First of all I hate this fucking term. Mandela shouldn't be credited every time someone has a memory lapse. Example: "I lost my keys! Oh, wait! Maybe I left it on the kitchen counter, when in fact it was behind my asscheeks. Must've been the Mandela Effect" It's not the Mandela effect if you have bad memory dumbass! 2nd of all What happened to alternative theories? Let's say you have an alternative theory about a film released ages ago. Why the fuck do we need to bring Mandela into this? Homeboy in Africa doesn't deserve credit for your creative thoughts about films! For Realz! Conclusion: The Mandela Effecti is sheep speak. A dumbass with Alzheimer's invented this term on Facebook so they don't look stupid for having terrible memory and now all the sheep are following through.
