    an author mathematician friend of mine got stoned and were talking about this, we do this often, he's a lot smarter than me, his idea/ theory is it would start very small with one to or two letter word and things like tense, as time passed and awareness grew the phenomena would become more pronounced, to include skin color and geography, his next idea was to use it in a copy-copyright right dispute case, which I found entertaining.

    a lot of people seem to be tripped out by this. Here's another one: Sally Field said "You like me, right now, you like me" and not "you like me! You really like me!" when receiving her oscar. Now I didn't see the speech as I was 4 or 5, but we've all seen it parodied over and over and it's a trip that it's SO misquoted so often. Edit: and I say "so misquoted" because even though it's two words, the rhythm of how it's said is so different from the parodies. She says "...you like me. Right now. You like me." with pauses in between, as opposed to "...you like me. Right now you like me" (a la "you like me. You really like me." )

    I've heard others say the same thing on the internet.
    People remember specific plot points and characters that aren't from the Shaq movie.

    so my best friend remembers it, too. he says he can remember the movie poster, even.

    but get this -- when i was 16 i tore tickets at a movie theater in twin falls. there was a shitty movie called first kid playing at the end of the summer before school started starring sinbad and whoever else. we went to the first showing of that awful crow sequel and he remembers making cracks about how we should have gone to first kid instead, and that even "shazaam" was better.

    i just feel bad that it made you feel bad.
    One of my youtuber friends just made a video about whether or not to turn people on to this shit as it can cause negative emotions.
    it hasn't caused me any negative emotions; i just think it's interesting.
    But now i see what he meant and i'm sorry that something i posted made you grind your teeth.

    i am glad i was exposed to it, i guess? don't sweat that. it's annoying in so many ways, though. i don't go on reddit, i don't read these threads other than to go "oh, bernstAIN bears", well ... that's a little surprising at best, i guess. i didn't do drugs when i was that age, i like to believe my lucidity is reliable.

    bah. it's a sinbad movie that didn't exist. it's so silly, the memes write themselves.

    right? right.

    BUT, if the term "mandela effect" inherently denotes colliding realities and or wayward time travelers, i am misunderstanding it.

    i don't proclaim to know very much about the "mandela effect", but i'd agree with you elevenism, i truly like the idea, that this could all possibly be possible?!
    we my never really know!

    Right, and to me "mandela effect" describes the phenomenon itself, the phenomenon of large groups of people remembering things differently and remembering things that didn't happen.
    But included in those two words "mandela effect" are NOT the cause of said phenomenon.

    edit: @GibbonBlack , have you ever watched any of the videos from the guy who claims to have "broken" the "David Bowie is alive" story?
    See, it all has to do with basic geamatria.
    Now the David Bowie thing, he "died" of "cancer." And is it a coincidence that he died at 69 and when you turn 69 on its side, it produces THE ASTROLOGICAL. SYMBOL. FOR. CANCER. Coincidence? FUCK NO!!!!
    All you have to do is go back to a certain scene in Labyrinth where there's a CLOCK on the wall, and do you think THAT shit's a coincidence, there being a CLOCK on the wall that tells a certain time? HOW COULD IT BE? Because when you take the time on the clock and convert it into this formula, you come up with the number of days between the date that China Girl hit number 2 on the hot 100 in the Channel Islands and the date that Bowie's sickness was diagnosed, which, although it wasn't released to the public, is easily ascertainable by using the greek gematria for the name of Golden Years and THEN converting it to the Hebrew (this being the place that catches most people up,) because, see, they have to hide it in plain sight or it doesn't work!

    Or some shit like that. And the dude YELLS all this shit.
    And hooooly shit, i was gonna look that dude up so i could show you this insanity, but there are more than one of them.
    And you people think I'M crazy. :P

    Russianvids? Me and a friend binge watched some of his stuff once. My favourite is a video that just lists Jewish celebrities and people are commenting like "Oh my god, you've cracked it!!!!!!"

    I have a friend who went off the deep end there with stuff like that... just, one day, suddenly all news was a lie, and the explanation was nefarious and straight out of an X Files screenplay.

    Then Donald Trump became president, and suddenly all that's kind of over and done with... I wonder if the "NWO puppet-masters" narrative that was serving as the backbone of his grand world view just kind of crumbled when Trump became president.

    Sadly, yes, i haven't seen much about NWO puppetmasters since trump got elected. So no more conspiracy entertainment for me.

    See, here's the thing. People think that trump is the ANSWER to the new world order.

    Fucking donald trump ruined conspiracy theories.

    So here is one of the handful that has really tripped me out: beats by dr. dre.
    the logo has ALWAYS said beats by dr dre, never just beats by dre.

    Edit:that's just the logo though; commercials and whatnot call it beats by dre, so it's not really very interesting.


    Has anyone found any solid new ones?

    @DF118 , this is far more profound than "misquotations."
    Have you looked into this phenomenon at all?
    It started when, upon Nelson Mandela's death, HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE remembered him dying in prison and were confused.

    I don't see how paranoia plays into it in any way. It exists. It interests me.

    I swear to fucking god, every single time i start a thread here about something interesting that doesn't fit into everyone's neat little bubble of what's "cool," i receive comments like that and ridicule up to and and including people inferring and implying that i am stupid, which is pretty fucking laughable.

    Why not look at strange things that are interesting? MILLIONS remember the Berenstain Bears books as BerenSTEIN. MILLIONS of people.

    Is that not an interesting anomaly worthy of discussion?
    the more recent death of Mandela threw me for a loop as well. i remember feeling really confused in voicing the memories i have of Mandela's passing in the 80's
    i discussed this with my then (now ex bf) and he has no memory of an 80's death. i didn't think too much about it at that time until i ran a crossed some reading of the 'Mandela Effect' i was curious enough to ask my ex husband what his recollections are and he doesn't have memories of an 80's Mandela death. i went a lil further and quizzed my ex husband about what he remember's from Snow White (mirror mirror), Monopoly Millionaire (Monocle) Guy, Star Wars (Vader Luke_father scene), minus the Mandela thing he also remembered the other things the same way i did; mirror mirror/with monocle/Luke_father (vs no_father).
    it was just a curiosity i also found interesting, and that's kinda where it stops for me.

    In light of spending a great deal of my life being gaslighted, I started to write everything down when I was very young. I kept close eye on everything to understand when I was wrong and when I was right. I find the thing people mis-remember to be odd. I worked in a library and a book store, so the Berenstain Bears thing makes me scratch my head, as I shelved it enough to remember it correctly. I don't remember Mandela dying until his late death. However, I have holes in my own brain that would make most people feel crazy. They aren't shared by a lot of other people, though. So when I swear I remember taking over for my friend driving in the rain through Pennsylvania to see a friend, and losing control of the wheel, I have to accept that she remembers being the one driving and losing control. The only good thing that has come of all my own false memories is that I have some good stories brewing that maybe one day I'll actually get written.

    One of my local news channels recently did a story on this. Apparently, a professor at Arizona State is getting some grant money to study this. http://www.fox10phoenix.com/news/270174085-video
