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)

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

So after I managed to spend some time on Law Twitter on this issue, this is really really bad for Vic.  The Judge is really really fed up with Screech and Percy and the Vic Stans and is basically show his hand.  And Percy, being of sound mind and awesome lawyer skills, tweeted this after the Judge basically told him not to.

 

 

Oh Percy.  Where did your parents go wrong?  After filling your pants at the TCPA hearing, how could you even think you're playing football?  Bro.  The game is over.  You lost.  Now we're just seeing how badly you lost at that.

 

Ironbite-Nick is also refusing to read the transcript on the grounds that it'll make Ty look really really bad to his livestream victims.

Did something happen? Where did "the judge told him not to" come from? I know Greg Doucette raised funds to buy that hearing's transcripts but IIRC they're not out yet.

Judge ordered mediation.  During said hearing, he implored both sides to not rile up the "community of anime" due to the amount of death threats that he received on an inactive Facebook page.

Welp....seems like mediation happens Thursday for Vic.  If they can't come to an agreement, Judge Chupp rules on the remaining claims.  And it doesn't look real good for Vic.

 

Ironbite-almost over.

That's naive. Even after it's all dismissed there will be months if not years of appeals.

While true, it all depends on how this gets settled. If it's settled in mediation, then it's totally over. If the judge dismisses the whole case based on TCPA and SLAPP, it's over. Not even appeals save this lawsuit from going into the textbooks on what not to do.

Ironbite-I'm predicting it's settled in mediation but we'll see

Gonna keep posting in this with something like an update.  Looks like mediation happened today and...it didn't go so well for Vic.  Screech, that's Nick for those without the playbill, is really really really mad on Twitter right now.  I mean, for a man who just spent a few days in Paradise, he's mad.  Like super mad.  It's...beautiful almost.

 

Ironbite-I have a feeling mediation didn't work out and the Judge now gets to dismiss.

The thing is, this didn't have to happen.  At all.  I mean Vic would've still sued Funimation et al anyways but he would've done so with a competent legal team in order to get some sort of money from at least Funimation.  Instead, Mr. "I'm gonna get my sugar daddy to ligate for you and everything will be fine" comes out and turns this into some sort of counter-blow to the #metoo movement.  And you know what?  It hasn't gone the way Vic  wanted it to at all.  12 claims dismissed from the bench on the TCPA hearing and it's not looking good for the remaining 5.  If this was Nick's counter to any type of equality movement, man has no clue what he's doing.

 

Ironbite-ahh well...Friday can't come soon enough.

Are you sure? From the deposition and some of Vic's tweets it really seems like if this lawsuit wasn't being financed free of charge from Vic, he wouldn't have bothered.

He might be able to sue Ty for malpractice when all is said and done.

 

EDIT: If he can, you know, afford it after all the lawyer fees and the sanctions pile up.

Yep, apparently Screech Rekieta's livescreech involved him saying mediation ended at an impasse.

 

And of course the grifters will convince him to appeal so.... probably two more years of this dumpster fire...

Judging from how Screech is behaving on Twitter this morning, I'm thinking Vic had some harsh words with him and Percy.  Like words that included "lawsuit" and "you two" and "you're not going to be my lawyer going forward you unabashed hack".  Stuff like that.

 

Ironbite-cause he's lashing the hell out 8 hours later and still going strong.

Good on Vic if so.

 

I mean, he's still a creepy, sick bastard. But one of the cornerstones of our justice system is right to a fair trial. And by all accounts, that's something the man hasn't gotten with his publicity seeking legal representatives.
