Nelson Mandela is NOT dead.

He is in very serious condition and on life support. Odds are very high he will pass in the near future assuming his condition does not improve.

But, I repeat, he is still alive. Excuse me while I go have a drink to offset almost having a heart attack.

3. SABC in South Africa had nothing new...

That report earlier on the home page from a "well known source" was erroneous.

4. I originally posted that Mandela was dead. I rechecked my sources and took it down less than 10

 

minutes after it went up.

Forgive me for almost giving you an heart attack. Mandela has a lot of respect from me.

I really apologize for this.

5. I hope he passes peacefully soon

 

My grandmother lingered on life support after a massive stroke. Sometimes human intervention isn't a good thing.

8. That's quite literally the only source saying so on the internet.

They also spelled Nobel incorrectly. Looks like a bullshit article to me.

11. There will be years enough to mourn him after he's gone. Until then, I will

celebrate every moment of his exceptional life.

13. What's with the multiple Mandela death hoaxes...

 

We had another twitter hoax earlier this month too.

This was weird in that someone officially speaking at our local PCP meeting on Wednesday night announced to everyone attending that he had died then based on this latest false rumor. When I heard the next day that he was "recovering" I was rolling my eyes back heavily. Seems rather weird.
