Ridiculous... I distinctly recall Ernest Borgnine having died more than 6 months ago... I remember thinking 'Cabbie's dead :/'

But I mean this is the first topic to ever draw me to ATS years ago back in 2005.
I first had this experience when I was 12. I had bought my favorite magazine, "Guitar World" on my lunch hour from school one day. I remember clear as day reading the final page, the usual "Tribute to a dead rocker" page. It was a tribute to the life and death of "Mark Knopfler" from the band "Dire Straits".
I wasn't a big fan (at the time) but I remembered him for his "Money For Nothing" video on MTV. Well years passed and it was 2005, sitting in my room, and I came across a recent video of Mark Knopfler on youtube, alive! I couldn't believe it!
I remember searching through back issues made available online from that year and nowhere in those issues was there ever a tribute to the life and death of Mark. I was dumbfounded. I felt like there was something wrong with this. It didn't sit right because my memory is like a sponge. I remember reading it.
Well that led me to searching google for terms like, "mark knopfler dead but now alive" and eventually it led me to ATS. I felt like I had hit the jackpot on this subject. Although there's not many who do remember Knopfler dying, there were many on here that had lists of other peoples who even I remember dying but now we're told they're alive and well.
That's the best description I've ever heard for sort of experience; Timeslip
