I remember when I was 9-10 and I started liking girls, I honestly thought there was a specific legal age you have to be before you're allowed to go out with a girl, 15-16 or something.

They have to have a full Criminal Records Bureau check, blood tissue sampling done and a full psychoevaluation test.  They also have to be prepared to then meet me.

That Jesus was Greek.

That Jerry Lewis and Jim Carrey were the same person.

That my grandma was my grandma and NOT my auntie's mother.

That if I stayed up too late the aliens from War Of The Worlds (1952) would come through my window, complete with glowing red, green and blue lights.

That teachers lived at school (a belief furthered by the fact that my kindergarten had a kitchen).

A particular Care Bears episode (where a dull greyness is taking hold of the city, and everyone becomes zombie-like beings) was the scariest thing I'd ever seen.

That Star Wars was boring, a belief that holds true to this day.

If i stayed on the toilet too long for a poo a poo monster would come out and pull me down the toilet. that fear came from seeing a trailer for Deep Rising. I still think about it often now

when i am having apoo, doesnt make me scared, just makes me laugh a little

Definitely an old one bumped.

I just remembered today whilst slicing a seedy Aubergine that I used to think that people made seeds. I used to think there was a factory which was mixing various things together and churning out seeds at the other end.

I used to think that. It was probably because they came in packets.

I used to think the song "Daisy, Daisy" was about a cow. It confused me. I could never understand why a cow would be riding on a tandem. That the singer would would want to marry a cow would have been really odd  never really occurred to me.

When I was 8/9/10 I always used to read the personals in the local newspaper (not quite sure why, but I think it's cos I thought it was the same as people selling items in the classifieds section), but for years I'd seriously convinced myself that WLTM stood for Willy Length Ten Metres.

All of these.....apart from Peter Pan, although reading through this thread, Hoodie, I see that you already mentioned that so you believed it enough for both of us

I also used to believe in the whole rainbow/pot of gold deal when I was a kid and that thunder was the sound of dark clouds crashing into each other.

I believed (still think it will happen) that all the cool stuff from the future in Back to the Future would happen, hover boards, flying cars, mr fusion, self drying coats and power trainers (the last one was my favourite).
Not time machines though, thats bollocks.

I'm sure I've posted this before...

When I was young and my dad worked offshore I used to always cry the night before he left. He worked 2 weeks on and 2 weeks off, so it's not like it was ever unexpected or that he'd be away for months, but I'd still cry all the same. So he'd always have to console me the night before he went away, telling me it wouldn't be long until he returned and that he needed to go away to make pennies.

My young mind took that literally. I knew what an oil rig and platform looked like, so I knew where he was going, but I thought his job while on the platform was to actually made pennies. As in, with a big sheet of copper and a chisel. And for some reason I thought he'd be sat behind a glass screen, like in a bank, just passing out pennies through the metal tray to anybody who needed them.

Once I got older and explained to my dad what I thought he used to do, it's been a running joke now to speak about work as 'making pennies' and usually he'll make the sound effect of hammering pennies out of metal to accompany it.

I remember my Mum used to eat Special K cereal. Their slogan, back then, was something like 'a grown-up cereal for people who'd rather not grow anymore...'

Nice slogan, kinda catchy, obviously referring to people who who don't want to grow outwards....

My tiny, idiot child mind thought that Special K cereal actually made you shrink...

On the TV show Hart to Hart the voiceover on the opening credits went "My names Max, I look after them both which aint easy"

However with the guys accent all I heard as a child was 'I look after them both, we're chinese-y" I knew it couldn't be right but thats all I could hear
