Well, ever since I was 10, I never wanted to get changed in my room. Why? I believed that all of the anime guys (I'm an anime freak, fan of Kyou Sohma from Fruits Basket and Yusuke Urameshi from YuYu Hakusho) in the pictures on my wall would see me, therefor I got extremely embarassed and would never change unless I was in the bathroom. I'm 12 now, and to this day I won't change in my room.

When I was around 7 I was freaked out by the posters on my walls. No matter which angle I was at, they were still looking at me....

Once, when I was about four, I saw a really fat kid on Reading Rainbow, and told my mom I thought he was fat. My mom told me not to say that, because people in the TV could hear everything you say. For three years, whenever a friend said something bad about a person or show on the TV, I would tell them that the actors' feelings would be hurt, because they could hear you. I finally found out the truth, when I told this to a friend when her mother was in the room, and the mom laughed and explained that they couldn't hear us, but that didn't mean we should say rude things about them.

When I was younger I was so convinced that someone was watching me in my room that I wouldn't get changed in my room and everytime I went in there I would say something ridiculuos like I know your in there. And everytime I started acting odd my sisters would say stop showing off to the invisible friends....
but I do believe that government is watching my every little move...

When I was little I used to think that the actors in soap operas were real families and that my family were also on TV somewhere in the world.

This started when I was about 11. I had these heartthrob posters on my wall. (My favorite was Shaun Cassidy.) Well, I would not get undressed in front of them, because I thought he could see me. This lasted way into my teens.

I used to believe that, no matter where you were, someone was watching you. I would try and look my best at all times, and I would even talk to myself, saying that I loved them.

When I was younger, I always thought the posters in my room could see me. i would look them in the eye and it always looked like they were looking right at me where ever I was standing. Because of that, I was always afraid to change in front of them, I'd get dressed in my closet.

You know when they say on shows around how many people are watching? Well I used to believe that they had hidden cameras in every T.V, so just to annoy them, I would make faces and tell them that I hated the show.

My parents must have thought I was crazy, talking to the t.v!

I used to think that those people who did the television surveys counted viewing figures by looking into your living room, through the t.v. It was a little hard to take when I was 12, and used to stay up late at night any foreign film with a bit of tittie in it.

I used to believe the people in pictures could see out at you. I still feel creeped out when I'm in my room and I have a poster with a person that's looking out. I don't feel scared if their eyes are looking off to the right or left or something, but I my sister has a Lord of the Rings picture with four of the actos looking straight out, and I got so creeped out a few nights ago I turned it opposite because I was just about to change.

I love LOTR *does happy dance*

my mum used to record things off the telly and then stick a label on so we'd know what was on it.

I used to believe that the TV worked both ways. So the presenters were facing hundreds of TV screens on which they could see the living rooms of all the people watching them.

I used to think that there were cameras everywhere, watching you all the time. Even in your house and in your bedroom and bathroom.
