Tell me something that you thought for years only to find out you were wrong

Until yesterday, I thought yams and sweet potatoes were the same thing. I’ve never seen them uncooked and they look and smell the same when they’re cooked:/

Everyone’s a going to laugh at me but I grew up closely to my older sister and I was influenced by her music. One her favorites being Queen! I thought Freddie Mercury was his real name!!! I never thought it was his stage name!!

As a kid I thought that you could only have a baby if you were married. As in something about that marriage meant you could say now I want one. I didn’t understand people could have trouble making them or that you were able to before marriage

When I was younger, I said "fire fire" instead of fire fighter. And "war war" instead of World War.

They are, with the caveat: All yams are sweet potatoes, but not all sweet potatoes are yams.

That the 1970 Plymouth Roadrunner had a 383 cubic inch engine with 345 hp. Two days ago I learned it was a 335 hp engine.
