OMG this is beautiful. We have officially broken the world somehow.
I cannot even comprehend that this is or has happened. Please someone chime in here in my defense and back me up that "we" who remember "Stain" have been made fun of and the butt of all Mandela Effect jokes on ATS for the last 7 years.
I can't even do this.

How have you missed the countless other threads on this?
Oh well! It was always 'stain'. Though you can find the occasional book or VHS tape where someone spelled it 'Stein' by mistake.

until just recently (the ATS threads changed my mind) i thought it was spelled 'stein'.
The Mandela Effect is faulty memory, pure and simple. I have seen nothing to suggest otherwise.
(And, as an aside, are the people who remember Mandela dying, Berenstein Bears, NZ being further north, etc, all the same - do they all remember the same differences? Or are they separate groups?)

Yes, it's just proof of how easy it is to mix this up.
Same thing with the NYT archive. You will get a few hits for 'Berenstein,' but there are far, far more with the correct spelling, 'Berenstain.'
