    I thought that babies came out of women's anal cavities.
    I also thought that you could just write a check for any amount if money and get that amount. I thought you could just give yourself a million dollar check and claim the money.
    I also thought credit cards just gave you infinite money.

    Somewhere.
    I thought people couldn't get shot at a movie theater.
    I thought I wouldn't be stabbed once every few months because all I have is a fucking penny you fucking homeless shitheads.
    I thought my sister was pure evil. Not as much anymore.
    I thought unicorns were real.
    I thought ghosts were fake until I was raped by one and then marked.
    I thought everybody would always hate me no matter what.
    I thought that Tiger in the exhibit was friendly. Oh boy, it was fun.
    I thought by petting a seal on the beach I would lose my arm. It just purred like a cat.
    I thought I couldn't talk to cats. I guess I'm a whisperer.

    most are honestly, with the exception of a few "Oi Mate!" variants

    Normies ruin everything.

    I assumed all men had foreskin. Even after finding out that a lot of guys don't I still didn't get why.

    As a child I assumed that a plant would grow in my stomach if I ate a seed.

    I used to think that...
    • ...credit cards = infinite money.
    • ...you can write any amount on a check.
    • ...my mother knows everything.
    • ...pregnancy happens because of marriage.
    • ...my shitty old laptop with 2GB of RAM and Windows XP can play everything.
    • ...my grandmother's computer was better than ours. (In reality, ours was ~5 times as good (yes, I've calculated...))
    • ...my old NOKIA had infinite storage. (I loved to make videos. I thought that, because it just made really small videos. The actual storage was 20 MB.)
    • ...online Flash Mario games were official Nintendo games.
    That's all that comes to my mind right now.

    Some months had 32 days. Fuck, I'm seriously convinced I saw some calendars with this as a kid.


    Also, I still view my year schedule as a Monopoly board.

    I thought you pooped out babies and that if you stuck a needle in your pupil you wouldn't go blind and you'd be absolutely fine.

    BOY AM I GLAD I DIDN'T TRY THAT!

    I grew up in the middle of nowhere, in a place in Lincolnshire called East Heckington. I defy you to find it on the map. I lived there for nearly a decade and even I'm not sure where it is. A place that wasn't so much forgotten by time as a place time never found in the first place. But one of the oddest off-shoots of this sheltered upbringing is that there were no non-white people for miles. And back then even the TV was pretty much all white people, so on the rare occasion the TV was used as an actual TV instead of a monitor for the Mega Drive (what Americans know as a Genesis), I only ever saw white people. So imagine my surprise when I moved to Derby and encountered people from India for the first time ever. I'm ashamed to say I thought there was something wrong with them. Like they'd all gotten burned or something. I was 10, OK? We're all allowed a dumb moment or two.

    Thankfully a young lad called Sunny showed me that the colour of one's skin is irrelevant. When I injured my leg all the 'White Power' racist idiots in my school left me in pain, while Sunny was the only one who helped me, despite getting constanty bullied for being different. He didn't care, he was a good kid who wanted to help. That's how I encountered and then bypassed my assumptions about skin colour.

    I thought that anyone in the TV could see you and I thought curses weren't bad :P. Love how the brain of children works, so wild xD
