The Mandela Effect

Ever had that feeling when you hear something, such as a celebrity dying, and was sure it had happened before? When that happens to a group of people it has a name: the Mandela Effect. It's called that because there are many who were sure Nelson Mandela died in the 1980s and not in 2013.

Welcome to Alternate Memories, where these and more are documented, discussed and puzzled over. We're not here to judge. We're just trying to find out what's really going on.

Please bear in mind that as you read about them more and more, some will hit you as being ridiculous, and others as spookily accurate. They're not the same for everyone, which is a huge part of their mystery ;-)
