Generally fascinating thread. Could something like this explain the Mandela Effect:
A premature obituary is an obituary published whose subject is not actually deceased at the time of publication. Examples of premature obituaries range from that of arms manufacturer Alfred Nobel, whose premature obituary condemning him as a "merchant of death" may have caused him to create the Nobel Prize, to black nationalist Marcus Garvey, whose actual death was apparently caused by reading his own obituary. This article only lists the recipients of incorrect death reports (not just formal obituaries) from publications, media organisations, official bodies, and widely used information sources such as the Internet Movie Database; but not mere rumours of deaths. People who were presumed (though not categorically declared) to be dead, and joke death reports that were widely believed, are also included.
source: Premature obituaries
And the Mandela specific link (to save you searching on the page): Mandela premature obituary

Since ItsEvolutionBaby pointed to 1989, i would like to remind (to those not aware) that was the year when Cold War trully ended. We had the collapse of all entire communist eastern Europe on that year! I didnt knew that 1989 was recorrent on this.
Remember it´s was the fall of the Berlin Wall (November 1989), but also the change of political regime in Poland, GDR (German Democratic Republic), Czechlosvakia (the Velvet Revolution), Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania (Ceaeusecu´s regime fell and he was executed that year).
It was also the year of China´s Tiannamen Square events (starting on May 1989). These made the Western countries change their pollicy towards the chinese government. It started a 10 year period of political and trade sanctions against China.
So, I am speculating, but 1989 be the key that shows us that timelines (and therefore events) can be manipulated (and were)? Were Reagan and Gorbatchov shown (in 1986-87) an alternate future where Cold War Doomsday scenario happened and made them set a entirelly new course on East-West relationship?
Is there some sort of chronovisor tech? Have we already developed time travel/manipulation technologies?
Did some US agency meet future human travellers and are cooperating?
I was not aware that others were having the same problem with timeline events. I just thought I was crazy! Yet I do have detailed recollections.(maybe that´s just a side effect of mental illness).
Just sharing this!

Based on this thread, i´m thinking that some of the things that have been said could point out to evidence of the multiverse theory.
But, i still dont understand why some people (involuntarily) could "jump" between alternate universes (and keep memories of other timelines).
I wonder if there are many people worldwide that have the same strange recollections of variations on the chain of events on a given timeline.
Just trying to make sense of this!

here's another one for you. It's not spelled "spelt" it's spelled "spelled".
So... you need to ask yourself (or selfs or selves) depending on where you feel you stand on this issue...........
What the hell is going on? Parellel realities?!?! A different perspective???? Confusion...
or just plain co-inky-dink!!
