Another glitch in the matrix

The comedian Sinbad was not in a movie where he played a genie. I am sorry to say.. A few people I talked to remember him fondly being in the movie Shazaam. It came out around the same time as Kazaam with Shaq.

And all of that is plain wrong.

Shazaam did not exist. Shaq did play a genie in a tremendously unmemorable and awful movie. But Sinbad did not..

This is the latest ‘glitch in the matrix’ that even got me.
I recall this myself. I remember him in the outfit. I don’t quite remember the name of the film as some others do, but I am very clear on my memory of him being in an awful un-funny movie when I was younger.

All of this is fodder for crowds of people who have a new-found appreciation of the Mandela Effect. Every day.

For those yet unaware, or those who do not quite know the label to call their strange memory lapses or sudden shocks to learn that reality is different from what they thought, it is called the Mandela Effect. There are people–and lots of them including Stafire Tor on an old Art Bell show that somewhat started all of this–that believed Nelson Mandela died in prison in the 1980s. They recall his funeral. They remember the news headlines and nightly news reporting. And they were shocked that he rose to the presidency of South Africa in the 90s. Because, to them, he was long dead. 

The time traveler himself!? Mandela!?
There are many other ‘glitches’ that so often occur since. 
You may know of the famous debate: Berenstein Bears or Berenstain? You can self-Google and medicate if you want to be in that debate. 

There are countless others piling up on Reddit and other forums. People in large numbers mis-remember things. And somewhat creepy: They remember the same mistaken memory. As though a timeline shift occurred.. 

I have had personal oddities relative to this subject. Very personal ones that occurred when my father almost died in intensive care in 2013–right around the same exact week that Nelson Mandela died (for the second or first time depending on your memory).. 

After a bit of time, you grow used to your memories becoming defunct as timelines alter. I have at least .. 

Including last night, when I found out that Sinbad did not appear in the movie dressed like I remember him appearing in a movie. 

I asked someone younger in my family if she remembers. Her response? “Who is Sinbad?”

The timeline for him, at least, has shifted…
