I used to belive that when it was 11:56pm or like that i thought it was eleven fifty-six o'clock.

When I was a kid, I used to think that here in the U.S. it'd be for example 1995 and over across the seas (ex: Europe or U.K.) it'd be 1996. I later realized it's the same year all across the world. Thinking back I don't even know what put that silly thought in my head.

When I was in Kindergarten, and it was 1997, I thought it had always been 1997, and always would be 1997.

When I was about seven, I got a little confused about time zones. I was under the impression, from my particularly strange imagination, that it was to do with how often you had to put the clocks forward or backward an hour.

I live in Birmingham, in the UK, just west of the Grenwich meridian. I thought that people living on the Grenwich meridian didn't have to put their clocks forward or backward an hour at all, people living where I did had to alter their clocks twice a year, and people living on the other side of the world had to change theirs several hours forward or backward every day.

I still don't know how this worked.

I used to believe that I was able to tell the time by looking out the window and counting the number of metal spokes sticking out of the timber holding up the telephone lines. Whenever my mum asked me to read the time from the clock I would always look out the window and count the number of metal spokes and I was almost always right. weird!

When I asked how long a minute was my mom said "sixty seconds" when I pressed her for more clarification she said "count to a hundred". Can't get the logic. I was very mixed up for a very long time.

Growing up in the Sacramento, California area, it was explained to me that New York was three hours ahead because the sun rose and set earlier there, since they were on the east coast. I knew that San Francisco was a little further west than Sac, so the sun would set a few minutes later there compared to Sac. Therefore, ther must be a few minutes time difference between SF and Sac. For some reason, I thought it was a continual time zone change across the U.S. based on the sun, not broken into time zones like "eastern," "central," "mountain," and "pacific." (Air travel is tough enough as it is, can you imagine if this was the case?)

I was born in the early 70s. Therefore I assumed that fashion never changed until the 80s came along.

I used to wonder that maybe in reality I just repeat the same day over and over. I was always relieved when the next day arrived, but I always wondered, Is this my last day? How would I know? And hey, I found out there's a movie like that called Grounhog day.

When I was young I did not understand the time zone thing. I wondered how TV studios could get the recorded shows all the way to the next time zone at the end of the show so it could "air" on time.

I thought that if you changed the time on the clock, it turns that time. I thought this cuz my parents changed the clock for daylight savings times and i thought 'hey it changed, the time changed!' I changed my clock to 10:00pm and was astounded. I couldnt change the time in real life, it was still light out. So i thought that only parents could change the time. I asked my sis and she had to set me straight.

my mom used to use the term 15 o' clock to describe a late time....well, my little sister thought it was a real time...there for one time, when i was playing my my best friend in the early morning before the school bus came...back when i was like 10, we were running a little late...so my little sister came running around the corner yelling at us to get ready because it was already 15 o'clock ...and she was as serious as can be.

One time I heard my mom talking on the phone with my aunt. She was talking about how we were going to lose an hour (daylight savings). I thought that we were literally going to have one hour less in the day and that there would be one less hour every day from then on.

I used to believe that I was going to school at "night" because where I live in the winter time, the sun doesn't rise until later in the morning.
