A friend and I both clearly remembered Nelson Mandela being murdered while in jail, in '89 or '90.
I even remember walking by the tv as the news story came on and feeling saddened for the loss of a good man.
What about Abe Vigoda? Might be getting mixed up, thought he left us a few years ago, and he's in a tv commercial for some food product.
Slightly off topic -? I just saw a promo photo for Don Rickles who was doing casino stops - he looks like he did in 1956. I know plastic surgery can work wonders, but...
Good call to start a reference point for this.
Samuel T. Cohen, the father of the controversial tactical nuclear weapon known as the neutron bomb, which was designed to kill people and other living things but inflict minimal damage on buildings and other property, died Sunday at his home in Brentwood on the west side of Los Angeles. He was 89 and died two weeks after the removal of a cancerous tumor from his stomach, according to his son Paul. Read more: www.kansascity.com...
John Michael Crichton (rhymes with frighten; October 23, 1942 – November 4, 2008), best known as Michael Crichton, was an American author, producer, director, and screenwriter, best known for his work in the science fiction, medical fiction, and thriller genres. His books have sold over 150 million copies worldwide, and many have been adapted into films. In 1994, Crichton became the only creative artist ever to have works simultaneously charting at #1 in television, film, and book sales (with ER, Jurassic Park, and Disclosure, respectively). His literary works are usually based on the action genre and heavily feature technology. His novels epitomise the techno-thriller genre of literature, often exploring technology and failures of human interaction with it, especially resulting in catastrophes with biotechnology. Many of his future history novels have medical or scientific underpinnings, reflecting his medical training and science background. Among others, he was the author of Jurassic Park, The Andromeda Strain, Congo, Travels, Sphere, Rising Sun, Disclosure, The Lost World, Airframe, Timeline, Prey, State of Fear, Next (the final book published before his death), Pirate Latitudes (published November 24, 2009), and a final unfinished techno-thriller yet to be released. Forbes listed Crichton in tenth place in its list of "Top-Earning Dead Celebrities" of 2009.
Given the private way in which Crichton lived his life, his battle with throat cancer was not made public until his death. According to Crichton's brother Douglas, Michael was diagnosed with lymphoma in early 2008. He was undergoing chemotherapy treatment at the time of his death. Crichton's physicians and family members had been expecting him to make a recovery. He unexpectedly died of the disease on November 4, 2008. "Michael’s talent outscaled even his own dinosaurs of 'Jurassic Park.' He was the greatest at blending science with big theatrical concepts, which is what gave credibility to dinosaurs again walking the earth. In the early days, Michael had just sold 'The Andromeda Strain' to Robert Wise at Universal and I had recently signed on as a contract TV director there. My first assignment was to show Michael Crichton around the Universal lot. We became friends and professionally 'Jurassic Park,' 'ER,' and 'Twister' followed. Michael was a gentle soul who reserved his flamboyant side for his novels. There is no one in the wings that will ever take his place." —Steven Spielberg on Michael Crichton's death.

Hi Great thread however I have a suggestion. If timelines are changing then i asume that all content that was once associated with that will also change such as web pages, links etc. Might i suggest that a screen grab (or several) are taken of the website where the article was posted and uploaded as images to further support the story. If there indeed are changes to the webpage story hopefully the screengrab will have the 'original' content intact so that one can compare.
Just a thought. Great threat i will keep an eye on this one.

Hmmm thanks for the responses. Ok so some think even grabbing a ss of the web where story was printed may disappear. Would the fact we wrote it here disappear here as well? I mean I will start taking ss when they happen just in case as I hope other folks do as well.
I mean I hate to be down the road going I know I started a thread about this and that person was on it as one listed, to not find this as well. That would be bizarre...
