I used to belive that the city and all it's modern things were done by God. So, when I asked my mom what was all that of AGES about, she explained me that soscietey had evolved, and that actually God only made the earth, but not the cars or buldings, or TV, or toys.

When she was five, my niece believed that in the "olden days" folks had all the stuff you saw in movies - horses and carts etc - but that they also had TVs and computers. Maybe she believed that the movies of the past were docos and so they had to have TVs in order to film the movie?

I remember having a heated argument with my family, contending that the declaration of independence was signed in 1767.

When I was about six or maybe seven or eight I had started to learn about slavery and for some reason I thought that around the year 1995 there would be an uprising of racists that would bring slavery back and that me and my mother would be made slaves and she would get beaten all of the time or maybe even killed and then I would be all alone and then I would get beaten. These thoughts plauged me until I learned about the Constitution.

My friend used to wonder where the actual past would go -like what would happen to the past of a car driving down a highway? It still makes me think...

When my sister and I were little, there was a stretch of road where a section of a hill had been blown away. The hill was somewhat rough because the hill was recently blown up, very steep and made of loose dirt so not much could grow.

One day my sister asked why the hill looked like that and I replied because the last battle of the civil war blew apart the hill and to remember the battle, the road was built.

My sister believed that until she studied the civil war. Her teacher asked where the last battle of the civil war took place and she replied 'Ohio near 270'. Her teacher had a hard time convincing her otherwise.

We still laugh about that today, I'm 22 and she's 20.

I read a lot of encyclopedias and pop history books when I was in elementary school. My reading skills must have been a bit off because I took references to "Stone Age Tribes" in these books the literal truth and that the Stone Age was out there somewhere today.

I also misunderstood stories about human sacrifices and the eruption of Vesuvius and thought that somehow there was a way to revisit these events every day.

My Dad told me various myths, the most memorable being that Harold Lloyd (black-and-white-movie star) had a wooden arm. He also told me that Roy Orbison was black and blind - he's neither.

When I was four, I thought George Washington was the current president and Abraham Lincoln was the vice president, because their pictures were up on the wall at daycare for President's Day. I remember having a heated argument with my mother when she tried to tell me that Ronald Reagan was the president.

When I was little, I used to belive that the world just appeared the way it was. I thought the world was created with cars littering the highway, a president, and a guy returning clothes to Old Navy.

When I was young, my parents used to make me go to bed early. Back then we read a lot of old books, like Dickens, and somehow I always figured that people back in the past used to go to bed early, too. Even today, I get a little jolt of surprise when I read old novels and the characters are clearly up after 10 pm or so.
