As a kid I believed that just like we saw the actors in the movies they were watching us. So, some of my unnecessary actions like a sudden smile or a karate pose or a whistle at a small girl could be understood now..

When I was about 4 or 5, I was playing the pots and pans (like I always did almost everyday). At the time, I was also watching Sesame Street when they said something like "what's that?" And of course as a kid, I thought that they were talking about how they could hear me playing the pots and pans. Let's just say that I never played the pots and pans ever again, out of fear that I would be overheard by the characters on the television.

When I was really young--from age 4 to about age 6, I think--I used to believe that the people pictured in newspapers could see me! I used to talk to them and pretend they were talking back. Where I got this idea, I'll never know.

When I was around ten, I had a huge (and I mean HUGE) batman poster in my bedroom. I knew that when I walked from one side of my bedroom to the other, his eyes would follow me. I remember standing in front of the poster moving quickly from one side to another, jumping up and down, crouching to see if his eyes were following me. And sure enough (at least in my head) he was.

I had to eventually take down the poster because at night, I could see him look at me. At first I thought, "good, hes watching out for me" but afterwhile, the more I looked, the more mean he got.

Still have the poster too, all wrapped up and hidden in my closet some 14 years later =)

When I was little, I used to believe that people were always, always looking at me: through windows, around corners, under whatever I was sitting on, you name it.

I also thought my parents set up invisible cameras to watch all of my actions and that my various pets had cameras in their eyes and reported everything I did to them (my parents). I was also dead certain that people were always reading my mind and recording my thoughts in order to use them against me later.

I was kind of a weird kid.

When I was three, I got the idea that my life was one big movie, and that somewhere, President Clinton was sitting all alone in a movie theater, watching it as it was happening.

When I was 6 I used to believe my parents were watching me at school on TV. It explained a lot at the time!

I used to think their was a family watching me on a TV when I was crying in my room(and at many other times) I would get upset at them laughing at me and smash up their TV. only problem was their dad was good at fixing TVs and they would watch me again so I smashed it again.

I used to belive the murderers on the news were out to get me. I also thought this about cartoons, movies, and basically all of T.V.

For the longest time, I believed that some people I knew had cameras in every mirror. My closet door has a huge mirror. For the longest time I changed in my sister's room so they couldn't see me naked.

When I was small i used to beleive that very where that I would go someone was watching me. I even thought that people would look at me through my mirors so everytime I would get changed I would hide myself so that no one could see me.

I used to believe that the guys off NSYNC could see me throught their posters on my wall, so I would keep my room really clean and change clothes in the closet so they wouldn't see me.

i also used to believe that i was being watched by people in the tv, but in my case it was far more serious than JUST the tv people. as a child i suppose i was something of a conspiracy theorist, i believed that someone (the "industry", kodak, the government or some other evil force) was putting tiny cameras inside the eyes of pictures and wall posters and that they could see me as well.

I am paranoid ever since I was young, so my older sister used to tell me that the government used to watch you through the television and listen through the smoke detector. You have no idea how many candles I had to blow out and how many times I yelled at my mother to turn off the television.

I thought that there were TV cameras everywhere, watching us all the time, and that only the funny cool people got on TV (this was in the '60s). My evidence? "The Dick Van Dyke Show" and, sadly, "Get Smart", were to me so obviously real that this must be true. I tried to be really hilarious and interesting as often as I thought of it so my family would be on tv too. Hey, I was REALLY young -- 5 and 6.

as a child watching soaps like dallas and falcon crest i used to think the only reason that people would let us watch their intimate moments was cause they were watching us too.i'd have periods were everything i did was done for the benefit of the secret audience in far away america!!!

When i was in my early teens, after watching so many action movies do to with spies, secret agents and crimials. my over active imagination made me to believe that my house was bugged, that there where cameras in the mirrors and speakers recording throughout the radios, tv and phonelines. This really freaked me out that i have never gotten over this possibility and still to this day believe in this.
