THE PAOMNNEHAL PWEOR OF THE HMUAN MNID.

Aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclace. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but teh wrod as a wlohe.

I swear I read half way through this before I realized what was going on, Its late here, and I'm a few beers into the evening, but I could read this as fast usual.

I thought it was interesting, spelling isn't everything...

    Yeah...I keep seeing these things...IMHO it was thought up by guys who didn't pay attention in English class to help them feel better about themselves...I've seen resumes come across my desk that were almost as bad as what you've shown...for those job seekers, spelling WAS everything...:tooth:

    Funny, because I was reading and improving My spelling and vocabulary at a very early age.
    Even before spell check / Internet.

    I'm not saying that poor spelling is in any way excusable, its just interesting what our brains and eyes are capable of deciphering.

    I'd be more impressed if our brains could decipher:

    1. What women are really telling us, rather than what they are saying
    2. how to program the clock on your vcr

    Actually, reading stuff like that is an every day event on internet forums.

    Yup, until I replace all the kids movies on digits/dvd....
