i used to belive that early laserdiscs would play my vinyl records and show the movie - i wanted to put my star wars soundtrack record in the slot and watch the movie
You know how your voice sounds much different on a tape recorder? I used to believe that if I recorded my voice onto a tape, listened to the recording and mimicked the sound, when I recorded that it would end up sounding like I thought I sounded all the time.
I used to believe that "dead" batteries were once alive, and so when my parents would try to throw them away, I would cry and insist that they get a proper funeral.
From the age of about eight to ten I was convinced I could make 'Black light' by combining the beams from two torches - if only I could get them lined up right. Then I'd be rich. Oh yes. Well, I'm filthy rich now but still haven't cracked battery operated darkness.
I used to think that when you put in a video, the people in it had to really quickly run and start acting it again.

I once had a cheap radio and a pair of walkie-talkies, and somehow managed to convince myself that if I touched the radio aerial with the walkie-talkie aerial, I could transmit on the same frequency as the radio station, and shout over the top of the presenter's voice at everyone who was currently listening to that station. Something to do with frequencies and tuning forks at school, probably. *Sigh* If only it was that simple...
