Thanks to Wet Nayrb for bringing this to my attention.
The Mandela Effect is a phenomena where people misremember past events. A significant number of people are convinced that Nelson Mandela died in prison and had no idea he was alive until very recently – he died for real in 2013.
When conspiracy people encounter this contradictory information, they do not conclude that they misremembered or misunderstood world events. They ascribe the contradiction to scientific witchery involving CERN time machines – they believe that CERN’s activities are causing past events to change. Seriously!
Various people have extended this theory to other events. One of my favorites: I saw someone claim that Oscar Mayer (you know, the hot dog and sliced ham company) was really spelled “Oscar Meyer” and that only recently has it changed – because of CERN’s time machine.
So apparently not only has it claimed Nelson Mandela and Oscar M(a)yer, it has also claimed Brian Tew (not Bryan Tew – that’s CERN’s witchcraft) according to this lady.
