    How bizarre, I've never seen the dilemna spelling before. Dilemna... is that how you said in the OP? I had to concentrate to even type it lol, it looks so wrong, and it's also got a red squiggly line under it!

    As for those bears, I have no idea what PP's are talking about.

    I feel like a lot of the Mandela effect can be explained away. People remembering dates and deaths, etc. wrong. Sometimes I'll go "didn't such and such die?", there's 8 billion people on this planet so the chances are that there's quite a few people misremembering the same fact at the same time.

    This dilemna thing, though. It's people from different age groups from different parts of the world. Some who are very good spellers and actively learnt to add that "silent n" into the world! It's so incredibly weird!

    I was taught dilemna. Though my mother was a spelling nazi

    My dh who is also a great speller says no way is it spelt ^^^ like that. We have actually argued about this before when our eldest asked how to spell it. He thought it was hilarious that I was spelling it wrong - I agreed to disagree but knew that I was right

    Except that you were wrong!

    So were you taught this at school? I am absolutely fascinated by this!

    I agree that a lot of them can be rationalised, and it's not hard for spelling and grammar mistakes to proliferate to the point where people don't even question it anymore. For example, the expression "I couldn't care less" has been almost completely replaced by "I could care less" over the last few years (even though it makes much less sense!).

    I'm seriously losing my mind over the Berenstain Bears though.
