I mean, I just made that up. You're probably thinking of The Mandela Effect.

Thats only if a large number of people share a similar mistaken belief the person was dead.

So if its just one person,  then its just forgetfulness?

I would maybe label it “being mistaken but yeah.” If I think something has happened that didn’t, I’m wrong. If millions of people do it; that’s when it qualifies as “Mandela Effect.”

Guys, everyone knows 3/16/2022 is when the election gets overturned, and Donald Trump as chief justice of the Supreme Court names Nelson Mandela and JFK Jr the rightful president and Vice President of the UQA.

What has JFK Jr been up to!?

He has kept a very low profile since his magazine “George” folded!

It’s bizarre that Caroline has been much more in the news…

Lost a friend to cancer complications on Saturday. Blood related cancer, just like Louie Anderson. Except this guy was a clean living workout fiend, by his own account. And 15 years younger than Louie Anderson and probably 150 pounds less. Fuck cancer and fuck genetics.

I've lost three friends, all younger, in the last four years. That might not seem like a lot if I were 85, or had tons of friends. But I'm not, and I don't. Total age between the three....143. I reckon if I live to be 170 or so, I can statistically turn us into an average foursome. I got this!
