The Berenstein Bears reveal a glitch in the Matrix.

This story has been around for a while already, but I only learnt of it a few days ago. Not sure whether or not it's been discussed here already. "Berenstein Bears" didn't return any results in the RatSkep search function... probably because you're all in on the conspiracy, you bastards.
:coffee:

The Berenstain Bears first appeared in a 1962 children's book, taking their name from the authors...

The characters have endured to the present, with the series growing to over 300 titles.
But there are many who swear that they remember the characters from their childhood days as The Berenstein Bears, not the Berenstain Bears... despite the fact that there exist no copies of 'Berenstein' books, no record that they were ever named as such, no photographs of anyone holding a 'Berenstein' book, etc.

Possible explanations...

* Those who claim to remember them as the 'Berenstein Bears' have simply always misread the title.
* Some of us hail from an intersecting parallel universe in which the characters and their creators really are the Berensteins.
* A temporal traveler interfered with the timeline, changing 'Berenstein' to 'Berenstain'.
* There's been a glitch in the accursed matrix in which we're all trapped.

I actually got chills down my spine.

I'd never heard of the berenstain bears until a few years ago someone posted about this on this forum, very much on these lines - pointing out that there were people who remembered them from childhood as "berenstain bears" but showing clips proving they were now known as the "berenstein bears". Obviously I laughed it off.

But now here you are making the same argument in reverse, and I can find no evidence that conversation ever took place. Meaning I've moved from one reality where the berenstain bears reveal a glitch in the matrix to an entirely different reality where it's proved by the berenstein bears instead*.

WTF.

*Well, either that or I'm misremembering**.
**Or lying.

They were always Berenstain Bears to my recollection. Clearly someone has tampered with my memory.

And the Bond villain JAWS in Moonraker, his girlfriend never had braces. I think this was discussed at length in the forum a couple of years back.

I have a VERY clear memory of that being the magic moment when Jaws and her met, when she smiled at him and they both had metal teeth.

We must have just popped back to our universe then. This is exactly as I remember it, and let's face it, it's artistically right:




If you don't see braces we must have shifted back after I posted.
