    Default The Mandela Effect: Are you from an alternate reality?

    My mum made a very good point. Berenstain is their surname but traditionally Betenstein is a surname with a German or Jewish origin.

    It has just been "Americanised" with the A as that's how Americans pronounce it! Similar to how Reagan as in Ronald is actually meant to be Regan, an Irish name, but the spelling changed when the family originally immigrated to America.

    So we all think it's Berenstein as this is how our parents would have pronounced it and probably why we remember it like that!

    PROBLEM SOLVED!!! 😜

    See the Berenstain thing.
    When reading the name, my eyes don't run all the way to the end of the word.
    They lock on the Beren and take the rest for granted, which would be stein not stain.
    Maybe that's how others are reading it too?

    On the Mandela effect page, there is a comment from a man claiming to be Stan and Jan's son. I'll find and quote...

    Actually it was on the "woods between worlds" page, which my fat finger clicked on without me noticing.
    Interesting nonetheless.

    True! It is said that if a word keeps the first and last letter but jumbles up the rest of the letters we can still read it. I remember seeing an email with an entire sentence on it and it was so true!

    His website example is a bit of a crock though. Just filled with mistakes.
