Stoics are dumbasses.

Their philosophy is sound, but they are not sound. There's just as much dumbasses in Stoicism as in any ism.

I take what I like from Stoicism, and tell the rest to go fuck themselves.

We'll bring LMNO in on the celebration too

I have never had any expectation that my Discordian writings would be lucrative. In the event that they are, you can buy me an expensive Scotch to share with you to celebrate success.

Might also be thinking of this guy, whose mouth butt is somewhat reminiscent of a spider's fangs

A penny might have been a shitload of money during the reign of James

I could have sworn that someone different played Winston Zeddemore in Ghostbusters II, because Ernie Hudson passed on reprising the role.

When I read this sentence the first time I accidentally read it as if there was a comma between "on" and "reprising". That would've been a great Ghostbusters movie.

Metal. As. Fuck.

I have a Mandela effect thing, that I'm not sure anyone else had. I could have sworn that someone different played Winston Zeddemore in Ghostbusters II, because Ernie Hudson passed on reprising the role. It would have been reasonable to do so, because as I would find out later, he wasn't very happy with how downplayed his character was in the first movie and how it didn't really help his career that much as was promised. However, Hudson definitely played Zeddemore twice.

I remember Winston having a much larger role in Ghostbusters than he actually does in either movie, but I think it's because I watched the cartoon version a lot as a kid. But I never paid that much attention to the behind the scenes stuff.

Now I want to watch the Ghostbusters again just to see.

There are a LOT of movie and media Mandelas. They even say folks remember movies that never existed like "Shazam!", a movie about a genie named  Shazam that had Sinbad cast as the genie. Never happened, but I personally remember the movie clear as day from when I worked in a video rental place around 16 years ago.

There's also a LOT of Star Wars ones. C3po's silver leg is one. Another is the infamous quote "Luke, I am your father" is now "No. I am your father". There's even footage of James Earl Jones repeating the line with "Luke" in it on a daytime talk show. You'd think he would know.

There's a James Bond one where Jaws meets a woman who smiles at him and they just click for no reason. I never saw the "original" but folks swear she used to have a mouth full of braces and the metal teeth thing was their motivation in the scene.

The first time Winston uses a proton pack in the movie is at Gozer's Temple. That is the only time you see him busting anything.

That can not be right. Maybe it is, but I could swear there were transition scenes with him carrying a pack.

No transition scenes. The first time he busts something on screen, it's a god.

I don't know if this qualifies (probably not), but I remember as a kid in the late 80s/early 90s playing these "choose your own adventure" games via telephone hotlines. I was curious one day and decided to look them up online, but they're not mentioned anywhere I can find them (or my google-fu is poor) except on one forum post somewhere with no replies. Maybe the Time Lords cancelled their existence.

That sounds familiar, but I'm not sure if that's because it seems plausible that that would have existed at some point.

I may be wrong but I think the Lord's Prayer example results from differences between the KJV translation and the traditional Catholic recital, which is heard more often in popular culture.

The rest of it is definitely due to time travelers or the Large Hadron Collider, though.

You're correct. Catholics end it at "but deliver us from evil".
During Mass, the priest then continues, "Deliver us, Lord, from every evil, and grant us peace in our day. In your mercy keep us free from sin and protect us from all anxiety as we wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ." They changed the wording of the translation in 2011, but that's not how I was brought up so, obviously that's all wrong

That's no big deal. I mean, so what. So what if everything I ever thought I knew is a lie and nothing has any meaning anymore? It's par for the course in this decade.

Honestly I don't know what to make of the Mandela Effect. I can see how some details can be easily overlooked and filled in by the human brain with what seems like logical stuff. I'm sure that most of it is the result of our ability to fill in the gaps in perception automatically, combined with generally fuzzy memories and some bandwagon-itis. But sometimes a bit of it, or a similar phenomenon, will strike me as a little too weird or on-the-nose. I usually ignore that though because as I've said before, the central tenet of my cosmological system is that the universe is boring and nothing exciting ever happens.

I'm 100% on board with the lost civilization thing, though. Even if it's BS, it doesn't hurt anything to believe it. We are postmodern after all, and reality is helpless to define itself without us. Might as well make it interesting.

See that's what I'm saying!

A LOT of stuff chalked up to the so called Mandela Effect is fluff and head tricks. It's the little things like Sicily being much closer to Italy on a map or whether it was "Jiffy" or "Jif" peanut butter that I can shuck off as mis-remembering. But I've seen old school preachers truly unnerved by some of the bible stuff. It's stuff that they taught from their whole lives now saying something different, and apparently having always been so. :fnord:

I'm pretty interested in hearing more about the Mandela effect as it relates to the Bible.
