  1. I have a new one. Grey’s Anatomy. I always thought the mother was ALICE Grey. I used to watch it all the time with my parents & when it came to Netflix, I was shocked to learn it was ELLIS Grey.
    I remember it vividly as BerenstEin Bears.
    It was definitely Sex IN the city. I remember being very young & thinking the show was just naked people having sex all the time.
    I’ve always known chartreuse as a yellow-green colour.
    I always thought there was 52 states. (Then again I’m Canadian, so not exactly my forte.)
    I’ve always spelt it ‘dilemma’.
    Mr.Rogers sang, “it’s a beautiful day IN THE neighbourhood.”
    I remember Looney Toons.

  2. Hi, so the BernsteinBernstain thing really blew my mind. It’s crazy. Funny thing is I always had a feeling something weird was going on but never put a name on.
    I remember,
    -Bernstein
    -Sex In The City
    -Jiffy Peanut Butter
    – Schultz
    I also remember a few things that didn’t make sense at the time, but with this I suppose it makes sense. My best friend and I have differing stories on how we met. My sister said she saw the movie Ella Enchanted months before it came out. This next one was a big one for me… I walked Into a Hot Topic one time, one I’ve been too many times, and it was completely different dimensions wise, my girlfriend at the time had no idea what I was talking about. Also, I have a dual memory of my ex girlfriends car. I remember it being green, and I also remember it being purple.
    Oh, and I saw someone else has the memory of the hot and cold water switching on sinks. I remember being in school and wondering when and why they changed it.

  3. Anyone remember “eachother” spelled as one word. I remember “noone” and “seperately” spelled this way too. I used to be great at spelling, but now get hung up all the time.

    About Sex IN the City… There is a boutique hair removal salon in my town called Wax IN the City. When it opened about 10 years ago, I went with my girlfriend to her appointment (I got her a gift certificate). I remember telling the owner that I thought it was a very clever name — I loved it (because I watched and really liked the show). She said Sex in the City was her favorite show, so she named her studio after it “Wax in the City.” There’s a reason why she didn’t name it Wax AND the City.

    Interestingly, after researching more, that salon changed its name to Waxing the City; the name change was posted on a ratings directory. I have to wonder if she changed it due to trademark issues, because it a complete knock off of Sex IN the City (her intention).

    Berenstein Bears, all the way.

  4. I remember berenstEin bears, my mom has old copies of the book and it says barenstAin bears.
    I remember sex IN the city, specifically.
    I remember Interview with A vampire. I read that entire series, watched the movie and read every Anne Rice book that she wrote. It was not Interview with THE vampire, WTF.
    I could have swore that Louie Anderson was dead.
    Looney TOONS – not tunes is how I remember it. I remember the ‘toons’ being consistent with car TOONS.

  5. I came across this site after I was surfing youtube and came across a video called 5 clues that parallel universes exist. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4h2wDGxab14&index=141&list=WL I already had a feeling they might but I wanted to check this out anyway because it was interesting to me. The first 5 didn’t seem too crazy but the 5th threw me for a loop. The Berenstein bears. Naturally I did what everyone else in the E team does, I googled it because I’m positive I remember seeing the E on the booklets in school. Sure enough, I can’t find anything but Berenstain everywhere and only photoshops of Berenstein which actually looks more correct even though those were faked. Worse yet, when I did more research about the Mandela effect, I realized, I too had thought he had died in the 80s but when he had died again I assumed I had just thought wrong when he they announced he was dead again. I took to FB and posted a picture of the Berenstein bears on my page, asking my friends to tell me the name of the bear family and everyone said BerenSTAIN. I know I’m not alone on the E team but I felt extra awkward that no one I know personally seems to remember the E. Actually, that’s not even the worse part. Despite me being shocked to find out it said Berenstain in this time line, because I know it said Berenstein, I’m vaguely having memories of it saying Berenstain now off and on, sorta like a false memory but not a false memory. It’s fleeting and it sorta scares me because I feel like what if just thinking about it is trying to rewrite what I know. I remember seeing it with the E, I remember pronouncing it like STEEN, I have no recollection of it having an A or being pronounced STAIN yet something keeps trying to make me think it’s always been STAIN despite what I KNOW I have seen and heard. It’s frustrating. I do have a feeling like someone mentioned, that CERN has likely punched a temporary hole in the space time fabric into another dimension parallel to this one, and things got zoinked but it seems only some of us realize or retain our memories. If this is the case, we’re in for some real trouble, come Sept since CERN is supposedly going to do something else. It’s literally impossible to remember everything we know about the past and present, and if this get zoinked again, I don’t know what we’re going to do, or even for that matter, if everything ever typed up on this site will still be here!

