>tfw you realize you woke up in an alternate dimension sometime in the past month
Its strange, I knew we are in the shit when I read that random blog post talking about how conservative "american pie" fucking is compared to shit coming out these days, and that movie isn't fucking old.
For the uninformed:
Remember the Berenstein Bears? That childhood book series from your youth?
Look long and hard at how Berenstein is spelled. Looks proper, doesn't it? You're sure it's spelled that way? Of course you are. We all are.
Google "Berenstein" and see what has happened to what you're so sure is the proper spelling.
Some things it said that made me go "wow" was something akin to, "It's the story of four seniors trying to lose their virginity. If a senior is a virgin today, I half expect them to start talking about Jesus."
Pointed out the entire cast was white, the last time that would ever be allowed (except for the one overtly Jewish actor when they didn't try to hide the fact that there were jews in hollywood)
That the foreign exotic girl was riske because she "shaved" her pubic region and this was considered scandalous as fuck. These days it's strange for a girl to not shave.
Shit like that.
But, it WAS Berenstein.
I know it was.
I just asked my brother, he's positive it was Berenstein too.
>It's the story of four seniors trying to lose their virginity. If a senior is a virgin today, I half expect them to start talking about Jesus
So what does that mean in terms of why it's a big upset?
Are we all just collectively being a bit baffled by it, or is there some nefarious Jewish plot to warp the minds of kids by changing the names of the bears?
Nope, I distinctly remember wtfing about this as a kid.
It turns out people were just pronouncing it wrong.
It was -stine, not -steen. The latter rolls off the tongue quicker because it requires less emphasis, leading to its popularity.
So, I was thinking about the reason why nearly everyone in the industry is rushing to defend Zoe
They realize that if enough word gets out, and they come under even more scrutiny, they'll all be revealed as the scumsucking, corrupt blowhards they are
You know the rumor that to be a president, you have to be a Freemason, or Skull and Bones? And that you have to participate in bizarre rituals?
To be a game journalist, you have to subscribe to the cult of social justice
They know that if we win, they'll be ruined
our consciousnesses merged over to our alternate timeline incarnations
maybe out of frustration.
maybe because of that near death experience that you can't really explain surviving.
here it was always berenstain, because at Ellis Island the frustrated immigration officer anglicized it that way instead of 'stein'
here the SJWs can be defeated
here we can win
im so glad i visit /x/, and i too remember stein.
>tfw timestreams are merging because we really are getting close to THE happening
i wonder what else is changing/changed
don't be scared!
IN THIS TIMELINE, WE CAN WIN
also dog captcha why
Nope, I wasn't raised with that shit, the first time I saw it as a kid was from the books. It was always "The Berenstain Bears".
When I heard people pronouncing it -steen, I just chalked it up the English language being weird.
You're all just naturally associating the spoken -steen with the written -stein.
This is why people are so afraid, they aren't anchored within themselves.
Where you are at, it's where you are at. Stop thinking so much in terms of "there" or "here". You will feel better.
Apparently the movie "Interview With A Vampire" is now "Interview with The Vampire"
I distinctly remember it was "A" not "The"
We're getting Berenstein'd hard
all the physical books will be 'stain'
all the search results will be 'stain'
in this timeline, they were ALWAYS 'stain'
in this timeline, 'stein' exists only as our memory from the old timeline we came from, somehow.
in this timeline, the SJW's unstoppable advance is just a memory that we brought with us
in this timeline we stop them.
in this timeline we WIN.
every person who confirms that they remember it as berenstein is another person confirming that we are in a different timeline where we triumph against evil instead of watching it succeed
this feel, is the universe beginning to right itself?
Went to look, couldn't find em, remembering now I gave the vast majority of the set to my cousin a few years back and put the few leftovers in the attic.
I'll get them tomorrow and call my cousin.
If something like that can be changed so fucking thoroughly even though everyone that has seen the books more than several years ago remembers otherwise....
