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

@  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.

Hey, do you have any grapes?

@  Otaku : (11 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 August 2020 - 05:17 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 August 2020 - 04:36 PM)

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)

'member Pepperidge Farm?

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

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

Much belated reply, Tyranno, but I gotta say, I really liked all of those, especially "Link Up Me Hearties, Yo Ho!". It really felt authentic to the RiD characters, voices, and style. Hard to pick favorite bits, but I was giggling at basically everything to do with Coelagon. XD

 

Separately, more on a bookkeeping end, very nice post layout, because synopses are a very good thing to have. = ]

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Not what I had in mind, though that is an interesting idea.

I was thinking of making TR Kup into Kup's mentor. (Kup and Kairos's similar appearances would be Kup paying homage to Kairos.) My thinking process on the name went something along the lines of:

Kup is old.
Old Kup has experienced a lot of time.
What is a name connected to time?
Kronos is the Greek deity of time.
The Greek language has two words for time, Kronos and Kairos.
Kairos starts with "k" like Kup.

And since the concept of "kairos" is based in timeliness, Kairos would be known for shooting targets at just the right moment.

I did not know this thread existed before today. Seeing this just makes me miss Chronicles of Cybertron even more (we need to bring it back!). ▲ndrusi, I'm totally stealing that bio and name for my CW Jet Blast Off. I previously named mine Take Off, until I remembered there already was a TF with that name.

Oh yeah, totally agree. Holy cow that was a well-written fic.  I'm actually in the middle of a re-watch of RID (well, re-listen. Tablet near the sink while doing dishes) and that really, truly does "sound" like the actual show.  Not enough kudos, Tyranno!

I know, right? Tyranno has always had that touch. I remember his Animated fiction was dead-on as well. I pretty much tend to incorporate a lot of his bios into my own fanon. :)

Repugnus and Backstop have a holiday party and Undermine's invitation gets lost in the mail so he thinks they snubbed him. After he has everything set in place to ruin the party, the invitation shows up and he has to scramble to undo everything and still show up on time.

With the IDW Universe ending and the likelihood of future Revolutionaries stories being slim, I knew there was a void to fill. I present...

 

Series: IDW Universe
Summary: KUP VS. KLAW! Surviving a seemingly fatal experience on Cybertron, the ancient Autobot Kup finds himself alive on Earth. Thrust together once more with his human pal Action Man, the revolutionary pair find themselves facing down a group of old enemies... with new tricks!
Notes: Inspired by Movie Night by Callum "Jalaguy" Tozer.
 
And unlike most other things, I do actually have an already planned follow-up to this. Two in fact! Hopefully y'all enjoy this.
 
(Special thanks to Jalaguy, Broadside, and ZephyrX9 for beta-ing.)
