I don't know whether or not this is a Scrund but ...

When I was younger I used to think something (a scrund) that I wouldn't have thought if I were someone else.

What is it? (might be a quickie)

"Someone else" - someone specific? A member of a certain group? Someone who isn't a member of a group, to which you belong? Is of a different nationality? Religion (or lack thereof)? Race? Gender? Generation?

From what you can see in my profile, can you tell whether it's likely/possible that I may have had this scrund? That I definitely would not have?

I see from your profile that you come from Ireland - has the scrund, by any chance, got anything to do with conflicts in Northern Ireland? Any of the combatants in these conflicts? The peace process?

Was the scrund about the group of people to which the "someone else" belonged but you didn't?

Is the scrund about a religion? A race? A nationality?

Would the scrund have been avoided if you...
were familiar with the teachings of the other religion?
were familiar with the history of the other nationality?
were familiar with the culture (non-religious) of the other nationality?
were familiar with the customs (non-religious) of the other nationality?
knew people of the other race?
were raised by people of the other race?

Is there one specific other religion? race? nationality?
Or was the scrund something that only people of your specific religion, race, and nationality could have had?

For what it's worth...I wasn't assuming that the scrund had anything to do with any of those things. You said that religion, race, and nationality are things that separate the "someone else" from you. So I was checking to see whether knowledge they would have gained from any of those differences would help them avoid the scrund. Does that distinction change any of your answers to my above questions?

Or is the "someone else" members of an organization that happens to consist of people who are all a different religion, race, and nationality from you? But the difference is membership in the organization, rather than any of the demographic factors that happen to define the group members?

Ok this is getting confusing. I'll give you a hint. This someone else is not a human. So there's no need anymore to talk about different organisations or nationalities. Sorry for not being clear!

Canary in a coal mine relevant?
Big Bird?
Dodo birds?
Penguins?
Ostriches? Does it have to do with ostriches in cartoons hiding by sticking their heads in the sand?
Some other flightless bird?

So, if you were a bird, you would have understood something about flight that, as a human child, you did not? Were you, as a human, correct? Or would the bird's understanding of flight be more correct?

Does it have to do with gravity? Flapping wings? Feathers? The reason one would have for flying? Whether humans can fly?

I never said they couldn't; does the scrund have to do with whether humans can fly?

So, if you were a bird, you wouldn't think this? Is that just because birds don't tend to have many complex thoughts?

Does it have to do with a certain aspect of flying? Such as: taking off? Landing? Diving? Soaring?
Fear of heights? Fear of something else?
Would it not work with the other listed animals because of:
Different types of wings? Different size? Different ways of flying? How high they can fly? Different anatomy?
This is probably not it, but: Did you think the claws were the birds' "hands" and the wings their "feet" anatomically speaking?

Did you think that there was a limit to how fly a bird could fly (that wasn't true)? Like, they couldn't fly higher than the clouds?

Or, did you think they could fly higher than they could? Like, to the sun? Did the scrund involve a fundamental confusion about the sun, moon, stars, or other objects in the sky? Did you think bird flight was affected by these things?

Was the scrund about what things look like from above? The size/placement of objects in the sky? Something to do with air currents?
Would going up in an airplane and looking out the windows correct your scrund? How about jumping out of one? ;-)

Could it be said that your scrund was about airplanes?
When a plane flies overhead at high altitude, its noise appears to be coming from a location behind the airplane because of the time the sound takes to travel to the ground. When I was little, I thought this happened because the plane was supersonic. Something like this relevant?

How they fly? How they do a specific manouver?
How high they fly?
How fast they fly?
How fast they climb?
The noise they make?
How big they are?
How close to birds they fly?
Condensation trails?
Jets? Propellers?

Was the scrund about:
How they fly? How they do a specific manouver?
How high they fly?
How fast they fly? YES!!!
How fast they climb?
The noise they make?
How big they are?
How close to birds they fly?
Condensation trails?
Jets? Propellers?
Was the scrund about helicopters as well?

All else no

Did you think birds flew faster that airplanes? Because if you looked at a bird an and airplane in the sky, the birds apparent speed was higher because of the perspective?

Did you think they went: faster than they do? Slower than they do? Was the scrund about anything else to do with airplanes, in addition to their speed?

Did you, when you saw a low-flying airplane pass you in seconds, think that the plane could circle the Earth in a minute or so?

All else no!

**********SPOILER**********

When I was younger when being in an aeroplane I thought it was going quite slow (compared to the clouds), less than a car would go. While in fact they go approx. 500 - 600 mph! Well thanks for doing the puzzle and...

I had the same scrund as a child. In fact, I remember that was the only question I got wrong on my first grade Standards of Learning tests.
