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.

Recently, I found out that this show has been brought to Blu-ray. I have been wanting it for a while now to complete my Timmverse collection, but I just never picked it up for one reason or another. However, the series has gone on a massive sale recently, and I picked it up for $16. It is back ordered on Amazon, but it should be here in a couple weeks. When it arrives, I plan on watching it, and giving each episode a little review here.

You're in for a treat.  It doesn't suffer from what I call "Kamen Rider Syndrome" where every episode is stretched out for two for some god damned reason and it's pretty well tightly written and animated.  The story arcs that dominate the show are there and you'll be able to pick up on the comic book inspirations.  Just, don't go into this expecting a lot of Batman stuff.

I actually feel it was better for that, as it made the writer look to other, less obvious places for plots.


It's a Newcomic (apparently)

I often wonder what the show might've been like if that restriction had never existed. Honestly I do wish that were the case; I really don't think anything of value would've been lost if "The Batman" was never made.

You know I haven't seen any of The Batman other than the movie Batman vs Dracula. I mainly got it because it had exclusive figurines in the set, and I am addicted to getting those little figures that DC is packing in with their movies.

Do iiit!

There's a few eeeh eps (say, Hawk and Dove, the visit to Apokalips) but the single eps are beyond better than the first season of Justice League. JLU s1 is mostly stand alone stuff but things get EPIC in season 2! Get hyped!

You would need to watch choice eps in Justice League s2. A Better World is essential.

Oh and watch the best direct to DVD DC movie, Crisis on Two Earths, which Dwayne McDuffy meant as a bridging movie between JL s2 and JLU s1. Explains how the tower was built, which guys were recruited first, and the invisible jet.

I actually have Crisis on Two Earths, but it has been a while since i watched it. Dwayne McDuffy was a great writer though, so I guess I need to watch it again.

 

I thought that justice league star crossed was the movie that bridged JL and JLU.

I rewatched it recently and the end of the Cadmus arc disappointed me. It's this big huge story that has Superman struggling with morality and the public perception of him and it ends with two of his greatest enemies.

And then Epilogue comes along with Amanda Waller and she goes

"You know who's great? Batman."

Season 3 is also a lot weaker than the first two.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Ah Justice League, I thought that was a great show, when it came along I never heard of the league or some of its charaters, Batman was kind of my window into the show as I saw Batman The Animated Series, it was after I saw Justice League and the power of the internet that I saw The Animated Series follow up, the New Batman Adventures and when I saw that series, I thought it sucked compared to the preivous one and it was meant to be a sequel, clearly someone screwed up in the writing department because I cannot recall a single good story in that series and things were a confusing mess, with Nightwing being around, it was like, Who the F*** is this guy? Also the animation was nowhere near as great as the previous series. While I know better now, I always liked Batman as a charater but I have my standards, I didn't like the look of Brave & the Bold, so I chose not to watch that because it looked like something from a by gone era of animation and Batman was wearing blue instead of black.

 

Anyway, with Justice League, I was vaguely aware of Superman as a charater but the charaters like Green Lantern, Marshan Man Hunter, Hawk girl, I didn't know existed, the Flash I was very vaugely aware of thanks to the live action TV show, but I knew nothing about him but then I didn't really understand the Flash back then as I was still a kid at least in mind and I was completely unawares of the existances of these big name charaters, as for Wonder woman, I recall seeing a little of that early TV show but again I didn't understand what I was seeing, same goes for Supergirl movie, I never understood what I was seeing aside from a girl dressed up a bit like Superman. Anyway, when Justice League appeared on TV, it kind of hooked me but I did miss a few eps during its airring so when Unlimited appeared, I became pretty confused as to many of these charaters that were on screen thou Green Arrow certianly caught my attention as he flirted with Black Carnay but again thanks to the internet I've been able to see all of the eps again and see those I missed. I do say Justice League is a great show, it started off in general in a pretty good manner, with a alien invasion for its first story but the second story being about the Green Lantern surpposely commited a crime of genoside, drew me in more thou other stories were not as rememberable as those two, at least to me. Still after all these years, I still think Batman is Superior to Superman as a idea for a hero, sure Superman has all of the powers but Batman uses gaggets and brains to deal with his foes and despite his lack of powers, I think he is the most dangerous member of the league, for he is unpretictable compared to the others thou one story that connects to the Beyond series, shows desptie everything, he is one of the most compasionate people around.

 

Kids TV today looks like its filled with rubbish, they need real culture back in the form of some of the classics such as Batman the Animated series and Justice League
