    Of coarse I thought pro wrestling was real; and it was a harder blow to take than Santa Clause when I found out it wasn't.

    I thought unicorns were real. It didn't seem that far fetched of an animal. It was just some dumb horse with a horn growing out of it's head.

    I was born in 1980 and in the mid 80's the whole AIDS epidemic started and at the time was only effecting homosexual men. Like most kids of my generation we all knew what sex was from a young age, but when it came to gay men I didn't really get it. I thought one guy would stick his dick into the other guys pee hole.

    I thought that I could grow up to be as tall and as built as I felt like as long as I wanted to be that big.

    I thought that as an adult you could just make all of your own stuff. Like you could just collect natural resources and forge them all down and put shit together to make a television or what ever else you wanted. I though my parents just bought stuff like that because they didn't have the time to make it because of work.

    As a kid I thought the store my parents went to was Sears 'Robot' not Sears Roebuck.
    bitter disappointment ensued

    the biggest blow to me, was that I thought, in the end, no matter what, bad guys, or evil -doers would always get their comeuppance...that justice will always prevail after all was said and done.

    I thought fully automatic machine guns in video games couldn't exist in real life, because if you just spun around in a circle firing, everyone on the battlefield would die

    The first time I saw a black individual (at 3), I thought they were made from chocolate. Literally.

    When I was a kid I was told the Catholic Church was an important institution that helps people.

    I didn’t realize helping people meant raping kids and then covering it up for god knows how long.

    Mr. Gwasdoff - a very popular & well respected social studies/history teacher during middle school always told us only a white person could become president. I actually believed that.

    I believed as a kid the thing about 'wishing on a star'. I wished on a star one night but my wish didn't come true.
    I told my grandpa the next morning and he deadpanned 'you wished on the wrong one I guess.'
    rats!
