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.
When I looked at the TV Guide I thought To Be Announced was actually a show that was on for three or four hours at a time. I also thought it was a religioius show for some reason.
I used to believe that Reuters (News Agency) was the surname of one single journalist, as I would always here “Reuters reports that or Reuters this” and I use to wonder how can he manage to visit all those places and events and write all that news and I thought he was like superhero.
I used to believe that if you unplugged the telly, your show would be paused for you and be waiting for you at just that spot when you returned home...
When I was little I thought the people on TV could hear me just like I could hear them. During game shows I would crouch next to the speaker and whisper things like "It's Number Three...Number Three!" Then I would get mad when they didn't pick the answer I told them to choose.
When I was little, I wanted a two-story house and EVERY television show I watched had one in it. I tried to cut the TV open with a pair of scissors.I got in BIG trouble and we had to get it repaired.
When I was a kid, the logo for channel 12 was an oval with the letters "WHYY" in it, and occasionally the station would show the logo and play music. I used to believe that the logo was actually a small dark-colored man with the logo as his head, and I was in mortal danger whenever the music would start to play. I was so afraid that he would come out and drag me into the TV! Needless to say, I never watched channel 12.
i used to believe tv was real so i believed monstors on Doctor who were really going to invade earth and we were all going to die because in my eyes all programs were the news, i was relieved when my mother told me it was fiction
I used to believe that if you broke a T.V. screen you could walk into the television show.
when i was 5 or 6 my cousin told me that if you got to close to the TV when you where watching it vampires would come out of it and they would try to get you but noone could help you. I didn't watch TV for about 4 weeks after that.
My grandmother told me when I was a child that, if I watch too much television my eyes would become permanently locked on the screen and I would “be stuck like that forever”. SO, whenever I watched TV or movies, I would divert my eyes every 3 or 4 minutes or so – either by closing them, hiding beneath a pillow or standing up in the middle of the room and facing the other way. There are whole swaths of children’s movies that I still have no idea how they ended or who most of the characters were.
When I was a preschooler, I had to go with my mother to the grocery store on day. I didn't want to leave because I was watching cartoons on t.v. I figured out that if I turned the t.v. off, I would be able to watch the rest of the cartoon when I came home and turned the t.v. back on. When I got back home, I told my mother that I couldn't find the channel that my cartoon was supposed to be on. When she broke the news about the situation, I was devastated.
Remember the emergency alert system? How it would always say, "This is a test. Had this been a real emergency, this alarm would be followed by safety instructions" or something to that effect? As a kid I never EVER heard them say, "It's for real this time, no fooling around!" So naturally I assumed it was the government's practical joke on us and that the president and all his men were sitting in their offices giggling at how stupid we were.
