My dad works at the electric power station as an engineer. Whenever there was a power outage I would ask and quarrel with him why he cut off the electricity while I was home.

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.

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.

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.

Growing up a Detroit Tigers fan, I thought that all alkaline batteries were being endorsed by Tiger Hall of Famer: Al Kaline. A-L K-A-L-I-N-E due to his power and the batteries being powerful also!

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.

When I was much younger, I was convinced that if you highlighted text on someone's webpage and hit 'Backspace,' it would delete the entire thing.

I was terrified at the power I had in my hands that no one else seemed to realize...
