This. Of the world is def said, i guess just not at the end. This doesn't bug me. If it was somehow confirmed there was never an of the world, I'd be strongly in the cern particle alternate universe camp.

So in addition to the bears, there were several other false memories that a large percentage of the population has, and a few of them did blow my mind, since I remember things that were either different or didn't occur. Some of them are:

The song We are The Champions by Queen: I always remembered the very end of the song went "We are The Champions.. of the world" but "of the world" never existed and it ended abruptly right after "We are The Champions". I could have sworn it ended the other way.

Jiffy peanut butter: When I was young I remember it as Jiffy, but it's actually Jif, and the company swears they were never Jiffy. Maybe not a big deal.

Mr. Roger's: I remember the song as "It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood" but apparently its actually a beautiful day in "this" neighborhood. I don't know how everyone can get that wrong.

Snow White: The queen in snow white who said "Mirror mirror on the wall, who's the fairest one of all" but now, apparently, in the move she actually said "Magic mirror on the wall"??

Maybe it's just a misconception of original content, but still a little mind blowing. The Mandela Effect could be a hoax, but it's hard to explain false memories.
The Mandela Effect was invented by an idiot blogger who, when Mandela died in 2013, was staggered because, being an idiot, she thought he had already died in prison in the 1980s. She had clear memories of TV footage of the funeral, and the riots in South African cities that followed.

She decided that she might be a 'slider' who migrates between universes, and that in another universe Mandela really did die in prison in the 1980s.

In fact, she was simply half-remembering the publicity for Richard Attenborough's 1987 movie Cry Freedom, starring Kevin Kline and Denzel Washington, about the white liberal South African newspaper editor Donald Woods, his friendship with Black Consciousness activist Steve Biko and Biko's death (i.e. murder) in police custody in 1977. When the film came out, US TV did re-show footage of Biko's funeral and the resulting riots. The film was not a big hit in America, but Washington did gain an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor and his career prospered.

The blogger, however, is so dumb that she had no recollection of Mandela's release from prison in 1990 -- a global media event of the first magnitude -- or his presidency of South Africa, or his long and distinguished retirement with statesmen and celebrities from all over the world seeking him out for a handshake and a photo because he was one of the most admired men alive. All that passed her by.

That's how dumb you have to be to believe that, in an alternative universe, Mandela died in prison in the 1980s, the Berenstain Bears were called the Berenstein Bears and Darth Vader really said, 'No, Luke, I am your father' (people just quote it like that to make clear it's a Star Wars thing, but the original movie line omits the 'Luke'). People remember stuff wrong.

Freddie Mercury really did add '...of the world' to the last reprise of We Are The Champions at Live Aid in 1985, though.

Who cares if they are satisfied as long as you are. But drinks for a month not bad instead.

This reminds me, I made a bet with a guy for either $5, $10, or $20 in 1999 that there is no Gremlins 3. He still hasn't paid. Should probably post on his Wall about it.

the fact that a fraudulent sign language interpreter managed to con his way into nelson mandela's funeral is way stranger, more hilarious, (and true!) than any bull**** memory of mandela dying in prison

how about the whole Sinbad starring in a movie as a genie and the poster with him as the genie that doesn't actually exist?

Re: The Great Berenst#in Bears Debate

I'm guilty of the Sinbad thing too. Clearly confused with the Shaq movie I never saw, but I can picture it pretty clearly, smile, outfit and all.

There was a photo that Sinbad provided where he dressed as a genie for a 1994 TV movie night thing he hosted, but it's so obscure I can't imagine I would have seen much less remembered it. But the outfit looks right.

Re: The Great Berenst#in Bears Debate

another of the mandela effects is a famous quote from the Star Wars movie where everyone remembers Darth Vader supposedly saying "Luke, I am your Father", but he actually said "No, I am your Father.

James Earl Jones was the voice of Darth Vader, and he distinctly remembers the line was "Luke", not "No". Here is him recalling the script

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQ1mmkKb_BQ

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sSxrlPkEqyE

So the rumor is the Mandela effect was due to something that happened at CERN, that tore us into an alternate universe or something like that. One more thing that will leave people scratching their head is a promotional video that was made by CERN called "We are Happy at CERN", at 2:30 into the video, a scientist at CERN is actually sitting with a sign reading Mandela right on his lap. wtf?

Re: The Great Berenst#in Bears Debate

It's confirmed, we're being ****ed with.

This is a picture from the official CERN video called "We're Happy at CERN" with a scientist (or actor) hanging two signs around his neck.

The first one, Bond #1, and the second one, Mandela.

The actor in the first James Bond movie's name is Nelson. So he is actually saying Nelson Mandela...



he is seen at 2:30 into the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0Lt9yUf-VY

Ya'll getting too Woke, soon as you figure out the mandela effect they simply ship you off to a new dimension. Hopefully you don't really enjoy your time here...

The actor in the first James Bond movie's name is Nelson. So he is actually saying Nelson Mandela...
There aren't any other famous Mandelas, so that's a bit redundant.

And in the 1954 CBS TV version of Casino Royale, Barry Nelson didn't play Ian Fleming's character James Bond, he played 'Jimmy Bond of the CIA' (and wore a ready-made and elasticated bow tie, which would have caused the real Bond to shoot him on sight as an impostor).

The first actor to play James Bond was Bob Holness in a South African radio production of Moonraker in 1956. But the wider world didn't hear that. (Though Bob later became a rather legendary presenter of game shows on early-evening British TV, popular with children and students.)

So the first actor to make a proper fist of it was, as everyone knows, my old college roommate Robert's Edinburgh auntie's former coalman, Tommy aka 'Sean' Connery.

Incidentally, you know the Web was invented by an Englishman working at CERN? So you don't want to believe anything you see on the Web. Especially the conspiracy-theory stuff. We -- I mean they -- just put that kind of thing out there to misdirect you.
