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.

@  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)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

20 minutes of bi's, tri's and shoulders with the bands.  Curls, Hammer curls Lawnmowers, Chair dips, lat flys, reverse tricept extentions and some ACL work to help with the old man popping and clicking in the joints.  Feeling the burn..  Then again I did a pyramid set with the Curl's and hammers.

Took the protein drink after my workout. It was chocolate flavored and, guh, it made me crave for MORE chocolate! I'm going to drop a cocoa tablet into it, hehe.

Didn't eat too good tho. Ice cream and fries and stuff.

Ive been doing a lot of intervals on the treadmill lately.  Wanted to get in a really good workout today with at least an hour of cardio but its raining here in Vegas...super weird.  Also, the moving company has an inspector coming over tomorrow to see how many boxes they need to bring when they load up my stuff.  This is the great thing about the military.  When I move, they send in movers who do everything for me.  When I get to where Im going, they drop it all off, set up some of the furniture and everything and it doesnt cost me a dime.  Only thing I need to do is pack up some Transformers....sorry, you are not getting your hands on my G1 Victory Saber set along with the rest of my G1 collection.

Alright weight updates are going to be a bit farther apart.  The scale I had access to went to South Carolina with my friend Rich....   Hitting Chest and Back tomorrow (Figure I know enough Push-up variations and Band exercises for back to get a 40 min workout in).  Tuesday will be Legs since I'm off wednesday.  Wednesday will be Shoulder's Bi's and Tris.  I have an opening shift thursday so I might hit some cardio when I get done with work, and Friday will be total body.) I gotta do this myself now, but the wife wants me to keep doing it.  She doesn't want to see my hard work go to waste.

Thank you. Despite being long and miserable, I was out specifically to accomplish stuff. The exercise was a happy side effect and I don't count it towards the total.

If I counted in all the walking I actually did (since 90% of it is work related, the rest is ice cream.) We'd have doubled up on the miles last year. :)

Got a 30 min workout in today. Banged it out in the living room with no problems.  Did a whole bunch of push-ups and back exercises with the band and tossed in a quick five minute Ab routine.  Think I'm going to drop that in to each of my workouts so I work Abs/core everyday.  Didn't take any breaks so the intensity was up.  Also if you can get down to the pharmacy at your local market I recommend getting the one a day Vita-craves.  It's the only Vitamin I've ever taken consistantly since they are gummies and easy to chew and swallow.  I've been taking them since late november and by now I've usually had crazy wicked colds.  I can say they've helped keep me from getting sick when the rest of RR had this year's "BIG FLU"  (I never get the flu shots)  

Another recommendation is to get yourself a container of Pre or Post workout stuff.  I'm using the stuff Rich left me and it really does help (It's stuff you can find in a lot of sports drinks but also BCAA's (Amino acids the basic building blocks of Protein) Helps with energy and focus.  They can be pricey though that's why I'm thankful Rich gave me a couple that he wasn't using anymore (he was using Protein shakes w/ Creatine) 

 

You don't need the Sups, but I have a lot more energy after my workout when I take them.

Liquid hate! LOL! Luv it :)

Forgot my shaker at home yesterday so didn't get my chocolate protein fix until late night. Was a little miserable at having no net in the evening that I didn't go have a workout, guh. Mother is sabotaging my diet with donuts and rice and pizza and cheese bread, ugh.

But I did start the week by waking up early to jump rope and eat an apple-y breakfast so I have that going for me, which is nice.

So last year, I set some pretty lofty goals and achieved none of them really. This year I am still about the same weight or even heavier than I was last year. So this year, I am going to set a more reasonable goal, 229! I started this year off at 258.8lbs, and I am already down to 254.8lbs, so I am on my way! Yesterday's brutal work out helped towards that.

 

We went to the gym, did 17 minutes on the ARC Machine(stepper mixed with an eliptical) to get a good warm up and some cardio. Then did some Knee raises, followed by the oblique machine, Barbell curls, Crunches, situps, and ending with some tricep pressdown. After getting a protein shake, we went outside and spent two hours fighting wisteria vines that had overrun my fence. After that, we were wiped and went out for some well deserved dinner!

 

Okay, throwing in my walks for the year plus the ARC machine yesterday.

57.18 + 14.04 = 71.22 miles!

Alright, misused the Keg Scale at work today and the new body weight measurement for me is 280.4.....  So I lost that holiday 4 and an additional 3lbs this week, and seeing as my chest and back were sore from Chest day I'm sure some of that is inflamation weight.  WOOT.  Tomorrow is cardio... seeing as I am doing a three day split and stacked to strength days back to back.   Thursday I'll do Bi's Tri's and Shoulders.