Either there exists a way to change details in this reality or we all underwent some massive hypnosis experiment
everyone who remembers 'berenstein' also has either an inexplainable near death experience that they somehow survived (usually with a small time skip) or they laid awake at night being angry at the direction the world was taken.
and now you're here, and it's bearenstain and interview with THE vampire, and a few other minor differences but overall you were still born to the same parents in the same place, but this time.. this time the SJWs get KTFO.
this time 4chan, reddit, and tumblr are all on the same page.
>things that would not have happened in the world you remember
reminder most people under twenty only know it as stain
Oh shit, I have a theory.
Remember how everything went to hell in 2007? That was seven years ago.
Maybe every seven (in-simulation) years, a new person is appointed to control the simulation. And the person who just finished their term decided to go out with a bang and fuck shit up. But once the new person took the wheel, they set to fixing everything the last person did, which is why things are finally starting to look up.
>scoop around the internet for some kind of photographic proof that the books used to be -stein
>find a forum thread with someone posting a hotlink to an image hosting site claiming that the linked image was of the -stein cover
>people in the thread are responding as if the photo is legit
THIS ONLY MAKES THINGS WORSE
That makes sense. I'm 22 and I was starting to think I'm too high for this thread, because I SPECIFICALLY remember it being "The BerenSTEIN Bears", and it being "Interview with A Vampire".
the goddamn first edition book title has even been changed
no, i brought this to /x/ months ago.
they couldn't handle it.
even i didnt understand what it really meant.
but now, now it's all clear.
this is the timeline where things go differently.
this is the timeline where we win.
I've notice other things change. I need to make a comprehensive list. My life has seen more bad luck and drama recently, still I'm pretty sure this jump or edit in simulation or whatever happened is probably more pleasant.
>walked away from an IED attack
>outswam an alligator after my kayak tipped in a Carolina swamp
>had a rock come flying through my car window and somehow I matrixed my head out of the way
>had a rather large shark knock me off my surf board
>got attacked, but somehow escaped unharmed, my a large pack of wild dogs
Come on man I just finally got over that existential crisis... I'm not like the sixth sense... R-right?
>OP was not being a faggot. It is spelled "Berenstain"
>my fucking face when
I ... WHAT... NO... I SWORE IT WAS SPELLED "Barenstein" or atleast with a "stein" in it.
I literally felt I entered a different dimension. HOLY SHIT! I WANT TO KILL MYSELF!
How do you know this is the one where we win?
also, wtf captcha
you can! i can't say if you will or not, that's up to you. but you CAN! this is where you were meant to be!
you and your sister are both needed here then.
this is the one where we win because we were just barely losing in the one we remember.. and in that one, the SJW mindset had infected reddit and tumblr.
but now.. now that isn't quite so.
we win here.
I've noticed that my intuition's been a lot more reliable lately.
Maybe it's just a result of life experience, but when I keep getting the feeling that something's going to happen without any logical reason to believe so, and when it keeps turning out that those things actually do happen, I think something's up here.
The idea is that our minds and consciousnesses used to be in the Berenstein universe and now are in the Berenstain universe, possibly as a result of quantum immortality merging us with this reality after our old one was destroyed.
nope. fucked timeline = the one where the SJWs could not be stopped, like zerg.
instead, here we can and will win.
Nope! you just merged over into yourself here, because the two of you were essentially the same consciousness anyway.
if you want to get into chi bullshit you probably have extra chi now or something but the only 2spoopy stuff i will firmly believe is that my consciousness merged universes.
some people get here via near death experiences (usually while very young or teens)
some people just were angry enough to wake up in a world where they were not fated to lose against the sjwzerg
you ever listen to an album you love after a while and hear parts of songs that you swear you'd never heard before? like a bridge that didn't exist before or an extra chorus when you thought for sure the song was supposed to end? it happens to me sometimes.
I SWORE IT WAS "Barenstein" Because they are Jews. I HAVE SEEN IT NUMEROUS TIMES! THIS CAN'T BE HAPPENING!
