I'm sure a lot of you are familiar with the topics of alternate realities or alternate universes or memories of events, things or places that no
longer exist. There are multiple threads here on ATS that discuss these topics. I can not pin point the exact year I realized some thing had changed.
My event that no longer exists is back around 1976-78? This is in my "universe" the Russians landed on the moon. I remember seeing pictures of them
standing on the moon in our local paper. I was about 6 or 7 years old. I remember talking to my dad about it. I remember my dad being proud of the
fact that we (USA) got there first.
About 20 years later with the Internet and all. I find out that the Russians never landed men on the moon.
I was totally shocked. Like WTF???
Since then, there have been other things that I noticed that are not the same or not quite the same. Some I go back and forth on whether I'm
remembering things correctly and I'm just not sure. Just recently, 2 new events have caught my attention. "Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs" "Mirror
mirror" is now "Magic mirror" and Mr Rogers Neighborhoods theme song is different. To me, it was "It's a beautiful day in THE neighborhood....."
Now it's " It's a beautiful day in THIS neighborhood......."
I asked my wife, my brother, my sister and my mom how they remembered those 2 things.
They all remembered them like I did. Our ages span from 26, my wife, and 71, my mom.
I know I share some memories with others, some I don't.
I didn't make this thread to argue if I'm right or wrong. We can do that in another thread. This thread is for gathering information. A collective
"alternate universe" memory base. And with this, maybe we can pin point a common year, event, something!!
Here are some of the things I remember but do not exist anymore.
The Russians landing on the moon.
Mirror mirror on the wall...
...a beautiful day in THE neighborhood..
A peanut butter called "Jiffy"
Ernest Borgnigne (sp?) dying about 10 years ago
Nancy Regan died about 6 or 7 years ago
I remember the country of China was HUGE!!!!!!! Now its about the size of the United States.
Im sure I can think of more.
Please contribute your memories to this thread that are no longer "true".
Again this thread is not for an argument whether Some of us are right or wrong.
Because in my heart, in the deepest pit of my soul and my being, I know damn well that Those Bears were Berensteins.
