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.

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.

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.