HOLY FUCK I FINALLY REMEMBERED A REALITY GLITCH I RECENTLY HAD
Tony Shaloub MONK died of a heart attack
It was in the fucking news
Then like a week or 2 later suddenly he's alive again and I couldn't find shit on his death, but I swear I saw it on the tv
>yfw the happening happened and we all died
>collectively our spirits combined
>maybe we were all in the same army and died all at once in a nuclear bomb
>our spirits wandering a world of memories
>finally we begin to realise our own deaths
>we begin to form a consciousness
>it is manifested as /pol/, an imageboard, something small enough not to send us insane with the realisation
>all of us addicted to the idea of the happening
>all of us want it to happen
>we want it to happen because then we'll realise we're all dead
>finally our souls will be at peace
I don't know what you guys are talking about... someone's rusing you.
>it's not happening
>full blown race war in Missouri
>Israel still ethnically cleansing Gaza
>ISIS is spreading like ebola
>ebola is still raping African shitholes, MSM just stopped putting emphasis on it because of the other things
Jesus christ, like that fucking ash in pokemon theory when hes actually in a coma.. we're all dead and using /pol/ to come to terms with it.
if we're already dead then the happening can come faster.
>tfw your team finnaly wins the owl right before the happening
and on top of it all, we end up in a timeline where:
>we win vs sjws
im gonna dock this universe a half star on yelp for not having a supermodel girlfriend who poops vanilla icecream but overall 4.5 / 5 would recommend this universe.
>the catalyst of the universe merge was robin williams dying
>with his death his favorite laosian preschooler animated picture caused a spatial warp leading us here
we need to win the war for him
Mickey Rooney died over a decade ago, death made a memorable impact on me (self-identification).
Last year find out he was actually alive, confused but got over him being alive again.
Just wikied him, found he died this last april, didn't hear anything at the time. WTF?
wtf, post from 2012 about this exact topic.

WE EXTRADIMENSIONAL BEINGS NOW
but anon, in this universe we're all gonna make it
I'm 34, but I have a distinct memory of watching some kind of candlelight vigil on TV.... and asking my mom what it was about.
She told me Elvis had just died and it was his funeral.
no anon it's a trap, remember the opening of the gates of hell? this is and it's only the beginning
Funny I was just watching The Dead Zone last night
Themes of changing the future.
Brooke Adams starred in it.
She is married to Tony Shaloub
Reminds me of that movie where a woman's kid is kidnapped by aliums and the aliums erase everything pertaining to her kid but somehow they botched it up when it came to making HER forget.
Post yfw in the future you will remember a man called Michael brown but he never existed
Suppose we're actually an immortal interdimensional protection team whose job is to systematically ensure that every universe survives the happening? Our job was finished in our old one, now we're here?
Stein... Stain... I really don't remember which one is the original, but as some anons already pointed... "Steins;Gate" is an animu with time travel and parallel universes... It can be some sort of signal to take attention to this Stein-Stain thingy?
>the timelines merged and now the 7 eleven logo has a lowercase 'n' in it
>The timeline we're in is the better one
>I still hate myself in this timeline
never forget that right now
right FUCKING NOW
4chan, reddit and tumblr are fighting the same enemy.
would that happen in the timeline you remember?
THIS IS NOT JUST A THING THAT HAPPENED
THIS IS A THING THAT HAPPENED BECAUSE OF THOUSANDS OF SOULS THAT CAME HERE FROM THE 'STEIN' UNIVERSE.
we are here, steinbros. and we are here to win.
>aimlessly wandering /pol/
>wondering if it's nothing but shills and newfags
>wonder if anyone even remembers the happening
>see this thread
Knew you guys were still here.
But I've always remembered it as -stain not -stein
What are you niggas talking about?
oh boy we're posting our near death experiences?
>almost drown twice
>failed suicide attempt

i was struck with lightning too but most people survive that

>all of a sudden im going to make it
D-did I die and end up here?
Ok so Mandela effect.
Anyone know the name of an effect when you think about something and then you just happen to keep seeing it?
IIRC it was something about Hitler? Some people on an old usenet mentioned thinking about him and then, bam, and article or something on t.v. about him without fail.
beyond batshit insane SJW. so insane that even tumblr said "whoa what the fuck."
we will cleanse this universe.
that is why we are here, so far from home and yet so close.
