Two things I learned from this episode.

The first is that while it's all stupid confabulation, there isn't a lot of lying. There's tons of lying in the other fringe belief episodes, but in this one people's supernatural tales are "I think dogs sat different" or "is water too wet". It feels like there's not much you can gain from lying,. It makes sense: the ideal Mandela Effect experience is a fact you remember wrong that other people also remember wrong., so itrewards relatability more than sensationalism.

The second is that there's no core belief behind the Mandela effect narrative. Even people like the moms from the starchildren episode talked about crystals and vibrational energy as if it was shared knowledge.  I could tell there was some kind of canonical set of 'real' Mandela effect events, and true, there were a couple cranks yelling about gangstalkers, but  I didn't see any kind of explanation or purpose people believed in. No shadowy organization, no secret plot, no complex dog-whistle language. It's a conspiracy theory without a conspiracy or a theory.

Someone get Umberto Eco on the phone, I have a pitch for Foucault's Pendulum 2.

my fav mandela effect posting is the fruit/froot loops guy, who thought he was constantly shifting b/w universes with alternate spellings of froot loops, and taped plates to the wall to see if they would turn into different shapes:



also, congrats kthor on 8,000+ Cum Shirts!

This guy made his own subreddit for ME and awarded himself the Mandela Effect Plates Prize 2021. There were no other contenders for the award.

Someone should introduce the "why did ovals stop existing" guy to NASCAR. He'll feel so validated.

Late to the party (had to put this one off after starting a new job), but the oval graphics joke reminded me of a weird little British DOS game called Ecstatica that had entirely ellipse-based graphics.

This episode was way cummier than I expected!

For some reason, I just completely fucking lost it in Baba Booey Flintstones. Just full-body wheezing explosive laughter. I want to see clips from that person's Flintstones loaf so, so badly.
Well,

I hope the guy who doesn't understand how seasons work is actually from another universe. That would be easier to accept than the alternative.

i didn't find anyone mentioning this on a cursory search but the "hot topic sexy corner" is just the back corner of a spencer's, right? i think they got it confused since spencer's and hot topic were visually similar at the time but spencer's have always had the sex toys and fetish stuff at the back corner of the store.

In my experience Hot Topic always had piercings and lingerie in the back corner. A more PG sexy corner than Spencers.
