About relating NDE to the -stein phenomena.
I've never died in my dreams.
I'd always either wake up just before, or change the dream to a better outcome.
I've also never had any near death experiences.
I've a couple that were close calls, but nothing where I needed medical treatment.
1.At age 6 I almost drowned in a lake, dad pulled me out of the water in time though. I was fine.
2. At 14 when very sleepy in the morning and shopping for groceries with mum, I nearly stepped in front of a bus, but mom pulled me back by my shirt collar just in time.
I'd say these 2 were close calls, that's all.

It looks like we steiners are just spelling it wrong. That's how it looks, I know.



If someone could find a child's project with the E spelling, I would be very interested. The reason I say this is, I work with children and know that a word like Berenstein would be copied from the book itself (or another object). No average Pre-7 year old would attempt a word like that without help. So that would mean they got it from somewhere, right?

If all the shirts,mugs, posters, books, coasters, games , and taken photographs have been changed, then drawings would have changed too.

Kinda my point though really, (I think). Sometimes I type my thoughts out loud.


If we still have children's drawing with E from a school project, then perhaps there is a "bad" batch out there floating around. I know we can't find them on eBay, but maybe they were passed out to the schools?

ETA - I am really trying to think about plausible theories instead of myself jumping timelines. If I'm gonna be a slider, I wanna be able to control it dang it!

Really? If a certain pic is considered to be genuine, you have two books each displaying both spellings.

Did the changers just get sloppy?

Yes, I understand what you mean .
Good luck with your search.
I've been trying to find a bad batch of books/games/poster with -ein on them but no results.

Perhaps like you suggested we should try looking for drawings. It makes sense to me.

Survey updates: 18 steins, 2 stains, 2 can't spell.

What would be really great is if somebody went through their old early school stuff (which I doubt most adults still have) and finds a journal entry, class assignment or something along those lines about the books.

Information sent to publishers in December 15 1951, teletext. Change from Berenstein to Berenstain accomplished.

Case study; proof that small changes can be accomplished in the past without creating an alternative timeline, validated and confirmed June 23, 2014.

Residual memory fragments of original Berenstein retained in approximately 73% of avid followers of subject materials. Confusion and rationalization are leading to logical explanations, some information stored digitally has failed to adapt completely to the change. Open attached PDF files for complete report.

This post is a complete work of fiction. Nothing above is true, and may only reflect a possible theory.

what is there to it?


Don't know yet maybe nothing. Maybe a diabolical evil plot by some James bondish villain. Relax and have fun with it.

Just popping back in with an update on my search...

I decided to google "Jan and Stan Berenstein" (although google search wants to correct me to 'stain', I persisted). I decided to NOT go with the first few pages listed, but to go deeper...pages 10, 11, 12, etc.

I'm amazed with how many teacher blogs, writer blogs, school recommended reading material (pdf files), etc. that I'm finding, all with the stein spelling.
I mean, these are teachers....writers....people who are not careless with their spelling (and editing).

I still cannot find a picture of a book without the 'stain' spelling.
Strangely, a friend just text me and asked for a ride to the local second hand book shop....? Yeppir, for sure!
I will be searching for books and grilling the book store owner, lol.

Will report back later.

I am not sure if you are being sarcastic, but you are actually right. Children do indeed tend to incorrectly perceive the spelling of names depending on how they were educated. STEIN makes more sense, so children would remember it as STEIN instead of STAIN. I was old enough to read it to my little brother, and it was definitely STAIN well before 1992.

Yes, my theory is it has always been stain, and everyone who thinks it wasn't was a small child when they read the books or had them read to them. For example, I read these books to my little brother. I KNOW it was STAIN, I even still have the books. He however, he is convinced it was STEIN (he is 34)...I am the one who read the books to him though, and it was STAIN.

If they weren't a small child, their memory is playing tricks on them since it is SUPPOSED to be spelled BerenSTEIN, however, according to the Berenstain Family, there was a typo during immigration and it has been spelled BerenSTAIN ever since. So all of us who know how to spell KNOW it should be spelled Berenstein, so our memory corrects it for us. However, it was spelled BerenSTAIN. My books are from the 60's/70's and they say STAIN.

And dismissive questions? For real?

I doubt you have found a PICTURE of the spelling STEIN on the books. I still have my books, they have a copyright from 1963 and they say STAIN. This thread reminded me I have the books, so I am reading them to my sons now.

Edit, I also found a newer book with a copyright from 2005. So my old books are original prints probably as my sisters were born in the late 60's and early 70's and that is when my mom got them.

Type Berenstain into MS Word. It corrects it to Berenstein...that is probably why there are so many typo's on the internet.

That is an auto correct problem. Auto correct fixes Bernstain to Bernstein.

agreed.

how did you pronounce it? that probably had an influence on why he believes it was spelled Stein.
