what does /b/ think of this? my mind is pretty fucked right now. pic unrelated.
this is retarded. Up until the very end of the video I was giving credit to the guy, and then he started talking about hollow earth and missunderstanding a scientific article talking about geology...
There may have just been a misprint in some books. If you go on the U.S. ebay and search for 'berenstain books' and 'berenstein books', you will see a massive difference in results (i.e. a small percentage remember it this way). If you look at the pictures in the results for berenstein books, they all spell the name correctly (berenstain), with an incorrect title.
How this leads to a theory of an alternate universe and a hollow earth is quite remarkable.
Its bearentain. I saw this theory and asked my mom how to spell it and she spelt it bearenstain. She clearly remembers it being that. She didnt know about the theroy before i asked her, so she didn't know there were any options, she just automatically knew how to spell it. You can delete thread now mods.
No offense, but you're all a bunch of goddamned morons, the guy in the video included. It's always been Berenstain but our minds remember it as the much more common Berenstein. As children most of us also pronounced it the more common sounding, more pleasant sounding "Berenstein". That's it. End of mystery. And all of you who swear up and down that it used to be different, welcome to how the brain works and how it can deceive us. Here's one of many straightforward examples of out brains fucking with us. Our brain can do this with something we're staring right at. Just imagine what it can do with something as dubious as our memories.
There hidden sone place don't feel like diging for it but somthing just occurred to me what if we are living in two diffrent world but we some how share the internet think about it when ever somthing happens like 9/11, this, and jfk assassination theres always ppl who believe in the conspiracys but what if those ppl are in the parelle universe and the conspiracies actually happened for them and when we give our side it sounds like a conspiracy OR what if some one altered something in time burt it didnt effect the internet or like I said some bearsteins; gate shit happenefd
It was stein.
I fucking had almost every book... to top it off it was my favorite series of books from my childhood along with Stellaluna and Seven Blind Mice....
and what do you know that they're all gone now...
I'm tripping straight the fuck out right now.
This makes sense. An adult would have actually looked at the word, children would just assume the title had an "e". Why else did we spell things incorrectly til it was corrected? Was "Berenstain" ever on your Spelling Quiz?
The name was changed to BerenStain, and it use to be BerenStein...
It's because the writer is jewish, and wanted to stray away from the Jewish origin of the name of the bears...
The publishers just changed it
I distinctively remember sitting in library class in 95-96 and looking at that book and realizing it was berenSTAIN. I asked my library teacher about it and she staid "stain" was pronounced "stein" in the case of the Bears last name.
Mystery solved. Everyone go home.
I'm pretty sure everyone is just wrong. I've never even fucking heard of these books but it would have been *stain*. If this was truly a thing a lot more people would have noticed. Stop looking too deep into it. I fucking hate conspiracy theories. So many flaws in them all the time.
I genuinely can't tell if this thread is full of trolls or people are actually serious.
If the latter is true then I'm seriously scared for humanity at this point.

I just fucking googled YUTUBE and got this. I'm scared.
My guess is that the guy that uploaded this video shared his insane perspective with an equally insane group of conspiracist retards and then they sent it on to more mouthbreathers.
I guess they're all in good company.
Dude, that was dated back in 2009. I typed in YUTUBE. Something completely irrelevant to what I typed popped up. Even searching youtube by the old name reveals everything has been changed. Where the fuck did that video come from? On that search? Just how?
guys remember when runescape was roonthkape?
or was that just the lisp i had as a child
omg im so scared
There's only ONE logical conclusion - there's a black hole that exists within your post on 4chan and you know how black holes are quite spinny and stuff? And they also pull real hard? Well it's just fucking obvious that the pull combined with the spin has mutated the 'a', pulled it into 1 long string and spun it into the shape of an e!!
Can't you see guys? THIS HAS TO BE TRUE.
>people get shit wrong all the time
>beam me up scotty and luke I am your father never happened
>bob marley didn't do don't worry be happy

