being watchedShow most recent or highest rated first.
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.
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 about 5, I thought that if I talked in the mirror I was on one of those TV shows where the person narrated their own life.
I used to believe that there were camera's all in my room that my parents set up so they could see what I was doing. I would always be so good and do good things, but if I wanted to do something my parents wouldnt like, I would hide under my covers and do it.
I used to believe that cameras were everywhere. I mean EVERYWHERE, even in my room, in the shower, at school- Ok, well its normal to have cameras at school... But anyway, when i talked to my friend about it, i got over it.
When we moved into our new house, I was convinced that my step-dad had cameras everywhere in the house to watch and make sure I wasn't doing anything bad while my parents were at work (he always seemed to know that I'd watched the satellite tv). I thought that the only safe place was in my closet, so I spent a lot of time in there. I also looked everywhere for the tell-tale blinking red light so that I could get rid of the cameras.
Of course, one day he told me that the tv could tell him everything I'd watched. I was much more paranoid after that.
When I was a kid, I was thinking that we all are in a TV show and some strangers were watching us everyday. So I hate to go to the bathroom.
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.
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....
untill i was in 8th grade, i use to belive that the people in the tv and in pictures could see you. i was so scared of posters and pitcures i refused to put any up in my room , and i turned over magizanes when i got undressed at night.
On a message board one time, a guy was trying to convince everyone that the FBI could see you through your computer monitor, which is why he covered it every time the computer wasn't being used.
He then went on to a long technical explanation of how and why the FBI would do such a thing.
I would think it was some kid posting the message, but this was on a high security locksmith forum my father posts on.
Imagine. How retarded can you get? The guy had to be at least 45 years old, as well.
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 once watched this show where they put hidden cameras around the house to see if someone was breaking the law as reported by next door neighbors. They placed their cameras inside a "blinking" alarm clock.
Everytime I see a VCR with a "blinking" 12:00, I would instantly think that someone is watching me, so I would always cover it up with something, so that they couldn't see me.
I used to believe that every one watched me... like i would live my life, and do regular stuff and people would go on with there business... but i always had that feeling that every time i turned around every "thing" would watch me... like my reflection, and then when i turned around they would be normal! I grew out of that but it sort of still feels like it!
I used to think my sister's Blink 182 poster was staring at me went I was changing. I actually glared at it and told it I knew it was watching me. Also, my cousin told me that this picture of this creepy lady-- it was the kind where her eyes follow you-- would know if I went in the room without my cousin's permission... creepy.
I used to believe that my dog had video cameras implanted in her eyes and that every spot little on the wall or ceiling was also a camera or a secret hole through which my parents could spy on me. I'm not sure whether I actually believed this or whether it was merely my imagination at work, but I was alway cautious not to do anything "bad" in front of my dog.
Whenever I went to sporting events as a kid, I would get so confused by the different sections that the arena had. I thought that the players played individually for each different section, and I never understood that we were all watching the same game.
when i was young we lived in an apartment that had a hole in the wall above the shower. Someone had hung something there at one point. It terrified me and i thought there was a person behind it who watched me shower. My dad eventually ran a deoderant stick over it to cover. Every once in a while i would add to. There was an odd orange stain there until the day we moved.
I use to think that the people on the posters in my room would watch me, so I would always feel weird getting dressed in there.
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.
