When you were a child, was there ever anything you saw other children do all the time that either made no sense to you or annoyed you? Does it still make no sense/annoy you, or do you know why they did it now?
I was always confused when kids were drawing, that the sky would be a blue stripe at the top of the page, and then empty space between the stripe and the ground. I mean, the sky clearly meets the ground at the horizon! Eventually I learned that other kids didn't think about things like horizons and perspective, so they were thinking "sky above me, ground below me", meanwhile I always knew about horizons and perspective, because my mother is an artist and taught me how to draw.
EDIT: Totally unrelated - have any of you ever travelled significant distances by ship, rather than by plane (such as across oceans)? If you have, please share your experiences.
