So, apart from shoes, film quotes and books on bears, JFK's car, are there any genuine historic changes your MElievers can demonstrate?

Or is is limited to pop culture in the past 70 years. Oddly, when mass media was really ramping up. Wierd..

I'll make this quick..

When I was a teen I had a few pairs of Converse high-tops.. The logo was to the outside (on the ankle) - I've never seen them any other way. So far as I know they were that way from the shoe's conception.

Not any more.

Now the logo is on the inside of the ankle - and always has been.


That just looks so wrong lol

It doesnt look wrong at all.

I've owned many pairs of Chucks since the early 90s and the logo has been on the inside on every one of those pairs.

It would look wrong if the logo was on the outside.
If you owned a pair of Chucks with the logo on the outside, then they where NOT Chuck Taylor originals.
There are many cheap knock offs and copies out there.

I remember well, the logo always being on the outside.

When i was a teen i (and every other skater) obsessed about our 'cons'

The logo, at that time (90's) was always on the outside.

No it wasn't.


Again, if your logo was on the outside then they WERE NOT Chuck Taylor Originals.

How can you tell people "it is Pete Townsend" when they are calling you stupid for getting it wrong because every web source say "Townshend"?

When I was a little boy, my mother was somewhat fascinated by the love affair between Princess Margaret of England and a handsome Royal Air Force officer, Group Captain Peter Townsend. The couple were unable to marry, as they wished to, because he was divorced and her sister was (and still is) the head of the Church of England, which did not recognize divorce at the time (and still does so only reluctantly).

It all happened before I was born, but there were a couple of old magazines that my mother had kept because they contained the story. I was a bookworm and read everything in the house, including those magazines, so I was well aware of the spelling — one spelling, at least — of the name Townsend.

When I was somewhat older, and got seriously into music, I discovered The Who. This would have been in the mid-Seventies, long before the internet existed. And when I first saw the group leader’s name in print, probably on a record label or in a music magazine, I thought it was a misspelling.

It wasn’t, of course. That is how Pete Townshend spells his surname. It’s also how his father, Cliff Townshend, spelled his. Cliff was a modestly successful bandleader in the Fifties who had a hit with a saxophone version of Unchained Melody.

Here’s one of Cliff’s record covers. I think the family resemblance is pretty striking, don’t you?


One Saturday or Sunday (I forget which) afternoon in 1980, I was listening to a programme on BBC Radio 1 in which a famous rock star would come on and play DJ for an hour. That day it was Bill Wyman of the Rolling Stones. His selection of records was pretty bluesy and one of them was Young Man Blues my Mose Allison.

If you’re a fan of The Who you probably remember that they recorded a version of that song and often played it live.

Wyman mentioned The Who’s version while introducing the song, saying that it had been covered by ‘that famous typographical error, Pete Townshend’ and his band. A lame joke, but you get the point. People were stumbling over that H in Pete Townshend’s name long before the internet existed. Before even Nelson Mandela himself became famous, in fact.

If all the evidence says something is one way and you remember it another, your memory is probably mistaken.

I keep a diary. And when I go back through the years and read what I have written in that diary, I sometimes find that I have recorded facts and events one way, although I now remember them a different way. This is a common experience among diarists, and it offers a telling example of the unreliability of human memory.

There is no ‘Mandela Effect’.

THey have always had it both ways but hey every thing in the world is a ME..


It's raining out and I swear 20 mins ago it wasnt, ME
I drank this glass of water which means it was originally filled with water and since its not its residue..ME




As sarcastic as it might seem,

the sad thing is its getting close, I have read some "Mandela effects" that just make me wonder if I am living in the movie idiocracy.


What is the most counterfeit shoe in the world or what would be the top 10 most counterfeit shoes in the world?


What are some the most misquoted movie and song lines?

I know the song and movie one points to many Mandela effects and is explained thou-rally through how our minds works, how we input and store data and how we recall that data.

Further explained by the pop culture and merchandising where copyrights are involved.

If one was to find the answer to the top 10 counterfeit shoes I wouldn't be surprised actually I would almost gamble that the converse shoes are on the list.

All you need to do is get people who designed the shoe to say it's changed and I will listen. Ignorant people making ignorant claims does not a ME make.

Doesn't cover the logo being on the outside, but...



Also seems relevant:
31 companies sued by Converse in 2014 alone:
www.bbc.co.uk...


I suspect people claiming that their "Cons" had their logo on the outside were actually wearing Pro-Keds.

Some are inside facing, some are out.

Converse has done it both ways.. one google search will clear that up "old converse shoes".

Absolutely untrue!
Converse only ever had the logo on the inside.

Pro-Keds however, do in fact have their logo both ways.
Evidently people are getting the brands confused....

So the simpler explanation is that I bought Converse shoes at a chain shoe store in the mall in the US that were actually Pro-Keds Fake Converse..

..My friends also bought fake shoes - and the people in my high school also all bought fake shoes.

Don't you think kids in high school / middle school would make fun of people with fake Converses'. Wouldn't it stand out that the logo was on the outside? Converse shoes were pretty popular - seems like it would be "a thing" in school to make fun of kids with the logo on the outside. That's what kids do. lol

..but it wasn't.

The logo was only on the outside - it's a Mandela Effect.


What happened to Elementalist and opethPA.. They remember both. Maybe they remember fake shoes?

lol

Oh - and it was Pete Townsend.



Note the Title and the name in caps (in the body) are both spelled "Townsend".

So it comes down to some sort of weird shift in timelines/alternate realities in which really unimportant things are somehow changed or that the Bellingham Herald employs lazy journalists that can't be bothered to check spellings and most of us have really crap memories?

Tough call, eh?

Do you even know what Pro-Keds are?
They are the shoes that The Ramones made famous.
Interesting that everyone thinks that they were Converse, no?

Also notice how everyone in this thread that has referred to the shoes in question as Chucks or Chuck Taylor are saying the logo is on the inside only.
This suggests that some people know the difference between brands, and some people don't.


And a fun fact for you:
Chuck Taylors are the most copied shoe in the world.

They remember both because, like you, they don't know the difference between the brands.
Every shoe that has borrowed the Chucks design have been mistakenly umbrella labeled as "Cons" by you and many, many others.

Your link to the record cover says "Townsend" and not Townshend on the front. I checked out a few of his other covers and they all spell it without the "h" too.

Are you saying that people are getting confused because his father's records spelt the name as "Townsend"?

Here's a link to another image where it's spelt as "Townsend" (sorry can't figure out how to upload an image)

If they're copied so much, it shouldn't be hard to find a pic with the logo on the outside..

..but no one has.

Even skeptics remember the logo on the outside.

Most copied shoe in the world = lots of pics - yet none available.

(I've already looked for a pic.. Maybe you'll have better luck looking up the fake ones?)