>this is the timeline where things go differently.
>this is the timeline where we win.
What is this based on? What if the other timeline is the "good" one, and were in the "shit" one now?
You know how some people hate certain names for no reason? Like you meet someone named Blake and you go "Oh boy, I bet he's an asshole."
Maybe this happens because we're remembering our enemies from the happening. Maybe the guy that dropped the nuke and killed us all, maybe we hear his name and all hate it for some inexplicable reason.
We need to figure out what name we all universally hate for no reason.
maybe things didn't work out in that other timeline, but you still have important things to do, important enough that your soul, your spark, said fuck naw not done yet, and merged over to this universe.
>IIRC it was something about Hitler? Some people on an old usenet mentioned thinking about him and then, bam, and article or something on t.v. about him without fail.
i believe thats known as the "oy vey never forget, you evil goyim" effect
>snort two lines of modafinil

Fuck I can't handle this
tell me the fuck about it
>something came along where i wouldn't be able to go to college
>feel like there is no fucking point and I should just shoot myself
>a miracle happened and now I'll become my childhood dream of being a paleontologist.
what the hell man. maybe it's just coincidence but..
>THIS IS THE ONE WHERE WE WIN, GUYS
and noone wortha damn will ever really notice that we did win so did we REALLY win?
>Anyone know the name of an effect when you think about something and then you just happen to keep seeing it?
I've heard it being called the "blue car effect", e.g. you buy a blue car and suddenly see many more blue cars while driving on the road.
>Decide to read about this mandella effect bullshit
>Quantum vibrations energy alternate reality souls time travel
/x/ or even 4chan in general trying to understand science is one of the most horrifying things I have ever seen.
I am cringing like a motherfucker here.
dude thats exactly what happened to me
>"you need a B for this math test to study AI"
>try to study for it, but fail horribly
>"oh god oh god ive got a C dont i"
>get a B miraculously, now im gonna study AI next week
It isn't the Mandella Effect, it has been erroneously been titled Berenstein before. I have proof and I can actually explain this one.
The show that most /pol/acks are familiar is the 80's version replayed. Not the 2003 version. The 80's series featured a theme song where it was pronounced the way we know it. STEIN not STAIN. Since basically no one looked at the fucking title card and only listened to the theme and way it was pronounced in the show this led to a lot of confusion for the publisher. Since most the books were old by the time the show was being syndicated and it hit an upswing in popularity, they simply reprinted with the books with the alternate phonetic spelling.
Then in 2003 when they remade the series, they did the correct pronunciation and reprints with the STAIN as opposed to STEIN.
Here is proof.
Call me skeptical, but Ill see how that pans out. Interweb drama (yes I do understand the normalfag world implication of that whole drama) is one thing, but global, large scale disruptions are what will really pique my attention.
All that had to change was a stroke of the pen the Ellis Island immigration officer used to record Stan Berenstain's kike ancestor's surname.
That's how easy God can direct things.
Yes and the point? It's written with a "the", not and "a", which is wrong, and I remember that I thought that was pretty retarded back when I read the book in elementary school. Nothings changed, fagtron.
If it was the majority of Tumblr, then posts about the incident would be in the 10,000+ note range by now, and they'd all be against Zoe and the indie mafia. But a quick search on Tumblr shows that they all have maybe 300 notes at most. The SJWs and feminists are mostly silent about it for now.
Give it time and sooner or later, there's going to be the usual "this poor girl was harassed by misogynist MRAs" post circling around which breaches 50,000 notes within a couple days as it gets mindlessly reblogged by the majority of Tumblr.
I just went upstairs to ask my wife about this Berenstein thing and she wasn't there. We've been having minor arguments recently but they're nothing significant and I don't think she'd leave over something so petty. I called her mom to ask if she was there and she acted like she had never met me... not "why are you calling?" but "who the hell is this calling at 3:30 in the morning? She doesn't know a John..."
I'm a grown ass man and I'm in tears right now. I don't know if this thread is just one huge troll and if my wife is really leaving me and her mom is a fucking cunt or if something really is happening. I keep looking at the darkened stairway behind me expecting to see some kind of apparition. I don't know what to do.
