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!
