Things you were wrong about.

[size=1]When I was little, I remember my mom and dad commenting about someone's car, and how it needed a new muffler. It was winter, and we had lots of winter accessories (hats, gloves, scarves) around the house, so I thought we should just offer those people one of our extra scarves.

I also remember thinking that everyone had to have braces when they were a teenager. Like, you would turn thirteen, and then [i]they[/i] would take you away and put braces in your mouth, and you had to keep them until you were twenty. I was [i]terrified[/i] of being a teenager.

What were you wrong about as a kid?[/size]

[font=trebuchet ms] When I was in 4th grade I read [i]Animal Farm[/i] (my sister had to read it for school and I took the book during an airplane ride). My sister asked me what happened to Boxer, to which I said "they buried him :')", and then she told me what really happened. :|

Also I thought the only way people "lost weight" was if someone cut them open and took out their fat.[/font]

I thought that the bones you had were all you would get. If you broke one, they'd cut it off and replace it with a robot that would eat away at your brain.

I thought I could fly like Mary Poppins and jumped off a jungle gym with my open umbrella.

I thought I could get rid of failed tests that needed to be signed by putting them under the bed for the monster to eat.

With our fat lazy society that is quickly becoming a reality...

I thought that my fievel doll was alive because it moved from the floor to my bed...turned out it was only my parents (sad realization).

I thought that the animals from Milo and Otis were trained to talk.

I wouldn't eat my vegetables, not because they were gross, but because if I was what I ate I wanted to become a cow before an inatimate stalk of celery.

The worst was I actually believed if you put your mind to it you could be whatever you wanted to be.

I thought religious restraint was respectable.

I thought the military wouldn't be [i]too[/i] bad.

I thought I could never be completely happy just doing music.

I thought drunkeness was for the stupid.

I also thought weed was for the stupid.

I thought all Muslims spoke Arabic.

I thought Alexander the Great's name was actually Alexander.

[quote name='Axel Alloy']When I was a wee nipper, I used to think you'd get pregnant by just sitting next to someone in bed. :P That, or if the poked your belly button with their finger.[/QUOTE]

[SIZE="1"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"]I thought masturbation could get you pregnant O_O[/COLOR][/SIZE]

I had also heard when I was a young'n that carrots were good for your eyes. Naturally, I used to try to shove carrots into my eyes so that I could see better. Hmm.

I also thought a million dollars wasn't very much money... like, at all.

I was also convinced that music could never make any kind of mathematical sense. Being a music major has ruined that sense of ignorance for me....... entirely.[/COLOR][/SIZE]

[quote name='CaNz']I thought that playdoe looked tasty.[/QUOTE][size=1]I was once at a relative's house as a child, and they had made their own playdough. No big deal, we made it at my house, too, sometimes.

The thing is, instead of using food coloring, they colored their with [i]Kool-aid[/i].

It smelled [i]so[/i] good. I kept surreptitiously licking my fingers, hoping to be rewarded with sweet, grapey goodness... only to be tragically disappointed (every time!) when it tasted like salt.

The Kool-aid playdough still haunts my dreams.[/size]

Maybe that's why I didn't stick to my music major. Just couldn't handle the math. Then I tried audio engineering and discovered it was all physics. No wonder I ended up with a degree in religion.

I remember when I was young I though Marylin Manson was a woman.

[quote name='Rachmaninoff'][FONT="Trebuchet MS"]I can remember thinking I was going to be just like certain super hero's when I grew up. That was, of course, before I was old enough to realize that such things were fiction. [/FONT][/QUOTE][size=1]I am [i]totally[/i] a superhero. Not quite the one I was expecting to be, but a superhero nevertheless.[/size]

When i was little, i thought my stuffed animals and toys were alive, because i just KNEW that Disney's Toy Story wouldn't lie to me. I used to try to catch them moving. I never could. xD

I also thought that every lady gets pregnant when they turn 20, whether or not they wanted a baby.

I used to think that there was only 2 different tacos you could get at taco bell. Crunchy and soft.

There was a Disney movie, I currently can't remember which, where the evil villianess pulls off her false eyelashes. I always thought that if I tugged on the ends of my realy eyelashes that they would come off in one continuous line.

I also thought that rainbows were solid objects.

I thought you pooped out babies. Age 15 - Well, you know.

I thought I could marry someone I didn't love. Age 15 - I realized I am selective.

I thought I was smart. Age 19 - I realized I was smart enough to accept that I'm just not entirely stupid.

I thought my parents were perfect. Age 20 - I realized they were human.

I thought I was going to be a business woman. Age 21 - I realized I wanted to teach.

[quote name='taperson'][SIZE="1"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"]Oh. I thought that black people were just really tan white people.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/QUOTE]


[color=deeppink]There's an episode of Seinfeld where George didn't want to date a woman because she was too tan during winter. I haven't seen it since I was about 10, but back then I was absolutely convinced she was black.

I never really figured out which it was.[/color]
