I used to believe that Disney World was in the clouds.. because you always had to fly to get there..
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.
When I was little, I used to believe that Illinois (where I lived) was a country
When my dad was young,he used to believe that the lines on a globe were on the world itself.
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.
When I was a child I always thought Canada was apart of the US... not its own country!!
I used to think the Salvation Army was a real army, and I never went with my mother to give donations because I was scared of the army men and their guns.
I thought that Washington, D.C. was in New York.
I thought Las Vegas was in Texas. Seemed like a good place for it.
When I first came to Europe,I met people who used to believe that Africa was a country inside India(don't know why they thought so).Some still do.
When I was small I used to believe ( and really had the fear ) that if I continued going I would fall off the edge of the earth.
then when I was growing up and learned that the earth was rotating on its axis and revolving in its orbit,I still harboured the fear that its axis and orbit might fail it and that the earth would plunge into an abysmal dive.I still have this fear , believe me!
I misread Vatican City when I was younger and thought it was Vacation City. I believed that it was a really pretty place where people liked to go on vacation.
I have no idea why, but I used to believe that London was whole different country than Great Britain and existed in somewhere near Paris.
When was younger, there were 2 things I knew for sure, I knew it snowed in Germany and that clouds look like snow (I'd never been to the snow before.) So when our family friends moved to Germany, I used to look up at the clouds and think of them staring back down from the edges of them.
Until i was corrected at a summer camp in the 7th grade, I thought that electricity was limited to certain cities (those I saw on TV) and the Dallas suburb that I grew up in. I then met some children from another suburb about 10 minutes away who informed me that they did indeed make regular use of both the telephone and the automobile
Until a few years ago, I thought Detroit was in Chicago. I knew that Detroit is a city, and that Chicago is not a state, but somehow these two facts did not combine in my cognition and thus the Lions played in Detroit, CHI (yes, I realize state abbreviation conventions require only two letters). To this day I still think of Detroit as being located in the midwest, not in the north, making work at a global travel company very confusing...
Oh and i am now 22...

I used to believe Germany was in Asia somewhere near Russia.
i used to belive that when you were driving over a hill it was the end of the world
