You might change your mind when something you're absolutely sure of changes - and you'll probably learn of it from a thread like this.
We tend to think that memories are stored in our brains just as they are in computers. Once registered, the data are put away for safe-keeping and eventual recall. The facts don’t change.
But neuroscientists have shown that each time we remember something, we are reconstructing the event, reassembling it from traces throughout the brain. Psychologists have pointed out that we also suppress memories that are painful or damaging to self-esteem. We could say that, as a result, memory is unreliable. We could also say it is adaptive, reshaping itself to accommodate the new situations we find ourselves facing. Either way, we have to face the fact that it is “flexible.”
Our memories change over time and frequently they are simply wrong1,2. But most of us tend to think of memories as accurate accounts2. Extensive studies have shown that our memories of events are active interpretations of the past rather than picture-perfect records of it

I think some of you have a misunderstanding about the Mandela Effect..
Your original records should say Lynyrd.
It should always have been Lynard.
If I had that ticket stub, it would say Lynyrd.
There are a lot of resources online to get more information about the Mandela Effect. (I have a feeling you know about the ME though, and for some reason are using tangibles to let me know you disagree, which is a little weird given the definition of the ME.)

I remember when Lynard Skynard opened for Lead Zeppulin.

These threads are un needed. why you ask? BEcause both of you are right and wrong at the same time.
How is that possible? BECAUSE soem people will not be effected by the change and their memory will not reflect the changes to the time line.
Others will be of the opinion that all of us who remember the name the other way are mis remembering. Thats the way it is set up so that Time will be un effected.
It also effects older people and children harder than most. Still the effect happens but theres nothing you can do about it short of being john titor.

Good find. I theorized that as long you don't look up any of the things that could be attributed to the ME they stay the same for you. As soon you try to investigate it they suddenly change and slowly attempt to alter your memories. It's kinda creepy if you think about it.
