I used to think that cinemas needed a massive Dvd to slot in underneath the big screen when I was little so I always used to check when we went to the movies!

I used to argue with my mom about bedtime because kids my age were on the TV, so obviously THEY were allowed to stay up late. It never dawned on me that the shows were not live, but rather, were recorded.

I used to believe that when the t.v would say please stand by because of technical difficulties that if I stood next to the television set then I would help fix it.

I used to believe that there was an elf inside the TV changing the channels. It blew my mind when I realized that the TV still worked after bedtime, because I thought the elves would be tired.

Our youngest daughter used to think that that all movies and TV shows started out in color and then gradually faded into black and white by the time they were old.

I used to believe that if you looked on the side of the television when the news was on, you could see the rest of the newsroom. :)

I used to believe that we were actually all smurfs and would get nervous in new places because Gargamel might show up and I wouldn't know what to do.

I used to believe that when the movies or TV shows were playing, they were actually acting them out live. I was amazed at the memory power they had to do marathons, and to do their shows over again many times during the year.

I used to believe that all commercials on every channel were in English, even on the Spanish channels...until I watched it one day.

I remember watching old films on TV when I was young and seeing them in black and white. I didn't know that TV used to only broadcast in black and white, and I came to the conclusion that back in the 40s and 50s, the whole world was in black and white. I had images in my head of world war 2 and everything was in black and white. I remember asking my dad one day what it was like to see colour for the first time, or when colour was invented or something like that, and he had no idea what I meant.

What's even more peculiar is that as a child I went to Sunday school and remember being read bible stories, all of which I imagined in colour. So in my child's brain, I thought that colour was around, and was then forgotten about and invented again sometime in the 60s!

When Clinton was getting impeached, I thought they meant literally sticking him in a peach, and I imagined something along the lines of James and the Giant Peach.

I used to believe that every day tiny little people, with tiny suits and breifcases and costumes, came to my house to work in the TV.

I thought the laughter on TV was coming from people watching the show in their homes. To test it, I arranged to have my cousin watch the same program I was watching. During each pause for laughter (when the microphones would be on), I bellowed her name into the speaker to see if she'd hear me. She claimed she did.

When I was a little kid I believed that the weatherman controlled the weather. That's not too unreasonable- you're a little kid watching clouds and fronts move around on the map as the weatherman moves his hands! I was so mad when he made it rain on the weekend that my dad and I were supposed to go camping.

When I was little i used to believe that the T.V. was like a window, and if you looked farther over towards the edge of the screen you would see more.
