Great minds think alike :P My friend and I did communicate in such a manner before via email for a period of time. Initally it was cos of typo error and subsequently we did it for fun and then we forgot about it after we become proficient in typing. LOL.

Weemam. Did you know that is one of the reasons that they knew I didn't have Alzheimer's, after first suspecting it, because a person with Alzheimer's would not be able to read that or so they believe that, I do hope they are right. And yes I can read it with no difficulty.

I don't think you have to have a great mind to read it and I think the amount of people who can will be higher than 55 out of 100, although I'm sure you do have a great mind, but it has been shown that we don't have to see every letter in a word to understand and read it, the mind is amazing and reading is a funny thing - if it wasn't then dyslexics would have no problems with it, my son is severly dyslexic and his brain cannot interprate or see letters and words like people without dyslexia.

Oh yes I could read that. A friend of mine forwarded this also to me. LOL I can't type blind so I often switch the letters in a word but as far as I know everyone can read my typos.

I was sent this one also. It's great isn't it! I think it's amazing what the human mind can do. But I did forward it to some of my friends and there are people who can't read it! So I guess it depends on how your brain actually sees things! For example those 3d pictures that you have to really stare at in order to see the pictur... I can never see them, no matter how long i look!

I always told my husband I had a great mind and this here proves it..lol I was amazed that I could understand every word but it was kinda cool . Be a cool way to write in code for kids just exchange the last letter for the first and vice versa. This I can understand pig latin is another story..lol

Yes, I have seen that before. It is amazing we can actually train our minds to read nonsense like that. makes me feel better about my typos though because I know people can still read them.

Yay! I have a great mind! I think I've seen something like this somewhere else wherein there were x's instead of the letters in the wrong place. I could read that as well. Now I don't feel so bad about typos.

Well, English is not my first language, but I could read it. It must be the "phenomenal power of my mind", lol. Interesting research, though. I had no idea that "the only important thing is that the first and last letter be in the right place". "Amazing". Thanks for posting this. It´s entertaining. Have a nice evening. XX Dana

I couldnt believe that I could actually understand what I was reading. The phenomenal power of the human mind, according to a research in Cambridge University, it doesn't matter in what order the letters in a word are, the only important thing is that the first and last letter be 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! If you can read this forward it. Did I get it right, weemam...Phew!!!
