People Freaked Out On Reddit Because They All Had The Same Plates

People are going nuts on Reddit over a common possession: these frickin' plates.

But Redditors in that thread quickly noticed something familiar: THOSE PLATES.

Does this look familiar to you?

Apparently, basically everyone in the United States owned these plates at some point — or still owns them today.

Each one of those links is a Redditor posting a current pic of their plates.

One by one, Redditors starting posting proof that they have those same plates in their cupboard right now.

It's like Plateception.

Apparently these plates are made by Corelle in the '70s, and this particular design is called "Butterfly Gold."
