When I was a little girl, I used to have a funny believe about traveling to China. My brother and I used to think that if we started to dig in the earth, we could arrive to China and see people from there. That was so strange because we tried to do it once, but of course we failed, that was so far from us. We used to believe that people from this part of the world traveled on this way and we could do the same. Now we know that we need to take a flight to get there. Very expensive!

I used to believe the Tropic of Cancer was a part of the world where lots of people got cancer. I assumed skin cancer must be especially common there, since I could see on the globe that it ran through the Carribean where it's so sunny.
I always felt really lucky that I didn't live in that part of the world.

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.

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.

I thought you could get banned from checking out books in a library if you accidently rip a page. Whenever I'd rip a page accidently, I would be scared when we had to return them, thinking I will never be allowed to check a book out again. Luckily that didn't happen!
