...that each country was a different planet...that's why we had to fly to get there =]
i used to think that desert islands, pirates and kings with their castles don't or didn't exist at all
When I was young I used to believe that California was in the sky. I thought this because ever since I was a baby my family and traveled to California a couple times a year to visit my realatives and I thought we had to take a plane because there was simply no other way to get there. hahah.
I used to believe that china REALLY was underground and my dad always told me to watch out for the china man cuz if I dug to deep he would pull me down. I was scared to death to pull carrots, rubarb or dig potatoes when my mom or dad would ask me for fear that the china man would get me!
i used to think the state border was a big wall round the area that you had to climb over to get to the next place
I used to think that the states were on top of each other. I live in Kansas, so that meant that when I looked at the sky the sky would be Nebraska's ground and Kansas ground was Oklahoma's sky. Yeah I knew dirt is brown but it was a optical illusion to make it blue. I was very confused when i heard otherwise.
As a child I was told that America was "below" Canada. I believed that If I looked down the sewers, I would see America
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.
i used to believe that the north pole was on the clouds!
I used to think that Africa was in South America, because I'd heard that S.A. was very hot and I knew for sure that Africa was.
I used to believe that England was on a cloud because I had been there several times before the age of four. I thought that airplanes just took you straight up!
I used to believe that Kansas (pronounced "kan-sas"), Arkansas (pronounced "ar-kan-sas") and Arkansas (pronounced "ar-kan-saw") were three different states in the U.S.
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 used to believe that my country is actually the whole world and that other countries were all cities inside my country,so somehow geography was too easy for me as a child! it was after many years that i realized that there's more to the world than where i live,hehe....
when i was a kid i belived that behind the mountain it was only africa until 2001 when i first look at a map
When I was young I thaugth that the phillipines was about where Germany is.
Until maybe 8th grade, I didn't know Alaska was attatched to Canada. And neither did my mom, I was looking at a map in my history book, and when she looked at the map, she said "Wait, Alaska's connected to Canada!?"
