Huh? waht htat sya?

Mr Tomato sent me this interesting email today. Not sure what he is trying to tell me but he said he was able to read it with no problem at all and as it turns out I could read it just fine too. Guess that means one of two things......1) either we are both visually disturbed and meant to be together, or 2) we have been spending too much time helping Tobbers with homework lately.

You try and see if you can read it as easy as we could. Let me know...

fi yuo cna raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid too

Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

i cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. 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. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it whotuit a pboerlm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. Azanmig huh? yaeh and I awlyas tghuhot slpeling was ipmorantt! if you can raed tihs forwrad it


I think I remember reading about this in grad school but it is clear that reading and comprehension have NOTHING to do with the able to recall years later. Pretty interesting huh?
