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)

@  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.

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)

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

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

So my mom wants me to get my riding mower fixed. It is a hand me down 15 year old John Deer tractor that won't start. It won't even turn over even after I replaced the battery. I told her that I didn't want to, as I had a perfectly good push mower and that the half acre, wasn't that bad to push mow even though it is on a hill. She insists, and says that she will pay for it. So, the only place around here to get it fixed is a John Deer place, due to the fact that I don't have a truck I had to have it picked up, which cost me $125. Then they had to replace the Key switch before they could even work on it, which cost me another $25. Then, they have to replace the entire starter, replace a coil in the engine, clean and rebuild the carburetor,  which runs me a grand total of $625 to fix my mower. To which my mom replies, "That is too much, just tell them to keep it."

So now, I have to argue with her that paying $150 for the things that I already agreed to, for them to have a used mower to sell, is ridiculous. So now, she is only going to pay $300 of it, and I get stuck with the rest for a repair that I didn't even want to do in the first place!

Okay, have an actual thing to vent, so may as well do it here.

 

So last night I was working toward a QSE at my work. "Quality Service Evaluation". Basically someone from corporate is coming in to make sure the store is clean, things are being done properly, and everything is in official working order.

 

Ended up getting up a bit late. Didn't have a lot of time to make lunch. Anything I had would have taken too long to make. Meaning once it was done, I'd have to leave. Didn't have time to stop by any place either. Only possible thing I had that was 'quick' was some leftover soup. Just barely enough for a small bowl. That's all I got to eat, and went to work after that. Which I use a bicycle to get to.

 

So yeah, there are four people. I have my two employees working on taking orders, making food, and cleaning this or that while I focus mainly on cleaning up and making sure every last thing is labeled, going out of my way to get every last item labeled that I can possibly find, AND being I only had one little bowl of soup to eat at all that day, my body eventually starts shaking and wanting to shut down. Still I push through, work my ass off to insure we are closed properly and cleaned.

 

Nope. Get a text today about how disappointing the close is, and how 'labels weren't done'

 

Um, bullshit I spent all night on that!

 

I was pissed. I sent him a long text about how I was almost ready to quit, how I'm upset that I tried my hardest and it didn't seem to matter, how I'm sorry I seem to be a failure, and most of all, that I have no idea what a good close is to him. Being he NEVER CLOSES so I have nothing to go on.

 

He's basically yelling at me for doing a crappy job at something he refuses to ever do himself.

 

I then shut my phone off. I work 5- close tonight, which I do intend to work. We'll see how things go down, because at this point I'd rather just sell my game systems and the like.


It's a secret to everybody

I'm not in a great mood, because a item I ordered from a Ebay seller back in Feb, says posted and have a tracking number but the item hasn't appeared and the seller seemed to have disappeared from Ebay so I've opened a complaint to try and get my money back so I can buy the item from a different seller, what I'm buying is the third party Victory Leo, I want to upgrade MP Star Saber to MP Victory Saber, the tracking tells me nothing of use beyond its postage date which was the 8th of Feb and a week ago was when it was meant to arrive but there been no change in the tracking info since the 8th of Feb, I gave it a extra week and nothing, not a single change beyond the seller suddenly giving up the ghost on Ebay, now I got to wait to see if there is a response from the seller thou my gut says that highly unlikely and likely to be resolved by Ebay, I hope as I got no real info of use to locate it, wherever it is in the world!
