I thought one minute is equal to ten seconds, but if you do more than one minute then it is multiply number of minutes by sixty to get seconds, I don't know why I thought one minute was a special exception to this rule... It doesn't make sence to me!
I always thought I had been born in 1888, not 1988, but my sister told me it wasn't possible because Jesus had been born in 1888.
In 1968, when I was 10, my friends and I used to talk about what life would be like in America in the year 2000. We were convinced that there would be flying cars, a solution to world hunger (so we wouldn't have to eat those yucky vegetables on behalf of all those hungry children in China/India/Africa/wherever), and special chutes in every home, with TV-like things where you could press a button to order anything you wanted, and it would come down the chute. (Bear in mind, home computers were still a pipe dream in 1968.)
i used to think there had to be more days than sun-sat and that my mom was just not telling me what they were....
Once I awoke in the night and the clock said 1:00, and I got scared because one hundred was the biggest number in existence. I couldn't go to sleep until I saw it change to 1:01.
I used to think the weekends were three days instead of two!
I believed that after midnight there were actually 12 more hours before the next day. Thus, I never understood why my mom always wanted me to go to sleep so early. I finally found out the truth when I confronted her about having to go to sleep so early.
This is a belief of someone else. I had a girlfriend that thought that everytime we had the Daylight Saving Time, it would drive our country to a different time from the rest of the world.
As I child... I thought time didn't REALLY exist. I thought that time was like a frame of a cartoon film : It wasn't moving, but it looked like it. I also thought your soul traveled through each frame in a different posistion each time.
I abandoned it until I read a book on the idea.
Growing up in Australia I knew we were 10 hours ahead of England, and almost a day ahead of America! Of course, that meant that we were in the future, which made us better than Americans. I remember specifically thinking that rollerblades, even though they were invented in America, would get to Australia a whole day before the Americans got them, which made us more advanced. That's early patriotism for you!
I can remember my Mom talking about long weekends when I was little and she was always planning for them. What I couldn't figure out was why certain weekends were longer than others, I can seriously remember trying to sit down and figure out if the extra hours were on the Sunday or the Saturday. This must have been before I started school - because before you go to school every day is a weekend!
When i was younger i used to belive there was12 second in a minute bc on the clock the numbers went up to 12.I was 6 when i was corrected. Thats sad.
When i was like several months old, i thought i was older than everybody else in the world cuz i thought tht months were longer than years. I thought months were the longest periods of time there were, besides hours. Wow, hours were long to me! Hours, I thought, were like centuries
Up until a few years ago I used to try to go back in time - Normally when my family went on holiday. When we arrived at the hotel or wherever, I would stand still outside trying to remember everything about that moment, the sounds, the smells, everything. At the end of the holiday I would then stand in exactly the same place and imagine I had just arrived, desperately trying to make myself believe that I had gone back in time to the start of the holiday. How pitiful.
When i was about 4 I used to believe that when daylight savings comes and we lose an hour, I thought the hour would be gone forever, and we would never have midnight again.
I used 2 think that if u dint go 2 bed, mornin wud neva cum! I woz so scared tht i mite nt b able 2 get 2 sleep. i thort that we'd b stuk in the same day 4eva until i went 2 sleep n woke up agen! ha!
Once my sister told me that if you would spin around fast enough you cuold travel through time.(ex. if you spun right you would go forward in time, so left would mean going back in time)
When my two brothers and I were little kids, we actually used to believe that there was an opposite day each year. We'd go around speaking to each other and everybody else in opposite meanings, like yes for no, etc. No one else understood what we were doing, and when we explained, "It's OPPOSITE DAY, DUH! You gotta speak opposite!" the adults would just look at us funny... The other kids, however, all immediately began to speak in opposite as well.
I have to thank my dad for this, I thought that if I didn't get dressed before midday, or go to bed after midnight. I would become a pigliwog! He even made a 'pigiliwog detector' out of k'nex with a flaashing light on the end. I ran a mile when he flashed it at me!!!
I used to think that 2 hrs. was 61 minutes.
