I thought fringes were genetic (as in not a haircut anyone could get)
I also thought B roads were full of killer bees and would cry any time we went down one :rofl:

You?

We had a loft conversion done when I was about 4, and I was terrified of going upstairs to the attic in case the “attic monster” attacked me. In the end my dad told me there was a monster in the attic called Eric, and he was friendly. He even took me to see said invisible Eric. I’m no longer scared of my loft conversion (which is now my bedroom) as any weird noise is just Eric. I’m 20 😂

That people lived in the TV. Or if you put your hands over your eyes that you'd turn invisible/would be hidden, lol.

I thought Timbuktu was a made up place (just like the Queen of Sheba was also made up).

Aside from the classic things like religion, Santa, tooth fairy/Pérez mouse (yes, in Spain it’s a mouse that takes your baby teeth, not a fairy):

1) That little men were inside traffic light boxes (I imagined them complete with hard builders hats and having their little lunch boxes with them) and operated the lights manually from inside.

2) That the food you ate went all the way down to your feet and just built up inside your limbs.

3) That narwhals were unicorns that had fallen into the sea off Noah’s ark and somehow evolved to swim instead of drowning.

4) That different species could reproduce with each other. I always wondered why no one had had sex with a bird yet to make a human with wings, as it would be so cool to be able to fly!

5) That different accents were literally caused by a different structure in the throat. I used to wonder how an American’s throat architecture was different to that of a Brit because of how differently they spoke!

Those are the ones I can think of off the top of my head right now.

babies are born falling from the sky
milk = cow piss
eat fruit seeds = grows a plant in your body
teachers lived in the school and had no life like a robot ffs
bus drivers made a lot of £££ (I didn't know cash notes existed back then and got the impression when people put lots of coins into the money box)

That the police were obliged to tell the truth. Your mate's told us all about it so might as well come clean!
