I'm so sorry my inner nerd is showing.

4 Conspiracy Theories I'm Obsessed With
Andre Benz Follow Message

I am constantly getting teased by my friends because I am a “closet nerd.” I am a huge fan of Sci-Fi movies, documentaries, and yes, even conspiracy theories. Often times, when insomnia strikes, I turn to Youtube or Netflix for conspiracy theory videos. So since it is currently almost 1:00 a.m., I decided to list a few of my favorite conspiracy theories and explain why I think you should believe in them too.

The Mandela Effect

The Mandela Effect is basically a theory where everyone believes that a certain thing happened or remember it happening/being something that is actually not. I know that may sound confusing but let me explain. The Mandela Effect coined its name from the one and only Nelson Mandela. Now ask yourself this: When did Nelson Mandela die? Many think it was when he was in prison in the 1980’s, but he actually passed away in 2013. Hince the name, “Mandela Effect.” So here is another example of this theory: Curious George does not have a tail. (Yeah, let that sink in, because I could have sworn he did!) Also, the Evil Queen in Snow White does not say, "Mirror Mirror on the wall…" She actually said Magic Mirror on the wall. Basically, my childhood was a lie

Aliens Are Real

...and the Government knows about it. To be honest, I have been obsessed with the idea that life exists on other planets because how can you be so naive not to? Also, if Aliens did exist, obviously the Government would not tell us about their existence because of the cinematic, over-popularized Hollywood idea on what Aliens look like and what their intentions are. Many people would turn to a state of panic if we said that there were other life forms outside of our own. Just my two cents though...

Time Travel Is Legit

This one was hard for me to grasp at first, but honestly, it is just too good not to include. In a film by Charlie Chaplin, you see a woman using what seems to be a cellphone. Many people think that this is digitally edited in or she is just simply holding something up to her ear, but either way, it's weird because there weren't exactly around then.

About Mattress Firm

This one I found while scrolling through Twitter one night, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking of it since. Mattress Firms are EVERYWHERE! There are at least 5 of them in my hometown all within 10-15 minutes of each other. Now I know this may not seem weird to you but keep reading and it will make sense. Mattress Firms are always empty, yet there are so many of them. On top of that, mattresses are not in that high of demand. You get a new mattress every 8-10 years or so, maybe even longer. If this is the case, why on earth are there so many Mattress Firms and how are they still open? The common theory is that they are money laundering services, because how else are they staying open and still popping up everywhere?

These are just my top four conspiracy theories that I'm intrigued by right now. So the next time you can’t sleep or are stuck in traffic and see three Mattress Firms right next to each other, just keep these in mind.

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

The invention of photography

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

Exposing Kids To Nature Is The Best Way To Get Their Creative Juices Flowing

Constantly introducing young children to the magical works of nature will further increase the willingness to engage in playful activities as well as broaden their interactions with their peers


Whenever you are feeling low and anxious, just simply GO OUTSIDE and embrace nature! According to a new research study published in Frontiers in Psychology, being connected to nature and physically touching animals and flowers enable children to be happier and altruistic in nature. Not only does nature exert a bountiful force on adults, but it also serves as a therapeutic antidote to children, especially during their developmental years.
