Reading skill?

Can you read this? This came through on an Email and I thought you'd enjoy trying it. Apparently it came from Cambridge University and only 55 people out of 100 can read it.

"i cdnuolt blveiee taht i cluod aulacity 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 tghuhuot slpeling was ipmorantt!"

Whew - I had a terrible time typing it, too. You type and automatically want to type the correct spelling. :)
We're camping so I'm post dating this and trying out this new feature.
Back in a few days.

I can read it also, but I had to actually let my focus go a little first. I think it has something to do with right brained and left brained. I think, but I don't remember now. Have fun camping!

Isn't it crazy that we can read gibberish - God made amazing minds for us :)

Hope you're having a great time.
It is amazing that I can read it. I can read things backwards like wording on windows of fast food restaurants that is meant to be read outside.

I could read it, but it wasn't as easy as reading it correctly would have been. I think I have a headache...

This truly amazes me! Yes, I was able to read it just fine, it is so weird! Why do I worry so about my bad spelling??? God is amazing the way that he made us!

Hugs, Sharon

LOL! I can read it, should I be afraid? Perhaps those of us who can read it will be swept away to some secret location to have our brains probed! That is so amazing! I wanted to go and correct every word while I was reading it!

That's scarey! I could read it just fine -- whizzed right through it. And I used to do work as a proofreader, can you believe it???? Cora
