How many of you have memories of these things that no longer exist or have changed?

Jiffy Peanut Butter instead of Jif

JCPenny instead of JCPenney

Looney Toons instead of Looney Tunes

"separate" being spelled "seperate"

The Statue of Liberty being on Ellis Island rather than Liberty Island

Chic Fil A instead of Chick Fil A

Well these are just a few but it blows my mind.

I remember Loony Toons, although that may be a convolution in my mind with Froot Loops (double o's everywhere)

I still spell separate wrong sometimes.

I always thought the Statue of Liberty was on Ellis Island.

I have vague memories of the logo reading Chic-Fil-A.

Another one: I was certain up until a few days ago that the name of the televangelist preacher was Joel Olsteen. But it turns out his name is Osteen. That was really weird.

The Mandela Effect phenomenon fascinates me, but to be honest I'm really hesitant to believe it's anything more than bad or false memories. I don't doubt that science, as it exists today, is unrefined and unable to explain some anomalies in nature. However, the idea that some force of nature is changing reality save for a few people's memories is a bit much to take seriously.

A lot of these conflicting memories, like those above, are extremely minor and are characteristic of the natural shortcomings of the human memory. If the Mandela Effect is real, why stop at changing the letters of someone's name? For example, go for something more obvious. If you woke up one morning and the United States was in the Southern Hemisphere, or if the Earth was an octahedron instead of a sphere, then we'd have issues. But that's not happening because it's not the sort of thing that can easily be remembered incorrectly.

"Jiffy" peanut butter is just an easily-understood confusion between Skippy peanut butter and Jif peanut butter.

I can never spell "separate" correctly without Firefox spellcheck. But this isn't really the Mandela Effect. Never trust the way people spell things, especially on the Internet. I see people all the time using "it's" where "its" is meant, and I've even seen people spell it "its'", with the apostrophe after the S.

The only Mandela Effect I've noticed in myself is that dang Thunderbird photo, which I swear I've seen in old books, but which apparently never actually existed.
