    I used to think the sun disappeared into space at night, and then came back the next morning, having literally walked a straight line into space and back. I also believed that milk wasn't altered in any way, and that was how it tasted straight out of the cow, and that we couldn't all breathe same air without dying of pollution from each others bodies, or that we literally drank our own treamented urine.

    I never believed that metal could expand or contact as I couldn't see it happen, or that swords could be made shiny, as they're always black when made. In fact I still don't know how they go from the black steel colour to that wonderful shiny silver colour now! plus I used to think that windows were made by knocking holes through a completely brick house, as was everything else house related

    I remember being told the boy next door had been run over by a car, and being really shocked to learn he wasn't flat.