What this place does is nothing more than say a bunch of bullshit that sounds all smart and sciencey and use it to justify something that sounds spooky and weird.
Everything you people say is hollow. I swear this is the kind of shit kindergarteners do.
Honestly I'm mixed on the berenstein thing but I definitely remember it being Interview with a Vampire.
I better get a smoking hot gf in this dimension.
When I was 15, some people on the boards and IRC channels I hung out on would think I was in my 40s. Which is funny, considering that I acted like a complete fucking retard back then.
That is pretty much what I think as well. No point wondering about those things as it is heavily based on speculation. The reality in front of you is something you have to deal with, so Ill use my energy dealing with that.
PROOF in the archives
Dude, every title is "The", not "A" now....
the only mentions of "a" I can find are things like critics reviews...
The book was always "the", the movie was "a", but now apparently, the movie has also always been "the"
fight on anon, this new world needs us all
lol capcha: tadvance many
not only do we get gfs in this timeline, but our incarnations had success with women to the point where they let them pass by for reasons we can't remember.
think back to women in your life, and the ones that aren't in it anymore.
why did you let them go?
could it be.. that your incarnation in this timeline wasn't needy and can get quality women when he wants, and that's why it wasn't a big deal?
anyone ever had the capcha have their name in part of the type in puzzle?
shit happened to me last night, was a little weird.
They'll say Berenstain. The creators have the last name Berenstain now too.
My nephew has a bunch of these books, pic related (I'm a retard, I put the timestamp upside down)
I used to read these to him back in 2011 when he was two, and I distinctly remember noticing the strange spelling of "Berenstain". I never thought much of it until I saw this thread and discovered the alternate universe theory.
So, we've been in this alternate universe at least as far back as 2011. I want to believe that our universe is correcting itself, but I don't know...
Uhhh sooo I just started googling random things.... To check on them...
John Bradley.. One of the flag raisers on Iwo jima... He got the medal of honor, right? RIGHT? Google it. Keep a bucket next to you, you might vomit.
Basically, yeah. If you could think of one industry that has the most failures-in-life, what one would it be? Video game journalism, naturally. We are talking about people who's degrees, or lack there of, have absolutely nothing to do with their career choice; Specialization: Agoraphobia. They know they have no backup form of income lined up if somehow video games became completely irrelevant. I would go even deeper though.
If that comes even close to happening, you could see the entire feminist movement get directed to this exact issue to defend the industry. Google, Facebook, and Twitter have too much liability invested. The momentum would turn in the complete opposite direction for anyone who's career greatly involves social media or feminism, otherwise. The directive for society that has been planned for us would be null and void.
>What this place does is nothing more than say a bunch of bullshit that sounds all smart and sciencey and use it to justify something that sounds spooky and weird.
People used to say that about people who dared suggest the earth wasn't flat.
Nobody ever said that because the Flat Earth Society was founded in the 1950's and have been doctoring history and public perception to make people THINK that people once thought the Earth was flat
I've experienced a glitch like this before. Im a huge soccer fan and watched the FIFA 2010 world cup live.
I would swear on my life that I watched spain win 3-0 before my eyes, I even vaugly remember all 3 goals, yet when I went back to watch highlights before the last world cup it said 1-0 and there was only the lone goal. Spooked me the fuck out and I checked wikipedia and everything I could, all confirmed it was 1-0.
Either Im legitimately crazy or something changed.
I was a corpsman, and john Bradley was like a legend upon legends as far as how everyone thought of him as the corpsman to strive to be... I very distinctly remember him having received the medal of honor. I may be wrong and it may have just been the navy cross...... But I feel very strongly that he did receive the medal of honor.
I remember some of my earliest dreams being in black and white, not sure why. I distinctly remember being astounded by a particularly colorful dream when I was about four years old.
I've seen the Bears shit, but not this. I wonder what other shit I'm not remembering correctly. If me misremembering it is the issue to begin with.
