I get really paranoid about cameras. The ones at school, the ones at work, and the ones that I'm sure are there, I just can't see them. I get especially freaked about NannyCams. I babysit for a few kids and I'm convinced their parents have them and watch my every move when they get home. I can thank Malcolm in the Middle for that one...

I used to be afraid of changing clothes in front of the TV when I was little because I thought they could see me on the other side of the screen.

I used to believe that every poster on my wall was watching me, so i hid from them when i changed and was terrified that they'd tell people about me! I also thought that cameras were hidden everywhere, watching my every move. I still check for cameras whenever i have a bath or get changed!!!!

I believed there was a hidden camera in my teddy bear and that my kindergarten classmate who moved to Alaska could see me through it.

when i was a toddler, i saw ernest scared stupid and ernest was outside someone's door. they had a peephole and the camera was on the other side of the door looking outside. well to my surprise, ernest got REALLY close to the peephole, looked in it and it scared the hell outta me. i started crying. and everytime i would go to sleep, i would think that he is looking through my window.

top belief!

I used to think soap operas were people being spied on. So when my life got pretty dramatic I'd stick on a video to draw the attention away from me... just in case.

I was an active TV watcher as a kid. But, oddly, as a very small child, I was afraid of the set when it was switched off, especially if the room was darkened. I was somehow convinced that when the TV was off, it could watch ME. This was the era of big, ugly console TVs, and those huge cathode ray tubes that, when switched off, shrunk the picture down to a single raster line that would then slowly converge into a bright "dot" in the center of the screen. Maybe I thought that dot was an "eye" that could see me.

I also remember being freightened when technical difficulties would interrupt a program, and the sudden silence was broken by the repeated recorded sound of a stentorian basso voice proclaiming "PLEASE STAND BY!" I would almost pee my pants, and have to quickly change the channel.

Still to this day, I have a problem with pictures in bathrooms because I feel like they're watching me.

When I was a kid, I was thinking that we all are in a TV show and some strangers were watching us everyday. So I hate to go to the bathroom.

I used to believe that when someone was leaving a message on the answering machine that they could hear you like on the telephone. I wasnt supolsed to answer the phone when I was home alone, in case someone was calling to find out if I was alone and come kidnap me! Every time the phone rang and someone left a message, I would mute the TV and run to the next room terrified that someone could hear me and come and take me!

When we moved into our new house, I was convinced that my step-dad had cameras everywhere in the house to watch and make sure I wasn't doing anything bad while my parents were at work (he always seemed to know that I'd watched the satellite tv). I thought that the only safe place was in my closet, so I spent a lot of time in there. I also looked everywhere for the tell-tale blinking red light so that I could get rid of the cameras.

Of course, one day he told me that the tv could tell him everything I'd watched. I was much more paranoid after that.

I used to believe the people on my posters on my bedroom wall would get out of the pictures at night or when I'm out of the room. (that was a few years ago) I'm 14 now and now i wouldn't mind My Chemical Romance or just Gerard Way or Frank Iero coming out my posters. lol

A few years ago, i used to believe that if you had posters on your bedroom wall, the people on the posters where watching you and there where cameras in their eyes. Some times i still feel as if thats true.
