Do you remember the classic kids books, the Berenstain Bears?
Does that spelling look funny to you? Does it look better like this: Berenstein Bears?
An article from Vice.com has been making the rounds on the internet. It brings into question why we remember things a certain way.
The article highlights a segment of the population who believe in parallel universes.
The Berenstain Bears was written by Stan and Jan Berenstain, but some people swear that it is spelt with an E.
There are people who believe that the BerenstEin believers are actually from a parallel universe, and there was some sort of glitch, and now the people from that universe have joined the rest of us but have this memory of it spelled with an E.
It is called the Mandela Effect, a term coined by Fiona Broome, because she found that many people, like her, have a vivid memory of Nelson Mandela dying in prison in 1980.
