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.
Sex In The City
Many fans of this show say they are sure it was “Sex In The City“, but now the title has somehow changed to “Sex And The City“. If you’re a fan of the show, what are your thoughts on this one? We discovered that the perfume brand is ”Sex in the City”, but the show has the slight difference in name.
Australia Moved North
Did Australia used to be further south on the map instead of connected to the islands above? We, and many others, remember Australia being much further south and much further from the islands it is now connected to. Although there is no evidence it was ever further south, despite many people having this alternate memory.
America’s Largest State
What were you taught in school was the largest state in the USA?
I seem to recall having been taught, as many others do, that Texas was the largest state in the U.S. I distinctively remember playing the British Trivial Pursuit and being asked that question, to which I answered ‘”Texas”, but I was wrong and the answer on the card was California.
So it has to be one of the two, right?
Now you will find that the largest state is actually Alaska and if you look on any map, you will see that that is true, clear as day, as Alaska is practically half the size of the entire continental U.S.! Some say they definitely remember Alaska being much smaller on the maps than it is now. How do you remember it?
This isn’t one that we know a whole lot about, maybe we weren’t big enough fans, but there are some who insist that Katy Perry used to be Kate Perry and the Mandela Effect is causing the alternate memory of her previously being known only as Kate.
This beloved circular, fruity goodness, according to some people, is said to have been spelled “Froot Loops“. When you next go into a grocery store, check out the box and see if you think it looks correct, but we, as many other do, remember it to be spelled ”Fruit Loops”.
Do any of these alternate memories baffle you? Let us know in the comments below and share your thoughts on the Mandela Effect.
