Just something i received today,the beauty of the human mind hey !!!

Just because it looks weird. Believe
it or not, you can read it.

I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd
waht I was rdgnieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the
hmuan mnid aoccdrnig to 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 pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe.

Sorry i started this thread then FE.

Maybe some like me do not visit Speakers Corner very often and thought it a little fun,thats all.

it is - as I said - an interesting fact, and no doubt there'll be many who don't know about it.

People keep on claiming that these examples are readable, but whichever way I look at it, it makes no sense at all to me. Just a jumble of letters.

Good heavens, and I thought my spelling was bad!

  ade.h 22:19 23 Jul 2006

Similarly, I have heard a claim that we only look at the first and last letter; but how, then, do we distinguish between babble and baffle or skirt and shirt?

Now that is strange, I managed to read that as fast as normal text. Now I wonder have I got the problem or have you ?

  Jimmy14 22:30 23 Jul 2006

with no problem, weird and interesting.


  skidzy 22:31 23 Jul 2006

Ade your so techinal minded ha ha Lol. a B is a B and f is a F ,no H in skirt as no K shirt i guess...crikey now im confused !!

I truly found it remarkable that it could be read.
