Conspiracy Theory of the Week

The Mandela Effect

The Mandela Effect is a conspiracy where basically a large number of people don’t remember something right. For example, an immense group of people believed that Nelson Mandela had previously died before his actual death in 2013. People believed that Mandela had passed away in prison back in the 1980s, not in his home in Johannesburg in 2013.

Do any of you remember these guys?



You know, the Berenstein Bears, right? Almost everyone I know remembers reading these books as a child.

They’re actually called the BerenstAin Bears. Over half of the people who participated in a poll swore they thought it was Berenstein. So many people remember it as Berenstein that some of the internet even has started believing that it’s part of time travel/parallel universes.
