Misconceptions I Had As A Child

  1. Traffic lights were controlled by control rooms filled with people pressing buttons and making the lights switch.
  2. I was convinced Diet Coke was for adults only.
  3. The ATM gave out money.
    I never understood why my parents didn't just get more money out of the ATM whenever they wanted.
  4. I always thought that dogs were boys and cats were girls.
    It didn't help that I had boy dogs and girl cats until I was about 12.
  5. I thought people who died in movies really died in real life.
    I thought the makers of the movie just found a bunch of people who were ready to end it all and willing to be killed on film.
  6. I liked Nickelback...
