    When I was little, I also thought sex was just a man peeing on a lady xD
    When I was young I thought that you just had to lie there without moving. Then I saw porn on the internet and thought that the guy moving in and out was just doing because he was a show off.

    NZ is a modern developed country.

    The truth from people who live there seems to be that it is a developing third world backwater.

    'I learned to play the piano' is wrong.

    'Learned' is an adjective to describe someone or something that is scholarly or has acquired or shows a lot of knowledge, like 'that man is a learned professional'.

    It's 'learnt' otherwise, like 'I learnt to play the piano'.

    I still have issues imagining there being colour in times where there's largely been just black and white photos.

    I just used sort of assumed that someone had 'invented' colour.

    I used to think white people did white poo.

    When one of my friends stayed the night and went to the toilet - I quickly went in to wash my hands - my real reason was to see his poo.

    Suffice to say, I was left with much disappointment.

    Not gonna lie, I was born and brought up in London, and it was only one time when I was 14 and going to visit family in Newcastle, I realised Kings Cross St. Pancras was not called Kings Cross St. Pancreas.

    in the NFL, there are these instant replay booths that referees use to potentially change a ruling on the field.

    When I was little, I used to think they were "concentration posts" where a referee would go to think quietly, by himself, and try to remember the play.

    A girl in my GCSE history class thought that the Nazis couldn't have persecuted gay people because homosexuality was only invented in the 1980s :rofl:

    She was also incapable of finding Italy on a world map.

    I know right? I blame the voice over man .... & the rest of the world. Although I knew he had health clubs, I'd seen Bannatyne health clubs and thought what a STUPID name hehe. Valentine's a better last name anyway :innocent:

    When I was in primary school and we had to sing 'we wish you a merry Christmas' in assembly I always thought it went 'Good tidings we bring to you and your KING.' And I'd be like 'I SWEAR we have a queen.'
    I thought it was king until I read that :lol:

    I always thought RIP was just the word rip...I could never understand why RIP was always written on graves. Later on my Mum told me what it stood for, but I misheard and thought she said rest in pieces. Double fail.
    I actually LOLd at this!! :lol:
