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

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.

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)

I've skipped three days this week. I've caught whatever it is floating around. While it's not been horrible in terms of symptoms, the dizziness and stomach cramps take away any desire to take a session. Starting to feel better though, so I'll jump back on it next week.

Man...Ive been pretty lazy this week and my diet has been that great.  Our work schedule has been all goofy for working out in the morning coupled in with appointments that Ive had this week for moving and its been all goofy.  

 

Good work guys on racking up the miles!

 

Great job Darklaw on your weight loss efforts.  

 

Sweat....I have a shirt that says "This isnt sweat, its liquid awesomness"  lol  Its also bright yellow for running at night.  

 

Ive been doing the shakes still this week with the veggies.  Just made a Kale, spinach, carrot and pineapple.  And here goes the first sip.....hmm...earthy.   Made one last night that had kale, spinach, cucumber, pomegranate, rainer cherriers, apple...I think thats it.  It was amazing.  

 

haha...looking for a way to mix up your chicken....let BroScience help you out: (How do I embed?)

93.23 + 1.5(run) + 5(bike) + .5(walk) = 100.23 miles

 

So had a pretty decent workout yesterday. 

Ran 1.5 miles.  My left calf started hurting so instead of doing a 30 min run I just pushed it out to 1.5 miles.  Going to start wearing a compression sleeve on the calf to help.  Also some more foam rolling

Biked 5 miles:  Figured since I couldnt do the 30 min run I got the 5 miles in just a bit over 20 minutes.  

Shoulder exercises from my surgery for rotator cuff strengthening.  

For Abs I did sets of 10, 15, 20, 25 starting with 40lbs and dropping to 10lbs.

Walked .5 mile for a cooldown. 

 

Then one of my buddies from a previous base is in town so we went down to the strip and walked around some Casinos.  I ended up on my watch with over 21,000 steps for the day when I normally only get 7-9000.  But...this is where it all went downhill.  We went to a buffet at the Mirage which is was pretty damned good.  It was also about 35 bucks with tax..but..I had : sushi, seaweed salad, inari, prime rib, mashed taters, mac n cheese, bbq ribs, beef n broccoli, veggy egg roll, crab leg, shrimp, some deserts that I dont know what they were.  I think thats about everything.  basically it was waaaaaaaaaaaaaay to much.  Ah well.  Ill get some time in on the exercise bike and eating light and make up for it.  That may not be the right way to go but its my way of balancing it out. Also, the movers come Thursday so Ill be busy during the week packing up stuff and getting things ready for them to come.

Oooooh gosh, I'm suppose to go to the gym but I'm being held captive by the tv (old eps of Big Bang Theory). I need motivation to escape the clasp of couch potato-ism! (I'm two eps from the season finale!)

Edit to say I missed my window of gym opportunity cuz I just had to see the new season episode. And the next one... I feel so weak willed... Gonna eat raisin bread... Grr.

This year is starting off wonderfully. I should really jump on the bike (I had planned to!) But my work ran long, I wound up taking longer at the bank than I wanted: I'm a little drunk, very cold, and more than a little tired...

 

Tomorrow morning: I will start again tomorrow morning.

The exercise will warm you up and burn off some of that alcohol!

 

A little bit more to add for me: 0.8 mi and 450 calories burned in a 24 min workout

 

= 101.63 mi

101.63 + 2.66 = 104.92

 

Did 100 jump ropes

stretched

1 exercise per body part, 3 sets of 10-15 reps per

10 min on the exercise bike

70 sit ups

 

Was kind of a slacker day, but Ive ate healthy pretty much all day....Im sure that carne asada burrito was healthy...

 

Back at it again tomorrow morning.  Thinking of doing some tabata workouts: Exercise for 30 seconds, rest for 10, repeat for 4-5 exercises then a 60 second break and repeat what you just did 2-3 times.  then more abs.  Or depending on how my leg feels I might go for a long slow run.

I've been doing 500 jump ropes a day before breakfast to jump start my day but I end up lying down again after sometimes, ugh. I enjoy the jogging type jump rope over the double feet jump. Which is more beneficial though? Too bad I can't add it to the miles count.

Disappointed in myself last night but gym this afternoooooooon!

Sounds like you're none the worse for wear. I increased the intensity of yesterday's workout, so although the distance was slightly less, I burned more (530 estimated) calories. Today was my day off (doing 3 on, 1 off to start), and my future updates will be a tally of each 3 day on set. :)

114.73 + 0.78 = 115.51