A few nights ago I had an unspeakably vivid and unbelievable dream. I won't bore you with what exactly happened, but multiple times in the dream, I was fully convinced I was awake. I kept waking up. It felt like days passed by the time I woke up. It was the most surreal and convincing dream I've ever had. The most insane shit you can imagine happened to me for effectively days, before I finally snapped out of it.
Now I've seen an influx in Berenstein discussions, and somehow my attitude towards the world has changed. I'm not depressed (as I was prior to the dream), I'm more social, I'm healthier, I'm more energetic, I'm a completely different person.
Now all these fellow "Berenstein"ers are waking up and I feel like there's something huge about to go down.
hold me, /pol/
>Interview with the Vampire
What the fuck
oh of course it was, yet another thing to love Germany for
>host nation gets BTFO of the only thing it's supposed to be good at
I know this exact feeling, felt it vivdly as fuck when riding on the bus today.
I think it might be this,been getting slightly worse over time
We are the ones watching over the universes. Travelling between them and putting it all straight.
We dont need any praise. We are the watchers of the worlds. We have the power we just have to realise it and it will unfold
I remember somehow getting intot eh crawlspace of my house, then finding a little doorway that took me below the crawlspace into a basement. But this basement was empty and shaped like how a parking garage is. So I walked down this passageway/garage until I hit another doorway. I entered this doorway and I was engulfed in the darkest black I have ever felt in my life. I was like 5 at the time.
Well, teeth falling out is an archetypical dream. Don't know about the other one. Earliest memories always seem to be of unpleasant things. I can point to my most vivid early memory as the reason I'm not scared of blood.
Stein/Stain is nothing; that's just a name change.
A whole LANDMASS has disappeared.
Look at this globe from the movie Dazed and Confused... notice anything?
what is happening is that the jin/demons/entities/aliens... whatever noun you want to use, are spinning the web faster. we are quickly approaching , what is aptly termed by /pol/, the Happening.
Do you know, I often feel, that my life has no sense. Really. Im nothing. I cant devote myself to one thing or deal. Seems im veryyy changeable. Everyday smth changes in mind. One day one thing is interesting for me, but if I will see another more interesting thing, I will forgot about last. I begin many things and never finish them.
And honestly I hate my character and I really don’t like my life. It is empty. No sense. I don’t know how to live then. But my rhythm of life doest let me think about it often and deep, but then I begin thinking about it i am crazy
THAT ISLAND IS WHERE THE REPTILIOD JEWS ARE FROM.
I guess the whole front side of my body probably looked like the best Halloween costume ever. I will always remember my blurry vision causing my to wipe my face and my hands completely covered in blood and saying "I'm bleeding" while feeling no fear even though I knew I was hurt.
Not that, but the other day I had a really random word that I had just typed show up in the caption. It was one of those times when the capcha resets so it wasn't even like I was just looking at it and subconsciously typed it.
But seriously, this thread is spookin me,
well fuck what is that on the left?
look at this world map
I might sound crazy but I distinctly remember Australia being further south east, I remember it being far away from any other countries, since when was it that close to Papua New Guinea?
That island matches up with terrain underwater
The universe actually resets all the time, we just dont notice because our memories are reset with it. Glitches do happen though, which give us a brief glimpse of whats actually happening.
I just read the book a few months ago and I was still under the impression it was "A vampire" despite the copy i read having "The Vampire" right on the cover.
Went to wikipedia to confirm and there's no way an A would make sense on that cover. Also new book this year apparently.
>Haileys comet is now Halleys comet
It's always been like that. That's how you know it's for poor people.
No, the 51st is the state of Guam. I can't even google this shit up to make sure I'm accurate anymore, but they officially achieved statehood sometime in late 1998. My family's from there, it was a pretty big fucking deal at the time.
just because you heard it pronounced that way in a stupid song doesn't mean it was ever spelled "haileys"
and im from the steinverse so it wasn't 'haileys' there it was halleys, i was born in the year halleys comet came through
It's always been Halley's Comet, people just hear the name Halley and assume the normal spelling when it's a girl's first name rather than Edmond Halley's last name. This is because they don't know shit.
