I used to believe that there were lots of hamsters in the wheels of the car, and that's what made it go.

When I was told a friend’s e-mail address to write down, I even spelled out “underscore” instead of putting “_”. lol

When I was young I believed that my playstation wouldn't start a game unless I held the controller and put my energy into starting the game.

I thought the controllers had sensors that said hoy much you were trying to start the game and if you weren't trying hard enough the game wouldn't start.

I used to believe that email addresses were real websites, so when I was 5 and my friend's mom gave me her email in case, I typed it in and got really mad because nothing poped up.

When I was twelve I thought that if I took a diamond (it was a very SMALL diamond by the way) and somehow be able to fix it on top of the hole on my rocket launcher toy, I would be able to construct a powerful signal beam.

Yeeeeeeeeeeeah, what?

I used to believe a nuclear bomb was powerful enough that it would actually split the world into tiny pieces that would float around the solar system. Needless to say, once I found out about its capabilities (less powerful than what I originally believed), nuclear attack has never really worried me as much as other people.

One day my dad was making me and my younger sister breakfast, when we were very young. We asked him how the toaster worked, and our dad (i suspect now rather than admitting he didnt KNOW how the toaster worked, being a drama teacher and not a scientist) told us that a little man lived inside the toaster. His name was Mr. Frosty, and he had a special trident with a red-hot tip to cook the bread. We got obsessed with Mr Frosty and every morning (mystifying our mum) the three of us (Dad, Me and sister) would look intently into the toaster and say a polite 'good morning' to mr Frosty. My sister and I also used to receive little letters on tiny scraps of pink paper from mr Frosty, thanking us for keeping him in business with all the toast we ate.

When I was young I saw my Dad's Popular Science magazines and they would talk about the "Internet Super Highway" that was coming. I thought it sounded way cool. I assumed we'd all be literally surfing on a crazy highway in the sky.

Just now I was watching "How it's Made" on the Discovery Channel while browsing the internet at the same time, and I wasn't really paying attention when they said the item they were making, then I took a break and started watching again, and they had these little pins, and they were talking about elephants. I thought they were making little carvings of elephants on the top of pins (I read about it in a book once), but then they started putting the pins in a circuit board. I got confused, but then I listened more closely and I heard they said ELEMENTS.

when i was about ten or eleven i would go on chats a lot to talk with friends. i knew people can see you sometimes cause i had watched my mom chatting before, but i didnt understand that you had to have a webcam in order to do that. so everytime i would chat, i would dress up my best and make sure i didnt do anything to embarrass myself and i would sit next to my barbies so all the girls would think i was "cool" for having so many.

Once when I was six my computer wasn't working propalely and my dad said it had computer virus. Then I got really worried because I thought I might catch the virus off it and freeze up. It wasn't 'til a couple of years later that I found out you can't catch a virus from computer.

when I was younger, I used to think that CD's had the artists inside of it and whatever song you picked they would have to perform it. I was obsessed with the spice girls, but felt mean if I made them play a song too many times, I barelly listened to their CD's. But I hated the backstreet boys so I played 1 song over and over just to make them get worn out. I was a little cookoo.
