I used to believe that everybody spoke English in the world
I used to believe that a ballot is just a blank piece of paper where you write the name of who you vote for in giant letters.
I used to think that paying someone's bail means you pay to get them out of prison forever. Like even if you were sentenced to life in prison you could buy your way out.
I thought that the world belonged to the president and could do anything he wanted. I always wanted to become the president so I could have the whole world to myself
This is quite similar to the belief about gunpoint being a physical place, but when I first heard about certain items being sold "on the black market" on the news one day, I believed that the black market was an actual place. I imagined it to be a famous and popular marketplace somewhere in the world, just like any other market in a big city. When I found out that it was used to sell many illegal items I asked my mother why the police didn't just go there and shut it down, since everyone knew which city it was in.
One of my classmates in kindergarten told me that Germans were filthy people and that Germany was a place filled with germs and you can get sick if you come in contact with a German. I believed this for a very long time and started to be scared of other people, because they might be german and i didn't want to get sick!
I used to believe that Germans were Nazis and liked Nazi related things. So one time in 2nd grade i drew a picture of her wearing a swastika shirt and showed it to my teacher(who is German). I didn't know why she was so mad when i showed it, i thought that she would like it because she was German. I had no idea that most Germans hate Nazis!
When i was younger 5 or 6 i thought we were fighting Russians in WW2
and which lead me up till 6th grade that Nazis were russian
When I was younger I always saw my mum taking money out the ATM and I always thought that the ATM made money and you could take as much as you wanted!
I used to believe the opposite of "expensive" was "relading". I didn't even know what expensive meant. I was just told I couldn't have something because it was expensive, so I said, "No! It's relading!", not knowing what the word meant but wanting that.
