Again, how do you explain people who've never seen the book and say Berenstein when they are looking at the book? Or pronounce it wrong with the book in front of them?

That's obviously 'spontaneous false memory implantation'. Maybe HAARP will be blamed, even long after it's dismantled.

You have ignored my personal theory of 'implanted mistaken memories' (experimentation on the masses)

Ray you're a disinfo agent located at the NSA HQ.

Why should we trust you?

And by any chance do you have any marshmellows?

THE IRONY!!!

That reminds me of something I thought about earlier. Those that push the implanted false memory angle (as if that would validate the claims that it really was spelled stein) cast reasonable doubt on all... UFO sightings for example.

I guess I need to add that to the was it real or was it a dream possibilities for what I saw.

That's universe "e" stuff? What happened to Jacy that grew up in universe "a"?


I would assume she is in universe "e" typing on a thread on ETS about why the heck it's spelled BerenstEin, lol...
Oh, and you're over there assuring her it always has been.

Thats a pronounciation on the spot. Not a memory from the past.

Go ahead and make jokes but my post there was actually a serious question about how this switcheroo stuff could work.

ETA: Very few posts have actually been about that aspect of the thread. People are still trying to justify claims that books in this universe "a" actually had stein printed on them.

Wow.. this topic just tweaked my mind quite a bit. Prior to reading this thread, I would have bet good money on the fact that it was BerentEin NOT BerenstAin. I had a few of those books growing up and I actually distinctly remember having a debate with a friend way back when on how it was spelled.. whether it was 'stein' or 'stien' and my friend using the whole "I before E.." argument. It being spelled 'stAin' never even entered into the equation at the time.

If they misspell and/or mispronounce the name WHILE LOOKING AT THE BOOK will time correct their memory?

Except after c. I think it still applies in this universe.


Have to admit though, i before e except after c is a weird rule.


...I know, right? And then there's even another tricky part. Here's the whole rhyme I learned in elementary school:

I before E
except after C
or when sounding like A
as in "neighbor" and "weigh"

Geez, there's that "a" cropping up again complicating the balance of the universe!

I am actually floored that it is spelled marshMALLOW...I've never purchased them in my life...but I ate them as a kid, so until today I would have spelled it marshMELLOW as that is how it was pronounced growing up...I still pronounce it that way.

Oh, well that does sound a lot better. I was just thinking that a world without a man that promoted peace such as Mr. Mandela, and that would have violently squished a man would be worse off, in the long run. Hearing that, though, makes me slightly sad.
ETA: 'I before E

Out of curiosity, Steiners and Stainers alike, how did you pronounce it? I pronounced stein as 'steen' even though its 'Styne' but it shouldn't it phonetically sound like stain anyway? Such as the aforementioned 'neighbor' and 'weigh'? Maybe that has something to do with this all? Or, maybe it doesn't. What say you all?
ETA, Again: to answer your question, upon googling 'Andrew Zimmerman' and 'Andrew Zimmern', the same guy shows up. I assumed, that because I also remember it being zimmerman, that he changed his name between when I last heard of him and now, and took your listing of that to be a joke, to lighten up your post.

Sweet. But how does that explain "weird". That's why I called it "weird". Get it? I'm having some of that daja vu here.

Anyway, I gotta go cuz Stan and Kyle are here and on Friday night we always go harsh Randy Marsh's mellow. You won't get that I guess unless you watched South Perk.

Hmm... point taken (even tho you weren't talking to me.) But your post made this idea pop into my head: Subliminal advertising. Well, not 'advertising' but something subliminal. Something that makes you think one spelling, until you really, REALLY focus on it.

But that only leads to the obvious question... Why? What would be the point.

On the contrary...

of 22 native English speakers who were polled in my office today, every single one of them said BerenSTEIN (pronounced STYNE) when looking directly at the cover. When I took the book away and asked them to spell it they spelled it STEIN. They had JUST seen the book.

Of those 22, 7 had never ever ever read or seen the book prior to me showing it to them. What kind of sheltered childhood they had is beyond me, but that is a 100% failure rate when looking directly at the book...Only non native English speakers got it right, and even then not all of them. Only 3 of 5 from that group got it right. The three who got it right were all Indian. One of the wrong was Ukrainian, the other was Dutch.

In case you can't figure this one out, chances are close to 100% of people who look at the book for the first time, especially those with a Latin alphabet, did the same exact thing, even 30, 40 or 50 years ago.

Sorry, DenyO. Erase the laughy face, and really there's your answer still. Universe 'e' Jacy is here, so universe 'a' Jacy is undoubtedly in over in universe 'e' suffering confusion. (Unless she is in universe 'o' or 'u'
