I used to think that when the TV was fuzzy and black and white that lots of little ants were having a snowball fight
I used to believe that when you turned the TV off ,all the programs would stop. so i would leave the TV on when there was a program i didnt like just because i thought it was the only way to watch the next one.
I used to believe that what was showing on black & white TVs was filmed in places without color. I felt bad for those unfortunate people that had to live in black & white.
Thanks to my sister, I used to believe that babies saw everything upside-down. Every time we were watching television, my sister would insist that I watch it upside-down so that I could see life through a baby's eyes. And so that's what I did.
I used to believe that when you turned the tv off the program stopped and waited for you, picking up right where you left off.
I used to believe that if you looked on the side of the television when the news was on, you could see the rest of the newsroom. :)
When I was younger, I always noticed that all the commercials on television were always of things we didn't have, whether it be some new toy or an insurance company. After we switched phone companies, we suddenly started getting commercials for our old company and stopped seeing the one we had switched to. It made me think that all companies kept track of what we had purchased so they could concentrate their advertising on those who did not have their product.
I used to believe I'd get glued to the television if I watched it too much, after what my mum said. I literally thought that someone would come up behind me and glue *me* to the television!
When i was little, i used to believe that if you broke a television set, the static "snow" would spill out of the screen and onto the floor.
In the 50's when we got our first television, I believed all the really pretty women were'nt real but robots or dolls because no one could be that pretty and perfect.
i used to talk to the people on playschool through the speaker part of the tv...id get right up close to the telly and have in depth conversations with my mouth over the speaker...i guess it jsut never phased me that they werent answering back!! :)
I thought the 'dubbing mixer' on TV credits was the person in charge of stirring the make up for the actors.
When I was young,I used to believe that if you watched colour TV,your eyes would drop out.Thanks Dad!You just didn't want the expense of renting a colour set!
Me and my sister use to believe if we walked in front of a clicker when it was being used to change the channel we would be sucked into whatever program was on at that time. We ducked under the clicker everytime we walked past the tv until we were about 12.
I used to believe that the CBS "eye" was the giant eye of Walter Cronkite and he was always watching me . Terrorized me for years
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.
i used to believe that every time i replayed a movie the people would have to react the whole movie; so i used to turn it off to let them rest :D
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.
I used to believe that the networks were connected to my TV - and that I could punish them for bad shows by changing the channel.
When I was small I used to think that whenever my Dad got up to answer the phone during a episode of Miami Vice that he taped, all the actors stood still. I didn't understand how the VCR worked and that there was a pause button. It took a while before I could comprehend that one. ha ha
