Things we’re told are real but they aren’t, not really

The obvious is Father Christmas and the tooth fairy. Not real.

Then we get onto lava, and quicksand (neither exist despite the videos we saw as children, lava isn’t really a thing imo and quicksand is just wet sand and no one’s ever gotten stuck in it really).

Third is pigeons, which is a bit trickier. Technically real in the sense we’ve all seen them, but they aren’t what we think they are (not birds, actually spy robots, no I won’t be having this discussion again).

Magnets I’m on the fence about.

Any others?

I saw a badger walking down the street walking really ealy in the morning after I’d finished a night shift. Walked straight past me, I was too tired to fully appreciate the moment.

There’s quite a lot of “villages” in this country that aren’t real but somebody has gone to the trouble of building real train stations for the fake places.

“The next station is Harrietsham” - yeah, alright mate, sure…
