I am shocked that people say "I thought a celebrity was dead, but just found out that they aren't. THE MOST LOGICAL explanation is that I traveled through time".
No, the most logical explanation is that you were simply wrong.
So many people are saying that they KNOW that Billy Graham died years ago, yet he is still alive now, so it must have been a mass time slip.
No, other famous preachers, such as Oral Roberts, HAVE died, and are going to stay dead, and Billy Graham has had health issues which forced him to give up his full time ministry. You didn't exhibit time traveling super powers, you just got the facts screwed up in your head.

OMG I just had to check on the internet before posting this to prove to myself that Gary Coleman, child actor from Different Strokes was still alive.
He was in the news a while ago for some reason, and I turned to my husband and said "but he died a few years ago" he just looked blankly at me, but I clearly remember seeing the footage on TV and they just kept playing parts from the show so there was no mistake who they were talking about. There were big headlines, like 'Child Actor Gary Coleman dead at 32' or something.
I've been thinking about this a lot lately, but can't find anyone else that remembers him dying.
I also remember Nelson Mandela and Billy Graham. What the hell is going on?
