    A friend of mine sent me this today. I find it almost amazingly true. See how fast you can read it.


    "Aoccdrnig to rseearch at an Elingsh uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are in; the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteers be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a toatl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae we do not raed ervey lteter by itslef, but rthaer the wrod as a wlohe."

    I read that senctence like it was nothing wrong with it. I heard that analogy a long time ago. It's pretty amazing how your mind works. I actually forgot about it though thanks for reminding me about it Hoosier. I wonder if other people knew about it?

    Yeah theres a part of your brain that controls recognition process, (I learned all about this in pyschology) but basically your brain associates the length of the word and the first and last letters of the word, and automatically puts it in place, so you'll read "LETTERS" but really it's "ltteers"

    I've read it so many times that I get the gist of it, and the amazingness has worn off.

    Well it's also a double-edged mental sword. Often I miss words that appear similar (realty-reality for example) because my brain DOESN'T read the whole word, and makes assumptions that are often untrue.
