When I was younger my friend told me that in Ireland instead of having 3-leaf clover patches they had 4-leaf clover patches and that finding a 3-leaf clover over there was lucky. We devised a plan to sell our 3-leafed clover over there to make money! I actually still believed this till a few months ago when I put some thought in to it ...I'm in Collge

I used to believe that a "gentlemens club" was a building where a bunch of men gathered together in tuxedos and top hats to smoke cigars. I was quite embarassed when I learned the truth!

I used to think my school actually disappeared on days when I didn't have school. I thought this because my mom was driving me somewhere on a day off and we went down what I thought was the street my school was on, but it wasn't, so of course my school wasn't on it...

I used to think London was in France. Whenever kids in school would say, 'I see london, I see France, I see so and so's underpants', I was confused because I figured if you could see London, of course you could see France!

I thought Canada never experienced daytime after I saw a picture of a mountain in Canada at night. I also thought it was nothing but ice and glaciers, like Antarctica, because of this.

When I was 10, my family went to the grand canyon & the adults were talking about how it takes 2 hours to hike down and it can take 4 to 6 hours to go back up. However I misheard them. I thought they said 46 hours, not 4 to 6 hours. I was thinking "Why would anyone want to spend almost two days hiking up a canyon?" A few days later I was thinking about it and I realized my mistake.

I thought Battersea was called that because it was built right next to the sea and got battered by the waves. Later when I learned about the Battersea Shield I thought it was like a giant wall they built at the seaside to shield the city from the waves!

When I was about 4 or 5 my mom told we were going to visit my aunts and uncles that lived in Wales. I pictured them all living inside the stomaches of actual whales. I was very confused when we arrived at a normal house instead.
