Has anyone ever heard of this? My wife actually believes this. It all started with The Berenstein Bears, or should I say The Berenstain Bears. I have to admit some of the stuff I remember being different. Does anyone else?
Interesting, but could be a common misconception due to the many "e's" in the name before the "stain" causing people to think stein and not stain from childhood memories. Also, the name was in cursive which could cause people to misread it too. There are many cases where people remember something different from what it was just because of the natural passage of time. Though, before seeing this, if you were to have me pick between two names, I would have picked "stein".
This stuff is strange I must admit. Ever since I came across this stuff it really makes me think. Prime example today coming back from lunch I looked over at this gas station which I have pulled in a few times and here is this big landscaped display with trees and rocks that I have never noticed before. I thought to my self "did they just add this"? But the trees are to mature and large for that. It's like it's appeared out of nowhere.
