There are many things one could easily forget but looking at this map made me think:
I have read up on all of this and watched a few hours worth of stuff on the history of Berlin and this air lift thing. No matter how long I look at it nothing about it will ever fit what I remember about it. The nation was a little bigger in modern times and Berlin was in the middle cut in half by the Berlin wall. Half of the city was in West Germany and the other half was in East Germany.
The city that was known as cut in half by the iron Curtain is now known as the city behind the iron Curtain. I know people are going to say well you must have made a simple mistake of misremembering it as many people didn't really think about it. But I was a WW2 and cold war history person, I am willing to say I could be mistaken about many, many things but to me this is like if I got out of bed and DC was in the middle of CA instead of being on the east coast. I am not saying it's impossible I forgot but it was no small detail to me. Also I had never heard of the Berlin air lift until a week or so ago after asking around about this. It didn't even make since to me because West Berlin was inside West Germany as I remembered it.
Other smaller things that I had noticed but am %100 willing to say I remembered wrong:
1) I recalled only 4 people in the car JFK was in when he was shot in 1963, there are 6.
2) Japan northern half being about where South Korea is, it's really the southern part that is where south Korea is.
3) ET I thought said "Phone home", now ET says "Home phone" : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iyFijjikkeM
Anyone have there 2 cents to throw in?
