I used to believe that in 2020 flying cars would be invented and the world would turn futuristic. You can guess what actually happened.
I used to believe a second lasted longer than a minute When I was youger, my mom would always answer "just a second" or "one sec" when I called her or asked her for something. Her using the word "second" that way led me to believe that a second lasted the time it took for my mom to help me or listen to me (usualy 5 to 10 minutes). You can imagine how confused I was when a freind of mine told me there were 60 seconds in a minute. I firmly stood my ground and our argument only ended when I asked my parents how long a second was.
When I was very, very young, I was convinced that a week was half a day.
When I was in Kindergarten I thought the time was according to what I now know as the minute hand. For example, if the minute hand was on 2, I thought it was 2 o'clock. If it was on 3, it was 3 o'clock. Until I learned how to tell time.
I used to believe there were only 6 days of the week : Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. I was confused when I first heard about Wednesday
I used to think a day was 60 hours long, just like an hour is 60 minutes long and a minute is 60 seconds long. I thought we just slept through most of it.
I used to think "A.M." and "P.M." meant "After Midnight" and "Post Midday".
Hey guys! I understand now why we used to believe something that's because at least i did I learned the months from September to august but in the reality the year starts in January and ends in December. That's why
i used to think before clocks were invented, there was no such thing as time
I used to think that Holisay was an extra day of the week and wondered why it didn't appear on the calendar.
