This morning on The Chris Moyles Show in the UK they had people texting in with stupid things they used to think, so I'm wondering, what stupid things did you used to think? Here's some examples from the show:

"My wife wondered how diversion signs knew where you were going"

"I used to think Petrol Stations were built where there was petrol under the ground"

"I thought the road sign with a motorbike over a car meant moterbikes weren't allowed to jump over cars"

"I used to think all dogs were male and cats were female"

I think you get the idea. For me, admittedly I was young so it's not so bad, but I used to think babys came from the little seeds in a tomato, I used to make my Mum eat loads of tomatoes because I wanted a little brother. I never got a little brother

I can't think of any off the top of my head. BUT, I do know my younger brother believed for a few years of our childhood that the moon was California...
We were driving to Disneyland from Utah, it was night and I told him that's where we were going, California
I wasn't always the nicest big brother.

Oh, and I told him Nevada was a bridge to it.

My mother once told me never to wipe chicken poo off eggs because the shell is porous. Somehow between that and my brain, I cleverly deduced that because eggs were porous, a chicken lays and egg and the rooster comes along and **** all over it and voila - fertilized egg and eventually baby chickens.

It wasn't until I was at a friends place when I was 19 and saw their's 'fighting' and commented that they should put them in separate pens before they killed eachother that I was told what I was witnessing was chicken romance.

That my neighbour was a serial killer, for some odd reason that creepy old man fit the bill! He was never home at night, turns out 85 year old grandpa over there's got him a hot spanish girlfriend. And we're still wondering how.

my mom saw a commercial about electronics being outdated before they came out of the box and in the commercial this guy buys a 3d tv and the van delivering it say 4d tv coming soon. My mom asked me wow theres 4d tv. I said yes mom i have one but since we don't live in the 4th dimension you cant see it
she laughed and got it pretty quick.

When I was little I used to think that the boulder covered mountains and canyons were where giants went poop and it got petrified over the years.
I recently shared that with my 10 year old daughter while driving through the hills, and she thought I was crazy but added that giant dinosaur poop would be more believable. No doubt in my mind that she's my kid.

No wonder they taste like mouse poop.

look like and taste.

Ironic, how the sweetest fruit is considered so, but we also like it dry and ugly.

"This juicy sweet fruit tastes great dry and bland!"

I thought of one!.... it's a bit embarrassing. However, when I was little, I was afraid of going #2. I thought it was a very real possibility that either a very large snake, or a 'poop monster' would come out from the toilet while I was sitting on it. I would do my business as fast as I possibly could, flush, and GTFO of there before it came out to get me.

So ridiculous, the things we believe when we are children.

Before reading some of these replies, I thought I was the only one this messed up.


Actually, when I was very small and while riding in the front seat of the car, I ask my grandpa what would happen if he turned the ignition keys the other way. Would the car engine turn backwards?

Actually I was afraid of the toilet for awhile when I was little because I saw a movie poster for jaws and they had the shark coming out of the toilet. So yea, was afraid of the shark.

I thought driving stick meant you had to learn to offroad by driving over a bunch of sticks.

I wouldn't eat cheesecake cuz I thought it was made from American or cheddar and in cake form that is just gross.

The arms race were people running a race on their hands.

When I was little, I used to think that you could call Information (411) for...well...information. Since I was home alone that day with no one to help me with my math homework, I called and asked the Information lady.

She explained to me that Information was for getting phone numbers etc...but also helped me with my homework! What a nice lady!
