I used to believe that the tv station could monitor what I was watching. If a show came on that I didnt like I would quickly turn the channel, hoping they would cancel the show.

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*

I used to think that the pictures on my walls could acctually see me. This made me very nervous, especially when I had to change my clothes. In fact, I still get jittery changing in my bedroom.

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!

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.

I used to think that people in posters and photos could see you. For some reason this only applied to pictures that were hanging on walls. To this day I can't have posters in my room while I'm changing my clothes.

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.

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.

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 my parents watched sit-coms, i used think there was a little mirophone in the tv that recorded every1 at home that was watching laughing and played it on every tv that was on the channel.

I was only little, but whenever I was watching TV, it made me think that my whole life was also a TV show. As if people were watching me in a programme.
So I used to stand up randomly and do something funny, just so the viewers would like me more. Like Joey off Friends.

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

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!

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.

I used to think that there were cameras in the lights of my house, so that the girls from my class could watch me. So, I was very careful when going to the bathroom, or after a shower, or changing before bed.

I would either do this with the lights off or put on my boxers under my towel.

I did this from about the 2nd grade to about the 4th or 5th grade.

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.
