I hate the Mandela effect and I can't believe I am posting this forever tying myself to the subject. It brings so,much negative attention to conspiracy theory as a whole and what I really don't get is the willingness of the people who buy into it to ignore common sense. I mean, back in about 2003 or so I wrote a paper in college talking about how I hypothesized the exact thing would happen but I explained all of the different ways it would happen and it had nothing to do with alternate universes or metaphysics. For example copyright could cause people to slightly change a line before feeding it through the culture as a commonly repeated phrase. Magic mirror on the wall sounds wrong because Disney didn't release snow white onto home video except for a few controlled and limited timeframe meaning for a while, the only way you could have seen Walt Disney's snow White was if you went to the theaters in the 30s during the original run or during a 50s, 70s, or 80s rerelease meaning for most adults over 30, unless you went to see Snow White in theaters multiple times and decades apart, you had probably only seen it once meaning your memories of the story etched into your head come from the grimm brothers version in which the line IS, "mirror mirror on the wall..."
I guess I should follow my own paper and I can assume that this one is a simple fault of shoddy memory. But I can just hear the damsel in distress calling out for her love and hitting the bad guy with fists shouting his name. So I ask you...
What is the name of the big tough man who wears a sailor cap too and kidnaps Olive Oyle while Popeye and Wimpy track him down before knocking him out?
If you said, "aw shucks that's easy, his name is BRUNO," then you are wrong.
His name is Bluto.
Am I the only one who finds this a so called Mandela effect that I just can't be satisfied in saying, well I guess my memory aint all that," or do you feel that way too?
Are any other ones just too much to accept the logical explanation for cuz I have heard em all and I can reconcile with each being my memory's fault or some other logical explanation, many of which I knew wed begin seeing back in 2003!
