Throughout my childhood until I was about, oh I'd say age 10, I always belived that the laughter I was hearing on the TV during certain programs, such as sitcoms, was coming from other peoples homes as they too watched the same show. Who knew there was a such thing as a "live studio audience?"
Whenever they would say "This show is brought to you by..." Since I never actually saw the words on the screen, and they just said them, I didn't realize that "brought to you" was 3 separate words. I thought it was one long fancy word that I wouldn't understand until I was older. It sounded like they were saying "bra-tah-yoo" or something. Heheh.
Finally one day they actually put the words on the screen, and I went "Ohhhh!"
I used to believe people on tv could hear me. That's why, like they never answered me, I hated all of them. And no, I'm not ashamed!
que les gens à la télé pouvait nous entendre. Je les trouvais très mal poli, ils ne me répondaient jamais.
I used to think that if I watched too much TV, I would forget how to read. Sometimes when I was sick and had spent the whole day in front of the TV, I would grab a book to check if my reading skills had worsened.
When I was about 5 or 6, I was watching the Disney Channel before I went to bed. When I woke up the next morning and turned on the tv, the same show was on. this led me to believe that when you turn off the tv, it pauses and you can watch it later if you turn the tv back on. I only believed this for a few months.
When I was little, I was scared to death of sleeping infront of a TV that was turned off. I thought that when the TV was off, a giant humanoid space ant would crawl out, and drag you back into the TV. It got so bad that I ran down the hallway screaming once and I peed on the carpet.
I used to think that a guy would sit in a big circular room with light switches underneath every tv channel screen. When the time came he would switch the switch for commercials. But he would sometimes make mistakes which was why some commercials were so short.
I was about 5 years old when my grandmother was interviewed on t.v. I freaked out & thought she was trapped in the television; I was inconsolable for the rest of the night.
I used to believe, when I was little, that if i sat close enough to the TV (like with my face right on the tv) and I looked up, down or on the sides I'd be able to see more.
I used to belive that if u tried to look closely into the side of the TV, you would be able to see the rest of the picture
I used to think if you busted the TV the inside would be like a milky substance.
I also used to think people on TV didn't know they were on TV that a camera was following them around.
When I was a kid i used to believe that loads of tiny little people lived inside my tv....and every time I turned on the tv they would hold pictures up to the screen. They would change the pictures really quickly, faster than the naked eye could see, to make stories and tv programs for me to watch.
I was 14 when I figured out that cable tv is not a free public service and that it costs money.
I used to think that the shows on TV (even cartoons!!!!) were all happening at the same time i was watching them.
when i was younger i used to try and hatch a plan on how i could get into the tv! i thought if i smashed a little hole in the corner of the screen i wouldnt get wrong because they would be happy i was on the telly lol...strange i know
I used to think tv shows are 'installed' into the tv of each country.
So when I went oversea, I though I should have brought my own country's tv so that I'll be able to watch the local shows back home.
My heros are Mike Myers, Verne Troyer and Carlos Mencia. They are my heros because I want to be a comedian when I grow up. (Duh! look at my name)
Any way some kind of way i got my nephew Justin liking them and he's 8 going on 9. I used to trick him by saying "If you touch are talk to them on the tv they'll responed back to you." He used to try to talk to the "TV People" as he would call it all the time and I was just cracking up! He just now learned the truth (Ha Ha, I'm so bad!)
When I was 5 years old, my friend's mom told us that if we watched to much tv, our eyes would turn square, and they would never go back to normal shape! I was so scared, and we didn't watch much tv after that...
When I was little and watched shows like Sesame Street and Barney, I understood that the characters were really people in costumes. But I also thought that it was VERY hard to memorize lines, and so they would have the script taped up inside their costume, so they could just read it during the show instead of actually learning their lines. I also thought this about regular television shows... whenever a person on a show acts like they are reading something, they are actually reading their next line.
