My cruel older brother decided to tell me one day when I was four that Madagascar was uninhabited because it had a very active volcano and man-eating monkeys to boot.

I, of course, believed him and would tune out in elementary school when they tried to teach us world geography and mentioned Madagascar (because it obviously didn't matter). It wasn't until I was in 6th or 7th grade that I actually stopped to think about it and realized I was wrong!

My friend and I used to think we could dig to China when we were about 5 years old. We'd meet at the yard in between our houses, with sticks, and start digging in a hole.

well, its not EXACTLY a belief, but close enough...and funny. onetime, i was in the car with my mom and asked why andrew, a close family friend, was not going to be at dinner with the rest of us and his family. she responded "well, he went to seatle." so i ... not thinking before asking, asked "mom, who's attle?" still have yet to live that down.

I always assumed that since so many products are tagged with "Made in China" that if I were to go to China, the country would be just one big factory.

I live in Puerto Rico a small island in the Caribbean. My house had a fence dividing the backyard from the forest. My sister and I, since we were told that China was far away from us, thought that if we crossed the fence in our backyard we would arrive at China. And every day my sister would look out to the backyard and would cross the fence and come back and then start saying to my mom that she had gone to China.

At the age of 3, no one thought to inform me that all the different countries were in one planet. I went on believing that the United States, England, and other countries were each their own little planets in the solar system.

I used to think that the name of the state of Illinois was pronounced "In-louis". It really sucked when we learned the states in 3rd or 4th grade, and I was so proud I knew what the state of "In-louis" was called!

Once when I was little, we took a road trip to Ohio (the next state over). I kept asking "Are we there yet?" She told me I would know when we were there, because the grass would be purple. I was VERY disapointed when we got there...
