Captain Disillusion, the finest bullshit detector on YouTube, does a wonderful job explaining the “Mandela Effect,” the phenomenon in which a lot of people have the same faulty memory. (Remember that movie in which the comedian Sinbad played a genie? It never happened… even though a lot of people insist that it did.)
What’s especially weird about this phenomenon is that some people have supernatural explanations for it. As the Captain says, “Being fascinated with a quirk of the mind is great, but if your explanation for it blows right past Occam’s Razor to Enter Universe Leakage, it’s kind of a problem for the rest of us.”
On a personal note, if you’re not supporting Captain Disillusion’s work, you should. He’s one of the best.
