Embarrassing Childhood Facts

I thought that cyberspace was a real place and, as such, things like computer viruses physically existed and could enter our world. Our computer was in the living room, and I'd always look away when passing it at night.

When I first got into the net and something had a notice like "for fans only" if I listened/looked at it and I wasn't really a fan someone would actually come to my house and arrest me.

I though left and right were synonymous with East and West. I didn’t understand that someone facing you has the opposite left and right.

When I was very young (before preschool) I thought "a year" was an interval of time that occured between summer and fall. The seasons themselves occured outside of the year, and were their own separate thing. I don't know where I got this in my head.
Madness or brilliance? I honestly can't decide.

I thought adults know and can assure everything so I kept being so obedient that even a well-tamed doggo was more defiant than me.

This.
Right here.
Blew my fucking mind as a kid.
Took me at least a day to wrap my head around it.

Also!

I felt the need to question magic in movies an obnoxious amount of times. For example, "Why did santa fall off the roof? How did he get on the roof? If he's immortal how did he die? Where did the body go?"

Thrashing About
As a 4 year-old kid, I loved being lifted up by my uncle. So every time he'd come visit, I'd run up to him and ask him to carry me.

Spanish is my first language, and I had trouble pronouncing my Rs, let alone roll them, when I was young.

My uncle was the definition of a prankster. Asking him to carry me always ended with him turning around and faking a fart on my head.

I'll let the Spanish speakers figure this one out.

For the longest while after watching countless movies of people and Disney characters falling in love, kissing passionately, and then shown having a baby, I'd assumed that pregnancy was caused by passionate kissing!!!
The longer and deeper the kiss, the more likely you were going to have a baby. Little pecks were clearly safe though, so I was able to kiss my grandparents and sister/mother without worrying about their health though.

I thought it hurt men to orgasm.
I would only ever hear people swear when they were mad or hurt so when I discovered porn around 11... yea.
That's just something people would say to keep boys from touching themselves like it'll make you go blind or have all you hair fall out.

I thought bones were made of stone when I was 7....... (Someone in my class actually called me stupid when I did not know it at the time.) I also got in trouble for pointing at something with middle finger around that age not knowing it was an insult. By the way this happen at two different schools and that was due to me moving around a lot when I was younger. (I was such an innocent child when I was younger.)
