As a child, I used to believe that at the time of Black and White films, everything was black and white outside and when I was born I brought color. It took me a while to realise when my dad said "You brange life into color" He didn't mean it literally.

I used to believe that color was an invention; roughly around 1955 or so. The world prior to the invention of color was black and white (of course). The rationale was that all old movies and television shows were in black and white, and therefore, color had not been invented yet.

hey i used to believe that because tv was in black in white before the 60s, i thought the world was black in white before then. i believed someone dropped a can of paint and it created colours and the world as we knew it was created... i was very young at the time!

When I was about 2-5 I used to believe that color didn't always exist. That someone actually invented color. I had all the proof, pictures of my grandparents and baby pictures of my parents were in black and white, old movies were in black and white.

I used to believe that the world was black/white/grey before. Because that's how it looked like on old movies : )

I still have a hard time imagining a historical event in color. When I think about world war 2 or earlier, I always picture it im my head in black and white even though I know better

i believed that people and the world in the olden days were really black and white and that that was why my grandmother was pale and had white hair and why my mum dyed her hair and wore makeup because she was black and white to and she wanted to pretend she was younger. hmmmmmmmm so that why children shouldn't be made to watch old movies with their grandparent

When I was about six years old, I loved watching black-and-white t.v. shows. But because I watched them, I thought that life when there was only black and white t.v. was actualy black and white!

I thought that everything in the world was black and white until color was "invented". I didn't know it was only referring to tv.

I used to think that New York was only black and white, but every other place had colors because i was watching a movie one time about New York and it was only in black and white so I thought that it was really oonly black and white.....

I used to think that everything, as in all the people and the world and everything - was in black and white. According to me at 5 years old, there was no color 'in the good old days'. Those black and white photos and television programs of the olden days can be very misleading for a little kiddy. XD

Until I was maybe 12, I thought that the world used to exist "in black and white" like old movies / photos. When I was ~6 or so, I asked a friend's mom about my theory and she actually told me my theory was right.
