    "I watched a video by the Angry Video Game Nerd recently where he touched on the Berenstein vs Berenstain bears discussion. I was super intrigued, as I also fell victim to this line of thinking, so I looked into the Mandela Effect. Sure enough, there were other examples, too! This article is a great resource to learn about a bunch of cases in which the Mandela Effect has affected our ways of thinking."

    "our memory is literally the most unreliable mechanism we have your brain recreates and changes a memory every time you try to remember it things like "captain crunch" and "luke, i am your father" can easily be explained by people quoting the phrases regularly no-one is gonna say "cap'n crunch" and also "luke, i am your father" contextually makes more sense than walking around spouting "no, i am your father" to people"
