When I was younger I always wanted to be kidnapped because I KNEW that the kidnapper would fall in love and change his mind and we would live happily ever after.

When a person goes to jail, I thought that "jail" meant "hell" and they would spent 1-2 years burning in agony.

when i was litte, like 7 or so, i would always put my money away in a certain way, i would but the higher bills on the very bottom then the lowers bills then i'd cover it with quarters and then dimes and then nickles and then pennies, that way if someone came in through my money looking to steel my money they would think that i didn't have that much since they couldn't see it

When I was very little I thought that there was a serial killer in England who would kill children. Reason? I thought that if you yelled into the vetalation (sp?) system loud enough, people in England could hear you and would answer back, but all they ever said was "bloody child" (My loving parents). The next year, we went to Britain for our summer holidays, and I was convinced my parents had made a deal with the killer. Did I mention the killer was named "Jack the Tripper" ? I got three's company and Jack the Ripper mixed up. (Don't ask me how I knew about the 1800's serial killer when I was 5.

I used to think that it was not legal to dring ANYTHING (like a Coke® or something like it) and drive, since drinking and driving was against the law!

When I was around 10-12 years old, my best friend [who is also my cousin] let me know what rape was when I asked. She said "rape is when you grab a person by the sleeve of their shirt and make them have sex with you." i said "they have to grab your sleeve?" and she said "yes! they must grab the sleeve or else it's not really rape." ahahhahahhahahahhhahhahahhahahhahhahahhhahahahhhahahahaha. i find it funny when i think of how i believed that.

I too thought that rape was when a man came up to a woman on the street & tore off all her clothes. I had a good reason for believing that, though -- it was what my Mum told me when I asked her what "rape" meant. To this day, I still have that image when I hear the word, even though I now,unfortunately, know better.

My mother left me in the car while she quickly went into a store. I noticed posted on the shop-window "Help Wanted". I immediately became terrified for my life, figuring they needed help to find a wanted criminal in the area.

I used to think that rape was when you took off someone's clothes, but usually only the shirt and shoes. How wrong I was.

I remember one time (think i was about 5) my mom told me it was illegal to pick California poppies. So some time afterwards when I was on a field-trip at school there was a field with a bunch of California poppies and I was really scared to go near them because I thought if I stepped on one or one went missing (like they count them everyday :) They would d think I did it and I would go to jail
