I used to think the people in posters would watch you and could talk and interact with you just like in real life. For a while I thought I Tobey Maguire was my best friend

Up untill about age 13 I used to have to get dressed in the bathroom. I could never get changed in my room becuase the posters of actors and rockstars were actually special portals that the people could watch their fans through. I'm still a little embarassed to be naked in front of my posters

when i was younger i used to belive that if you thought realy hard about someone that they would be able to see you and everything you were doing. So whenever i was about to do something bad i would think about what my mom was thinking as she watched me doing it.

I used to believe that my dog had video cameras implanted in her eyes and that every spot little on the wall or ceiling was also a camera or a secret hole through which my parents could spy on me. I'm not sure whether I actually believed this or whether it was merely my imagination at work, but I was alway cautious not to do anything "bad" in front of my dog.

dont you ever wonder how portrait paintings look as if they can follow you with their eyes no matter where you position yourself in a room? same with photographs. when we visit museums it would take us 6 hours max. i used to test this idea with EVERY painting in the museum.

I watched a show on urban legends once, and one of the stories mentioned was about a hotel that equiped all of its bathrooms with "see-through" mirrors (the mirrors that are actually windows) and that people were watching on the other side. However, I thought an urban legend was defined as a real event at the time, so whenever I stayed in a hotel, I avoided going to the bathroom and was sly when taking a shower because I was afraid people could see me through the mirror.

This is sad, when i was about 10, I had all these Harry Potter posters in my room and i used to think that they could see me when i was getting changed, so i refused to get changed in my room.

my friend came over one day and we were getting changed and she kept saying that the characters on the posters could see me getting changed, eventually i ended up halfway down the hallway ages from my room and i still thought that the posters could see me. I took them down after that

I used to believe that there was someone "working" inside of the TV set that sat there and changed the channels when I turned the knob. I would spin the knob around really fast trying to confuse them, but they always got it right. Mom told me that they could see me, too, so I should get dressed before I sat down in front of the TV so that I wouldn't be seen in my PJ's.

I used to think the television newscasters could see and hear me. I thought they were going to tell my teachers everything I did. I never got dressed in front of them. Ever.

after watching the Truman Show i always analyze the little stuff that look like cameras. one day when i was 9 years old i took my digital camera and threw it out the window and looked at the sky and yelled to the "director" of my show (the Jenna Show xP) that i want to get out of this fake world and yadda yadda.... my parents grounded me baaaad bcs the camera was worth a LOT of money and they took me to the psychiatrist. I still find myself looking at strange objects and wonder wether EVERYONE is watching me right now (im 14 yrs old)

I used to believe that there was cameras all around People's houses(including mines) and that poeple could buy a special machine.In the machine you write the name of a person and you can see whatever the person was doing in their house. For 5 years I was afraid to do anything embarassing in my house because of the fear that someone was watching me.
