This, if true, is the single most freaky occurrence ever -- with world-shattering implications.
I didn't grow up here so I never encountered this children's books series, but apparently some folks who did, and who are of its generation, remember the Berenstein bears in their childhood. However, all of a sudden every single copy, new or old, bears the name Berenstain bears. The physical printed letters on every single one now say Berenstain, but thousands of people swear the SAME books, which some still own from back in their childhood, spelled Berenstein when they read them as kids. Some of these people were, as kids, voracious readers and meticulous, aware spellers, and they assert there's no way they would fail to notice or remember how it was spelled. Some have the last name Berenstein themselves, or Stein or Steiner or even Einstein, and they say there's no way they could have forgotten their own name or not noticed it in the name of the book. And there's literally a whole generation that either collectively experienced a glitch in the memory -- the same glitch in thousands of people -- which would be weird enough --
the "or" is weirder.
Or they changed something in the matrix,
and in the process introduced a typo
Do any of you bums remember those bears from a previous timeline, before the switch?.. (Me, I don't know about the bears, but at least one switch I noticed full blast when it occurred...)
