Childhood could be seen as one of the most adorable periods of a person’s life. The time when children start to ask and learn various things about the world is very important. And usually, it brings a lot of fun to adults who try to explain and share their knowledge as best as possible. I guess we all remember times when we struggled to understand certain matters. Having this in mind, Twitter user @ExileGrimm asked people what was the dumbest belief they had when they were kids. The tweet got more than 93k likes and almost 7k retweets.

The Twitter user started the thread by sharing her own belief that birds grew from bird seeds and that she even managed to prove this to be right. In the comments, people also shared their own beliefs that they soon understood to be nonsense. Even though these thoughts were false assumptions, now they make thousands of people laugh and think of their own funny childhood stories.

I thought people who spoke English were just faking it and everyone's native language was Ukrainian.

My father actually told me what Roxanne was actually about when I was young, but I didn't know what a prostitute was at the time.

Understandable. 1 is the smallest-100 is the largest. It's a unit of measurement that children can relate to..

For me, I thought there was a black and white period, a low-resolution period, and a normal one.

I always thought when a woman threw up she was pregnant immediately after. This was thought when i was 6 or 7. Every time i threw up after that i sobbed. 🤷🏻‍♀️

When I heard the term "Great depression" the first time I thought it was because evrybody was really unhappy with how things were going. They never explained it here in the UK fully in history lessons. They just said "and at that time America was going through the great depression."
