Mandela effect is this weird phenomenon where a popular object, person, event or line from a movie is remembered wrongly or differently and not just by one or two people but nearly everyone. More like a Collective mistake or collective false memory. Example: 1. Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump didn't say "Life is like a box of chocolates." He actually said, "Life WAS like a box of chocolates". 2. Looney Tunes NOT Loony Toons or Looney Toons 3. That golden robot in Star Wars actually had silver legs. 4. Mickey mouse has a naked top and doesn't wear suspenders. But what blew my mind was that the character in the game Monopoly does not wear a monocle! But WHYYYYY do I imagine him wearing one? And the tweedle twins in Alice in Wonderland did not wear any caps with propellers. They weren't propellers, they were flags! I have lived a lie my whole life. Have you heard of this Mandela effect madness? Are you a victim of one? Have you got other examples? Are you gonna go google images to prove Monopoly guy did not wear any glasses or monocles? What about this? The famous headphones: Beats by Dre? Or Beats by Dr. Dre? No cheating.

That comes to my sense and I guess I have lived to lie also, just only now I notice this.

Tell me if this is a good example: people often say money is the root of all evil. I hear that all the time, in every walk of life. But it's from Scripture, and it's misquoted. The actual verse says the LOVE of money is the root of all evil.

I'd consider that. It's a very common misquote, which are often corrected now these days.
