We hate to have to break it to you, but your memory sucks. If you've been on the internet recently, you've probably heard of The Mandela Effect, and if you haven't? Well, Google it, because we're almost certain we're remembering the definition wrong. (If you haven't been on the internet recently, thanks for landing here!)

Fact is, our memory is so prone to mistakes that scientists argue eye witness testimony is one of the most unreliable ways we get convictions. You can either choose to believe we are putting innocent people in prison based on the easily manipulated memories of your peers, OR you can just assume the multiverse is real and somewhere right now Loki is reading some Bearenstein Bears. Human beings are prone to confidently being super wrong about things. But don't worry, that's why we're here to set the record straight, 12…wait, no, we forgot one…13 examples at a time.
