Stupid things you thought as a kid - we were all dumbasses when we were kids

That's a great calvin and hobbs comic if you haven't read it OP. Not first to think that.

As a child I was lost on the concept of percentages. Something happens or it doesn't how can't it be 50/50? .

This should be a fun thread, hope it takes off. The way kids think is often adorable and sometimes baffling.

Between the ages of 3 and 8 I believed that the word "rape" (as i would hear on the news or in films/tv watched by my older relatives) was actually "rake" and thus whenever the news or TV was talking about somebody being raped (or "raked" as i heard it), I just assumed it meant they had the shit beaten out of them with a rake.

Needless to say my parents pissed themselves in decidedly uncomfortable laughter when we watched a certain simpsons epiosde together for the first time and i loudly announced "sideshow bob is being raped!"