  6. I literally JUST had an experience!!!! So me and my boyfriend were watching That 70s Show and in this episode Eric spelled out bacuum and he spelled it v-a-c-c-u-u-m!!! My boyfriend and I were astonished and rewinded it and the second time he spelled it v-a-c-u-u-m but we both KNOW the first time he spelled it with 2 c’s! We are both in disbelief, how did it change just like that!? Fiona, does this mean that we JUST slipped into an alternate universe? I am so confused and amazed that we both just witnessed that.

    1. From what I’ve learned, studying this phenomenon for 10 years now, it can happen that quickly. Frankly, I suspect that little things like that occur all the time, but we usually only notice the big things, like Berenstein/Berenstain Bears.

      1. I don’t know if this means anything, but I conferred with my mom about my memories about an alternate geography around Japan, and she seemed to have dual memories of some of the stuff, like the three hour bullet train ride to Tokyo, but knowing that the two cities were 10 miles apart, so I took her to my school, where there is a wall-sized map of the world in one of the lounges. When we got there, my entrance card didn’t work, but as we were leaving, someone else walked in, so we followed. Sure enough, Japan now has two primary islands, not the one that my mom and I remember, and the city placement that stumps us. I also think it’s funny that when we were about to leave, I said to her, “It figures that we can’t get in, but I wonder how long it will take them to change it.” At that point, a passing girl gave us a funny look and walked into the lounge, allowing us to enter. Coincidence?

      2. Hi Fiona,

        Perhaps this should go in the dead celebrity thread, but I’m posting here because it involves a fairly quick turnaround. Feel free to move to the celebrity thread if needed. Anyway, this involves Barry Humphries, the entertainer known for the Dame Edna persona. Every morning, as I get ready for work. I listen to NPR Morning Edition. One morning, many years ago (2005/2006 I would guess) they reported that he had died. Though I didn’t catch the cause of death, it was definitely a serious piece, not any type of comedic bit, but a brief memoriam before they moved on to the next story. A few days later I mentioned this to a coworker who was a fan of his work, and they had no idea what I was talking about. We looked it up online right away, and of course it showed that he was alive and well.

        1. LC, I had to look that one up as well. I was sure Dame Edna was gone, and — for me — that was terribly sad. I’m wondering if there was an erroneous obituary published, because — at the time — I remember thinking the announcement was far too brief for the stature of Humphries’ career.

  7. I’m from the UK so I’ve never heard of the Berenst*in Bears so can’t comment on that but here are my experiences:

    * For me Nelson Mandela died in 2013. I remember seeing on the news in the late 90s that he met the Spice Girls.
    *In Disney’s Snow White its “Magic Mirror”.
    * I remember the show being called “Sex in the City” and it even getting abbreviated to SITC in magazines but when I look it up it seems it has always been “Sex and the City”.
    * I’m sure I remember the film/book being called “Interview with a Vampire” but when I look it up its “Interview with the Vampire”. Although I’ve never seen/read it so could be just remembering it wrong.
    * I remember hearing/reading somewhere that Sarah Michelle Geller was pregnant in 2003 but I don’t ever remember her having the baby.
    * I remember being told in school that Hitler had brown eyes. Also that he had no children but I remember hearing that his nieces and nephews had made a pact never to have children so the Hitler name/gene died out.
    * I’ve seen “Big” several times and each time the woman doesn’t turn into a kid to be with him at the end.
    * The Lindbergh baby was never found; I remember there even being a reference to this in “The Simpsons”. However when I look it up it says that he was found dead.
    * I remember that 9/11 happened on Tuesday 11th September. I’m certain of this as it was also my first day of sixth form.
    * “Dilemna” not “Dilemma”.
    * Like another poster I also remember being taught in school that the correct way was “alot” and not “a lot”.
    * Agatha Christie went missing a turned up 10 days later.
    * MLK was killed by a sniper.

    I remember in the mid 90s there was an American documentary series called “Hollywood Kids” which was shown on ITV which my mother used to watch. I remember the very 90s theme tune which had the lyrics “growing up in Hollywood, living in the spotlight” and I also remember a clip of it featuring Kim Kardashain being shown on a “Before they were famous” show a couple of years ago. However I can not find any trace of it now, although I can find some of reference to the spin-off series “Hollywood Pets”.

  8. Death of a TV sports commentator Bohdan Tomaszewski

    I have a vivid memory of TV news of his death in 2013 or 2014. Remembered TV material all over; very popular here [Poland]
    Now….time passed I forgot. February 27, 2015 they announce AGAIN his death! Cmon people. Only James Bond lives twice! I was in awe. Shocked.
    Of course I was googling my memories – nothing. Timeline changed-no trace!
    He died twice. I won’t be surprised if he’ll die soon for the 3rd time! Maybe he was dying more times before too.
