I thought we could buy money.

I mostly pop in occasionally to give my two cents on certain controversial things, so if you disagree then send a PM, because I generally don't check for replies in threads in case I feel like replying and then things get heated/derailed.

I was terrified I'd end up in jail through absolutely no fault of my own. I had a vague, at best, knowledge of the law and justice system.

Ha ha, I also believed my stuffed animals had feelings. I used to try treat them all with equal love even if I had favourites so nobody would get jealous.

Come to think of it, I do sometimes worry that I hug my teddy bear more than I do my Angry Bird plush...

I thought that those lines representing the orbit of planets around the sun were actually giant rings holding the planets.

I used to read a lot of science mags and a lot of stuff was really confusing for me at such a young age, I ended up learning a lot though.

I think all of us believed our stuffed animals had thoughts, feelings, and personalities.  What's scary is that sometimes our imaginary friends are more "real" and "true" than real-life friends who are probably "fake" people, ya know?  That's why Calvin and Hobbes was my favorite comic, because I felt like I couldn't relate to other kids and only my teddy bear really understood me. 

And I'm also sure all of us thought we could fly by jumping off the stairs while flapping your arms really fast.  Or that if you tied a sheet around your neck like Superman's cape that you could fly.  I jumped off the stairs a few times as a kid a few times, can't you tell?

And if you haven't had childhood misconceptions about your private parts, then you were never a child... at least not an organic one.

A centimeter is 100 millimeters.

A boner just means you have to pee.  Actually, there is some truth to that one haha.

I believed I was invincible. Seriously. One time I rode this bike I had down an old logging trail. The bike had no breaks, and no chain. Basically, I should've died.

Until I was about 13, I thought all illegal substances (ie "drugs") could be smoked. I understood that some things were also injected, eaten, snorted, etc. But I thought that, as a last resort, everything could be smoked (I suspect it all stemmed from the crack/cocaine confusion). So I think I went around using phrases like "you smoke heroin" or "quit smoking LSD" in 5th grade.

Yeah...

You could smoke LSD. Won't do shit cause heat destroys the LSD but you could like, light an lsd stamp.

Probably only do this if you're already high.

-You shouldn't scratch a piece of carton at night (or make a similar annoying noise for that matter) or the witch would come and get you

-Naughty children are send away to be raised by the Institution

-Eating marshmellows on hot summer days makes you vomit

Oh, and the whole stuffed animal thing, of course, but I did play favourites. In my opinion, my Waffie (a dog) was the president and king of stuffed animal land. It took it's toll on poor Waffie though. He's missing both his ears, his tongue and most of his fur. We've replaced his stuffing atleast three times and he has the scars to prove it. Oh, and this one time my cousin sat on him! I tried to get him back and poor Waffie was ripped in two! Mom and I sewed him back together, but he was never quite the same again. Poor Waffie :(
