When I was younger, I believed that any time my parents went to the drug store, they were buying illegal drugs. Now I realized when I got older that was not the case obviously, but it made me have a great appreciation for this list Buzzfeed put together of ridiculous people believed as kids. Check out some of my favorites below! Click here to read more.
"I thought old and young versions of movie characters were played by the same actor, and they just waited until the actor grew up to finish making the movie."
"I thought the Gushers commercials where their heads turned into a fruit were real, so I wouldn't eat them until I was in my teens."
"I thought clowns were a race of people. I was obviously wrong."
"I thought the satellite dish kept the aliens away."
"I thought there were little people in the radio who lived there and played the music for me."
"My grandpa told me his dentures were donated teeth from people who died."
"My dad's birthday is 4th of July so for the longest time I thought our town lit fireworks for him."
"My parents told me that the hazards switch in the car was actually an eject button for bad kids."
"My sister told me the mannequins in the mall were dead people that no one collected from the morgue."
"When I was a little I thought a 'dead end' meant that's where people dumped dead bodies."
"My parents made me believe it was illegal to have the interior lights of the car on at night while driving."
"I thought that people who died in movies actually died — like part of getting the job meant you had to be willing to get killed, too."
