I used to think when I saw a building with a sign saying 'founded' that it was always just there and someone finally found it and put up the sign
When I was three my family moved to a place called Black Rabbits. I looked all over the place for those rabbits but I never saw them.
Finally I said something about it in front of my parents and they laughed, and we drove down the lake to the place where the RAPIDS were, and they pointed out the sign that said Black Rapids. (Yes, I could read when I was three.) They explained that rapids were a place where the water in the lake moves fast through a narrow spot, and I got the idea.
Still, for at least a little while, whenever we drove past or boated through the rapids I would imagine that I could see the rabbits swimming in the choppy water.
The first line of Canada's nation anthem is "O Canada our home and native land." When I was young I thought that every country in the world used Canada's national anthem but they'd just substitute "Canada" for whatever their country's name was.
when I was a kid, I though you could actually dig a hole through the earth, and get to the other side, but you would have to walk on your hands.
I live in Brooklyn, NY. and there's an avenue in Brooklyn called Kings Highway. When I was a kid, I thought there was a king there, and if you go on that street, he would kill you.
I used to think Toronto was in Japan--I think I mixed it up with Tokyo. I also thought Poland and Portugal were the same thing.
I used to think the word "european" had something to do with pee, and that kids weren't supposed to say it.
I used to think Newfoundland, Holland and Denmark were all the same thing, and that it was an island near North America that was its own country.
When I was smaller I used to believe that there was always someone doing exactly what I was doing at the moment because the world is so big!
At one point, i thought that "Where the Sun Don't Shine" and "The Land of The Rising Sun" where the same thing
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 believe Amsterdam was a dam made out of hamsters.

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 the southern half of the United States was warm all the time and the northern half was cold all the time (I live in southern California). Then I went to New York City in the summer...
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!
My sister and I both jumped to the same conclusion that the sea was actually someones paddling pool.
Just a lot better than the one we had in our garden.
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.
