I am Australian. When I was young I used to get my countries mixed up. I though America was a big jungle with all these dangerous animals like lions, tigers and leopards lived and that American people spoke in Italian accents.

When I was younger, we had a giant satellite photograph of the British Isles hanging in our hallway. There was a small strip of land at the bottom of the photograph (northern France and northen Belgium). One day, I asked my mother what country that bit of land was, and she told me it was France. For years afterwards, I believed that France was a long, thin country, covering pretty much all the coast on the other side of the English channel, and that it was part of the British Isles.

I used to be scared of travelling. Since I live in Canada I thought you were safe. But I was terrified to go to Antartica. Why? I thought you would fall off since it was at the bottom of the globe. And that you would keep falling down in space.

There are these small brown cone-shaped buildings that I can see whenever driving /riding down the highway, and I always thought there were dinosaurs in there. I had a good reason though. When I was maybe 2 or 3, I remember going to a dinosaur exhibit, and I remember the building being the same shape (brown cone).

I used to think the world wasn't round like a globe but more like a spherical cork screw, think helter-skelter or corkscrew slide.

My young mind couldn't manage the idea of people standing upside down on a ball, and having this corkscrew arrangement made perfect sense.

I thought that Florida wasn't connected to the United States, like Hawaii. I never caught on that people drove there in their cars and when I did I just suspected that there was a really long bridge. I found out a couple of months ago that it is connected and I'm almost 15.

I used to believe that if it were raining where I was, then it was raining everywhere else in the world. The same goes for sunshine, snow, etc. I thought the entire world experienced the same weather at the same time.

I used to believe that we were on top of the earth because we walked upright and the ground was under us. So I also equally believed that people on the “bottom” of the earth like Australia walked on space and the ground was on top of them like the sky was for us.

I used to believe that everything in Japan was really dark and had a red tone. I'm not sure why, but I think maybe I saw a martial arts movie that had a dark setting or something.
