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.

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!

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.

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 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.
