I enjoy the Mandela Effect, I don't believe in it but I find it entertaining. However, this one took me a little by surprise.
I've always had an interest in Easter Island and what happened there with the statues the indigenous population built. As most people will know, almost every available resource was used on the Island and there is no trace left of the people who built them, they may have even starved to death.
However, I see this picture yesterday and was like "whoah" Out of all the pictures I've seen in my 40+ years of the Statues not one of them showed any hats but apparently they have hats now.
Ok this one freaked me out because I definitely remember them non-hatted! Also a non believer in the ME but really interested in it!!
I think with this one it's maybe because they don't all have hats, just some of them. I've attached a copy of the pic I know best and there are no hats there, so I think that's why I don't remember them.
It's still weird though because I literally don't ever remember seeing them with hats before!
Yes, because research has recently been published about the method of getting the hats on
Yes, that's cool and everything but it doesn't explain why I've never seen hats before. I've watched more than one documentary on EI and not once did they mention hats and being as the hats are so interesting....you think they would have been mentioned and not just ignored.
"We've made this really indepth documentary on the Easter Island statues, we've spent 18 months on the Island, National Geographic will love it."
That’s either an old photo, Photoshopped, or a replica.
I visited Easter Island earlier this year and think I saw pretty much all the statues, at least the ones that still looked like statues! Most statues don’t have hats. I think I saw one in a line of about 13 that did...
