The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid, aoccdrnig to a rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it dseno't mtaetr in waht oerdr the ltteres in a wrod are, the olny iproamtnt tihng is taht the frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae.

    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.

    I couldn't believe that I could actually understand wha tI was reading. The phanenominal (sp?) power of the human mind, according to research at Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and the last letter begin in the right place.

    The rest can be a total mess and you can still read it without a problem. This is because the human mind does not read every letter by itself, but the word as a whole. Amazing huh? Yeah and I always thought spelling was important!

    ^That was kind of fun! :-p

    Actually it makes sense, especially if we view each word not as a
    collection of letters that represent sounds, but as a pictogram
    of sorts that only requires us to find all the letters -- the elements --
    in a word. It makes you think of words as being like hieroglyphics.

    I read something else about this, and it only works if you can predict the words coming. If the ones used are not as common as the ones in that paragraph, you can't understand it. It's still cool though!

    the quickie search function (see if it's already posted feature) isn't too accurate sometimes. Accidents happen, I've made many mistakes and double posts myself, no worries Sammysmom.

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.
