A rejtélyes Mandela-hatás

Létezik egyáltalán a rejtélyes Mandela-effektus? Nézzük meg a 10 leghíresebb példát, és döntsd el magad, hiszel-e benne!  

Top 10 Examples of the Mandela Effect

Has it ever happened to you that you had a clear memory of something that never happened or it happened in a different way? The Mandela effect is those curious instances in which many people are certain they remember something a particular way, but it turns out they’re incorrect.

The name of the theory comes from many people feeling certain they could remember Nelson Mandela dying while he was still in prison back in the ’80s. But Mandela’s actual death was on 5th December 2013, despite some people claiming to remember seeing clips of his funeral on TV.

Monopoly Man

Monopoly is a fun family board game. The face of the game is Rich Uncle Pennybags. People think that he has a monocle, but he doesn’t. He has a lot of things to make him look old and rich but even if people swear that he wears a monocle, based on the image of Uncle Pennybags in the front of the Monopoly game box actually he didn’t have a monocle at all.

Pikachu’s Tail

Pikachu is a short, chubby rodent Pokémon. It is covered in yellow fur with two horizontal brown stripes on its back. It has a small mouth, long, pointed ears with black tips, brown eyes, and two red circles on its cheeks. There are pouches inside its cheeks where it stores electricity. It has short forearms with five fingers on each paw, and its feet have three toes. People usually say that there’s a black mark on Pikachu’s tail, but in reality there isn’t.

Sex and the City

The iconic romantic comedy television series produced by HBO is remembered by most of the people as Sex in the City, although the posters and advertisement show Sex and the City. Many people insisted it was “in” at some point, even posted old photos that show “in” instead of “and”, but the truth is, it was Sex and the City from the very beginning, so the old photos that were posted were just supporting false memories.

KitKat

Have you ever taken a break, and eaten a KitKat? Have you ever wondered why they removed the dash in between the Kit and the Kat? Turns out, there wasn’t any dash in between the syllables to begin with. It was just KitKat from the beginning. It’s just our mind remembering stuff again based on the figment of our memories, which turns out to be a product of the Mandela Effect.

Star Wars

The phrase “Luke, I am your father” came from the movie we all know and love, Star Wars. Although we remember Darth Vader saying his child’s name before revealing the true identity of his father, in reality, Darth Vader told Luke Skywalker “No, I am your father”. Even if it’s the most famous line of the “The Empire Strikes Back” movie few people remember it correctly. Even James Earl Jones—the man behind the voice of Darth Vader—recalled his character's line starting with "Luke" instead of "No" in an interview.

We are the Champions Lyrics

We all know this legendary Queen´s song, the final lyrics of which is “No time for losers, ’cause we are the champions… of the world!” But in fact, there is no “of the world!” there – only earlier in the song. The song just ends with “’cause we are the champions”, driving so many people crazy because they feel a hundred per cent sure that they’ve heard it otherwise in the past.

Curious George’s Tail

Curious George - who was best pals with the man in the yellow hat - is the main protagonist of a series of popular children’s books by the same name. He is a little chimp monkey without a tail which completely goes against basic monkey anatomy. Yet, a lot of people claim to remember seeing him use his tail to swing from the trees.

Snow White’s Evil Queen’s Saying

Most people remember the evil queen in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs going up to her enchanted mirror and saying “Mirror, mirror on the wall Who’s the fairest of them all?”. This line from Snow White is probably one of the most famous lines of any Disney movies. But if you re-watch any version of the movie you will discover that this phrase has never been there. The real phrase is actually “Magic mirror on the wall Who’s the fairest of them all?”

Forrest Gump

“Mama always said life is like a box of chocolates.” or “Mama always said life was like a box of chocolates”? What did mama actually say? Well, the first version is true: “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” But if you look for the movie clip on YouTube, the title usually is “Life was like a box of chocolates”.

Henry VIII Portrait

Henry VIII was a famous king of England. He is commonly depicted as fairly tall and heavyset. Possibly, the most famous image of him is a Renaissance painting, painted by Hans Holbein the Younger around 1540. He is standing tall and boisterous in the picture, dressed in a king’s attire, holding a pair of leather gloves in one hand. If you have a look at the picture, there is nothing in the king´s right hand but many people would swear he was holding a turkey leg or drumstick in his right hand, as a symbol of the king´s comfortable lifestyle and affluence because he was often associated with the huge feasts he would have.
