These 16 People Are Sharing The Time The Mandela Effect Got Them

    Our minds are constantly playing tricks on us, and here's the proof.

    At this point, I think we've all fallen victim to the Mandela Effect once or twice.

    For those who don't know, the Mandela Effect is when a large group of people believe an event occurred when it did not.

    We asked the BuzzFeed Community about times they've gotten caught up in a Mandela Effect memory, and here's what they shared.

    1. "On the double stuffed Oreo packaging, it’s 'double stuf' with one F instead of two, so it’s not 'doubled stuFFED' Oreos, they're 'double stuf Oreos.'"

    2. "Devon Sawa did not exist. The movie Casper existed, sure, but I never heard of Devon Sawa until adulthood."

    3. "JCPenney vs. JCPenny. I swear when I was younger that second ‘e’ wasn’t there. Still bugs me that they changed it!"

    4. "That Neil Armstrong is dead. I feel like it should have been such a big deal and more common knowledge that he died, but a lot of people still think he's alive."

    8. "I have a super clear memory of when I was a kid walking in Blockbuster and looking through movies, seeing the cover of Shazaam with Sinbad on it, and my mom asked me if I wanted to watch it, and I put it back on the shelf, and said, 'Maybe next time.'"

'cause I had asked my father, who ate that stuff practically weekly when I was a kid, and he said there were never bagel chips in there."

    14. "Pikachu did have a black tip on his tail. If he doesn't anymore, someone must be messing with the time stream."
