Before learning about the Cold War, I thought that the space race was actually two spaceships, one from America amd one from Russia, that launched at the same time to see which one would get to the moon fastest.
I used to believe that Clint Eastwood actually lived in the old west, but I also knew that he was still alive in the present day (this was around 2009 or so), so you can imagine how old he must've been if that was the case. I probably believed this because the main place I learned about him from was Back to the Future.
I used to believe the Wall Street Crash of 1929 was a literal car crashing into a bank.
I thought “guerrilla tactics” meant fighting like a gorilla— beating your chest and that sort of thing.
I thought the Civil War was between North America and South America. It was only when I was asking my mother how the "north" could blockade the "south" when there was just so much available coastline that I figured out what was wrong
I used to believe that at the time of film in black & white, people lived without color. At the start, I thought there was any color, so they can't differenciate the color between food, clothes or even hair.
I think it was weird to see movies in black & white but live in color. Now I know that they didn't live in black & white and juste didn't have the technique in the 20th Century.
when I was little girl, I used to believe that at the time of black and white pictures, people lived without color, I discovered the cameras that were doing
black and white photos thanks to my grandmother,I didn't believe in this story and the life is cool with the color !
I thought parents only said, "Go to your room!" in the 1950s.
I thought Nazis were actually "not-sees" and called that because they could turn invisible, which I figured was why they were so dangerous
I also believed that guerrilla warfare was against real gorillas during the Vietnam war! This was also the time that the Planet of the Apes movies came out which just reinforced that belief!
