Fake news, no shinobi.

@  Sabrblade : (13 August 2020 - 10:31 PM)

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)

My thoughts and prayers go out to the ninjas.

@  Cybersnark : (13 August 2020 - 06:36 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.

Oh dear god not Boxy. I still have flashbacks of my previous selves dying thanks to Boxy! I'd rather walk through Tartarus (again) than try and find the park if it involves Boxy and snail tongues.

*offers Static some sake*

What is it?

It's sake. You've never had sake?

Sounds like the name of a Turtles villain.

C'mon! Would I ever do anything to hurt you?

Is that a serious question?

*sigh* *drinks sake*

Hey, Scarlet, want some?
It tastes really good. Try some.
Static's paranoid.

Have a tranquilizer, pony boy.

Yeah, good sake is good. Cheap sake is nasty. Never go cheap on sake.

It can be used like white wine for cooking, but it's quite strong like vodka. I *think* I liked amazake (sweet non alcoholic version of sake), but it's hard to get here and I forgot to get some during our trip.

Alcohol may not be a good idea while trying to pass a stone. But afterwards I'm gonna have to go to the liquor store and see what they have.

Thats certainly an option. Still, passing a stone is not a pleasant thing to go through to get there.

Thanks. All things considered, this time hasn't been nearly as bad as the first.

So, Scarlet, now that Rain's free, when's the wedding? Can I be best man? Are you gonna bring her by the bar. Can you at least try to let Oasis down easy?

Enquiring minds want to know!

I ah... Well uh... That is to say...

'Vigorous throat clearing'

Me and Rain hadn't been dating for that long before i screwed and got her lost. So the idea of marriage hadn't even come up. Plus, do you really think Major Delight, back, would have even entertaining the IDEA of me proposing to Rain. He'd have hit the roof.

I mean, i thought about maybe possibly poppint the question sometime kinda maybe. But uh... i lost my nerve.

As for Oasis. Do you have aby idea how terrible i feel right now. Ever since that night and the few times i've been to see her. I mean, she knew about me and Rain and... i never thought she liked me like that...


You pick Scarlet in quite the pickle there haven't you Cal.

Honestly, i love your Oasis character and i don't know what do.

I mran, Scarlet got a (sortof) harem thing and he is blind.

I'm kidding. :)

But yeah, in tryth i'm going to see how Zam has Rain respond to Scarlet and co to see how well she's recovered and if she'll be a recurring NPC like Anchors before i figure out what to do

That bar scene was a lot of fun. I hope Pcean ends up as Night Caps girl. He deserves more happiness right now, after proving his hero status.

:: I don't have a Mayhem RP character.

But really, I don't think Zam ever really had much interest in using my characters. He used Ocean once and that's about it. I think Oasis would be understanding now that Rain's back. I think she'd be happy for the two of them. She'd still hope for the occasional visit from both of you.

I'd let Fnu decide how things are going with Ocean. If they're doing great, then great. But she wouldn't stick around long if she's being ignored.

Aria's actually the one I miss the most. But now that Rhapsody's no longer in the RP, I just don't have anywhere to go with her.
