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

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.

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)

I've heard 8:30 pm Eastern/Pacific.

And if you don't mind spoilers, there's a wonderful summary of the first episode already up at: http://www.animation...?articleID=1482

Some of the designs for the character armor/costuming is wonderful, think I even saw Appa in something... ;> I shan't say more!

I wanna see Zukko either come to his senses or get the crap smacked outta him ike he so richly deserves. I'm still holding out that his siding with his sister at the end of Season 2 was part of some scheme on his part since I just don't want to accept that he's that stupid. But if he is...someone please kick his ass.

I still feel bummed that it looks like Iroh won't be teaching Aang firebending. I am very curious to see what they do with him, whether they keep him locked away, or some other easy out to avoid issues since Mako passed away, or if they let him get it back together and escape at some point.

Yea, that trailer is amazing. I got the official release of the high res version w/o all the screaming fans, it's amazing.

I agree. He needs to clean up his act and realize what side he's been on all along.

Also, I wanna see what Fire Lord Ozai looks like!

I think there's a good reason why we haven't seen Zuko's dad's face... I suspect he's burned too, and its not a Father-son relationship Iro's been trying to recapture ..but an elder brother-younger brother one


but then again I like to over complicate things

Zuko doesn't Trust Azula... but he doesn't trust himself more... he doesn't know who he is...so he fell back on what he knows.

I'd missed quite a few episodes from Book 2, so picked up the box set last Tuesday to catch up. I'm now pretty psyched for Book 3 to begin, and thankfully for once YTV seems to be airing it concurrently with Nick; hopefully they keep it up for all 20 episodes. I'm still hoping that Iroh is the one to teach Aang firebending; at least initially.

I've got to say, though, after watching all of Book 2 over the last week that my favourite character is now probably Toph. With my intermittent watching (mostly thanks to YTV's weird schedule) of Book 2 when it aired, I never really gathered an appreciation for her character. However, upon a repeat viewing, the writers really did a great job developing her personality... especially considering the fact she's only appeared in 15 episodes whereas the others have been on since the beginning. It's impressive how many strong female characters this show has; both good and evil. I'm hoping this season Toph will get a chance to show more of what she can do in terms of bending ability against some of the already established Masters/prodigies like Azula.

I'm also really looking forward to seeing Azula being taken down... badly. Rarely have I actively disliked an antagonist to the extent I do her... usually cartoon villains have at least a couple redeeming qualities, and a somewhat sympathetic backstory. But Azula is terrible, and totally insane.

Toph is already badass. She intuited metalbending.

And Iroh had it right: "[Azula]'s crazy, and she needs to go down."

Nice, can't wait. It seems like forever since the last season ended.

Really hope Iroh is around and still plays a part in everything. He's been one of my favorite characters on there, and it's an archtype we really don't get that much, at least for more than 5 minutes prior to mentor dying to provide his student with rage/determination.

No, the general that Aang tried learning firebending from-- out of order-- which resulted in Aang severely injuring Katara.

Yeah, one of the few firebeander that could actually teach Aang how to. It would be intrestign to see them meet up again, after how much he's matured since their last meeting

I don't think Zuko will come to his senses per se. I think he'll go back with Azula and either be frightened by his newfound complacency or riddled with nagging doubts and guilt. I think he's going to end up being the one to kill Azula, and he'll die in the process. There is no easy, clean way to wrap this up. No kiddie-approved bloodless coup. The only way out is to kill Ozai and Azula and seat either Iroh or the Earth King as Fire Lord. It still won't be pretty, but it will end the war. At least for now.
