Read like Towelie.

I have had my head in my pillow and in my work so I don't even know what is going on in the world. What is going on in your world?

Have y'all seen this Mandela Effect business? I mean. I'm cool with people being taken aback because they remember something different, but this whole "my timeline", "my reality" thing... Some of these I also remember differently but I leave LOTS of room for my well known case of C.R.S., and things changing over time, and something becoming the "norm" or acceptable even if it is incorrect (i.e. "irregardless"). But hey, if you enjoy thinking your space/time continuum has changed, more power to you. I'll just sit over here, shake my head in judgement, then remind myself I COULD be the wrong one because anything is possible, I reckon.

So, I'm a contract interior designer, more like a CAD monkey. I am thinking I will get a business liscense so I can take advantage of designer discounts if they ever occur. What should I name my business? Any ideas, oh bank of creative friends?

I hadn't heard about the Mandela effect. Interesting! My memory is very faulty, but I knew Mandela survived prison and was president of South Africa and died while in retirement. Couldn't tell you the exact year. Other things are crystal clear. Irrelevant things ;^)

Business name? I'll think about it. The key is to do diligent research so no one can sue you to cease and desist using THEIR name. Kind of like the band(s) named Box Elder. There was a band in Spring Green WI by the same name as the Birmingham band. The WI band changed their name and now they are no longer a band. Now I'm curious what they are up to...

My head gets in my work, and I get yelled at because I don't know what happens on the news... I know poll workers but not news...

Yeah, just based on how much I remember incorrectly on a daily basis, I have no faith in everyone's memories being flawless to that extent. There've been plenty of things I clearly remembered one way that were wrong. It takes a "special" kind of person to assume the truth is different because of anything other than their memory (or the source of the info) being incorrect :) I think the vast majority of it is people who are remembering correctly that they heard/read something, but the something they heard/read was wrong (like so many websites people get their *cough*bullshit*cough* news from these days).
