Sour grapes for the next decade until Apophis hits.

Thank yoo for vatching hydroolic pthress chan-nel.

@  Hg Dragon : (11 August 2020 - 11:19 PM)

Hey, do you have any grapes?

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

I dunno... it sounds kind of quackers to me.

@  -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)

@  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.

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

Oh no.  Chupp took the freaking razor to the traditional haircut.  I think defendants weren't able to get across how bad Screech's little cabal of hatred was for everybody and how Vic really had absolutely no stake in this lawsuit outside of calling Percy every few weeks to find out if he won.

 

Ironbite-still, quarter of a million out of pocket is gonna be a wake up call and we'll see how soon he appeals.

Ok so Percy's going on vacation and told the court he wouldn't be available for at least a month.  SOMEHOW! he hugged up his first notice and had to submit a first amended notice.  First meaning there's more stuff he messed up with so there'll probably be a second amended notice.

Nick and Vic broke up.

 

Ok I know what that sounds like but hear me out for a second.  Screech decided to get hammered last night and play some Dark Souls.  Yeah I know.  Best game for that.  While playing the game, someone asked him about Vic.  And to that end, he replied.  Oh boy did he reply.

 

 

In case you don't want to read, Nick tried to get Vic up on the show last night and Vic just shut him down.  Then, it seems that Vic told Nick not to post pictures of the two of them together.  So all in all, NIck's coming to the realization that Vic played him just a bit more then Nick played Vic.  Now here's the problem that Vic might have if Screech decides to get vindictive.  Screech not only knows where the bodies are buried, he helped bury them.  He knows where all of Vic's dirty little secrets in this lawsuit are and I do not think he's not the type to unbury them because he's "hurt".  So for Vic to finally wake up and see that Screech is poison and just dump him like this, not a smart move by Vic I think.  But then again, Vic's not a smart man.

 

Ironbite-as we've seen...HAPPY 1 YEAR ANNIVERSERY #KICKVIC!

It's a little more complicated then that me thinks.  If you'll allow me to speculate

 

Vic got his first real bill from this endeavor.  Like we know that the Grift4Me is not controlled by Vic at all.  So when he went to Screech he found out there's absolutely nothing in the fund at all.  It's all been billed and collected for.  And this has Vic absolutely furious.  Couple this with a huuuuuuuuuuuuge lack of any convention invites and Vic is realizing that this whole lawsuit is going to cost him money.  Major money.

 

Ironbite-and it couldn't happen to a nicer creep.

So Mike got done with his analysis of the brief and....whooo boy does it stink.  Not only does Beard Et. Al do nothing to show that Chupp's decision should be overturned, they're doing the "rational inference" argument.  Because it's so god damn obvious you should just give in without any form of legal argument.  It's bad.  Really bad.  And all it does is ensure that the VicStains give another couple of bucks to the Grift4Me before it all goes away.

 

Ironbite-they really screwed the pooch on this one.

Time to necro this thread a bit because all three have filed their counters to the steaming pile of dreck that was Percival Tyrone Beard's brief.  Mike Dumford's got the analysis and I'm here to give it to you.

 

We start with Jamie Marachi's brief as Mike feels it's the shortest of the lot and therefore the curve upon which the other two briefs shall be graded upon.  And....whoo boy.

 

 

 

I'm no lawyer but in following along with the thread, I really do think that Sam made a great case here for why everything Ty wrote was wrong.  Mike does admit there's stuff that can't be refuted because it's not-applicable to Ms. Marachi but on the whole, it's a good brief.

 

Ironbite-we'll see which one we do next.

ETA: Let's add Funimation's reply as well. Ironbite-cause you know, why not twist the knife further?

Despite being vigilant, I missed out on Mike Live-tweeting Monica/Ron's response to Ty Beard's dump.  So here's the two "sessions" cause this one's a looooooooooong one.

 

 

And here's the session from last night.

 

 

All in all, I don't think Mignogna wins this appeal at all.  Beard has thoroughly shat the bed here that it's gonna take years and years and years for him to ever recover.  And I don't think he returns to the anime industry.  Even though the VicStains are going on and on about how Fantasy Soft Entertainment is gonna blow the doors off of the industry, it's a one man operation who's main product is ripping off Warner Bros. intellectual property.  You're not going to get very far doing that.

 

Ironbite-or suing your former employers/co-workers.