Fuck, are people so lonely that they are willing to cry about completely stupid topics.
>What is autism
I'M NOT AMERICAN I DON'T KNOW ABOUT BERENSTEIN AND I DON'T KNOW ABOUT ZIMMERMAN I WISH I KNEW WHAT'S GOING ON I FEEL I'M MISSING OUT ON SOME REALLY COOL SHIT DUDES
laughing so hard right now.
i love retards like that.
once had a bet going on w/ my 6 years older brother (im 22). we practically grew up with star wars. he was 100 % sure 'luke, i am your father' happened. got many people to back him up.
had to eatch the movie to prove him wrong.
beer tastes best with the confused tears of a grown up man, i tell you.
THEY'VE CHANGED THE NAME AT SOME POINT, WHY IS THAT HARD TO UNDERSTAND?
-HERE IS THE REASON-
just thought of it. The reason we all remember bernstein is probably because we did not read these books ourselves- we had them read TO us by our parents who pronounced it that way. Think about the type of book- exactly what you read to a small child.
Studies also show that you only need the first and last letter of a word to get 90% of the meaning.
i wlil wlak to the prak
easy to ignore one letter, especially when it is written in that script. Honestly- i think most of this is just us remembering the word being read to us rather than reading it ourselves.
I think this video is shitty and it's always been Berenstain.
The thing is, when you're a kid you don't really pay attention to words and sound them out properly. You listen to how other people say them and assume they're spelled that way.
This is why some people say "cousint" or spell "skelekton." Even if they've read the word spelled properly before, they don't pay attention to it closely enough to re-program their brains to spell it correctly.
tl;dr You thought your parents were saying "-stein" but they were really saying "-stain."
beren is dutch for bear so it wouldnt be stain, i blame the jews
It could just be a misprint. Like a 100 books got out with the name wrong spelling. Shit like that happens from time to time. Doesn't mean we're living in a parallel universe.
I'm sorry but this is inadmissible assuming that this person asked his mom verbally, "Mom, how do you spell berenstain?". Stain is well.. spelled STAIN, now if he actually verbally said, "Mom, how do you spell berenstein?", then that too would be inadmissible but do you see what I'm getting at? Ask your mom how would you spell breed, after just looking and thinking about how to actually spell the word bread.
My mom took me to the library so that I could look up Berenstein and Batman books. I read these books to myself, only twice was a Berestein book read to me, once by mom's abusive bf, which reminds me next time I see him I will confirm this chaos shit.. and once by mom, which is on a vacation at the beach so can't be bothered to disturb.
WHAT THE FUCK, EXPLAIN THIS BULLSHIT!
>go on google looking for Berenstein
>not one picture with an E spelling
>tried to treat Cryptography as a weapon
>tried to treat Cryptography as exclusive right of America
That's funny, cause Cryptography has existed for hundreds if not thousands of years, it's like trying to patent oxygen. "You can't breathe without paying me money!"

And this thread in a nutshell is why we have creationists and why religion even exists....
you fucktards are probably the same assholes that call religionists retards when you're even worse
Unless you know 5000 other berenstein stien stains in jew york or something.
People in the rest of the world have only been exposed to this name from the books.
Children would also read it as 'stain' and have a visual image of a stain - since they are closer connected to words.
You know, I was expecting a shoop or something where it has an E instead of an A. 4chan shoops fucking everything else...
>books are about self-insert bear characters
I hate when people write themselves as characters, they're always exaggeratedly good.
>post after fucking post after fucking post of Affirmation Bias and "memories" of things that never happened
This person is a paranoid delusionist, going to bed thinking something and waking up believing it. A large portion of the population is like that. These people "remember" things that didn't happen, and always have a beef with pretty much everyone over some imagined slight that never actually took place.
This is why there are so many people in the world who hate each other, and get all upset over stupid shit. You say hi to them, and in their mind, you didn't say hi, you said something more like "go die" and now fuck you, you are dead to me.
My suggestion is don't read this blog, don't comment on this blog, don't link this blog, and don't talk to anyone associated with this blog.
I know a lot of retards that believe this too.
You're taught in school that the US acquired Hawaii and Alaska sometime further into America's history so you add +2 on to the original 50 you were always taught

I think it's just a case of a difficult name, especially for kids to learn/read/remember.
Could be the way our language center in brain works with all them 'bear' -like words and letter E's.
comment from wiki talk:
>"Actually, throughout my childhood, it was always "Berenstein" Bears. At some point in the mid 90's, it looks like they changed it to "Berenstain" with an A. I found some old books with the original spelling, so I know I'm not crazy. "
Still 50. The District of Columbia is not a state, nor is it part of any state of the United States. Part of the constitution states that Washington, DC may not be part of a state and the reason for this is to that it is always impartial and neutral on matters concerning actual states.
For me it was teachers in school. I never owned any Berenstain bears books, and everyone always said Berenstein. I grew up before the cartoons came out, so the teacher read the books aloud to us, but we never watched the show.
I would have never watched the cartoon, because of how fucking boring the concept of the Berenstain bears is.
I remember it being spelled berenstein. Whats funny is a few years ago, I asked my gf if she ever read the berenstein bears, so I looked it up and showed her onine, I was surprised it was spelled bernstain...It doesn't even sound the same. My 2 other brothers also remember it berenstein - we had all the books.
when and why did it change?
Yeah... THAT'S the reason.
It totally has nothing to do with the DoD simply not wanting to publicize the complete circumstances of the attack due to national security.
And it 100% for certain doesn't have anything to do with "truthers" just filling in the gaps with their imagination, adding more and more unwarranted delusion and drama.
Because that would be absurd.
Your brain does not read each individual letter when it reads a word. Your brain (and other peoples brains) have simply jumped over the word without paying attention to each individual letter and has remembered it as STEIN instead of STAIN.
That is all there is to it. Believing that this gives credence to the idea of an alternate universe etc. is beyond retarded.
Uh. No he's not. He was fucking spelling it wrong.

it's simply a psychology trick to make you think you remembered it as 'stein' but in reality it has always been 'stain'.
