I got a list of this actually for me when I made this topic on some other forums.
1. I thought chocolate milk came from brown cows.
Come on! I think many of us have had this misconception when we were children. White cows gave us milk, Brown chocolate milk. I thought black cows gave out chocolate fudge strangely. I think this one might me the most common misconception we had as kids. But... again. I would like to know if I am wrong in thinking this.
2. If you had glasses, you knew how to use a computer...
Now... I know I am mainly wrong in this. But considering the smarter people in my school as a kid were the kids with glasses, I always thought that they knew how to use computers more then regular eye sight kids. No offense to anyone with glasses! Just a misconception I had as a kid.
3.DBZ style stuff was possible.
I fully admit to trying to become super saiyan and Kamehameha'ing things. I REALLY tried... bums me out still to this day. Dammit. I demand that if we ever get the technology, I demand someone to make a weapon like the kamehameha. I mean, come on science! get the hell on that!
What misconceptions did you have as a kid?
