12 grappige dingen die je denkt als kind, die later helemaal niet blijken te kloppen
Iedereen kent het ze wel: die gedachten die je had als kind, waar uiteindelijk niets van bleek te kloppen. Zoals dat in die fabrieken met pijpen waar witte stoom uitkwam de wolken gemaakt werden.

I didn’t understand that “meets the eye” was a phrase. I thought it was a single word or some kind of acronym, like RBI, for a government organization. I thought when you said something was “more than meets the eye” you were saying it was more powerful than the government.

I thought ‘prosecuted’ meant ‘executed’ so signs saying “Trespassers Will Be Prosecuted” meant they would be shot by a firing squad

I thought it really used to be a black and white world in the old days.
