When I was real young I can remember thinking babies originated from somewhere behind the knee-cap. I think it was caused from seeing a side cross section and missing the mark completely.
(I wasn't clear on which one it should be behind or how it got there )
I think this counts as a stupid thought.

My na�ve thought was: Women start producing babies when they reach a certain age. A much older cousin wasn't married yet... and I kept wondering, What if she has a baby?

I too thought almost the same way as Nanjangud.
I used to think small babies were there inside each little girl and as she grew ,the baby inside her also grew and when she got married God brought the baby out ,otherwise it was always inside.

HAHAHA. Interesting how people think almost the same way all around the world.
I always used to think that when when 2 grown-ups kissed for more than a few seconds, that produced babies HAHAHAHA
I hope I know better now.

When I was young, I did not know that dentures (false teeth) were artifical. I think my father and my grandparents had dentures at the time. In my logical child mind, I had to determine how it was possible they could have detachable teeth.
I spent time giving it serious thought. How was it possible that a set of teeth could seperate from the jaw in two whole pieces? I tugged my teeth, inspected my gums, and I felt around my jaw bone. It just did not seem possible, but to my child mind the evidence (father and grandparents) dictate that it had to be possible. This mystery had me totally puzzled.
One night my mother found me tugging at my teeth. I had explained my confusion. She then told me about how dentures weren't real teeth but man-made. She told me that she did not have dentures. I, being the good little empiricist that I was, wouldn't believe her until I could tug at her teeth to verify that they were not detachable.

When I was a kid we lived on the top floor of an apartment building. My mom never liked that all too much because she was afraid of tornadoes. In my mind I could picture a big, dark tomato hanging over the building...

On a lighter side, my older sister believed that if a pillow was cold, that meant it was wet and that meant it was dangerous to sleep on.
I can remember her walking around feeling our pillows and taking them all away
child logic, wet implied cold therefore cold implies wet
wet -> cold
therefore cold -> wet
A five year old can't argue with a 7 yo about this, unfortunately.

And when it rained in sudden burst from the skies I would question what causes rain and my inquisitivenes would be put to rest by "God in heaven presses a button and it showers down on earth".....
I also distinctly remember having questioned..where do babies come from. Reply would be "God sends them"...and I would wonder
'then why do women get admitted to hospitals to get babies' and would imagine God sending down babies from heaven above...they would come wafting lightly over the breeze...wrapped in warm swathes of soft cloth....which would be nealty caught my the nurses in the backyard of hospitals and prospectives moms would choose from them!! All that makes me laugh now....

Once I happened to swallow the seed of a blueberry like fruit and was scared to death to learn that a tree would start sprouting inside my stomach....branches emerging out from my mouth....hehe.

When I was a kid I thought traffic lights were controlled by a bunch of men who lived underneath the street.

I used to think that before a band could get a song played on the radio they had to play it for the president, who would decide if it was good enough. I had all of these images of rock groups setting up drums and stages in the oval office all of the time.

I also used to think that buses were rubber in the middle so they could turn corners.

I was watching TV in our caravan when I was a kid and when in the caravan the picture was fuzzy on the TV. We didn't get good reception there anyway, but it happened to be stormy that day so the picture was even worse.
I asked my dad what was up with the picture on the TV and he told me that it was because the cows in the next field were walking around.
For years after that I believed that TV interference was caused by nearby cows.
