originally posted by: oleus art bell was talking about the nelson mandela death memory thing pretty recently on one of his visits back to hosting coast to coast am. i hadn't heard anything about this anomaly before, it's pretty fascinating. there's definitely a firmness in so many people's point of view on mandela and billy graham in particular that seems to be well outside of random...art was 100% positive that he was living under the assumption that mandela died in prison, and that it was a well covered story. very bizarre....

Going back in time using google trends, i've compared three search interests, mandela death vs. mandela is dead vs. mandela dead and as you can clearly see from the graph there were 14 searches in August 2007. One of those searches was Me googling from the Netherlands. I remember searching for it and being surprised he is alive but i don't recall what was the onset for me to notice something being 'off' but whatever it was i wasn't alone because 14 of us around the globe noticed something that day.

14 people that day noticed, not sure on the statistics of it, but there are currently over 3 Billion internet users, I am pretty sure on any one day there will be 14 matching searches for all manner of strange and wierd things, some may not even exist and some will be just down right filthy!!

For some reason, I distinctly remember Billy Graham's funeral. I know he is still alive, but I honestly do remember him dying. His funeral was a grand affair, with the President [ ? ] and several heads of state attending.
But....I think it may have been a different person and people were making a big deal of Billy Graham giving the eulogy. I heard his name connected with it so much, my memory tells me it was his funeral.
The reason i started this thread and the reason i mentioned 2007 is because whenever i try to tell people this did NOT start in 2013 after Mandela died people usually dismiss it.
Troubling because I'm a big Star Wars fan and distinctly remember Darth Vadars famous line being, "Luke I Am Your Father" , not, "No I'm your father."
