I'm so freaked out right now. The concept that something you've know all of your life is not real or never happened as you recall it has blown my mind. I got into a conversation with a friend at work and he was telling me about this show on HBO that he watched about the Mandela effect. My first question was... What is the Mandela effect?

According to healthline .com this is what it is:

The Mandela effect is an unusual phenomenon where a large group of people remember something differently than how it occurred. Conspiracy theorists believe this is proof of an alternate universe, while many doctors use it as an illustration of how imperfect memory can be sometimes.

Why is it named the Mandela effect? Goodhousekeeping.com tell us that:

"Nelson Mandela, who this theory is named after, died in 2013. However, countless people distinctly remember him dying in prison in the 1980s."
If you're thinking to yourself... yeah right! Check out this list of Mandela effects examples according to the same website. Here are a few.
'"Sex and the City'

I could sear that the show was always called sex in the city, the show was actually titled Sex and the City."

Jif, Not "Jiffy"

I know for a fact I ate Jiffy peanut butter back in the day, but the author of the goodhousekeeping article speculates that we're combining Jif with its competitor, Skippy.

Febreze

I use the stuff mostly every day, and honestly I've always believed that it was "Febreeze," Did I mention that my mind is blown?

Skechers

Okay one more, did you realize that there is no "T" in Skechers.

I know your mind is officially blown!. You're Welcomed.
