    I thought that girls urinated and had babies out of their anuses.

    I also thought that there were people under traffic lights that watched the cars and controlled when they changed.

    My older brother told me that when you're 10 your penis falls off. I spent most of my youth worrying my penis was going to drop off.

    I thought Santa would come into my room with a knife and kill me.

    What were your's? :awesome:

    The only way people could die was laying on the floor with their arms as far away from their bodies as possible.

    I believed we had loads of tiny people inside of us who worked to help us with different processes in the body.
    Ooh and I was tormented and told that the small bags of little beady things which say do not eat on them could make you lose all your hair if they touch you. Damn sister.

    I spent my childhood up until secondary school assuming that the world was Catholic. When I started there I was like, why don't we have to pray before we can go for lunch or before we can go home?

    Was strange, but I'm glad that I've seen both sides of blind theism and pure atheism :rolleyes:

    That the term for menstrual cycle was "periodic table".

    I used to tell my friends when we were afraid of getting our periods, "it's alright, when we get periods, we won't get them unexpectedly because we'll know when our next one is because of the periodic table."

    :awesome:

    I thought that dogs ate cats.

    When teachers (or people in general) would say they had lost their voice, I thought when you're born you were only given a certain amount of voice, once it was used up you couldn't talk anymore, because of that I didn't talk to any of the children in year 1 and teachers thought I was Autistic...
