Fake news, no shinobi.

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

My thoughts and prayers go out to the ninjas.

@  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.

the key lime pie so far has been my fave of all the flavors. some of them, like the chocolate strawberry, are....I dunno....kinda too sweet. Liked the peep ones, but I could only eat one at a time.

 

Also, there used to be a knock-off oreo in Wal-marts stores that had poprocks in them. they only cost 89 cents. I miss them immensely...mostly just for the price.

So Walmart should be putting out Jelly Donut Oreos this weekend. Might be good. I'll have to see if they have any tonight.

Never been a big Oreo eater.  I've had Classic, Double-Stuff, and Mint before.  But I had no idea so many other flavors were out in the wild.  Just never really looked.  May have had lemon, but that might have been an off brand.

 

I did find a bag of Oreo Thins with Coconut filling at Albertsons.  Tasty, but rather odd having them so thin.

This morning on Kathy Lee and Hoda, they had exclusive Oreos (chocolate cherry truffle and vanilla peach) made to pair with red and white wine. Made just for the show. Not for sale.

Local Walmart finally had the Jelly Donut flavor. The jelly filling flavor overpowers but it's still pretty good.

As has been said, the Oreo Thins also have coconut with chocolate cookie and salted caramel with the white. Coconut is pretty good but I didn't much care for the salted caramel.

I advise making dirt.... cream cheese and powdered sugar , vanilla pudding and whipped cream  (think cheesecake)  layered with crushed oreos.  Usually found under the name "Heavenly Dirt" as far as recipes go.    :love

I'm loving the Salted Caramel Thins, but I'm a Caramel fiend. Saw the Jelly Donut ones here but just didn't feel like picking it up. Seems like it would just be a golden  with a berry flavor in the middle, and despite loving the Salted Caramel, Goldens aren't usually my thing.

 

Now if you haven't picked up one of the Oreo Candy Bars then you are missing out. Rich Belgian chocolate over a creamy filling with chocolate cookie bits. MMMMM!

Both the Blueberry Pie and Key Lime Pie Oreos have been reissued.

They're both really good from what I recall with the Key Lime being the best.

Blueberry is apparently grocery store exclusive while the Key Lime *might* be Meijer exclusive but I'm not 100% sure.

I don't think we have a trader joes in a hundred miles radius...which is funny because this while towns become so damn yuppie you'd think we'd have a few more "upscale" choices when it comes to supermarkets (we only have a price chopper and a shoprite....though there is an ACME one town over....but they wont ever sell me rocket power'd roller skates, iron birdseed, and a giant magnet)

When you live in an area where they don't sell Key Lime Pie oreos, you have family that does live in the area that does sell them, you reach out. Apparently. Still love golden birthday cake better.

I'm not sure if it was supposed to replace them, but I find that the Apple Pie Oreos are much better than the Pumpkin Spice from last year.

 

I was also impressed that I was still able to find the Fireworks ones. My daughter absolutely loves them!


I'm not a man of many words.  When I do have something to say, though, I'll try and make it worth your while!
