Childhood is undoubtedly the happiest time of our life. As a kid, we always wished to grow up faster, escape school and do whatever we want to do. We cherish our childhood moments only when we grow up to become an adult. We even wish to go back and relive our childhood days because it was the best part of our life, no worries, living in a world of imagination, trying to figure how things work. We never really understand how the real world works when we are kids. The result? We end up imagining completely random stuff, and start to believe in them. We all had those misunderstandings and misconceptions in our childhood. Read fifteen dumb things people thought were true, when they were kids.

When we first got a car with electric windows, my sister and I couldn't figure out how the windows went down.

My sister and I tried for ages to get the windows down by voice, and he kept telling us we were saying it wrong.
