thought that I could hear the tiredness in their voice.
I use to a believe that musicians lived inside my cassette tapes. I would play them over and over and after a while I would think the musicians were tired so I would give them a break and then play the tape again later.

I thought the RCA dog was in all microphones....Yeah..weird huh... One time at church I asked my dad how microphones worked and he said there was a little dog in there that moved up and down and it made noises louder. I instantly pictured the dog on RCA records sitting buy that big horn looking phonograph thing and thought he was in all microphones. I found out years later that my dad (from the old'n days) used the word dog to decribe many little parts he didnt understand or know better how to describe...
A friend of ours, and his brother were once told by their dad that the tv remote didn't use batteries and instead had a pizo electric system in it, and were told that to make the remote work they had to shake it up and down.
After three months of this their dad replaced the batteries in front of them and they realised how stupid they were.
they weren't young, 22 and 20 :)
