When I was maybe 5 or 6, I used to believe that whatever channel I turned the television to would appear on every single television in the whole world. I would randomly flick through the channels or switch to a boring TV station if I felt like making the world mad.

I've never actually had Sky TV and the first time I saw it was at my then boyfriend's house (now my fiance), only about 5 years ago so I was early 20s. Anyway I thought when the menu comes up and you can see what's on later on that day, that you could just go to that programme and watch it, even if it's not on til later that day. What an idiot!

Amazingly he's still marrying me even though I'm clearly totally stupid.

When I was a young teen in the late 40's, tv was a new thing to most households. While watching an old Western shoot-em-up, I asked my mom how they got someone to take the pictures when electricity hadn't been invented yet. I didn't realize they were actors on a set in more modern times.

When I was youger, I used to believe that if you put the side of your face to the TV screen, you would be able to see everything else that they weren't showing you on the screen...like if there was a tree branch on TV, if I put the side of my face to the screen I would be able to see the WHOLE tree.

Once I watched a Shania Twain concert on TV and I thought if I turned the volume up it told her to sing louder.

I used to believe that when you watched tv whenever the shot was changed to a different camera that the operator would quickly pull out the tape and throw it to the next person who had the next shot.

I used to believe that the news reader on TV in the 80s (Lenon Parkin I think her name was) was called Lemon Parker! She came on the TV and mum asked me in front of others "who's she" and everyone laughed and I didn't know what was so funny!

when i was young i thought there was a long long tube at the back of the tv, through which 'tv families' and all the folks on tv would walk each morning to get to work and when they were through it - they'd fit in the box... like shrinking as they walked...

I babysat a child who told me the tv watched him and would tell on him when he did something bad. Perhaps his parents told him that, or he got that from a kid's show where the host said "hello" or "happy birthday" to a child with the same name. It made him a very well behaved child.

When I was about 4 I believed that when you watched a show or movie that had a laugh track. It was people at home laughing and was being broadcast all over the world. So I started talking very loudly into my VCR saying hi to my friends. Sadly when I played the tape over again wondering why my friends didnt say anything, I noticed that it was the exact same people laughing.

Once when i was little, i'm only 16 now, my dad used to watch the football a lot, but becAUSE of the size of our TV screen we couldn't see the little score box in the corner. When my dad complained about this i lied on the floor and tried to see around the edges of the screen thinking u could see more under there.

The first time I saw a news broadcast on TV, I thought they could see and hear you through the screen. I waved 'hi' to the reporter and then I tried to talk to him and ask him questions.
There was another such incident while I was watching an old Disney cartoon. I belive it was a Western. I thought that I could help Mickey beat up Pistol Pete by hitting his image on the TV screen. I waited for next scene that would show Pete, and when I saw him again, I bopped him with a Tinkertoy piece.
