Kennedy Assassination

Who did it?

The Kennedy assassination is the subject of one of the biggest conspiracy theories of all time.

That fateful day in Dallas, 1963 when live television caught the presidents death in the open topped motorcade is, for good or bad, one of the iconic events of the 20th century. Countless theories ranging from him wanting to escape the privately owned Federal Reserves monopoly on lending money to the US government with interest, to the mafia and right through to aliens have been in circulation ever since.

The actual shooting was filmed. For years, the hunt has been on for the "man behind the grassy knoll" by conspiracy theorists who don't buy the official story that Lee Harvey Oswald fired from a warehouse.

But does the video itself now show something not present at the time?

Nelson Mandela

The reason for the "Mandela Effect" term

MMDE: Nelson Mandela died in prison in the 1980's

Current: Nelson Mandela died in 2013

When Nelson Mandela's death in 2013 was announced some people were surprised. This is because they were sure he'd already died, and they even seem to remember where and when - in prison in the late 1980s. Individual people would have normally just dismissed this as something they didn't quite remember correctly. Maybe they misheard it wrong, or maybe it was someone else who died and for some reason they were sure it was Nelson.

Then - somehow - this notion started getting discussed on the internet and this began a stream of "me, too!" type responses. Once this number became too big to ignore, and those experiencing it were not just dismissing it as faulty memory, we had what became known as The Mandela Effect.
