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)

Speaking to the press, Boulder Media Studio has confirmed working on two new Transformers cartoons.

While the title of one show remains unnamed, the second show is titled as Rescue Bots Academy. Along with the two new Transformers shows, the studio will also develop a new Littlest Pet Shop series and a series based on Micronauts for Hasbro Studios.


Did people know this was coming?

We know they are doing a "Choose Your Own Adventure" style YouTube Rescue Bots cartoon made largely out of clips of the previous show. I think maybe we got a name for that but I don't remember if it was Rescue Bots Academy or not. So no idea if this is it or different.

-ZacWilliam, we also knew Hasbro bought this animation studio and had them working on a TF cartoon of some sort but not What or for When.

The YouTube CYOA thing was announced as "My Transformers: Rescue Bots Adventure" and was specifically called out as using pre-existing footage. So even if the name was changed, I can't imagine why an actual animation studio would need to be involved.

'Rescue Bots Academy'  Does sound like it'd be a proper follow up to the show's events. It could still be the CYOA series, since that kinda makes sense as a 'training' type thing; but it could go either way.

Could be just to make a few framing sequences and composite it all together with new dialogue and stuff maybe? Or maybe not. Shrug.

Here's hoping not. I'd obviously be much happier with a new original continuing RB toon. Extra points if the "Academy" actually gives the existing RBs a bunch of new recruits to train.

-ZacWilliam, or uses or explains those "cadets" that turn up in one episode of the old show with no names or explanation and then vanish never to be seen or mentioned again.

From the press release:
 

The Studio, whose current slate includes animation for 'Transformers', 'Little Pet Shop' and 'Rescue Bots Academy' and 'Micronauts' for Hasbro Studios, as well as 'Danger Mouse' and 'Dorothy and the Wonders of Oz' (Warner Brothers), is ramping up to deliver innovative animation and storytelling across multiple formats and genres.


Reference to "multiple formats" could be referring to the YouTube thing, I suppose. And someone's gonna have to edit the clips together and whatnot, possibly add in some miminimal new material. And I can easily see a "Rescue Bots Academy" framing story where "you" are the cadet and the clips are an instructional thing.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I wonder which of the possibilities this actually means:

A) Chase is not in Rescue Bots Academy

B) Chase has been recast in RBA

C) RBA is only a CYOA clip show for YouTube and doesn't need new voicing for Chase.

Sounds like he doesn't have a lot of solid info on the new show other than he's not been asked to be involved. The bit about it being cast outside of LA doesn't tell us much about it far as I know.


-ZacWilliam, it does feel weird to me that they'd recast a character like Chase at this point if it was a full ongoing show featuring the same characters...

I just find it highly unlikely they'd announced the continuation of Rescue Bots as the YouTube thing and then a while later announce some other, separate new show. I obviously could be wrong, but I think they are almost certainly the same thing.

Whatever this Academy thing is, it has new animation and assets being made for it for sure. Boulder Studio's job lists for the project were specifically looking for designs of that and animators with Toonboom experience.

If Rescue Bots Academy lives up to its name, I'm guessing we wouldn't see Griffin Rock, where Chase is stationed as of the last episode of RB.

 

Well, except every Sunday night at dinner. Not sure how many of those will overlap with the episodes, though.

 

I don't think Blurr or Salvage had specified assignments, so they might join Heatwave and Cade at the Academy? At the very least, Blurr would keep the back-and-forth with RiD going, and Blurr was answering to Heatwave in his last RiD appearance.
