When my friend was little, she would watch the news and think that the news people were talking to her! She would say leave me alone! Don't talk to me!and run all over the house. Then she would peek at the t.v and start running.

When I was a kid, I used to think I was starring in my own TV show. I even used to slowly turn around and smile as if I was in some cheesy opening credits. I would narrate too.

When I was 7 or 8 I couldn't always fall asleep when I was supposed to, and I would be terrified when the TV station went off the air and I was the only one still awake, because I thought the announcer (who had this big booming mean-sounding voice) was talking to me and could see if I was sleeping or not. Usually I would pull the covers up over my head so I couldn't see the TV, but unfortunately I could still hear it. After the "good night" announcement, they would play the national anthem (with a film of jet fighters flying through the air, etc.). Then after the anthem was over, they would fade back to the TV station logo for a few seconds (presumably to check one last time if I was sleeping like a good little boy) before cutting to static for the rest of the night.

top belief!

When I was younger I had loads of posters of my favourite celebrities on my walls in my bedroom. When I was getting dressed I thought they were watching me, whichever way I went it seemed like their eyes were following me. I was very uncomfortable with them "watching" me so I used to get a little bit of blu-tack and stick it over their eyes and take it off when I'd finished getting dressed! It took a long time to cover them all but I think it was worth it! :-)

Up until I was about 12 years old, I believed adamantly that an audience lived in my bathtub. So whenever I went to the bathroom I would hold my own little talk shows, reading out of magazines, books, or even from the back of shampoo bottles!

i used to think that my life was a telivision show on a channel that i couldnt get to with my remote control. I would always make sure i looked good before i came out of my bathroom and would constantly look around for the cameras i knew were there!

I used to have posters on my wall of all my celebrity crushes like JTT and leonardo dicaprio and when I was in my room either getting ready, cleaning, or dancing, I would do everything so cautiously because I thought secretly they could see me and I wanted them to like me!

I used to think that TV was real and that there were cameras hidden everywhere filming everyone and what they were doing to make TV.

Remember how when you shut off those old tube-type TVs, the picture would shrink down vertically to a thin line, then horizontally until there was just a "dot" in the center of the blank screen? (A dot that could persist for quite some time.) Well, when I was very young, I thought that the dot was an "eye" and that the TV could spy on me when it was off. This is probably why I watched so much TV as a kid -- as long as it was on and there was a picture, I felt safe, but especially early in the morning or late at night, if I entered a room with a TV that wasn't on, I got scared.

I believed that if you had a picture of someone, they could see you also. I always wondered why I couldn't see into anyones houses like they were looking at mine. Even into my teenage years I was wierded out by pictures and covered them up so I wouldn't be watched. I am still not totally comfortable.

My friend across the street told me (and I believed for a long time) that Native Americans lived on the nearby hills, and were listening to everyone with powerful tape recorders and other fancy spy gadgets. If a child cursed, the Indians would tell their parents about it.

Needless to say, I was relieved to find out this was false.

I used to believe that in order to get the raitings of how many people watched their show, spys would go to every house, every hour and peek into the windows to see what people watched. When ever the clock said that it was 5:59 etc. I would look out the window trying to catch the spys. My sister asked me what I was doing, and I was conviced that the spys weren't there because she talked too loud, and they heard her.

I used to believe that people who were on the television had a screen in front of them where they could see everyone who was watching them - I used to hide behind the sofa if I didn't want them to know I was watching.

I used to think that, whenever I took a bath, I was the star of my own TV show. (The TV show was always being taped, but it was a talk show when I was bathing.) I would take two hours or more in the bath, until the water was very cold. I was very sad when I started taking showers...no more show.

When I was little I used to believe that whenever a lightbulb was not on, it turned into an eye which could see me, big brother style... And insisted on turning lights on everywhere I went. I only got to sleep with the light off when I was 13!
