I used to think that German people had more germs than other people because they were "Germ"an.

So whenever I got a sticker from an employee at Walmart that has a german accent, I would get the hand sanitizer from my mom's purse and put it on my hands and the sticker and when they asked why, I would say that I do that so I wouldn't get any germs from him/her, as they have a german accent and that made me believe I would catch germs from them. I was 6 when that happened

I live in Quebec, Canada and when I was 8 years old there was the referendum and all the adults were talking about it. I thought that if Quebec seperated from Canada, they would literally take a jackhammer and detach Quebec from the rest of Canada along the border lines and we would float into the ocean.

I used to believe that everyone else on the earth was a robot, and they were only made because they needed to help me live my life, even the ones in another country, because what if I visited that country? I would always cry at night thinking, "Why do I have to be alone!?"

When I was little my Dad told me Japanese people work hard and eat raw fish called sushi. I imagined a man pulling a wriggling fish out of the ocean and biting right into it. I thought the Japanese must work so hard they have no time to cook the fish!

When I was a kid, my mom told me that there were snakes under the turbans that male Muslims put on their head. I didn't have the guts to look at them when I learned that.

I saw a Public Service Announcement on TV saying that "All Aliens need to register at their local Immigration office by December 31st." I ran to my mom and said, "Mom, there are ALIENS on Earth! They just said so on TV!" I was a little frightened, but also a little excited. Wouldn't it be cool to have some little green person, or Mr. Spock, or Uncle Martin living on your block? Then mom explained that people from other countries living here were also called "aliens." Well, I guessed that would be cool, too...though not *quite* as exciting as having a spaceman for a neighbor.
