Fake news, no shinobi.

Turns out the President set the whole thing up as a publicity stunt. Very rude.

The ninjas will go away, it will be fine.

@  Paladin : (13 August 2020 - 08:02 PM)

listen; i'm sure there were very fine ninjas on both sides.

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 August 2020 - 07:50 PM)

My thoughts and prayers go out to the ninjas.

@  Cybersnark : (13 August 2020 - 06:36 PM)

Can we just let them have him?

@  Bass X0 : (13 August 2020 - 06:18 PM)

The president has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the president?

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:08 PM)

At first, I obviously thought I was correct.  Then I thought perhaps the spelling had changed for some reason.  Copyright/trademark law is weird, ya know?  Now I just accept I goofed. XD

@  Otaku : (13 August 2020 - 03:07 PM)

See, that one directly applies to me.  Apparently, I'd been misreading and mispronouncing it wrong for over 30 years... and I still slip and do it the wrong way much of the time.

Hey, do you have any grapes?

@  Otaku : (11 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

I dunno... it sounds kind of quackers to me.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 August 2020 - 05:17 PM)

That would be nice....

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2020 - 04:36 PM)

I wish I could just sit by a pond and watch ducks for a while.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 August 2020 - 03:52 AM)

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 August 2020 - 03:16 AM)

Crisis of Corona.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 06:16 PM)

Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

'member Pepperidge Farm?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

Before the 'member berries there was Pepperidge farm. Pepperidge farm remembers.

So, I watched the documentary and what was interesting was getting more information about stuff that I already knew about.

 

Just some examples:

  • I already knew the fact that the phrase 'Let them eat cake' was both A) a mistranslation (the original phrase was «Qu'ils mangent de la brioche», which means 'Let them eat brioche) and B) never said by Antoinette, considering it came from a book written when she was the 9 year old princess of Austria.

    But what I didn't know was that the quote was apparently first attributed to her 50 years after her execution and even then, it said it was a rumor
  • Knew that there were only seven people actually imprisoned in the Bastille when it was stormed. Didn't know that of those seven people: four of them were forgers (who were quickly rearrested), two of them were people who'd nowadays be in a psychiatric institute (one of them was an Irishman who thought he was goddamn Julius Caesar), and one of them was like a sex offender
  • France spent a shit ton of money helping us over here in the USA during our War for Independence. Turns out that they literally spent three times their annual income on the war. (They said that France had an annual income of 600,000,000 [didn't say if it was dollars, euro, pounds, or even livres] and the costs of helping us get our independence was nearly 2 billion).
  • I knew about how Louis XVI and Antoinette attempted to flee from Paris, with differing opinions on whether or not they were going to flee to another country so they could get help taking back their country or trying to rule from another palace near the, I think border between France and the HRE, and then they were captured and this eventually resulted in their execution. Well, didn't know that one revolutionary who supported keeping the monarchy actually convinced the rest that the two of them had been kidnapped and didn't flee on their own accord, so they remained safe at least for a little while.

But obviously the greatest part of the documentary was when THE ROSE OF VERSAILLES WAS IN IT

I did not expect a PBS documentary about a historical figure to reference an anime that was only loosely based on her.

Yeah literally the last few minutes of the documentary was talking about how Antoinette is seen today and it was filmed at like some exhibit about her in France and they showed something in the exhibit that was just depictions of her throughout history so like paintings, photos of her portrayals in movies and TV, and one of the images was from the manga.

 

 

I did not expect a PBS documentary about a historical figure to reference an anime that was only loosely based on her.

I mean to be fair, this was an image from the manga which was more focused on Antoinette at first.

 

Remember in comparison to the anime, which basically had nothing about her actual childhood, the first several chapters of the manga are about her childhood in Austria.

 

Speaking of, I gotta get the second volume of that manga, think it's already come out.

I know its a triple post but apparently that Rose of Versailles alternate universe side-story school game came out last hugging year and I still have no idea what the hug the game is about.

 

I mean I know it's like a romance game but that's it.

No, it has an original main character and a lot of the other characters are just based on Rose of Versailles characters. Like the Oscar character is named Nozomi, Antoinette is Mari, etc.

 

The principal is hugging Louis XV.

Is it a really bad dub like Headmasters where the english is super dry and doesn't even attempt to be more dramatic?
