This is one of the things that intrigues me as well.
Say... something in our timeline gets changed. Oh.. I don't know, you can let your imagination do the work here. Quite a few possible scenarios can occur.
For example, let's just say someone invents a time machine in the distant future. They used this technology to travel into the past. They accidentally changed something that they are not supposed to, therefore altering the entire course of human history.
Say, the time machine is invented in 2013, someone travels to 1776 during the war era, changed something by accident. Let's just forget about the finer details, like why or what caused the change, let's just say it's all accidental.
Something gets changed, then human history got altered. My question would be, what happens to the rest of us that is currently residing in this 2013 timeline?
Will our reality still be here? Or if someone changed something back in 1776, then subsequently all events shifted, therefore the entire population, including you and me, will just shift into the new reality, without noticing any changes?
For example, let's just say Lady Gaga died in 2013 in our reality, in our timeline. Then all of sudden, due to the time machine effects, accidental changes made in the past, Lady Gaga now lives and does not die like she was supposed to.
So, for all of the population that currently experienced this 2013 time line, where Lady Gaga died... what happens to us? Does all of our memory gets wiped and everyone remembers Lady Gaga is now alive?
Hard to put this in words... but hopefully someone get what I'm saying...

Where did you find the article about Doug Dougerson getting shot 17 times in the head? Nothing is showing up in my search. It's as if he doesn't exist anymore lol. This is a very interesting topic. I love reading information about time travel, time manipulation, and all that jazz.
Another thing that bothers me is why are we experiencing small changes in time shifts? Why doesn't someone in a parallel universe realize that technology is 10 years advanced, or no one ever landed on the moon? I suppose it takes something big to change time like that.
