I know, Creatrix. Since discovering this thread I've been going back through everything I thought I knew about my own stomping grounds. On Capitol Hill, aside from the Capitol itself and its wings, there have always been three Senate buildings (Russell, Dirksen, Hart) and three House buildings (Cannon, Longworth, Rayburn), only now, there's a fourth House building right after Rayburn called the Ford House Office Building. And there's a Senate fountain on the Capitol grounds that I honestly have never once in my life seen or heard about.

Ok, so many of us are experiencing time shifts, but we are not talking about why this is happening? Maybe it's because with the way the world is gearing up for war. Maybe there is a huge Nuclear war that kills all. Maybe TPTB are altering time to change the world to a more favorable outcome.

1. Mandela died in prison in the 80s. It was insinuated that the prison guards did it.
2. Billy Graham died.
3. Australia did not have a pointed tip. It was by itself, except for New Zealand which was to its northwest. It was far away from any other landmass.
4. There were many bombings in the late 80s in Ireland. It was a very busy time for the IRA.

Betty White died last year as far as I remember. I watched Golden Girls on numerous occasions with my grandmother as a child and I remember the news stating that she was the last of the Golden Girls to die. This would also mean that somewhere along the line Rue McClanahan died as well, but I don't remember it as she wasn't really a known name to me.
I didn't have much time to do research into pictures or anything yet so I will do that later. If anything else comes to me I'll be sure to post that as well.
Compelled To Post...
I always thought I was good with geography. Looking at these online world maps, Australia does seem out of place. I remember it being like a big island out in the middle of nowhere with NZ being a good distance away...and all other land, for that matter.
I have a way to test this out. I have a world map that has been in storage for a while. It is an older National Geographic map, framed, circa early 1970's. It is an older one that still has U.S.S.R. on it. I am going to have to make an hours drive out to my storage unit just to see the map and see if my memory has failed me or if something else is at play. The suspense is getting to me now. I will either bow my head in shame of my dysfunctional memory, or take a picture of what I *know* I remember and post that picture on here. Either way, this question needs to be settled...at least in my mind.
As far as the others...Mandela: Never gave it much thought until I realized he was alive a few years ago. Graham: I'm so sure he died...but the available information says I'm wrong. I have known that it was Hiroshima AND Nagasaki for years...but that old footage of the bomb going off and the aftermath haunted me as a kid...I couldn't sleep because I was afraid that someone was going to drop a bomb on *us*.
Well, I will be leaving in about an hour or two to go check that map. I'll post my results.
