A friend told me and my sister that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone had permission to kill anyone they wanted. We asked our big brother and he told this was not true.

When I was quite young, I use to think TB shots (for tuberculosis) were TV shots, and you got them so if you watched too much television you wouldn't get TV eyes, like in the kids' book The Boy with Square Eyes.

When I was little I thought earthquakes were caused by space shuttles taking off nearby, because of the way the camera would shake on TV when one did.

Let me say, I was a weird kid. Besides thinking that tornadoes shot bombs, My brother wants told me that animators have to draw everything, so I thought that they had to draw every picture the second before it came up on my screen, like it was live. I tried to figure this out, and ended up with the conclusion that they had a long line of people already drawing the picture before it came up on the tv.

When I was about four or five years old, I believed that if you looked behind the TV while you were watching a movie, you'd see a portal to the universe/world the movie takes place in. I'd always look behind the TV, hoping that I'd eventually see the portal.

I'm not sure if they still do, but PBS at least used to conclude a lot of shows with, "... is brought to you by the corporation for public broadcasting, and by viewers like you." I assumed Viewers Like You was just another company of some kind.

When I was a kid, our local news was read by a woman named Christa Ackroyd - but I misheard her name as Christa Asteroid. Using this piece of evidence along with the fact that she knew all about the newsworthy events that were going on around Yorkshire, she must be an alien with special powers. When she was reading the news, she was telling us what she'd been using her superpowers for that day - eg. if there had been a murder she would have caught the murderer, if there had been a flood she would have brought all the people to safety.
But she didn't like to brag about that, she just told us what had been going on.

When I was a kid, my mom was the first to tell me about the "ball drop" in New York on New Year's Eve. I'd never seen the ball drop before, so I assumed it meant that someone standing on the roof of a building in Times Square would throw the ball into the crowd below! I was watching TV before the ball drop started and they mentioned that the ball weighed over 10,000 pounds. I was alarmed, because throwing something that size into a crowd would kill people! Luckily, my preconceptions were wrong. There is no throwing, and the "drop" is actually a controlled descent.

The TV guide showed "To Be Announced" for the hour when my favorite show came on. I used to believe that "To Be Announced" was just another name for that show, and got excited when I saw it in other places.

I used to think live-action films and television programs were acutally computer-made, so there were not real people there.

When I was young (3-5) I thought that if you broke the tv screen that you could go and live in the movie. One time I decided I wanted to live in Charlie and the chocolate factory (old one lt was about 2003) I almost did it to with a rock...I'm glad I didn't do it and I still don't know why I thought that

When I was a small girl the old "batman" series was on TV.there was one episode in which one of the villans abducted Batman ib order to remove his "cowl" (the part of his costume that covered his face) and I thought they said his "cow" and I thought that was another word for face.The next day my dad scratched his cheek so I asked him if he had hurt his cow, thinking how sophisticated I sounded.He gave me a blank look and after many questions he figured out what was going on and "cow" for face becane a running joke in my family all thanks to me.

My mom took a Balkan folkdancing class when I was around 6.we watched Star Trek a lot so I got mixed up and thought she had said Vulcan folkdancing. Mom said the dancing was very energetic so I always imagined those stoic Vulcans really chtting loose for once Mr Spock leaping high in the air and clicking his heels!

I picked up the words from a science show on TV, something like, "atoms are alive and everything is made up of atoms". From there my mind (age 5) decided all things, from rocks to trees, to my stuffed animals and Raggedy Ann, are alive (have spirits and feelings). And honestly, in a way, I really never lost that belief!

I used to think that the best newsman would become president. Why else would adults watch the news so carefully?
