Jeesh I was dumb but I know I am not the only one who thought this stuff. See below. Add yours
“I think we all have thought that at one time or another.”
Yeah, but do you still wonder about sometimes as I do? :-)
Liberals are a disproof of solipsism. I could never create people that stupid in my mind.
When I was a kid I was panicked because the doctor did a test on me to see if I had been watching television when I shouldn't have been. Or at least that's what I thought the TV skin test was for. Turns out it was testing for TB and not TV.
Laz, I think this explains quite a lot.
I remember one kid hoisting another to look in the girls bathroom window. He screamed “Pink toliets...Pink toliets!!!”
Just as the head nun turned the corner,,,LOL
Ha. It’s a common misconception.
Only not when peeing.
"Jesus loves me, this SINO..."
OK, I’ll play, but mine is not that amusing, IMO.
I had a play kitchen set. The sink had a little water tank in the back of it and when you turned a spigot, the water flowed so you could wash the play dishes. I spent an entire day wondering around the outside of the house looking for the tank for our kitchen sink. Finally, Mom asked me what I was doing and when I told her, she laughed and explained the concept of well, pipes and pressure tank in the cellar. I think I was 4 or 5.
I thought Roy Rogers lived in our radio. I was 5 or 6.
I had no concept of sex until 3rd grade when older kids educated me on the playground. I was told by parents that sex was only fun if you were married and you couldn’t have babies unless you were married and I think I believed that until I was 11 or 12.
But all this was a very long time ago...1947-1954. I think we were all this naive and that was just fine.
I used to think ocean waves were actually alive, like animals.
I used to think we were the richest people in our town, but it turns out we were actually kind of just scraping by at times. I guess we were a lot like the George Bailey family - rich in the things that mattered.
I was confused by the song, “I’m just a girl who cain’t say no.”
I’d tell my dad, “She just said it!”
He never responded, thereby adding to the confusion.
So many of the dreams of my youth have been shattered asunder that listing them would be too painful.
Early 60s...I wanted a superman suit from the Sears Christmas catalog so bad. My secret belief was that once I got it, I would be able to fly. Wonder of wonders..I got it for Christmas! I snuck into the bedroom and put it on, climbed onto the bed and prepared to jump off and fly. Just before my jump, my big sister came in and declared, “You don’t think you can actually fly in that thing do you?”
“Uhh...no.” I said.
Thus ended my flying career.
This is the funniest thread her on FR in awhile.
When I was a kid, we had a babysitter named Ruby. One day, Ruby took me to her house and I believed her family was super wealthy b/c their toilet was located in a separate building.
So THAT’S why the dogs would all start barking when I peed!!!!
I remember thinking all dogs were male and all cats were female (based on the gender of our own pets).
