I hadn't seen that before! I bet you're right.

I was banned from commenting on the main Mandela Effect site because I suggested someone should see a doctor. I wasn't being rude at all, and I wasn't saying they were all crazy. This particular guy seemed really distressed. But they deleted my comments and banhammered me.

I wonder if they'd let you post that graphic on the site. Probably not. They really only like to host people who subscribe to the fantasy. Pro-leaning doubters can sometimes be tolerated. Skeptics? Pssshh.

Does anyone remember when there was no Mandela Effect? I can remember a time in the past when it wasn't there.

I say you are just fine the way you are.

But as long as we are just declaring new realities, how about you and I drive around in a van solving mysteries that are mostly real estate scams involving fake ghosts? I guess solving Mandela/Matrix glitches could also be on the schedule.

Best example I have is Doctor Who. since the 70's I would have sworn that when Romana regenerated one of the options was a sort of very definitely male Viking warrior type. Recently with the arguments about the first female Doctor I went back and nope no such thing in the clip I found on YouTube. Alternate realities, or my memory scrambling up two separate event? Obviously alternate realties.

I suffer from a corollary of the Mandela Effect. It's being completely unaware of something that's brand new but is made to appear/seem that it's been around forever. For example, apparently there's an entire city in California somewhere that's only inhabited by black gangsta wannabe rap artists with dreadlocks and bad gold teeth, and of whom you and I have never heard ... until we do when they finally get their ups on the TMZ website (or their TV show). Then it's an all out love-fest and even a "look back at a great career" for ShBozo (or WeenerDawg or RootiCanal or SkinnyB or...) as if he's been making music for 30 years when in fact he's only 20 years old and has been in the industry for barely 6 weeks (and has no idea who Bozo really is), yet somehow already owns a Gulfstream loaded with white women and has half ownership in U-Haul™. Oh and he's either fathered a child with a Kardashian™ or he could have been the father. That corollary.

Help! Help! I've been struck with another Mandela!

In an online discussion today of Martin Gardner's novel, The Flight of Peter Fromm, and odd memory bubbled up.

I remember someone starting a thread back at the JREF about the death of Martin Gardner. But a few posts in someone quoted his son to the effect that Martin was still very much alive.

I can't find this thread. Maybe it was at another forum. Sometimes I looked at the Richard Dawkins Forum before it imploded.

Headlines today are saying that Winnie Mandela has died. But she already had passed away years ago too, right?

I read the comments on that site. Rather than look at the obvious (hman memory is fallible, and influenced by multiple factors,) they thout time travel and parallel universes were more probable.

I KNOW I learned this in school! was common. Even if your memory is perfect (which it isn't) that just means you were taught something false.

perhaps unrelated, but i spent a fairly long time in Africa ( south). And several people i spoke to said that in their opinion, when Mandela died, the actual death was not made official for quite some time.

Supposedly for all kinds of political reason of one sort or another.

They were not talking about the difference between actual death and official death being in years, but more in weeks (several)

A few people mentioned it, and that at that time there were all kinds of rumours of his death circulating a (few) weeks before it was made public.

I got the impression that many people kind of doubted the S.A. governments official statements on all manner of things ...kind of as a general sentiment. Sort of like the distrust you might see amongst some people in the west towards their governments and government agencies, and official versions of events....but just with a much wider % of the population thinking like that in SA

Well the S.A. government did have a history of torturing people to death then claiming they died somewhere else for other reasons.

What would have prevented Mandela's family from announcing his death when it happened?

[Favorite white SA pres at tribunal] "Your honor, it was the damndest case of mass suicide you ever saw. There were 65 of them way out in the bush digging this huge hole. Something about a barbecue. Then the death camp, oops I mean plantation manager turned his head for just a minute to light a cig and poof out of the blue they all shot and killed each other at the exact same time. So they just buried them there in an unmarked grave because we believe in moving on. Yeah, that's what happened. We really wish we could have got it on film because we knew nobody would believe us. It's too bad our camera was in the shop that year, I mean week."

[Judge] "How many times has this happened in the past?"

[Fav pres] "Oh just 32 times your honor."

[Judge] "Okay good, your limit is 64. Don't let it happen more than 32 more times or we'll have to put out a stern memo. Dismissed."

Well, in Tom Baker's first episode as the doctor he was playing dress-up with various outfits with the Brigadier shaking his head in disapproval. The first of the outfits was a Viking outfit. You probably just mixed the two.

Oh noes!

This is worse than a Mandella. I may have found an artifact.

A brass penny 1991D!

Our world never made brass pennies. I found it in the register at work. There it was all shinny brassy among the copper plated pennies.

Did someone cross over from another empirical matrix with a purse full of these?

(I did find a brassy penny, but there's a less fantastic reason it exists.)

I think there were some brass pennies in the 1940s. Pennies were made from a brass core coated with a copper alloy. There were some manufacturing errors where pennies got minted without the copper coat. Those are rare.

What you have was probably made with a zinc coating that was then heated like this:

Well, I'm positive that shemp died in 1977. So, clearly we have entered a paradox.

Does anybody remember Donald Trump dying in a Skittles accident? It's very unfortunate that his double is bald and now has to wear that awful hairpiece 24/7.

While we doubt the government's stories as much as anyone else, I don't remember anything even vaguely like that happening here at the time of Mandela's death.

We knew he was infirm for ages. We knew he was ill nearer the end, and there were regular reports of people visiting him. He had a close friend and assistant in Zelda La Grange, who was with him throughout his last days and weeks. It forms part of the book she wrote.

Quote:
The book, titled “Good Morning, Mr Mandela”, is La Grange’s tell-all account of the time she spent at Mandela’s side and, according to excerpts and reports in the weekend media, includes insights and descriptions of the squabbling and power struggles that took place within the Mandela family both before and after the Nobel Laureate’s death in December.
