How do you Remember These?

Most Common Mandela Effects

The Mandela Effect is an unexplained phenomena that has been gaining more attention recently. It is the occurrence where many--and when I say many, I mean a lot--people remember certain things, whether that be movies, logos, or shows, that showcase in a particular way, but it actually turns out to be not true.

The term "Mandela Effect" came about when people remembered Nelson Mandela dying in the 80s while he was in prison and even recalled seeing clips on his funeral on TV. However, Mandela actually passed away inn December of 2013.

1. The Berenstain Bears

This being one of the most common talked about Mandela Effect; a lot of people remember Berenstain being spelt Berenstein.

2. "Luke, I am your father."

One of the most quoted lines in cinematic history, "Luke, I am your father." did not actually occur. Darth Vader actually says, "No, I am your father." Some people may just call this a misremembered line, but is it really?

3. Shazaam Movie?

A bunch of people seem to remember a movie from the 90s where Sinbad starred as a genie; yet there wasn't one. Those people who do remember the existence of Shazaam are certain that they are not confusing this movie with the one that stars Shaq as a genie, Kazaam.

4. Febreze

Another common Mandela Effect is the spelling of Febreze. Numerous amounts of people can recall it being spelt Febreeze.

5. The Monopoly Man

Don't you remember him wearing a monocle? Well he actually doesn't.

6. Sex and the City?

Most recall this show's title being Sex in the City, but in reality it is Sex and the city.

7. The Mona Lisa

This one personally freaks me out. A significant amount of people, including myself, remember Leonarda da Vinci's Mona Lisa having a sort of blank expression, but she now wears a smile??????

8. Froot Loops

A lot of people say that this cereal brand was originally spelt like so on the left, but today it is spelt how it is show on the right.

9. Looney Tunes

This one really messes with my head, considering I grew up with this show and vividly remember it being Looney Toons, not Looney Tunes. Since this show is a cartoon, it would make more sense of the show being called Looney Toons, right?

10. Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Another popular line that is quoted from a movie is from Snow White that most remember being said a certain way. The line that most of us, if not all of us, quote frequently "Mirror mirror on the wall..." is not what the evil queen actually says in the movie. She in fact says "Magic mirror on the wall..."

I began suffering the symptoms of PCOS — acne, fatigue, weight gain, and an irregular cycle — when I was about 16, but I wasn't diagnosed until about nine years later.

The symptoms were, of course, frustrating, but I am now thankful for all of the time I spent trying to manage them naturally with my diet, herbs, and vitamins. Now that I am diagnosed, I do take a small dose of prescribed spironolactone which has helped immensely, mostly with my skin.

I'm not one to talk about personal issues, like the first-hand misogyny I experience as a woman, usually because it makes close family and friends uncomfortable. However, I have recently become exhausted with the number of comments I get, so I decided to rate all the ones I received in the past month to prove that misogyny is alive and real.

With the pandemic, so many of my friends and I discussed how it was hard to find new things for date night when so many places were closed. It seems like date nights were just endless nights of bingeing Netflix and stuffing my face with Halo Top and SmartSweets. I tried those other date night ideas like cooking together and playing cards. But even those things can get old after a while. Finally, I had it and decided we need to make date nights COUNT again, even if we had to social distance.

Here are 5 different and unique ways you can spice up date night with your partners.

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.
