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)

So yeah, fans have a right to be upset. Getting on their backs over it is just nonsense and I'm kinda tired of seeing this new trend of hating on the haters just because. No one has said anything overly offensive except that weird comment about cutting him open with a spoon... Other than that there is no reason to be pissy at the people that do not like this casting choice.

This is the last I'm going to say on the subject. I don't know what has made my posts so seemingly incomprehensible of late, but its getting tiresome.

Getting upset is one thing. Fans have a right to be upset. I would think that after 9 damn years on this board it would be understood that I think people have a right to be upset when something they deeply want gets pissed all over and jived upon.

All I'm saying that there's a point at which the anger becomes ridiculous and overblown. And that is ALL I am saying.

If that makes me pissy, if that makes me a hater, so be it. I'm not going to go round-and-round about this with you, or anyone else. I'm hugging done.

If I have THAT big of an issue with just you I would take it up with you off the boards. icon-waspy.gif

Pointing out that Megan as April could set the internet ablaze isn't really an out of line thing to say and to be fair, nobody called you a douche bag.

Its just...predictable, that people are going to hate on her no matter what she plays. Make the role April O'Neal and its even worse. She's going to be terrible. I know it. You know it. I doubt anybody is going to disagree. I only mentioned the jive thread because that happened here. The rest of the internet is even worse. Megan Fox + Michael Bay + childhood property is the perfect cocktail to induce excessive, internet rage.

I didn't miss something, this is still the movie where the Turtles are gonna be aliens, right? Seems like the casting of April would be almost beside the point in discussing the film's potential.

That said, as someone who's been following the Turtles cartoons and comics forever, I'd be lying if I said I thought there was anything particularly TO April for an actress to screw up. As long as Fox can identify which Turtle name goes to which color bandana, I'd say she's qualified.

Last time it was brought up, people speculated that Bay might have goofed in saying that based on comments from another of the filmmakers.

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 get it, but I also get that the movie is about 4 turtles, and April is supporting cast. Neither of the original April characters in the films served to either elevate or their respective movies, nor did they detract from them. They were just there. In that respect, Megan Fox might be a great choice in that she'll be a visual aid. No one's going to see this for April, and no children are going to care weather she's a dynamite actress or not.

Quite honestly, those of us that grew up with the franchise are likely to be the only ones that get THAT upset about it, and we'll all go see it anyway.

Hahahahahahahaha. I'm not sure how race got into this, but judging by movie Ironhide's Blackness, I'm hoping for an Asian male April in TMNT. I'm not the slightest bit worried about Fox being cast in this because Michael Bay will be wiping his ass with TMNT anyway. I'm expecting three blue turtles, who wear astronaut costumes and use their laser guns to fight the evil Shredder, who is a werewolf, and the sinister Krang, who is a female human with the power to control the brains of reptiles. Hell, what I just typed is probably closer to the TMNT source material than the movie will be. Damn you Michael Bay. You SUCK.

I'm ambivalent on Megan Fox. It'll be one of those movies where the lines and writing itself will be the part that amuses me.Also, people change, maybe she's improved her skills.
