The Mandela Effect is an unexplained phenomenon that is taking the world by storm and the alternate memories affect nearly everyone. For some, it’s a simple case of “our memory isn’t as good as we thought”, but for others, it’s solid proof we are experiencing a parallel universe’s timeline cross into our reality and it is disrupting our history. If you’re only just hearing of the Mandela effect, we would suggest reading our Mandela Effect Overview and Theories before diving into the list of Mandela Effect examples.
Italy Connected To Sicily
Italy has always been known as “The Boot of Italy” because of the shape of the country and the way its boot shaped mass angles into the ocean. If you ever remembering referring to Italy as “The Boot”, you’re completely mistaken. If you look at any map, no matter how old, Italy is now connected to Sicily and is not shown as a boot shape, and apparently never has been.
They say it was “Febreeze” instead of “Febreze“, which seems that it would make more sense as it’s meant to essentially create a breeze of fresh air, but again, nowhere in the history of this product will you find it spelled with the extra “E”. Another great example of the Mandela Effect.
Jif or Jiffy Peanut Butter
Some people seem to recall that JIF peanut butter actually used to be “Jiffy” peanut butter. We’re kind of on the fence about this one because we remember it as being JIF the whole time. Choosy moms choose JIF… right?
The Lion And The Lamb
If you think you know the Bible well, then what animal do you recall as being the one to lay down with the lamb? Most people we have questioned about this have automatically responded with “lion”, however, the Bible now states that it is the wolf that will lays down with the lamb. There is some controversy over the Mandela Effect in regards to the Bible as there are different versions of the Bible which may have different translations and may not be a part of this phenomenon at all, but there are still those people who say they know their Bible front to back and that there are definitely verses that have somehow changed.
When did Betty White die? Or did she? If search her on Google, she is still alive and well, as feisty as ever at the age of 94, but there are many who seem to remember her having died a few years back. Some even remember her having two deaths in the media. Although this could be attributed to spam articles circulation the internet.
