When I was a kid, I used to think that when I breathed in air, I was breathing in some of the same molecules that had been breathed by famous people in history. Like Moses, Jesus, Einstein. As an adult, I found out that this is actually true; I read a book by Carl Sagan that said that, statistcally speaking, with every breath we breath in some of the air molecules of famous historical figures that have lived and breathed in the past! Who knew?

When I was in elementary school, probably 1st grade, we learned about the Underground railroad and Harriet Tubman and they played a tape with a song and they played the song over and over, so after hearing the song I believed that the underground railroad was underground and at night the slaves would go underneath the ground through these secret caves where there were railroad tracks and they would walk across the railroad, holding lanterns so they could see underground.

When I was a child, elder people used to tell us tales like "dakdeer dimatoy dulki nabadye" means; long ear died and the land is in peace". we used to get scare of long ear if we stays long out side at night without our parents or some one older...they used to tell us that long ear use to steal cheeps and eat them...when we grow old we realized that long ear never existed. this tale was made of just to keep us close to our home or to scare us in order to sleep earlier at night...

When i was little i thought the mathamatican Archimedes, was named arquimedes because when i watched the movie sword in the stone i thought that's what they said.

My sister is three years older, so i always asked her questions. When i was seven and she was ten, she learned about Pangea. I asked her to tell me about it and she said that the world was one piece of land and then it seperated into what we know today. So i thought that the earth was just a small ball of sand adn then it seperated and water just magically appeared.

Asterix was one of my favorite comics. One historical character there is Julius Caesar, however as I didn't not know how to pronouce his name then (was still a kid), I thought his name was Julius Casper, as that was the closest name I knew that started with 'C'. Was probably in high school until I discovered otherwise.

In the late 1980s, I learned in school that President Reagan was nearly assassinated in 1981. I asked my father later that day, "Did you know that the President was shot?"
I should have realized that when someone tries to kill the President, even when it is a failed assassination attempt, it is a major news story that people will remember for years. I should have asked him, "What was it like after the President was shot?"
