As someone who’s always preferred a quiet life, I’m always astonished (or perhaps aghast) when something I do attracts attention.
This week, it’s the X-Files.
Really, they created an X-Files (reboot) episode around the Mandela Effect.
* blink, blink *
I think it’s Season 11, Episode 4, “The Lost Art of Forehead Sweat.”
I’m about to watch it on Hulu, and try not to act like a hyper-protective parent, as if the Mandela Effect is entirely mine.
Of course, my website kind of started it all. And yes, I popularized the phrase… but with the help of a few hundred thousand people who’ve had something to say about the topic.
But still, seeing it in an X-Files episode, for heaven’s sake… that’s just surreal. It’s like a part of my life, and it’s on the TV screen. I can’t seem to grasp that this is happening. Even if the show is tongue-in-cheek parody/humor.
At the moment, I’m stunned. And kind of chuckling over how weird this is. And then I’m back to blink-blink mode, kind of overwhelmed.
And, because this is how my mind works…
Since that TV show will bring a lot more attention to the Mandela Effect, I threw together some free iron-on designs that fans can use for DIY t-shirt printing. They’re linked in my MandelaEffect.com article, That X-Files Episode.
