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.

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!
