    When I was a kid I thought the world was going

    to blow up by a comet or something. I was watching that 2012 world ending video on YouTube and was terrified. This was when I was 9 or maybe 12. After a couple years I didn't want 2012 to come because of that video. When the year came I was like...oh wow, I'm a complete idiot...

    Breastfeeding: When I was a child,

    I thought that since white women had white breast milk....that black women must have chocolate milk. And that red-haired women had strawberry milk. One of my more brilliant childhood theories.
