This doesn’t seem quite right…

When we are children, our memories are really pliable.

And unreliable.

So sometimes the things we think we remember never actually happened.

Nelson Mandela never died in prison.

The Bearenstain Bears were never the Bearenstein Bears.

Kit Kat never had a hyphen.

Looney Tunes vs. Looney Toons...which is right?
Oh crap. I don’t even know…

All of these shared non-memories are so pervasive in society that they even have a name: The Mandela Effect.

What is the Mandela Effect?

Some believe that we are all slipping and sliding between parallel universes all the time and that sometimes things we experience change from one universe to the next.

Something else you should know is that this is a world-wide phenomenon.

So whether you believe this is caused by flawed childhood memories, or universal adjustment, you’ve got to admit it’s pretty cool.

Take a look!
