i used to think that the people on TV can hear you talking at home, so whenever my parents started talking about something else when the news was on i felt bad for the newsreaders, coz i thought that they knew they were being ignored.
So i would always pay really close attention to every news story and say 'mmm' knowledgeably at various intervals, right up until someone realised why i was doing it and put me straight, otherwise i would probably still be doing it now. :D

I use to think that whatever the last number in the year it was, made the year look like whatever channel that number was on TV. For example when it was 1993, I use to think that what was happening in my life looked like something that would happen on Channel 3.

I loved game shows as a kid but I could never figure out what they meant by "constellation prizes." I thought those sounded way better than any car or money but they always went to the losers. Now when I hear "consolation prize" I get a little sad that they aren't getting a group of stars.

I used to believe that before color television was invented, that the world was actually black and white. I thought that we invented color and changed the world from black and white to color.

I used to believe if I looked through the small ventilation slots in the back of our tv, then anyone in front of the tv would see me on the screen.

One of my favorite TV shows was about a giant ball covered in lights that would be lowered onto the roof of a building while people below celebrated.

Every night I would ask my parents to let me stay up to watch it but usually they made me to to bed at 9:00, so I only got to see it perhaps once a year.

It wasn't until I was six that I figured out that the "ball dropping show" only came on once a year on New Year's Eve, explaining why I was allowed up until midnight to see it.

When I was little, I saw a music video ("If this is it" by Huey Lewis and the News) in which members of the band had been buried up to their chins in sand and were singing. It scared the living daylights out of me because I seriously thought I was seeing severed heads singing on the beach!

I used to believe that all the shows on TV were happening live at the time I was watching them, so when my bed time came, I would make the case that the kids on TV didn't have to go to bed yet, so why do I have to?

I used to believe that if my Dad took a picture of me stood next to the TV when Going Live was on, it would look like I had really met Sarah Greene. We still have the poloroid!

I was a huge Courage The Cowardly Dog fan at the age of eight until the age of ten. And there's this one episode with this creepy mummy king giving the people three plagues. I had no problems with it at first.

That was until my friend at school said "My brother is afraid that guy's gonna show up in our bathtub."

After that, for a while *I* was afraid the creepy mummy king plague dude was going to show up in *my* bathtub. Hahaha. Now I'm into Courage again 'cause my guardian and I like to watch it together. CREEPY MUMMY KINGS ARE YET TO SHOW UP IN MY BATHTUB, LULZ.

I was wondering how are all those people going inside the TV .. I wanted to go in there too and i thought there is a little door on the back of the TV and that i have to find the cookie for becoming smaller (the one from alice in wonderland) so i can get inside.

Our son thought if you turned off the TV it would save your place like a bookmark in a book. (He was 5 before he remembers seeing TV, we lived in Europe)

I thought if you turned the T.V. off while a person was on screen, they would die!

I used to wait for ages for a scene without people in to turn it off...

while watching movies when the people in their didn't know who the culprit was but we knew it. I thought I could impress them by going inside the television and telling them who the culprit is..
