    So I’m looking into the Mandela affect at the moment, one I’ve come across is Picard crystal. There is merchandise and info available on it. Can I hell remember him having a Crystal, I’ve watched them countless times.

    Can anyone remember Picard crystal?

    I seem to remember him fiddling with a crystal.

    You mean something that never happened but that some people "remember"? I remember hearing about that a few years ago but I thought it was beyond crazy.

    That’s the one, some of them are just silly but others are actually quite unsettling.

    There was a terrorist attack in New York that broke the Statue of Liberty, why do we never talk about that? Why is 9/11 thought of as the 1st attack on US soil if there something that severe?

    I've never heard of an attack on the Statue of Liberty. You're sure these people are not confusing Ghostbusters II with reality?;)

    It was an attack specifically on the SoL, it was just damaged. It’s the Black Tom attack.

    Well, maybe it's simply because it was a long time ago and the Germans are no longer a threat while the people that did the 9/11 attack still are.

    Yeah it’s probably just something like that, just seems strange that it’s never mentioned. You know hoe precious they are about the SoL lol. Plus why refer to 9/11 as the first attack on American soil?

    Well, at least I learned something today. I didn't know about that attack. The Statue Of Liberty must have been new back then, maybe twenty years or so.

    Here's a video compilation of the Picard Crystal that Roddenberry.com posted a while back on Youtube:

    The Mandela Effect is just a bunch of people who have trouble remembering things correctly.
    JIf and Skippy peanut butter for example. People claim that there was Jiffy peanut butter, but they get the 2 mixed up.
    Berenstain Bears is another one. A lot of people claim it was Berenstein Bears.
    A lot of people thought Nelson Mandela died a long time ago. There are a bunch of other ones too. It proves that people have crappy memories.

    It’s apparently because through conversation etc you strengthen the fake memory, the more you talk/think about it the more you strengthen the memory. So you’re basically tricking your brain with a form of Chinese whispers.

    The Mandela affect is kind of like A Matter of Perspective.

    That is a good point. When I first heard about the Mandela Effect, someone had mentioned they were sure Billy Graham had died long before he actually did. I seemed to have recalled that as well, but I think it was just because I convinced myself it had happened and didn't actually experience it.

    Bingo, you trying to remember it that way coupled with your conservation strengthens the fake memory, that from my POV is the Mandela effect,
