Its amazing. The first time I read something of this type was 3 years ago, and after that I've read it in several emails. I feel great respect for the researchers who sensed this feature of the human mind and decided to research on it to confirm it! Hats off!

Hey I've seen this before and could read it easily - didn't think I would have been able to read it this time cause of the medication - but believe it or not it is the easiestt thing I have read all week! lol xxx

no sweetie thry cancelled it - they had too many emergency admissions - not enough beds or operating theates! They are sending me to a private hospital in Glasgow soon but I was in such a state they put me on sedatives so haven't been on much! hopefully will be getting surgery in the next few weeks - til then I will still be hobbling around! xxx

I am sorry to hear that. I hope it happens for you soon. I know you will still be in some pain after the surgery but that will go and your back should feel better.

Well, I knew that I have a strange mind, but it was really hard for me to read. Yeah, I knew what it said alright, but I can't stand it when things aren't spelled right. Some people say that it's easier to read things phonetically, but I just remember spending all that time in grade school studying my spelling, and I expect to read things correctly. At least they didn't use text messaging lingo to write it! :)

I hear you on that. I don't understand any text messaging lingo. My friends make fun of me because I still have the old school cell phone, I don't do any of that texting stuff and rarely even use the phone.

Hi Jcahmpany, I cannot believe how cool that is!!! I never would have believed that anyone could so easily read words with scrambled letters. I still cannot believe it, even though I just read that as if the letters were exactly where they should be. That is absolutely amazing!!!

There is a secret behind this. Few experts dealing with words have found out that a person will be able to read jumbled words easily without any problem when the the first and the last letter of the word is same. Bur, probable if we jumble it in a way where the first and the last letter are made to arrange in middle - we might find very difficult to read it. WE take less time in raednig this than eadrngi.
