Misconceptions of Youth

When you’re growing up, sometimes you think things are a certain way for a reason. And later you find out that reason was horribly, terribly wrong. It’s time for me to fess up on my biggest one.

When I was little I’d watch sitcoms like I Love Lucy. I knew they were in black-and-white and new programs were in color. But when I was young, I thought – and I’m not kidding here – that color itself wasn’t invented until the 1960s.

I truly believed that the entire world was black-and-white until around 1963. Of course once I learned that this wasn’t the case, I felt a whole lot better. (I couldn’t explain color photographs, either.)

That’s mine; what’s yours?

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
